    Graham already looks like his bulked up over the summer and I still don't reckon he'd be done filling out so I completely agree with you. Could go from centre to second row in a couple of seasons.

    A little disappointed about Jennings but hey, that's footy I guess. He is a loss as he had a great 2018 but I think anyone would've scored most of his tries last year and we have guys that can step up into that position.

    I’m still holding out hope until there’s an official announcement. They use the words “is expected to”. Is this the press just “assuming” that if Lowe is coming we have to loose someone, and “assuming” that someone will be Jennings.

    I’m not sure any other club will seriously consider him as a fullback either though.

    But losing Jennings doesn’t free up salary cap space as he isn’t currently contracted

    Exactly. You’re right Jennings is currently in our top 30 but worth nothing, so we actually only have a top 29+Jennings. Unfortunately Jennings won’t play for free so we need to add his value if we want to make a top 30.

    So then for example: we currently have 29 players. Our cap is 1000. Say we’ve spent 700. Jennings cost 400 so we can’t add him, he’s gone. But Lowe cost 250, we can add him, plus freed up 50 cap space.

    I'm not entirely sure about that. Jennings is in the squads top 30 and has been training with us it's hard to believe he's doing it for free. I assume we'd be paying him the original contract we offered.

    He’s probably on a train and trial contract, a really good one. I don’t think they count towards the cap. Although he’s on our clubs internet page top 30, he wouldn’t be in our offical NRL registered top 30 because those require NRL “approved” contracts.

    PS: I’m still holding out hope, until announced. Who knows what wheeling and dealing is going on.

    Jennings appears all but gone. Apparently he's signed a contract with the Tigers but it's just waiting for NRL approval.

    Ahh okay I see what you’re saying. I guess that makes things interesting if he leaves. If the Lowe rumours are true we would have a 17/13 split between forwards and backs respectively.

    17/13 is a bit scary hey? Apparently Sironen can play backs, he played 5/8 2nd half last week, and Douheli can play Hooker-Backrow at a pinch. That evens it out a bit.

    I did read somewhere that the club is helping Jenko out through this period.

    It depends on whether George signs with parra or not.

    I would definitely not sacrifice George for Jennings. Jennings will be forgotten in a couple of years while George is coming into his best years as a prop.
