Bear in mind they have paid too much for everyone else on their list as well, how do they afford him?

Have a look at their backline. Nothing there apart from Ponga.

Dan Saifiti deserves a mention in that group, too. He’s now an Origin forward.

Frizell in the 2nd row, Ponga at the back, Pearce in the halves....I dunno man, it looks like the makings of a half decent side to me.
Half decent side yes, premiership winning, no.

Frizell in general is being massively over-rated here. He is a great player but he isn't even in the top 10 forwards in the comp. People are acting like he is the missing piece to a premiership puzzle and he just isn't.

He was two years ago mate. Pretty sure he was an Australian backrower.

The De Belin/St Merge thing really got under his skin and he had a quiet year last year.

It’ll be interesting to see what now happens to Fifita. The NRL came out yesterday and said that they will not be registering any contracts any time soon until they sort out this mess and probably look at the cap moving forward.
I assume Frizell hasn’t actually signed or got in before all this went down.

Frizell is an absolute gun. Would take him in a heartbeat. I'd find it hard to find 10 better forwards in the game:

1. Haas
2. JT2

After that, he is definitely in the conversation. Brisbane's pack obviously has potential on their side but in terms of second rowers even, he is in the conversation as the best.

He may and likely will end there, but Haas isn't above Lolo yet. Those 2 are on a category of their own though.
