    Don't get used to Ross & Pete mate, Ross is off to the broncs next year on a contract that makes ours look like drinking silver

    skd and elliot have played in the same team not sure if they lined up on same side or not. From memory every time i saw elliot play for the chooks it was in the centres.

    i think the broncs is one place rossy wouldnt go after bennett told him he was never good enough for NRL. On top of that bennetts ego wouldnt allow him to sign him after saying that.

    I only picked the Broncos as they're the only team I can think of with heaps of salary cap space left ;)

    Lets clarify we didn't let. We offered $700k and Rabbitohs have offered $850k plus so we needed to offer $900k, we got outbid. Its sad but club did what it could without going into Hagan territory.

    Like Uate his one of the ex sons we'll cheer on for every bit of success they have(hopefully not against us.)

    Dw I adored the bloke but I guess I'm just not used to this mid season signing bullshit, I say they let him play for Rabbitohs this year as im sure they'll need him. Let our backline move on and blood some youth

    I should've worded it differently, I'm shattered he's going. I hold nothing against him for his decision & am thankful for his services & passion towards our club

    Wish list:

    Im reading that South's have offered 850k + TPA for gagai. Some of these guys are playing reserve grade. I wonder if we offered them all 350k and a starting position if we could land any.

    Prop
    G Burgess
    Kikau

    CTR/WNG
    Mead
    Skd
    Gela moseby

    Half
    Codi Walker
    Kodi nikorima

    1. Ponga
    2. Mead
    3. Skd
    4. Ross
    5. Gela moseby
    6. Walker
    7. Nikorima
    8. Gurgess
    9. Levi
    10. D saifiti
    11. Buhrer
    12. Mata'utia
    13. Barnett

    14. Kikau
    15. J saifiti
    16. Yates
    17. Stone

    Its a bit of a made up wishlist more than actually expecting any of these guys will come. I'm just not sure spending 1.3 million a season on any one player will be worth it. Would rather 4 good players than 1 james graham at the end of his career.

    There's still some off-contract talent out there, a lot of these guys could offer good value on a 200-300k deal when they can't get a run at their clubs. A couple old experienced guys that could do a job for a year too. Get on it Browny.

    I seriously reckon we should go for Lawrence, very underrated.

    Mosby re-signed this week mate.

    Franky yes please! Loved him for a decade.... 34 i think next yr? But would offer twice as much as tupou does.

    All for Joe Ofahengaue, Patty Vaivai, Zane Tetevano, Adam Elliot, Agnus Paasi, Aaron, Grey, SKD,

    Be lucky to get any tho :brickwall:

    The leadership group curse is still in effect, with Gagai gone, potentially only Sione, Pete & Buhrer left next year!

    Milne is a no brainer for me, also really impressed with Ofahengaue although I couldn't imagine Broncos letting him walk ......

    Also Terepo from Parra is a hard man, could be a good pickup if the price is right. Brown is still obviously playing the waiting game for a marquee to hit the market ....

    He better lower the standard of player he wants then... some signing at all would do "at the minute"
