I would seriously target Ryan James! I know the poor bugger has had a rough run of injuries, but when he is on the park he pushes for SOO selection. Only for medium money and 3 years max
A 30 year old who’s had 3 ACLs? That’s who you want to sign?
The answer is no.
If they want to play the comp in Gladstone they better get a move on and get everyone there asap!
All games have to be played in the one state. That’s clear. But it makes no difference where as the stands are empty. It’s a tv sport now.
Tamworth? Gladstone? Gosford? Cairns? I don’t care, pick somewhere and move every player and coach and their families there asap.
It’s not as if players are going to be able to be running around the city wherever they are anyway. A lockdown is a lockdown.
yeah just announce during the coverage of the Storm vs Sharks game … Momirovski is on the sidelines and will be flying out tonight with the Melbourne Storm … and Harry Grant is Staying in Sydney and will be at the Tigers game tomorrow … i wonder if he will be playing … ??
Can’t play tomorrow as he wasn’t named in the original 21.
Nor trained a single session with the club.
They have both had a few training sessions with the other club. But just not in the past 5-6 weeks. That’s why Grant will be on the bench next week
Happy for the swap. I hope Momo hasn’t cost much above the minimum, as at the moment he sits as our 4th choice centre, and I disagree with a lot on here that he is versatile enough for wing or fullback.
He’s our second choice centre. But the difference between him and Mbye isn’t a lot.
The difference between Grant and Walters is significant
The NRL is run by muppets, plain and simple.
And as i said a few weeks ago the salary will need to go down in the future. The NRL needs to be putting a certain %, say 10% into a savings fund. They simply can’t be spending all the media money every year and not banking enough.
There are too many players on a million, or close to it, and that’s not sustainable. Foxtel may no longer exist in a couple of years time. Streaming is rising, tv is dying. There will be no bidding wars. If ESPN get NRL for international audiences asap then that’s some extra revenue for now but they won’t be paying much for it.
If Joey thinks the NRL should be managing it’s money better and diversifying their revenue streams (which they certainly could) he needs to consider that the players will be worse off as a consequence.
I guess the boys will just keep training and what it does do is give us fresh depth if injuries strike in FG.
I wouldn’t say fresh depth. I’d say unfit depth.
He means match fit I am sure
Yeah, anyone not in the 17 for NRL duties will fall dramatically behind their rivals in terms of match fitness and sharpness.
Training is very different.
