NRL 2020: Joseph Suaalii backflips on Rabbitohs, move to Rugby Australia, Rod Kafer, Peter FitzSimons


It’s the cross-code tug of war that’s got everyone in league and union talking about a schoolboy sensation named Joseph Suaalii.

Suaalii, still just 16, signed with the Rabbitohs last month on a reported $1.7m NRL deal spread across three years.

Then on Tuesday reports emerged that he was ready to backflip on the Bunnies for a $3m contract with Rugby Australia.

While CEO Rob Clarke, however, said that figure was inaccurate.

Whatever the exact cost of Rugby Australia’s outlay on the prodigious talent, one thing is for certain: the move has split the game in Australia down the middle.
