No I don't have it but wondering if it exists??? Might make interesting reading!
I would say it just got a bit bigger after today!
There's a post a few pages back 'Off contract players' or something like that.Â Had a huge list, not sure if it was definitive or 100%, but gives a fair indication maybe
I know that John Mannah currently at the Sharks, has been to hell and back but if he turns out anything like his brother at Parra, we could do a lot worse?
I've got a more comprehensive list at home (in this week's RLW), but some of the more high profile players listed in a SMH article are Willie Mason, Michael Jennings, Brett Kimmorley, Luke O'Donnell, Ben Hornby, Brett Finch, Steve Matai, Michael Gordon, Frank Pritchard, Carl Webb, Eric Grothe and Mat Rogers. On top of this Blake Ferguson has activated a get-out clause with Stuart leaving and the scum have apparently given Brett White, Anthony Quinn, Ryan Hoffman and Sika Manu permission to look around, but as MK said there's probably more now. Also few players apparently returning to the NRL are Mark Riddell, Paul Whatuira, Steve Bell and Reni Maitua. If there's not a more comprehensive reply when I get home I'll post the names listed in RLW
Frank Pritchard and Michael Jennings please
OK now I'm home with RLW in front of me here we go. Sea Eagles Steve Matai, Ben Farrar, Terence Seu Seu Bulldogs Blake Green, Brett Kimmorley, Danny Williams, Heka Nanai, Joel Romelo, Shane Neumann, Corey Payne, Yileen Gordon, Tim Winitana Broncos Rohan Ahern, Denan Kemp, Lagi Setu, Ashton Sims Eels Jonathon Wright, Eric Grothe, Brendan Oake Roosters Sonny Tuigamala, Anthony Mininchello, James Aubusson, Nick Kouparitsas Warriors Jacob Lillyman, Jesse Royal Sharks Trent Barrett, Luke Covell, Stuart Flanagan, Grant Milligan, Taulima Tautai, Isaac Gordon, Lacen Joudo, Josh Cordoba, Josh Lewis, Scott Porter Titans Aaron Cannings, Brad Meyers, Jordan Atkins, Bodene Thompson, Matt White, Clinton Toopi, Riley Brown, Mat Rogers Dragons Ben Hornby, Michael Greenfield, Bronx Goodwin, Ricky Thorby, Michael Lett, Nick Emmett, Jason Nightingale, Luke Priddis, Kalifa Fai-Fai Loa Storm Brett Finch, Luke MacDougall, Bryan Norrie, Rory Kostjasyn, Justin O'Neill Tigers Daniel Fitzhenry, Taniela Tuiaki, Junior Moors, Willie Mataka, Wade Mackinnon Raiders Glen Buttriss, Danny Galea, Troy Thompson, Scott Logan, James Stuart, David Milne, Brett Kelly, Adam Mogg Knights George Ndaira, Steve Simpson, Ben Cross, Adma MacDougall Cowboys Luke O'Donnell, Obe Geia, Grant Rovelli, John Williams, Steve Southern, Carl Webb, Ty Williams, Willie Mason, Dane Hogan Rabbitohs Ben Cross, Garret Crossman, Colin Best, Rhys Wesser, Junior Vai Vai, Luke Capewell Panthers Nigel Plum, Wade Graham, Joseph Paulo, Frank Pritchard, Frank Puletua, Michael Jennings, Michael Gordon, Gavin Cooper, Brad Tighe
If we needed a winger, that Fai-Fai Loa from Saints would be the man, but not needed here, he is a gun Vai Vai from Souths interests me, he looked the goods in his couple of runs last season, 1 of them may have even been when they beat us.
All Storm players except Cronk Inglis Smith & Slater. The Storm team will be made of another 13 players from St Kilda Tavern.
Good to see Foran isn't on that list. There's plenty of good players out there at the moment. I don't know how we'd fit them in but we could do with another prop or two. They'll have massive issues if they go down that path. If Bellamy can get that right he's a genius but they won't have enough ball runners and will leak a stack of points. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with them next year 8)
Wasn't there an article about Jennings re-signing in 1 of the papers a few weeks ago?
Yeh, he's agreed to a 5 year deal apparently, not sure if it is signed off on yet though.
Heard that Cronk won't accept money under the $400k that he's getting from the Storm, so I'm expecting maybe him and Inglis might go from the Storm.
Heard rumores Nightingale -> Rabbits O'Donnell, Finch -> England Kimmorely -> Raiders Ever seen Kalifa Fai-Fai Loa play - he does look like a strong ball runner.
IMO they have to lose two....Smith will stay (as Captain), and Slater is the big draw card so he will stay as well So you may be right there Ant
That list (until recently) was the melbourne storm shopping list for next year.
Either way should the Storm release Slater, Inglis, Cronk or Smith and they are not paid the same amount as per the contracts - Storm have to pay the difference. So really their is no sense in releasing them because it will still impact their cap. Inglis will say he is heading to Essendon AFL and Gallop suck up to him - watch
ARU might make a play for Inglis
I'd be happy with any of: Joel Romelo, Shane Neumann, Yileen Gordon, Johnathon Wright, Nick Kouparitsas, Grant Millington, Bodene Thompson, Michael Lett, Jason Nightingale, Kalifa Fai-Fai-Loa, Justin O'Neill, Bryan Norrie, Rory Kostjasyn, Taniela Tuiaki, Junior Moors, Glen Buttris, Danny Galea, David Milne, Dane Hogan, Junior Vai Vai, Wade Graham, Joseph Paulo, Frank Pritchard, Michael Jennings, Michael Gordon, Gavin Cooper Some of these, e.g. Thompson, Gordon, Vai Vai, Wright should be quite cheap - I would not have any issues with signing any of these players. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of good props on the market.
Separate names with a comma.
