    Just give him the 800k, but obviously try and negotiate a little bit. The Dragons will also be highly interested with the departure of Frizell.

    Would be a good get. Add Bateman, Thompson and addo car in 2021 that’s a big step towards being a contender. Develop Wakeham averillo and Marshall king we will have a very solid team

    Have you watched him play? Bateman's one of the most creative second rowers in the competition that can do a bit of everything.

    Jake friend or conner Watson should be our first signings as we should be building a decent spine.
    Followed by the best centre available.
    Get the best available players for the required positions we need the most
    Then fill spots with other talent as required.
    Derr, like any business, come on canterbury get it fukken right, we are sick of it.

    Bateman for chn. Would think Chn and tolmans money would come
    Close to batemans and Thompson’s.

    Then go hard for addo carr and cotric and watson/jakenfriend for a year or 2.

    Gives us strike and some forward strike.

    Dwz
    Meaney/Smith
    Hoppa
    Cotric
    Addo carr
    Wakeham
    Foran
    Thompson
    Friend/watson
    Napa
    Bateman
    Jackson
    Elliott

    Renouf
    Rfm/Stimson
    Britt
    Alverio

    Jacko, circa 2020 Elliot so far, Bateman and Thompson
    That’s a great forward pack
    All we need is a half back, five eighth,
    DWZ to wake up and be a better fullback and a good hooker.

    Well he would just from the simple fact that he plays at speed and gets over the advantage line providing quick play the balls.

    Our spine isn't the best but they are made to look worse because they play off the back foot with a set defensive line.
