The Telecrap on Sunday said the Bulldogs might even have to get rid of Klemmer of Josh Jackson, to become compliant next year.
I'd take Jackson without even hesitating.
I'm saving a seat on the bus for him or someone of his standard.
Their issue is that other clubs would need to pay the full contract or close to it and there are very few players who clubs are prepared to pay the whole amount to. Probably only Klemmer or Jackson. The Dogs are in such a terrible position they can't subsidise any contracts. If it was us it'd be on the back page every day.
It really comes down to how desperate the Dogs are in the end where they might have to subsidise some of their star players to become compliant.

If Hayne gets shown the door today and we don't end up with Rona would you consider signing Hayne as a winger?
No way thanks

I really cant see the dogs letting one of them two go whilst retaining Eastwood or Tolman....my tip is they will negotiate with the tigers management for us to keep woods

Ivan was on dead set legends last night talking about Sunday's game but also about recruitment & depth of the squad moving forward .

He comes in at 21.35 into this podcast

Good listen. Still looking for a few more it seems but almost done.
The star of the team is the team.

I think that you are correct about Woods staying at WT might even get some compensation to top up his salary

Only hearsay but an offer was made to Hayne - part of the deal was a roaming commission, so that he could pop up anywhere and give it his best shot. Apparently he liked this idea.

The stumbling block was that he wasn't allowed to attempt to score any tries between the posts.
Apparently the reasoning behind this was, that his head wouldn't fit between the posts. Lol.

Off the Bulldogs forum but someone posted that BMoz looked like heading to the WTs but blew it when he asked for 4 years but we supposedly offered only 2. 2 years too many for my liking.

Whaaa? While I wouldn't sign him for 4 years, 2 years with Brett Morris would be awesome.

NSW winger has been one of the few shining lights in under-performing teams.
He still has speed, commitment and is an excellent defender.
He is better than every back we have.
Dayum!

What about Canberra.

If we are taking on anyone I would be looking there ahead of the dogs.....
Dogs I do like Aiden Tollman as a possibility.
Canberra, sure we can't get Papalii but maybe another forward.

Re sign Jamal if his headspace is still good, a new contract would help that

I am hearing Dogs won't have a problem getting Woods and Foran signed. They have lined up takers for Graham, Eastwood, J Morris heavily subsidised. It will cost them 1.25m in dead money as no one will pay full freight.

Yeah that's a bit of a shame, if true. If we don't get Rona, we still need to find a speedy winger, imo. The two intercepts by Nofo on Sunday not resulting in tries highlights our desperate need for some speed on the flanks.

I've got doubts about that. $1.25m is a massive hit. If it's 9.5m I don't see how they fit that roster in.

And go ahead and over spend the cap thinking they are Sydney Rosters

Reportedly - if they are 500k over the cap getting rid of those three even with subsidised contracts will see them through next year. Graham has only one year left on his contract ( not sure about the other two ) they should be able to recover from 2019. The one big difference they have over us when we got into trouble with management of our cap is plenty of money to steady the ship.
It will be interesting though to see what they do with Des and Dib.

The second intercept lead to Kev's try, there are not too many players that would not get run down by Tom T.

Graham and morris boys go till end of next year. Eastwood 2019 im pretty sure? Anyway it doesnt matter what they do honestly. Foran is a walking medical case, hopoate hasnt scored a try this year and hes there fullback, Fraweley cant tackle or kick to save himself and mybe is a terrible no 9.

The bulldogs and Souths will fight it out for the spoon next year.
