Are these reports accurate that Keary will be on $1.3million next year via a back-ended deal ?
No, hes loaded to effective 1.0 but it was approx 8% each year increase - i think it averaged to 800k per yr, the problem is that it keeps going until 2024. Crichton is worth more than what they expected + JWH keeping on. Suaalii is also going to be an expensive task as he is prepared to test market too, but his attitude is very mercenary re dollars. Just a case of player quality increasing and contract value moving with it ahead of Roosters planning - a rare **** up for them. They did the Keary contract smoothly as Cronk had retired in 19 and they had Walker for 21, so it made financial sense.
