Sees someone like Cotric get offered $600k and others leave Wests Tigers for more money even though they were still under and agreed contract.

If he leaves this weakens us?

I think you’ve answered your own question. If he leaves, it will cost us (perhaps) $600k to get a similar replacement. Given Nofo was a winger of the year it could be argued it may cost even more. Paying $600k for a winger will definitely weaken us.

Despite what some think, there is not a proliferation of quality wingers on the market and the ones available are costing more than Nofo. If we’re trying to keep the cap in check we’re better off keeping him.

We definitely shouldn’t pay overs - nor offer too long a contract - but for the sake of $50k or whatever we’d be mad not to try and retain him. I doubt any other winger we could buy would bleed gold and black like Nofo and provide the stats he does.

Haha
I will guarantee you that we can have a winger play for us for well under $600k.

Some people.

Nofo dancing to his managers tune.

My view is still this … Nofo has been here for a long time and we have never made the top eight.

Can someone explain to me how signing JO is compensation for JA leaving WT. We are signing JO from the Broncos with perhaps 2021 and 2022 subsidised by the Broncos. That is a completely standalone transaction from JA and is similar to the way we bought Mbye. If, because we have JO we let JA go to Manly a year early, where have we received any compensation? Sure we’re not paying any of his 2021 freight but neither we should because he sought to break his contract by leaving a year early. I just don’t see why some are saying signing JO is compensation for letting JA go to Many one year early.

I thought the POM said something about Manly paying his full freight next year plus something else but not a player.

I imagine they may be paying us cash for an early release over and above his contract money.

People still arguing over Balmain/WS not being relevant anymore forget that the Wests Tigers board are actually made up from Western Suburbs and Balmain representatives with a couple of independents thrown in.

And Wests Ashfield money controls the Wests Tigers.

Just seems our past really does control our future.

FWIW I heard that Benji may sign a one year deal at the Bulldogs for $400k IF the Panthers don’t release Burton early.

Watched his interview. Surprised how well he speaks for a 20 year old. Presents himself well with confidence. Pretty rare for players that age.

Do u have a link for the interview by chance?

It’ll be on Wests Tigers site

@tig_prmz said in Benji Marshall:

it’s his life and isn’t contracted to us. Cudos on him for giving it his all. I still think that he can add to a struggling team short on halves.

By the looks of it, those teams disagree.

I’m pretty sure they disagree on his asking price

My guess he will get a new club … but not for the $300k he was asking.

Apparantly he wants 400k not 300k either way it is far to much

If he is asking $400k then he won’t play in the NRL again. He’s living in the past.

This forum is much like the JAC situation. Happy that he is coming and how we will be better - except he isn’t coming.

Sirro and Joe O?

I’ll wait until I read it in a members email.
