    Roger Tuivasa-sheck is off to the warriors for 3 years.

    800k per season.

    Tomkins has been granted a release on compassionate grounds. Heading back to the Super League.

    No way. It will free up salary cap space at the Rorters to buy more players, you watch.

    What's upsetting is that all the roosters fans are wondering why tpa's couldn't cover the difference to keep him.
    The difference was allegedly over 400k.

    Roosters only offered Foran 890k including the TPAs.
    SLime offered 1.2m

    Whats best for his football is 1.2m > premierships

    I was about to say it's good to see the salary cap finally effecting the roosters but I think you guys are right, they'll e probably shed him and spend another cool million somewhere else. Hardly a level playing field....they have a Brookie oval salary cap.

    Latrell Mitchell is mean't to be the next superstar!

    Even without him they could put Ferguson at fullback, SKD back at centre and Nene Mcdonald to the wing

    Yeah, I was thinking exactly this; they have high hopes for McDonald. I do think the cap is the reason though, because I don't believe for one second they were happy to let him walk.

    Gus did mention they had Latrell Mitchell in the lower grades during last Sunday's telegraph. I dare say he already knew that RTS was halfway out the door.

    IMO the Dogs are bigger cap rorters than the Roosters. There is talk they are going to sign Vidot before June 30. I mean fair dinkum when does it stop? They upgrade everyone on their books and continue signing any players they want. It's a dead set joke.

    We had a junior player last year called Latrell Schaumkel.

    What are the odds of 2 people playing league called Latrell? For that matter I'm surprised there are 2 people in the world called Latrell.

    Probably named after Latrell Sprewell, a former US basketball player best known for choking his coach.

    His brothers name is Shaq so I assumed the parents are basketball fans. I figured Latrell was some American sportspersons name.

    So the Rorters lose Mini and RTS in consecutive years.

    I hate to say it but watch them go after Turbo Tom or Gutho.
