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
Thats how

Let’s see if this rumour spreads 🤥

Need to get you a gig with Fox Sports

“He was in the same position I was” (at the Dragons). Kinda sounds like he’s speaking as though the deal is already done?

That’s what I was thinking whilst reading the article.

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)
BJ leluia

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

Adam Doueihi is weighing up his immediate future after South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett told him he is free to chase a starting fullback position elsewhere after making it clear Latrell Mitchell will get first crack at the club’s No.1 jersey.

Bennett admires Doueihi and is happy for him to see out the remaining two years of his deal, but also informed him on Wednesday he would not block any early release from Redfern.

Only two days earlier Bennett said he faced some “hard decisions” about how to squeeze the likes of Doueuhi into a back line that now features Mitchell, Campbell Graham, Braidon Burns, Dane Gagai and James Roberts.

Doueihi was given his NRL debut by Wests Tigers coach Michael Maguire and is a Balmain junior. The Tigers also need a starting fullback and have well north of $600,000 still in their salary cap for this season, but have so far baulked at Doueihi’s price tag, given his current deal is heavily back-ended.

The Herald understands Doueihi stands to collect about $500,000 this year and even more in 2021. Souths do not have to move on any players to be salary cap compliant and it remains to be seen if they will pick up any of Doueihi’s tab should he leave.

Adam Doueihi could be the man to make way after Latrell Mitchell’s arrival at South Sydney.

Tigers boss Justin Pascoe told the Herald on Tuesday: “Having cap space at this time of year allows us the opportunity to be strategic and leverage off other clubs who might have challenges with their ca space.”

Bennett took one look at Mitchell train on Tuesday and was clearly convinced his star recruit would more than make the successful transition to fullback in just eight weeks.

Doueihi was initially told by Bennett he would be playing five-eighth, only for Cody Walker to sign a two-year extension in December. He was then informed by the supercoach he would be the starting fullback, only for Souths to the sign Mitchell.

“Some of the boys here have played some great football for us, but the end result is we couldn’t walk past the opportunity to take Latrell,” Bennett said on Monday. “This club is about success. We want to have the best team we possibly can here and we believe he [Mitchell] is going to add to what we already have.”

Doueihi’s best hope is securing a utility role off the bench, which he could easily do given his ability to play anywhere in the back line. A tall playmaker who impressed at fullback towards the end of last season, Doueihi would even start a few games during the Origin period with Dane Gagai a Queensland regular and Cody Walker and Mitchell a chance to earn a NSW Blues recall.

Such is the depth in the outside backs at Souths that it was easy to forget Bryson Goodwin had also returned to the club on a one-year deal.

Before he made his NRL debut under Maguire at Souths in 2018, Doueihi spoke glowingly about the coach and said: “Madge was pretty keen on me and he was probably the main reason why I did come here.”

The Tigers have three spots to fill on their roster, including two before the start of the season. They remain hopeful Parramatta will release teen prop Stefano Utoikamanu, who they have already signed from 2021.

Souths continue to hold out hope they can land their own front-rower, Jai Arrow, a year early from the Gold Coast. Should they land Arrow, the foundation club will be among the favourits to take the NRL title.

The Titans are open to granting Arrow an early release, but only if it is worth their while.

Thanks for posting that, hopefully we get him.

How the hell is he on 500 000 though!!!

Souths can chip in some if he comes to us.

Ridiculous and it says he’s on more in 2021…
