Viliame Kikau re-signs with Pamfers till 2022...damn
We should have tried to sign him when he was ripping up the NYC with the Cowboys. Hopefully we're searching high and low for someone with similar attributes as it's exactly what we're lacking
Could we even talk to Kikau as he wasn't off contract until next year.
Gotta wonder with Penrith locking up a few of their young stars whether they will be OK with letting Cleary go in order to keep a better balance across their roster, especially with Luai(sp?) coming through.
Apparently Maloney will go to the ESL after 2019 allowing Penrith to keep Cleary & Luai

Really?
I hope you’re correct but I am very skeptical when it comes to recruitment retention.
Players come up on the market and we only seem to be in the hunt for fringe players or players looking for their final contract - MBye being the exception.
Other than the coaches son, what rep player or ‘in his prime’ proven first grader are we linked to?
Being a bottom feeder club it's near impossible to be able to recruit top tier players. Mbye, Reynolds, Packer and Mats I believe are just a tad below top tier but are still pretty damn good signings for where we were as a club. We aren't going to sign players like Cronk, Tedesco, Crichton like the Rorters did in a 12 month period but hopefully in the near future with a few top 8 finishes players will want to come to us
And yet somehow bottom placed Parramatta snared Blake Ferguson! I hear this being said about us all the time, yet so often the teams that are consistently below us on the ladder don't seem to have any trouble attracting the top players. Newcastle won the spoon 3 years in a row, but still managed to sign Mitchell Pearce & Kaylyn Ponga!
Because our recruitment strategy sux. Plain and simple. We are never, I repeat, never in the market for top line players.
Moses Mbye..?
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

I'd say Cleary is doing well to change the perception of the club. WTs are viewed now as a team on the up. Probably a team of triers lacking spark in one or two areas.

Moses Mbye..?
Although he appears to be turning out ok for us, I must admit I didn't really consider Mbye to be a top line player during his years at Canterbury. He was more dud than top shelf for the money they were forking out for him.

Brilliant idea.That would provide complete parity. Third party payments could then be considered not part of the cap and the Roosters could give each of their players 20 million in 3rd party for all I care as if they had to pay a market vale for someone as per your TP idea then ALL teams would operate under a salary cap/system that would provide complete parity.

It would be easier to implement than you think too.Using your example, Once Wests Tigers said they would pay $650,000 a season for TP they would need to sign a legally binding tender saying as much. Surely the Influential RLPA would be for this because it would mean more money for their players too with unlimited 3rd party agreements.
But what if Cowboys offered brooks 700k a season and the tigers could only offer him 600k due to salary cap. Brooks wants to stay with the tigers because he doesn't want to live in Townsville and for 100k a year wants to keep playing for the tigers for sentimental reasons. Your scenario would force brooks out of the tigers simply because they wouldn't be cap compliment, forcing brooks to move to a town he didn't want to be in. It takes the final decision away from the player so the RLPA wouldn't go for it.
ahh yes good point.Perhaps the club in this case the cowboys could get a 50% credit in this case $50,000(50% of $100,000 unders) that tigers got him for. So in essence it would equate to ok Cowboys you missed out on Brooks but you now have an extra $50,000 in your salary cap to get your next player.

Lets use the Canberra raiders as an example here. No players want to live in Canberra so they are forced to pay overs for players so if they find themselves losing out with a brooks scenario two or three times they would soon have cap credits that would let them get their marquee player.

We could have a week of free agency at the end of each year for all these contracts to go down just like the NFL and it would be a great T.V Spectacle.
We are talking about a club stock piling the best players from other clubs
Like the Roosters
That has to stop

To answer the above scenario
If Brooks put himself on the open market and the cowboys put in a big offer he has to be prepared to move
Otherwise the tigers would need to negotiate a deal before he goes to the open market or better that offer
Sure if a player needs to pack up and leave town he should be compensated for doing so
But only the actuall cost of that move
And my system would do that in a way that would appease all(most) parties.

With Penriff signing up forwards to long term expensive $$ contracts, plus they have secured Mansour for another couple of years to big $$ as well .. our best chance would be to get young Cleary for next season 2019 .. yes i know he is contracted till the end of 2019 .. but since when has a contract been honoured these days .. ask $unny Bill William$ or Mitchell Moses .. !!

behind the current squad of forwards who aim a 1 in 6 on average good luck...
