Could Cronulla’s Bronson Xerri be heading the Roosters?

The Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield fuelled speculation with a photo from social media featuring Xerri and best mate and new Sydney Rooster Kyle Flanagan on a jest ski in Port Hacking.

Flanagan admitted he would love to team up with Xerri some day despite the 19-year old being contracted to the Sharks until the end of 2021.

“We’re best mates, I just had that Sea-Doo for the weekend,” Flanagan told The Daily Telegraph of that photo.

“Uncle Buzz got us good.

“We’re childhood mates, it’s our dream to play footy together but he’s on contract there at the Sharks but if we can play together that would be an absolute dream for both of our families as well.”


  1. Well if photos are an indication what does it tell us about Latrell Mitchell with 5 Souths mates in pics all over the media past few weeks?

  2. So 21, who is on your wishlist to join Souths when the Burgess money is freed up and who are Souths looking at that you do not agree with signing?
    Souths have a had a few go, they must have a decent war chest.

  3. I once had a photo taken of me with two porn stars at Sexpo.

    Doesn’t mean I am going to be in porno movies.

    Because he was pictured with a mate who plays at a different club doesn’t mean he is going to join that club.

    Journalism at it’s finest.

  4. Christmas is always a lean time for NRL news so the journo’s make fake news. Anyway it’s a story from Rothfield, who believes him?
    Merry Christmas Everyone.

    “So 21, who is on your wishlist to join Souths”

    LM, Arrow, JAC will do thanks for asking.

  6. I thought after Souths 2014 victory that they had the makings of a dynasty.
    Not sure where it went wrong.
    Its so hard to back up nowadays.

  7. Didn’t ask them mate but they did tell me about that time they spent in the spa bath with screamingeagle. They said that’s where you got the name from. Something about it being your favourite position….

  8. Sounds like you missed your big chance Kev. Should”ve hit em up for a start & If Flanno Jr. dreams of playing with Xerri again, I guess he had better come back to the Sharks after his stint at the Roosters.

    “Xerri wont be going to the sombreros but possibly Kyle Turner being sought.”

    Roosters will never purchase a dud like Turner, who has been sacked by the transit.lounge revolving door rabbits.

    Roosters have plenty of backrowers 10 times better than this flop.
    Cordner, Crichton, Aubusson, Radley, Butcher, Liu, Tupounua, Faamausili, etc. Turner is certainly no centre, to slow and predictable.

    The Roosters have got enough centres if Latrell does not want to fight for an extension at the Roosters with Manu, Smith, Morris, Aubusson etc.

    However I have it on good authority that Latrell Mitchell has passion for the Roosters and will prove he is worthy of an extension, playing in the Red White and Blue next season 100% guaranteed.
