I don't think we should put much in the cap trouble statement from the Mole. Could just be a journo trying to sound like he knows what's going on and adding context to something.

He might have a contact within the club now seeing as they are a bit closer at the moment. One advantage when we were home in Auckland and his source Elliott was gone we could dismiss a lot of his stuff.

Jamayne Tounua-Brown moving to the Cowboys might be a good fit as Payten did get more out of him in 2020 than Brown did in 2021.

How the fark could we be in cap trouble?
Addin Fonua-Blake and Harris both around $800,000 then who?
Shaun Johnson and Walsh are our 2 strike players and they’re on less than a mil combined.
The only way that could be true is if we have a couple of big dollar players lined up.
Joey Manu November 1. We need to have 1 million available if he decides to say yes . I don't like waiting for a year for players. Too much can change, like we saw with Toby Rudolph.

A couple of players I wouldnt mind seeing upgraded to main contracts are the Fijian winger Ratuva and Preston Riki.
I know Riki is listed as a prop but he reminds me more of a rangy backrower with good hands and feet like Kikau.I don't know what his work rates like but hes young and got a real raw boned potential about him.
They'd both be cheap upgrades and I'd get him on board asap because they'll be some old codger coach talking to Dolphin Riki right at this moment.

Ratuva is in top 30

You guys are really big on Harris. I was a little critical of him this year. Mostly because I was so big on him.
Personally I think it might be time to move on..
My concern with Tohu Harris is he seems to be taking concussion shots a bit too regularly and im worried that will get worse as times go by, I hope im wrong as he is a great player and now we have a decent couple of props it would be nice to see him ranging wide rather than taking the tough hit ups he has been forced to do this year

Is something big brewing for November 1st? (Metcalf, Manu, Niukore) possibly???
it would be nice, but what if there isnt? Do we have enough players in the team to last the year, or is it finally time for NB to bring up all those magic juniors that everyone keeps talking about?
