Explained: NRL Third-Party Deals & Kalyn Ponga’s Contract

Kalyn Ponga, his father Andre, Knights and Roosters officials and the NRL salary cap auditor are in the news, so as you can guess, we’ve got a mess on our hands.

Fortunately for Footy Talk Rugby League listeners, SMH rugby league journalist Michael Chammas was on deck to explain all the inner workings and finer details.


Footy Talk Rugby League has you covered for all things rugby league, four days a week.

On Monday it’s The Players, with Wade Graham and Josh Reynolds joining veteran commentator Anthony Maroon to give a player’s perspective on the ins and outs of the game, taking the audience out onto the field and into the dressing room.

Tuesdays it’s Half-Time with Mitchell Pearce and Todd Carney where the former teammates run their expert eye over the action, breaking down the play in simple terms while having a laugh about their colourful careers. Half-Time is hosted by Adam Peacock.

From on the pitch to off it, The Journos – Michael Chammas and Danny Weidler – provide an in-depth look at the big stories, from player signings, player movement and player feuds, plus all the whispers and murmurs floating around the NRL. Adam Peacock does his best to keep Michael and Danny in check.

And on Thursdays, loveable league larrikin Aaron Woods sits down for an extended chat with the game’s prominent figures in Woodsy’s Club Tour. No areas are off limits when Woodsy sits down and has a yarn.

Every moment, every angle, four days a week on Footy Talk Rugby League.
