So the club has let the punk negotiate. Sounds like we want a release fee at least. Does this kid even effect our cap. Is releasing him any better for us then letting him sit out at home.

It’s most likely nothing but Phil Gould spotted at Red Hill.
If he’s in Brisbane to meet with the little ingrate, at least make them meet anywhere but in our inner sanctum.

Unless it’s a deal to broker a swap between Karl and Mahoney, I could get behind that.

Not as it stands. That's what this is all about.

The base cap allowance covers the top 30, with a further allowance for players developed by the club prior to becoming NRL player. He's currently down as a development player. At any rate, he wasn't on much (enough according to him).

What's more of a worry is it looks like the club had him earmarked in the Reynolds succession. Our depth in the halves in worryingly thin. Good enough to get us through the season, hopefully, but the next generation halfback is far from clear. He was probably it.

We might need to look towards frontloading a couple of contracts, like Patty and Herbie, ahead of Reynold's retirement if we need to go to market for a marquee half (like Tommy Dearden) again.

Some interesting images out of training:

Apparently Billy doesn't support, although evidence would seem to the contrary.

Selwyn looking pretty fit to be honest.

Not sure who said that. I said no-one (<--- note well) supports Payne, but it wouldn't hurt our attack if the bloke who passes him the ball, which is usually Billy (when he's on the field) trundled along beside him after he releases it. Just in the off chance he might score off it. Or something.
