    Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad from the Warriors should be a target for a budget buy for the tigers.
    if possible see if he can come this year... and play him on the wing.
    He is the best fullback in NSW cup.

    If the Warriors don't re-sign him but continue to play forwards on the wing like Maumalo I will be super pissed.

    CNK reminds me of Nightingale in a way. Has speed, but not the fastest, has strength, but not the strongest, but damned if he isn't smarter than most of the players he comes up against and anticipation and awareness is something you just can't teach.

    So the Dragons halves will take up over 2 million of the salary cap next year.

    They are definitely going to have to rely on juniors on cheap contracts for a lot of positions going forward.

    But they finally have a decent halves combo.

    Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said that Matulino will be a great addition to the playing squad.

    “Ben has been a part of the Warriors and Kiwi squads for a number of years and has shown himself to be a leader both on and off the field,” said Pascoe. “We look forward to him bringing his experience to Wests Tigers for the coming three seasons.

    “It’s great to have a player of Ben’s experience, both in the NRL and International arenas, decide to commit his future to Wests Tigers,” he said.

    not bad, considering the boost in cap will make a no frills/border line plodder worth around the 300k mark now.

    whatever matulino's $ are with the tigers, a year contract for 28 year old prop who has been sub average for at least 2 seasons is a massive risk

    doubt any other club would have been prepared to give him more than a 1-2 year deal

    the only post i made about matulino in your forum was how it was a balls-up your club had claimed his signing when the player and his existing club claimed no deal had been done.

    would love to see whatever else you've just made up.

    It is , Weststigers reached out to their massive list of rich contacts and Croyden Park Dogfoods has chipped in to make up the shortfall.
