He should be the first to go wtf are the club thinking trying to sell Ryan and Heighno, when a bloke who has 0 form and doesn’t show half the heart these too do get’s a 3 year deal, what is going on? If we have salary cap problems release him first we already have more then better replacments waiting, add to that Lote has apparently re-signed what are our recruitment and retention people thinking?
The following is (according to Wikipedia) the list of 2012 contracted players. I will order them from least to most important to retain in my eyes. I’ve omitted those confirmed leaving.
As you can see Farah is at the bottom, yet there are murmurs of him leaving (should NEVER be the case, he should be locked up for life right now). There are also a stack of players that should be gone way before Ryan and Heighington. Them leaving is certainly not the end of the world but you don’t move on club stalwarts in this manner.
I agree that Moltzen should be on the chopping block.
Reality is that I would love to see Heighno at WT under a different coach to judge him but failing that I think Bell is a superior alternative with a reduced price tag. The kind of money CWH deserves at this stage of his career with WT would make it impossible to not name him in First Grade every weekend and on form I think we have better options for that lock position.
Spence matured greatly as a player before injury and is one I would retain
You do wonder how they can view Moltzen higher than Ryan. Especially when Ryan outplayed Moltz in each position they both had played.
Moltzen is hopeless he has no confidence and no ability in any position, where as beau has played his heart out all year even when he wasn’t in his preferred position

Ryan: Plays his ring out, one of the most consistent players in any otherwise abysmal year: Club renegs on his deal, shops him out.
Moltzen: Isn’t a fullbacks rear end, had a crap season and shouldn’t have been playing for the club in 2012 anyway: Gets a three year extension.
Business, WT style.
