Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock , November 26, 1939) is a singer, songwriter, and actress. Originally from the United States, she became a Swiss citizen in 2013.

The 2019 NRL grand final coverage closed with a shot of a microphone and Simply The Best playing over the top of the coverage.

It was a none too subtle hint that Tina Turner is on her way back – or at least the game’s greatest anthem was. The idea is a great one – bring the tune back 30 years after it enjoyed a league life.But the talk around Turner has gone quiet.

This column has been told the reason for this is the $1million price tag that Turner or her management has placed on the deal. There is a view from the NRL that they could get Taylor Swift for that kind of money – but the sentiment Turner would bring with her would obviously not be part of the price.

The NRL have confirmed that they are still in talks with her management – and they didn’t deny the $1million asking price. The word out of the NRL is that they ‘‘won’t be breaking the bank” to do the deal. In other words, Turner won’t get what she wants or anything close.

The NRL is planning to stick to its marketing budget.

If the NRL paid near $500,000 for Simply The Best it would be a massive win for Turner’s camp, but I’ve been told the NRL consider even that figure too much. I asked the NRL for comment but they won’t talk on the record at the moment because the deal is still being discussed. They do say though that they picked up Bon Jovi’s This is Our House for an estimated $250,000.

Turner’s agent knows there is a desire for her to be “the voice” of league again and they know there has been hype surrounding a potential return. That puts pressure on the NRL to deliver.

The issue with Turner is she now lives in Switzerland and is in poor health. The NRL are being told she would not sign any deal with performances. The NRL would only get the rights to use the song for the promotion of the competition. There is also talk of additional fees for the broadcasters if they want to use the song to promote the coverage or any shows they have. It’s unclear if the fee that is being charged would allow another performer – Jimmy Barnes has been mentioned to me, as has Jessica Mauboy – to perform the league anthem on grand final day.

Having lived and reported through the Simply The Best era, romantic and nostalgic league fans would love to revisit the days of Tina Turner, but you need to respect the NRL for not being railroaded.

Townsville ain’t big enough for both of these Cowboys

Valentine Holmes is going to be asked some tough questions by his agent Chris Orr in New York in coming days.

Early next week Latrell Mitchell will be in Townsville meeting with the Cowboys, a team heavily linked to bringing Holmes back to the NRL. Only one of them can be a Cowboy.

It would take players being moved on for the club to fit both in. That is highly unlikely.

Mitchell has been told that Johnathan Thurston will meet him at the airport to show him around. You couldn’t ask for a better person to be a tour guide.

Mitchell will then have a few days off further north to think about what he is going to do.Mitchell has told the Cowboys he has liked Townsville on the times he has made the trip there with the Roosters. He says it has a similar feel to Taree. He likes fishing as well, and there is plenty of that on offer.

The Cowboys want to find out what is motivating Mitchell . . . where his head is at. They are flattered that a player of his ilk is interested in them.

Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant tie the knot

  Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant tie the knot Married At First Sight’s Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant tied the knot in Sydney on Saturday, 16th of November. The reality TV couple's nuptials will be shown in a special event episode of A Current Affair. Married At First Sight lovebirds Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant are officially married! The pair tied the knot, for the second time, in Sydney on Sunday, November 17. The happy couple met at the altar while filming MAFS in September 2018. One year later, and seven months after the season wrapped, the pair have wed for real.

Before Tina Turner , rugby league advertisements effectively consisted of Rex Mossop ordering Next year? Tina again, this time with Simply The Best, an apt anthem for the “greatest game of all”. Despite more ructions than a particularly dramatic and blood-soaked soap opera written, directed and

Mitchell returned to Sydney yesterday and the idea is that he will meet the Tigers shortly. I’ve been told the Tigers will offer a four-year, back-ended deal – $800,000 for 2020, $900,000 for 2021, $1million for 2022 and $1.1million for 2023.

The Cowboys also have that sort of money, but they had it put aside for Holmes.

Orr is going to present his client with an outline of where his finances are at and where they are going. It may be the reality check he needs to make his mind up to return to the NRL.

