He's been going alright this season but in the past Maumalo has had hands like feet.
Yah, Maumalo has been shocking in the past.

What's the story with Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad? Lots of hype around him when he debuted, but doesn't seem like there's room for him in first grade at the Warriors. No idea how he's going form wise, but he looked like he had plenty of natural ability when he has played firsts.

Could be looked at as a long-term fullback.
That would be the remake. In the original the role played by Charnze was played by a bloke named Tui

we must be front loading a lot of contracts this year- this squat is no where close to $9M i'd say
OK, so someone explain to me what happens if a player leaves after a front loaded contract?

Does that mean they can say "well tigers front loaded me with 500K this season. Next season is 80K.... But Panthers will offer me 300K if I sign now for next season?"

We all know contracts can be broken. Just hoping front loaded players will show some loyalty.

Drinkwater released to ESL. That will screw up our ISP side big time. Might make Gamble take on the lead role though.

This guy just doesn't seem to know what he wants to do. Players here for a year, goes to ESL for a year, comes back for 3 months, goes back to ESL for 9 months

You wouldn't think the club would agree to upgrade them unless the player agrred to extend.

Even though as you said contracts don't mean much these days

I have been pretty comfortable since the start of this season's rounds in thinking that we had good depth in our squad. Now, after recent repeated injuries to key players (especially injuries that are over 4 weeks in duration), I am not so sure.
Imagine if we had a major injury right now to any of our back 3, or one of our halves - sure there is Tui (who also is carrying a niggle), but in my view Tui is way off his best, or Fonua, maybe he could do a job. What about if another one of our best forwards was lost to injury? I think we would certainly notice a drop in quality if any of this happened.
In my mind this makes the filling of our maximum 30 man squad a priority, especially in the outside backs.

Where is the signing was coming that ink was telling us about
I believe it was entirely a sarcastic comment and not a real signing.
So i last visited this thread on page 618 and still no sign of the game changer.. :cry: :cry:

Only in NSW cup he wasnt in the top 39. Id say it was more a case of opportunity for Drinkwater then it was us moving him along especially since we required first abd last rights to get him back

He wants to play top grade, but pretty sure his last SL club was relegated and thus he returned this season.

It may be time for the club to seriously look at filling couple of vacant spots particularly if we have another loss this week.

Our depth is slowly being tested and it will only get worse as this season rolls on.

i wouldnt mind offering Young Tonumaipea or Kirosome Auva'a contracts,both are not seeing regular first grade,Tonumaipea has been in the storm system for quite a while and is solid in attack and defence,but has chambers and scott ahead of him atm,while Auva'a is strong,runs hard at the line and would be a good addition as well.Both are centres but can play on the wing also.

really getting sick of the club releasing players, and i know we had to in the two centres, but drinkwater he was playing so well and was a great back up. so we release these players get we get no one in, we will run out of players at this rate.

Drinkwater was outside the top 30 and wouldn’t have be eligible for top grade unless we upgraded his contract.

At the moment, I'm happy to trust in IC's player retention and release policy.
