    It will help give us 2 million below the cap instead of 1

    Do you reckon it might hurt their ruck defence next weekend?

    The point is we are spending less on players than the top sides. If we're under the cap we're even spending less than ordinary sides like Manly, who have only won one more game than us, and who are a good chance of finishing the year with fewer wins than us.

    So the Sharks lose Kyle Flanagan because they spent too much on Shaun Johnson who continues to be a very inconsistent player. Glad we didn't bite. We would have lost Dylan Brown.

    They have also lost one of those Brailey hooker brothers to Newcastle. Brent Read said on 2MMM that Newie can't register him for 2020+ until they release a player. I think that's why Ese'ese has been linked to us.

    I like what BA is doing with the squad. We will have a better more balanced side next year, We need another big bopper up front and hopefully we can offload Nick Kyrgios back to tennis.

    He has good stats but I reckon Nathan Brown stifles our attack a bit like Paul Gallen at the Sharks.

    and lol at all the dimwits saying that the Roosters must have no salary cap because they have signed him (not on here, we are smarter than that). They are replacing Cooper Cronk ffs. It's probably saving them 800k. I do wonder what they will do with Lam, Lamb and the other kid who has played at seven this year who I can't remember his name. Hopefully they all turn out to be duds.

    Oh. I wish Evans was at least interesting off the field (and watching old mate Papi have a flog doesn't count).

    Evans makes Darcy Lussick look like Arthur Beetson.

    Brown should be moved to Front row with Paulo finding a new lock for next season and not a front row lock!

    He's not a 'first hit up' guy.

    I agree. Runs to the line at 100 miles an hour than just stops and gets dominated. i would like to see him run into a hole that quickly.

    I’ve been calling NBrown a poor mans Gallon for 18 months now. He’s nothing special.
