The bunnies released James Roberts from the final year of his bumper contract on compassionate grounds. James Roberts signs a new compassionate 2 year contract with the Tigers.

Greg Inglis, Sam Burgess, James Roberts-they are all fine examples of the bunnies abundunt compassion.

Glad someone posted about this as it makes no sense and I couldn’t be bothered.

Who walks away from one contract to sign a much lower one? He obviously took a cash payout under the table.
I guess the alternative theory is that Souths had grounds to terminate The Jet's contract but instead came to a mutual decision for him to be released. That way, he was a chance of getting a contract elsewhere (and screwing up another club's cap, not for compassionate reasons).
