WESTS Tigers enforcer Gareth Ellis will leave the club at the end of this season after being granted a release from the final year of his contract on compassionate grounds.
After getting married in England to partner Rachael over the off-season, the British International decided to return home sooner than scheduled to raise his young family.
He approached Tigers boss Stephen Humphreys and coach Tim Sheens for a release earlier this week and announced the news to teammates at the end of this afternoon’s training session.
Ellis was contracted until the end of 2013 and has been http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/gareth-ellis-240-minutes-from-pom-greatness/story-e6frexnr-1226135152941 the Tigers' stand-out forward since making his NRL debut in 2009.

The 30-year-old will resume playing in the UK Super League in 2013 but is yet to commence negotiations with any English clubs.

COOPER DEAL BREWING Another off-contract Khoder Nasser client, Reds and Wallabies star Quade Cooper, has also been under the attention of the Sydney Roosters. The five-eighth has long said he and Sonny Bill Williams wanted to play together and it seems the Roosters are all too happy to oblige - should the price tag fit. ''He's a quality player,'' Roosters recruitment officer Peter O'Sullivan said yesterday. ''It's something we'd look at but I don't know if we'd be in a position to afford it.'' The Roosters have been in contact with Nasser about Cooper, and with Anthony Minichiello freeing up about $200,000 next season, the early departures of big-dollar recruits Todd Carney and Nate Myles, plus the fact the NRL salary cap will increase to $5 million in 2013, it seems the Roosters could find a way. However, the good oil is Cooper will ink a big-money preliminary deal with NRL expansion bid team the Brisbane Bombers - who hope to enter the competition in 2014 - and seek another one-year extension with the Reds and ARU that will see him take part in the once-in-a-career British Lions tour. Negotiations are continuing after Cooper met with Nasser in Sydney last Wednesday.

^^^ Quade Cooper will want big money to leave union. a SBW will certainly want big money to come back to the NRL (and even then he may decide that the deal he agreed to is not enough and walk out) the cap is going to have to go up[ quite a bit for them to sign both players. remembering the second the cap goes up the rest of their players will want an increase of salary.

Quade Cooper > David Campese . . . why would a League team want a player who can't tackle, forget the inept decision making

I'm wondering if Ellis is really leaving, or if that's what the Tigers thought he was saying because they couldn't understand a bloody word he was talking about.

big name player = roosters gimmie gimmie gimmie I wantee wantee wantee.

They seem to buy these players and then decide a year or two later to replace them with the next flavour of the month on the market.

the Roosters to sign a high profile, high priced Union half AFTER they have secured James Maloney for the 2013 season and already have Pearce at halfback

plus, Anasta is looking to re-sign and they have just brought over Daniel Mortimer

Yeah it is a bit strange. Its a lot like signing a high profile, high priced English forward when the team is already choc full forward talent.

We not trying to sign Cronk and Inglis basically fell into our lap...

Look at the roosters, they buy them and get rid of them a few seasons later to try and buy the next flavor of the month, JHW looks to be the next one to fall on the scrap heap.

Inglis didn't fall into your lap ... he had agreed to come to the Broncos the Crowe did his best to get him to renig by offering a beefed up deal.

and FTR, i'm not unhappy that he didn't come to the Broncos, I like Reed (who is now an international) and he come with a far cheaper price tag. IMO, Inglis saves his best games for the rep games.

He plays fullback for the Reds half the game. It has proven very affective.
