I don’t think they’ll be worried. They’ll hope to grind out a 12-9th spot finish based off of their forward pack, heavily front load all their players to allow a hugely inflated cap over the next few seasons and all of a sudden come 2024 they could afford Hunt (1m), Munster(1m), and Fifita(700). Maybe even Herbie (500)
Come 2024 their spine could look like
instantly making them a team players will go to for unders.
They should start to worry if they continue to miss the big names available after November
Their spine could be either of those that’s true, it could also be the rubbish they will run out next year too if they continue to miss the big names and nothing so far inspires confidence they will land anyone. Plus, this vaunted forward pack will be a year older as will Bennett. It’s a massive gamble and it is just as likely to go belly up. The NRL have thrown them under the bus.
