    would be massive, would add lots of grunt and size to along jwh, maybe to replace him long term. But where would we get the money from to sign him next year?

      Possibly money that would have gone to Cronk next year, I have no idea if he's staying or not but it's one avenue where the money could come from.

        Yeah surely we have no money and it's just his team doing a beat-up to inflate his asking price while he stays in Brisbane? Probably wants to play Origin before contract negotiations or something.

        That said, Cronk's leaving so if Keary and Lam work out as a partnership (for example) then we have $1 million for another marquee player. Having an extra enforcer would make Lam's job a lot easier if he's our long-term half.

          We deliberately didn't spend Napa's money + if Cronk was to leave there's close to 1.5 combined between the two.

            A million a season for a forward that plays 60 minutes and has already been hampered with hamstring problems. Good player no doubt. But whoever gets him will be paying overs. Similarly to the deal tlolo got.

              The club has come out and said we had no cap space left this year. I'm guessing napas money is gone.

                I can just see other fans whinge if this was true. "They get TPJ and they 'ONLY' release Cronk!"....

                  The usual media hype that the Roosters are buying such & such.
                  I would put my money on him joining Bennett at Souths.

                    They've front loaded contracts in the past as a tactic wouldn't surprise if they have done the same again.

                      Yeah I don't know how effective that is anymore. Isn't the nrl supposedly cracking down on front loaded and back ended contracts? I agree with their stance.

                        I would say we can't have both.

                          Would be great to get TPJ but Iím not holding my breath. Every time a big name player comes on the open market they are linked with us. Itís just speculation I reckon. It wouldnít be this year anyway cause he is contracted to the Broncos for this year. I too think he will bide his time until Origin. Whatís the hurry? If he keeps up the form he showed last game, he could name his price next contract. Just about every team in the NRL would be after him. I guess in saying that we are as good a chance as any. More than likely though I think he will stay with the Broncos. They have the money to keep him albeit possibly the loss of Glenn to help keep them under the cap.

                            Mmm.. got a feeling we will get him this time

                            unless the Broncos unload a few players. Which is also possible
                            Get out of the way, I'm next
