Last Sunday night, Radio Sport had quite a long interview with Rabs. During it he dispelled the myth he was a Bunnies fan and that he only got the nickname because of his surname from when he used to do radio commentary in a small NSW country competition. He confirmed what many Australian fans have thought for a while.... he’s an Eels fan.
They were desperate to get Farah's huge salary off their books. I know the Johnson saga hasn't been handled the best but at least we avoided something like this or Johnson having a sulk up on the scoreboard on his last day.
Have to laugh how the club are arguing how the CEO has been respectful etc towards the NRL over the last 3 years. So if you bend the rules on one incident it's all good if you behave after that.
Yeah this Farah thing is very interesting. I know there was a rule where clubs could only have one or maybe it was two club ambassadors. But I'm not sure if there was any limit on how much they could be paid.
It's a pretty classic way to cheat the cap. How would the NRL ever find out if somebody close to a club gave a player a load of money (or a house/boat/business) a few years after their retirement?
Obviously the Wests Tigers wrote something down which was found.
