    So late in a season is the issue. No club should have this option.

    This year is COVID-19, everything is different and all clubs have had some benefits and allowances.

    June 30 became Aug 3 for all sides. It allows for the time there was no footy

    The NRL tried to stop the storm doing it until they got backlash.

    Yes but not the same situation though. Nominal value was too much for the cap space that was left.

    Tickets to Parra game snapped up in a few hours. Hopefully we are in a position to get the JJ Giltinan shield then

    It tells me that the Roosters are not confident they have the forward pack to win the title.

    I agree. Also, this just proves that Trent Robinson can not coach that well.

    Losing Radley killed their middle. Even in games he played when interchanged they'd lose momentum.

    SBW is busted though. Can't see him fixing that

    Me either but they don't get much choice. He'll help them with training and culture standards more than on field.

    Not if they can get the injury replacements to the level they need for finals and 3peat.

    The replacements won't be the issue. Will be the old guys like Friend

    Ouch, what a hatchet job done on Griffin. Hard to argue with much of that. Although the game plan changed from 5 hitups and a kick, to run it on the last if inside the opposition 10.

    Interestingly done by Gould's mate Webster.

    No direct quotes. He contradicts Gould to suit his story. Take it with a bucket of salt. If the dressing room was so against him, why didn't we hear it at the time and if Gould hated him so much, why did the board sack Hook when Gould wanted to leave him in place until the end of the season? Story just doesn't gel.

    Look at the Author. Enough said

    The form of the guys let go by us. Probably tells more of the story

    Yep an opinion piece based on stories from a mate.

    Plenty of ex players can ask for a quote
