Anasta calls for better deal for loyal players

4:46 pm on 16 July 2010

The Sydney Roosters skipper Braith Anasta has called on the National Rugby League to introduce a salary cap allowance that would reward players for loyal service to their club.

Anasta says a player like Anthony Minichello who's been at the club for 11 years should be rewarded for long service.

Minchello has to decide on his future in coming weeks.

The NRL has been discussing increasing the salary cap concession, which currently stands at $100,000, for players who have played a certain number of years for a club.

However they have yet to reveal when or how the change may be implemented.
