Top post mate. Still good for Pimms at Bondi Diggers this arvo?
And one qlderp....
Interesting perspective by Paul Gallen on this - https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/latrel...ell-could-pay-dearly-for-chasing-money_101119
I said the same thing earlier this week, his best shot at gaining his nsw spot back is probably with the roosters, that’s 100k right there. The contract amount difference could easily be made up or more over his career with rep payments and TPA deals.
I know there's a lot of conjecture over his price tag but he's a genuine game winner. Kicks goals, covers several positions, attracts the defence and has the physical traits to be an absolute superstar. He's 22 and he's a little out of sorts but many of his calibre have done the same. Look at Ponga or Milford, they've had hyped seasons followed by mediocre ones.
Wherever he goes, I hope he reaches the heights we know he can. Otherwise, the game will find a replacement and he'll be ancient history.
We were told that Souths and the NRL were in some sort of back room deal to medically retire Burgess so they could get Mitchell
well, it’s appears that the truth is that Mataulino was medically retired......... very quickly, so they can make a play for Mitchell
Meanwhile the NRL are drawing out the Burgess decision stuffing Souths chances to get into the market
nothing’s changed with the nrl darlings, the tigers, getting a leg up again
Tigers and NRL darlings do not go in the same sentence. Literally ever
You just did...
LOL f*ken wot?
The Tigers put Matulinos paperwork in in early August. It took nearly 3 months before they got an answer.
If the NRL are consistent you’ll find out in early January. Then maybe you’ll get your second rort to go with GI.
You’re the one who’s been pulling your dick on here for weeks saying Latrell to Souffs is happening. Too bad so sad
Is it just me or does every Souffs fan reckon they know someone whos got a mate whos cousin is in the know at the club and they've got the word on all the contract goss
The best I ever heard was at the souffs/tigers game at ANZ this year just before they signed James Roberts . A souffs fan behind me was telling his mates that he knew someone on the board and that photo of Roberts being carried out of a party passed out was a setup by he and Bennett to get him out of Brisbane. He was actually off the drink, the photo was staged and then leaked to the press by them.
Tigers taking their time.
Can’t compare Inglis with Mitchell . Inglis was a good fullback before he went to Souths , he was killing it at storm and they only moved him from that position to accomodate Slater . When he went to 5/8 at storm he had Cronk and smith alongside him , hence why he killed it , look at all the5/8 that have played along those two since they looked like world beaters .
Hence why moving him to FB that year worked for Souths , also don’t forget that had a forward pack that was trampling everyone with Reynolds pin point kicks
. . . Greg Inglis " hold my beer"
Sam Burgess " mine too"
All of Russell's illegitimate children?
They failed to mention Mbye in the “payed overs” category. Another astute signing that no club in their right mind would pay more than minimum wage. And they made him captain lmfao.
So poor little Vic Mackey throws out some wild conspiracy theory and when held accountable for it he defaults to child mode by calling people dicks
Can anyone confirm he’s 12 years old?
Sums up just about every post in the rumours thread on the Souths board.
They have been under the impression that they are getting Latrell since December 2017.
If you want some good reading look at a thread in their forum called "who should we swap for Angus" or something like that at the end of 2017 where they all spit the dummy because Crighton signed with us for 2019 season and they were convinced that we were desperate to have him in 2018 and would swap Latrell (among others) for him.
As I told them would be the case, nothing happened and Angus stayed for 2018 and they got nothing for him. Angus then won a comp in 2019, it was f**king hilarious.
Hopefully they miss out on him again, it will be equally hilarious.
