    Apparently we need to make room in the cap if we want to sign Cogger, according to media reports..

    Theres another player who is supposed to be coming back. Dane Chisholm. He was lent to a pommy club to get experience.
    Sadly he couldnt get to play FG in the UK because of the limit on aussie players at the club.

    Bulldogs will need to shed at least 4 topline players if they are to sign Cogger according to media reports, the NRL has said it will stand firm and will refuse to sign off on any contracts until its been proven the Dogs will be cap compliant with the new signing.

    Its expected that the Roosters may make a play for a package deal for both Klemmer & Woods which may help make room for Cogger, both Brisbane & Manly are keen to put an offer in front of Foran and the Morris twins although Parramatta could also join the race, if the Dogs could unload all these players they may squeeze Cogger under the cap


    In other news the NRL are investigating the bulldogs over suspected salary cap breaches, its been reported that the leagues club has been allowing the players to get free tomato sauce squeeze packs with their sausage rolls instead of them having to pay the required 25cents per pack......if true the NRL is expected to come down hard on the Bulldogs which may include loss of points, suspension from the 2018 season or the reinstatement of Des Hasler

    The Roosters have managed to retain the services of their entire star studded existing playing squad including Ferguson, Mitchell, Topou, Manu, Keary, Cordner, Napa, Friend, Liu,Taukeiaho and JWH in addition sign Cronk, Tedesco and Crighton but yet still can be a major player in the open player market because they still have a spare 2 million dollar warchest to spend on gun marquee players.... We should all Lynch the entire NRL and Roosters administrations!

    Not happening.

    Lichaa has confirmed Frawley and Foran in the halves.

    That leaves:
    Brown
    Cleeland
    Lewis
    Marshall-King
    Wakeham

    as halves.

    I'm willing to see how Frawley goes next to KF. Might compliment each other nicely.

    I'd personally go for...

    1. Mbye

    6. Foran
    7. Cleeland/Cogger

    9. Lichaa

    14. Brown

    But let's see how we go.

    Anyone that believes Frawley is FG half is kidding themselves it should be Foran and mbye.

    hopefully we land the kid, i think we will seeing we let lee likely to free a spot up. wouldn't mind seeing us give the kid a go then if he flops we got enough money to fix our issues this coming season. e.g if no one stands up with foran we have the money to make some moves with either mbye going back to halves and signing a quality fullback or if mbye kills it we can go for a gun half with eastwood/morris bros off contract/ grahams money off our books too.

    ideally the kid signs, kills it and gives us a long term pairing with foran and him. move mbye to centre to replace jmoz, sign RTS. Sign Joseph Manu to replace Bmoz and we have money left from graham/eastwood to go sign papalli seeing we missed Crichton :D

    1. RTS
    2. Manu
    3. Mbye
    4. Hoppa
    5. Montoya
    6. Foran
    7. Cooger
    8. Woods
    9. Lichaa
    10. Klemmer
    11. Papalii
    12. RFM
    13. Jacko

    14. Brown
    15. Fuafalo
    16. Tualau
    17. Martin/Elliott/Odgen/whoever steps up

    Could even offload Tolman with that line up and have more $$$ :D

    Reading between the lines on this. The only club specifically mentioned by Coggers manager is Canberra. The Bulldogs are mentioned as "potential suitors" by the journalist who wrote the article and they've possibly only done so in order to mention the fact that Pay had an association with Cogger as his junior rep coach. I'd say that we've been linked to 40 or so halves over the last few years. It's easy to link our club to players since we're known to keep things quiet until we've locked down a contract. So from the article posted here I take a few facts out of it.

    1. Cogger doesn't want to leave the club unless it's for as starting NRL spot.
    2. Coggers manager is trying to find him a club that will potentially fast track him into a starting position which in turn will potentially net him more money in commissions.
    3. As far as the actual quotes in the article go, the only club mentioned by the manager who are trying to lure him is canberra

    5 pages in and 2 things come to mind:

    a. I still don't even know who this kid is and
    b. No-one seems to know if he's any good.

    I want to blame the offseason, I really do, but we seem to get excited these days about any new signing.

    Maybe this is what Des has done to us?

    If, and it's a big IF, we are after him, it would kind of confirm KF @ 5/8th.
