Worth every penny. Throw similar money at Val Holmes and if we can get 1 of the 2 we are in business.
I honestly cannot see French moving from FB, at least not in the short term. I'm only guessing but I'd say Guth back to the centres and Bird to 5/8.
Bird not here to play fb but in the halves. The only two spots he wants is fb and 5/8 and he will get 5/8 spot. Big money, more than what we are paying Norman, but think further strengthening the forwards and a good hooker are more important.
If we get him and Kyle Feldt to replace semi
Agreed. Whoever replaces Semi will be a massive down grade. He is just that bloody good. At least with these 2 we would still have a power winger and with Birds ability to break tackles we'd be very dangerous all over the park.
Could all be rumours though so not getting excited in round 3.
can't defend, Feldt much better
At that sort of money for three years, pass.
Not that he isn't a good player but that is WAY more money than Jack Bird is worth a season.
Besides, I still think he stays with the Sharks.
