It’s not gonna be easy !!

With Mahoney , gutho, papa, niukore , RCG off contract next year, its gonna be hard to retain them all. I love every one of these players but who do we not resign . (not doing every off contract player)

1.Papa - He is only on a 150k deal until the end of 2022. He will likely be offered at least 500k from another club. Do we offer him 400k or less and hopefully he takes a pay cut to remain at Parra or do we go all out and try and offer him as much as he wants (Realistically) to keep him. I can tell you , he is worth a ton more than 150k. Do remember, he did take a 300k pay cut to rebuild his career and no doubt that was a huge success . I Wouldn't be surprised if he decides to be loyal to the club that gave him his second chance . Please stay 🙏 

2. Mahoney - He is only only on a cheapish salary but once at the end of 2022, he will be offered anywhere 600k - 900k from the 3 Queensland clubs in Bronx, Titans, dolphins. He is a gun and I believe he is the key for our future . Parra please resign Mahoney ASAP

3.The king 👑 - On around 650 -700k a year and reports he wants more -(Hopefully they are false), Is gutho the hardest one to retain ? I love the king but is he worth more than 800k ? I'm going to leave this one to the fans and the club. I would offer him no more than 750k. There is a chance that the dolphins might offer him a contract . Hopefully he is willing to be loyal rather than a bigger pay check . 🙏🙏

4. Niukore - He is very important for our future but reports that the Warriors are very keen on luring him to the club. I believe he might just slip away unless if we don't resign Matterson . It's either Marata or Matterson (both would be nice, but we do have a salary unfortunately ). I believe we should resign niukore as he is a talented footballer who has so much potential. It's gonna be a fight 

5. RCG - I do believe this one is going down hill. Reagan's management has said that he is certain that he will be off to south east Queensland to sign to play for the dolphins and will most likely not open his contract talks to remain at Parra past 2022. I'm filthy on this one because he his leaving his club to be the face of a new franchise . Good on him I suppose. Hopefully Parra can sway his decision to reconsider a talk to resign with Parra but unfortunately I do believe rcg is a goner.

  • I'd say priorities will be Gutho, Mahoney, D.Brown and Papali'i. RCG and Niukore look long gone to me, respect RCG for letting us know this early. Gives us a chance to resign others.

  • I'd let Gutherson go, we need spark from our fullback.

    He's been stifling our attack like Paul Gallen used to do to the Blues.


    • Stifling our attack? 13 tries and 20 try assist, his defence is the best in the comp saves plenty of tries. The only players I would swap him for are Teddy and Turbo and neither are available.

      • Yeah 20 try assists and 16 of those were against teams that finished below us on the ladder..... that's not saying much is it.


        • What about the tries he saved you complete and utter one track flog.

          Stop talking your doing real Eels fans a dis service 

          • One thing we can be certain of is that Scott's knowledge of the game can be written on a postage stamp, with a couple of acres left to spare. 

            • Lol and then some.

  • Please stop calling Gutherson " The King ".  It's very embarrassing. 

    • Don't support Parra then 😂

      • Just to put it in perspective from outsiders looking in.  It's like St Merge fans started calling Jack De Bellin , Mr Perpetual Motion. That's how embarrassing it is as an Eels fan hearing Gutherson being referred to as the The King.

"True enough Capain, but they could have tried harder to tie them up before November 1. The fact that they all went to market shows the club either did not tie them up, or could not tie them up, prior to November 1."
