The Rabbitohs face the prospect of losing the gun outside of Dane Gagai The daily telegraph Phil Rothfield reports that “half a dozen” clubs are keen on the Queensland Origin star.
Gagai will no longer have a contract as of 2022 and beyond and can speak to rivals.
Rothfield says the cap is already filled with big money players – and the club will announce Latrell Mitchell’s extension – which means the Bunnies will have to face a fight to keep Gagai.
“Go through their list and I’ll give you some players who are really big bucks: Damien Cook; Adam Reynolds; Cameron Murray; Cody Walker and Jai Arrow just joined the club for $ 700.00 per year, ”said Rothfield Big sports breakfast.
“You could probably add Campbell Graham and Tom Burgess to that list of players with more than $ 500,000 and in the next week or two they’ll be getting a new three-year deal for Latrell Mitchell worth $ 800,000 to $ 850,000 per season announce.
“That leaves a man named Dane Gagai – who was the best player on the field in Adelaide – without a contract and I think they’ll have to fight to keep it because a lot of money clubs are looking to sign it . ”
The 29-year-old was arguably the best player on the field when the Origin series kicked off last Wednesday and his form undoubtedly caught the attention of rivals. With 203 NRL games, 14 Origin appearances and five Tests for Australia, Gagai is quick to get caught if South Sydney can’t offer him a new deal that’s worth it.
If the Rabbitohs lose Gagai, it will be the second player to slip through their hands due to cap pressure after reports that Corey Allan could be released due to cap pressure.

However, the Broncos are committed to securing Drinkwater’s services, reports The Courier Mail.
Drinking water is no longer contracted by the end of 2021, and the Broncos are lacking options in their spine.
Darius Boyd’s resignation, Jack Bird’s move to the Dragons and the departure of Sean O’Sullivan to the Warriors mean there are plenty of seats available for Drinkwater.
