Would he go there to be behind Bateman and Papalii but?
Bateman sometimes plays middle.

He’s a good edge player, but having him be more heavily involved can be a positive for the team.

He might if he's mad. Both these dudes play 80 minutes don't they? Puts him in the same position he's in at the Cows.

They do have to replace Blore though I suppose

4 years @ $900k :eek:
Where did you get that figure from mate?
Seems odd to offer a guy more than he's getting to leave a club he doesn't want to be at. And I can't imagine there's a huge amount of interest

Was rumoured to be on around 800k when he signed for Cows wasn’t he?

Call that 765ish instead, and with the 18% bump to all contracts since you’ve got 900k.

The article said $700k, but it is ZT, so anything else could be true.

Sure, I was quite possibly misremembering anyway

So say that was actually more like 730 though that’d be up to like 860k through the 2023 ratchet, I guess maybe there would have been a much smaller ratchet for this year with another cap raise, but that could have him around 880k… near enough to round up.

Maybe he did score some bonus padding on the contract but I think that could explain a lot of the increase.

Because them just dropping an extra 200k on him (even if cows were paying like 400k) seems extortionate.
Surely cows couldn’t be paying more than that.

Well that actually confirms me guess haha
Although interesting it days 15% when until reported figure was 18%
That was before deal was actually finalised though but negotiated it down?

Feels like Canberra signing kind of makes their Hosking signing a waste?
Whitehead and Young, use Leilua off the bench with view to taking over for Whitehead next season. Hosking kind of becomes surplus to requirement?
