BA says we have 20 under contract in 2019.
How do you interpret that Pou ?
I guess the only way to interpret that is that they’re 4 unannounced signings which may include some promotions from the 20s
DA, Stone, GL, Maloney and Salmon all on top 30 contracts in 2018 not development contracts ?
He also said with the 20 players contract comment, they have a few players coming to the end of his career.
It would seem that Hoffman might be better off finding a new club, notwithstanding his 2019 contract.
Maybe by 20 he meant 16
I wouIdnt let Hoffman go until we sort out the Norman situation. If Norman goes, I wouId probably keep him.
Salmon was at least announced as being a three years signing, so we know he is contracted for next year. Aukafolau, Leleisiuao, Mahoney and Stone never had their contract length announced but there's no reason to think they are off contract. I'm certain they would all be in next year's squad but since there's nothing official I can't include them beyond this year until announced otherwise.
Mahoney is here next year source = he told me
Type of contract? "not sure" source = he told me
That’s not a source that’s heresay. Probably gets his info from the same place as Avenger. Next week he will tell you he is off contract
So who is the team replacing Edwards with? They would have let him go for no reason..
Also they are trying to get Scott medically retired so.must be using the cash for someone?!?
I suppose we'll find out over the off season. No reason to waste a cap slot now unless we can get a quality player, which is probably unlikely.
We should put his money towards signing TPJ or Koroisau/Segeyaro IMO. Or even Klemmer if that pans out by some miracle.
I suppose medically retiring Scott frees up enough to potentially top up someone already on the books this season, but I'm not sure Kenny would have enough left for the year to make much difference. Or if we even have any of his money left. His money will be very useful next season though
Next year is sounding promising, (great recruits permitting) but it usually does. I'm the eternal optimist but geezus H f**king Christ! When will we win it? Sometimes it feels like we never will.
Junior Paulo is promising but as yet, what else is promising about next year? I really don't think BA is looking for a quality hooker. He loves Kaysa and Will Smith is already signed as our back up.
Are there any wingers available that aren't named Brett Morris and that want to play wing?( Oates wants to play 2nd row)
Norman is a knob head but who are we going to replace him with if we get rid of him? Gutherson isn't a half and please God not Austin! Hayne maybe?
Whats looking promising is that we have some cash to spend and hopefully some decent juniors to blood.
Buckets of cash to spend and around 10 free roster slots?
You obviously didn't read Pou's epic analysis of how much cash we probably have for next year, ie. it might not be as much as we think
Every other year we hear about our great juniors coming through. They rarely materialise.
What would that deathrider know? I'll stay optimistic until I see otherwise.
A GF win would unite his joint like its never known. How fukn good would that be?
