    I was told he was on a 'healthy' amount but I don't know the exact specifics.
    One of the ones extended for what they could become in the future.

    I do find it strange to be possibly losing Naden. Just thought he'd be one of the keeps but oh well.

    Reading between the lines it seems to be about keeping Staines. It has come out of nowhere, though.

    Id rather Naden. Staines looks to be a real concern injury wise.

    Ivan did say, before this came out, that Charlie was offered a reasonable extension, so it is unlikely because of that. That said, if it is the case, then I hope Charlie hasn't been offered overs.

    Covers more positions too but from what I heard he is unsure he wants to stay

    They’re a bit of a concern, but it’s too early to know if it’ll be an ongoing problem.

    It’s probably not just about Staines, though. It might help us keep Burton as well.


    What’s clear is we’re going to have to lose some talent. Out of Staines, Burton, Naden & Laurie at least one will go. Maybe two.

    Yeah but Staines can play a spine position, that’s a huge difference. If they see him as the future FB it isn’t a surprise they’d work hard to keep him.

    Yeah but if other clubs are chasing him hard we may have had to up the offer. It all depends on how they see his future value & place in the team. We’ve heard before that he’s been earmarked as the future FB.

    Naden was fullback in NYC. Was actually playing backrow when called up to the NRL. Also would be cheaper too but he is as good as gone to Storm

    Maybe, however, if he is playing like that then he should leave.

    Too many guys off contract. It is good if the player is a dud but when everyone is buying is what inflats it

    Not that I believe everything The Mole says, he did add last week it was from a troublemaker.

    The media would get 1000's of these hot takes each year. Those regulars that always report these would be known

    Doubt Naden will be cheap for long.

    Staines has a legitimate shot of unseating Edwards at FB in the future, Naden doesn’t.

    You would think most players would want to stay the way things are travelling. I do recall rumours a while ago that there were a few issues with him & the playing group. They do look a happy bunch at the moment though.

    This often happens when teams become successful, it’s only been the Roosters & Storm that have really been able to hold squads together. Even then they’ve strategically let go some pretty good players.

    Most would but being down the pecking order doesn't help
