    I may be wrong, but I thought the CAP on 2020 was $9.8m

    "Just playing around with numbers to see what's possible"

    I've never seen somebody contradict themselves so quickly and in such a minimal amount of words.

    Same as Noone apparently, but at least Quality's got a couple of years on him.

    3. Quality

    Digging pot holes ey?

    If it's one thing you're good at, it's assuming pretty much everything without actually knowing anything.

    That backline is still well below average compared with the strong teams.
    Dufty - Not first grade level
    Oates - He is good not great
    Lomax - Rookie
    Leilua - He is good at times
    Macdonald - Barely first grade level

    So even the imaginary back line is pretty poor.

    Yes I agree that the
    "Signing - $100K
    Signing - $100K
    Signing - $150K
    Signing - $100K"
    represent quality and value commensurate with the needs of our coach.
    Not so sure about Oates, Leilua & Mc Donald.

    Not bad, however that is about $349k too much for Lafai !

    Wonder if Val Holmes wants to reunite with Flanno? I hope so that would be the only plus of him coming.

    I resent this.

    WTF is wrong with being a pothole digger?

    It appears that Hunt and Norman take a big chunk of the salary cap
    I feel that Norman and Hunt need to fire on all cylinders next season, If for argument Hunt wanted to go back to Brisbane they should let him go, he hasn’t been value for money and I don’t think Norman is either

    Joey Leilua would be a great signing.

    Rapana would be a great signing.

    Oates would be a great signing, but I think he would be very expensive. If we signed him, I would try him at centre.

    Nothing wrong with digging potholes!
    The world may be changing rapidly with technology but there will always be jobs for pothole diggers!
    Actually now I think of it thats probably false....
