Props are in high demand and low supply, I'd be surprised if you can get anyone of decent talent for less at the moment
Agreed. He feels more like a Royce Hunt style bench impact forward than a big minutes one though. If I'm the Warriors I'm all over him at that price to add some size when AFB leaves.

Comparing May to AFB is apples to oranges. AFB has 159 games. May has 25. To be as good as he is at just 25 games makes him worth $500k to someone for mine.

He played big minutes towards the end of last year and looked pretty decent to me, think his motor would be closer to bhu than Royce.

Burgo can probably give us a deeper analysis of his peak usage rate.

Yeah fair call, I must admit I haven't watched him that closely. If he has the motor then 500k could be a steal.

May played 17 games all off the bench and his time increased as the season progressed. Very serviceable minutes by end of year. Will compete with the likes of Spencer Lenui and possibly Whyte for minutes this year though.

Only had like 6 good games hasn’t he?

Still 500k isn’t too bad a price. If we assume they need to ratchet up 18% that’s comparable to between 470k for Kaufusi and 650k for Rudolf

I’d probably like to see him start the season with some efforts like he ended last year to pay it still.
And we probably don’t wanna pay it until we know if we are signing AFB either. And probably from a depth perspective still hard to bring in another middle on good money without releasing someone.

I actually think Kaufusi will come good. He wasn't "there' last year.

Yeah not only can AFB play the power forward game - he can finesse his team mates over the line inside the 20 meter zone with a great short pass .

He’s the guy that can rival Hass ..

Or the year before either…..

What we saw this year is completely the same as last year.

People were all fired up about him and how great he is….

We have made him into a myth (as parramatta supporters never rated him)

Noafolouma has been told by Benji he’s free to leave the tigers. They’re now looking at all options to move him on including super league. Currently on 500k.

Kaufusi just needs to play with more intensity and aggression next season, otherwise move him on or swap deal for 2025. Would rather give a spot to someone thats hungrier. 2025 will be our real chance to be contenders
