Of the players signed for 22 only, i put my priority in Edwards.
Api - depends on how much others willing to pay.
Kenny - depends on what happens with Api. He’s probably willing to stay for unders at any case.
Kikau - if he wants 850+ let him walk to the Cowboys, Dragons, Dolphins etc, he’s not worth more than Martin and Sorensen.
Momo - happy to retain, but think he’ll get a stupid offer from another club.
Smith and Hopgood- retain, they look to be good in a couple of years
The rest - thanks, close the door on your way out
I thought Kikau already signed for unders?
Apparently the Tigers rejected Api for 2023, that’s a worry !
According to the SMH, Panthers have offered Momo the opportunity to look elsewhere for 2022.
As expected, other clubs are throwing big dollars his way - we got him on the cheap
I must say the thought of a Staines, Crichton, Tago, To’o backline has me excited, especially if Staines bulks up in the off season
Momirovski going to Roosters for 3 years.
not my ideal centre but he did a job and didn’t let anyone down.
Now leaves our club as a premiership winner and at least deserves my thanks and best wishes.
Also like to take the opportunity to thank Capewell, Naden, Burton for a job well done and my best wishes for the future.
Your combined efforts helped us get where we are today … number 1.
Some parallels with Paul Whatuira.
Just fascinating. So often a player is forced out of a club because of salary cap limitations, or a marquee player is suddenly available, and they turn up at the Easts Rorters. More proof that the most valuable person at a NRL club is the chief accountant.
what a shame but understand any player has to get the most he can in the window of opportunity they have.
Its more of a shame with the May matter not being resolved
Oh well He has a premiership ring and wish him well in his future, hope he remains injury free and earns plenty.
I might be wrong about this but havent all five departing players played at centre for the Panthers……who is coming through the junior ranks to replace them?
I think Tago will start in the centre’s, then move to second row as he matures. Not sure other than that.
I agree, defiantly Tago and Crichton in the centres.
And although Tago is nominally a second rower, I expect he will play more games at centre than Yeo did (mind you, Yeo was no slouch in the centres in his early seasons)
