REPORTS: Manly prop considering exit

Manly and New Zealand prop Martin Taupau is considering a move away from the Sea Eagles, after being shopped around earlier on this season.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Taupau is feeling unwanted after Manly put him up for sale earlier this season, and the Sydney Roosters could be in the box seat for the 28-year-old.

Roosters chairman Nick Politis has reportedly met with Taupau, although has denied Sydney’s interest in the forward.

Taupau is currently contracted to the Sea Eagles until the end of the 2020 season, meaning he’s still 14 months from negotiating with other clubs.

If he considers asking from a release from the club, it is believed Manly will grant him that release. Taupau has played 23 games this season for the Sea Eagles, and averages 159.7 running metres and 27.8 tackles per contest.

Isn't Uncle Nicks payment plan of choice the skins golf games?

Uncle Nick can't play golf to save his life, but that doesn't stop him playing a round at $5K per hole.

Shock horror......, "I couldn't win a hole and (insert name here) got me for $5K on each of the 18 holes."

A tidy round for a $90K win.

So it doesn't sound like they are cheating the cap. It sounds like they are smart to me.

Hardly surprising. The roosters will keep buying and buying until they win a premiership. Hopefully they never do. No one likes them expect the players wallets and all players know that they sell their souls once they go there. You go there for a chance at a premiership and I cant really think of anyone that has left the club a better player. I know we just signed a young bloke from there, but hes not counted due to lack of 1st grade time.

They have plenty room under that sombrero .. next year they lose Black ferguson .. but gain Brett Morris (Dogs), Ryan Hall (ESL & English International), Angus Creighton (Souths) .. and now they have money left for a 900K Marty Taupau .. you gotta wonder why the NRL Auditors are targeting Parra and Cronulla but are not touching the Chooks ??

Pretty sure Manly would foot the bill for a significant portion, but carry on believing the Roosters would pay the full 900k if it suits you better.

Why would Manly be paying anything if Taupau asks for a release

A short history lesson.
Easts had a couple of seasons in the 1960s (???) where they just bought players so that other teams could not get them. Then they would just play them in reserve grade. I ***think ** d*** Thornett (League and Union international) was one of them, who they bought from Parramatta. Not long after that was when the League introduced the Salary Cap. This is many years ago and the old brain cells are a little dim and while the detail may be vague, the circumstances are pretty spot on. Seems not much has changed :)

Pretty much what Manly did also. Both painted by same brush.
But what goes around comes around and it came around for Manly and believe me it will come around for East’s. And I will be dancing on their graves.

Ferguson
Cronk
Nuisala
All departing

Morris
Hall
Arriving........not sure why the nrl would be to concerned.
I feel there’s a lot of jealousy out there directed at easts, I’m guilty of it at times, but they have a strong club, winning culture, stable board, great location and top shelf pathways for any player at any stage in their career.
I have a very close friend who played for the roosters several years ago and he said the treatment was like being on a kangaroo tour all year round.
There was the rumour of SBW returning, if that’s true I’m not sure Tapau would be able to fit after next season.
