    The NRL are so far refusing to register the contract of Sam Burgess at the Rabbitohs, saying the club needs to get rid of more players in order to fit the 2014 Clive Churchill Medallist under the salary cap.
    Channel Seven are reporting that even after offloading Dylan Walker, the Bunnies need to free up more space in order to have Burgess' contract ratified.



    It is believed Origin back-rower Chris McQueen will sign with either the Titans or Panthers in coming days.


    It has been rumoured that Tim Grant could also be let go soon.

    I think we could see another player forced out, just who is the question?

        but they are still afforded the luxury of having troll features registered @ his old contract value!

          But we didn't do it for one player. Big difference imo

          I wonder what the chances are that Sam Burgess is the international player we are looking to sign?

          Probably not a reality but maybe souths are no chance and lol @ $0uff$

          It's getting worse for Souths, panthers so no to McQueen
          Penrith boss Phil Gould revealed that the club couldn’t fit the mobile forward under their salary cap and have therefore decided not to pursue him any further.








          No. We’ve withdrawn from discussions with Chris McQueen. Genuinely nice bloke & quality player but not in our budget https://t.co/aEFbegfCzf

          The Rabbitohs also seem at long odds to re-sign McQueen, considering the salary cap problems they’re currently experiencing in order to have Sam Burgess’ contract fit under their cap.

          McQueen is currently contracted to the Bunnies for the 2016 season, but could potentially end up at the Titans over the summer.

            I'm more saying in the entertainment value of how everything is unfolding. No matter what it's been a heap of fun to watch and I hope to see a bit more before the season starts!

              Wouldn't be surprised if Aaron Gray is released aswell.

              I doubt they will release Gray, he's on Minimum wage. It's all this backened contract bull****, when will people learn that it only leads to headaches & disharmony!!
