    Who are the Dogs losing upfront to justify the move?

    Seems like a bit of an excessive purchase.

    You're right you should be butt hurt about it.

    The Bulldogs need a fullback and halves player so what do they do, buy a prop, because it's not like they didn't have enough of them. Peret is your first choice fullback, so you buy a prop..... [email protected]$

    Should have a fullback soon if you believe the media. I assume we will use Mbye or Templeman as a halfback in the future

    Jeeeeze thats a lotta cash for a prop who's only just made origin. Good player, no doubt. Worth more than a Scott, Tamou, Galle etc...? Hmmm

    Hope for the dogs sake it doesn't turn out to be another t-rex

    Geez that's a lot for a prop and a fairly unproven one at that. That's not much less than Cameron Smith and for a team stacked with forwards no less. What are they planning to do with their 1, 6, 7 and 9 which is pretty damn poor right now.

    'Reported' that he'll be on $700k a year, not sure how accurate that is but is it a wise move signing a bloke who will be 29 when the new contract kicks in to a 4 year big money deal?

    If the reported Graham and Fafita contract $$$$$ are close to the mark then the Dogs have just under 25% of their 2015 cap invested in two front rowers.

    There must be a fair few players on close to minimum wage over there.

    They would be backended just like Dessie did at Sea Eagles ala Glenn Stewart.

    The NRL hasn't condoned backended contracts for a couple of years now.

    They're no where near as prevalent as they used to be and there's no way they'd be allowing the Bulldogs to back end them as heavily as Des did at the Sea Eagles and plenty of other clubs used to.

    Fux me why Griffin resigned. Another 4 years on the bench at best? He's 1st grade material somewhere.
