    4 years for a contract is the absolute max, even 3 years is too long in some instances.

    I doubt it’s a money thing with him, he’s a country lad / home boy that wants to go home.

    What we can offer are his mates, a successful club, a good lifestyle & the fullback spot in the future.

    where do these figures come from?

    He's not on 850K this year, he's not worth 1 million and there's not one shred of evidence the club is offering that. When is the last time the club paid overs for a player?

    Why do people think they're about to now?

    He's a young kid with probably a 10 year Origin career ahead of him and has all the makings of an elite fullback. That being said I wouldn't guarantee him the fullback jersey. If that's what it comes down to he will go.

    I hope we keep him and wouldn't want to lose him to get Barba.

    He wont accept that anyway. Hes been given this pay packet purely on potential. For 6 years it would have to be 1.5 million.
    Even then, would we be subjected to the home sick story every 2 weeks for 6 years? No thanks.

    $850k is the number being bandied around.

    It may have started as the Defer exaggeration number & now its stuck.

    What do you think it is...what have you heard?

    He may well be on that much total...wouldn’t surprise me if he has $150 to $200k in 3rd party’s.

    I think we sent a message with Maloney, I hope we do it with Holmes. Val’s a great player but let another club play overs.

    Ponga has been in the comp 5 minutes.

    He’s potentially a great player but there’s no guarantees of any position.

    He’s already been told he’s in next year. Wont be wing. So 1, 6 or 7.
