He was on less than that here. I heard he wanted $150k. We said it was too much.
Yet we were happy to give $450K a year to an untested Suli.
J Taylor should be hung, drawn, and quartered for letting JAC go. Monumental cockup.
Wendell Sailor said He went to the storm for $20k a year more. Well that and the fact they would play him on first grade
That'd be about right. He wasn't after big coin. Asking for 150k isn't being too over the top for anyone these days. He just wanted to play in the NRL.
You rarely get those guys. They will stay loyal and not demand huge coin and all you have to do is meet them halfway and give them some game time.
It's not like he was Milone and an absolute dogs breakfast of a player. What could have been.
I don't think anyone blames JAC for leaving, hence why we're all happy to see him do well.
$20kpa is a big difference when you're talking $130-$150kpa, as opposed to guy's on $300kpa
Whilst I normally don't tend to take sides in finals and GF's featuring "other" teams, I can't help but think forward to the following likely scenario.
Roosters take on The Storm in the GF....
Wouldn't it be poetic justice if JAC were to have a blinder and score the winning try why JT looks on from the Roosters coaching box as Trent Robinson sarcastically says "well done for letting him go JT - You Idiot"
And JT thinking - "shit, if I'd played him in first grade we probably would have made the 8 and I'd still be a first grade coach, instead of Trent's gofer."
But one has to wonder...at that price why one of the other 14 teams didnt get in under Melbourne with an offer more in step with the potential he displayed. Keery was as good as trying his dragons jersey on when the chooks pounced...seems as if melbourne were the only one's interested?
Storm got in first. Take a gutsy person to turn down getting try scoring opportunities from Smith, Slater, Munster and Cronk.
so if moylan signs, how many fullbacks do you then have tied up on serious coin?
if he signs.
That is a huge number of fullbacks on serious money.
Massive beat up..Moylan is not coming. We are not in the frame and never we're, it was just the case of the press putting one and one together and coming up with 5 and getting a lot of people excited
or maybe the coach opening his mouth
The media and the fan base are linking to us Moylan based on the fact that Cleary coached him and a throw away line any coach would say if asked about Moylan.
If Penrith were going to pick up half the contract and he fell into our laps of course Cleary would take him, but pigs might fly also.
I say he stays at the Penny's is the best bet with may be a few quid on Manly as the roughie
And for what it is worth apparently they are talking to a Parra backrower and a Raiders prop, but I don't say this with any confidence as my last bit of info said Nagamia and Grant were off the bus and that did not happen
I can c us signing 1 more prop & an outside back with pace.
Don't we have only one more spot left? I have a feeling Cleary is waiting for a marquee player to come onto the market although if that doesn't happen he'll probably get another forward.
Either way pre season training for us starts in another 3 weeks or so, so I'd imagine our 30 man squad will be finalised fairly soon
