RE: Signing Suggestions & Rumours

Get the cheque book out for Harry Grant!
We’re gonna have a cash flexibility of nearly 2.5 mil if Mbye leaves…. free to talk to clubs November 1st
Grant was idolised and closed to worshipped at the Tigers by us fans, goes back to Melbourne and even when he was fit he was benched… I remember one game he was named to start then a late change brought him to the bench, Brandon Smith seems to be very very close to the boys at Melbourne and they’re a culture based team
If we throw 1mil a year at him (I’d do it in a heartbeat) for like 5 years and just be aggressive…. Melbourne would be forced to match it or get close and with a fall back option of Brandon Smith they may be inclined to not go with us and may just choose to retain Smith on less
Grant will be the best 9 in this game for the next decade or so and would be worth every penny, we’ve had Mbye on 900k…. I think Grant at 1mil would be a major upgrade
Dogs and Dragons have drained themselves out of the race, and I can’t see any other teams with cap space that could go with us in terms of matching the deal…. All these players signing with rivals may be a blessing in disguise as they have no more cap space left
Then from Grant we can start building our team and it will help our chances of acquiring other stars as we’ll still have a lot of money left, in addition to the junior pathways this club has and the solid young core also
Come back Grant and be the man to lead this young side to the finals as our future captain!
