Definates that have reached their ceiling (with us but may excel elsewhere as some do) and need to go.....

Casey, Flanno, Okenbor, Reynolds, Thompson if over $400k, Waddell.
Turahui has gone already?

Def to keep Hughes, Avo, Burns.


The rest I'm afraid up to Gus and Ciro....tho even they aren't as good a judge of a footballer than I am lol lol lol lol

I'd say our biggest $$$ issue chewing the cap, where we are not getting value is TPJ.....Burton will be another one if they continue to waste their and his time at #7

Thompson is another one due to injuries, though I would like to see him stay at a reduced rate

alamoti, averillo, faamanu Brown, Hughes and patolo.

would only retain okunbor and waddell for depth for 1 more season if we cant get anyone else better though im sure we have better options coming through in nsw cup that can replace them

How do you keep Thompson?
He has hardly been on the Field in 3 years.

I thought Alamoti was already locked up for a while? Only Averillo and Alamoti are worth worrying about..

Hughes, maybe Patolo and Burns for depth/experience. Other than that, no one worth keeping. I certainly hope Waddell and Okunbur don't get new deals although Ciraldo seems to love Okunbur so it wouldn't surprise me if he gets re-signed.

You need to also consider what you’re paying these guys. A lot like burns would be close to minimum wage. That’s worth keeping around. Even if he gets injured every time he gets into the top grade. Cause unisss you have better options coming through which we get to see soon with more players able to be used. It’s better to keep known quantities.

guys like alomoti won’t get big money based on performance this year and that’s good for the dogs. If we get him right he will outplay his contract.

As mentioned, on a reduced rate

Guys like TPJ, Napa(when he was at the dogs), have been on the field for 3 years and produced nothing

King and Thompson are our best props and we are still short a few props

We are actually going to be in deeper shit next year if we dont find a world class prop along with another 2 decent props

Thompson only if close to minimum wage. He will most likely be injured anyway.

Burns after his Dragons performance I would resign, that effort epitomises the clubs spirit.

Okunbor is needed for depth. One of our best this season.

Averillo I’m not sold on since Xerri and Critta are coming. Xerri is quicker and bigger.

Sign Reynolds as a part time consultant, im sure he will have a successful real estate career next year that will keep him busy.

Yes Alamoti deserves an offer and potentially Brown, everyone else can leave.

Being realistic club will offer Avo a contract he continues his form he will 100% get an offer elsewhere.

Keep Avo if we can, Alamoti, Okunbor cheap wouldn’t be bad depth, Burns great depth player, Wadell isn’t a starting 17 player in a top 4 side and Flannagan can cut oranges on the sideline if he wants to for a can of Coke Zero.

Avo needs to be resigned 100%.
alamoti yes but needs more time in nsw cup.
Burns great back up.
Thompson if he will take pay on games he plays.
Chris patolo good of the bench and cheap.
The rest can go.
