He really had no idea, did he.
No one did.
But what you are seeing with the dogs is Dib/Castle knowing how they can push the cap. Then Anderson and CO coming in and going “Oh, … were way over”.
I kinda dont blame Woodsy for not understanding the finances. Mr Moses, well that’s a different story. Clearly they can’t afford Morris on 600k and Woods, Klemmer, Jackson, Foran, Hopoate (I don’t want him unless he comes cheaply!), etc.
FYI, I would take Woodsy back at 400-450k, he is an upgrade on Tim Grant but clearly not as good as our 600k players. I honestly don’t get why people expect brains and smarts from Rugby League Forwards, look great when they are there… But I generally assume a Willie Mason Benchmark till proven otherwise.
I agree with everything you say Col. He sounded like a dope and looks likes one now. What we’re seeing is that he’d be a great third or fourth guy but as the leader of a pack his stats were quite empty, be it for us or NSW.
