    Deadset, Tony Williams, you are kidding me. What a fucking knucklehead. Why are Leaguies such absolute plonkers?

    Interesting turn of events. Tigers playing home games at Parramatta, Parramatta not ???? Either the Tigers got a shit deal or the Eels are kidding themselves.

    Judging by some of the player/coach negotiations and associated transactions......I'm willing to guess the Tigers signed the first deal that came across the table.

    Without knowing the ins and outs of the deal Parra is attempting to negotiate, good on them for sticking to their guns and trying to drive a harder bargain.

    Sick of the old excuse we got about "there's nothing we can do to change where we play and what it costs because we are locked into a dud stadium deal".

    When you're Bernie Gurr and with salary cap rorts and bibs and bobs you've lost $20M over the last 2 years, you need the best deal you can get. But realistically the money the leagues club would lose moving games away from Western Sydney Stadium wouldn't be worth the fight to get a public transport package included in the price for 5 people.

    he Dragons are considering making a dramatic bid to sign Parramatta superstar Jarryd Hayne.

    Hayne remains unsigned at the Eels with training for the new season just a couple of weeks away.

    Wide World of Sports has heard that the Dragons are looking to sign Hayne and use him as a utility back at either fullback or centre in 2019.

    The two-time Dally M Player of the Year’s price has gone down considerably in the wake of a modest season for the Eels and the fact the club is hesitating to re-sign him.

    So the Dragons may make Hayne a modest offer to test the waters.

    Only a week ago, Eels chief executive Bernie Gurr said the club was in no hurry to re-sign Hayne.

    "Certain dominoes need to fall where they need to fall. We’re patient," Gurr told AAP.

    A frustrated Hayne vented on Twitter in the wake of that comment, saying he was still waiting for an offer from the Eels.

    Fark I would take Hayne at newie.
    Play him at 6 or 1. Would be more than happy with him now as his market value is at an all time low

    That's because he's heading away from "QLD'ers think he's sh*t" and heading to "everyone thinks he's shit" territory.

    he would work best on an incentive-based contact if they still exist.

    maybe, but then wouldn't the club have to leave the full amount of the contract free on the cap anyway so they don't go over if he hits all the targets?

    There would be a heap of players on incentive-based contracts at the moment in the league, I dont see leaving a bit of room as an issue. Even so, sign him to a 1 year deal with bonuses for reaching targets. Factor the bonuses into the next season's contract.

    There's usually half a dozen clubs every year that go over the cap my a small amount for reasons like this. Better players with good managers have rep bonuses triggered, guys playing Inta have "x amount of games in the NRL". Ask Tyrone Peachy why he wanted to renig on the Titans. His manager is a flop and didn't include rep bonuses in the contract.

    Essentially they have to if the salary cap auditor (prior to registering the contract) expects the bonus to be realised:

    https://www.nrl.com/operations/the-game/the-salary-cap/

    How much can clubs spend?

    The Base Salary Cap for 2018 is $9.1m for the 30 highest remunerated players at each club plus up to $0.2m Veteran and Developed Player allowance.

    For players in the Top 30 Salary Cap, the Salary Cap value for a player each year is broken down into the following categories:

    -      Playing Fee – fully included in the Salary Cap.

    -      Included benefits – all benefits provided to players including accommodation, travel, motor vehicles, interest free loans and manager's fees and any applicable fringe benefits tax.

    -      Win bonuses and appearance fees – Payments for appearing in or winning a game are calculated based on the number of NRL games the player played in the prior year multiplied by any applicable bonuses. For win bonuses, the calculation is capped at 13 wins. Example: A player appeared in 10 NRL games in 2017 and now has a 2018 Contract for $100,000 contract fee plus $1,000 per game. His - Salary Cap Value would be $100,000 plus 10 times $1000 = $110,000.

    -      Other bonuses – Any other bonus contained in a player's contract will be calculated in the Salary Cap if the NRL Salary Cap Auditor expects him to achieve the bonus based on his prior year's performance.


    Example: A player played State of Origin in 2017. His 2018 Contract includes a $20,000 State of Origin bonus. This bonus will be included in the player's 2018 Salary Cap Value.

    Note: Where a bonus is achieved by a player but was not assessed in the player's Salary Cap Value, the bonus is carried forward and calculated in the player's Salary Cap Value for the following year.

    Parra can't fit Hayne under their current salary cap. It makes me think they don't real want him anyway as they just recently re-signed 4 players, Gower, Terepo, George Jennings and Pritchard. Surely without these players Parra could have afforded Hayne instead.

    On another note, they're trying to offload Michael Jennings onto the Knights. After the season he had that would be a bad deal for the poor old Knights.

    They've been trying to move Moses or Norman to make the cap space. Suprised that Moses is so keen on staying. He left the Tigers because he wanted to win something and now has a spoon. Rached his goal firrst year, what's left to achieve.
