No. Suggest that to either of them and they can effectively walk straight to any other club as a free agent with a far more lucrative deal. They deserve far better than a rookie contract.

If a one year deal was on the cards just negotiate them on the senior list. Reid on contract to 2020 anyway isn’t he?

I like the idea of shifting senior players off the main list but I think that we should use our rookie spots on Dunn, Broomhead and possibly Goldsack.

These 2 struggle to get thru a Game without getting Injured and been like that for 2 Seasons at Least.

So would it be work Thinking of Putting them on our Rookie List Then?
Be horrible thing to do. What does it say to the player group?

There’s a risk another club could snare them as the next issue.

If you feel they are vulnerable career wise, then a one year contract can suffice.

There’s more than enough players to delist before you play games with real talent like Reid and Elliott.

Pretty shabby way to treat them in my view too.

This is an interesting approach to players injured.

Is this the same approach if a player wants to leave? Or do we become all aggrieved how dare they treat us this way?

Very interesting.
