    Supposedly about to make Brandon Smith one of their marquee signings on 900k p/y

    I'm really torn on Smith because I love him as a player but geez I think he's overrated.

    I guess they're going to have to overspend one way of another to get a decant 17 within 12 months time.

    I like to see Cam Smith on a one year come back, with the Dolphins which leads to a mass storm exodus by the other Queenslanders
  4. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Smith isn't worth over 600k. There was some rumour about them offering Ponga 1.4m/year too.
  5. Magic AJ Parker

    Speaking of overrated, Felise Kafusi is their first official signing.
    Sultan Pepper and Cribbage like this.

    1.4m is massive but I think you really struggle to fill your cap first season anyway given they’ve only been given 12months to recruit a side. If it was front loaded wouldn’t be the worst call IMO.
    AVA, morgieb and Cribbage like this.
  7. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    The way players can get out of contracts these days, I don't think they'll have issues filling their cap.
  8. morgieb MC Burridge

    Problem is that they’ve missed out on the best players on the market. I’m not sure there’s really anyone worth over $500k that would join at this point.
  9. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    God I hate the Felise Kafusi is their first signing. Total passenger
  10. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I don't think they will have a problem landing someone who is contracted for 2024 and getting them a year early. There are always clubs trying to offload big players who they signed for overs.
  11. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah but picking up cunts signed for overs is never a great strat. See: Dragons.
  12. Qwerty HD Roberts

    It's kind of worked for Newy. If you can call barely scraping into the 8 for the last two seasons working.
  13. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    It's a good strategy if you can sign cunts like Hodgson, Thompson, Lodge etc instead of guys like McCullough, Mbye, Bird, McGuire etc
  14. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Who are some of the depth guys off contract for 2023? I actually thought they would have had another couple signed by now
  15. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Farnworth, Isaako, Oates, Turpin, Elliot, Harawira-Naera, Hodgson, Horsburgh, Sutton, Dufty, Faitala-Mariner, Vaughan

    That's just from Broncos, Raiders and Bulldogs. There's fuckin shitloads available for 2023.
  16. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Did I see they've signed Ray Stone?
  17. AVA T Delonge

    Indeed, not a bad pick up as a bench player.
  18. Magic AJ Parker

    CEO labelling Ray Stone as a depth signing when he’s only their 2nd signing.

    Poor bastard.
  19. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Dolphins have apparently signed Isaako on a 3 year deal

    He is an NRL winger, he could possibly handle playing left centre. Just needs to realise he isn't a fullback.
