Dogs are a lot better at these fire sales than us…
When we need to create some cap space we volunteer to keep paying some of the players contract that is leaving (or throw a young stud into the deal to sweeten it)
Dogs need to create space (Folou signing etc) and we offer to take a contracted player off their hands and pay him double the value of his current contract
Rhino wasn’t any worse than Blair this Season and didn’t give away stupid penalties . however some hard decisions are now required

Problem is that noone would bail us out of the Blair contract without the Tigers wearing the majority of the cost.
I can understand your frustration Mac. I haven’t been able to go back and watch it again but yes, if the ref blew the whiste before Inu made his second attempt then that effectively is the end of the play. You can’t score a try after the ref has already acknowledged a deadball situation and called time off. Obviously nothing is going to change and the 2nd half performnce doesn’t deserve a win but i will be interested to watch the replay and look for that.
Lawrence wasn’t the problem at all, i couldn’t blame any of that 2nd half capitulation on Lawrence. And if we win, which was only 2 mins away, i would have said great decision to play Lawrence because he got a game under his belt before the Melbourne prelim game.
