    Our turn for some Jess Halloran hyperbole tomorrow in the newspaper. Headline says 16 Rebels poised to leave, but in the article only confirms one player has actually signed somewhere else as it stands.

    So basically they haven't signed new contracts yet, probably looked on the Wikipedia page for Super rugby transfers and did some maths....

    Andrew Deegan - Looking for game time?
    RHP - Looking for game time, has not really been getting any consistent time in the 23.
    Ryan Louwrens - Would be a big loss, would be one of the first on the list i'd resign.
    Rangi - If he loses the starting spot id would not blame him.
    Koegelenberg - Still undecided on him
    English - Best of Luck, hope they give you a life membership as a parting gift. You will always be a Rebel.
    Kellaway - Unlikely, came back to make a statement and wants to play SR and for the Wallabies
    Koroibete - Unlikely, wouldn't leave Melbourne when he switched codes and ARU can't afford to lose him.
    Jones - Best of luck, mismanaged twice in positional choices.
    Ainsley - Highlanders? Really? NZ like to take Aussie props for some reason.
    Potter - Enjoy the Hogwarts tour
    Philip - Will believe it when I see it
    Meakes - Best of luck, will kill it in that comp
    Cottrell - Same as above
    Lomani - Foreign player, not surprised.
    Magnay - Has not managed to get regular game time, think he should goto the Tahs in all honesty.

    Blows my mind some of these guys either have already or think they can get Japan contracts. They're barely Super standard.

    Phillip, Koro and Kellaway are the only three that would really annoy me if they left.

    Kellaway and Phillip feel like they are on the cusp of a Wallaby breakthrough, which surely has to count for something.

    Need Louwrens - will be pissed if he's not wallaby eligible as he should be preferred over Gordon.

    Isn't Koroibete signed for 2021? He did a 2 year extension in September 19.

    Ainsley is born, raised and schooled in Otago region. Perhaps homeward bound?

    Magnay should stay if Meakes and English are leaving - should finally get to play!

    the Rebels have a MOU with Kintesu, English played there last year in the Super off season, it is a way of defraying costs. Louwrens also played in japan last year. perhaps Deegan and RHP are going as "inter season" top ups, or perhaps its all a beat up. the only actual confirmed departure is Luke Jones back to France. it remains to be seen what the professional rugby landscape will look like next year anyway, of the above list many have contracts into 2021 and beyond.

    Rangi, Philip, Lomani, Koroibete as far as i know, also i was under the impression that both Louwrens and Deegan signed 2 year deals, but i dont know for sure. the others all expire in 2020 as far as i know

    This was my favourite bit:

    Based on? A thorough look at the books? Gool ol' journalistic instinct? I'm guessing.nothing. Nada.

    Guess they've finished white antinc RC, time to move onto the Rebels.

    Big chance that NFJ and his band of merry captains want us out, so... Halloran.

    Mortlock is on that list of captains, surely we at least have him on our side.

    Could be, but they'd be giving up the second biggest marketi in the country. No major Australian sport is stupid enough to not have a presense in Melbourne.

    Dear Rebels - please do not underestimate current circumstances. There is a serious push to shrink to greatness, hidden under a banner of "must face reality". Fake banner, but it's there.
