Kyle Flanagan’s Rooster’s exit is only days away from confirmation from the unwanted playmaker who will sign with the Bulldogs next week. The AustralianBrent Read reports.
Despite arriving at the club in late 2019, Flanagan was informed by the premieres that his services would not be required beyond this year as there is one year left for his contract with the club.

And Read told Triple M.The Bulldogs’ takeover of Scrum Flanagan on Saturday is expected in a few days.
“The latest I hear will be done with Canterbury on Monday or Tuesday,” Read said of Flanagan’s Bulldogs move.
“Next weeks, a big week, November 1st comes and the stupid season begins. I did a little bit of math yesterday and I think there are about $ 35 million worth of players up for grabs as they enter the final year of their contracts on November 1st and once that happens they can submit formal offers.
“Kyle won’t get that far, I think Kyle will be ready in Canterbury by Monday or Tuesday and the taps will move on and they will sort out some things.”
Flanagan’s Roosters Axing comes in despite the former Shark finishing in the top three of the competition in his first full season in the NRL this year.
When Flanagan arrived at the club in the off-season and was originally cast as a longtime replacement for Cooper Cronk, he had a tough season. Trent Robinson decided at some point to drop him earlier in the year.
The decision to cut the young halfback from the roosters was criticized by some of the game’s high profile figures, perhaps no more than Flanagan’s father and premier winner Shane Flanagan, who said Kyle was blinded by the harsh reputation.
“I thought he blew his ass for his freshman year at NRL this year,” he said The daily telegraph to Flanagan’s ax.
“When you play halfback with the Roosters, you get criticized sometimes.
“But I just thought it was a little unjustified.”
The legendary Halfback and the eighth Immortal Andrew Johns have meanwhile also prevailed against Flanagan’s critics.
“Go check out Johnathan Thurston when he was 20. Go and watch me when I was 20 or 21, “Johns said Broad world of sport.
“Go and watch Cooper Cronk, he came off the bench and played dummy half.
“It takes so long to master the halfback position.
“People are too tough on Kyle Flanagan and the people who are tough on him don’t know what they’re talking about.”

The Roosters will now seek to use the salary caps gained from Flanagan’s release to secure their 2019 superstar full-back and Dally M medalist James Tedesco, who is out of the contract late next year.
Read reviews Tedesco and the Roosters are about to sign a new three-year deal that could tie him to the Tricolors for the rest of his career.
However, he added that a minor financial discrepancy could prevent the two parties from proceeding as the deadline for the free agency expires on November 1st.
“I assume that he (Tedesco) will finish at the Roosters. They talk about a three-year extension worth about $ 3.3 million, “Read said.
“I think his bearings come in a little higher number than this, but I don’t expect the taps to go beyond that because that’s not Nick Politis’ way.
“If Teddy’s camp is up to push, don’t be surprised if Nick and the roosters go away as well as a gamer like him, because they don’t like being held as a ransom.
“I would expect that to be done because Teddy wants to stay and the roosters want to keep him.”
