Don't believe everything you read. 67%. That's ridiculous.

The answer, of course, is the obvious one. We're just not skilful enough to get repeat sets.

I hope the club is thinking hard about how we get our next number 7.

GLTD...not a thing mate but find hard to think of a redeeming feature about your good self...even though you do make sense with your last line.
DrewBoo I do think 67% seems a tad high...a lot high...

1. Minichello $500k, 2. Toupo $200k, 3 Jennings $650k, 4 SKD $400k, 5 RTS $175k 6, Maloney $500k, 7 Pearce - $700k, 8 JWH - $500k, 9 Friend $400k, 10 Moa $250k, 11 SBW $1 mill, 12 Guerra $300k, 13 Cordener $300k.

That is $5.875 mill for just the top 13 players.

Mate you are dreaming if you think that SBW is on the books for $1M, more like $500,000 and the rest well just take a guess on how he is getting the other $500,000.

Bushman, that's my point

Surely Minichello is no longer anywhere near 500k.

Regardless, I see SBW, Jennings, and to as lesser extent, Maloney, as their big recent purchases. Apart from that everyone's come up through the grades or at least has been there a long time. Look's like a well-built side to me.

Given that we have forwards coming out of our backside and yet paid a fortune for Tony Williams, we could probably learn a thing or two.

No fight .. Steve and I on a hill at Belmore, we'd still take the piss out of each other but still be shoulder to shoulder .. We'd both love/want nothing more than a GF win at our own or each other expense .. Stuff who's right or wrong 
GLTD

GLTD

Just a question though Steve .. If we swapped hodkickson for Sherwin(even now) do you think our chances at winning a grand final would double ?..

PJGB...so the club captain, longest serving Rooster is one of the lowest paid? LOL 
GLTD

Mini would still be on or over $500,000 .. I'm sure Pattern and Ryan was with us during their final years.. You can scream loyalty all you want .. It's the $$$ that makes them stay.. Look at good old Pricey 
GLTD

JWH ON $500,000 .. What pounds?... Trex or JWH .. Tough decision that one !

@nancy do you know what the story is with Harlan? Is he departing the club?

will patrick templeman be at the club next year?

GLTD you mention Sherwin therefore I think you are an older poster, therefore you would remember his kicking game and he was a master at 40/20 kicks. What I am driving at is that if Hodkinson learned these skills we would triple our chances at making the GF and be in contention to blowing any of the top eight off the park.

GLTD ...reminds of a conversation that Dean Jones had with Don Bradman after he scored a double hundred in India...went something like Jones...how do you think you would have gone. Bradman I don't really know if I could have done as well....Jone s Really!!! Bradman...you have to remember I'm nearly 90...but I get the drift...kicking coach for a week would be great. .

2004 semi at the the SFS (what the fekk they call it now I don't know***) against Melbourne. Sherwin 11 out of 10...

The thing that saddens me is that the comp. is at the absolute mercy of the filthy latte swilling Chardonnay sipping scum. Can't see them being beaten I'm afraid.

*** Speaking of things I don't know what they call it now ...the Sydney Entertainment Centre ...which will always be the Sydney entertainment Centre....is now something like the Qantas Credit Union Area..

@annav3 Last I heard it was 50/50 on Harlan and Templeman has been told he is not wanted and will probably sign with the Northern Pride which is the Cowboys feeder club. Think they handled him wrong and he should have been kept at fullback, feel sorry for him because he does have talent, as you know.

I suppose its not too late to actually find the skill of putting the ball in the in-goal, even the Roosters who were pathetic at it are having success. A few more hundred hours of practice and we will be right.

Axe1 - anyone who seriously thinks the Roosters are operating under the cap must look out their window and expect to see Mary Poppins floating by. 15 or 16 Origin or Test players in the 1 team. Not even Brisbane can do that now yet the NRL expect us all to believe a Sydney club can do it.

That would have to be a point that nobody would disagree with. That legacy of the Super League war has surely worn out its welcome now. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck....

the roosters,souths & Brisbane for starters have been over the salary cap for an eternity.all the media will freely admit that nick politis is 1 of the most influencial men in rugby league circles.the roster they have,souths & broncos it isn't too difficult to work out! brown-paper bag money,its no t traceable! mafia money!

I think there should either be unrestricted garnishing, or a single, Olympic standard mayonnaise erhh salary cap

as for the current situation with trent hodkinson, 1 option that des could explore could be next year trialling him maybe at lock.trent is strongly built,is a strong defender,top passing game & top/notch goalkicker as we know.des in his time at manly himself played majorly at half,but also played five-eighth,fullback,centre,hooker & lock very well.he could play anywhere at all! it could take some pressure off trent to try move to lock in trials next year,nothing ventured,nothing gained.

Good call Sea Eagle I was always thinking that Hodokins wound make a good lock . More of a Grimaldi type player . He is too good of a player to let go . Hearing rumours Pritchard is off to the UK . Could relieve some cap money for a couple of young gun players.
