With the Covid numbers in England is he actually going to play this year?

It's a rort, as is Surgess.

I have been reminded that Inglis retired, was not medically retired, and his job post football with the Rabbitohs was included in their cap.

I thought so, but I found this article from April last year saying he wasn't able to be medically retired

This story seems to suggest he was being paid the remainder of his $1.5 million contract via a job worth $300,000 a year as a "pathways manager". I suspect he's the best paid "pathways manager" in the NRL... The NRL gave the Rabbitohs $1m salary cap relief, while made them include $900,000 against their cap (I'd interpret it as three years worth of working as a pathways manager). It now appears he's not going to cost their cap anything more from here.

Based on this article they copped 500k which he was already paid and 300k for his job as a pathways manager. The cap impact for this year would only be based on what he was earning over the going rate for his role (who knows what that is).

Regardless it was a rort of the highest order.

So of he's off to Warrington does that mean this "Pathways Manager" job will be up for grabs? Have to update my CV.

Apparently they will keep it open for his return so he can continue to earn the money they owe him. Which shows how legit it is.

Well pathways don't manage themselves. Somebody has to do it while he's over there. I'll take a short term contract.

Counted in 2019 but was scratched from then on in.

With Roberts in rehab the pathways are fairly clean of debris at the moment.

To be fair, plenty of Aussies compare Vegemite to something that tastes good...
