The dogs have approached him and are wanting to lure him and potential Jake to their club.
Wont ever happen. Manly will never let them go in their prime. Just about everyone else would be let go before them
Agree highly unlikely that they would ever leave however if they do it would be to a club that are likely to win a comp. Dogs are no chance 5 years +
I have heard on the grape vine its not only the dogs but there are 14 other clubs interested in him
Yeah right, as if they'd "do a Des".....the Dogs can 'want' all they want, it won't happen
Also there has been a rumour that in addition to 15 Nrl teams showing interest .... I am confident that 16 super rugby teams, the Wallabies and the Matildas are also showing interest ....
Every player that plays SOO is on the radar of every club, why would the Turbo's be any different. Any team that says they wouldn't sign them is full of crap. There would be 30+ players at other teams Des would love to sign but that is unrealistic with the salary cap. Every team would love to have the Queensland side over the last decade as their club team. I don't think they would leave if the club is realistic with contract offers, they are 1 club players and seem to love the club and local area too much to run off for a few dollars.
I'd be surprised if not all clubs are interested in him/them, however they are not being paid peanuts by Manly, far from it, their whole family is Manly, and I very much doubt it he would leave us for anything under an extra $300,000 per season, especially seeing he'll be still playing with his brothers, living and training on the Northern Beaches, as opposed to Belmore, and let's not forget the taxman will take half of that money also, they have as much chance of taking him away from us, as we have of now taking Ponga away from Newcastle.
Modern Journalist .... just rang @globaleagle in Canada and asked him if Toronto Wolfpack would like Turbo playing for them ... he said yes .. Headline ..... Source close to Toronto confirms the club's interest in Turbo ...
You’d have to move the Mona Vale Raiders first.
I agree, any club that says they’re not interested in the Tur-bros is either full of cap or full of crap
This is unequivocally true! edit: I hope the AFP don't now raid my home!
They won’t go anywhere ,Tom Jake & Ben They are the kind of guys that will stay at Manly for less It will only be if Manly don’t want them
"tell them they're dreaming"
Last time around it was the Dragons... Now it's apparently the Dogs...
So the Dogs have approached Turbo to join them with the hope of landing Jake as well.....Des can tell them exactly what its like over there. That alone should be enough to stay at Manly before you get into anything else. Just one thing though.....whatever happened to clubs not being able to approach players before a certain date (which currently escapes me)?
They still can't. All media speculation. Selling papers....
November this year. And Manly have first rights.
I thought I heard recently u can 'talk' to players at anytime. But u can't nut out numbers and formally negotiate prior to November the year before the contract expires. Wish I knew where I read it but apparently that's a big misconception that the media have propagated. For example sometimes clubs release players wayyyy early so obviously ure allowed to ask a question.
Under the NRL's current anti-tampering policy, players can negotiate with rival clubs from November 1 the year before their contract ends.
