The club not picking up jensen's option and signing Iro to a top 30 deal seems like a pretty straight swap surely?
Dunno... depends on needs and who else they keep around I guess. One could argue that Hiroti is still a better player than Iro (for now).

I meant $-$ wise but definitely see your point.
Oh - yeah - I think teams these days worry about filling 23-24 of the top 26 first, and then those other spots 27-30 at minimum wage they can worry about later on. You could swap in one of a dozen guys for Jensen with no change in $.

Samrani and Taukamo could both be on decent coin though (not minimum). Apparently there were a few teams chasing each of them when they re-signed.

I've updated Post #1 with Nikora, plus I've added each of the players joining for 2023 to the main list. This doesn't include Junior Taupau, who is just 18 and will likely be playing SG-Ball or Flegg.

25 players under contract for next year, though some of these will likely end up on the dev list.

Here is your new list of off-contract players.

Royce Hunt
Franklin Pele (was talk of other teams chasing him)
Wade Graham
Andrew Fifita (talk of him going to Wakefield to play with David)
Jensen Taumoepeau (club option)
Matt Moylan (rumoured to have 2 year extension in the works)
Mawene Hiroti
Aiden Tolman
Jayden Berrell
Jack Martin
Kade Dykes (Tigers are apparently chasing him)
Jonaiah Lualua
Jackson Ferris (has been back playing with Glebe)
Kayal Iro

I want the following to stay :

Dykes
Iro
Hunt (1 year deal)
Moylan
Tolman (1 year deal)
Luala
Berrell

Rest I don’t mind.

I do want Fifita and Graham though here in an off field role though when they do actually retire.

Tolman is a no brainer
From the games I’ve watched with Newtown berrell looks a good depth option. Luala I haven’t noticed much but word from a few of the guys on here rate him. All the players I’d like us to retain will all be cheap. Bar Moylan. So it’s possible to actually happen.
