Keeper. Probably on close to minimum wage too by the sounds of it.

Yep, at 28 he probably has 3-4 more years in him at best, unless he can evolve his game away from his running game and explosiveness out of dummy half.

Wouldn’t be adverse to a contract extension and a bit of extra cash for him. ATM, I’d happily give him next year as well and then he can earn the final 2-3 years through performance.

The real truth is he COULD be on 400k next year. No, I don't mean that's what we will or could offer him but what he could make happen. If he has a stellar season and propels the Broncos to real threat status his stocks could rise enormously. Imagine if he gave it everything and started scoring tries left right and centre, the Broncos would be noticed and the question raised would be 'what turned the Broncos around?'

If a revival happens and the miracle scenario eventuates he will get his name up in lights. The Broncos are big news and sure, AS would get enormous credit but Segeyaro would be noticed because it happened when he joined. No, I'm not saying it would be due to his arrival but a lot won't see it that way. A new attitude, great wraps from team mates and media alike and a dearth of Cook like hookers available.

Like I said, it's a scenario that COULD happen and equally he might only play two games for us too! I'll bet he's loving the ride atm. Living in interesting times.

I'd say yes with both hands, but depends what he's asking, and whether we can unload Macca. Can we afford three specialist hookers on the books?

There's also the question of when to pounce. His forward value might be good as it gets right now if he ends up having a stellar season for us and attracts outside bids. Which I think he will.

3-4 weeks in the team should give a better gauge of his on field performance, training ethic and relationship with others in the team. I would be looking to make a call then. Probably get him at that time at a reasonable price before other teams come sniffing.

This. The guy was out in the wilderness for a long time with nobody willing to take the chance. I don't know why that is but it certainly makes me hesitant. I'd go with 3-4 weeks of him in the team and offer him another year. I don't want to pounce before we know him a bit better, but I don't want us to wait until his stocks rise...and I think they will. Also dependent on what happens with Macca.

We would be absolutely crazy to tie him down to a decent deal. I wouldn't even contemplate it until after the final game. If he gets a decent deal elsewhere so be it. If he does well and doesnt show a bit of loyalty to a team thats helped him get back on track then stuff him.

Yip keep him hungry to perform. Once he realises how good this team is shaping up to be I think he'll be more than happy to stay. He has also said that this is a great base from which to make a tilt at origin. So there is that too.

Looks like there trying to off load Macca.(well according to the courier)
Who would want to buy him... maybe some English club.
