We already have McQueen and Lawrence as experienced back-rowers.

I am not against this signing, it would be great, but I think money can be better spent elsewhere for dynamic game-breakers.
Neither of them are anywhere near the standard that Lewis still is.
And I hate saying that about Rowdy,
McQueen is either carrying a long time injury or is way out of form,
He's been ordinary for most of this season when he has played.
I get that, Lewis is far superior to Rowdy and Mcqueen.

My point is that we are paying Rowdy and McQueen big bucks and if they're not in the starting side, then it's a waste.

Depth is one thing, but you don't want to pay $$$ for an old player to play in reserve grade.

Everyone is complaining about how we are paying Sirro & Farah big dollars not to play for us, this is basically the same.
We aren't paying Lawrence big bucks. He took a pay cut and is on around $300k for the remainder. Plus I believe we get a bit of credit for long service players. 300k for a top 30 player will be around average if not the losers end.

I'd like to see Lewis here for the work ethic and example he sets.

I'd be surprised if we got him. Would definitely help our backrow stocks for sure. Out of interests sake, I'd be keen to see whether Rowdy could match him in a foot race.

Lewis won last years Clive Churchill Medal and has still been awesome this year. If it wasn't for him we would have beaten Cronulla at Shark Park this year. If we got the chance I would definitely sign him as a starting second rower. He is was we need and we have money.

That is unders for a guy of his quality...I believe our interest is a serious one...

What he would bring on and off the field would be worth every cent...

Absolutely, that is great value. I'd be extremely happy if we landed him.

I chat to him every Saturday or so was taking to him after the Tigers game and he said next year the Tigers will go good if I see him this week will ask him if there is any chance of coming to the Tigers last time he said Maloney is staying at Cronulla next year

For 500k I think he would definitely be worth it. I compare everyone now to the big 4's salaries. Everyone else seems cheap. Taumalolo on $1m per year for 10 years is a steal.

Would be great to sign him, but I reckon he'll get the 2 years and stay with the Sharks. He's such an integral part of their team now and I don't think they would want to lose him for the sake of one season. If he was asking for 3 or 4 years, different story.

How's his form though? At 34, outrunning the backs of 2 opposing teams to score long range tries, 2 weeks in a row! :o

The roosters have Aubuson, Cordner, Takiaho or what ever his name is, plus a few other backrowers on contract.
Lewis would start for us but at the chooks probably not, doesn't usually stop the roosters hoarding though.
11. Matterson
12. Cordner
13. Taukeiaho

14. Aubusson

Depth: Nat Butcher

The Roosters are pretty well covered there but that's hardly stopped them in the past...

Manly on the other hand have bugger all quality in their 2nd row. If they've got the cap space I'd expect them to make a serious play.

I'd also expect the Sharks to grudgingly offer him a 2nd year. It won't be for as much coin but they'll not let him go without some fight.

I'd say in descending order of likelihood it's Sharks, Manly, Tigers, Roosters.

Cameron Munster, Tom Trbojevic, Boyd Cordner, Jason Taumalolo, Matt Gillett, Cameron Smith...many I would opt for over Luke Lewis at 34.
