Every Club's Real Cap Worth

Interesting take. I've marked a few up or down, sometimes with explanatory notes but most of it looks reasonably good.
Whatya think? Should be good for a few arguments.


Monday Buzz: NRL salary cap deep dive — What every NRL club’s roster is really worth

March 6, 2022 - 5:58PM

The gap between the NRL’s premiership heavyweights and struggling clubs is widening.

Last year we blamed the new rules, more fatigue and a faster game for a record number of scoreline blowouts rather than the class and quality difference across the 16 clubs.

Valuing every player at every club – a task I undertook with colleague Brent Read – shows the salary cap is not working and we can’t blame the new rules.

An analysis of the 16 clubs shows that the Sydney Roosters and the Penrith Panthers are, at least on paper, worth up to $3 million worth than some of their rivals.

All clubs might be spending $9.6 million but the Roosters are actually worth $11.55 million and the Panthers $11.05 million by our calculations. At the same time the Cowboys are worth just $8.02 million and the Bulldogs $8.23 million.

So how did we value them? It’s mostly around form from last year and having sought the opinions of player agents and recruitment experts.

OVERPAID PLAYERS
There are a couple of interesting cases that illustrate why a club like the Cowboys will struggle to compete against their stronger rivals.
Val Holmes is in the salary cap at around $900,000 but we’ve valued him at $550,000. Jason Taumalolo is valued at $750,000 but is paid more than $1 million. Jordan McLean is in the cap at around $650,000 but we rate him a $375,000 front-rower.
There are similar examples among other rosters. Veteran Raiders skipper and centre Jarrod Croker is on around $800,000 in the cap. At this stage of his career he’s worth more like $400,000.
The Knights pay Dave Klemmer $900,000 but he’s probably now worth only half that.

MOST VALUABLE
We have rated champion Manly Sea Eagles fullback Tom Trbojevic and Penrith’s premiership winning half-back Nathan Cleary as $1.4 million players.
Next is Sydney Roosters fullback and Blues Origin skipper James Tedesco at $1.2 million.
Under our estimates the three best players in the competition provide outstanding value to their clubs because they are getting paid well below that amount.
Newly appointed Newcastle Knights skipper Kalyn Ponga is rated the fourth highest at $1.1 million which is close to what he is getting paid. We rate David Fifita, the game’s most destructive forward, at $1 million.

THE IMBALANCE
On face value it’s hard to see how the Roosters can squeeze in so much talent yet stay under the cap. They made the semi-finals last year despite losing the likes of Boyd Cordner, Jake Friend, Brett Morris, Lindsay Collins and Luke Keary.
It is a fact players will stay or sign with the Roosters for less than they can get elsewhere.
There is the attraction of playing under super coach Trent Robinson, winning premierships and playing representative football from a successful side.

This also applies to Melbourne Storm and Craig Bellamy who has such a great record of turning mediocre footballers into great players.
At the other end of the scale teams like the Wests Tigers have to pay way ‘overs’. They have Luke Brooks on $900,000 yet we suggest he’s worth more like $550,000. James Tamou is on close to $800,000 but is no longer in that big-money league.

THE BLOWOUTS
Last season saw the most number of blowouts in 86 years of rugby league. On one forgettable Super Saturday we had a combined score line of 148-6. Rather than build to achieve sustainable success, impatient clubs and coaches are panic buying looking for immediate results. To try to become a top four or top eight club overnight. It’s not working. This analysis of the rosters proves that.

These estimated values are so subjective and variable. Are some of these players valued more just because they are in a better team, or is the team better because they have a more valuable player in that position than other teams? it's chicken and egg scenario.

Wow the Telegraph's estimates of vaules? What next, they work out my income taxes using their valuations of my wage too? :rolleyes:

Thanks for posting it Vee for a read, but I doubt the veracity of the DT's valuations.

