Let’s just keep both Grant and Simpkin. Rotate them (eventually) between lock and hooker.

It was the best debut we’ve had since Benji. Off contract soon and other clubs will be circling. Extend him by early September at the latest, but start talks now

That is how the Broncos have got themselves into trouble paying overs on promise, there is no need to rush. If you sign a player at a lower value & then their form sees what they believe is a rise in value a player tends to leave chasing his new value nowadays so no point at this stage.

There’s no need to rush today. There is a need to rush over the next few months. After half a dozen games we’ll get a good idea of where he’s at and suitable contract terms.

No one has suggested overpaying him ridiculous money - just extending his contract so we don’t lose him from the club

Interesting, I don’t call an extra year on my current deal ‘long term’

From the link above.

“I’m really impressed by Michael Maguire and the club overall, and I’m looking forward to pulling on the Wests Tigers colours in the coming years.”

Wests Tigers Head Coach Michael Maguire said he was looking forward to Blore joining the club and seeing his career develop further in the coming years.

“I’m very pleased to secure a player with Shawn’s ability and talent at this point of the year and look forward to watching him develop further,” Maguire said.

“I’ve spent a lot of time with Shawn lately and can see strong leadership qualities in him which I look forward to seeing develop on and off the field in the years to come.”

Both him and Maguire mention future years…

I’m sure they’ve talked about extending his contract and his longer term future at the club. As a kid who hadn’t played first grade yet its understandable to not sign a long term deal straight away. Prove himself a bit and earn more money via hard work and good performances.

Is it just me that thinks something is fishy in this Suaali kid is going to knock back a million a year from Rugby to accept half a million a year to play with the Rabbits

Who on this forum would accept a half million pay cut to play for the Rabbits

Not me

Rabbits offering 2.4 million over 4 years apparently.
Rugby apparently offered 300k for 18 months, with the offer of Olympics selection.

If cust signs with us, and foran goes back to manly (with Schuster for cover), then Reynolds may be a chanceuatvthe dogs if we pay half.

Remember we also have young Camroux in Flegg, who’s a lanky goal kicking 5/8 and top talent. Hopefully he and Rizk are hitting the gym and putting on some weight to get their bodies ready for next season

Practically no one’s seen him play. He played 15 games last season between wing and fullback, yet people think he’ll be thrown in the centres?
He’s a big kid. My concern from his limited highlights reel was his pace. Interesting to get a look at him at some stage, unlikely for a while though.
Anyone know if he’s on an nrl contract or a development contract for this year and nrl contract the next 3? Seeing dev players are eligible for nrl this year we may have saved our last spot for someone else, more experienced. Roosters having already paid 75% of his contract he’d only be on a tiny amount this season.

Forans days of big $$ contracts are over.Manly more likely to pay $300-400 for him than dogs who have been badly burnt with him…which creates room for Reynolds
…heres hoping!

I’d pay $400k for Foran in a heartbeat.

Dogs are only offering him about 200-250k. That’s what they think he’s worth. Why would we pay more? He’s apparently said he’d like to stay and prove himself at the dogs and money isn’t a prime motivator.

Offer him slightly more than what we’re paying Benji and if he’s interested we get an upgrade. No loss if not

Penrith offering Crichton $375k a year for 4 years. I doubt he would leave Penrith but that is a bargain price, I’d throw some money at him come November

Penrith know he’ll get good offers seems like they want to sign him up before November. Hopefully we are smart enough to do the same with some of our guys like Twal and Aloiai

He would have to have the worst agent in the world if he takes that deal. He could be on 375k for two years maybe but if they want him for 4 they’d have to be offering a 1.8-1.9 million

He has the second worst roster in the league yet has us in and around the eight. Extend him for two years and let him have full control of the club
