Still had a fair side in though , and of course we know they have at least two sides at their disposal ( or almost ).

They also signed young Walker from the Donkeys to go with Flanagan, Lam and Keary.

Even with the appetiser of watching Ryan Hall not score his first NRL try, I couldn’t bring myself to watch it at all. It just sickens me the obvious and flagrant corruption they operate under with Politis there.

Hall would be the worst player in the NRL.

Makes our wingers look like Cec Blinkhorn and Harold Horder.

Caused a bit of a heated discussion in my house last night. My partner couldn't take it that her roosters got the rub of the green so often and that everyone can see how ridiculous their claims to the side being under the cap is. She did at least admit that the refs clearly hate manky though

There was an article where I think it was the ceo of the raiders saying that it was an unwritten rule that teams spend a max of 10k of non cap included relocation expenses.

But now naughty nick has flown the gang out business class, put them up in a penthouse and provided them with many other expensive items... he says that the unwritten rule should go out the window. 10k was deemed 'reasonable' but the sbw sideshow has blown that out of the water.

"They" (the nrl?) did say the kids toys are included in the cap.

I'll try and find the article...

edit:




Bemused Canberra officials have taken aim at the NRL for allowing the Sydney Roosters to go all out on accommodating star recruit Sonny Bill Williams and his family in a flashy penthouse apartment overlooking the harbour.

The Roosters are footing the expensive bill for Williams, his wife and four young children as they isolate for two weeks before the 35-year-old joins his teammates.


The NRL confirmed the Roosters are allowed to pay for Williams' accommodation and all reasonable relocation costs for up to 28 days, which are exempt from the salary cap.

But the Raiders were stunned to learn the premiers had been given the green light to splash unlimited cash on their global star, and the "unspoken rule" had always been a soft cap of around $10,000 for any flights, accommodation and even removalists.

The Green Machine have plenty of experience footing similar relocation bills for their large English contingent, as well as Queenslanders and New Zealanders. They were once denied flying two of their English stars business class.

The pigs have well and truly replaced the humans in the 'farm' that is the nrl.

The Roosters blatant salary cap cheating and the biased referee decisions in their favour make me so disillusioned with the NRL. After last weeks game against the Titans who were robbed by decisions I have vowed never to watch another Roosters game live. I will record the game and if they get beaten I will watch if they win I delete. Life is too short to waste time watching a corrupt team win.

IMO Ryan Hall came to the NRL about 5-6 years too late. If he came in at least 2014, 2015 he could (would) have been a sensation. Now he's just old and lucky that his career managed to see him wanted by the Chooks.

The Cheatsters were red flagging big time when hiring the NRL auditor in Ian Shubert to help manage their salary cap - a slightly vested interest 1 would think ???
It's almost been "The Untouchables" ever since - no questions asked - no questions answered.
The new cover, is how players want to go there for unders, as Nick Politis will offer them great advice for life after football...its really called "where to hide the extra money "

And V'landys new line seems to be "Oh you're all only complaining because its the Roosters. You'd be fine if it was any other team."

Talk about tone deaf. What a goose. He took that straight from the Beattie play book.
