All Black Scrum Half interested in the Roosters


Recommended Posts


A former Rugby League player returning to league whilst still in his 20s. An exciting recruitment. I see it lasting 2021 on a short contract only before returning to Union for 2022.

very possibly but its more the profile of the player and the fact it is getting coverage. Sonny Bill was always a league player as was burgess where as this is a "union player" in most eyes. 

I dont doubt his idea is to get some short term gain before heading back for 2023 but it does lift the profile of league potentially

TJ Perenara may well just be trying to get a better contract but he is a high profile All Black talking about his interest in a move to the NRL... 

The cross code thread has been running coming up to 2 weeks. Surprised that the Beeb have taken so long. Must be contract negotiation season.

He’s not a former RL player to the best of my knowledge and he’s 29. I think both parties accept and have acknowledged that it would only be a short-term deal.

Quite a lot actually seen as though he was a superstar of the NRL and former Roosters player. Not to mention a world class union player and former Allblack.

His contract with NZRU is up his agent is doing the usual negotiating tactic of using printouts from the Totalrl dot com forums to drive up the price. 

"What's this about a European Super League with teams in Belgrade and Valencia?"
"Whoops sorry wrong thread"

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

I highly doubt a thread on a UK RL message board is going to impact his contract negotiations ..

Waste of money (It will be) whatever he costs it will barely put anyone extra on the gate after 1 match.

Money is best spent on juniors

Roosters want a quick fix with the sudden retirement of hooker Jake friend. Plus They already have some outstanding young talent coming through for the future.

Any chance of moving this cross code speculation discussion to the Cross Code forum?

it’s an article about a potential Roosters signing. It’s a league story
