    Ok - so we know the salary cap went from 3.3 million to 4 million. (That's $700k)
    We also know BK has left our shores (That's $250k)
    We also know Leuluai has left our shores (That's $120k)
    We see Cleal / Witt / Stephenson gone say $100k each (That's $300k)
    Say Lennon / Styles / Creary on $50k each (That's $150k)

    If you had:- $1,520,000 to spend (around), can someone please go shopping, and tell me if there is a large difference?

    For mine:-

    $400k - Lyon
    $250- Orford (upgrade)
    $100k - Hall
    $70k Afamasanga
    $50k - Neuman
    $50k - Bani

    That's $920k added to Cart (hehehehe)
    Then take into consideration around $300k worth of upgrades.

    Wouldn't that leave us bucket loads of room?

    Opinion's. If you had $1,520,000 worth of cap, how would it be spent in our position. Do y'all think we are front loading?

    $1 million gone on orford and lyon.

    Ryan the average salary for the old cap was 130K - i dont think players outside the top 17 would be close to that

    Hall was reported to be on $60k, pretty sure that was the figure thrown around in a interview where he was backing his ability to play well and sign a bigger deal in 08.

    Ok - so there's potentially more. Spend up.

    The strategy was to buy one or two blue chips per year. One prop and one backrower for 08 is the go. I wonder who the prop will be?

    I'd:-

    Release Jason King
    Beaver will retire
    Luke Williamson to retire
    Shayne Dunley to retire
    Michael Robertson "offered" release
    Buy Pual Gallen
    Buy Luke O'Donnell
    Buy Mark O'Meley


    That makes:-

    01. Brett Stewart
    02. Steve Matai
    03. Jamie Lyon
    04. Steven Bell
    05. Chris Hicks
    06. Travis Burns
    07. Matt Orford
    08. Brent Kite
    09. Michael Monaghan
    10. Mark O'Meley
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Paul Gallen
    13. Luke O'Donnell

    14. Matt Ballin
    15. Mark Bryant
    16. George Rose
    17. Jack Afamsanga
