    Former Broncos players doing their bit too talking him down in the media to lower his market value...

    To be fair it doesn’t help with Captain Bennett Jr is phoning it in and waiting to be dropped so he can join his dad at South Sydney.

    The question isn't what is he worth noiw, or is he worth a million, but what will he be worth in 2 years time.

    Teams pay players on potential now, not just what they are doing now. He has shown enough of his potential that he will command 600k+ on the market as he is a rare commodity at the moment.

    Much like signing Ponga, which was a risk at what we paid, he may end up signing cheap depending on how he goes over his next contract.

    Some low figures being thrown around

    I’ll be surprised to see him sign for anything less than 800K per season.

    Kirk Reynoldson actually tried to con the Storm into giving him more money at the time. Apparently he had already agreed verbally to a deal with them but we were desperate and upped our offer at the 11th hour.
    Him and his manager then went back to the Storm and asked for more money if they were going to match it and the Storm said no we had already agreed to this deal and were privately fuming about what he did.
    Of course never reported by stains like Buzz at the time because they were trying to make him a ‘good guy’ who didn’t care about the money.

    But on the topic of money the fourth optional year was 196,500 (we offered $150k guaranteed that fourth year which he said no to) which is probably money at the time that you’d give to a guy looking to break into rep footy sooner.

    Now that Inglis has retired, uncle Wayne will have the funds for TPJ.

    For mine, they're welcome to him. He's good but not worth the money he seems to be demanding. Clearly 5/8 is a big hole for us, so I'd prefer we spend the money there. We have enough backrowers coming through (Stone, Jones and Fermor), and forwards (Momoisea, Saulo and Alifa, for example). Crossland and Randall are good halves prospects long-term, but a dynamic half to partner Pearce sooner would be brilliant.

    It will be interesting to see the team selection this week. Brown wanted a running 5/8 and only changed it as KP apparently wanted 5/8. Watson is playing again now and Lino hasn't done a lot there.

    Brown mentions Lino being very underdone.

    If he puts Watson back there rather than persist with Lino surely that signals he is moving back to a running 5/8 rather than a ball playing 5/8.

    I honestly don't think Brown knows what he wants.
