I just meant the 5 players that post referred too not the whole squad.Same can be said for every squad in the nrl. There are all spending around the cap so it's likely to be the same for Melbourne. They'd have players not in first grade earning, soaking up cash.
Players 27-30 only have to be on $72,500. That goes up $2500 pa as per the EBA.If they think thats all Carrigan is on they are having a laugh. Is Seggy only on development contract money as well?
If player agents want to tell their players don't leave Brisbane for Sydney unless we can get $100k more isn't that a good thing for the Broncos?The cost of living may increase, but it doesnt mean you need to earn 20% more to cover the difference.
What absolute **** wrote this shit.
If the cost of living is $20k more in sydney, it doesnt mean you'd need to pay a $500k player an extra $100k to justify moving you absolute fucking twonk.
Further to this. Hunt was probably going to get $700k here, It's not his or our fault the saints shit the bed and offered enormous overs.
In all honesty the rorters simply use their TPA and lux lifestyle as a value adder. Discount cars for family, corporate engagements, discounted or cheaper rental properties to live in, free food and drink wherever they go to club affiliated venues (which is half the pubs and restaurants in sydney). That sort of stuff is worth 100k+ per player a year to these guys.Can we have a similar article on the rorters? It'd be interesting to see these journos attempt to justify them being under the cap, especially when you add in this mysterious 20%.
