The rumour mill is doing my head in, I think I need to quit it but....
I found these tid-bits, don't know what to make of any of it:

Number 1:
From the TeleCrap -
South Sydney’s Corey Allan too good to spend another year stuck behind Latrell Mitchell
Paul Crawley, News Corp Australia Sports Newsroom

Another South Sydney star is set to follow James Roberts out the exit door at Redfern as the Rabbitohs confirm two signings for the 2021 season
Corey Allan has gone from an NRL fringe player to getting his State of Origin call up in less than two months.

Now South Sydney’s rising star is being spruiked to rival clubs on the lookout for a fullback for next season.

While Allan still has a year to run on his current contract, it is understood the Rabbitohs would be reluctant to stand in his way if he can secure a long-term upgrade elsewhere.

It comes as the Rabbitohs on Thursday announced the signings of St George Illawarra forward Jacob Host until the end of 2023 and Taane Milne on a two-year deal.

Number 2:
JAC to the Bulldogs by James Hooper

Number 3:
Some Souths dude on a member's forum:
https://weststigersforum.com/assets...e2c5bbd-a47b-4875-9c9b-52942442160c-image.png

Big changes ahead or a bunch of rubbish???
No3 on this list has discrepancys, uk prop, knight told to leave, dillon staying,big mistake, hawkins and dargan leaving? Amone has apparently tweeted he is leaving he was only offered a trial contract.
Too many conflicting rumours, the only 1 i believe is that roberts moving on means jac is being sought and we need a winger

Could it be that the report Souths could be releasing Jimmy the Jet is nothing but wishful thinking from the media so they can write more bs stories that would make every Souths supporters blood boil?

Interesting that Graham is now leading this.

Teams wanting roberts will play hardball in an effort to get us to pay at least half, if he is on 5 to 550k as written, i think 150 to 200 is enough, the money saved tops up latrell.
I still feel we need 2 forwards minimum, a prop and a 2nd rower. Everyone keeps planting Arrow at prop,id say he is lightweight and is more suited to 2nd row.

Yeah agreed. Look at that best props: Papalii, JWH, Paulo, Paulo, AFB, JFH... all big blokes that are good play 1 front rowers because they create good momentum and make great pcm. We don't have of that apart from maybe Tatola & Koala. Burgess every now and then does it but not as good as those guys listed above..
In all honesty if we played with more bit more energy we would win the gf easily.

JFH is the same size as Arrow.

Size is useless without athleticism today. Souths didn't get beaten because Penrith has a bigger pack last week, they got beaten because Penrith has a more athletic pack.

The best middle forward that Souths have weighs 90kg.

Souths already have size. Arrow will add athleticism. If he's big enough to start at prop in SOO, he's big enough to start at prop for Souths.

Lets wait and see were he plays and how he plays in SOO

Predictable offseason clickbait.

I have no doubt that other clubs are interested in Allan. Doesn't mean Souths will allow him to leave with a year to run nor does it mean he wants to leave.

Telecrap:

Corey Allan to follow Jimmy the Jet out the exit door at Redfern
Im led to believe Allen is on around 300k
St george may like him but wether we would let him go is another matter,id like that niko hines from the storm,he would make a good utility replacement.
This could also be Allens mger cooking for more money, im also thinking a swop deal jimmy for the fox

We GOT TO GET the Foxx. He's a LaPa boy, he wants to come back there, he wants to play with Cody and Latrell. If he is happy to stay a winger, he should be ours. Our backline will be killer deadly. Unbeatable. Surely we can come up with a deal for Melbourne. Doubt they will take the Jet but they might be interested in Paulo

All those forward mentioned..........NONE of their teams in the GF. We missed the GF because two of our forwards were injured early in the Prelim i.e. Sirro and Tatola.

Our current pack is great and will be strengthened with Arrow and Host could be interesting , not to mention on going development of Koala.

What we need is first re signing of Koala and LM versus looking at other forwards.
JAC IN Roberts out would be a bonus........
Allan may go , unless he wants to stay and re invent himself as a centre/five eight option
Suaalii extension would be a future bonus, however a leave decision should not impact our 2021/2022 success.

Our future success ......requires HALVEs /Hooker development and investment. Are we sure we have them in the club now? if not that is where our investment is needed.

Roosters ask Rabbitohs to release Joseph Suaalii.

The 17-year-old schoolboy superstar has rejected a $2 million contract extension at the Rabbitohs and wants to sign a long-term deal at the Roosters.

The Roosters will have to pay a development fee to the Rabbitohs, 25 per cent of the first year of his NRL contract. It is expected to be more than $50,000.

Is he asking for yearly get-out clauses with the Roosters?

If not, what an azzzhole this guy is.

Nah, he can sit out for a whole year.

Or trade him to Melbourne for the Foxx
