    Just looking for your thoughts folks,

    Surely you don’t release your major purchase of 2017 and not replace him with somebody else,

    Major purchase? He was a fringe player. Hes gone coz Hopoate is moving to centre. Nobody is coming. At best we get another depth player with his money.

    He left for personal reasons. I don't think there was ever a plan to replace him.

    Exactly. Would have been a backup he saw an opportunity at first grade and took it. Wouldn’t move the cap too much. If anything we can pick up another back up or restructure some contracts to make a play for a few key players next season.

    Eastwood is the big one. 800k this season so if you can move him and maybe even tolman you free up lots of space in the cap. But seeing as 2017 is almost over it will be hard to pick up key players for next season. We are better off seeing how we go next year and with Eastwood and the Morris boys all off contract next year you have a few mill to have a crack.

    Pay has showed his recruitment is better then Hasler already so I’m hopeful he will build a squad capable of competing in the next few years.

    Sad to see him go, he could have been anything with a good defense coach (not Hasler), but many Queensland's want to play in Queensland anyway.

    He was up here in qld months ago negotiating. Way before Hasler left. He wanted to come back home.

    Cogger is the man coming to the dogs if they agree on price

    Pay must be happy enough with our depth in the backs to let Lee go. Not sure who he's thinking about? Holland is next in the pecking order at this stage.
