    This has got to be Gavet. I get the feeling that Klemmer's signing will be leaked by the Bulldogs before it's officially announced by Newcastle.

    Played junior footy with Bert at Guilford Leagues club and he was the most naturally gifted footballer I have ever seen - his ability to swerve (not step) at full pace was freakish...different, but Ponga is that sort of player.

    Also played a lot of school boy footy against Sterlo and he was as good as Johns for mine...whilst he had all the skills, his best attribute was between his ears - he was always 5 plays ahead of everybody else, even at the elite level.

    Agree on the backline (Sterling, Kenny, Cronin, Ella and Grothe) but would also say that the Raiders 1991 backline with Stuart, Daley, Meninga, Jackson, Ferguson, Mullins and Belcher was certainly an equal

    Gavet profiles extremely similar to Lillyman.
    Misleading because his runs look violent at times, but their output is almost identical.

    Still, if it means less fringe players, sign me up.
    We've effectively upgraded Heighington and Lillyman with Gavet and Glasby.
    They're not flashy signings but they're low cost, decent value signings that help an area of need. It's good recruitment.

    Glasby wasn't low cost. How much will Gaveat be on?

    Herman was a steal.

    What was the rumor with Glasby's contract price ? It would of had to be decent coin to leave the Storm?

    I'm guilty of not watching this Gavet bloke so have no idea how good he is.

    Gavet won't be on anything special. Let go for discipline, not bought out.

    Glasby is on what 500k?
    People still act like 500k means the same as when Joey was playing.
    It's 5% of the cap now if all 500k is salary and none of it is TPA.
    Cheap.

    Wasn't let go for discipline reasons. Only had one year left and we weren't offering anymore than that. Fallen a bit in the pecking order relative to what he was costing so it was beneficial to both parties.

    So for next year we’ve replaced King and Lillyman with Gavet and (hopefully) Klemmer. Then replaced Dennis and Sio with Ramien and Lee. Upgrades all round! Good time to be a knights fan I think

    Brown has obviously brought Gavet here
    to play a really important role in the squad... keeping Josh King out of first grade.

    In that case he is worth paying three times whatever we are!

    Daily Telegraph reporting Manu Ma'u may be available for next season and we're one of the half a dozen clubs that are interested.

    Who’s spot does he take though? I think he’s better than a reserve grader

    That’s the whole point, the biggest problem with our club over the last few years is once one of our top 17 gets injured the bloke who takes his place is a reserve grader and ends up being way out of his depth. If we can have as many first grade quality players playing reserve grade as possible that’s a massive plus for our club.
