    The sad thing is I have no doubt the meeting this week of NSW clubs ex us and Tigers will result in a powerplay that causes a massive about face by the nrl and they will get away with it.

    I heard something on one of the footy shows this morning that all they need is 5 clubs to refuse the 9.1mil cap for there to be real issues with the nrl getting it through. Also heard that the dogs and co probably can't get the 5 clubs worth of support

    Agreed but the Dogs situation is so bad that it surely can't be ignored by other clubs nor can it be brushed under the huge piece of carpet they have at NRL heaquarters?????

    I think they're all kidding themselves if they think the NRL can truly afford more money in the cap going forward into the next TV deal. I've said it before, I think the next deal will be flat or even less.

    From what I understand most other clubs' cap situation is salvageable through a bit of re-structuring, dogs on the other hand are absolutely ******

    Most likely just wishful thinking but the account has had some good mail on Knights signings in the past.

    You're right, he has had good mail in the past. Let me dream for now.


    1. Ponga
    2. Ross
    3. Moga
    4. SKD
    5. Sio
    6. Watson
    7. Lamb

    8. Ese'ese
    9. Buhrer
    10. Klemmer
    11. Sione
    12. Guerra
    13. Blair

    14. Levi
    15. D Saifiti
    16. J Saifiti
    17. Barnett

    That would be dropping our Maloney interest.

    Now that's a pack that could really open up some space for Watson and ponga to weave their magic footwork.

    The good thing about that is that our forward pack intensity would probably pick up when our bench rotation gets onto the field

    Not sure I want or that we need Blair if we could get Klemmer. Klemmer would be immense. I think a team sporting Daifiti, Jaifiti, Klemmer and Ese'ese can afford a Barnett or some such at lock.

    I'd love to see us have the luxury of ballplaying/skillful backrowers over workhorses/hit up merchants though. Maybe Blair could fit that description instead.

    If we got Klemmer, we would have the best pack in the comp, i'd actually go into everyday legitimately believing we could win, that pack would make Ponga, Lamb, Watson, Levi and Moga absolutely lethal.

    Yes Blair looks like a bit of a luxury but apparently we can afford those these days. And I don't see anywhere else in our roster that needs urgent addressing. Blair and Barnett would likely split the 80 minutes pretty evenly anyway.

    If he is as good a leader as they say(and I will back Brown and Mooney on that) and he brings us some ballplaying and a grubby edge then I will take it especially at lock where his lack of metres is less of an issue.

    Man that side is phenomenal, especially considering where the team was at the start of last year

    If we run out with that side next year and play with the same heart as this year, I'm expecting no less than a premiership

    Our spine is way too green to be near a premiership

    Has anyone heard that the Dogs have found four other friends (clubs) who have agreed to take a proposal for the cap to be at 9.6 million to the NRL?

    Must have happened over the lunch the greedy pricks arranged today. The lunch Toddles palmed off.

    So who are the other 4 clubs?

    Just a what if question.
    What if Hayne gets shopped around?

    Hayne is not worth any more than $600k to any club but there is no way he'd take that low an offer

    He will be at the Titans or off to Frog Rugby
