State of Origin Rep
Which could potentially mean a 10% discount on a guy like Bullemor for the rest of his career... or is it only 10% on their next contract??i don't think they do ... but there are restrictions, in regards to salary, experience etc to be eligible to be on the developmental list.
in a normal season the development list players need permission from the NRL to play before june 30
and the other interesting thing is, should a player spend 2 years on a clubs development list, then gets promoted to the top 30, the club receives a small reduction from is salary on the cap. i think it is a 10% discount
I know young guys are pretty naive, but when a club can get a free 10% bonus on your contract you might think of sticking around, if your motives are just financial.
Theoretically, if Staggs wants $600k Broncos could literally offer you $60k more for the same salary cap, which is chump change to an organisation racking up $50M a year!!
I’m hoping we can look to exploit this moving forward given it is basically the ONLY advantage a development club can actually gain nowadays
