Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

The Dogs will have to pay about half for any player they try to offload. Or else they're stuck with a bunch of overpaid nufties. Even if they pay Mbye 400k a year, they're saving 500k, which could be 3-4 new depth signings. A massive win for them.

They son't have a choice. They're already and no club will pay full market rates for anyone that isn't an elite player.

Why the hell would we give the Dogs anything...stuff them with a pineapple...

Our Cap management finally has us in a position of some power in the player market...bugger helping out other Clubs who have rooted theirs...the recruitment team seems to know what they are doing and what a players worth is ..if the player doesn't want to come here for that fine...next..one of the things I like about Ivan's philosophy

BTW....French has his own thread guys I don't know why but he does...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

I think Moses is stuck at Parra for a while
Not sure when his contract runs out
The only club with money who might be chasing a half could be Canberra

As for clubs not wanting to contribute money for a player leaving their club
How about this

Eg Moses Mbye on $900000 next year
We give the Bulldogs Tui for $600000 (value)
And pay $300000 towards Mbyes contract with us
Therefore Mbye will costs the Tigers around $650000 a year till his contract runs out with the dogs

On Paper the Bulldogs save $300000 a year get Tui and save face with their supporters

Works for me

Cant see any other way out for the Dogs
We don't have to give up anyone.

The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that French’s management have approached rival clubs about their needs for a fullback. Gold Coast, North Queensland and the Wests Tigersare all clubs who are thin in the defensive position and may be interested in his services.

French debuted for Parramatta in 2016 and has made 37 NRL appearances, scoring 31 tries.

The Eels began this season with premiership aspirations, but are currently dwindling at the bottom of the ladder, which has left the club needing to make key decisions on their list and a potential makeover in need.

Hayne and Norman have done little this season to warrant a contract extension, while Mitchell Moses would likely be granted a release if he desired so. Hayne has yet to repay the Eels for the $500,000 gamble they took on him.

Someone pointed out earlier that this was taken out of context and the original story referred to Norman as the player that Parra would not stand in the way of should he want a release.

David Riccio on radio this afternoon suggested if Norman was released by Parra then the Dogs was his likely destination . But they’d have to offload someone like MBye to free up enough cash to make it work .

That would leave the Dogs with
7 Foran
6 Norman
1 Hopoate

The injury to J Morris would maybe change their minds on that.

He is supposedly out for 2 months than have hoppa move to fullback would leave them pretty short on the centres

The suggestion was for 2019 not this year..

Neither Morris will be at the Dogs next year..

I would be happy to have Norman as a ball playing fullback with us. Also great back up for halves.

Parra have blown their budget on Kleenex.
They were close to securing a TPA with Kimberly Clarke but it fell through when they found out many Mitch used every game.

Wayne Bennett couldn’t get rid of Norman quick enough, his toxic personality didn’t suit the Donkeys.

Moses and Gutherson is a much better halves combo for the Eels, Sucks that they worked it out.

No to Norman.

No to French.

No to any deal with the Bulldogs.

and yes to leaving Tui Lolohea right where he is.
Its an opinion!

Mitch is just a Magnet for drama and to High maintenance
Now it's Parras turn to deal with the dramas

I think part of parras problem this year is that Moses is calling the shots on the field and i dont think he is the kind of player that can get or demand respect from his peers

What do the Tigers lack at the moment? Yep, several things, but the main commodity missing is speed and French has a lot of it. It's impossible to know what's really going on at Parra. We hear that there's a problem with the culture over there and we can't be surprised with prima donnas like Hayne and Moses or party boys like Norman in their camp... The point is, is that French's lack of form is probably a symptom of the Eels woeful lack of cohesion. He is a talent and, if harnessed properly by Cleary, could become a game breaker for us. At the right price, I would snap him up.