Totally get that it's Buzz (I rate Brent Read a fair step up on the drunken dribbler) but gotta start somewhere and I reckon most are fairly good. You can rate just your side or any side without addressing the rest or comment on certain players (some have deadset won the lottery and should be paying more than 8% to the manager that got it for them). Or just not comment at all.

Market place economics isn't as simple as that. What they are 'worth' is an incredibly subjective notion. Then add on top what a club has to pay to keep a player when there's competition for them, or entice a player to move and it makes the whole exercise pointless. Gave them something to do in the pub for an afternoon I suppose.

I’d perfer if they rated each teams top 17 as to where each player ranks in their position out of 16. Again it’s all preseason speculation to fill the papers or webpage before the real talking starts

The numbers are just figures plucked out of Buzz's arse, but he is correct that plenty of players are on overs for what they provide.

The problem is if you dropped for example Jerome Luai into the Cowboys squad and put JT at Penrith, it's likely their values would change significantly given the environment they would be in changes what they can achieve.

yep, I doubt Jahrome Hughes would be worth 850k if he had spent the last 3 seasons at the Cows or Tigers....

He is a great example. Looked a fringe player at best for quite a few years until getting placed in a good system and quality players around him. It will be interesting to see where he goes talent wise if he takes a big payday to leave the Storm.

Similar with Kikau, he does next to no work bringing the ball back.

Would he have the same value when not getting to bludge out wide and only touching the ball when it's outside the defensive 40 metre line for a side which can't control field position?

That question will get answered next year when he goes to the Dogs.

DT trying to cause unrest between players. I LOLLed when I saw the value of some of those established Storm players.

Storm
1 Ryan Papenhuyzen $800k Undervalued by $150k at least.
2 Dean Ieremia $220k
3 Reimis Smith $320k Undervalued.
4 Justin Olam $500k 450 thought he was worth more. Undervalued.
5 Xavier Coates $425k Must be partially getting paid by Brisbane. Bargain.
6 Cameron Munster $920k Close to the mark albeit playing injured at times, so slightly overvalued.
7 Jahrome Hughes $850k Worth much more.
8 Jesse Bromwich $550k Absolutely undervalued. lol!
9 Harry Grant $750k Overvalued.
10 Christian Welch $650k Undervalued lol!
11 Felise Kaufusi $650k Undervalued. lol!
12 Kenny Bromwich $500k Undervalued lol!
13 Brandon Smith $750k About on the money. Should be wondering off next season to get more at the Fins.

14 Chris Lewis $130k
15 Tui Kamikamica $320k
16 Nelson Asofa-Solomona $580k Now they are taking the piss, even if he is a benchie.
17 Nick Meaney $270k.

I call BS to detract the real value from some other teams.

I'd pay Hughes more than Munster! No way paps is worth that much yet, he hasnt had one full good season under his belt. Unless you're paying on potential!
Same with Grant. Olam worth more for sure. Nelson would be the highest "worth" value forward imo. Smith isnt worth that much unless he can play 90mins at 9 well which he hasnt shown much of yet.

'Worth' is such a subjective measurement lol.

12 Kenny Bromwich $500k Undervalued lol!
13 Brandon Smith $750k About on the money. Should be wondering off next season to get more at the Fins.

14 Chris Lewis $130k
15 Tui Kamikamica $320k
16 Nelson Asofa-Solomona $580k Now they are taking the piss, even if he is a benchie.
17 Nick Meaney $270k.

I call BS to detract the real value from some other teams.

The media has been pushing the aussie Harry Grant is better than kiwi Brandon Smith agenda for the past couple years. It's an absolute joke. Smith is considerably better. Grant is overrated.

Also lol @ them rating Ponga as the 4th most valuable player. He can't tackle and always goes for intercepts to avoid contact.

Whilst you can’t (or shouldn’t) really take much notice of Buzz and the idea of worth is so subjective, there is one aspect which is beneficial: a discussion about the inefficacy of the salary cap
