Surely we keep Cody. I’m kind of thinking that was the plan all along.
Doesn’t he love playing with Latrell ?
Bennet has been pissing in codys and god knows who elses pocket,he knew what was going to happen, he lined up all contenders to the new franchise and dont be surprised if he decimates us further, he has never left a club in good condition as he found it,dont be surprised at whats going to happen next, money talks, cody now thinks he is a superstar and deserves

Bennet for all his acolades cant get a team of nobodies and make them great, not like belamy can, he has always stepped into teams with the window open,except newcastle and we all know how that went down.
No im expecting shit to hit the fan, and Ello aint the one to stop whats happening, ive said it all year.

Not a bad signing would be on minimum wage he is solid enough can add some good impact off the bench. Won’t make our best 17 but will do a job when needed.

Rabbitohs sign Michael Chee Kam for Season 2022: https://www.rabbitohs.com.au/news/2021/10/14/rabbitohs-sign-michael-chee-kam-for-season-2022/

While it's not a recruitment I'd crow about, I do believe this is a good signing. Potentially a great moneyball signing. He would have come pretty cheap and has shows signs of greatness at the Tigers. In a good system like ours he could flourish. I see Chee Kam as a Hame Sele or Mark Nicholls type signing where he comes to us not really rated but just grows and grows and grows. That's what I'm hoping anyway.

Welcome to the club Michael!

We need to get moving re a contract for Cody. We will have to offer him more than just 2023. I would offer him a deal for 2024 as well. We are gonna have to pay close to a million for him too I think probs around 900-950k.

If we just offer him 2023 only I think he will go with Wayne. Wayne will try get him still I reckon.

They are saying there is a clause in Wayne's contract that forbids him poaching players

From Zero Tackle,

“Link it with the Crusaders” - Former Kiwi calls for international expansion

The NRL have only just confirmed the competition will move to 17 teams in 2023, but already thoughts are beginning to turn to wards an 18-team competition.

The obvious advantage of adding yet another team in the years after The Dolphins enter the competition will be adding an extra game per weekend, increasing from eight to nine.

This would undoubtedly add value to the game's lucrative TV deal with extra content every weekend.

While Sydney Roosters' boss Nick Politis earlier this week called for another team to be based in either Brisbane, or elsewhere in Queensland, the common consensus among fans is that the NRL should be looking to expand to become a more national sport next time they opt to add a team.

Perth seems to be a front-runner after hosting State of Origin, and given the timezone advantages they would bring to the sport, however, a second team in New Zealand has also been touted.

Former New Zealand international player Hugh McGahan has come in with a radical plan to make it work too.

The common thought is that rugby league is only seriously popular on the north island in New Zealand, with Wellington the city most expect the NRL would target.

However, McGahan believes Christchuch, and linking with Super Rugby franchise the Crusaders would be the way to go, telling SEN New Zealand that a fan base and infrastructure you can draw off would be extremely important.

“A we've seen with the Dolphins, you have to have the right coach to attract people who want to come to New Zealand,” McGahan said.

“The Warriors have been around for 25 years and they're still struggling to attract big name players to New Zealand.

“I'm going left field here, I would look at a team in Christchurch and I would link it with the Crusaders. You have an infrastructure right away, you have a base and culture you can draw off and ride in off the experience of what the Crusaders are doing.

“They've proved over many years, that they're good at their job and everyone else has been chasing their tail for a long time. That's where I'd look to base a team.

“Canterbury is a sports mad province, and you would have a better base there, compared to Wellington.”

The Christchurch-based Super Rugby franchise are the most successful in the competition's history, and while rugby league has seldom visited the city, the radical proposal would tie in with the NRL's line of wanting measures in place to make clubs successful both on and off the field.

Well this special thing that I ordered around 5-6 weeks ago came yesterday. As some of you know I won a tipping comp I was in this year I won $300 and a few days after I was on the Rabbitohs twitter page and saw this special piece of memorabilia that was limited to just 100 that were made so when I saw it I quickly snapped it up and couldn’t think of a better way to spend the money. So I got limited edition 69 out of 100 so only 31 were left after I bought one.

As most of you know I am a massive Adam Reynolds fan always have been. Local Souths junior and premiership winning halfback who has given so so much to Souths over the years and left us with memories in big moments that I will cherish forever. Now to own this special piece of memorabilia of him indeed being Souths highest point scorer of all time is so awesome and special.

Whilst Adam is moving on next year he will always be a proud Rabbitoh.

Photo isn’t uploading though oh well.
