everythingrugbyleague.com has thrown up a possible Marty Taupau back to the Tigers and Garner to Manly Scenario as well as Sims to the Tigers.
We have the money for next year. two year deals for both with clubs kicking in about 25% for each next year would be ok.
Marty apparently goes up to 800k a season next year
Sims apparently stay on around 620k a season next year.
If we picked both up with a bit of a kick from the clubs I’d see value in it. Certainly more value than Woods rejoining.
Marty perfect front row pair for Stef and mentor for Mikalee who could be our Kapow from 2014. And Sims can play middle and back row and would be a good mentor for Blore. Much needed reinforcements!
If there was any chance of getting Marty back for $660-$700 Id jump but it adds a prop when we need a 2RF.
I did say both
A starting FR pack of Stef and Marty with Mikaele, Twal, Tamou, Musgrove, Joffa, Seyfarth and Tuki Simpkins in the mix is a pretty decent mix of youth and experience in the engine room.
