    Well the good news is that the money we were budgeting for Bird will buy 1 very good player, or 2 decent prospects.

    That sucks. I was hoping we'd get him. Let's spend the money we were gonna give him on a quality fullback not spreading it around on nuffies like Heinington, Douglas and Fensom.

    At least the Knights can move on now and throw their plan B in to place. I think we dodged a bullet there.

    The fact is we going to end up with a team full of $150k-250k players.
    No decent players are going to sign with us at their market value.
    We finished with consecutive woonden spoons.
    Browny needs to realise he needs to pay overs to get any above decent player to the club.

    Have you just forgotten what the last five years of paying overs has done to us? Misery and failure to sum it up.

    Paying over for the right players.
    The fact is no above decent player will come to our club at their market value.

    I think, going off the Catalans website, the final 2 years of his contract are for an assistant coaching role so not as crazy as first thought. Anything more than a 2-year deal with us would have been dumb. Luckily after missing out, we should now have the money to buy someone that can make a difference, whether we find someone now or wait till players start getting forced out of clubs during the season.

    So they're paying him 550k a year to be an assistant coach? That's even worse

    He is just the guy to lead the younger players to a dedicated life of hoolaginism no doubt.

    He should of came here if he wanted a coaching gig. We hand out coaching roles to ex players like it's going out of fashion.
