Cooper, Asiata and Russell go.

Hampton, Jensen and McLean take up their player options.

The rest stay.

Jensen and Hampton have player options.
Give them the hint-wont be playing.
They'll move on.

Have contributed well the players that we will let go, club and fans thank them.

The club will have different ideas on what players they cut.
I wanted to cut players after the grand final win-have different ideas to the club

I'm guessing that when the dust or virus settles, all existing contracts will be null & void and those clubs left will be starting with a clean slate. My guess is existing contracts will take a 50% hit bar maybe 1 elite per club (ours will be lolo)

Almost all of them aren't living up to their pay cheques... except Lolo who should be on more.

There's a good chance that the NRL as a peak body won't survive this. My worry is that Murdoch is rubbing his hands whispering 'Super League'.

I think Oppa, Coops, Pere, Russell, Asiata and possibly Wright will go. I'd like to see us hold onto Wrighty though.

Great clip. I hope the club gives Sam a life membership. She's played a massive role in our success.
Though it's stood the test of time, the beginnings of that relationship smacks of Stockholm Syndrome.

Opacic and possibly Wrighty might go - Greeny screwed them over.
I think they could both end up at Melbourne. Bellamy chased Opacic pretty hard a couple of years ago and Bennett wouldn't let him go. They both seem like the solid, hard working style of player the Storm go for.

I bet they won't move on even playing reserve grade. They will be on decent money.

With the ruthless V'landys at the helm The future can be anything.

From left field. I wonder if he will get advice from some bankruptcy specialists like Korda Mentha. Declare bankruptcy or something less draconian to protect the Directors, cancel all Players and Coaches contracts and start again.

Interesting times and some pissed off Wives and Girlfriends.

If players are to take a pay cut, should there be a cut off? minimum wage 5% anything above $250k higher? it's such an uncertain time and factors drawn in
