    The FoxSports News channel is quoting John Grant that the deal is done.
    The Players agreed after the ARLC agreed to raise the cap to 7m from 2017.
    The SOO payments go to 40k and the minimum wage goes from 44k to 70k.

    Hopefully Brett's contract will now be registered by the NRL :)

    Im hopng some posters here can entertain us with conspiracy theories such as:

    "see what a little bit of ARLC blackmail can do when you tell players they are under threat of a doping & match fixing investigation"

    About time. The length of time this has taken has been ridiculous.

    Could we have kept one of Lussick, Harrison, Whare if that was the case?

    I have never bought into salary cap queries but after looking at the Dogs top 17 in the Tele how are they under the cap?? Their bench would start at most clubs. They are going to be extremely hard to beat.

      Don't think so Ryan, I think the club was sweating on this outcome, and even if we did we would of had to pay overs fom them. Whare and Lussick we signed on big deals, not sure about Harrison.

      Darren, everyone looks at our roster the same way.

      I hate how a club has a good season and everyone starts pointing fingers at them

        Hi Disco, we had lots of lower end players such as jorge, joe, rose, etc but just looking at them, wow, it's a dynamic team! We had Mauro, Robinson, Foran etc compared to Klemmer, Finnacue.

          Klemmer as not played NRL ffs and Finnacue only just came onto the scene. Neither would be on big coin. Look at their halves compared to ours. We are rumoured to have a million plus tied up there. If their gun juniors kick on and they keep them without losing anyone, then you ask questions.

          Darren, all due respect mate, but look at our team holistically:-

          01. Brett Stewart
          02. Jorge Taufua
          03. Steve Matai
          04. Jamie Lyon
          05. David Williams
          06. Kieran Foran
          07. Daly Cherry-Evans
          08. Jason King
          09. Matt Ballin
          10. Brent Kite
          11. Anthony Watmough
          12. Justin Horo
          13. Glenn Stewart

          14. Jamie Buhrer
          15. Richie Fa'aoso
          16. George Rose
          17. Joe Galuvao

          THEN:

          18. Ben Farrar
          19. Brenton Lawrence
          20. Esi Tonga

          (EVEN THE 18-20 START IN OTHER TEAMS)

          THEN:

          21. Ligi Sao
          22. Michael Chee-Kam
          23. Peta Hiku

          Before we really start getting into the depth.

          Make no mistakes, I personally think we have on paper the best quality, best depth riddled team in the NRL. I wouldn't swap it for any other team - including the Bulldogs.

          Imagine supporting a team like Canberra, or The Eels, and looking at our roster. LOL
