    If these reports are true that we need to release one of our top tiered players to stay under the cap for 2019, which player would you release?

    Woods for me. Good player on his day, but way overpriced and can pick up a good prop for half his price.

    Id Like to be able to release 2 but if I had to choose only one it would be Foran just edging woods .. unfortunately forans health issues will not be getting any better and I'm sure hes on a pretty penny ..

    Foran, he doesn’t offer value for money and plays his best footy when he’s second fiddle. Even though he hasn’t missed games this year he’s got chronic injuries and I doubt he will ever get back to 100% fitness.

    Definitely mbye, as well as he's played this year he's had the longest time and opportunities to prove himself and the only other two worth release so early as in woods and foran have not even had a full season at our club

    Why stop at 1? I'd release Woods, Foran and Mbye. All being paid well above the value of their output.

    Just one player? It would be the highest paid which is Foran.

    Ideal world? Foran, Woods and Mbye. And spend on a proper spine

    Are we paying Eastwood past his year? If so then he should be first then Foran

    Eastwood is not contracted past 2018 and from all reports will not be offered another contract.

    Woods for sure. Shit player. Always has been. He’s a myth. Also last in first out.

    You would offload someone you can replace easily on the cheap from our juniors.

    We would still be paying half his wage to play for someone else. So the new player at half his price would leave us in the same cap situation.

    Jacko is the only one in the whole squad who will get the same money elsewhere.

    Hence we are up shit creek!

    Id easily go with Woods... then trade Tolman to the Titans for Latu and we are good to go.
