    Rumours about Cooper Cronk's potential move to the Roosters are beginning to gain ground and the Tricolours now reportedly sit in the box seat to snare his services.

    Despite Blues superstar James Tedesco joining the club in 2018 on a multi-million dollar contract, the Roosters reportedly have $800,000 left in their piggy bank, and with third party agreements, they could conjure up enough cash to make for a respectable offer to Cronk.

    Poor buggers ... :)

    Cooper Cronk’s availability has the Roosters in dire straits, forcing them to apply for a cap concession on money
    .

    With the club already overburdened with elite talent, the halfback’s free agency has left them no choice but to seek relief from the NRL in order to continue stockpiling blue-chip commodities.

    The move comes after they approached league bosses to discuss the possibility of signing the star halfback, only to be told there was a salary cap in place.

    The Roosters believe the salary cap could unfairly disadvantage their negotiations with Cronk, particularly the way it caps salaries.

    As a result of the unforeseen development, the club has applied for a modest 100 per cent concession on wage spending to help make ends meet.

    The Roosters believe exempting salaries from their cap will not only prevent the tragedy of Cronk playing somewhere he’s genuinely needed, it will also reduce the risk of undisclosed payments and getting caught.

    Rival clubs were stunned by the club’s request, especially after the historic agreement recently struck that would see players paid the highest declared income in the game’s history.

    While still awaiting ratification, all 16 CEOs – including from the Roosters – pledged to pretend player salaries would remain capped at $9.4 million from next season.

    However, the Roosters remain confident of securing Cronk’s signature should their request be rebuffed.

    They believe they can compile a competitive deal by supplementing a base contract with a barrage of lucrative third-party agreements.

    This would see the representative playmaker signed for $25,000 per annum and his name changed permanently to ‘City Ford Cronk’.

    The Sydney Roosters have today announced the signing of Cooper Cronk on a two-year deal for seasons 2018 and 2019.

    33 year-old Cronk is a two-time Dally M Player of the Year medalist and has played 323 first grade games since making his NRL debut with the Melbourne Storm in 2004.

    So - allowing Pearce to go to Newcastle would mean the Plane may land in Bondi ... :)

    Cronk is a top buy - but how will he go at the Chooks ?

    He won't have Smith to help organise or run - he won't have Billy steaming about behind and running onto kicks - he won't have Bellamy scheming the moves and tactics.

    Will he really lift them more than Pearce did ?
