No we should select on form, not on unknown potential. If Fifita shows what he did in the trials he will indeed have a future and will get a go in 1sts soon.We do lnt need Boyle or sipley to be next up. We all know what they can and can’t do in firsts.
We should be giving Fifita a taste to measure him in firsts and maybe reassure him he has a future here and is part of the plan
Sipley and Boyle are simply depth. Not up and comers with unknown potential/value
I called this scenario months ago, and considering Ryles will wait for Storm job, Flanno's only real competition are a couple of rookies.If Flanno ends up back at the Dragons with 2,3,4 of our young juniors he will become my most hated coach of all time.
Foran wanted to extend at 300K per season but left for 400K a season at the gold coast. I'm not sure what shoey is on but I'd suggest its more than double the 250K Foz was on.It wasn't minimum but it was heavily subsidised through a third party. At a guess there is roughly 150k between what Schuey is on and what Foz is on. Watching them both play on the weekend I reckon we are better off without Foz.
I'm pretty sure the third party money ended last year and was around 100k/year. We were paying him 200k on the cap so it's no surprise we couldn't afford to match the Tits. Even $100k less would've broken the bank.Foran wanted to extend at 300K per season but left for 400K a season at the gold coast.

I believe the reason the Dragons are now making Griffin interview for his job,is that St.George don’t really want him and they know that there will be a couple of jobs up for grabs,like the Storm and want to get to Ryles first.Whether Ryles wants that job is another thingThe storm are after Ryles as their coach when Bellamy retires, so Flanagan is still in the picture.
