To all and sundry saying "Just chuck the extra $100-$200K at AD and make it happen, it probably cant happen like that AND still get BJ.
If it comes down to BJ WANTS to come here and we can make it happen, but that means we cant throw an additional $100-$200K at AD to make it happen (at reported rates for AD), Im OK with that.
Make BJ happen, he is a specialist and proven over years, MBYE or CT in the 1.
If we can still squeeze AD in and he wants to come here, happy days but dont get in a bidding war with other clubs or get into a negotiation fight with Souffs if it means missing BJ.
I agree with our approach. No overs for AD.
And great second tear signing.
I think that BJ would be a priority and really puts bit of spit and polish to our 3/4s.
Hearing that there is a trial between Tigers and bulldogs on thursday anyone else heard this rumor?
whats everyone thoughts on bj jeilua if he comes to us

I can see it now… We hold firm over 100k and Roosters come in late and take him because Smith got injured and he kills it over there…
Just our luck we try and be a strong club and not been bullied but miss out on a potential star…
And what’s the big deal about that.
Have heard he is coming for sure as well as AD

Yeah not sure mate
Adam Douehi is worth no more than 400k, BJ 450k. You could justify 50k more at a stretch.
Not a chance you take either on back ended inflated contracts.If we are talking 600k + walk away now.
I like both but the club has to be sensible and not get desperate. It’s how we ended up with Reynolds, Mbye, Packer on big money.

Still in shock AD is being talked about in the 500k range. Honestly, how did that even happen at Souths.
Simply put, AD is not a 500k player. He is JUST potential at this moment.
Name one starting fullback in the nrl who’s better than him and on less money.
Err, how many games has he played at fullback? He is completely unproven. Players like Ponga are the exception. AD is nowhere near a Ponga.
I’m definitely not saying I don’t want AD, or I don’t believe he has talent. He is just absolutely not worth that money right now, and it’s a big gamble to give it to him.

Madge talking about recruitment approach
“We need to be clear about not making the same mistakes this club’s made in the past,” Maguire said.
“We’re in the process of making major changes but we need to be smart about how we make those changes.
“The position our salary cap is in at the moment, we need to get players’ values spot on.
“We want to give players the best opportunity to build something here at Wests Tigers that hasn’t been here at the club for some time.
“We’ve got a great young squad, now we just need to be patient about making the right decisions around who we bring into the club next.
“We won’t be just spending money for the sake of spending it.
“I’d rather take my time and focus on building the club from the ground up. We’ll be diligent about making the right decisions.”

Apparently there are some kind of dramas at Parramatta with Shaun lane
It seems he is not happy
Contracted till the end of 2020
Maybe we should apply some pressure here
Then eels may think about releasing Stefano
Just a discussion with lane should do it
Lane change? Frustrated Eels forward considers options
I know I know
Maybe someone can post the article

Leilua is looking closer to being a Tiger, no official offer but prepared to pay $500,000 over 3 years.
Douhei is keen & so is Madge, as been said before major sticking point is what Souths will put in. They don’t want to cover anything & we refuse to pay all or his 2021 wage. So that could hit a stalemate.
The Tigers digging their heels in does nothing. Souths won’t budge and we have no leverage in negotiations. All we’re doing is allowing other clubs a chance to swoop in.
This isn’t some surplus signing like Stefano. It would fix a weakness in our squad.
Just sign the damn kid for what he’s worth
But that’s the whole point - that ‘damn kid’ is on $600 next year and Souths don’t want to pay anything.
Big, big no from me on those terms.

Ad for $600,000
Ado-carr for $600,000
Who is better value ?
Ummm, maybe I should have waited.
Apologies folks - my bad. Outside top 30 is ok.
You ok Steve?
Perhaps a tiny overreaction.
When’s Round 1?
Don’t worry I almost spat out my diet coke when i read it. I thought it was top 30 too.
Even though it’s not top 30, what’s the point of this signing? Are we still seen as the retirement village for all the has beens?
Honest to God Madge and Pascoe must really hate us! They know that we’re absolutely hanging out for a decent signing, any decent signing… so they feed us this crap! Bloody sadists!
