Hi all, So - putting all of the emotion to the side for a moment, it appears that our club will commit $2.5m/season (or more) to having 3 local juniors at our club for the full lifetime of their laying careers. I speak of DCE, and 2 x Turbo's (for those wondering) That is our core, with the hooker and 5/8 role to be filled with some cheaper options. Thoughts on our strategy? IMO - it isn't too bad. We have chosen the cream of the crop, and locked them in long term - avoiding uncertainty in future. It means we will also have to get used to having 'bit part' players in many other positions. This isn't dissimilar to the Storm approach - but it requires a MUCH STRONGER culture from within to bring about success.
