I'm going to suggest it is extremely unlikely Rona will be here next year. I wouldn't be leaving the porch light on...
So to me that's code for 'Rona has signed with the Sharks!'

I think you're reading much into that! I doubt he'll play league next year. That's a personal opinion.

Thanks Yoss but this is what I don't get - each team needs to spend 95% of the cap which is estimated to be $9.4m in 2018. That means a spend of $8.93 million.

Whilst our squad is much more balanced, surely we aren't spending that money? Can only imagine we must be front loading some contracts to attract some big fish for the 2019 season.

I don't think that there are any left unless we go to union and I think it'll be hard to get anyone from union as they probably get paid more money.

Thanks for the updates though.

Keep in mind there is a minimum salary. So 5 blokes on minimum wage is 500k.

600k under the new deal as min is 120k.

What Cleary has done though is tried to build a consistent squad so player 30 is much closer to player 1 then the current squad which fell away massively after the top 20 - so we are spending less at the top end but more across the board which I like because when you have injuries you don't go to a Lovett or a Joel Edwards or when you loose a centre you don't have an 18yr old as your only choice. Instead of Littlejohn you have Benji Marshall as your backup in the halves. Not only injuries but it means you can work the team harder and risk some injuries because your depth is great, it means you dont rush blokes back from injury, etc

Dropped, but still dangling a carrot in front of him by naming him at 23

Surely if we aren't signing anyone else of note next year we must be front ending some contracts? After all, we were purportedly offering Connor Watson good money and he didn't sign on. Where has that money gone? There hasn't been any signings of note since that time.

Watson signed with the knights because he was guaranteed to play Five Eight something we couldn't promise.

IMO we picked up 3 excellent "signings" this year... in Eisenhouth, Twal and Marsters...
