“There Were About Five Clubs Chasing His Manager Last Week” | Ready On Angus Crichton

Angus Crichton’s signature is in hot demand, with multiple clubs circling the off contract back-rower after the Roosters signed David Fifita this week on a big money deal.

Brent Read revealed that the Tri-colours will have a fight on their hands to keep Crichton after the Origin star notched up a particularly impressive month of footy.

“I spoke to the Roosters this morning and they still think they can keep Angus, the issue is going to be at the moment they obviously can’t afford[him] given Dave’s[Fifita] signing they probably can’t afford to keep Angus.” said Read

“They’ve got to pay Sam Walker, he’s got a year to go on his deal at the end of this year. They’ve got to somehow find money for him. They signed a bloke named Dave Fifita on a bucket load of money.”

“He’s played so well for the past month that suddenly there’s a lot – not just the Roosters but apparently there were about five clubs chasing his manager last week.”
