All true, but to be brutally honest, the club will have fucked up if we're relying on him being our number 7 in 2025. We should well and truly have a succession plan in place by then. And even if Adam is still our first pick, how much of the cap do we allocate to him?Stoked. The impact he has had on the club has been amazing. He's also an incredible player.
I can see why his agent is moving on this now, but I don't think it's in the club's best interest to lock themselves in. Unless Donuts can wangle some kind of Darius deal that could transition him into the coaching staff should he look like a burden on the cap.
Maybe whatever mystery conversation they had with Oates that resulted in those two years of player options, that kind of arrangement might be the answer. Or Kevvie's contract: filled with clauses.
In the meantime, he could use another premiership ring.
