Roadblock in way of NRL coach swap


//

What's stopping coach swap?

It's been revealed that money is the major a hurdle in getting a coach swap done between South Sydney and the Brisbane Broncos.

News Corp reports that roughly $1 million is standing in the way of Wayne Bennett and Anthony Seibold switching teams a year earlier than proposed.

The report claims the Broncos will do everything to avoid handing over a huge payout and that there has been no formal discussion between the rival clubs.

Brisbane is the richest club in the NRL and would have no problem paying any amount of money to quicken the process of Bennett's departure and what they owe Seibold on top.

The Broncos don't want to end up in a similar situation like Penrith, who'll be paying three coaches next season.

The club is a publicly listed company and can't be seen to be throwing money away, unless Bennett asks to leave.

 

Bulldogs target Burgess twins

George and Tom Burgess are reportedly in the sights of the Belmore based club as contenders to replace Newcastle-bound prop David Klemmer.

Canterbury will be keeping a close eye on the Bennett-Sebold coach swap situation in case the Burgess brothers get squeezed out by incoming recruits.

It's said Bennett is keen to bring Broncos rising star Tevita Pangai Junior to the Rabbitohs from 2020 when his deal with the Broncos runs out.

This could potentially force at least one of the Burgess twins to leave Redfern.

Canterbury is keen on luring a big man to Belmore and also have their sights set on the likes of Martin Taupau, Addin Fonua-Blake and Dylan Napa.

Klemmer's future is likely to be decided in the coming weeks with the prop still on leave after international duties.

 

Cook attracts interest

The Rabbitohs may have to increase their offer to Damien Cook with the Eels, Tigers and Knights are all expressing an interest in signing the Souths rake.

South Sydney is looking to give him a well-deserved pay increase and lock him up long-term, given the hooker had a breakout year on a modest contract.

Cook’s wants to stay at the Rabbitohs and it is understood his management and the club are working through the finer details of a five-year $4.3 million deal beginning next season.

But the Tigers are looking for a long-term replacement for Robbie Farah, once he hangs up the boots next season.

And it’s understood new Tigers boss Michael Maguire would love the chance to have Cook on his team again.

In 2016, Cook asked for a release from his Rabbitohs contract to join the Cronulla Sharks but Maguire extended Cook’s stay at Redfern until the end of season 2019.
