Interesting. Do they remain on their development contract or do the become entitled to minimum NRL wage?

Basically what the article says is that Seggy is signed for a fraction of the minimum wage due to his development contract status. If it is the case that he remains on that low amount but is also available whenever you want after June 30, that’s is quiet the finesse.

Yeah they stay on their development contracts... I think the change happened to avoid situations like last year where we wanted to play Staggs but couldn't

I thought Herbie had already been upgraded to the 30 or is that as of next year??

Surprised Kennedy is on development as well... thought he may have been a top 30 in Souths squad.

Sounds a bit rough for seggy.
We all know he is not a ‘development’ player.
He should be on minimum wage at least.
He signed a 6 month contract on minimum wage. It's not a developmental contract, just a deal to see him out till the end of the season. Pretty good for a guy who was working as a removalist or a dish pig or whatever the hell he was doing.

Ok sounds a bit better.
Wouldn’t mind if he was kept on next season pending how all our younger brigade are going.

I would love to work as a barista if wage wasn't a problem.

Last season you couldn't use your development players unless you had an injury crisis in that position and you had to prove you had no one else to play centre.

Staggs could only come off the bench because of it.

This year they changed the rules so your development players can be used freely after the 30th.

So they get the development player contract, which is 60k you would only have to pay them NRL base if you moved them in to your 30 which you can't do now.

At the start of the year the development players were: Cory Paix, Ethan Bullemor, Herbie Farnworth, Ilikena Vudogo, Jake Turpin, Tanah Boyd.

They have moved up to the 30 or been released leaving the other six after 30/6.

Hooper isn't right anyway Segeyaro is top 30.

He mentioned some of the Shark's boys were giving him heaps leading into the game. He'll be having a field day with them now.

Hope we keep him on the books for next year.
With older Brailey off to Newcastle and Flanno Jr to the Roosters, they’ll probably have a spot for him there again. We may do too, depending of course.
