    The Roosters have chopped some players of late. They've got rid of Masoe, Perrett/s, Anasta, Mitchell, BJ Leulia. Myles left a season ago and he was never replaced with a big name and he would have been on decent coin.

    Not defending them, but their line up is hardly star studded so I could see why they may have some cash laying around. Their pack are all young guys and outside of Mitchell Pearce, Mini, and SKD they don't have any big name backs. Maloney comes into the side but I could see how they may have room for $BW and Jennings.

    Look at our line up and compare the relative worth between our best 17 and theirs.

    Good luck to young Dean Whare - he should get the starting centre spot now at Penrith.

    SBW is only on the books for 2013, so a few backended deals will allow the Chooks to sign some established Players easy.

    The Panthers are probably chipping in some of his salary as well

      I see the problem. Having 2 x SBWs in the side was always going to cause cap problems. They might have to consider ditching one of them.

      Correct.

      Sonny Bill Williams and Sared Baerea Wargreaves.

      How many Ego's are there going to be at the Roosters next year? Jennings is too good to train, SBW and his boxing circus and JWH for starters. Can't wait till they string a few losses together.

      SBW's head is so big I don't know how they can fit 1 under a cap, let alone 2.

      They'll have SBW, JWH and SKD. I'm surpised they haven't tried to sign DCE.

      Haha. And still they have had NFI. Although I do tip them as a contender this year.

      If you think they are over the cap we must be screwed.

      They are still getting steered around the park by a player who is proving that talent skips a generation.

      Ha ha, last year, for ****s and giggles, I tried to put a team together for SuperCoach called The Hyphenators, the prerequisite being your name had to be hyphenated to get a start. Couldn't quite get a team together. Maybe this year :)

        The other day I was shocked to see a photo of a Roosters player who didn't have his arms covered in ink sleeves.

        Manly was blamed for it, but Sydney City (aka Eastern Suburbs) have always been the club that 'buys' its premierships. They have to because their only juniors come from the South Sydney comp. A very successful Leagues Club and money people living in the district are the only reason that club survives...and thrives

        I thought it hadnt been approved of yet and in fact wasnt expected to be through before the season started. Musta read the wrong item. And how does that explain Jennings by the way
