    Yeah:

    http://www.canberratimes.com.au/rug...-battles-for-hooking-role-20131119-2xtjg.html

    Has managed two appearances this year - in round 3 he played 53 minutes off the bench at lock, and in round 10 he played 22 minutes off the bench at hooker.

    Seems like mostly just a tackling machine. Like a young Matt Keating only bigger and slower.

    Machine?

    Less than 80 minutes for a season makes him a tackling machine?

    Glad he's not an impact player

    It's the 47 tackles he made in those 75 minutes that makes him a tackling machine. I'm sure he makes a lot of tackles for Mount Pritchard too.

    If he's a hooker, hopefully we can get him on 10 June...

    250k per season? that is literally the average wage of a first grader based on the current cap
    See guys getting more purely for 'potential'
    Personally I think its a steal.

    Didn't the Dogs sign Klemmer on a $1 million contract over 3 years before he played a game of first grade?

    I agree.

    It's wonderful value - papers always tend to round up if it is close, so chances are that he is being paid $900k over 4 seasons. It's a heckuva good wage for a massive unit who can finish, has great pace and is tall.
    He's still learning the game, needs to improve under the high ball, and in rucking it out after a kick - potential for him to be the best winger in the game!

    Agreed. We got him for a bargain IMO.

    Isn't Uate on 500k per year or there abouts?

    I must be way behind the times.

    Was Luke Burt then on $400k / season

    Nope, i think you will find Burt continually took pay cuts. He would have ended up on just over 120k a year.
