Pretty sure it is 10+ years at that club.Don't forget that his 10+ years of being a Top 30 player entitles the start-up to a 200k discount on his contract and they likely won't be signing anyone else that would provide it. A 3 year $M contract becomes a 800k one. Juat sayin'.
The last option mate.Pretty sure it is 10+ years at that club.
So that discount comes into play for Manly but not elsewhere
Huh, there you go, today I learned something!The last option mate.
$0.2 million – Veteran and Developed Player Allowance for eligible players who were either developed by the Club prior to becoming NRL players and / or have been a Top 30 player for at least 8 years at the Club or have been a Top 30 player for at least 10 years across the game
Age an issue I think, you want a player to build a club around.If you were going to build a club around a person and wanted a queenslander it would be DCE all the way
1. Regardless of what is thought of in here he is a proven player (see Dally M this year)
2. Great with sponsors. I can not state this enough compared to any player that has been linked with them he would be the strongest off the park. For a new club starting up he is a proven known quantity
4. Local connection
I am not sure he would go but if I was them he is the first person I would target
I don't think any of our young guys are even close to being ready in '23 are they? Con for a year and see how he goes while giving the young guys time?Its called a retirement fund. If they trump up the dollars he will take it. Hopefully with lower grade footy back on we need to be grooming a new half back.
