Maybe old mate George realised he could be sued for inducing Semi to break a contract.

Looks like Toddy has some time to work out an equitable way keeping elite players in the game. Perhaps Telstra could TPA NRL elite players rather than the NRL specifically putting their hands in their war chest ?

full statement from parraeels.com.au
Eels statement regarding Semi Radradra

Tue 21st June, 02:20PM A A











The Parramatta Eels and Semi Radradra’s management can confirm that Semi will be returning as expected to prepare for the club’s next NRL game against Cronulla.
Semi has also assured the club today that he will remain with the Eels as per his contract until at least the end of the 2017 season.
"Like other Eels players during the bye round, Semi was granted leave by the club to return home and visit family. This has led to some unnecessary speculation regarding his future," said Semi Radradra’s manager, George Christodoulou from Next Generation Sports.
"I have spoken to Semi directly and he would like to assure Eels fans and the wider rugby league community that he will be returning as scheduled in time to prepare for Eels’ next NRL game against Cronulla."
"He remains fully committed to his teammates and will be remaining with the Eels until at least the end of the 2017 season, as per his current contract."
The club will be making no further comment regarding this matter.

George forgot to mention in his joint statement about the contract to play in France that he put in front of Semi.

Go and earn your money George - Semi should have been signed as Fiji Airways Ambassador 12 months ago but George must of forgot he had to do the paperwork.

Brilliant!

Loved BAs comment re Semi last Friday night. "We're lucky to have him".
Respect. Our Club understands how important Semi is. They wont stuff this up. No way.
Semis manager should be dragged in and "advised" what potential there is so far as TPA support for someone like Semi. Someones not doing their job and they should be made accountable. Semi should be on a Motza.

We should be working our butts off to upgrade Semi and find some suitable TPA's to keep him in the game. Id be more then happy to throw in $50. I am sure there would be more fans who would do the same thing.
The club should come up with 150k upgrade for 2017 on the terms of a 2 yrs extension!
