    In light of Foz and DCE walking we seem to have cash to throw around. (first time in a long time i think).

    Lets assume we have $2m to spend for 2016 (remembering guys like mason are off contract).

    Name your wishlist and if you like, what you would spend (in 2016).

    Here is mine:
    1. Elgey $250K
    2. Maloney $500k (going to need that sort of coin to poach him off chooks)
    3. S Burgress $400K from us and $200K with dispensation from the NRL to intice him back, under there new supposed 'keeping players in the NRL' rule, so 600K all up.
    4. T Burgess $300K
    5. Extension for Matt Ballin, upgrade to keep Jake and Tom Turbo, and then some coin to keep some other top performing juniors (like Sao).

    EDIT: I respect we may need to pay 800K+ for burgess.

    Its was 400K plus 200K outside the cap with dispensation from the NRL. So 600K.

    But I respect he may want 800k plus.

    Sam Burgess would cost 1mil per season and be worth every cent

    In an ideal world

    Maloney/Sezer
    Elgey/Cornish
    Sam Burgess/Napa/T Burgess

    Out - Wolfman, DCE, Foran, Horo, Hasson

    The beauty of having Buhrer in the team. If he is injured, bring in another backrower.

    Our pack doesn't need a massive overhaul

    Turbo will be a gun, JSL, Lui, Starling all have improvement in them

    We just need 1 big name, leader....................ideally Sam Burgess

    You won't even get his big toe for 600k. Merrin got 750k for goodness sake. Tom Burgess would be a lot more than 300k as well.

    You dont have any, just props, that is the problem.

    3 props and a hodges/symonds would be a better balance.

    G'day all,Ideal scenario S Burgess D Klemmer keep DCE.More realistically any ofT Burgess, Mose Masoe,A Docker or Gallen is a possibility.If we can't keep DCE any of the commonly suggested half options would thrive behind the forward pack with a couple of those forwards in it.
    cheers mike

    Maybe our recruitment leader could shed some light on the back plan.
