His value may just have increased by $50,000 a year.
Manly’s Tony Williams yesterday became Australia’s latest Kangaroo – and selection may mean he is forced out of Brookvale.
With Manly already under salary cap pressure, Williams’ asking price jumped significantly at 11.45am yesterday when he was named in Australia’s 24-man touring squad.
Williams is officially off-contract – and could now command a deal worth about $250,000 a year.
There were suggestions last night that the Cronulla Sharks were poised to make Williams an offer.
Once an inconsistent first grader, Williams has become a dynamo and helped inspire Manly to Sunday’s grand-final win over the Warriors.
The Sea Eagles will shortly announce that veteran Joe Galuvao has signed a new two year contract with the club.
