Now that Canberra are without Josh Hodgson for 2018, and they are under cap pressure is there any players that they have that we could take off them at a decent price?
Nick Cotric?

He just re-signed the other week, so probably not on peanuts

With Josh Hodgson out for the season for the Raiders who do people think they'll chase to replace him? Try to bring Parcell back from Super League? Player swap Leilua for Rein? Or Farah to head down to Canberra? Any other options out there for them?

They might stick with them but they're both pretty poor options for front line hooker and the Raiders are going to need some spark out of dummy half given their average halves and fullback. Wighton, Austin, Sezer, Baptiste/Garvey would rival Hopate, Foran, Mbye, Lichaa for least creative spine in the comp.

Please tell me you are being serious and not taking the piss. I would love to see RTS in the team. What would we tell Tui though?
Let's make the Tigers great again!

Heard the same thing from a Tigers insider last week. Said he is not happy at The Warriors and feels his career is going backwards over there. Was told if released (which i doubt Warriors would do), then Tigers would definitely be interested.

We would be mad not to be interested. RTS and Nathan Cleary would turn our team into a premiership chance. I suspect signings of this caliber are a couple years off though.

As for Tui, he would make a gun attacking centre but not sure about his defence.
We will smash em 50+ get on.

I am not sure why there is a feeling around that we shouldn't be recruiting players when we already have others in that position. Isn't the idea of recruitment to strengthen the roster? If we sign RTS great, and as for Tui, if he plays well then he makes the team. Simple as that. No guaranteed spots, no jobs for the boys, just play consistently well and the coach will have to find you a spot in the 17.
