NRL: Robinson cools Haas rumours

Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has dismissed suggestions his side will be in the hunt to sign Payne Haas should the Brisbane Broncos forward become available.

The Roosters are sitting seventh on the ladder so far this season after winning six of the opening 11 games and they will be hoping to push into the top four.

Haas linked with Roosters

Haas is the kind of player who would improve the Roosters and they have been heavily linked with him for some time.

The 22-year-old would be open to a switch to the Bondi club after requesting to leave the Broncos following a row over his contract situation.

The New South Wales State of Origin star is after an upgrade on his $800,000 a year deal that is due to run until the end of 2024. Brisbane have ruled that out and say he will not be granted the early release he is after either.

Robinson has been quizzed about whether the Roosters would be interested and he has flatly denied it.

Robinson rules out move

“It’s just another week with another player being linked to our club. It keeps getting put out there but it’s got nothing to do with us,” Robinson told reporters.

“It’s obviously a dispute for them up there to deal with. Changing focus on to another club or our club, it doesn’t need to be brought up because there’s nothing to it.

“That’s obviously what they’re trying to do. It’s quite insignificant to what we’re trying to do week to week.”
