    We backended Gower's 1-year deal. He gets paid heaps more in August than he did in March. We just did it out of habit apparently.

    We only signed him for one year but managed to back-end it all into next year.

    I wish he would f**k off. He is cramping my style.

    Sio is the best winger at the club.

    He should have been resigned by the club before they even thought about Resigning Vai

    They were at final stages of negotiations a week or two ago. The fact there hasn't been an announcement yet is a little bit concerning for mine.
    Gower has been a standout this year, and a must for our team moving forward.

    In regards to Inu, the dogs are the road block at the moment.

    They want us to take over the full contract but we won't budge. If Sio and Paulo are not re-signed we may change our mind.

    Toutai was already contracted for next year when he signed the extension and Goodall was already contracted for next year as well. Sio is off contract so he's the one who goes.

    Toutai and Goodall would also be on less than Sio, meaning we'll have more to spend on other positions.

    What you are talking about is balance and I totally agree. If Sio goes and we are able to snag a specialist and experienced goalkicking centre like Inu that is a better use of our cap.

    You're convinced we're after Inu?

    Hasn't Goodall been playing centre and going ok? It's hard to say if letting sio go for Vai is the right move until we know exactly what each player is asking. Sio also covers fullback.

    I reckon letting Sio is more related to having hunt under contract until 2016 then Vai.

    We are at the right price. My mate is best buddies with a Dogs board member. They are OK for us to take him at his full contract amount. I heard that they took Loko for the full amount but the papers reckon we are paying some which I think is bullshit. Inu is the perfect replacement for Tonga with the added benefit of goalkicking.

    I read somewhere that we've got no cap space left.
