Didn’t Inglis get medically retired from the Nrl so it didnt count against souths salary cap!
Then he pops up in the Super league.
What a joke, just another case of double standards from the NRL 🤯
Not defending Souths here, but Inglis decided to not accept any payment for the last 18 months of his contract as he said he lost the desire to play.
Souths offerd him a position as a development officer for around $300K a year [ nice work if you can get it] which would be deducted off Souths' salary cap whilst he was still playing, which is all academic now as he left them to go to the UK

Altho we knew it was coming, jetski for Ben turbo is pathetic.. jetski has had more than enough chances, and apart from making a dreadful centre in a pinch, ads nothing..
Also, I expect rapana to score atleast 2 trys straight past suli..

As poster by @40 years an eagle in the signings thread...


Tevita Pangai jnr looms as the latest big name to join the Belmore rebuild with a release from Brisbane to take up a three-year Bulldogs deal in the works.

and also...

Meanwhile the Bulldogs are closing in on the signature of former Dragons prop Paul Vaughan.

It 'feels' like the dogs are assembling a decent team (although they said that about the Knights a few years ago) so maybe Trent will get some better results. Still need to be a good coach though (unless you're mal and the s.o.o. side).

The buying of a sacked player is always a weird one to me.

1 club terminates a contract based on actions not deemed acceptable by their own and nrl standards... then immediately another team goes 'yay....bonus player!' and snaps them up.

Depends on what the nrl does re contract approval, I guess.

It is all very well to pay overs for Burton, JAC, Cotric, TPJ. Vaughan etc, etc, but they are mercenaries. Without a spine they will go nowhere. Even their 13 is a big money defender without ball-skills Until they land a 1/2, a 9 and a FB (JAC is not a FB's maid) they will lose far more than they will win...even with a top shelf coach. They can't possibly have enough money left to buy a good spine unless they have the Rorters accounting skills.

How do Melbourne fit all their spine players in when fully fit?
Smith, Grant, Hughes, Munster, Hynes and Papenhuyzen.
Smith to 13 and Hynes to centre is an option but more likely one or two of them come off the bench. One hell of a selection headache. Staggering to think one of them could miss out.
