Stefano Utoikamanu

Just wondering about people’s perspectives on how this young bloke may be feeling at the moment. For mine, the longer it takes for the 2020 season to reboot the more he could be thinking about his secure 2021 environment - with us.

He’s a needle in a haystack. Probably not feeling much different to every other player.

Soon as they reduce the salary cap for 2021 every contract will ne null and void

Taumalolo could be a Tiger next year

I doubt it as the border will still be closed

Will be in my dream

If that happens, well, we trusted Madge to have a crack at building our team last year, I’m happy to let him have another go if it comes up.

Don’t get your hopes up. Most likely most players will stay at their respective clubs, just less money.

Probably …but working off the usual 20% turnover we could really make some massive upgrades for 2021

I feel sorry for the bloke, he could have had some 40% pay at the Tigers contract level rather than his development level contract with Parra, before corona hit.

Upside is Tigers aren’t forking out money for him to sit on the sideline, like Parra are. Obviously we are forking out money for our own blokes to sit on the sidelines, but given that we could have accommodated Stefano in 2020, we’ve saved some money there.

Has the NRL waived the 29 player minimum at this time, for club rosters in June? Anyone know?

I would be amazed if they have even thought about it.Being proactive with ideas is not one of their traits

One would think that in the current crisis, that criticism is fairly off the mark. Not only have they been extremely proactive about managing the corona slow-down, there’s no regular football on, so they don’t have to do their regular jobs?

The more Parra annoy him to more it would feed the beast in him hopefully

Doubt anything would even be discussed right now given all the clubs staff are either on leave or stood down until duties start soon.

I feel that everything they are trying to do is to get the competition up and running again and i honestly doubt if they would have given this a thought

If Stefano came in and lives up to the hype, who would miss out in our prop rotation?
Twal, Aloiai, Musgrove and Mikaele.
Or would we permanently shift Aloiai to Lock?
