The reason they couldn’t hold onto Matterson and force eels to release Stefano was Matterson was leaving the club either way - if they kept him after November they would’ve had to start paying his contract which would’ve come out of our cap and it would’ve been cheaper for eels.

Eels knew that so they denied the Stefano release and waited for Matterson. I’d much prefer it this way compared to having to pay Matterson to play for eels.

What are you on about - Matterson was signed until the end of 2021- he wasn’t going anywhere without a release. We wouldn’t of paid parra a cent. We would have been paying a disgruntled sook to sit out the season if he refused to play - nothing more. So he would have been a good bargaining chip if we hadn’t been so keen to release him.

There’s no way the club could’ve kept him his position was untenable. Keep him in reserve grade and you’re paying his contract to do nothing but upset the playing group.

The club had no choice but to release him, and they didn’t want to pay him to play at another club so they let him go

The original post was about why didn’t we keep him a few months longer to force Parras hand in releasing Stefano. Someone posted that he was going anyway and that we would have been paying parra for him to play if we didn’t release him. Thats what my post is about - nothing about the untenable situation - i couldn’t give a rats that we released him - however we played it really badly.

That’s what I said, and it’s true. As soon as it’s past November you start paying a players contract. If we kept him after November we would have to start paying him when he would get a release either way and it would come out of our cap. That’s why he got released at that time.

The club tried getting a player swap from clubs but clubs knew they could wait and he would get a release anyway. Club was in a crap position, lose-lose really and we can thank Matto for that.

I know all that - we are talking about 2 different things - I am merely commenting on the choices we had - yep we could have paid him and made him sit out the season - we chose not to but in doing so we reduced any chance of using his dummy spit to our advantage.

Unfortunately there was no way we could’ve taken advantage of it. Better than paying him to sit in reserves and go elsewhere after a few months

The player managers and the NRL(Farah case) know were a soft touch,and we always end up losing out.And when the boot is on the other foot,we never win
Need to show some spine at some stage or this wont change.Eels timing wasnt ideal,but still do-able and we got rolled by everyone again
Maybe we need Marina back…?

Show me the club that keeps the agitating player, legitimately. I honestly can’t think of a single player that stayed on with a club when he didn’t want to. It’s lose-lose.

Gorden Tallis is the only one I can think of who sat out time, but that was his own decision (rather than play for St George), they didn’t pay him and it was during Super League. Tallis trained the whole year with the Broncos and St George didn’t pay him, they just refused to release him.

Josh Addo Carr at Storm.

Even he is getting off his contract early. When a player wants out the club has no choice unfortunately.

How long has Jennings signed with Wests tigers for?

This is the last year of his contract

Unless we extend him, good wingers are hard to come by.

No thanks 😂 we’ve got Bradley and Cini joining our top squad next year.

One thing people seem to forget when talking about our cap for next hear is that we’ll be paying Joey Leilua a decent amount next year, raiders are paying like half his contract this year but next year the club takes his whole salary.

Could be the same for Doueihi too? I can’t remember.

Liddle looks a little stockier there in that pic … that should help strengthen his body with some more muscle mass over those brittle bones of his … 🙂

Multiple players have mentioned he’s become a gym junkie during his rehab working his upper body a lot. He needed it

My source tells me that CHN is in talks with the eagles and the tigers . So I guess whoever comes up with the best offer .

We would surely have to be in a much better financial position to make an offer than Manly…

Pretty sure manly have a full squad too… unless Fainu isn’t being counted because he’s a stood down?

Hasler is good at convincing players to join up too he’s a very good man manager
