    I did read somewhere recently that we had 28 players signed for next yr which leaves 2 spots to b filled.Personally Id prefer to sign Moylan coz he'd automatically b our most superior player in the spine & would dramatically escalate our ability to make the 8 in '18.

    A lot of horse trading will not get serious to after the GF and the World cup might push it back further

    You never know what is going on behind the scenes, Parra could be looking at a player, lets say from Canberra and are willing to let another player go to accommodate the deal. Still plenty of horse trading to go

    Manly don't need him as the spine is there strength although I could c them releasing Green to sign Moylan.

    Rona must still be a chance, although there is a lot of uncertainty still about that Western Force team, with billionaire Andrew Forrest threatening to set up a rebel union comp.

    I wouldn't waste anymore time on Rona. Give him an ultimatum either sign now or the offer is rescinded. WT are strong enough, we cant be held up looking for increasingly scarce signing opportunities waiting for him to figure out what he wants to do. The union thing has got along way to go before resolved and the ARU will keep Rona on the hook with test squad selection. Enough WT.

    This shows shows you how retarded our front office have been. In any other business they'd starve.

    How damn bloody lucky is Suli.The kids gone ok but geez he ain't worth anywhere near 450k yet.f**king McDonnell & the dogs sucked us into paying overs with Suli.I hope that over the term of his contract we get a commensurate return on investment.

    The thing that so sucks with the handling of JAC is everyone except Taylor & our admin could c that he had the invaluable X -factor that made his Retention so damn obvious.

    We r bereft of the X factor for '18 & we desperately need to find it somewhere whether it's LoLo having a breakout yr at fullback I don't know but we sure as hell need someone to give us an edge particularly in tight games.

    Suli is not on $450k a year, he is on 300k a year (1.2 million for 4 years). I would take JAC over Suli any day of the week though

    Suli was chased by 3-4 other clubs. People saw the $1.2mil contract but didn't realize it also included an upgrade for this year. As BJ05 says it's $300k not $450k. $300k for a decent first grade center isn't that much anymore, which I believe he already is. With the cap increase the average wage is going to be $313k.

    On Moylan if we hadn't of signed Reynolds I'd absolutely want him, if we got him he would instantly be our best half. However as far as fullbacks go I honestly would prefer Tui over him. Tui played all his juniours at 1 and will be a better fit for our team there imo. Moylan is a great ball player but his actual fullback play i.e catching bombs, positioning, bringing the ball back etc is pretty terrible.

    Anyways I think he'll end up staying at Penrith.

    4 yrs @ 750k/yr for Reynolds is going to b a monumental blunder.I just don't get y IC offered him such a generous contract.There was no necessity to b so eager to sign Reynolds and to blow the dogs offer out of the water for an unexceptional 5/8 beggars belief !

    I guess time will tell, but I thought he was a great purchase and perhaps led the way for others to come.
