Curiosity talking here. Can anyone tell me how the players get paid? Do they get it weekly, fortnightly, monthly, yearly or does it vary?
Up to the manager I believe. IIRC, it all goes through them, they take their cut, and distribute the rest to the player. Most players have pretty tricky setups to do with investments & super to minimise tax.

Wouldn't the actual pay day be something the players accountant set up? I thought they got the initial money in quarters or halves. I'll wager there's plenty of variety in how they get the cash, some might even get a weekly wage with a significant portion away and earning for the future.

True, most of it will be set up by the accountant, but the manager is generally the gatekeeper. I base this on maybe 3 players though, so, in the interests of Sample Size, it may not be the best indication...

What is the going rate for the best wingers these days?
I think parra were reported to have signed Fergo for $500-$600k last year... also reports Mansour re-signed with panthers on about the same amount from memory.

I think that is probably want Oates is worth... probably even a little more than he's worth, but he's a bronco so they might look to give that to him.

$750k is absurd and probably just Badel talking out of his ass as usual.

Crichton was reported to have signed for $850k last year and there is no way Oates could be considered $100k less as a backrower than Crichton

This might sound unfair considering the injuries, but Bird is on or around the 750 mark. Is his input worth more than Oates? Taking into account his time at the Sharks?

I know it’s generally considered a bad $$$ deal with him, but still

With a forever-rising salary cap, Oates is worth 750k to our team. Change my mind.
OK. The salary cap is barely increasing, from 9.1M in 2018 to 9.7M in 2022. 150K extra per year. 10k of that is eaten up by mandated wage rises for players 27-30. The minimum wage for players 1-26 is increasing 5k per year so there's additional cap space eaten up there. In 2020 with a cap of 9.4 million with players 27-30 taking up 300k we have 9.1 million to split amongst the remaining 26 players, none of whom can be paid less than 110k. So that's an average of 350k. For every 750k player in our top 26 we need almost 2 players on minimum wage to offset it.

Will players salaries ever be released for the public to see?
It's frustrating/confusing hearing a report that X player is on this and another report saying the same player is on a different sum by 100-200 thousand?

I don't mind TPA's not being released but it would be interesting to see how ours and other teams salaries are allocated/distributed

Ofahengaue seems to have come good, let's hope his re-signing sees him continue.

Su'a is now the one worrying me. Pretty positive he did re-sign a new contract last year, and he was being chased by Souths with a decent offer and the opportunity to start, so I don't think he would have been cheap to retain.

Can't remember though the timing of it. Was it while Seibold was still in charge? Because if so, it would be weird that he doesn't fit in with Seibold's coaching style, coaches normally go for players that suit their type of game plan.

he'll be fine, just needs to play big mins at q cup to get some form back. he's young, it happens. Glenn is leaving end of season anyway i'd imagine so there'll be a spot for him then if he doesn't make it back.

Souths were very light in edge backrowers for the coming season when they chased Su'a. I wouldn't read a heap into it.
