so with Eels trying to register Lodge for the rest of the season. I wonder if there are some dominos to fall with Kaufusi coming here early.

I must say i paid good attention to him in tonights game. He would be very usefull.

Well apparently the NRL have set Lodge at a full $200k value if a club was to sign him for the remainder of the year, with apparently not many clubs with that money left to spend.

Depending how much room the Eels and us have, we could take Kaufusi off them to allow just enough for them to sign Lodge.

But might also seem weird them swapping a front rower for a front rower, unless they see Lodge as an upgrade or a long term deal. Hopefully it happens though.

I'd think they're looking to add to their pack not add Fusi to ours and replace him.

I’d say if they take him it would be for more than the rest of this year.
They are losing a few props end of the season so he could fill one of those spots (and start earlier by joining this season).

Staines apparently talking to the Tigers about wanting to play full back. You'd think he'd talk to the Dogs.

Anyone is an upgrade on Laurie. He is dreadful.

Staines was behind Laurie at Penrith so **** knows what the tigers are thinking here.
The tigers already have Douehi who is a way better option at the back than both IMO.

Gus is a master bullshitter but a journo would dream something up overnight and call it 'mail'

I thought the Dogs wanted a Bulldogs man, someone experienced , a hard ass that commands respect? Fitler doesn't make much sense after getting rid of Barret beyond the connection with Gould.

They may as well just give Potter rest of the season to show if he is up to it

Douehi can also play 6, I like that he’s not afraid to take a game on
