Manly's Contract Negotiations I have noticed other clubs are starting to tie up their players contracts long before the previous one has expire. Don't know if anyone know's but an example yesterday:- The Parramatta National Rugby League Club is pleased to announce that player Mark Riddell has today extended his playing contract until the end of the 2009 season. "I'm really excited to be staying at Parramatta. I love everything about this place and I'm looking forward to the years ahead," Riddell said. "The Club has shown a lot of faith in me and I know the best way to repay that is by helping the team to be successful," he added. Parramatta Eels Chief Executive Denis Fitzgerald says it is great news for the Club. "Mark has impressed everyone since he arrived a couple of seasons ago and he is a very popular player both amongst his team mates and with the supporters," Mr Fitzgerald said. Others that have extended their contracts are Robbie Farrah for example. I think NOW is the time to think about players like:- 1. Anthony Watmough 2. Brent Kite 3. Brett Stewart (already been done) It would be ridiculous if these players went to market. Imagine Choc playing for the Storm or something. It would be a sin !!! What's everyone else think?
