Do we have anymore funds for a big name player?



  • With the continuous rapid rumours of the Tigers being linked to player after player and the fast start to recruitment for next year, I’m trying to come to terms with the amount of money we’d have avaliable.

    2018 signings

    Chris McQueen - 400k
    Ben Matulino - 475 k
    Josh Reynolyds - 700k
    Russell Packer - 600 k
    Greg Eastwood - 350 k
    Tui Lolohea - 430k
    Mane Fonua - 250 k?

    Not all confirmed, but all very likley. I don’t think we’d have any more money to sign anymore players.

    We have 750 k from Farah, 600k from Moses, 300 k from Simona, Woods 650 k, tedesco 650k, Siro 250k

    The money from Farah, simona and Siro were all added to the offers of Teddy, Moses and Woods.

    Tedesco reported 1.1 offer

    Woods 900k

    Moses was told he wasn’t a priority, but there was an offer of around 800-900 k at one stage.

    2.8 mil from three players! How proud I am of Ivan that we dodged that bullet, plus the raising of the cap to 9.3 mil, I’m pretty sure the cap is 7 mil now, so a 2.3 mil differentiation.

    2.8 mil plus 2.3 mil.

    5.1 mil, but the squad expands to thrity.

    So I’d say 4.3 mil remaining.

    So far if all rumours are true we’ve spent 3.2 mil

    1.1 mil remaning?

    Just come clarification would be nice, or am I way off with the whole theory?



  • Who needs funds just ask the Roosters, Bronc’s and Bulldogs



  • Meh, who knows. With all this third party crap there will never be clarity.

    Just go with the flow…

    Thank God we haven’t signed Eastwood and hopefully never will.



  • No idea, as Milky said - go with the flow



  • We’ve still got half a cap to play with, so naturally we do. The question is though, what big name do you want? The market is gradually drying up.



  • I want a lethal forward pack. The rest will take care of it self.



  • Well I think the pack is looking strong.

    I’m hoping this is what our 2018 team may look like, the point of this thread was to understand if we’d have the funds to afford it and I think we do.

    1. Israel Folau
    2. David Nofulamo
    3. Moses Suli
    4. Will Hopatate
    5. Mahe Fonua
    6. Josh Reynolyds
    7. Luke Brooks
    8. Ben Matulino
    9. Matt Mcwrllick
    10. Russell Packer
    11. Chris McQueen
    12. Aidan Guerra
    13. Elijah Taylor (if reports are true Id like to see us make a play for Hoffman)

    14. Sauaso Sue
    15. Josh Alioia
    16. Esan Masters
    17. Jacob Liddle

    That pack looks unreal, along with that backline.

    2. David Nofulamo

    Oh man that is the worst spelling yet…If he ever leaves the club I’ll be sure to call him that.

    As much as i’d like to see a wests junior return home he will be 34

    Would rather 3 or 4 Solid NRL players than 1 Big name…



  • We need to buy depth. Not another expensive risk.

    Any team list without Eastwood is a good one!
