Lane looked like a giraffe in headlights, doesn't bother me he's going.

Some smart coach will put Lane in the front row, then give him a couple of seasons and he'll be playing Origin...the guys still a pup.

Kid needs about 20kg's more meat on him.
He is already 110kg. Looked a lil cumbersome and didnt seem to know what to do when he got his chance. Seemed so out of his depth compared to his game Vs Storm for the Dogs where he was absolutely awesome. Wish the kid the best, not easy to leave all the comforts of home and move country within a few days of notice. Obviously he would have been keen on going back to Sydney so cannot hate him for that. Give it a few years and i reckon he will develop into a really good player. Great prototype for a second rower.

I just can't believe RFM - a guy with feet for hands and didn't really know how to tackle - was on $200/250K

Probably not weight, but strength...he's still very young, and very big, but once he learns to control that massive frame he's going to be a handful...James Tamou was the same when he was young, all arms and legs, lazy, cumbersome looking, then after a few years bam, it all clicked.

Source?

Is there even anyone on minimum contract at the club besides Gubb?

It was a post by Jay M i swear it was in this thread but it may have been moved. He said Lane was (probably) on $200-250K, and because it was a straight swap, RFM would've been on the same.

I hope it's not true anyway. If the club are forking out 200k+ for local players like him, well that's pretty messed up.

yeah I said it tajhay - read it somewhere beginning of this year/last year - that RFM was on $200-$250k (still less than Lousi by all accounts). And that figuring a swap for Lane - I thought value must have been close to equal.

Wright's on minimum. Not sure how many others are.

I guess when you take into account Lousi's salary, it makes RFM's not seem so excessive.

Jeez this club has made cock ups in the signing/re-signing department though.

If RFM was on that much he as a fringe first grader it says a lot about the way we have used our cap. Signing on potential like usual, yes the cap has gone up a lot but still quite a lot for a rookie.

Also says a lot about the club with how keen he seemed to be to get out and head to another club and advance his career.

With Lane heading off we definitely got the bum deal of that trade.

There were reports of Lane falling out with Hasler, maybe over training. He could be a lot more after a good pre-season or two. Not that we really have the time.

Hopefully from the Warriors point of view it is a case of not signing him to keep the little cap space we have for someone we will use in first grade.

I think Lane has the tools to be a first grader. I just don't think he understands the use of his size yet, and more importantly, hasn't filled out yet. In 3-4 years he could be a complete beast.

The guy I think of with Lane is the All Black lock Brodie Retallick. He is one of the best in the world now but when he was a junior apparently he was just the same sort of ungainly giraffe. Lane was an outstanding under 20s player who would have felt the transition to the real world quite a shock. I hope he doesn't grow into a monster and come back and bite us on the bum.

Salaries don't have to match if either team has room in the cap, if we had space under the cap then we could take back a larger contract. I don't believe RFM was on anything close to $250,000.

Just watching the Rabbitohs v Manly replay and Shaun Lane looks to have leaned out quite a bit. Massive frame on him...
