Now to sign Martin for another 4 years


Niwhai Puru ⮕ Cronulla Sharks (2024)

Lots of talk in the media that Crighton is set to sign with dogs for season ‘24.

No great surprise if true on a number of fronts, he has reportedly always been chasing the dollar and fullback, and we also have a salary cap to manage.

There are a few good choices coming through to replace him, not to mention who we may pick up cheap.

Stephen Crichton ⮕ Canterbury Bulldogs (2028)*

* Starting Season 2024

Liam Martin ⮕ Signed to 2024

No surprise, but welcome all the same.

Apparently he agreed to terms with the club back in May last year, they were just waiting for clarification of the salary cap for this year apparently.

Good to see a handshake still means something.

Now Crighton is off the books from next year, there is room for the club to extend him into a long term deal.

As long as we lock up JFH (which we have), Leota (which we should), Yeo (which we must) Martin (who we will), Cleary (who we have) and Edwards (who we should) into long term contracts, the rest of the team who form around them will lead us to success.

And the above is no disrespect to the others in the team, I’m sure all panther fans support the efforts you have put in over the last 3 years to bring home our 2 premierships.

Spencer Leniu ⮕ Sydney Roosters (2024)*

* Starting Season 2024

I see the “expert” journos have us way over the cap this year :roll_eyes:


I think this would be more accurate (and I don’t have any inside knowledge):

Edwards $700K
Turuva $180K
Chricton $650K
Tago $400K
To’o $600K
Luai $720k
Cleary $1.2M
JFH $800K
Kenny $350K
Leota $550K
Martin $500K
Garner $250K
Yeo $850K
Luke $120K
Leniu $400K
Sorensen $300K
Salmon $180k

May $350K
Others $1.8M


Might still be way off on a couple too.

The bargain there is Moses if 550 is real!

Dyl you could argue is probs worth 800 also

I believe most of these values are over estimates, in attempt to encourage our top 17 to test their value on the market and leave Penrith.

A contemptuous attempt to destabilize our team.

Spencer chasing the money - well as much as he has showed promise, never really kicked on. I see much more promise in Lindsay Smith

Shame about losing another and how the others appear to be simply picking us off one by one…doesnt say much about loyalty does it?

although you can’t blame them from chasing megabucks.
wonder who will be next?

Playing the “loyalty” card is a low blow. I don’t blame Leniu at all. He’s played in the last 2 Grand Final winning teams, played for Samoa in the World Cup, and is stuck behind Fish & Leota, so he currently plays about 20 mins a game. He’s 22 & nowhere near his peak, why wouldn’t he take a higher offer from a likely premiership contender like the Roosters?

Having said that, I’m gutted we’re losing him. I’ve said how good I think he is on this forum for a couple of years.

Good luck to Leniu. I hope he gives us his best this year, I’m sure he will. And hope our production line of young talent continues to flourish.
