Can't say I agree.manly have the right idea,once again if the reports are correct they are looking to re-sign Jake t and Tom t for a combined 2 mill that is good value for the money spent.
Turbo is pretty injury prone, but I could cop him being worth up to a million bucks a season I guess.
Where it gets messy is Jurbo is not even close to worth that. 800k would be a stretch, so in reality that deal means Turbo is costing you more like 1.2 million a season and at that price it's starting too look like a far less value for money proposition.
That's the risk you take with any player though, especially an up and coming one. He wasn't worth 700k when they signed him, but 1 year later that looks like a bargain.while 700k was a risk ... and has worked out well for the Knights ....
1.5 million is another thing entirely ... it doesn't just put him up in elite company ... it puts him up with the best of the best ... quite likely the biggest contract ever offered to a rugby league player in this country
There's a fair chance he wont be worth 1.2-1.5 million when his new contract starts in 2021, but by the time it ends in 2023-2024 and he's probably at the peak of his powers and the cap has had another 3-4 seasons of increases to mitigate it then it may well look like an absolute steal.
