    I seem to recall it being something Gould tweeted about perhaps?

    The way you create cap space for the proceeding year is by using spare cap space in the current year to extend and front load merkins you want to keep.

    Problem is, there’s only a handful of merkins worth extending and front loading out of our uncontracted rabble.

    Mau and Jennings are the only ones worth throwing decent coin at, unless we want to lock in Drown.

    Yeah I think there is the ability to carry over 5% (or a small amount) of the salary cap to the following year if it’s not used. Pretty sure it was Gould who mentioned it on Twitter

    I can’t find any articles to support it however and the merkin Gus deleted his Twitter. I think it was discussed on here last year.

    Weird that there isn’t one article on the inter webs about it? If it was discussed on here you would at least be able to search the posts, maybe someone even posted a screenshot of Gus’ supposed tweet, particularly with the sourcing rules around here.

    They said in the Fox replay that Gowie wants to go around again next year.

    I hope they find a spot for him.

    Has he actually admitted that Sivo was last in the Penrith system ? Last time I heard him talk about Sivo he said that he came to the Eels from the bush via Mounties.

    I could be wrong but Isn’t prepaying a contract when you pay a guys contract for the following year in the current year? Like roosters did with maloney while he was still at the warriors?
    Thats a little different to just not spending all of ur current cap and then having it roll over?

    Ok "rolling over" might not be an entirely acturate term, but this is suggesting you can effectively use some left over cap space to lessen future payments, hence make cap room, without needing to renew contracts

    Isn’t it basically the same thing, you can spend around $500k (that’s if you have not spend that amount) from the 2019 cap in 2020 ?

    You can only do that if you allocate the 500k to a player this year. You can’t just leave it unspent and then roll it over.

    During the round one commentary he didn't seem to know who he was.
