Both Manu and Mitchell are signed with the Roosters till the end of 2020. I reckon they will both be shortly secured for 5 more years if the Chooks are smart.

If they are paying them what they are worth, they will need to raid the Sea Eagles and Eels for new signings for next few years, unless they plan to cheat the salary cap ... oh that's right, they self regulate now ... wat could possibly go wrong!LOL

Seriously though, two of the best young players in the game, and getting better ... damn it.
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

I quietly torment my sons re Manly's Master = Evans .

I think he is very ordinary for the money they pay him and to pick him in the Kangaroos yesterday amazed me .

I think our NRL stocks are limited .     Easts look good things for 2019

Where were these jobs when I was toiling? Hundreds of thousands to stay away from work.

Valentine Holmes to reportedly quit NRL to pursue NFL dream

VALENTINE Holmes is reportedly set to do a Jarryd Hayne and quit the NRL immediately to pursue an NFL dream.

The Daily Telegraph reports the Cronulla star has told the Sharks he intends to quit rugby league after recently meeting with “a major NFL franchise” during a visit to Nike’s US head office

The playing future of Holmes has been under a cloud with the fullback linked with a move to North Queensland from the 2020 NRL season.

Sounds like a manager doing a hail mary to get him out of his contract at Cronulla.

Cowboys here I come.

If he is playing in NFL next season, I will be representing Australia in the one day world cup next year

NFL is an incredibly difficult game compared to rugby league.



"Coming from a quarterback who has been trained by several professional athletes via camps and paid training, the playbooks for offenses are very intricate and difficult to learn. It was one of my first questions when I met former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner.

He described to me that the wristbands only provide up to roughly 100 plays, but it doesn't stop there. You must keep in mind that there is an audible system, and for each play, there may be 5-6 variations of it that change the routes, hot reads, positioning of certain backs, etc.

The memorization on the part of the players is immensely difficult, as not only do they have to know the play, but they must master it and recognize the code words that the quarterback will be telling them if he chooses to audible into a new play.

Considering this, the average NFL offense can have upwards of 500 plays depending on their formations, personnel, and different variations of each play. It's not impossible to master each of these plays, but it takes lots of mental preparedness and studying in order to become an offensive player."


I think, as I thought with Haynes, that he is deluding himself. If an Australian NRL rugby league makes it in the NRL player in any offensive position I will eat my hat. And by make it, I mean consistently gets a game for one whole season and does well enough that they keep him the following season.
