And on the train goes.

This Roberts saga is really starting to get old. Just pick a f**king team so we can all get on with it.

If Souths sign Roberts would they release that other centre who was also implicated in the shit with Walker? Isnt he a centre too?

Gray? Oh no, no no no no no. He's shown contrition and stuff. He's a role model and humbled himself and all that sort of gear.
Wait, Roberts you say?
f**k off Gray.

James Roberts would be silly to turn down a $300k or so a season pay increase thinking it's either that or a premiership if he signs with Broncos.

At the end of the day no team or coach can guarantee a premiership. But that $300k in the bank is guaranteed. I also don't think his Origin hopes suffer too much whether he goes to Broncos, Souths or Dragons. If he plays fullback for Dragons that may even increase his chances. More likely to beat out Moylan and Tedesco at fullback then he is Dugan, Morris, Jennings, Fergo etc. For a centre spot. Especially when neither Moylan or Tedesco has experience to give them an edge.

Only way you knock back what the Dragons are offering is if there's some massive payments elsewhere making up the difference.

He may sign for $250k at Brisbane, but trust me, he'll be earning a lot more overall, we've got some great indigenous ambassador roles at Brisbane, we're still putting Jharal Yow Yeh to work.

Plus I'm guessing it's only $250k for the first year, despite what's being reported, he'll get an upgrade in year 2 & 3 once we stop paying Barba and shed a couple of off-contract players.

Wasn't one of his demands that he be offered a 2 year contract with a 3rd year player option?
