    The numbers are all speculation from journos. These big contracts for young players are usually stepped as well (back ended, if you will) to reflect the (presumed) increased cap in future years, as well as the young player's presumed increase in effectiveness over the length of the deal. So a journo hearing that the fourth year of Trbojevic or Mitchell's contract has him on $1.2M becomes an article about the player earning that much each year, when he might 'only' be on $800k in the first year of the deal.

    But mostly they would just make shit up. There's nothing libelous about overestimating how much a player is earning. To win in court the player would have to make his actual salary public knowledge and none of them want that.

    The stepped contracts also account for why a club can shed some players on decent money and only replace them with nuffies. Dopey fans ask where the cap space went, but the answer is that a lot of it gets swallowed up each year in stepped upgrades.

    In the second photo, Phil looks like he's contemplating exactly what to do with the load that is already in his mouth.

    Have we even signed anyone since Matterson? Feels like they've taken their eye off the ball.

    Corey Thompson would be a better fullback than Gutherson. Gutherson then to centres.

    Corey Thompson has stuff all play making ability. Last year he only had 5 LBAs and 1 try assist. All he does is run hard to try and make up for his lack of size and skill.

    He runs hard. But in bottom 3 fullback in comp.

    Guth isnt elite but most likely leads the rest of the pack after the top 3 or 4.

    Best play maker of them all.

    Average defender

    Average run

    Best involvement of them all

    Perhaps best energy as to what brings to team.

    I'd rate overall between 5th-8th best fullback in comp.
    If prefer Bevan to Thompson.
