  • No Salary Cap in 2022! What do you do?

    Seeing as though the off season is well under way I thought it maybe interesting to put together some current "dream" teams.

    If you were in charge of the roster at the Chooks and had to put together a 17 to win the comp in 2022 who makes your team?


    Rules are:
    • There's no salary cap
    • Players will agree to come to the club and can break their current contracts to do so.
    • You can't select a player out of position. Even if they play multiple positions you need to choose them in their prefered position that they play most of the time at club level (i.e. Latrell plays FB now at club level, and Wighton is a 5/8 so neither can be picked at centre)
    • You can't select players who are rumoured to be on the verge of retirement - so no Cam Smith or Cords etc
    • Has to be a current NRL player or developmental player with any of the 16 clubs - so no union or super league players.
    • Only one player per position. So no either/or selections
    • You can only have one utility on the bench, the other 3 have to be forwards
    • Chose a coach and one Assistant

    My team is
    1. James Tedesco (c)
    2. Daniel Tupou
    3. Stephen Crichton
    4. Joey Manu
    5. Joseph Suaalii
    6. Luke Keary
    7. Nathan Cleary
    8. Payne Hass
    9. Josh Hodgson (vc)
    10. Sio Siua Taukeiaho
    11. Viliame Kikau
    12. Angus Crichton
    13. Victor Radley
    14. Dale Finucane
    15. David Fifita
    16. Jake Trbojevic
    17. Harry Grant
    Coach: Robbo Assistant: Fitzy

    I thought we already didn't have a salary cap

    Even though we have some great players, one would sign the Australian test team.

        Agreed.

          Or just dig one really deep hole and put souffs as far down as possible.

              I'm sure the OP said players can't be out of their preferred position (Turbo/Pap etc)

                    Dally M voting for player and position of the year appears to have started in The Chookpen.

                      This is hypothetical, of course, but wouldn't be great if we could have an all conquering team like some of those listed above, assuring Souffs can never win the premiership again?
                      MRR or Rabid

                      Some people believe supporting the Roosters
                      is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed
                      with that attitude. I can assure you it is
                      much, much more important than that.

                        Can’t believe how many have chosen Cleary over Keary. I’d have Keary and Munster in the halves and with Tedesco at FB the rest of the team could be any combination and it’ll do well. BTW , I’d rather have grant, korisau and/ or Verrills ahead of cook in my team

                          I would pick Keary and Munster also....but as the OP stated thats not what the hypothetical was in this thread.

                          'You can't select a player out of position. Even if they play multiple positions you need to choose them in their prefered position that they play most of the time at club level'

                            Keary did play half in 2018 and won us a premiership despite Aubusson wearing the 7 and Cronk being on the field.
