    Said the same thing but 500-550k 3 times on the previous page.
    He aint a elite player and shouldnt be paid 550k+
    Though every half decent player off contact seems to think they are worth the world and demand it.

    Looks like Pappali is set to sign with the Eels, 4yr/2.8m
    Not much point of keeping this thread open anymore now that he’s off the market

    Parramatta Eels sign Josh Papalii for 2014

    The Pirtek Parramatta Eels are today proud to announce the signing of Josh Papalii on a 3 year deal from the start of next season.

    A Queensland under 18s representative in 2010, Papalii went on to make his NRL debut in 2011.

    The time I have spent with the Canberra Raiders have been the best of my life. The Club and the fans have been so good to me & my family and I will always be grateful. Papalii said.

    Heading to Parramatta next season is a new and exciting challenge, they are a club on the rise and I am looking forward to being a part of what Ricky Stuart and the team up there are doing. My first priority though is playing good footy for the Raiders this year and going out on a high.

    Pirtek Parramatta Eels Chief Executive Officer Ken Edwards, believes securing the services of Papalii is a massive boost for the strategy the club has for the future.

    We have a plan at the Parramatta Eels to continue to restore pride in our jersey and once again be a dominant force in the NRL. Josh Papaliis signature puts us well on our way to doing that. He is a great fit for our brand and will be welcomed with open arms into the Blue and Gold Family.

    Head Coach Ricky Stuart excited by what his new charge can bring to his young forward pack.

    Josh is an outstanding young footballer and will bring with him all the attributes we are looking for in a player at the Parramatta Eels. We are a club building for the future and signing a young man of Joshs ability represents that.

    Gotta love those binding contracts.

    Right now, like today, junior Paulo is tipped to sign with the Eels on a 4yr deal worth 2.8mil

    Not Papali....

    It's a mixup. Although, technically my comment isn't wrong, this will be Paulo's second signing with the Eels.

    I've just never liked him as a player always seemed lazy to me, I know some guys look like they're cruzing but they're putting in but for Papali I've just always thought he's over rated and doesn't give a stuff.

    Obviously people with greater knowledge than me see the good in him, he's played a lot of rep football
