Zorba mentioned it today,but it was actually posted on facebook a little while back that Manly have signed Caleb Pese on a 2 year deal.He is not technically a junior kiwi rep,but he was named in their under 18 side(jr kiwis is a different side).He is from the warriors flegg side and has played centre and lock mainly,not sure where we are looking at him playing but will be in our flegg side next year.

John Bateman to ask for more money from the Raiders (even though under contract).

I need to do what's best for my family. They know that.
John Bateman

(lol)

https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/10/01/john-bateman-to-seek-upgrade-future-clouded-at-raiders/

NRL.com spoke to Bateman in the nation's capital on Tuesday ahead of this weekend's grand final against the Sydney Roosters, with the Raiders back-rower conceding he was likely to consider his options in the off-season if he was unable to gain an upgrade.

Bateman still has two more years to run on his deal with the Raiders, but recently acquired the services of player manager Isaac Moses.

Bateman's deal with the Raiders is worth between $350,000 and $400,000 โ€“ with the 26-year-old likely to attract double that money if he was granted permission to negotiate with rival NRL clubs.

STOP DISLIKING THE MESSENGER YA BUGGERS!

I'll dislike yer faces!!!!!

Looks like Solomone Kata has moved to rugby with the brumbies,Jaimin Jolliffe a prop has moved from Sharks to raiders(playing in todays state league final against Burleigh),Kyle Paterson a hooker from Raiders is moving to Sharks and Previously Jack Hetherington who was moving from Panthers to Raiders is staying put.
This is from the NRL official site and can't confirm anything....They have Lachlan Croker as signed through 2021,Cust signed through 2020,Keppie signed through 2021 and Olakau'atu signed through 2021 with a club option for 2022.The rest of the squad contract lengths look spot on so don't know if they have re-signed on quietly or just been updated or just B.S.

A host of Origin and international stars have been offered to Super League clubs according to League Express.

The newspaper claims that Cronullaโ€™s Josh Dugan and the Wests Tigersโ€™ Josh Reynolds lead the list of players to have been shopped to UK clubs.

All the players share the same management company.


Neither of the players are off contract, but the Sharks and Tigers have told them they are free to explore other options.

Another two Tigers players in Russell Packer and Chris Lawrence have been offered around.

Newcastleโ€™s Mason Lino and Warriors duo Sam Lisone and Taane Milne are available and open to a move overseas.

Canberra duo Jack Murchie and Sam Williams are on the market, while other players include off-contract Gold Coast halfback Ryley Jacks, Chris Lawrence and Brisbane prop Patrick Mago.
Aidan Sezerโ€™s grand final loss to the Roosters may have been his last in a Raiders jersey, with George Williams impeding arrival in the ACT.

According to League Weekly, the 28-year-old is heading on to Huddersfield to work under former Canberra hooker Simon Woolford.

Wests Tigers playmaker Josh Reynolds has been reportedly discussed as a potential signing at Gold Coast.

Reynolds, who is on around $800,000 at the Tigers, was granted permission from the club to negotiate with rivals about a new home in 2020 but is yet to secure a deal.

โ€œHeโ€™s currently being offered around in the Super League, but I think his preference is to remain in Australia,โ€ Fox Leagueโ€™s James Hooper told Triple Mโ€™s Rush Hour with MG.



โ€œThe Tigers are trying to cut a deal with an NRL rival.

โ€œThe Gold Coast has been mentioned. I know theyโ€™ve discussed it, but they havenโ€™t been able to sharpen the pencil.โ€

Former Parramatta star Semi Radradra appears likely to stay in rugby union after a number of stunning performances for Fiji at the Rugby World Cup.

Radradra met with Canterbury powerbrokers before the tournament kicked off to express an interest in luring back to the code in 2021 after his deal runs out with French rugby club Bordeaux.

Eels coach Brad Arthur also said heโ€™d be keen to bring him back to the club where he scored 82 tries in 94 games.

But after a number of eye-catching games, The Daily Telegraph reports NRL clubs simply wonโ€™t have the money to sign Radradra.

From Twitter:

Hearing Warriors five-eighth Blake Green may have a had a tour of the Panthers Academy yesterday. Not sure if both parties have mutual interest or not (as he still has a year to run on his Warriors deal), but would be a good back-up half if Penrith were to sign him.
