rick stone says the club is working on tying players down to new deals that they want or are trying to keep, some are being courted by sl/nrl teams

we have got ikahihifo , roberts and clough signed up, the former two will no doubt be on improved deals leaving less cap space

so that leaves these

brough (apparently getting a 1 yr deal for me at this point id rather watch gaskell & rankin at half back!)

ferguson .. think he could be the one whos getting interest from elsewhere, we need to sign him up been our best performer so far this season

hinchlfffe - fair to say he will be going and we can use his money to better effect elsewhere

mamo - think he will be the one with nrl interest stone speaks of.

murphy - difficult one with mcintosh waiting in the wings

wakeman - not too fussed if he goes home

taai - not sure what deal hes on

I'd go:

Symonds - Release.
Wakeman - Release.
Hinchliffe - Release.
Murphy - Release.
Ferguson - 2 year deal.
Brough - Release.
Mamo - 2 year deal if his form picks up.

Brough - well he’s not the player he was- but replacing him would be difficult. Of those left there is only Hinchcliffe who I’d be sorry to see leave. The rest are easily replaceable with similar players.

Agree with this. Shame about Symonds , good player but clearly one injury away from retirement. Now is the time to start scouring upcoming talent for the Brough replacement. It will be very hard whenever we do it, but the end of this year is the right time to start fresh for me. We really can't change the way we play until Brough is replaced, time for the club to look upward and do the neccesary, but i fear they will play it safe and give him another year, prolonging the agony.

We should have looked after Connor properly and we would have been sorted. Worst decision we've made in recent years to try and get him on the cheap. Ironically we replaced him with older more expensive players, of a similar ability with less potential in gaskell and rankin.

we could replace brough now with gaskell.

but brough is staying so we are stuck with poor attack and awful goal kicking for at least another season.

hinchcliffe will highly likely be going home.

Wasn’t he dropped when he lost the captaincy?

Realistically though it's the Giants we're talking about here, more likely scenarios:

Symonds - he'll get fit and have a couple of decent games, get a 2 year deal deal of the back of it and then get injured.

Hinchliffe - New 2 year deal with Stone commenting "He's a well respected member of the squad"

Murphy - Similar scenario but a 3 year deal. "We're glad murph chose to end his career with the Giants, a hugely popular figure in the dressing room"

Wakeman - I think he'll 100% be going.

Brough - 1 year deal. "Important figure at the club who has still got it at 35 and great kicking game"

Mamo - I thought be would be going but after recent performances, no NRL could would have him. He'll end up in the NSW cup or get a 3 year deal here.

Ferguson - 3 year deal.
