Yeah, saw that on 9 news Bris, said he'd like to remain a Bronco, but in the end it's what sort of money you get is the overriding thing for many players. If Haas stays a Bronco no doubt the Broncs will have to up the ante on Haas's contract money, this could work in our favour and may have to let Flegler or others go....who knows, that's 24, we'll see what develops?.
Yeah money is always the overriding factor no doubt he prefer to stay but broncos have salary cap issues

Flegler would say that , in the hope the Thoroughbreds do a back door deal to keep him.

I wouldn’t write him off based on what was said just yet.
 
Was just chatting to Scotty Drinkwater at the Gym. He said Condon could be anything but lacked fitness and if he made a mistake he tended to drop his head. Plays on an edge but is massive so will end up in the middle. He played close to 80 mins in Qld Cup last year.

That’s just “ negotiations talk “.

The issue the Donkeys have is they want to keep Payne Haas ad he wants big dollars too. Personally can’t see them keeping both of them.
Yeah, my point as well. Just got this awful feeling that what we are offering is the leftovers from the soon to be released 2023 cap increase. And being that all clubs will all get the same increase, it puts us in the bidding circle with all the rest going for half a dozen or so good forwards coming of contract at the end of 23. Just hoping that we have a lot more than just the 675k a season that we have reported to have offered Flegler ?

Must admit that I don’t get with Marty & Dylan gone why we didn’t have funds to go hard for 2023.

And why is it any better in 2024??
 
Pretty sure there would be some substantial upgrades to players included in our increased salary cap including Haumole, Koula and Garrick.

Correct me if I'm wrong but 2024 have a lot of players of contract compared to 2021, 2022, and 2023.

Probably Saab , Schuster , Paseka and Lawton as well . Then maybe Froggy in recent times also . Would have paid some reasonable coin for Tuilagi as well , Not sure of the cap situation with Latu Fainu , Previously signed for 4 years or so for around 1 . 2 mil and now in the squad or even last season , would have to think some cap associated relevance .

Plus a whole lot of good promising juniors on the way up, maybe just keeping some cap money in reserve to tie them up for Manly in the coming years ahead.
