    Still cannot believe Payne Hass re-signed for $650k a season. Payne's manager should be investigated.

    Fifita won’t leave the broncos. He’s even made a pact with haas to both stay at broncos

    Fifita would be a good signing for the dogs, another player I don't mind but isn't off contract is Flegler he will become gun forward in the future.

    Dogs should of signed Turpin I forgot what happened there, I remember he was interested or something..

    Players I would looks at from broncos would be:

    Fifita
    Flegler
    Staggs
    Turpin

    Turpin might of wanted X amount of money that we weren't willing to pay to get him over here. In theory you should be able to get anyone you want if you offer enough money. We just need to find the right balance when doing that.

    Broncos have rumoured to already put Flegler on a big contract for him. I think we might of missed the boat on that one. Guler from the Raiders is probably the next best young prop we could sign (isn't a starter yet at the Raiders and isn't on a big contract).

    I think from memory it wasn't about the money, Bulldogs couldn't promise him a starting hooker role because we have the best hooker Infront of him called JMK. That's Dean Pay for ya!

    Buzz saying fifita will be going to the dragons, that Bennett will deliver him there, bennett told the dragons board to let frizell go to Newcastle.
    Its a square up for broncos taking tallis all those years ago off st George.

    He's an edge forward, we have absolutely no need to spend 1m+ on an edge forward. There's far better ways for us to spend our cap than do something stupid like that.

    turpin and staggs wont leave broncos, staggs lives with turpin
    the broncos have the makings of a very good young team

    turpin met with bulldogs last year, left the meeting with a lot of unanswered questions, and was told jmk is above him for starting spot
    who is going to uproot themselves from their family and friends to move to sydney for peanuts just above the minimum nrl wage, broncos meadia bloke dobby or something reported that ages ago

    There's so many ways we can improve our team and spending 1.2m on a player that plays in the most stacked position in the NRL is not at the top of the list.

    Just for arguments sake with rough amounts, 1.2m for Fifita or 1.2m for Cotric + Friend/Mahoney? I know what I'd be more comfortable with.

    Yeah fair points it is a stacked position but Fifita is pure X factor something our young halves would love to have around them. Cotric is awesome but I see him as a priority signing for Canberra. Either way the way things are at the moment we would most likely need to pay over market to secure one of the big names. $1.2m might be a bit much. But hey Foran is on around that and he’s busted. Fifita is 19/20 and looks like he could be anything.
