Jesse Ramien’s potential return to Cronulla has hit a road block, with the club still needing to find cap space to secure him, according to

Cronulla are looking to acquire the centre on a four-year $2 million deal, but would first need to move on players to accommodate for his salary.

Moving contracts could prove difficult for the Sharks, who have several players tied up on multi-year deals.

Half of the club’s salary cap are tied up to just six players in Shaun Johnson, Andrew Fifita, Aaron Woods, Wade Graham, Josh Dugan and Matt Moylan.

Ramien is reportedly happy to be patient at the moment and await the Sharks looking to resolve their salary cap situation.

The speedster’s agent Gavin Orr told The Daily Telegraph his preference was to move to Cronulla, but revealed that Canterbury were also in the picture.

“We’ve already had discussions with the Bulldogs but at the moment we are just waiting to see where the Cronulla are at first.”


Why aren't the Eels making a play for him? Cheaper & way better than has-been Jennings who was on $800K (but only playing like a $200K player)!

  • Blokes a fuckwit. Thats why.

    • spoken like a gentleman. How on earth would you know what type of person he is.

  • Issues at a number of clubs, hard pass.

  • Jesse needs a stint at the storm

  • Because Ramien is a right centre and Jenko is a left centre, and Jenko's new deal will be cheaper than whatever Ramien ends up getting.

  • Sharks are really on a slippery slope can’t see them staying in Sydney if a team has to relocate.


    • They're not going anywhere, they are one of the most financially secure clubs in Sydney now that they have finalised the development of all that land at Woollooware.

      • Brett, Sharks will make you think theu are financially secure but they sold their properties for way under value because they were so close to going under. It paid out their debts and gave them some money in the bank. The Sharks leagues club is closing for 2 years and they are trying to move their staff to the other local clubs. Problem is they cant afford to pay for their redundancies and they are asking the other clubs to pay them so that they wont have to pay them out

        • so this means  the newtown players  have little chance to play for the sharks.. unless they take contracts  real low..


          • Actually Robert they have alpt more chance of playing because they are all on unders. Look at Sorenson, Gray, Katoa, Mulitano, Kennedy and Flanagan this year alone

I like this video: it shows how legal "backward" passes "float forwards"; naturally, like a bird flying contently."
