Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

My first thought when I read this as well. Also why would an NRL club risk signing him? He already left one contract early to return to the U.K. so why wouldn’t there be a risk he’d do the same again?

Why should any NRL side want to sign him in any case the way he has been playing all this season??

Been told today by his Mother that it’s a load of nonsense!
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Lam won’t be here next year, so apart from the next 3-6 games why would Bateman be bothered

The team didn't come across as divided from the coaching staff against Cas.

Bateman is going nowhere. not too sure where this rumour came from.

That's what he's told the club anyway.

His girlfriend has put a post on social media stating that it’s totally untrue about what has been said and no there has been no secret wedding
