I think technically she just has to be in the country when a decision is made on granting her citizenship, so I wonder if there is a way to wrangle it.Not when his main focus is staying in Australia for another year so his partner can become a citizen mate.
Depends on timing of when she becomes eligible, if that's like March or something then could be approved at any stage during NRL season.
I know an athlete had one processed in like 6 weeks recently so he could rep Australia although in this instance she is not the athlete
Honestly, I don't hate it. Touch base with Catalans to let them know we would be happy to release the moment her citizenship is granted if the timing for that could be favourable.Sign him for a year on 200k. Tell the media it was 600k. Everyone happy.
Have to be careful with that, can still count against cap if you don't do it in the right way (ie if it is seen as incentive to sign for less now)Fitz will be well aware of the chooks (speculation of course, no proof) approach to this sort of thing.
Wade wants another year at $500k. Give him another year at $300k and add the $200k shortfall to his club role salary package post career.
