We paid Packer our highest paid prop 575k p.a.
Matulino was not wanted when we signed him due to injury Newcastle and Warriors went cold.
The figures reported on WT are nonsense designed to make us look incompetent. The numbers would add up to cap of 12m if you add them
Up.

Interesting. If different sources/people report such different figures very hard to determine who really knows and who is talking through their hat. Just found his contract particularly interesting because of the vast difference in reported figures.
Regardless hope he is good value for us.

I really couldn't give a rat's what we paid for Matulino. As long as I see him playing at his best in our jersey, that's all I need; the money is a matter for administrators, coaches and CEOs, although it does seem that we have plenty of those on our forum.

I heard 700k was more accurate.

Say we're paying Packerlino 1 million between them, that is a lot better value than what we were paying the fake captain and Ava.

I can recall reading Matulino's deal being worth $475.

So this is way off then ...
http://i.stuff.co.nz/sport/league/91908 ... ers-report
Who knows? Could be including TPAs, or could be wild speculation from someone with no info inside the club. Or could be right.
The 475k figure came from somewhere here who has inside info. I think it may have been Yossarian.
Im fairly certain I recall an interview with (I think) the Kelly dude who came to the club this year on MMM. It wasn’t long after the Matulino signing, he was asked about it and the reported price tag. From memory he actually said ‘it’s more like $450-$500kpa’

I take every player's price tag with a grain of salt.

Yeah true , especially hen you have no idea if the figures quoted are with or without TPA's

Actually it would be interesting to find out how many players in the NRL actually get TPA's

Don’t count your pennies with Packer, he is our best acquisition and should be captain next year. He’s a tackling machine with Arthur Beetson style offloads, throw in the mongrel as a bonus!

Not as many as you would think....Kenty said on NRL 360 earlier in the Year something like 6 or 7% of players receive Non-Club Affiliated TPA's..The elite players and personality players of course..

I don't think many journeyman of standard NRL player would be attractive to sponsors for promotional purposes...

So we are talking on average 2 players per club

Until we get to the Boosters who have 60% of their rosters in TPA's or about 17 players

Kent made one good point the other night , since TPA's were introduced the salary cap has tripled

Do we really need them at all or should they be limited to say 3 players per club

I think any sort of restrictions will be viewed by the RLPA as a restraint... we need to find another way.

Make them all take up celebrity boxing :D

These blokes have the best deal , they've ever had , lets see what they offer now they are supposedly part of the game and its integrity / finances

When they don't do anymore than they currently offer , shove that down their throats and take them to court for falsely taking liberties on our games behalf

Watch them squirm out of that

That sounds too much to me. I hope it turns out okay. I reckon we've overpaid for Reynolds, Packer and Matulino.

I'd make them all play for the glory of playing for the Tigers and give the money away in free grog at the game.
