+ NRL Salary Cap has increased $200k from 6.8M in 2016, to 7M in 2017. + Players in the top 25 have a MIN Salary of $80k, so I have done estimates below: We have lost: + Jamie Lyon : $500k + Josh Starling : $125k + Tom Symonds: $175k + Feleti Mateo: $200k + Tim Moltzen: $80k + Luke Burgess: $90k + Liam Knight: $80k + Siosaia Vave: $100k + Fabian Goodall: $80k + Nathan Green: $80k + Blake Leary: $80k + Isaac John: $80k + Jayden Hodges: 90k TOTAL: 1.760 M (and I think I've been VERY conservative) Then a heap of 2nd tier guys probably not included in main cap. There are probably another $200k odd not included that should be. We have signed (apparently): + Cameron Cullen: $80k + Shaun Lane: $100k + Blake Green: $350k + Mathew Wright: $120k + Frank Winterstein: $100k + Akuila Uate: $250k + Willis Meehan: $80k TOTAL 1.080 M (and I think I've been quite garrish) Players we have re-signed: + Brayden Wiliame: NIL increase + Addin Fanua-Blake: 100k increase Players that NEED to be re-signed: + Jorge Taufua: 50k increase That leaves $530k (and I appreciate it's probably much, much more than that given the salaries I said the players we are letting go are on.) Add the $200k cap increase, and that's $730k available WORST CASE. Probably more like $1.030 M available cash, so yes, we had room for Gillett. Also, NO, we do NOT need to release Buhrer as that BS article states.
