My bad - I meant Junior Development....
My understanding of it (although way back) was you could use it on long serving players
- Or junior developments, If you didn't have a player eligible - You could bring up a couple extra young blokes?

I also remember us getting fined for using LSP allowance on Farah,
Because we asked if he was eligible (As a Junior) they were slow getting back to us, and we went ahead discounting him anyway and were over the cap after they knocked him back.
We'd counted a couple of his junior years at Balmain... And they had a problem with that
(Because we're Wests Tigers)
Veteran and Developed Player Allowance for eligible players who were either developed by the Club prior to becoming NRL players and / or have been a Top 30 player for at least 8 years at the Club or have been a Top 30 player for at least 10 years across the game

Did Mattel ever make a Ross Conlon doll?

A players player.

On my Mattel set, you could wind him up and he’d kick a goal from anywhere in the laundry.

Sail over the cat and into the front loader to win the club championship.

I’d make Edmed sit out it under the bed in a sock for the entire season because he signed with Superleague.

I think even Keith Barnes told him to sign with Superleague. Balmain were going to offer him 50k or something, SL offered him $1m over three years. Can’t blame him for taking the offer. As I recall when he told the Balmain management what the offer was they said he should accept it.

Edit: Turns out it was John Chalk who told him to take the $uper League money. Our offer may have been as low as $40k for one season.

That was to get rid of him. He was crap

We can easily accommodate Klemmer and Leniu, be it cap or spots available. It's not like our forwards are worth keeping happy. We have forwards who can do a job and that is it. Musgrove, Seyfarth, Simpkins, goodbye. Our depth is hopeless. A backrower is needed urgently too.

I would only be content with one of Nofoaluma or Maumalo. Need difference in our backline, some speed on the other wing wouldn't hurt. Doueihi is not a centre.

We def should have cap room but we have 28 spots filled for next year so to bring players in we are going to have to release players as you prob always want 1 spot left at least till mid year to be able to deal with unexpected injuries

I agree with the other 2 but Sheens has already publicly stated he wants to work with Tuki. He was told he was free to look elsewhere and then Sheens stepped in, wouldnt mind betting he upgrades him modestly for another season to take a proper look at him.

I'd be looking to move on Musgrove out of those 3 first imposter of a footballer, Klemmer and Leniu would improve our pack infinitely if the deal is there to be done we should do it. We got rolled through the middle like ive never seen last year.

NRL.com has the actual signings which to be fair is 28 but I have added Tommy Talau and taken away Liddle who they have forgotten to take off or it isn't registered at Dragons yet.

Oh really? re Tuki. Thought it was just POM who said that Sheens wants to keep him.

Saw that written here somewhere - Don't know that Sheens said it publicly...
I'd be keeping Musgrove over Tuki.
Having watched him a bit in Reserves, I don't see anything much in him...
To the point he's well behind Dias and Aitasi.

Tuki wouldn't have been near firsts at any other club...
Musgrove would've (And has) And will....
I can't say that for Tuki unfortunately...
