DOGS TO PINCH MANLY GUN HOPPA
Manly are about to lose one of their best young prospects to the Bulldogs - if Trent Barrett gets the coaching job there as expected.

Gun centre/fullback Albert Hopoate wants to join older brother William at the Dogs and has a good relationship with Barrett from their Manly days together.

Manly want to keep young 'Hoppa', who played NSW under-16s alongside Newcastle's Bradman Best, but has had his career ground to a halt with two knee reconstructions in the past two years.

The youngster was actually considering emulating his brother's move to go on a two-year Mormon mission but has shelved those plans to concentrate on getting his football career on track.

The Broncos are going to desperate lengths to try and keep superstar David Fifita at the club.
The Courier Mailreports the club has told injured outside back Jack Bird he is free to exit the club immediately as it looks to free up salary cap space to throw more cash at Fifita.

“A major development for the Broncos, they have told Jack Bird, they’re (smh) injure-prone utility he is free to leave immediately,” he said.

Bird, a former NSW Origin centre, has played just 17 games for the Broncos in three years due to a cruel run of injuries, including his latest, a torn ACL suffered in

(what? where? who?)

DENIED BY RUGBY AUSTRALIA
crippled financially by the coronavirus and having laid off 40 per cent of its staff, RA says promising Suaalii $1 million a year is crazy.

“Financial offers being speculated in the media presently are totally fanciful and are being propagated by the usual suspects whose sole interest it is to inflate and misrepresent contract values,” said RA interim CEO Rob Clarke.

“At this stage, there has been no agreement between Joseph, his family or his representation.

“Joseph Suaalii is an upstanding young man and a talented rugby player. We have made it no secret that we would like to keep Joseph within the rugby pathway.”

David Fifita will join the Gold Coast Titans on a three-year-deal, Mal Meninga has confirmed.
The Titans Head of Performance told Fox League’s Super Saturday: “It’s a great signing for the club... What a great acquisition for the club going forward.”

“For us it’s a huge kick,” Meninga said, but warned rivals: “It’s only the start of what we’re trying to achieve.”

The 20-year-old will ink a deal reportedly worth a record-breaking $3.5 million.

Maligned Titans forward Bryce Cartwright is on the verge of quitting the Gold Coast club as he weighs up his future in the NRL.


News Corp can reveal Cartwright is seeking a release from his contract at the Titans to return to Sydney for personal reasons.

Cartwright was a notable omission from the Titans team for last week’s loss to Melbourne and will not face his former club Penrith on Sunday afternoon at Cbus Super Stadium.

It is understood Cartwright has returned to Sydney with his family and may have played his last game for the Titans.

Australian rugby is set to re-sign Brumbies speedster and former Sea Eagles playmaker Tom Wright as Wallabies duty looms for the in-form winger.

The Herald can reveal that while rugby has lost out to Manly in the fight for gun Sydney schoolboy Tolu Koula and is also losing hope of securing the services of 16-year-old phenomenon Joseph Suaalii, it does expect to notch a win with Wright's signature on a new two-year deal.

RA was intent on signing the Newington College Year 12 student but lost its chance, with Koula opting to stay with Manly - where he plays SG Ball - on a two-year deal with a third-year option.

Suaalii :

The teenager is set to put pen to paper on a $2.5 million deal, according to Fox League’s James Hooper, while the Rabbitohs have requested a special exemption be made for Suaalii to be able to play in the NRL at 17 years of age.

The current rule says players must be 18 years old to play in the NRL.

The deal would already have been approved if Suaalii was to play for the Roosters, but as it is Souths, the approval will have to take 5 mins.

The Dragons have rocketed to favouritism to sign gritty Bulldog forward Adam Elliott, seeing him as the player to replace hitman Tyson Frizell.

With Frizell off to the Knights in 2021, the Dragons have been on the lookout for a busy edge forward and see Elliott as the best on the market.

The tough forward has been unable to come to terms with the Bulldogs, attracting the attention of both the Dragons and Raiders.

- the moron. oops I mean from the mole.
