    I reckon Bankwest Stadium at least half the games, then various other grounds the other half

    We’ve lost Davey and Lane is moving to the middle (he has been playing there mid game in the later rounds). So starting edge will be Nikore and Matto. Nikore also provides great punch when he plays in the middle, so I reckon there is a bench spot for him easy.

    Don't remember Niukore playing edge much this year, against Melbourne when we had to do a big reshuffle?

    Niukore doesn't play on the edge anymore.

    Well he didn't as we had Davey, Lane and Matto. But he has and still might unless we sign another. I don't recall that we have any kids coming through ready to step into top 30, do you ? We still need to sign 9 players so the landscape may change.

    Why would we have upgraded him when for 1 year when he was leaving anyway, particularly with us being allowed to play development players in this covid year? And even if we did, why would we have over tripled his salary for this one year paying him almost 300k?

    We still have Lane and Matto and now we have have Papali'i who is more likely to play on the edge than Niukore.

    Because Stefano getting an upgrade from a development contract to almost 300k in the final year of his contract (when he had already signed with Tigers) didn't happen.

    He was upgraded to the top 30 (probably to fill our squad) but there is no way it wouId have been $300k, that’s just stupid when he held the upper hand....
    Hey Stefo, you are on a $60k development contract, we want to promote you to the top 30, on $100k. Stefo, na that’s not enough. Eels, ok enjoy the season doing the same on $60k.....

    here is the upgrade ( pre covid):

    https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www...ikamanu-to-keep-him-from-tigers-clutches/amp/

    absolutely no evidence of the upgrade being $300k (only Scott Seward wouId do that)

    I think the $300k was what we allegedly offered from 2021 onwards
