    I would rather we keep our powder dry and talent scout for the next young promising 9 and pay overs for him, rather than buy a used up player like Luke. His best was Soufs days and they are long behind him plus I feel he has a lazy ass bone in him...

    He can have great matches. But he can also be the biggest dud I've seen at times. He's like a box of chocolates.

    That's easily a toss up between Scott and Walker.

    They were paying Api around $500k and still want a back up hooker and can probably get Luke cheaply. It’s all a cost cutting exercise.

    Ok but say they are forking out some cash and laying Luke cheap... wouldn’t it have just made sense to flick a couple of cheaper players and keep someone so vital in the club? How much could that possibly be saving.

    It probably depends on how much cap they wanted to save. If they flicked a couple of cheaper players they would still have to replace them in the top 30 so they wouldn’t have cleared much cap space that way. From all reports Api was on $500k and let’s say Luke signs for $150k. They replace Api with another hooker and save $350k in cap space.
