Off contract players who won't be re-signed

This is the list off zerotackle.com of players whos’ contracts ends in 2016;
Josh Addo-Carr, Josh Aloiai, Jack Buchanan, Tyler Cassel, Michael Chee-Kam, Manaia Cherrington, Josh Drinkwater, Asipeli Fine, Dallas Graham, Jordan Grant, Rod Griffin, Dene Halatau, Delouise Hoeter, Justin Hunt, Chris Lawrence, Lamar Liolevave, Jack Littlejohn, Billy McConnachie, Nathan Milone, Jesse Parahi, Chance Peni, Bayley Sironen, Sauaso Sue

GONE - Delouise Hoeter is confirmed no longer with the club.
Chance Peni might leave ala Seve as he has been allegedly informed he’ll start in Harold Matts or whatever.

Asipeli Fine - he was very close with Sitaleki Akoula, hasn’t had much time in the top grade - can see him attempting to get a deal elsewhere, maybe reunite with Sita…. Can’t see him sticking around.

Buchanan and Drinkwater are depth, always had been - always will be. Might be the last year for both of them.

Dene Halatau & Chris Lawrence - Retire / Superleague, along with Farah - what do you think?

Guys like - Addo-Carr, Aloiai, Cassell, Chee-Kam - could all get new deals depending how they perform throughout the year.

Other guys like Dallas Graham, Lamar Liolevave, Jordan Grant and Forum Favourite - Milone really need to prove their worth or they’ll be another Matt Groat scenario, never heard of again.

MUST KEEPS - Would have to be Cherrington & Sue. Integral parts of the future.

Then we’ve got guys like Littlejohn, Hunt, Griffin, McConnachie and Parahi - one year deals for a reason? See what they can do and then re-sign it’s worth it?

Bayley Sironen? He’s only young…Depending on what happens with Curtis, he might be kept around as a package deal. Heard he’s gutsy and has the potential to be twice the player as his brother.

Good post Demps,would really like to see the Ipswich boys and Parahi do well this year….Rankin and Chee Kam could be the surprise packets and I hope they do well also…

I’ve got high hopes for Parahi….
Our last union recruit didn’t see a minute of first grade though.

Ipswich boys… who knows when we’ll see them in firsts, gotta agree tho.
They all show a low of promise.

most of these players futures will come down to how the 1st grade team start the season.if we are getting flogged each week then JT needs to give these players a go to see how they handle 1st grade. however i doubt that that will happen JT will stick with the same players unless there is injuries, he just does not come across as a good coach.

Outside of Sue and Cherrington, there’s a lot of question marks isn’t there… Probably why we’re second favourites for the spoon.
As you say, a lot will depend on how they perform in 2016.

Lawrence is an interesting one, if he really kicks on in the backrow this year then he should be re-signed.

If we let him go we will have more money for big recruits.

Lawrence will probably be offered a deal to stay, but not as much coin as he’s getting this year. Cherrington and Sue will be the priorities IMO. Half a dozen or soe will be wait and watch prospects.

You’ll need to redo your maths. His contract will be finished, so next year, currently, he costs us $0. Hard to pick up anyone else for $0.

If we re-sign him, it will probably be for a more modest salary. You can’t use a modest salary to pick up big recruits.

But we do not have to pay him.

There’s no real point discussing this further with you, right? You appear to consistently lack the comprehension.

No, that is right - he is such a good bloke, he will play for us for nothing.

Don’t no what you have against him to be honest, if they sign him up again it will be for much less and he would be happy with that. He was one of our best forwards last year and I am positive he will improve even more this year. I am all for loyalty on both sides if it warrants it, and in this case, I believe it is.

Russ,I agree with your perspective on Rowdy,I also think he will have a standout year in the backrow,if he stays injury free, he will be a big assett in the forwards…if he resigns next year he will be on modest money,but that won’t worry him,he wants to stay a Tiger…

Really, that’s our nsw cup team all off contract. Some will get a chance and take it and hopefully re-sign. Others will get a chance and do little, while others won’t get a chance and will either go elsewhere looking for an op or stay and fight it out one more year with us.

You’d have to think at present Cherry, Sue, Sirro jnr jnr, graham will be the only certainties to be re-signed.

There were rumours months ago that Lawrence had re-signed for a couple more years for like 5-600k in total. This potentially included this season (on a lower salary but with an extended contract and job security). Perhaps this was a pending deal based on form in the first few months of 2016.
