if tino goes it all starts to fall apart on the Goldy surely, theyre already a club purely offering a payday but their legitimacy falls even further if they lose tino or even fifita

Maybe they'll offer him a million too then rename themselves to the Backrow Titans. Kinda hope they do, they sure are dumb enough.

Tino has been a mercenary from day 1 so I wouldn't expect anything less.

Must admit i'd never thought that about him. Think he only left us because we signed Payne.

It does seem a bit like he is chasing the money, but at a guess somebody from the Dolphins has tapped him up.

I don't hate him for it, good for him TBH. I only really dislike mercenary types when they pretend not to be, AKA Folau.

Tino/Welch/Grant would be 3 realistic targets for the Dolphins, I hope they do well. Another strong QLD club makes it harder for the NRL to continuously treat QLD as second rate.

I reckon the new club hurts Melbourne the most

They've made a habit of taking the QLD kids that we either didn't see or didn't want

Melbourne has been a success but only because they've had arguably the best coach in the comp for a long time now and a few rep spine players who fell into their lap along the way, you can't really say it's promoted Rugby League in Melbourne, I can't recall a Melbourne based kid come through their ranks

Its fantastic that Vlandys hasn't thought this through (that isn't surprising). He's made the right decision purely for money and you can be sure Melbourne are privately panicking. They will need to find a new pipeline and we all know it isn't going to be Victoria because that would require too much effort.

I'd still take him back.

He didnt want to leave and even said can I go for a year get paid and then come back.

It would be a huge boost to our legitimacy if Fifita came back almost immediately after leaving... in the same way that Hodgo came back

As long as it’s back to what he should be getting paid which is 750k

Yeah exactly... that's his worth.

Ultimately it will be us vs GC vs Dolphins for where he goes next.

If he chooses us over GC or dolphins for $700-$750 then that's a huge gain for us.

Think he's off contract end of 2023, so dolphins will have been in the comp for 12 months and wont have that $10m clean slate available... if they blow their load on Tino, Munster, etc. then they may not have their ducks in a row to line up Fifita without blowing out their squad balance.
