think if the cap shrinks the players contracts shrink also,part of the last deal the rlpa did.

The cap is shrinking next year which will hurt us given the overs most of our players are on
It won't make a difference. It's 10% across the board so it'll be the same situation with players getting 10% less.

It is only dropping by 10% ... that'll hurt other clubs much more than it will hurt us ...

It may actually benefit us since other clubs may have to release players to get under the new cap

I believe everyone's salary just goes down by 10%, I don't think it'll make a difference to the player market.

We should only consider releasing him if it would strengthen our team. If releasing him could get us a top tier 1 or 9 that would make sense (but there are not any on the market or on the outer at their club). The only other real reason i would consider it is if we could get a couple decent mid-range reliable players where we are weak (centre and second row). I know other posters have high opinions of whare as a centre and capewell as second row. I do have to say, watching tonight's game, capewell hits holes for his halves.

I’d be happy for us to swap bird with dufty +200k our way.
Edit: or I’d be happy with a Lomax swap

We can’t afford to let him leave if we aren’t replacing him with someone worthwhile. This is what Seibold did when he let a bunch of people go to replace them with nobodies he had coached before that nobody else wanted to sign.

It’s not 10% yet, Union want 5%.

Like that’s gonna happen... even our recruitment team wouldn’t be dumb enough to do that
To be fair to Stu_9, i understand where he is coming from. Although dufty has the occasional poor game in him, if he improved his consistency (which i think he did in the latter half of this year), dufty would bring some characteristics we would need to play the style of attack kevie said he wants to play. Speed, great support play, good pass on him and that "x factor".

The issue would be that we would be weakening our already slim centre stocks, and I would be looking for greater compensation though as bird and dufty are not in that same tier of player.

well, cuts both ways.....Bird isnt a free agent, still being linked with other teams.....who is to say a contracted player comes back to replace him..?

I really dont understand what St George are doing personally; they have spent millions over the last few years bringing in guys with zero attachment to the club like Hunt, Norman and now Bird (former Cronulla player remember..). The culture of the club is in the toilet, 2 players now charged with sexual assault....

And their kids coming through like Saab allowed to leave..?

I really dont understand the direction or strategy they are trying to implement here.....but then again......dont give 2 shits either frankly...

Bird was actually born in Wollongong and played NYC for the dragons

There is way too much smoke to this fire. It’ll happen and we’ll probably pay 500k+ of his salary. Absolutely rubbish unless we are getting Grant...but we won’t.

Like others have said, unless we are replacing bird with someone top shelf - we are better keeping him and trying to get value out of him. When fit hes a quality player. Not many others on the market that i can think of who would fill his shoes.

I know this may be unpopular and whilst I will probably have changed my opinion by tomorrow what if Jesse Arthars played fullback next year... we obviously aren’t signing anyone and niu was fairly underwhelming and frankly my number 1 option would be Walsh but that’s not gonna happen... Arthars with a preseason at fullback could play his preferred position with strike power and you never know could amaze some people
