With the Lodge deal falling through I'm now concerned that we are going to continue trying to free up cash by offloading somebody else.....like TPJ.

Starting to get worried about our recruitment tbh.
Sure we landed Reynolds but he is only one piece of the puzzle.
Apparently Hodgson is a certainty to the club for 2022 and sounds like he is on 800k and the faiders don’t want to chip anything in + sounds like he will want an extension. I wouldn’t want to be signing Hodgson on anything more then 500k, 800k is a big no from me. He hasn’t showed much in the last 18months or so either..
We really, really needed to land Hynes but that didn’t happen. Also sounds like dufty will be at the faiders + capewell at the cows. Leaving us most likely with sua and Walters jnr - both are not needed and aren’t going to help our situation.
I don’t see 2022 being a whole lot better then this year, it’s worrying signs unless we can land an A grade FB (doesn’t look like there any on the market) and a decent 9 ie B.Smith (yes I know it won’t happen.)
Why would Dufty go to the Raiders unless CNK's injury is far worse than originally thought.

With Knights not taking lodge, we loose our budget.
What does 'loose our budget' mean?

Do you mean we lose something? Or our budget becomes loose somehow? What do you mean?

they're were initially talking about a backup for CNK given he has a serious neck injury ... but the chat lately is that the would move CNK into the centers

This idea of moving into the centres comes from Kent, normally he is woeful at getting these scoops but he is friends with Stuart, so maybe he’s right here.

Surely we wouldn't of saved to much that we can't make anymore signings.
I don't understand why we think Lodge needs to go anywhere. Any team needs two strong props and we get that with Haas and Lodge. I cannot help but think there are other factors of which we are oblivious. After Haas and Lodge I think our prop standard plummets and we need two quality guys at the very minimum.

Reading my very own tea leaves I think it's:
- $600k available for a spine player
- Lodge off the books frees up another $650-$750k for more spine investment
- Lodge off the books also removes the possibility of his PO's for 23 & 24
- I'd say the $600k was originally intended for Hynes, Capewell, etc.
- I'd also say $600k or so of the cash freed up from Lodge would've been used for Hodgson

Now that Hynes is off the market I dont think we are as desperate to offload Lodge... but they may still want him off the books to free up the cash for 23 and 24.

I dont think it's personal between KW and Lodge, it's just circumstances.

Lodge is effectively off contract as of November 1 this year (due to the PO's)... so if he can find a new home then Broncos won't stand in his way

Look, I don't disagree but I don't understand the math. Next year we aren't paying anything for Milford, that's a million straight away. We also no longer are chipping in for Bird, Offa or McCullough and conservatively that has to total 900k. How can we possibly need money? Also, no Coates PLUS anyone else we've dumped. There simply must be cash available even with the purchase of Reynolds.

Kaufusi was shit too, I thought the Titans forward off the bench was outstanding.
I honestly saw Fotuaiki everywhere that night and was surprised with how low his numbers were. Not that they were bad, just looked like he did far more than that. Kaufusi has always been terrible for Queensland. You could replace him with someone like Flegler and get the same game out of him. Constant stupid mistakes from him.
