    Not at League he wasn't. He spent a lot of time in reserve grade at Newcastle. Only had a couple of years in the top grade in the NRL.

    Since we now have finally received 350k we have to spend by rd 1. I'm getting a strong feeling we might be signing ado - carr... As Tigers just signed leulua. And Smith has pushed into Centre...

    You may be right in the scheme of things, but complications remain:

    Although like for like rule appears to have been softened:

    - Storm have to agree to release JAC for 2020 and they’ll want to be well compensated for that via a player swap, transfer fee, or both. If I were the Storm I wouldn’t want an unhappy employee but they won’t let him go for nothing.

    - JAC is trying to swap managers in the middle of all of this.

    We’ll see how it pans out and if the other moves were related or co-incidental.

    If it was my decision I'd trade Okunbor and offer $500,000 for JAC...if you consider the 350k Were only paying 150K for him

    I agree with you on Okunbor - and I'd trade him before someone like Lewis.
    The question is whether the Storm would see that as adequate.
    Bellamy has a good eye for talent - who could he turn into a playmaker for Melbourne? My guess is maybe Lewis or Wakeham but who knows if he'd see Okunbor as adequate and from what I've seen of Wakeham I'd prefer the Dogs keep him.
    The $500k number might be a bit skinny too - I've done a back of the beer coaster calculation but best not post it here given I've called into question myself the numbers being bandied about on here in terms of salaries and how it fits the cap :-)
    Bottom line - I think we could make it work dollar wise - the real question is what Melbourne see as adequate compensation...

    Because he’d fail the no dickhead policy test and he’s well past his best. No thanks (from me). If the Sharktides are offloading centres I’d rather take J-Moz back for a year, but I think we’ll be fine with Smith/Hoppa anyway, particularly if JAC becomes reality on the wing.

    Not unlike when we were paying Greg Eastwood a similar amount in 2018 to spend the majority of the year in reggies.

    The money that's being offered in compensation needs to be used for a replacement player.

    In other words you can't use the 350k to sign a winger when the injured player is a half. And the NRL will police it hard as we are the bulldogs, not Souths or the roosters.

    Best available player would be Doueihi who has played in the halves but I doubt it would happen.

    Good point. Apparently JAC is only on 350k which I find extraordinary considering he's a Test and State winger... Also Storm will have just lost both their wingers ... The only question for Bellamy would be is Onkunbar good enough?! We definately can't afford to lose any of our three halves, having them all competing for a FG spot is terrific planning by Pay and I feel all of them are ready to break out this year.
