Re Doueihi…he would not be on a lot at all with Souths. Probably 200 or less.

And has two years to run.

They would be under no pressure to release him cap wise.

But…the issue will be holding back a player’s career.

He is a FB / half and all those spots are gone. He also could set up his family by joining a team that needs a FB/ half and can pay him much more.

So Souths will have to look at whether they block the kids career path or not now they have no spot for him in the first 13.

What’s to stop Douhei do a Matterson to Souffs…

I couldn’t stand the arrogant, smug look on Richardson’s face at the LM signing presser…would love to punch that double chin through the back of his throat…

I’m leaving on a cruise today. 14 nights. I’ll be off the grid for the majority of that time. If I sail back into the harbour 2 weeks today and we still have not signed anyone, I might swim back out to sea.

Watch-out for the Sharkies

AD from souths would be great for us. You only have a small window of opportunity in the NRL and you can’t sit back and wait for LM to fail. AD would be stupid if he chose to play understudy for LM. The 2nd year option for Souths regarding LM is a farce and the only way the NRL could turn a blind eye to the dodgy deal. LM will be at souths for at least the next 4 years.

I don’t think LM will necessarily push Douehi out - I think LM will be playing fullback till Wayne is happy enough with his fitness to play there. Just my opinion, he won’t start the season there. LM in his current state is far from being able to play fullback.

LM and his ego says otherwise…he can do anything

We have all the money but no one wants to come here.

I think we should temper this summation. There were very few off contract players this off season, the majority of players prefer to stay with their current club plus the Tigers need to be selective about their signings, not just grab anyone. Ever the optimist, I think our opportunities will come. We just need to be patient.

Fair, and it’s 100% frustration from my end.

But after Matterson (and letting go of Esan) we really needed a win, and so far it’s been disappointing. Luciano is a good signing don’t get me wrong, but we lack a game breaker and I was hoping we’d get one this off-season.

Still plenty of time to go.

My Biggest Frustration is the fact we released Matterson & Marsters without getting anything back or having replacements in place. I think if we played hardball we would of got something or held off until we had replacements but also understand why we did this.
I think we will regret the Marsters one as he was injured last year and him been fully fit will be back to his best…

We did not get nothing. We received full value of his contract plus 3-4 months of this yers salary which the club would be up for while negotiating a suitable release deal.
So on my maths that’s around +$500k.
Hardly nothing.

i think what he meant is that we released two of our starting first grade players and have been unable to use the money to strengthen our lineup. Leilua is a fine signing but he is not top line. Not meaning to be critical of the club but this offseason’s recruitment (to date) has been a failure.

“to date” being the operative word…yes, but lets judge in March when the seasons proper starts

How does Dylan smith go? Any chance he will be our fullback?

Not even up to CC standard…will be a star in the Ron Massie Cup

If we can get AJ on a
Subsidised contract why not

I think a meeting was set up but latrell didn’t turn up

That’s correct, but LM drove all the way to Coffs for dinner with Rusty… clearly LM had no interest in the WT…

So LM has rejected Souffs offer… hmmm
