Someone in that New York consortium has been doing too much Colombian marching powder if they've included Darbs as a "veteran NRL star"
I think the super league has a marquee player allowance which is basically pay whatever you want and it doesnt fall in the cap.If the $$ SBW has signed for at Toronto is true then that's where I'd be heading if I was in Latrelles shoes.
He's already won 2 GFs played rep at the highest level and still young enough to come back to NRL if he feels the need.
In the mean time I would be filling my boots for a few seasons , travelling and living in another country without media pressure.
They're gonna be hard to beat next season if they can get RCG playing good footy.Matterson has agreed to terms with Parra for next season on a 2(+1) years deal
If Boyd phones it in for us imagine how bad he’d be over there. He’d probably have a no contact clause in his contract."A New York consortium has already identified veteran NRL stars, including Benji Marshall (34 years old), Kieran Foran (29), Brett Morris (33), Josh Morris (33), Darius Boyd (32), Sia Soliola (33), Aiden Tolman (30), Matt Prior (32), Jesse Bromwich (30), James Tamou (30) and James Graham (34), as potential marquee signings for when the team enters the third tier of the English Super League in 2021."
Interesting thoughts BP, always appreciate your insightIf St George could punt Mary, Mitchell would be a great fit. They have plenty of vacancies in the backline, so you could bring him in with the view of making him a fullback first and if that doesn't work out there's certainly room to play him in the centres. With a lot of contracts running out next year, they should be in the box seat to make a marquee signing like that.
Otherwise, I'd be keen to see what Maguire could get out of him. It'd almost be like the Tigers getting one back for Tedesco and again they have room at both fullback and in the centres.
Mitchell clearly wants to be a fullback and i think he could do well in that role up North. He isnt going to leave the Rorters to play center imo. Interesting though as i think if he signs there, they will either lose Drinkwater, or move Drinwater to 6 and Clifford may move on. I'd take either of those in a heatbeat tbh.
