Surely we must be only days away from announcing Pauli is leaving, following Jenning's recruitment?
He's staying now.
So I take it someone else must be going...? Unless the Roosters are now contributing enough for Jennings to keep us under the 2016 cap?
I don't think our 2016 cap was ever a problem.
We had money for Hoppa around 500k, have offloaded Seffa as well. We had good money to offer Hiku as well with the Roosters tipping in some cash we don't have to let anybody go.
Keeping Pauli for another season is a nice little bonus.
Obviously we won't want to pick junior anywhere near first grade what with his dangerously low tackles per minute stat though.
we're not guaranteed of keeping everyone on board this year including pauli or Morgs, from what I understand BA has told rival clubs to come up with the full freight or it wont be happening.
i still think we'll lose 1 or 2 in the squad by June depending on injuries ofcourse.
Can't see the point in keeping Kelly with Cornish on board.
But cant see anyone wanting to take him either
One's a left footer, one's a right footer. And both have taken turns training with the first grade side while Foran works on his conditioning.
There's good-enough for the-top-17 and good-enough-to-be-paid-elite-money. A player can be the former without being the latter.
But you knew that.
Serious? ... I think we're blessed to have 2 good halves with fg experience in our books particularly if 1 or both our main men go down...
And his hammys...
No mate I was completely serious.
Kelly as fourth choice half for firsts is acceptable surely?
He may even be fifth really because I could see French or someone getting a run depending on how we were going at the time ahead of him.
Prob takarangi would play 6 even before kelly started.
I won't be surprised if Kelly gets a run ahead of Cornish, depending on who's out (Norman or Foran).
Fair points gentleman - except that Kelly is shit!
Without starting to sound like pou, Kelly is more than capable defender for a 7 who's only played 30 to 40 games of NRL ..
