HKF replied to ParramattaLurker's discussion Eels revive Burgess switch deal with tempting offer/Gutho rejects new contract.
"Yeah but that was a few years ago, when you consider what some other forwards are getting like Klemmer reportedly over $900k, Woods over $800k, Eastwood about $800k just to name a few, than the deal for George doesn't look that bad, in fact if you c…"

HKF replied to ParramattaLurker's discussion Eels revive Burgess switch deal with tempting offer/Gutho rejects new contract.
"Yes, 400k is what he is still owed by Souths for the rest of this season meaning they have already payed him about 200k for this season so far. To put it simply, he is currently on about $600k per year at souths and we will be paying him $400k this…"

"Great to see The Clubs foresight in keeping David associated with the Club.I can see David as an assistant coach one day and who knows where that will take him.Its "Good News Week" when you read articles like that about a Parra Player."

"I read it as 400 k for 2019 and 700k per year for seasons 2020 and 2021 is this what it is?"

"Bennett said Poore was only worth 350 or 400k and no more.  We paid overs and as it turned out he was right 
In fact I believe Bennett said no prop was worth for than 400k"

Alan Hunt replied to ParramattaLurker's discussion Eels revive Burgess switch deal with tempting offer/Gutho rejects new contract.
"Burgess when in form is worth the 700k, unfortunately when he isn't in form he isn't worth half that.
 
We do need another big body in the middle to help Junior but will he be the same player away from his brothers???"

Tigers Sign the last of the Jennings

Nrl give the green light for the Tigers to sign Robert Jennings. This is after the Nrl give the Tigers a pending Fine and salary cap breach notice. Does seem odd to me that they can sign new players when possibly have to get rid of players if found…
