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

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

Only thing that concerns me me is his highlights reel was very Jennings esque. Diving over from 5m out.
Does he actually have any pace. Ability to step, bat on the ball etc? From reports he does, but I can’t say I recall seeing him in CC nor has he had any big wraps on him as a future star for the chooks.
Let’s hope he’s not Chance Peni…

He took an intercept and ran 80m at good pace. Reportedly he is strong with good ball skills. Plays right side centre.

Yeah but Bradley took an intercept and ran 90m last year but I wouldn’t exactly call him fast… Above average perhaps. This kid looked as fast Doueihi from those highlights. How fast were the guys chasing him? Is he quick over 20, 50 or 100? Etc we need pace greater than what we currently have. He may be, we just don’t know yet.

Unfortunately we’re unlikely to get a look at him ourselves this season with no lower grades.

Love the kid. A shame when McQueen was picked ahead of him last week. He needs to be in the 17 every week for the rest of the season. And get him a contract extension to 2025.
He offers more than McIntyre, mck, McQueen and really every other forward we have. We have lots of workers. We lack aggression and intimidation. He HAS to be there from now on
