    Even though they probably have next to no clue about what's going on some media sources are claiming that Holmes could immediately come back to the NRL if he does not land a contract with an NFL team, rather then sit out 2019 completely, but I am not sure whether that includes being waited to be drafted or not. They are either guessing or assuming that the odds are stacked against him in the first place.

    The Sharks would get first and last rights to his services but it's highly probably they'd fit him under their cap and theyre supposed to move on a player before June 30? Would be a compo transfer fee and doesn't get to play against them if they do play each other I imagine.

    Castleford fans have a rumour going that they are in talks with Sione to join Pete.
    Pat might be who they are thinking of.

    Holmes to Cowboys will happen. Even people reporting he is feeling homesick already.

    Val to rescue our season.

    Yeah the backflip was so weird. Went from definitely won’t play NRL in 2019 to now willl consider it if he doesn’t get a gig.
    The collapse of the AAF means competition will get harder but there are plenty of opportunities to make a roster with injuries and cuts etc.

    Makes me think there was too much stink at the sharks involving TPAs to hang around

    I honestly think it was just an easy escape out of Cronulla for this season and if he jagged a spot on a roster then a added bonus with potential to earn a lot more but deep down probably knows he was always going to return to Australia.

    Apparently Holmes was spotted in Dallas on a flight due to come back home to Sydney

    Holmes has been offered a 12 month contract by the Jets being their 54th man through the international pathways program. Will get plenty of chances in the preseason and even if he does not make the 53 man roster he is still going to be there for 12 months as the ‘apprentice’.

    A $68k deal with no chance of making an appearance unless upgraded to $580k and in to the 53 man squad.

    Was feeling homesick while in Sydney on over 10 times that... imagine how he is going to feel while being in USA and not even playing a second.

    He won’t last the 12 months.
