Forgiveness is far easier to achieve than permission.

The current contract doesn’t guarantee a cent. Sample A came back positive and it’s almost unheard of for the B sample to come back negative. If the Eels stopped paying him in February then obviously they are on solid ground to use the remainder of the 400k salary for someone else if there is a spot on the roster available. He was probably asked to break ties on the contract because there is very little chance he will have it overturned. Maybe there was some sort of handshake deal if the unlikely happened. I think it’s the least he could have done after that bombshell on the eve of a knock out finals game last year.

Eels terminate Michael Jennings' NRL contract

Even though they stopped paying his salary in Feb, he was still taking up a slot in the 30 man roster. By finalising it they can fill that slot before August. Kotoni Staggs could be playing finals footy this year 😉

I doubt they’ve paid him out considering the stopped paying his salary in Feb.

Apparently Parra stopped paying him at the start of February.

Sorry Tom, basket case clubs shouldn’t be rewarded with getting a free shot at talent other clubs have developed. Sure the tigers should have had an incentive to keep the stars they developed but not to take others clubs juniors.

Fantasy draft: What might the NRL look like with the introduction of a rookie player draft?

I must have mentioned it a dozen times already. Offer juniors that remain with the club that developed them a discount on the cap.

Junior cap concessions the only way forward

A draft will almost surely make junior development even worse than it is now.

A bit late in commenting but I think that unless Teddy comes back this week and returns instantly to form then Parramatta could really turn the screws on the roosters. Bmoz is a massive loss. If Teddy sits out another week because of this concussion it could be a big score. It could also start a bit of rot. For the Roosters sake and my SuperCoach team, Teddy coming back in form is a must.

The Sydney Roosters: NRL terminators

Thank god someone called out Hudson young and Ricky’s forward rotation. To be honest young was one of their worst performers over the past few weeks and was weak in defence against Parramatta and yet still gets 80mins.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 8

Ah I see. Missed that bit of news.

Unfortunately for Broncos fans, a fish rots from the head

I hate to defend a 1.2-1.3m dollar second rower but Tino hasn’t been at his best this year either. The two weeks before copping a two week suspension he would have barely made 100m. He was much better when playing 13 but it seems Peachy’s form has forced them to play Tino at prop.

If they lose staggs the real supporters should march on Red Hill in numbers and demand the resignation of the board, including the immediate stepping down of White.

She openly attacked him from a position of having absolutely no relevance in today’s administration. Furthermore she was 100% out of line with her comments on the subject to begin with. I’m glad he put her in her place.

He’d do better than Croft and dearden on current form.

A baffling decision AJ? You honestly can’t see the significant difference between the Hetherington and Perrera hits?

I warned of this last year. Be careful what you wish for. Most of these send offs will come from situations where the tackler does everything right

Is the NRL finally starting to 'get it' by punishing high shots?

Papali’i says hello.

The Panthers will go to another level with Apisai Koroisau's return

Yes watched he game and the halves seemed to go to the other side most of the second half. You’re right though, he put his cue in the rack at half time.

The salary cap burglars

154m from 17 runs with 4 offloads isn’t too bad considering he was in a well beaten side that completed at 68%. He now has 9 tries in 7 games.

Still want to call Fifita a burglar after that half?

Anthony Watmough comes to mind.

I have to disagree on one player. While I agree that David Fifita isn’t worth 1.3m (no forward is). I think he’s giving it everything he’s got and is largely the reason Gold Coast have the wins they do have.

Interesting, I never knew Packer was on a big contract. I had him on something around 300k with his history. Which coach signed that deal?

The salary cap burglars

It’s my first motor sport article. Don’t beat me up too much. The commentary was really there to set the scene for those that missed the race to get my point.

F1 must do away with its unfair unlapping rules

And I believe they are let go. The blue flag is only meant to stop a back marker from slowing down faster cars. I would have been more than happy for the lapped cars, if faster, to make their way thought he field and I’m sure those drivers from 1 to 8 would have been happy for Lewis to be fighting it out with them from a lap down.

F1 must do away with its unfair unlapping rules

To be clear I’m not calling for that. They were the rules when the season started and they must remain for the rest of the season. But going into next year I think it’s only fair they be done away with.

F1 must do away with its unfair unlapping rules

Im not claiming it because it benefited a top driver. I’m claiming it because it’s unfair on those that managed to keep their cars on the black stuff. I get why it was brought in and I don’t think the benefit outweighs the detriment.

F1 must do away with its unfair unlapping rules

I may or may not have had the IPL on in the back-ground when writing this utter garbage.

What about the car that was 199% behind? Safety car either rolling or not is there for safety and no over taking. Not to give bad drivers/teams a leg up. Have them start in the exact same position they were on track.
