What a coincidence that the day after Shaun Johnson wants out of the Warriors , suddenly Gareth Widdup, wants out of his 3 year contract , crystal ball says there has been a deal done already .Johnson in the red V for the next 3years .

Johnson does not want out at the Warriors, the club wants to move him to free up money for his replacement.

I am hearing that the new Zealand half back, Kodi Nikorima, has a clause, saying he can leave the Broncos, with a change in coach, and he is looking to exercise the clause.

If Widdup goes the Dragons are no chance next season!

Widdop is a gun, but this is his last chance to cash in, so his manager will do what he has to do!Ouch

I recently saw on Fox, a feature, which just showed ALL of Billy Slater's career tries.

Wow - it must be said, he WAS pretty good Slater, much as I hate The Melbourne Fraud from top to bottom!

It was interesting in that I had almost forgotten that Widdop was ex-Fraud ... anyway, whilst he was there, in that package, I reckon he was involved in almost 3 out of every 4 tries that Slater scored.

Agreed V, Dragons will struggle without him.

Widdop is a warrior.

Must have realized how much he missed the motherland during the recent test series.

What goes on in the Shire ?

They own their own ground ?

They own a heck of a property portfolio apparently ?

They have no cash ?

Make em merge with St Illawarra.

Thank god they sacked Bennett.   Finally.    Sorry old sod.   Cant imagine what that young sheila from Newcastle saw in him.   He is just a horrible old bloke.  Walked out on the Knights.  Left his wife of years,,,,for a much younger woman .  And his kids with problems. 
Good luck to the team who has got him.    Bet they arnt happy .

The only thing that saves Bennett at Souths are the Burgess boys.

If they can swing the other lads, then no problems, but if Inglis and Reynolds say to the group, forget what the old man says, do it this way, that will send them packing.

What has been said here is correct, Bennett has passed his use by date.

Expecting Jack Bird to be allowed to fly now, Pengai Jr will follow Bennett and with Darius on the down hill slide, and Gillett coming back from a serious injury, the Broncos look bottom eight material to me next season.

Not sure why you would pay a million for Seibold either. I mean at least Maguire won a premiership for the Bunnies.

Good on Bennett for standing his ground. The total fault lies at the feet of the Broncos management and Seibold

Souths will be fine next season. Bennett is far from past it, he I’ll deliver number 22 to te bunnies

Is Bennett getting his payout or have they found a way to sack him without paying him out for 2019?

That's what all this BS was about, wasn't it- Bennett wanting to be double paid for 2019?

I think the hold up was more about the difference in what each coach was due to earn next season, I believe Wayne was due about $500k more then Siebold.

No, he correctly wanted his contract honoured.

Marble, would you just walk away from your contract and a million bucks?

No way would you

Bennett should have stood his ground till everything was settled contractually and payouts agreed to.

I suspect if Wayne felt Souths were more chance of a premiership in 2019 then Brisbane he may have pushed harder for the move. Either that or he was deliberately trying to wreck the Broncos out of spite.

What sort of contract would Souths offer him? He had one more year at the Broncos and at his age, probably the end. He may extend his career by a couple of years with this, if the joint doesn't fall apart around him, amid all the gigantic egos at Souths.

Josh Mcguire is a massive out for Broncos, Pengai is not an 80 min player and that will affect rotations more than what people think . Cowboys have done very well .

No, he correctly wanted his contract honoured.

Shrunk - he was going for the double dip. It all backfired when he dishonoured his contract at the broncos by talking to Souths players while he was still in charge of the broncos - that's why he was sacked and forfeited his contract.
