    Basically base price too.

    He is a future star. Big frame with some quick feet. Think he had the most running metres or TB's or something last year or the year before in QCup. If this is true it sucks for the Storm because he will be a gun.

    Also heard that a few Broncos were at the pub having some drinks (Matt Lodge was not drinking) and Bird and Lodge got into some fistycuffs. The other Broncos players had to break it up.

    Yeah Tino rules. I've watched him a few times for Easts in the last couple of years, he looks the goods.

    He was originally an edge forward so maybe he plays edge for Titans.. that said maybe he has filled out too much now.

    Bird must of been pissed if he thought he could match it with Lodge lol.

    The couple games he played for Storm last year he was pretty good. A part of all the emerging rep squads. Who are Titans edge forwards? Hipgrave, Proctor, Cartwright??? Shouldn't be too hard to squeeze one of them out.

    Seems the Tino deal is for 2021 and beyond, so still at Storm next year (at this stage..)

    Not a fan of the Tino deal, happy to be wrong but signings like this are why bad teams stay bad.

    It is a lot harder to impact the game as a young forward than a young outside back. Most young forwards take 3-4 years of first grade before they become consistent first graders. Sure there are some very special players that are exceptions (Sam Burgess, Payne Haas being the most recent example) As an exercise let's look at this years origin teams and how many years into their career they made their rep debut

    Arrow - First grade debut 2016, rep debut 2018
    Papalii - First grade debut 2011, rep debut 2013
    Kaufusi - First grade debut 2015, rep debut 2017
    Gillett - First grade debut 2010, rep debut 2012
    McGuire - First grade debut 2009, rep debut 2015
    Ofahengaue - First grade debut 2015, rep debut 2019
    Napa - First grade debut 2013, rep debut 2017
    D.Fifita - First grade debut 2018, rep debut 2019

    Klemmer - First grade debut 2013, rep debut 2014
    Vaughan - First grade debut 2013, rep debut 2018
    Cordner - First grade debut 2011, rep debut 2013
    Frizell - First grade debut 2011, rep debut 2016
    Trbojevic - First grade debut 2013, rep debut 2016
    Haas - First grade debut 2018, rep debut 2019
    Murray - First grade debut 2017, rep debut 2019
    Crichton - First grade debut 2016, rep debut 2018

    A few of the other leading forwards in the game had similar paths
    Taumalolo - First grade debut 2010, rep debut 2014
    A.Fifita - First grade debut 2010, rep debut 2013
    Bateman - First grade debut 2011, rep debut 2015
    Taupau - First grade debut 2010, rep debut 2014

    TL;DR
    It takes a long time for forwards to get up to representative standard. This is a bad signing by the Titans and a strong reason that bad clubs stay bad

    To put on the bulk and take the consistant impact - its a known fact forwards particularly props mature later. A few exceptions seem to have poked their head up lately but they havent been provved over longer terms. Don't sign a marquee  forward  till he's 24-28

    It's a better signing than some of their recent signings that's for sure. They're going to have to take a risk on an unknown quantity because they can't get away with player swaps because no-one will want their deadwood e.g. Shannon Boyd and Leilani Latu who were supposedly on 600k and 500k and Latu has barely even played.

    If you look through the contract lists for 2020 there isn't that many players off contract after 2020 that would be willing as player & club to move as they're already established key members of the team. One that stands out is Nat Butcher who is sort of a fringe 17 player for Roosters who would thrive with a consistent starting spot but how likely is it that Roosters are willing to let him go when they know he'll likely be a future star

    Bold prediction but I don't think Titans are going to get the spoon in 2020

    I think the Titans will improve but the coach has a lot of work to do there to get rid of the deadwood (or get something useful out of them).

    Cleary is a lock for me, hard to ignore McInnes as when Issac comes on McInnes will move to lock, I’d expect him to make some more tackle busts and offloads.

    Ryan James is an interesting one for me, could be worth the gamble. I feel he scores better in the middle though rather than on an edge.

    I’ll be avoiding Cook at this stage I think as we’ve lost 5 forwards and haven’t bought one, Cookie doesn’t score as well when the pack isn’t rolling forwards.

    Isaako and Lomax looking like very good value!

    Arrow will be at Souths I reckon, just a matter of whether it’s for 20 or 21 now, lots of Souths fans on different forums are very confident Arrow is locked up.

    Is there enough interest here for a thread? I'm addicted at the moment. In my second year, have made a reasonably solid start. Put the balls on the line in round 2 with C on Lynn, and it paid off.

    Yeah it's enjoyable to play. I like the tactics re double game rounds/etc. And rounds are over quickly. Plus you can't accumulate trades round to round, so trade rage is encouraged

    Anyway, that's me done for the year. Enjoy your holidays, fellas!
