Still a bit to learn but definitely on the up. I don’t know what you think but maybe giving Crichton a run at fullback could be a solution? Otherwise if they can land a top fullback, with Api and Cleary that spine is looking ????

Your team's report card after Round 5

Yeah I agree they can be deceptive. Sometimes teams can have a lot of changes every week and can’t get a role on. Certainly some good players on the fringe for manly but I still think a few little signings would improve their depth.

Yes definitely 100%. Thanks again

Your team's report card after Round 5

Thankyou, yeah I can definitely see what you are saying. They were probably my hardest team to rank along with Brisbane and Souths. Looking at the draw they have been poor, but when they have performed they look great and have plenty of points in them. Just don’t know what you are going to get from them. Cheers

Suli is definitely a big loss and Manly are a great side. They certainly do have some good youngsters coming through. Just looking at their squad particularly watching the Canterbury cup (when it’s normally on) I feel they could bolster up their depth abit.

Your team's report card after Round 5

Thank you very much. I rated the teams on their expectations and performances so far. Also tried to take into consideration who they had played.

The transfer fees would be agreed apon by the clubs not a governing body, I was just stating in the article that the nrl would need to give each team a starting balance which is only allowed for transfer fees.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

Yes the same thing does happen in football but teams are compensated for losing players. Meaning they can bring in someone of the same quality rather than receive nothing and potentially for struggling clubs fail to attract other players, creating further disparity in squad quality across the NRL. I feel like the system if negotiated with the players, teams and NRL it could work well.

I don’t see it as restrictions as it wouldn’t work that way, it’s a more organised system which would work for the players and teams as it does in the Football world.

Ok, It was the Tigers only option to release him otherwise he’s at the club not wanting to play for them. They were forced to do something. I don’t see it as mutual but if you do fair enough. Also the transfer window would restructure what is now a messy contract system.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

Depends on each scenario and contract. It’s not black and white however there are and have been cases where players have forced a move as I stated through the example of what happened with Ryan Matterson.
In a transfer system the club approaching the player would agree to a fee with the club the player is contracted with first, then the club would be free to negotiate a deal. Once the player signs the contract then the fee would be paid to the club who the player was previously with.

I did specifically mention Ryan Matterson in the article, who broke his contract because he wanted to leave. The reason the Tigers let him go was so they could get a replacement and didn’t want it to affect the team. So its not really mutual consent.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

Could be a good idea but it would be very hard to implement that across every contract and I don’t think the managers would agree to it too.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

That is similar to what would happen in the transfer model idea, but it would also decrease the amount of contracts broken early and longevity of negotiations.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

That is true but they could propose and work on a model that would be accepted by the players association.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

It would be hard for players to wait until they don’t have a contract to then negotiate as clubs would be able to pay lower and if the players don’t accept they may be left without any contract.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

Hi Paul, I think a transfer window would decrease the amount of broken contracts which still have years to run, allow clubs to be compensated to buy a replacement when they lose a player and still allow an active market. There is always going to be speculation, rumors and talk of player movements, but a transfer window would limit when players can be signed which does resolve the issue of mid-season moves, also compensating the team which loses a player.

Is a transfer window the solution to the NRL’s player contract fiasco?

I definitely agree there needs to be a new system, a draft would be an interesting idea also but i think a transfer window would allow clubs to sign players still but not lead to as much breaking of contracts early, plus the clubs would be compensated for losing a player.
