Convenient excuse.the Newcastle Herald (via Fox Sports) say that "fan backlash" is the reason for the Knights ending their pursuit of Lodge
I heard rumours he’s putting on the 7 jersey this week
Got the latest Intrust cup footage of this up and coming 5/8th playing for Wynnum Manly, might be worth a dig at that centre too!
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.
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.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.
Cruise Ten ? Is he from the future ?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.
Wow, an actual good article in the news for once. Whether you agree or not, this guy actually put effort into his analysis.
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!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.
