Off-contract at the end of the 2011 season, but feeling good at the moment, Ryles will have around 6-8 weeks to show Roosters coach Brian Smith that he can handle another year at the club.
“I’m keen to at the moment,” Ryles said at a Roosters recovery session yesterday when asked if he wanted to play on.
” I’ve always had a bit of a deal with Smithy that if I’m feeling OK and he thinks I’m looking OK, then we can sit down and take a look at playing next year.”
Ryles will now sit down with Smith and Stephen Noyce, Roosters boss, as they discuss his future beyond this season.
“We said before I even signed here that the third year was a time when we’d look at our options,” Ryles said.
“We’ll wait and see what happens. The next 6-8 weeks I imagine something will happen and we’ll know either way.”
