Is that DCE supporting the Broncos in the bottom left?
No, it's Michael Morgan.
Badel: “confirmed TPJ is joining newcastle as it is full of people”
This kid is the broncos. Future captain material. What a legend.
That's just it. He's still a kid. Got a ways to go yet.
Are TPJ and Haas set for big minutes next year? The size of their contracts may suggest that.
What does this mean for McGuire, Lodge and Ofahengaue?
All of them could play 80 minutes.
the size of contracts shouldn't determine playing time... talent, form and fitness should be the only thing that determines playing time
We could always try the tactic of having the most explosive bench in the comp.

9. Andrew McCullough
10. Joe Ofahengaue
11. Jaydn Su'a
12. Matt Gillett
13. Josh McGuire
14. Kodi Nikorima / Kotoni Staggs
15. David Fifita
16. Tevita Pangai Junior
17. Payne Haas
Nah. TPJ has earned his starting spot for life. Fifita and Haas can come on for him and keep the intensity up
Talent, form and fitness should also determine contract size.
Didn’t Badel have his offers at 800K last night? He’s dropped a hundred K overnight, by the looks.
no, that was TPJ with 800k offers.
FTR, the Roosters have reportedly dropped out of race for TPJ as their salary sombrero didn't have enough room for them to sign him
Just when you think you've seen it all...
Oh right. It’s so hard to keep up with all these imaginary numbers.
Journalists imaginary numbers.
Every contract number is theoretically imaginary until the player signs.
Can't really rip on the journos for trying to give people a general indication of the potential money on offer.
800k for TPJ and 700k for Oates sounds about right on the open market.
Too right you can when they either a) quote some rumour as fact or b) straight out make shit up.
Dont think there is anything in it, but heard a whisper Offa may be heading north.
Still signed for 2019, the Broncos would have to release him.
It would be strange considering the amount of contracts he's turned down to stay with the broncs as a bench player... only to finally break the starting side, on the brink of a premiership window and decide to move up north to a team that could be way out of contention with their champion just retired.
