Can't see manly doing to well next season, Newcastle is all odds and sods, hopefully that makes us a shoe in for 15th
 
Reckon they’re paying him 400k too much. Hard to put a price on been a dick head
The guys such a tool - i don't get that by the sounds of it it was either Henry or him that had to go so they sack the coach and in the back of Haynes small little mind he must have had some inkling about moving back to Sydney - and the Titans seemed to go better with Henry before Hayne got there, they were pretty awful this year. Interesting with Parramatta where he will play as thought Gutherson went well at fullback and moses/norman in the halves. Good luck to the eels, they can have the guy. :headphone:
 
Apparently:
FB Gutherson
WNG French
CENTRE Hayne
SECONDROW Takarangi
They always seem to move people don't they to accommodate him - Takarangi go's alright at centre for the eels unless he wants to move and let the aussie princesss play in the centres. Guys a poison chalice - good for us as the Eels may have the spoon next year aye.

Well when news broke that he got the release and was poised to sign for Eels...Parramatta premiership odds LENGTHENED rather than shortened lol

Sad thing is they are still above us. We are 14th on the line with titans below us and rounding out the bottom is Tigers. I personally cant see Tigers getting wooden spoon.

Sadly for the guy I think $500k isn’t far off his market value. His star has fallen pretty heavily.
Parker was only on $350k at the Broncos apparently.

Same - can't see the Tigers there - they will be much better next year as with newcastle.
 
Mitchell Pearce set to join the Knights on huge $4 million deal

Cronk denies ill-feeling with Pearce

THE Newcastle Knights are on the verge of winning the multi-million dollar battle for the signature of NSW State of Origin half-back Mitchell Pearce.

Pearce has all but agreed to a $4 million four-year deal with huge extra incentives if he can steer the Knights to a grand final victory.

After two weeks of intense negotiations, Pearce is poised to reject offers from the Cronulla Sharks and the Manly Sea Eagles to join the wooden-spooners.

Mitchell Pearce is set to join the Knights.
He would be the biggest signing at the Knights since the club lured champion forward Ben Kennedy from the Canberra Raiders back in 2000.

He would join his former Roosters team mates Shaun Kenny Dowall, Aiden Guerra and Connor Watson in the Knights jersey.

Knights chief executive Phil Gardner put the lucrative offer on the table yesterday.

Rooster no more ... Mitchell Pearce wilL likely play for the Knights in 2018. Picture: Phil Hillyard
It is worth $1 million more over four years than Cronulla could offer.

Manly’s offer was a heavily back-ended deal because of salary cap pressure.

Having released Blake Green to the New Zealand Warriors, coach Trent Barrett is now desperately looking for a halves partner for skipper Daly Cheery Evans before the start of next season.

Good on him if he goes to Newcastle.
He would suddenly be a lot more likable.

Didn't see that coming, I was certain he was headed to Manly after they released Green. I guess Brock Lamb is likely to end up at Manly now.

Or Ata hingano...?

Tbf from what I heard hayne wasn't the only player who was off Henry- one of the higher profile ones has since re-signed ( or is it resigned? Always confuses me that one- has signed a new contract with them).

Parker had brown paper bags for his entire career. Just like Lockyer, was apparently on similar coin. The NRL is a joke, especially considering they didn't let the Eels sign Falou for that price several years ago.

Yes $350k reportable income only. Broncos have never been put under the blowtorch by the NRL even when they had the issue with The Thoroughbreds, those wealthy Brisbane businessmen who look after certain Broncos Stars
 
the Johns brothers will be very happy with that decision

Matty was keen up to get him up to the Hunter Valley

getting out of sydney might be good for Pearce.
 
Pearce to the Knights has got me pretty keen to see how Newcastle go. They have started to build quite well under Brown.

$4.4 million over 4 years. A nice industry to be in. Pearce wants to leave due to Cronk's signing, you would think moving on at this time of year you would be in for a pay cut or at least a similar amount. It looks like he got a pay rise out of it. The Knights did have a lot of free cap space seeing as they are well under the minimum requirement.

The argument for Pearce staying at the Roosters was to learn off Cronk how to finish games off. It will be interesting to see how much involvement the Johns' boys have with the Knights. They did seem to be out of the club, if they have involvement you would think they would be help with the areas Pearce need improvement on.

The clubs that were after him. It leaves Manly without an established half to partner DCE, so things may move there. The Sharks already got Moylan so would be covered, with the amount of big names in their squad the Pearce speculation was interesting. The Storm would have been good, just slot into the Cronk role and would have Smith and Slater around to help in the key moments.
