Plus 2021 still sees us with Reynolds and Packer tying up $1.5m, biggest one to drop off after this year is McQueen at $400k

Plus the $330k Robbie Farah post football job penalty.

Take it with a grain of salt

From LL

Arrow and Packer to Rabbitohs
AD to Storm
Turguss to Titans
JAC and Stefano to Tigers

Why would Eels let Stefano go? The four teams above would all be happy, considering, but unless the Eels had a CEO/coach transplant, its doubtful they’d let Stefano go.

Edit: Thanks for the rumour though, it would be great for us.

Believe Eels are attempting to nab back a junior that we may have signed to make a play for JAC. They’ve long admitted Bevan French didn’t have what it took to be a real speedster and have outside back riches that could dazzle even Belly… the player they’d like to poach is not Stefano so he is now a bargaining chip on our shoulder!

Interesting, but I don’t understand. Can I get the verbose version please?

This is the last time I get my hopes up from a rumoured signing. If Doueihi isn’t signed tomorrow I’ll lose it.

For Doueihi?

Ill be more annoyed if signing Doueihi prevents signing BJ

Signing BJ does not address the issue of a chronic lack of pace.

Agreed but the reason we want pace is to enable line breaks/score tries. BJ clearly addresses the issue of breaking the line/scoring tries.

Particularly if our pack improves as we hope. Sometimes to me when we are in the oppositions 20 is when we look least likely to score. IMO BJ will certainly help there.

We can break the line ok, but it is worthless because Nofoaluma and Jennings do not have the pace to finish. If we don’t sign pacey players this off season, our recruitment has been a disaster.

I’m with you. Reckon we would have been better off keeping tedesco, papenhuyzen, addo carr, korobete and mcdonnell.

Hindsight much…

Sarcasm. Sorry.

JAC wouldn’t be signing with Bulldogs , can just add that little tidbit to the ongoing saga

It’s a postcode/family thing but Melbourne almost about to give in to a financial deal. Could be ideal keeping Jenko, Momirovski and having them play second fiddle to Abbey, Nof, Mbye, Talau and Josh with C.T as utility and Garner’s younger brother proving impressive already!

Anyone know if a transfer fee counts on the cap?

Now that’s a great question … given the NRL’s high-level incompetence I’ll guess yes

2021?

Let it be done.

So now we can get back to normal transmission post LM and JAC discussions, who realistically is on the market, not, would’t it be nice to have so and so, but who is off contract or being shopped around. I’m also thinking about whats in the UK and also rugby (a Koribeti or a Jordan Petaia style player)

I’m thinking that the cupboard is looking very bare at the present for fullbacks, hookers and centres
Any thoughts on the subject

It is but put it inot perspective.
2 have gone to penrith,holmes has returned are the only confirmed transfers. I havnt seen offical confirmation on croft and Scott from Melbourne.

There are no decent off contract players at all. We are chasimg players who have a year still to go. Yoir not going to get a good result like that. I really wish the Nrl jusg have the b***s and save that a contract must be followed and if a player wangs to leave early they have to be on the same salary or less thanthey are currently on. It will get rid of alot of the rumours and c**p thag is going on. Most of the players would stay most likely.

I just posted this on another thread

“The NRL needs to bring in mandatory contract completion for both players and clubs”

That would not be lawful.

Not having a go at you, but that is hilarious.
