    But we lost Stefano because MON was having a snooze while driving! Probably one of those trolley tractors

    was he though ?

    does anyone know how much under the cap we are ? and we have no back up for Mahoney and got lucky with Jai Field, so there may be funds set aside for other back ups

    we have Kafusi and Polar and maybe Stephano was not considered a priority, or we didn't have enough under the cap to upgrade him

    I think the Tigers bought/valued him on his size rather than his ability as when I have sen him play his work rate has been low and he is only getting a gig because we have a heap of injuries

    I'm not really trying to defend MON but we cant keep them all and some are bound to slip through

    Stephano looked like something rather than actually being something.. The numbers were never there. He might make a decent first grader but is no real loss.

    Look at what the Roosters did at the beginning of 2018. Keary re-signed a new contract at the end of 2017 worth 2.2 million dollars over 3 years when they signed Cronk to a 2 million dollar deal as well. This is all while signing Angus on a 2.7 million deal around the same time. They also re-signed Jake Friend and Latrell Mitchell around this time. I realise Latrell is gone now but it’s not because of salary cap reasons and it has been reported the Roosters are currently under the cap. Would you say Brown, Moses and Mahoney in a few years would cost significantly more than Keary, Cronk and Friend 2018-2019?

    Well I reckon they got Cronk on unders, and Friend is nothing special. Mahoney might already be as good. And if Keary is on $2.2M over three years we might already be paying Drown that much. Moses would be on more than that right now. Flanagan would be on maybe half what Drown or Moses is getting.

    We also have three big money middle forwards plus Matterson would be on at least as much as Crichton.

    The only positions where they would be paying more than us would be Cordner and Tedesco, who would both be on massive coin. JWH would be on similar to our middles.

    I see now that BA is working on RCG fitness for 2024. He'll need to be fit to play with no team mates
