If Burton was signed or anyone actually wouldnt they release it just so that it could help them sign other players?
The more quality players they sign the better the team’s prospects making ithe bulldogs a good team to play for

Burton and the Dogs have agreed to terms for 2022 but delayed by Penrith playing hardball with a release for 2021.

Private source.

The good news is the most important player on the list is Burton and he seems to be confirmed by everyone
Naden and Chricton seem to be conflicting. While I would love it to be Chricton I have a feeling it will be Naden
The Leniu rumour came out of nowhere and would be awesome
The Corey Allan rumour makes me want to vomit so please God let it be fake news
Hopefully ApexCedar is on the money

What a team we're going to field ! Really hope he gets released for 2021

He's behind Luai and Cleary anyway

Really hope all the rumours about Burton are true. There's a lot of smoke and not just on the kennel. Would be fucked up to see him wasted in Penrith reserves next year and earning probably less than half of what he could playing NRL for us. Penrith owe us a big favour anyway (DWZ) and should repay that gift with an early release for Burton.

If/when we do get him, it could take us from having the worst halves to having some of the best over the next few years. We need to do everything possible to make it next year.

Heard on the Today show that Cricthton will sign a lucrative 3 year extension with Penrith.

The trouble with rumours is that its easy enough to make one up. If it then comes true then that person claims he always knew, and that he has the inside scoop. Just because you guess and get it right, doesnt mean you "knew".

from smh yesterday

The Panthers may also struggle to keep young prop Spencer Leniu, who is off contract at the end of the year. Penrith offered him a two-year extension before the finals, but at least four clubs have since expressed interest in his services for 2022, including Trent Barrett at the Bulldogs.
