I’m glad we didn’t sign him. Few come back from ACL to be as good as before. Move on

I’d be wary of Watkins, his age and coming off an ACL injury and Leeds playing him in the second row, he’s on the down, 5 years ago I’d have paid that.



Agreed.

Would have been crazy to throw that much cash at him.

I know it may not be accurate regarding the level of offer but if true it does concern me that we were looking to go to that level for him.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

It goes to show we must be willing to spend then which is a good sign. For 230k you could get Curtis Scott from Melbourne, young, right sided, good defensively but not out of our reach salary wise.

We need to be looking for props and halfbacks before moving on to any other positions.

As they were saying this morning Melbourne have (for example) three talented young full-backs, all well up to NRL standard already. Bet they've got a few good young forwards too.

They're also watching one of ours very closely.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row

Is it just Wigan that puts everyone in the shop window or does a players contract include a free for sale/rent advert in the Sydney Herald?

How are they putting them in the shop window and how do you stop other teams looking at your players?

If you were a top NRL, or even RU scout, would you not be keeping an eye on the players in the Wigan academy?

It's the price we pay for the success we've had.

If we were genuinely in for Watkins and we offered that kind of money, it suggests to me that perhaps the writing is on the wall for Gildart. I really hope not.
It also adds weight to the Brenko Lee rumours who may well leave Gold Coast on the back of them signing Watkins.
