The highest paid tiger on the books for 2020 is Josh Reynolds he currently takes up roughly 7% of the cap. That is horrendous. Luckily for tigers they have brooks on a lower end contract for halves in NRL (500k) which equals about 4.5% and Benji which is about 2.5% generally MOST nrl clubs would have close to 25% of the cap Tied up in the “spine” even with a bad contract
On their hands with a player who probably won’t play a game this year tigers spine only soak up 18% of the cap. So adding douehi who could conceivably play 2 positions in the spine for 500k taking up about another 4.5% of the cap, isn’t terrible given the situation.

Brooks’ 550k contract was for 2018-2019. His new contract started this season (2020-2023). He’ll be earning in the 850-900k region.

Mbye reported to be earning 950k.

I can tell you neither of those numbers are correct

You should list all 30 players for 2020 contract amounts then

Madge talking about recruitment approach
“We need to be clear about not making the same mistakes this club’s made in the past,” Maguire said.

“We’re in the process of making major changes but we need to be smart about how we make those changes.

“The position our salary cap is in at the moment, we need to get players’ values spot on.

“We want to give players the best opportunity to build something here at Wests Tigers that hasn’t been here at the club for some time.

“We’ve got a great young squad, now we just need to be patient about making the right decisions around who we bring into the club next.

“We won’t be just spending money for the sake of spending it.

“I’d rather take my time and focus on building the club from the ground up. We’ll be diligent about making the right decisions.”

And if we sign Josh Hoffmann , he looks like a total idiot (and yes I left a word out )

Better option than than Kane Mcquiggin & McIntyre playing in the centres. Far out

What …

Read what Madge said 'we are waiting for the right players" and then we sign Hoffman (top 30 or not top 30 )

Madge will look a complete idiot

I don’t believe the pom
Edit: he might be right

I’m guessing you back all 24 runners in the Melbourne Cup as well

What do you have against Canterbury Cup signings. ?

Because it is an attempt to cover over the fact no one worth two bob wants to play NRL here

Play it out whatever way you like …and the comments by Maguire back that up

People seem to think we have had two months to sign players for 2020 …we’ve had since November 2018 and the best we have come up with is Leilua

If people aren’t questioning where the club is at right now …they never will

Really?

Hoffman has played very limited games the past three years…many of them limited minutes / many of them he broke down in.

I realise our state cup backline is terrible, but could we not try and recruit a youngster who:
A Might play most weeks
B Possibly develop and become an NRL player one day

Surely we want a state cup team where players down there are applying pressure and / or developing?

Hoffman will be 32 mid season.

32 Round 1

Adam Douehi is worth no more than 400k, BJ 450k. You could justify 50k more at a stretch.
Not a chance you take either on back ended inflated contracts.If we are talking 600k + walk away now.

I like both but the club has to be sensible and not get desperate. It’s how we ended up with Reynolds, Mbye, Packer on big money.

450k for BJ? Lol. I mean yeah if you could. But you can’t. His metric value is closer to 700k. So yeah 450k won’t happen BUT how good is blind impressions of ones worth

On his day he is worth 700 k …but how many 700 k days does he have in a season 4-5 maybe at best

You weigh up need v what else is available. To not go after the best available centre when your need for centre is high and you have cap space AND you will get
Him on a discount for 2020 would be irresponsible

And it won’t matter if we have Meninga and Kenny in the centres if we don’t sign a 1 and 9

But don’t let that get in the way

Ad for $600,000
Or
Ado-carr for $600,000

Who is better value ?

I don’t think any winger in the game is worth 600 k and that includes Radradra
