Simple, vote for the options that are being rumoured at the moment.

Personally I'd prefer front loading some contracts for the 2019 season so the cash is rolled over for use in 2020.

I'm keen to see what the young fellas have.

Can we put me as an option there, thanks... but I’ve gone SJ and AJ, based on comments on another thread. I think we’re ok for forwards for now. Tapau is a marquee and I don’t want him being ours

I agree with with HB. Should call 2019 the GAP year cant see the sharks winning the comp let all the young players get a crack and see what 2010 brings....

Would like for SJ and Taupau.

I just don’t like AJ.

Didn’t we have a crack at getting Dylan Walker to us only a few years back

I’m happy to see how we go this year with what we’ve got, maybe experiment a little.. if it doesn’t work out go hard next year for some players.

If we go with what we have got, we are 14th

You reckon? I’m not convinced. Don’t get me wrong if someone really good becomes available and fits in with what we are looking for we should be all over it, but I don’t want us to panic buy (I.e. players like Dufty).

The ones being rumoured at the moment are all still under contract for 2019, I don’t see those clubs releasing them, except maybe Manly with Tapau. I’d take him if that happened.

I’d still love to see Barba back in 2020

In your head, rent free
AJ will be released
SJ will be released
Dylan Walker was all but signed at the Tigers
Everyonr at Parra is being shopped around, 2 of their players have had lunch with Flanno this week.

We are 1.5 mil under the cap for 2019. Better to make a play and make us better, than finish 14th and have to pay overs to get players to join in 2020

Agree , playing young guys ( whilst may give some a warm fuzzy feeling) that aint nrl ready does more harm than good...it’s a long season and will be hard on there bodies... if you got the cash spend it.. it’s not like like flanno goes off spending money like a drunken sailor, makes you wonder what he used to think when he sat next to Ricky and watched him spend overs on spuds. Taupau and gutho would get my attention.

Who knows if reports are true or not & we are under the pump for $, if true, I’d suspect we use the req min amount in our cap to ease the burden & the club put a spin on it saying we are promoting within with a young guys.
