the Newcastle Herald (via Fox Sports) say that "fan backlash" is the reason for the Knights ending their pursuit of Lodge
Convenient excuse.

Although it looks inept that they wouldnt have considered that before approaching.

Considering how long the saga went on for it was clearly because they failed in negotiations to get us paying 75% of his wages for the next 5yrs.


I'm assuming Fox will use this as an excuse to regurgitate Lodge's history... so people please remember

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.

For me he's a thug and that's his role within the team and also at Melbourne.

His job is to bully the halves, any bloke could do it. Even for the Storm you can't say he's a big reason as to why they win footy games.

Dunno if we're linked with Cruise Ten, he's playing for South's Logan in Q Cup. He's a bit short but looks really powerful, does heaps of work and has some good footwork. Definitely looks like he's the modern 13.

One to keep an eye on.

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.
Yes Milford’s $1M is gone and whatever we were left paying for Macca, Bird & Offa, but we’ve spent $700K on Reynolds, upgraded Staggs by about $500K and upgraded Piakura from development contract to $400K already that is $1.6M of next year’s cap that was being taken up by those players.

Cruise Ten ? Is he from the future ?

Upgraded Staggs by 'about 500k' you say. How much was he getting before? It's a 10mil cap next year and we have a top notch half, premium centre and a regular centre, world class pair of props, Piakura and a world class second rower for 3.7 mil thereabouts. Out of the remaining 6.3 we should be able to pick up a handy no1 and in fact we have Fleg and Kennedy for less than a million so that leaves 5.4 for Carrigan, a quality hooker and a decent 5/8. ****, we've got the guts of a good team and still only spent half!

No, I'm sorry but I think the alleged bad salary cap position disappears with 2021.
