Every club has to spend 95% floor of 9.1m. That means 8.65m minimum if we have 1.4m. Available we have to spend 950 this year minimum.
still have 2 spots left so we could upgrade a development player and will have enough for a big signing
Pascoe is smart. We'll frontload a few guys contracts, buy/upgrade some low cap players and save it for RTS and NC for a premiership tilt in 2 years time.
Frontloading and backloading is what has got us into a mess in the past. Farah case in point. Rather just do it without it. Nathan Cleary is priority no 1. RTS is secondary as far as im concerned.
Oh dear, classifying frontloading and backloading as the same things. Glad you aren't running this club.

I consider them the same.

Frontloading comes back to bite you when the players contract is up for renewal but you’ve already spent the cap.

Can we please fall out of love with Tyrone Peachey, we have some size now, this is rugby league - not dwarf throwing.

In any event I don't see a rush for us to sign someone. Sounds like Sam McIntyre has been killing it at training so if he gets upgraded, good luck to him, means he's one to watch out for.

It seems likely he'll be at the Titans in 2019. Not sure where he'd really fit with us either.

Yeah I heard the titans were the favourites, I’m not sure either tbh Nelson but I like the way he plays his footy.

Gee sorry tony tiger just an opinion mate, like yours with the size issue, seems like there’s always someone that has to drop a negative whenever someone mentions a player they like.
The best players in game don’t have much size to them and I’m not saying peachey is in that circle.
The year we won the trophy we had one of the smallest packs in the comp.

Yep, never been a huge fan of Peachey. Good solid player but I reckon there may be others who would suit us better.

I see nothing in Peachey either. Versatile but not particularly good in any position.

And he’s a hog. Has cost Mansour heaps of Supercoach points.

The big issues.

Peachey isnt consistent enough. I honestly hope Ailoia goes hard this year so that hes the successor to Lawrence. A player like mcintyre could be a successor to mcquern in two years. Who knows. Halfback and a fullnack are more important at the moment.

I would love it if we secured Latrell Mitchell for this season or the future.

No prob Willow. The year we won the comp (2005) we had quick play the balls, Benji Marshall and Robbie Farah at their peak, Pat Richards that turned 4 points into 6, out-leapt everyone to score from bombs, had a monster kick-off that brought rain, Brett Hodgson as a monster attacking unit and safe as a bank in defence, Lafranchi and Gibbs as big units in the front row, and a coach that had a man fetish for Daniel Fitzhenry.
The size issue was bit exaggerated in the press, made for a good fairytale critique.

I agree with Latrell Mitchell - he has the size, power, intent and is MUMPS free.
Would serve us well!

Peachey is a great player. I like the dwarf throwing comment.

Well I've always been told
It's not the size that counts
It's how you use it
I have also been told good things come in small packages
I hope that's true
:pray:

What .....

Peachey never got the ball because of the greatest ball hog and worst ball player in Moylan

Probably thought he better hang onto it , because the next time he would get to touch it was training :lol:

Size isn't necessarily a big issue with a decent ball player , take him tomorrow to replace Suli

But he is off to the Titans unfortunately

Yeah me too, he's got good instincts. He's at his best in the middle but I don't think we can afford to carry another small forward.

Joseph Manu from Easts Is also an option, I don’t think he’s got a contract after next year,
Plays centre and back row and is behind certain starters out there.
