Listening to the YKTR podcast with Brandon and I’d be surprised if he didn’t go to the Roosters. The way they operate sounds uber next level compared to anything that Cam George or Mohawk could ever dream of!!
Isaac John has had an interesting career post footy. Attempting to make the modern media brand / podcast... unfortunately it's not very good and they all come across really try hard. You couldn't really of predicted this career arch from his Warriors days.Sounds like going to the roosters is like being indoctrinated into a cult, albeit a winning one. Isaac's not the sharpest tool in the shed, mind you neither is cheese, they're both pretty easily impressed by someone who's read a book. Good luck to him but I'd trust mohawk over anyone associated with the roosters, just my opinion.

Just my opinion of course - but I think they're really not good at all.I'm not quite sure what you mean, however Issac John has great podcasts and definitely not try hards..
He’s been lucky to have Jordan Simi and Justin Horo come onboard. Honestly, those two have made that company. I don’t really see what Isaac John offers, he just comes across that he thinks he’s smarter than he actually is. I have no doubt hes probably decent with the behind the scenes stuff.I'm not quite sure what you mean, however Issac John has great podcasts and definitely not try hards..
Clubs can talk about loyalty when it’s in their favour but also in this case they had Grant as a contingency so does that loyalty go both ways?A player saying he wants to win a premiership or is expecting success at his new club big deal. Assuming he is going to the Roosters as it is looking likely he has a season remaining at the Storm and would be wanting to win there as well. Both clubs success is expected.
Rothfield also doesn't know what he has discussed with the Storm.
Have to love the whole they brought over from NZ trained him sob story. He was learning under Cameron Smith waiting for him to retire so he could play 9. They seem to be favouring Grant and use Brandon Smith's versatility to try and keep them both happy. All the hype this year was around Grant until near the end of the season when Smith was injured and some commentators stated Smith was arguably their best player or how much better they were with him in the side.
Rothfield needs to fill his article quota and likes to complain. Players signing a year out seems like something he will have a bee in his bonnet about and will probably use during NRL360 whenever one of those players has a bad game. He is pretty repetitive like a drunk parrot.
The money saved from Ikavalu leaving probably covered the Manu upgrade. Morris x2 money on top of Jake friends money will cover Cheese. They will just back fill with young guys or journeyman looking for a top tier club....like how Keighran went there.Roosters Salary Umbrella strikes again.
