So Fox Sports, the Daily Telegraph and SMH are all reporting that Penrith are currently being picked apart because they made a GF. Why does this same rule never apply to the Rorters?Looks like the Bunnies have folded and will now just take a larger payment.
It proved the sticking point in negotiations with South Sydney, but the Roosters have snared Joseph Suaalii after taking a gamble they believe will pay off.www.smh.com.au
So the rort just keeps on happening.
It's always subterfuge when it comes to the chooks. Eg-Media reports they will need to shed Angus Chricton's million dollar contract in order to sign the most expensive junior in NRL history. They went on about it for weeks.
Everyone speculated on where he might end up before changing their focus to the off season signing frenzy. Roosters then clear a space in their squad by releasing a 20 year old who has played one game and sign Suuali with a minimum of fuss.
The focus is now on the hatred that exists between South's and the Chooks rather than how they managed to fit another $500K player on their books.
They upgrade players whenever they want and it never eats into their cap. Extend players who they thought were moving on or retiring (Morris twins and Friend), and find a spare $400k to sign SBW mid season after winning the last two premierships. Then they somehow acquire the most expensive kid in League or Union.
Wait for the usual, he signed for unders because he wants to play for the Roosters so bad. Never mind the market value rule folks.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are being slapped with a $375k penalty to their cap for offering old Robbie Farah an ambassador role at the club after football.
