@AJ1 said in David Nofoaluma re-signs until 2025..:

Given Lee’s earlier comments on Nofo it appears likely he overruled Hartigan and Madge on the length of the contract.
I’m happy to have Nofo locked up for the long-term. He plays a big role in our culture and it’s important to reciprocate that in his contract, especially given our handling of previous players in the past.

Why, what were Hartigan and Maguire’s desired lengths of the contract?

Mitch resigns as Knights captain, he keeps his contact, the girl he texted now no longer employed by the Knights, seems like she gets punished more than Mitch.

If she had stayed at the Knights how uncomfortable would it have been for her at least by leaving things should settle a lot quicker for her.

Whaaaat? - so she has to quit over that lowlife - I hope the NRL investigate whatever payout they made as being part of their salary cap.

Do we know what her role in this was though? If she was consenting to it then what could she expect? And was she sacked or did she quit?

If it’s true that Nofa is asking $650k then he’s priced himself out of WT. I hope he gets picked up by eels and gets a combo going with Moses. I think we paid too much for Nofa ($450k) at a time when we had all our stars leaving and now it’s biting us on the gluteus because everyone with a sentimental soul , including Nofa, thinks he’s worth an upgrade. During the last 3 years when he was on $450k , Fox was on $350k. I still think his true value to WT is $325k plus a top up with vets and car of about $80k - $100k. You never no if you don’t ask? Someone was desperate enough to buy fox at $650k. It’s going to be very interesting to see how that unfolds?

it is scary to think JAC was on 350k and Nofo 450k
right time right place for Nofo when our stars left he stayed
Shouldn’t be able to win lotto twice
Joey L can leave end of 2022 ? imagine nofo money for Stagg or Stephen crighton

Key word: imagine.

cash is a reality if we use it for 2022 one hell of a war chest
Packer and Nofo money on Stagg or Crighton and a depth player signing

I agree that we pay 450k at the most and really it’s the appropriate amount for Nofo. But Staggs and Crichton are much younger than him and have already had somewhat comparable career best years. Wests Tigers are not signing them on 450-500k and we just don’t have the TPAs to do anything else. You can imagine but it will never ever happen.

Wow, we are a passionate bunch. If we had signed, heck, we did want to sign, a few of these Dogs guys we’d be singing their praises.

Time will tell but it’s a top-heavy strategy the Dogs have taken. Still really uncertain about their forward pack.

@Cairnstigers said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

Well if true hopefully we can get a full pre season with Laurie at fullback, Doueihi and Brooks in the halves and Liddle at Hooker
Just because we get Mansour doesn’t mean we lose Nofoaluma
They play opposite wings
I know many dont agree with Mansour coming but he will add to our defence and experience
Competition will be a good thing for our club

Only downside is hopefully it doesn’t cost us young blokes like Talau. He can negotiate elsewhere from end of next season I think.

Should have swapped JAC for TT, now we’ll end up with a washed up Mansour, so WT

JAC would have broken the bank, Mansour won’t. If JAC didn’t cut it as fullback, he would have screwed our salary cap no less than Reynolds. He’s a great winger, but an unknown as fullback.

And on a side note, Mansour is not going to be on the news for posting dumb antics on Instagram.

We will have to deal with Mansour’s Guido-mode cringe photos though of him in his all-white get-up, resplendent in those teenybopper 3/4 pants and boat shoes! Bloke wouldn’t of looked out of place on Acropolis Now.

A lot of fashion police on here.

Laurie included as a package deal with Mansour. Don’t be surprised if Parra or even the Bulldogs come swooping in last minute though…

You should quote your sources or you are not any better that buzz. Instagram or not. “Someone one the money” is not a source.

By that reasoning he’d be no better than The Pom.

Mansour is a complete waste of cash and a roster spot. Ridiculous rumour and if true Pascoe needs to be shown the door

I agree that he’s not as quick as he used to be but his defensive tackle efficiency is at 81%, Nofa by comparison is 69%. The average for first grade wingers in the NRL is 74%.

The Sauce would bring us some stability and crafty options on our left edge attack, so I’m all for it if he signs.

Mansour is basically Nofa…with much better D.

I would take him any day over Nofa for 100-200 less.

Woah woah woah. Is this 2015? Am I dreaming? I don’t know how you can see the things Dave did last year and say Mansour is as good. He’d need to be 500k cheaper to be in the convo.

But if he’s signed to replace Jennings it’s not that bad. You know what you’re getting and we have quite a lot of young players who will benefit from seeing another pro do what he does. Good character as wel plus he won’t get games if he doesn’t deserve it.

“Was linked to Penrith but they showed little interest in him”. This makes no sense whatsoever.

That’s what I thought… Author added his little bulldust fantasy

Or doing Penrith a favour by distancing them from him. Either way, a head scratcher.
