    I just watched the highlights of last nights game, what was Blair thinking passing the ball on his own line in the first hitup of the game? He gave away the quickest ever try in NRL history. And he made 37m again.
    Why do we want this bloke?
    He also ended his own hookers season with a late dog shot.

    He got the same meters last week when Broncos dominated. He also threw an offload that went to the other team

    I will be really dissapointed if we sign him, especially to anything over 400k/year

    $400k for a 29 year old that has played tonnes of internationals as a starting prop. Yep.

    LOL @ people wanting the sign Graham with a bad neck and a huge history of injuries

    Huge history?

    Since coming to the NRL Graham averages 22 games a season. Blair over the same period averages 23.

    Dragons seem to be getting Graham for 500k if you believe reports, while we get Blair for 800k.
    If the numbers were the other way around it might just be a fair deal, but on those numbers, we are getting screwed.

    No one knows the exact amount, though like always u can get within the 100k amount per yr.... so from all reports its close to 700k per yr.
    His not worth it.

    Would be very happy to get Graham for same money we are supposedly offering Blair.
    Doesn't look like we will get Graham and now we are doubting Blair, if get neither who can we get?

    Who knows? With plenty of clubs over the cap, not to mention the usual panic clubs have to sign new players after the post season autopsy, one thing is for sure there will be plenty of options.

    Or we can be like the Tiges and sign players for the sake of it.

    So far we have ponga, guerra, skd, watson, ese ese and moga by being patient, happy to see what opens opens up over the off season and if we have to run with a prop rotation of Dan, Ese, Jake and King I wouldn't be upset.

    Where are the reports we are paying $800k for Blair, even Brown isn't that desperate.
    $600k sounds about right with the Warriors maybe offering more
