Jennings Money

I thought it would be interesting to hear what you blokes think we need in our team. What kind of player should target with Jennings salary? Would you be looking to add a back like Braidon Burns or should we target a foward?

      • That's it. The key is having a stable spine in place. They lift everyone else's performances, which is why they seem like value buys. A stable spine that has time together & repetitions under its belt makes everyone else better. 

  • This is our current list with Jennings removed. I note that Sam Hughes is still on there despite the mystery surrounding what he's up to. Not sure how the whole parting ways with Jennings works as each NRL Club is supposed to have 29 contracted players as at the end of March and then 30 at the end of June. We are obviously 1 short now, so there's 2 signings to come before 30th June. I imagine we could move Roache into the Top 30 from the Development Squad and another cheap signing from somewhere? Interesting to see how it plays out in the next month.

    • You haven't included Perham.

      • It's from the NRL site and is supposed to be up to date as of today. Did he go into the Top 30?

        • It took them about a week to move Greig from Cowboys to Parra.

    • Interestingly, the "expendible" players are all given 1 year contracts. This gives the club a lot of flexibility and means that some are likely to depart next year if we upgrade the "keeper" players and/or buy in new players. I have faith that the club knows exactly what it is doing with the squad.

      Agreed that the club is probably looking to fill MJs spot very soon.

      • Apparently the club has a policy of not offering contracts or extensions longer than 2 years. This is the cause of the delay with Nathan Brown apparently. He was told the club only gave out two year deals from now on but they've made an exception for Mitch Moses & Brownie now has his nose bent out of shape. 

        • Haha well if NBrown wants to try out for halfback, I'm sure he would be welcome. Of course the club would make exceptions for one of its marquee players.

          • Of course, this was all revealed by Danny Wiedler on 100% Footy on Monday night, and Gus' simple response to Brownie was take the two years and back yourself, which I think he'll do. 
            Playmakers are always exceptions 

    • I think the Eels are being very good to Sam Hughes by keeping him as a listed top 30 player whilst he deals with his personal problems. 
      I wonder just how much lattitude they will give Sam as they could easily demote him  and push Nathaniel Roache into the top 30.
