    Who cares what they were all getting in 2020. They came stone motherless last.

    Smart move by him. He'll only have to touch the ball at contractual Bulldog media pressers.

    Finally people can quit dreaming that he was coming to Parra.

    Not sure how many Eels fans were dreaming about it.... Plenty of Tigers fans were. They've missed out on another target.... They better hope they don't lose Nofo now....

    Interesting to see if Polar leaving means we are promoting one of the kids or about to sign from elsewhere. Anyway, good luck to Alvaro.

    Why the LOL Chiefy? Maybe I've missed something.
    I hope he does well. He obviously wasnt a BA kind of player. Personally Id have picked him every day over Jane Evans. I reckon he absolutely didnt receive a fair go last year.

    I really doubt that he'll push into the 17. I don't think the new faster rules suit his play, but good luck to him. Maybe he'll do better in a different system

    I think if he lost some weight and developed an offload he would've pushed into the team

    I reckon he was on 250k.
    I dare say the Dragons gave him close to 200k x 2 yr deal. So perhaps 350k -400k.
    He is prob worth the 150k-180k range

    I wonder if the Dragons want him to play fat or thin? Maybe try a year of thin, then a year of fat then back to thin?
