    Handyman, where did you hear Cody has been told we don't want him or he can go? That's the first time I've heard that.

    Are saying that Souths are trying to sign the best centre in the game, to play him out of position in either fullback or 5/8 and then let an excellent 5/8 (Walker) who by your calculations would be on less, go to another club?

    I’m okay with spending a million for Latrell. He’s the only player I believe has anything close to GI’s ability so I think that would be smart recruitment plus he’s still very young. He could become a leader at Souths.

    i don’t think spending a million on David Fifita is a smart move though. Yes he’s a great player but he’s not a Taumalolo yet. He hasn’t really proven anything besides he’s big and he can bust a tackle. I think it would be foolish to throw such big money at him.

    I'd be careful if I was the club. This bloke hit rep footy this year and his play for the team was excellent, except for a few games he looked down through injury and disappointment as well I think. But unless they've signed a natural five eighth from somewhere else, I wouldn't be in a hurry to March him out the gate.

    He isn't coming to play 5/8. If he does come, he's in the neckline somewhere until he gets use to our play then he will switch to fullback. (IF HE COMES).

    He isnt worth 800k latrell is worth the mill, now is the time to get him at 22,cody will be 31 i say arivadeci, fafita either you pay now andreap the benefit or never get him especially if he kicks on,if anyone is being paid 1mill by a club, why leave for 1 mill? You got to grab them when they are at this stage or forget it,we need 2 marquees, they are it,sink or swim,bottom half of the table or top half,no ifs no buts,bennet wont be the pied pipper for more than the next 2 years, besides someone tell me ,who else is available? And no fairy ideas please, everyone here must think its easy persuading players to come, it only happens when they are relatively young.

    Fifita is contracted for next year, you won't be getting him for next year.

    All good. But I believe Fafita wants to come to Souths regardless of how much.

    So where do these rumours about Latrell and Cody come from? Obviously, Latrell has been linked with us but where does the one about Cody come from? It's the first I've heard of it.

    Also,

    Rabbitohs finalise coaching structure for 2020 Season: https://www.rabbitohs.com.au/news/2019/10/28/rabbitohs-finalise-coaching-structure-for-2020-season/

    Absolutely awesome that GI and Sutto are going to be heavily involved next year, that honestly makes me so friggin happy! Great stuff Souths! Also a shame to lose Peters and Millard but hopefully Rogers and this new coach can step up and take their place.

    If Sam retires and Walker leaves, we have about 25 players signed. I don’t know how much space we have in our salary cap, but can we sign Mitchell, Fifita, Thompson, Matterson and Chrichton if the Roosters release him?

    Pretty certain Crichton will never be signed by Souths again. The rest, I agree.

    For Mitchell, Fifita, Thompson and Matterson you'd need around 2.5m in cap space. I'd doubt we'd have that with Sam, George, Cody and Sutton leaving. Throw in Gagai maybe?

    If mitchell and fafita get 1mill each are the others worth 500k combined?
