Payne Haas and Khoder Nasser

Agent Haas under fire through 10:30 e-mail, radio silence … but who is actually “pulling the strings”?

The Payne Haas saga has calmed down for now, but the debate continues about how the superstar prop will negotiate a contract with Brisbane – and who is really “pulling the strings”.

Haas and his manager, Tyran Smith, dropped the bomb by demanding an immediate release from his contract with the Broncos as the 22-year-old 22-year-old seeks to improve his contract to $ 800,000 a year.

The club rejected the request and the parties have now agreed to postpone further negotiations until the end of the season.

Veteran Daily Telegraph Journalist Phil Rothfield warned that “this will happen again” when discussing the situation NRL 360 on Wednesday night and also took aim at Haas’s agent.

“I’ll tell you what I’m really disappointed with … this colleague Tyrant Smith, who allegedly cares for Payne Haas, wasn’t seen from Nobbys,” Rothfield said.

“It was he who sent an e-mail at 22:30 requesting his immediate release, having not spoken to him before. Since then, every member of the media has tried to contact him. “

Braith Anasta told Rothfield whether Khoder Nasser, who was no longer a registered NRL agent, was actually managing Haas’s solution.

“Khoder undoubtedly (pulls the strings) because Payne Haas has admitted that Sonny Bill Williams is involved in his advice, so if Sonny Bill is involved, Khoder is involved,” Rothfield said.

“But the bottom line is that we can only deal with paperwork. Khoder is not a registered manager, his registered manager is Tryan Smith.

“His (Smith’s) job is to take care of the player and not put him in a position where he was beaten by 30,000 last night.

“He told one reporter … the soft side of the story, but he doesn’t pick up the phone and doesn’t explain to anyone why he left the player in the position he holds.”

Anasta stepped in to defend Smith.

“I think he’s a great agent.” I know him well … I see him around Coogee, he trains all the little kids, he takes care of the young boys.

“… I heard Khoder was behind it.”

The panel also discussed whether Haas had to take responsibility for the reaction, regardless of who actually advised him.

“The player must take some responsibility. You can’t say it’s all up to the agent, “said Brent Read.

“I would be amazed if he sent it (e-mail) without Payne Haas knowing.” Payne Haas allowed it to happen. “

Paul Kent added: “In many of these situations, players often lose the fact that the agent works for them, all too often the agent tells them what to do, how to behave and what happens, and they just go. along with the belief that the agent knows ..

“In this case, the agent has a well-thought-out tactic to agitate and tease the Broncos to the point where they could just go ‘you know what, you’re not worth it.'”
