    But isn't rugby league all about having the best players?!? Why would the Roosters swap Jennings for Copley?!? :crazy:

    As long as it aren't for stupid money, I would be very happy with Jennings. Gives the backline some x-factor, pretty bloody good player.

    Would actually be the best back that switches clubs, if it happens.

    I can't either, but if the chooks want to get rid of him they'll def assist in some way

    Without knowing the cost, it's hard to tell, but I don't think Jenkonis worth the coin he'd be after, especially since we'd lose him throughout origin.

    I said that in every era, mobile, skillful forwards played alongside less mobile 'monsters' (as you put it). How is that saying that the game hasn't changed? Your response was that the wrestle is a relatively new addition to the game. Not sure why you said that, but there you go. My response was that Cayless played during the wrestle era too.

    Of course, no one is arguing that the game hasn't changed. Bottom line is, I think you're wrong about your initial assertion.

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day. ;-)

    That's what Colonel reckons.

    Assuming Jennings comes would be play on the right seeing that he is a specialist left centre?

    Exactly. Adding quality in one spot means sacrificing quality somewhere else. And vice versa, for those critical of us choosing not to retain certain players.

    You'd think he would play on the left and Takairangi would change sides.

    My assertion is that smaller, skilful, hard working forwards are less useful than they were when the wrestle was less prominent. Cayless was one of the best props in the game early in his career, whereas later, when he should have been at his peak, he was superseded by the big boys.

    If we do get Jenko, I'd say accommodate him on the left and move Taka.

    After all, Jenko is a rep player.

    No mate. It's us or another code more likely Union. If he ever comes back, which us now unlikely.

    Rooster may be happy to pay some freight for 2016 to free up $500k for 2017.

    $250k for Copley for 2016 onwards, contribute $250k for 2016 for who ever signs Jennings. They then have $250k free in 2017 with a replacement ( in Copley) signed up.

    Exactly. I think we have about $300 odd k seeing that we were bidding for Hiku. The Roosters chip in $200k for 2016, we pay full freight in 2017. Meanwhile Copley gets $200k this year and a back ended deal and vehicles and shit from Politis, more likely Hayne's old Kluger.

    True. The wrestle f**ked our chances after 2001...well it at least contributed to our chances being f**ked.
