    If rumours are true about the amount of clubs that need to move players on, there isnt going to be many lining up for him. id go no higher than 650-700k on him, and if they dont want to let us have him for that put that money into blair

    That's the figure , no more- either Blair or Graham ( doggy neck big concern ) they bring the experience to the props required.

    Haven't they both lead their respective countries ?

    Wasn't it the Knights favourite coach - Wayne (just joking ) who said props aren't worth more than $150k

    Doggies are trying to off load a heap of "stars". Both Morris boys, Mbye, Graham & Eastwood were all named...

    Morris btothers = pass. Rather not overspend on a position we dont need filling

    Mbye = no thank you.

    Eastwood = not needed

    Graham = before injury hell yes. But now its at right $$$ with dogs paying minimum 300k

    We dont need to pay over 300k for a dummy half imo. We have levi and Buhrer + hopefully one of Rein/Griffin or at worst Lichaa for much less who will provide decent enough cover

    No to Mbye for me, we don't need dummy half, we have a bunch of them we can run with, probably the best covered position we have next year.

    Put our money in to props now.

    After thinking Graham would be the perfect signing at start of the season I don't think it would be now. He has looked past it since coming back from injury.

    Making the Burgess twins look like the world's best and second best props tonight with all the arm grabs.

    Just like that he scores a try... Still not sold on him though as sad as it is to say as he has been one of the best props of the past decade.

    Dogs whole pack has been pretty poor the last 10wks. His come back from a neck injury and still finding his feet.

    Everyone said Tamou was past it after his neck problems and yet he started to dominate again with the cows pack.

    I feel the dogs just have nothing in the tank atm and to much on the minds off the field to perform well at all.

    Regardless of whether he'll ever get back to 100% or not, it's clear Graham could do with a fresh start. He just looks like a defeated man these days, not the passionate rabid dog he was a few years ago. No doubt starting over again at a new club with young kids would regenerate him a bit.

    He is also a lot younger then Graham and hid behind the 1-2 punch of Scott and Taumalolo. So often you'd see him take the 3rd hit up of the set.

    Getting found out a little now having to be the leader of the pack but I'm sure he will come good again next year.

    I'm a huge fan of James Graham but he has not been the same since coming back from injury. Maybe a change in clubs will help him but is a huge risk consider the price tag. If I had the choice I would much rather Leilani Latu if he become available
