    I thought kotoni staggs resigned for a few more years with the gronkos
    They’ll use the 800k there paying jack bird for 2021 to cover Fifita

    Even if they are in discussions we won't know anything unless he signs with us.

    We've recently tried to win by assembling high profile forward packs. Since all the wrestling tactics have become a huge part of the game it negates a lot of the importance of forward dominance. Even if your pack makes one or two good runs per set, they can still have that good work spoiler by defenders laying in the ruck for an age. If the referees are on your side it's a different case, but teams do far better presently if they have players that provide options through intelligent play. Spending huge money on your pack can make it difficult to sign those increasingly rare players that excel at getting the best out of the rest of the squad.

    Stamina wise I wouldn't put anyone past Tolman in the comp. Don't think anyone can do what he can do over 80min in the middle.

    Yeah that and the fact the club will be looking in getting Brisbane to pay overs to retain just like Manly and the Trbos and LM with everyone.

    Its fun having a war chest for once, you can do everyone's head in.

    We could build the team around a player like Fifita !
    He is a player that we should pay overs for !
    If the recruitment people think we will be able to attract a reliable marquee player to this club based the current state we are in without paying overs...
    They have rocks in their heads !!!

    There is a few including Payne Haas and Fisher Harris who have played multiple 80min games in the middle and can still break the line. Tolman has been a great soldier but he’s largely ineffective now and his stats are inflated - 4th tackle hit up evidence of that.

    When these kids do it for as long as Tolman has then we have discussion on our hands.
