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.
Are not the Wests Tigers obliged by the NRL to fill these vacant spots by 1st June this year?

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.
You wouldn't release them. A player needs a release to sign a new contract.

A bit like that i guess it must be hard for him not being the star of the team

Ivan should offer him a 3 year contract at 650K ayear with the promise to make him a better team player

No he shouldn't. He already wanted out twice.

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.
Didn’t Auva'a beat his girlfriend....... I’d say he doesn’t fit the culture

Jamayne Isaako, He's off contract at the end of this season. He's only 21 and people are calling him a "young Israel Folau". He could be what we need, a young, fast, strong winger who uses his powerful quads to win contested catches. I doubt that the Broncos will let him go but Ivan could probably get him if he really wanted him.

Would be a great signing but like you said Brisbane will want to keep him. I did read awhile back that he mainly played fullback until he played for the Broncos so maybe that might be enough to get him out of Brisbane.

And we know Thompson can play fullback or wing.

That actually works out perfect. If we play Isaako at fullback, Thompson can move to Noffo's wing and Thompson can defend well on the wing and was scoring more tries on the wing then Noffo.

I've watched him a few times and I can't in all honesty describe him as fast. He looked pretty pedestrian agains the Storm albeit he was up against JAC and Scott. Scott is not overly quick and Isaako didn't compare well to him.

BOTH of these players should be targeted along with JAC.
Young/JAC it should e high money but short term contracts. They have the speed but we don't know if that will go with injuries.
Auva would be a huge buy.....

Were talking big money though. nothing under 400/450. Almost wonder if Mansour is worth it. He can do that good wing defense stuff and if he partners with Marsters then we have a solid flank.

If we are going to win games on defense, we can't have a winger who is a bad defender. A fence with a hole is just a decoration.
