What about if it was a trade for Arrow or something?
TPJ for Arrow I'd be happy with. Not sure about that one for Glenn as he wouldn't be a direct replacement for him.

I'm hoping it's been all this contract stuff that's affected TPJ. He has immense talent, I just don't think he has been performing.

Love to have Arrow back.

On TPJ, He will. Once it clicks, TPJ, Lodge and Haas will be unstoppable as a unit.

This is one heck of a forward rotation in two years from now:

8. Lodge
9. Turpin
10. Haas
11. TPJ
12. Fifita
13. Joffa

14.
15. Flegler
16. Bullemor
17. Carrigan

A couple of other promising young kids to come in or out of that as well. Who knows, Flegs might even become a full-time lock, Siebs seems to be a fan of that.

Yeah, I like that forward pack.

The only thing I'd probably change is starting Flegler like you said, but at prop. Joffa on the bench for some size there.

8. Lodge
9. Turpin
10. Flegler
11. Pangai
12. Fifita
13. Haas

Anyway, we can't really go wrong now with the re-signings of Lodge, Tevita, Haas, Fifita...

Also need to factor in whether Oates will shift to the forwards at some point

- Merged

Fotuaika is way too good to be at the Tits. Still developing but I reckon he will be something special in a few years time in the right squad.
Oh yep, I somehow missed him. I would definitely take him..

that's between Lodge and his bank ... nothing to do with the NRL.

although if I was Lodge, i would be clearing it asap and moving on
Not quite.
As I recall the NRL wanted the details of the proposed repayment plan as a condition of registering him again. In fact they even had to approve it as well.
I know it’s a bit strange they got into the debt collection business but I think that’s what happened.
Anyway hopefully he can speed up this process and put it behind him ASAP.

He's a x factor type player, so rocks and diamonds is always a chance. I think as he gets older he will pick his opportunities better imo

Hopefully he does, although the same thing was always said about the Coal Train. Never clicks with some players

Normally I'd agree with that, but they were getting flogged from pillar to post about Lodge. Taking away the "but he hasn't paid his victims so he shouldn't be allowed to play and therefore never be able to earn enough to be able to pay them" line from the media took most of the heat out of it and allowed everyone to move along. In that respect the NRL probably has a legitimate interest in ensuring the matter is finalised cleanly and won't come back to bite anyone in the arse.

it was reported that he secured a bank loan to pay the settlement.

so in that case his debt is now with the bank, not the victims of his NYC incident

Don't really need Arrow. Fantastic player but we really need better backs. If Seibold is confident our up and coming backs will be stars, then sure, more forwards the better.
Yeah, I've feel like they have already put a lot of money into the forward pack. I would have taken Arrow if TPJ didn't re-sign, but now you gotta concentrate on other positions too IMO.

I get all that but still think it is setting a precedent for them to get involved in debt repayments.
Lodge won’t be the last player to end up being fined/sued.
What will happen next time?
