    I wonder if fifita could play centre ?
    That’s a position we definitely need help with, but you can’t pay $1m/season for a hunch.

    If he was even interested in coming here I think you'd make room for him in the backrow no matter who we have surely.

    Cant see it happening anyway, but he'd be without a doubt the first named in our forward pack. 11 - Fifita, 12 - CHN, 13 - Jacko

    Is this why Jacko hasn't been re-signed yet...….

    Jackson is probably pushing for more coin, he isn't worth it imo. 650k max. That's still good coin though.

    Sounds about right to me also. Would be terrible to lose him.

    700k for Jacko imo (max, obviously try and get him down to 600-650k). Literally the heart of our team and is still playing at a good level. He was my best player last season and if not than he was top 3.

    Sure would but if he wants too much they have to use the same formula we've alteady been told about x factor players.

    He has gotten very good money till now from us. Time to realise he has a long term future here if he wants it so accept market or a bit less.

    Do we get any ‘long service’ salary cap relief for Jacko?

    He is eligible for the $200k Veteran and Developed Player Allowance, additional to the Salary Cap, whatever it is for the year.

    Is that per player eligible or everyone eligible to be divided?

    Ok so if he wants $750K, we pay that but only $550K counted towards the salary cap? A handy $200K to put towards other signings
