    Anthony Watmough has a burning ambition … to be recognised as the greatest rugby league forward in the world. And he has a confession … his days at Manly might be numbered.

    This is just 'let's find something to hang a headline on' stuff. of course watmough will want a payrise, he's earnt one! and of course it will be difficult to manage the cap, it always is.

    Yet in the Smellograph - Choc wants to become the next Steve Menzies.

    Good job player manager.

    This is where the NRL should be looking at concessions or some blueprint for clubs that have brought in players from their junior ranks. I can't say yet what age they would have to be at the club from, 16,17 or 18 years of age.

    But players like Choc should be given some concession after the age of 28 or so. This would allow clubs to keep special juniors as one club players...something the NRL harp on about as being great for the game.

    We can't keep having stories like the menzies debacle

    They're not "salary cap exempt" but exempt for around $100,000 of their pay

    If Orford stays and some of the mentioned are forced out due to cap restrictions, it will be a tragedy.  I just can't understand why we would be paying him to stay.
