Brad Takairangi supposedly told he can leave Parra if he gets a deal elsewhere.A big strong body that can play second row and centre.
Wouldn't say no to Takairangi, he goes good.
So you want to buy someone who can't make first grade in the side that got the wooden spoon?

Yep, Jason Taylor if memory serves me correctly.

And we still got to top up his contract for three years running
forum myth

Not a myth he sign a contract with the Tigers and Taylor did not want him The Tigers made up the rest of the money
He was signed before Taylor got here but the signing would have put us further over the cap, so JT did the only thing he could under the circumstances. He may have done things for which he could rightly be criticised but this was not one of them; it coincided with us having to offload players who were already here. let alone bring in others.

Do you ever have anything positive to say? I'm not even going to bother explaining to you why I think he would be a good signing for us. It's just not worth the effort!

He played 15 1st grade games this year including their last game of the year.

To the post above.... The Salary Cap is there, but some clubs are spending millions more than others due to the quality of their TPAS.

Roosters also have no juniors but they attract players based on their location and the fact they can pay a bit more with TPAs. So its not really even.
Well clubs are not spending millions more through TPAs, they are potentially gaining an advantage through more lucrative TPAs. They aren't spending the money, someone else is, and officially the club and TPA are supposed to be at arm's length.

Obviously I'm no fool to consider TPAs are even, but also we have no idea of the totals of the TPAs - NRL claims that teams aren't as far apart as fans might think. Hence why I believe it's a good idea to publicise player salaries and TPAs, to make it all transparent.

In terms of juniors, I agree with you and it's not a question about evenness. It's about journo comments that a big junior system makes for a more enticing club, which I think is rubbish, as proven by the Roosters.
If you believe the NRL , TPA's are at their lowest level for a long while

But I think you also have to believe in Loch Ness Monster , Bunyips , Yetis before that works

Believing in tooth fairies is more believable than what the NRL says

Just do a search I think it was in both the telegraph the Herald and Zero tackle Parramatta was smart or lucky whichever way you look at it

Below is proof that the Panthers are looking to get out of Merrin's last two years. It comes from a dude who calls himself the Masked Panther and is from a Panther's mouthpiece paper, the Western Weekender. Grubby approach

Which Panthers first grader is actually banned from entering Panthers Leagues Club? It didn’t stop him being on site last weekend.

Concerns are growing about Trent Merrin and his poor finish to the season. The 28-year-old is on big money at the Panthers but was disappointing at the back end of the year and, rumour has it, is becoming less and less focused on football. It hasn’t gone unnoticed that Merrin makes himself the centre of attention in the club’s victory song after games, despite his poor performances on the field.

Link gives more on other things which are of interest:

Those are two seperate stories you have put in your post and in your post it sounds like Merrin is the player band from the club, which is not the case.

Apologies, that was the way I read it but I see you are probably right. That aside it's still a carve up of Merrin

Yes and spent 8 weeks on the sidelines early in the season with a fractured eye socket, but don't let the facts get in the way of your argument eh Col.

Takairangi wouldn’t be the worst signing and would be better than a few on the books already but I’d be hoping for someone of a bit higher quality.

Lol you've got no idea if you don't think Takairangi would be an upgrade and he also offers versatility.
