You'd think he'll be getting incremental increases. I highly doubt he starts next season on 750k when he won't be starting.

He'll be worth it.
He may well be, but 4 x $750k for an 18 year old who has played a grand total of 30 minutes and managed to get a concussion, two injuries and a season ending surgery in that time is batshit crazy on face value.

On a different note, if I was a Broncos player I'd be praying for a season ending injury. Seems to be a guaranteed way to make a cool $3 million.

We want to keep these young guys, this is the money we're going to have to pay. Clubs were swooping in with big offers.

I have no doubt this is why we didn't match Arrow's offer.

TPA would be the bulk of that right now i imagine. Hes young and potentially hot marketing property. TPA brings low dollar risk to the clubs salary cap also, so if he becomes injured again or bombs out - we aren't burnt as bad.

In comparison to have TPA on someone like boyd - would be no where near as much worth.

Not saying it's you, mate - but plenty of people have kicked up a stink about paying for 'potential' so that it doesn't go to another club. Same with Milf - and in the end it comes down to how the talent is used. Obviously you want a mix of experienced players with youthful, promising rookies - but you have you use them right, or it's a waste. Haas might be a future star, his one game was promising...but it's a lot to throw at potential. We'll see where it goes as far as who we keep vs who we lose.

And you would be freaking out if the Broncos weren't able to retain him. You can't have it both ways. You have to pay for potential these days.

It can't though, right? By definition third party deals aren't part of player contracts with the club.

I'm sure this figure has been plucked from thin air, regardless.
Clubs can source third party agreements, but those are included in the cap.

The details of third party agreements sourced by the player must be given to the club and the club then can get approval for it to be excluded from the cap.

For all we know, the figure here includes those.

Payne Haas to sign record-breaking $3 million deal with Broncos

By Adrian Proszenko

18 July 2018 — 3:00pm

Payne Haas is about to sign the richest contract for a teenager in rugby league history, with the rookie Bronco set to sign a $3 million deal to remain at Red Hill.

Haas has played only three NRL games, but good judges have seen enough already to suggest he will become one of the most damaging forwards in the game.

Up to a dozen clubs were hoping to chase him when he officially became a free agent on November 1, but the Broncos are about to take him off the market with a mammoth four-year deal. The contract hasn’t been signed, but it’s understood the parties have agreed to terms.

Such is the regard he is held in, NSW and Queensland were engaged in a tug-of-war for his services before he even made his NRL debut this year against South Sydney. Phil Gould, commentating for the Nine network during Haas’ first match, said at the time: “You’re seeing the birth of a superstar.”

The Blues have officially claimed him as their own and the 18-year-old is expected to push his claims for a State of Origin debut under Brad Fittler in coming years.

The Australian Schoolboys star is one of the biggest things to hit the NRL, standing at 194cm and weighing in at 120kg. He has earned comparisons to Andrew Fifita due to his mobility and ability to bend the line.

Haas’ decision to stay put is a huge boost for Brisbane as they prepare for their run into the finals. It’s also a blow to his suitors, who believed they could build their forward pack around the youngster for the next decade.

The deal is one of considered the largest ever signed by anyone so young. Moses Suli set what was considered a record when he signed a $1.3 million, three-year deal with Wests Tigers before he had even reached first grade. However, Haas’ contract dwarfs that, with most experts believing he is worth every cent.

The massive contract comes at a time where Haas is in the middle of a long stint on the sidelines. The hulking teenager injured his shoulder in his third NRL game which has ruled him out for the rest of the 2018 season.