Under his NFL deal, Holmes doesn’t get paid between December and May. Holmes is costing himself plenty of money by not playing in the NRL, and that is going to be pointed out to him.

The Cowboys are of the view that Holmes will come home to North Queensland if he returns to the NRL. They won’t say that publicly though. Of course, if the Jets suddenly offered Holmes a playing deal he would snap that up. It may be why Mitchell is in the picture.

Over to you, Todd

The David Fifita case will be a genuine test of Todd Greenberg’s much-promised tough stand against player misbehaviour.

It was only a fortnight ago that this column said Greenberg’s warnings and the ‘‘no fault’’ stand down policy were having little effect.

We’ve already had a player charged with a stabbing, a player spend time behind bars for an alleged assault in Bali and a wild melee involving Melbourne’s Nelson Asofa-Solomona, also in Bali.

The perception in club land is that Greenberg used a lettuce leaf to punish Asofa-Solomona, who will not miss a single game for the Storm despite his punching spree going viral and seriously damaging the code’s image. It was brilliant spin from the Storm, who painted a picture of Asofa-Solomona simply coming to the aid of teammate Suliasi Vunivalu. Now Greenberg has to figure out the punishment for Fifita.

The integrity unit have interviewed Fifita and Broncos officials. Naturally, Brisbane have started their public relations campaign, telling journalists Fifita was simply naive and skylarking and shouldn’t receive any further penalty than the days he spent behind bars.

If Greenberg and the integrity unit swallow that, they will be setting a dangerous precedent.Given his promise of dire consequences for off-field offenders, Greenberg has to take the matter out of the Broncos hands and bring down a sanction himself. And a strong one.

Greenberg was ambushed with questions about Fifita when he tried to launch next year’s Magic Round in Brisbane this week. He looked fed up.

But the time for tough words and exasperation is gone. If Greenberg doesn’t deliver on his threat and bring down a hefty penalty, the NRL will deserve any backlash from sponsors and fans.

He is likely to return to the man he put his trust in at Roosters: Keegan Smith, son of Brian. Keegan’s dietary advice and training techniques were central to the success Williams had at the Roosters.

Souths on semi trail

This game throws up some great rumours, and another one came my way this week.

A South Sydney backer is trying to bring Semi Radradra to Redfern. That is a fact.

Whether Souths are directly involved or involved at all is unclear. Semi was recently linked with the Bulldogs. Regardless there will be denials all round. But I’ve been told a meeting took place between him and a backer recently and that a return was discussed.

There is another winger being linked to Redfern too – Josh Addo-Carr. He has two years left on his Storm contract. All of this may be why the Rabbitohs are distancing themselves from talk of signing Latrell Mitchell. Souths did not return calls for comment.

Dog of a decision

The Bulldogs have run their eye over the prospects that have been thrown up as potential replacements for Kieran Foran.

Aidan Sezer, Josh Reynolds (both Bulldogs juniors) and others have been linked with the club.Word is none of the players have the exact qualities the club is looking for, but with Foran almost certainly out for the year, they may need to compromise their vision.

Cordner torn

Boyd Cordner is a proud Taree man who grew up playing for the Old Bar Pirates. To say he is devasted by the bushfires in the area is an understatement.

“The fires hit on the day he was due to fly out,” Cordner’s father Chris said. “He rang me very concerned and said ‘dad, I’m coming home to help’. He said ‘I can postpone the trip’. He was genuine in what he was saying. But I told him he had to go. He was very torn.”

Boyd is in New York with his partner Gemma Barge on a well-deserved break. Knowing Cordner, he will do what he can for the community when he returns home.

“I got to see the bravery of those fighting the fires,’’ Chris Cordner said. ‘‘I know how tough footy players are, but these people are on another level.

‘‘I was fortunate where many others were not. My home at Wallabi Point is covered in the fire retardant. I could have shaken hands with the pilots dumping water, they were that close. We are the very lucky ones.’’

On that note, it was great to see Latrell Mitchell helping his local community in the same area during the week.
