Your a funny guy Handyman dont worry mate I’m one of them as well
Mate ive just about lost the plot!!
Players should get more money. They deserve it. That's a bloody hard game to play, but I guess it's easy playing from an office or boardroom or grandstand.
Semi to Souths? Rabbitohs players relish prospect of linking up with the Fijian flyer: https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...r/news-story/b2088f0e8a96879e822d85f1802407a5
Would certainly be a great signing but I just can't see it happening.
This from the Daily Telegraph sounds promising!!
Semi Radradra set to sacrifice rugby’s millions, snub Eels in NRL return
Former Australian winger Semi Radradra is so homesick he is prepared to take a $2m pay cut to return to the NRL.
The Daily Telegraph has been told French rugby union star Radradra is telling friends he wants to join South Sydney.
The giant Fijian winger, who previously played for Parramatta, is seeking a return to Australia because of homesickness, France’s cold weather, and family reasons.
Radradra left Australia for French club Toulon in 2017 before switching to rivals, Bordeaux, last year.
He was worth around $1m a year when he left the NRL but sources claim Radradra would now accept offers of around $500,000-a-season.
At age 27, Radradra would chase a four-year deal worth a combined total of around $2m – half the money he was earning two years ago. He just wants to come home.
A third party is said to be acting between Radradra and NRL clubs.
Souths, Canterbury and Parramatta have been linked to Radradra with the Rabbitohs said to be his preferred choice.
One source close to Radradra said several clubs were “circling.”
Parramatta wouldn’t comment about any potential interest in Radradra when contacted on Thursday.
Radradra was spotted socialising with his former Parramatta teammates recently but was noncommittal about a rugby league return.
Souths officials are tiring of answering questions about possible recruits given the club has been linked with Radradra, Josh Addo-Carr, Jai Arrow, David Fifita and Tyson Frizell.
The Rabbitohs have money to spend though through the retirements of Sam Burgess and John Sutton and George Burgess’ return to England.
NRL officials may reveal Souths’ salary cap dispensation amount from Sam Burgess’ enforced retirement next week. The Burgess money could be directed at Radradra or Arrow.
“Apparently Souths are looking at every player (according to speculation) but first we’ve got to sort out what the go is with Sam (Burgess),” Souths hooker Damien Cook told Sporting News.
“But Semi Radradra is a quality player and he did a great job when he was in the NRL. He’d be a great asset to most clubs.
“Who knows (what will happen)? We will see how it plays out.”
Semi Radradra scored 82 tries in five seasons at Parramatta. Picture: Brett Costello
Radradra played 94 matches for Parramatta between 2013 and 2017, scoring 82 tries. He left Australia ranked among the NRL’s finest wingers.
In 2015 he scored 24 tries in 18 games for the Eels. Radradra has played 10 rugby union Tests for Fiji, scoring five tries.
Souths, NSW and Kangaroos forward Cameron Murray added: “I haven’t been following Semi’s (rugby) career too closely but obviously what he did in the NRL was incredible.
“He is one of those freak athletes who gets the job done on the wing. He’d be a great asset to any NRL side and the NRL as a whole.
“It would be great to have him back in the NRL playing as well as he was.”
Radradra made his international rugby union debut for Fiji last year and represented the Pacific nation at this year’s World Cup in Japan where he was a standout performer.
I think soon we will have somewhere between 3 and 4 million to spend. Nothing would surprise me when it comes to signings. Roosters flat out refuse to let Latrell go to Souths next year. He may be forced to have a year somewhere else or play reserves. All bridges at chookville have been burned Now. Neither party want the other.
You know we deny everything about recruitment, we put out so much disinformation, its our way, why is mitchel waiting? Cowboys look to be out of the picture, tigers the only show in town, so why wait?
Wouldnt surprise me in the slightest if we gave AJ the door to the tigers and signed mitchell.
Could you imagine,
Fafita 850+ 150 3rds
Arrow 750+ 100 3rds
Taukohao 600+ 100 3rds
Mitchel 850 + 150 3rds
semi/traler 400 + 100 3rds
3.45mill well spent
Now we are talking contenders
there’s no way that team would be under the cap. We ain’t got no sombrero.
You forgot Trump......now there is some real bullshit!
There's no point compiling a big wishlist when there's only a maximum of two spots open in the top 30 for 2020.

Currently only one spot. Two if Sam is cleared.
Roosters won't release Mitchell to Souths. He will have to wait a year at another club or play reserves at Easts. They now hate each other and it can't be repaired. Easts know he was talking to Souths and that's against the law in their books. Haha. I love it!!!
Still don't see it happening,
One of the NZ rugby franchises or the Japanese will pick him up.
He's talking NRL in order to lift his asking price imo.
No, actually he's prepared to lose $2 million dollars.
Approx $500k over 4 seasons. That's where the $2m figure comes from.
The whole 'I'm prepared to return to Australia for less' is to spark interest and bids. He'll be earning closer to $1m than $500k. There's already three NRL clubs said to be interested and I'd be shocked if any Super Rugby franchises aren't interested.
If Semi signs anywhere for $500k a season then he either has a terrible manager or there is something wrong that is keeping teams across two codes away.
Understandable. But normally it takes up to two years to get the game back. Just look at the others like Hayne, Lotte etc. If anything, the risk lies with Souths. But I'm pretty sure we all get through it.
If Latrell is going to the Tigers for all that money, can anyone tell me why he hasn't already?
So apparently Fifita is staying at the Broncos, Arrow is a done deal and Mitchell is not going to the tigers but we are still not linked to him.
The Radradra links are interesting. He is actually a game breaker on the wing so I would welcome him with open arms.
