    Out of curiosity.... if we don’t land any big fish for 2021.. what do we do? Pay existing guys overs ? I’m not across the exact rule but you need to use 90% minimum or there abouts of what’s available to spend?

    Front load contracts to counter when we have to pay overs? No idea. We've already let half of the talent get re-signed or go elsewhere so we're going to see I guess.

    I think (I could be wrong) but there is a limit on front loading now. Not sure what it is but I think it’s limited.

    I don't have an issue with back ending contracts. As long as we're not misjudging the salary cap growth at the same time it isn't comparable to when we got done. If we're not doing that then what are we spending our salary cap on for 2021? It's clear we're not signing anyone unless something changes very quickly. I'm not sure if you're having a dig at me or the board.

    Cheaper version of DWZ (half the price). DWZ is a slightly better player and has better leadership skills tho.

    Yeah maybe... I still think CNK is a better fullback than DWZ. If we had him, Dallin would be winger

    Covering the agenda with more voices in his head

    Anyway as others have said, terribly
    Disappointing to miss out on Scott.

    Exactly what we need and a huge upgrade in our weakest position.

    To be honest, I'm over getting worked up about all of these other signings and retentions. It's just not worth the aggravation. As long as our young talent is given the responsibility and trust to make their own mark then as I said in another thread, we might not need to recruit as heavily in the short term. Without an influx of signings it's the only hope we have and to stay positive..

    If Averillo or Harper get given a run in the centres hopefully they impress enough to make the position their own. As long as Montoya and Holland don't see FG again I'll be happy.

    Unfortunately that’s not really good enough to compete for anything. That’s us just looking for anything to be positive about because the recruitment is woeful.

    Then the other side of the coin is it took how long to see Renouf given a chance consistently? Rfm?
    Even Ogden had great games and then blokes like Elliott or sue or smith who has howlers too where picked week in week out.

    I hate to say it but I think holland and
    Montoya will see more first grade again. Terrible I know but just facing what’s been shown.

    Good move for them. Ricky Stuart and his team are doing a great job with recruitment.

    Sezer the dud is out. Ricky has had enough of Leilua. Scott is in. If their key players stay fit they should have another tilt at the premiership. I think it will be either Raiders, Eels or Storm in the final for 2020.
