    NRL superstar Valentine Holmes has reportedly quite the NRL immediately to chase a dream of playing in the NFL.

    The Daily Telegraph was the first to report the news Holmes has knocked back multimillion-dollar deals from the Sharks and Cowboys to try to follow in Jarryd Hayne’s footsteps in the United States.

    Holmes was earlier this year offered the richest ever deal in Cronulla history.

    Holmes returned to Sydney from his off-season holiday to Cuba and the United States this week and was expected to announce his decision to either re-sign with the Sharks or make a dramatic move to North Queensland.

    Nobody expected his move to be as dramatic as quitting the NRL.

    The report claims Holmes wants to break his contract with the Sharks to chase a career in the NFL.

    Holmes remains contracted at the Sharks through to the end of the 2019 season and was one of the hottest players on the NRL open-market for the 2020 season.

    Holmes famously trialled with NFL teams when his last NRL contract was negotiated with the Sharks — travelling to the United States with Cowboys weapon Jason Taumalolo in 2016.

    Holmes and Taumalolo were invited back to the United States for further trials with NFL teams after they staged open workouts in front of NFL scouts represen

    Well its confirmed all club and Nrl stats are false.

    How hard would it be to measure and weigh the guys and post?

    1min x 30 guys and MAYBE 2 hours worth of data logging.
    Pathetic tbh.

    I don't understand what the former 2nd tier salary cap has to do with the top 30 being based solely on salary, not a selected group each year.

    What it means is you can't just upgrade a new merkin into the squad, pushing the 30th highest paid player into the second tier.
