    Didn’t J Moz say one of the big reasons he went to Cronulla was to win a comp? Guess that didn’t work out too well.

    He should ask the NRL who's going to win the premiership this year, and join that team. He deserves a premiership!

    Morris was really good last season (consistent, reliable). He is only a short term option so I can see why they signed Ramien. They also thought they'd be able to move Dugan on.

    So this is not “a financial thing” from J Moz huh isn’t it funny how the Rorters can find the funds to sign a representative centre to replace an up and comer? Billy Smith I’m assuming would be on peanuts compared to Josh Morris! Do the math, I mean J Moz isn’t on exactly chump change he is a former rep player which means his contract is worth upwards of 500k plus per season, how on Earth do the Roosters find that kind of coin to sign a last minute rep player??? Begs the question...

    Of course it's meant to mean something, however playing in reserve grade is part of ones first grade contract. The way I see it, the Sharks are not holding up their end of the deal by having him play park footy. He's filthy because of that.

    Yeah he's had some injuries, but is one of the best in the game. He won a GF at 33 - not many wingers can say they've achieved that.

    According to reports, he has had a sook because they signed younger centres without consulting him.

    Told you he is just another bitch trying to break his contract.

    And I don't disagree. However, there are many other young prospects, that I'd choose over any of the twins.

    can you blame him for wanting to get away from the Sharts? probably wasn't his finest moment signing with them

    His fault for going to them in the first place bro.

    I wouldn't sign with the Sharts to win a GF.

    That GF "win" was a token from the nrlol

    Yes a contract should mean something. It would be hard to say, however, that Josh's contract is without meaning.

    Depending on how popular Josh is amongst the wider community of NRL players, this could back-fire badly for the Sharks. Certainly if I was a club going up against the Sharks for the signature of a decent player I'd be looking for a way to point out how they have treated some of their players over the last 10 years.

    On another note, does Ramien have any fans left? Had a big sook at Knights after taking up a big contract there, now back at Sharks squeezing other players out.

    Oh I don't disagree! a few years ago it would have been a good place to go... but they seem to be falling back into their old ways.. letting young Flanno walk was a dumb as shit move... and why they are persisting with Johnson and Moylan baffles me.. we all know that those styles of players aren't a huge threat to the best defensive teams of today

    I have the perfect solution to the Sharks Salary Cap issues, let us sign Xerri. Simple, 4 problems solved at once, JMoz can continue at centre for the Sharks, their Salary Cap problems are gone and we get Xerri. Plus best of all the Chooks miss out. Sounds like wins all round.

    Go Dogs
