Won't get any of them (that's reality).

Mbye was supposed to be the greatest thing since sliced bread when he came onto the NRL scene, this is why the Bulldogs put so much stock (and money) into him, forsaking so many others and getting into a financial mess.

He certainly hasn't lived up to the hype so far, but that could be more to do with team dynamics and the coaches he has played under, rather than a real lack of talent. I think his game at fullback has already improved under Pay this season, even though he is still playing in a struggling team.

It's now up to Ivan, and of course Mbye himself, to unearth the 'diamond' that the Bulldogs saw in him a few years ago when he first began. Getting players to realise their potential hasn't been our strongest suit over the years, but things are a bit different now with Ivan and the new coaching team onboard, so here's hoping.

I think he's a solid buy and if all reports are true the Dogs paying $250K of his salary is even better. In the games I have seen so far he has been one of the Dogs better players and his character seems to fit into Ivan's long term culture regeneration. All in all, a great choice and I wish he was joining us this season.

As much as I'd like to believe it'll happen, have to agree, willow.

According to the report at the start of this thread we’re paying 550,000 to 600,000 of his 800,000 contract. Dogs still have to come up with 250,000 to 200,000. Seems OK to me.
Need more props.

So the Kennel now is saying they are close to signing Nick Meaney to replace Mbye - According to some on here it was a done deal here with Meaney. Aah the vagaries of NRL signings - its what keeps forums guessing.
a lot of clubs would've been looking at Meaney. I wouldn't be surprised if we were looking at 4-5 different fullbacks before we signed Mbye.

I'd be looking at one of the Sharks' youngsters (perhaps Katoa) if Barba comes home. Also the Eels' prop Alvarro, continues to improve and would be worth a look with reduced interchanges.

Haha see your stirring the pot over there with your Nathan Milone suggestion as a replacement.

Unbelievable signing if true. Only 24 years of age, has speed to burn, can play fullback or 5/8, can kick goals. For $550k an absolute bargain. Well done Ivan , doing things our previous coach could never dream off.

Thats insane! We sholud be getting them to pay atleast 300,000. Even so I don't like this signing.... We need a natural fullback not another Lolohea

You cant say that for sure
We still have positions available
We still have money to spend
How much is the ?
And we have players coming off contract which will give us more money to spend
Does Ivan invest in no name players or is he after a proven player that can step straight into the team
What other clubs still have the big $ and are lacking 2nd row forwards
No one knows that for sure AT THIS STAGE

I really feel sorry for Thompson. He has been our best player all year and is safe as houses.

Does this squeeze out Nofa from the side?
Tui will be the one to drop out.
Or Tui becomes your utility on the bench. Kelly Egan mentioned the Tigers were after a utility. If you're looking to recruit one, you'd have to think the idea is you play one.

Given the chatter around reduced interchange, you'd think future benches would include a back/utility.
Good point didn’t think about that.

Good joke.

I think Milone has to retire due to injuries
