That's great to hear that Bunjil will finish his career a Tigpie

Probably Benji will be no. 14 or in the centres to fit Reynolds in

So what you're saying is we're not going to flog the Tigers by 50 anymore? That from now on, we're going to lose because they have our kryptonite - Benjamin Marshall?

I don't want to live on this planet anymore

If Benchi rolls back into that team you really have to wonder about the future

Matt Lodge verbally agrees to a deal with the Broncos. Bringing down the reputation of the NRL even further.

On the same day that Bennett complains about the integrity of the Sharks regarding the Bird rehab. They go out and sign a bloke who followed some young ladies home telling them he was going to midterm their family.....nothing to see here!

So Rothfield has said that Matt Lodge knocked back a 3 year $1.5million dollar deal from the knights to play for minimum wage at the Broncos....nothing to see here!

He owes his victims 1.6m. If he knocked back a deal which could've paid them back for one which never could then you question how reformed he really is.

I’m just disgusted him and other violent offenders in the NRL continue to get their contracts registered

What kind of Third Party would want to sign any agreements with a player with the reputation of Matt Lodge,
particularly to the value of over $400,000 p/s, that is doing it out of the interest of their own party and not just to benefit the broncos?

Also what kind of player/person would knock back an offer over 5 times the value to perform the same role?

I need a better answer than "Matt Lodge is doing it for the love of Bennett", that doesn't wash at all.

Actually, in this case, it wouldn't surprise me if Lodge was doing that out of loyalty to Bennett. Bennett has offered other blokes with a criminal record and helped turn their life around off field in the past, and he probably is a big influence with this guy too.

So you’d turn down a factor of 5 salary increase for a pal?

Lots of interest but because GE is a mate I’ll give him a good “Buy Now” deal

Yeah, loyalty has to be a bit more of a 2 way street. Plus market value has to come into it somewhere too.

I asked this question on Reddit and apparently he has a few deals with gyms and supplement companies.

This stinks. But nothing will come of it because the NRL is worse than a joke.

Someone should ask the people he owes 1.5m to about his debt of gratitude to Wayne.

It’s the NRL, no serious questions / journalism unless it’s about your rubbish haircut or unfortunate name.
