I hope we are talking to Doorey and Fariner Mariner. Dogs won't have a lot to throw at these two.
They had to sign players but how do you compare it to what Penrith did? They still used a huge core of young guys they developed with the odd big signing.
Dogs basically signed 5 huge names and 5 + well known players. Who in the squad will they get great value from?
Other clubs will start to circle their up and coming juniors.I think they must be aware there isn't a lot coming thru unlike Panthers who cleared the deck for all the talented they knew was about to burst into the scene.
Despite looking at the current Dogs squad and thinking there'd have to be some bargains there, they would have been, and will have spent their cap on these guys.
That's gotta tell you there's quite a few blokes on overs right now in their squad, any of those guys contracted through 2023, unless they can lift their market value next year, will be costing the dogs money to move on.
