    A commitment from the Parramatta Eels to upgrade Clint Gutherson’s 2019 contract was the sweetener that helped seal the skipper’s three-year extension overnight.

    NRL.com understands the Eels have decided to bump up Gutherson’s current deal, using the money they haven’t spent in this year’s salary cap to reward Gutherson for his strong start to the year.

    While the Eels didn’t want to budge on the three-year term they offered despite Gutherson’s hope of landing a fourth season, the club proposed a contract upgrade for 2019 in recent meetings with his manager.

    Interesting. Gus in his podcast said he spoke to Sam Ayoub personally and he told Gus they never, ever demanded 4 years.

    Yeah but Gus was just parroting what Sam said. They seem to be mates to the extent that Gus inferred that Ayoub was very trustworthy. <shudder> Not his go.:rolling_eyes:

    Anyway water under the bridge now

    You do realise $650k isn’t “the middle” of $500k and $700k don’t you?

    Just to clarify - he was hoping for 4 years but they never insisted it had to be. It was not the sticking point. Anyway, all over now. Moving on.
