This Mbye to Titans talk going around suggests Madge and Hartigan have some recruitment targets that are probably interested in coming to the Tigers.

I actually think we’ll have enough cap room to buy a few decent players if they become available:

E05B2F37-95F7-4E17-9C08-80D367A83EA8_4_5005_c.jpeg

I’m guessing if we got rid of Jennings, McQueen, Taylor, Seyfarth and Dylan Smith from this list as well as the $375K we get back for the “cap breach”, there could be around $1.5 to 1.6 million to spend.

Add Mbye if we move him on, that’s $2 Million. You then need to replace 6 players with $2 million.

Currently, 5 players barely play first grade…we get no NRL game time for the money we pay. We could rebalance the cap by bringing in 4 junior players on minimal contracts.

4 x Juniors = $500,000
2 x Rep/Star players = $1,500,000

4 development boys joining the top 30 next season - probably on a bit over $100k each

I’m sure it was mentioned that the final 4 top 30 spots can be paid an 85k salary @Geo ?

It’s $115k in 2021 for these

Do you have that in writing?
Not being a smart alac but would be currious to read what the salary cap conditions are for next year.

NRL site has it but Wiki is more straight forward

Thanks.
Yeah says 2019 105k for minimum wage but Geo mentioned something about that applying only for the first 25. Either way. I’m scratching my head even more bout the roosters.
They must be paying Jake Friend around 275k amongst other high profile players…

They have talked about reducing the cap in future years, but I dont see how they could unless its like 3 years in the future. All player contracts are entered into factoring in future salary caps, so logistically reducing the cap would be a nightmare for every player and every club.

I went Aloiai. Not convinced he’s the best option, but I am hoping should he be given the opportunity that he will take it with both hands and become the leader we need.

@JoshColeman99 said in Moses Mbye Super Duper Thread:

He leads the competition for try assists for any outside backs this year so he has a lot to offer

Really? Is that across the whole comp? Even if it was just at the Tigers I’d be surprised. Moses MBye? Mitchell Moses, perhaps.

MBye leading the comp on try assist for any player who’s last name starts with ‘MB’ … perhaps.

Trying to stay positive? I don’t see that at all during the games. I see the team’s heads go down, and a lot of players give up.

I find this article so rubbish it is offensive.

Madge blasted them vs Warriors, and we still lost. This week, he tried the gentle gentle approach vs Knights, and we lost even worse.

Don’t listen to them Madge, to the nay-sayers. Go hard, demand excellence. Don’t change your tactics, drop the players you want to drop, don’t re-sign the players you want to let go. I know we got bugger all to choose from atm, I hope the Board has your back, us fans sure do.

Well he has selected Benji again so it looks like he will kept next season?

I don’t know if his tenure as coach could survive signing Benji for next year.

Maybe Madge thinks Liddle might need some cover at hooker, hence Reynolds on the bench. Maybe he thought it would be too disrupting to have MBye cover him, and then need to cover MBye’s position.

How about Madge, MBye to bench instead of Reynolds, Reynolds to 5/8 instead of Benji, Benji dropped, Talau back to centre, AJ back to winger.

And Blore in for Lawrence for good measure.

Time to start thinking ahead, and if you aren’t here next year, then you’re not picked.

Yeah can’t say I’d be too keen on signing TPJ

Surely as you said Roosters would have to be favourites.

I don’t think we would necessarily be a good fit for us atm, it doesn’t sound like he’d lead or pack or transform, s with his top notch work ethic. But maybe we can sniff around wherever he is going to end up and help by pinching one of their players. Manly and Roosters have a few I’d love to snare. Doggies, not so much, maybe Elliot.

Easts have a stack of backrowers, and on good dollars too, if they push Crighton out to fit him in then even better, but if we could try get TPJ and Staggs as a package it might be doable as they might stay together, interesting times ahead. We need our recruitment team on their A game now, things are going to happen fast

For sure, I’d push hard. I might think he may not be the best fit atm, but really, that’s what coaches are for and if Madge couldn’t turn him around Madge shouldn’t be our coach.

Landing him would be huge for us, and would definitely improve our side and our ability to land the big names. Definitely go hard. For him and Staggs, love it!
