Always next year 🐯
They let go chambers and curtis Scott they couldn’t have cap problems
That’s what I was thinking! Croft and Vunivalu went as well and I don’t think they’ve signed anyone of note, so I can’t see how they’d be having cap issues.
Cam Smith signed a one year extension for $1,500,000
That’s why he took so long to sign on for another year because Storm knew they would need to release players
Highest paid player in history now
Now storm are struggling with the cap
Let’s see if this rumour spreads
Need to get you a gig with Fox Sports
THE Wests Tigers are considering reuniting the Leilua brothers, with Luciano declaring it’s a “100 per cent option” for older brother Joey to join him at Concord this year.
I think if we were to somehow pick up AD for FB and JAC is out of the question I think we should look at BJ from Raiders. They are trying to sign there big 3 guys currently and need to get funds so would be a great time to approach. He would have the incentive of playing with his brother and feel Madge would help get the rubbish out of the game…
Unite the brothers!
I don’t understand what the problem is? How much is a good specialist full back worth? At $500k he is half the price of Teddy. This is all hustle and jostle. Ok, keep negotiating but get him here before 29th Feb.
He’s not a specialist anything. Prefer aetkins edwards or Meaney at the $200-$350k range for fullback. Better cap hit. Issue is with seeing him as a 5/8 cant really pay him 500k for that as well with reynolds On the books. And can’t play him as a utility with mbye on the books that Would be 1.3 mil on a busted 5/8 and an unproven 5/8 or 1.15 mil on 2 utilities. Would be terrible cap mis management
Wonder if Meaney is happy playing on the wing these days
If Pascoe keeps trying to play hardball and we miss out on Douehi for the sake of $100k it will be a bad move for the club. He’s an excellent player that hasn’t yet reached his prime. He will increase our chances of making the 8 in 2020. No point going into March with $1m in the bank.
You’d be getting him for under 400k for 2020 as Souths have already paid him 3 months. Assuming the 500k figure is accurate.
Centre (in order)
Can see him with another club before R1. Stayed back in Canberra whilst the rest of the squad is doing preseason in Qld…
Is there a plausible reason for this? Injured?
From Raiders forum… as poster says, doesn’t add up.
The whole BJ is staying in Canberra away from the team and our training camp to get some work in his legs makes absolutely zero sense
