Yes true not dylan brown.We need a half too mate
You sign him for 5 years without thinking about it if that’s the key to get him over the lineFew things I’d raise there though.
1. We aren’t as bad as we were set when we got jac over the line.
2. Jac at 500-550k is probably at least 200-350k less than we would have to pay smith.
3. I’d be more nervous about Brandon lasting 4-5 years than jac.
4. Jac signed surely helps as he’s close mates.
I think 3 years is ideal for Brandon even at 800k+ but if it took 4 I’d take it. Hell I’d be fine if he’s a mil the way he’s played and now with Gus and the way we are building as we could surely knock couple hundred k there and most contracts in third parties alot easier now.
Blokes a beast and what we need badly.
Agreed although at the right price for a contract that long, even allowing for the way he plays, he seems durable and should still be playing pretty well enough until then. Then there's no more will he stay or not in 2 or 3 years time.You sign him for 5 years without thinking about it if that’s the key to get him over the line
Barrett has come out publicly and has stated that Flanagan isn’t going anywhere, he will be a Bulldog in 2022!I think Burton would suit an organising half as his partner over a runner. Burton and Browns strengths are running as opposed to organising. I honestly thought that Barrett would at least give Flanagan a crack next year with a new spine and stronger side overall seeing as though he is meant to be a "organiser". There aren't many quality halves that fit that mould either so I'd rather stick with averillo for cheaper than recruit brown, or maybe give BBO a go in the trials at 7
