I definitely would not be chasing Kikau if the reported asking price of $900k is remotely true.If he medically retires it could free up to 500K. With left overs from sacking Elliott (and buying Asiata) it would be enough to spend on Cheese or if not Kikau for 2023. If we're not getting Pearce or Cheese I'd go Kikau - big upgrade on RFM and big increase in the size of our pack.
For 2022 Hetherington could be a good edge, so could Thompson (both have good leg speed)
Top try scorer with 6 tries the whole year lol. I think most people have tried to bury the last few seasons in the back of their minds and I don’t blame themWhat are you people talking about? He was our best player last year and our top try scorer. Terribly short memories around here.
NooooooooBulldogs forward Raymond Faitala-Mariner's career is in the balance after he underwent a bone graft on his foot.
The barnstorming forward had surgery earlier in the year but the injury did not heal properly.
The bone graft is a major surgery and there is a 20 per cent chance that Faitala-Mariner, who managed just two games for the club this season due to the injury, could be forced to hang up the boots.
"It is a possibility but we are hopeful it won't come to that," Bulldogs supremo Phil Gould told Wide World of Sports.
"If things go to plan, he will be running in three months and able to play in six months.
"It's too early to tell what will happen."
The Bulldogs today signed former Cowboys and Broncos forward John Asiata, as Wide World of Sports reported several weeks ago.
AgreeYeah he's far from deadwood, damaging runner and as long as he recovers well he'll improve with better players around him
