The official figure on the books will no doubt be a bargain - another star who was willing to take 'unders' to play for Uncle Wayne.
But no doubt the Thoroughbreds have had to fork out an extra few hundred k a year off the books.
Again, the fact that the Broncos have made one GF in the last 11 years has to be the biggest underachievement in modern Australian sport.
Sounds like the poor Broncos will be paying overs then.There are other ongoing costs yet to be determined with Roberts' contract - ie paying off licenced establishments to NOT release CCTV footage of *alleged* atrocities committed while out on the cans plus the massive rugs and brooms required to sweep everything else under.... 4 years of sweeping coming up, that pile is going to be huge!
I notice Herman has been blacklisted now he's signed elsewhere. Even though he's been much better than Korbin Sims this year.
Wayne is clearly disgusted that young Herman didn't take unders to re-sign for 100k a year for the privilege of being coached by Uncle Bennett.
Surely the next stop now is driving a dumptruck full of money to Maloney's place?
Maloney at halfback steering all the young talent the knights have picked up would make for a bloody good side providing Brown can develop them all well
they're much better off investing in those prospects instead of another who is leaving at the end of the year. It's the same reason why Ponga can't get a look in at the Cowboys despite being one of the most talented players at their club. Why invest in a future that doesn't belong to you?
The NRL shouldn't be registering "unders" contracts. It just encourages foul play from clubs who can get away with it. What was he rumoured to be getting?
They snagged Benji last year for apparently minimum wage, after he laughed off a $400k Dragons deal live on TV months earlier.
With the amount of cap fraud the NRL has uncovered over the past 2 decades you think they would be smarter than that.
