Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

Based on Stuart's opinion and comments relating to Jack I can't see him ever agreeing to any arrangement where he goes to the Bulldogs. Stuart has been heavily involved in Jack's development. Pig - I think Panthers also had an agreement with the Roosters about raiding juniors, at least while Gus was...

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

Maybe I'm being gullible but I don't see the Raiders or Bulldogs poaching each other's players. Pay and Stuart have been mates for years, haven't they?

Re: Canterbury Bulldogs 2019

Aiden Sezer come on down. But seriously Foran needs to retire. I actually think he might make a decent coach. At one point he was arguably the best 5/8 in the game.

Re: Jack Wighton turns down Raiders option to go on open market for 2021

Like I said 600 posts back, I don't really care if he gets his million so long as it's not all on the cap. The club's got to find a way to keep the majority of this squad together and that isn't going to happen without some decent TPAs.

Aubusson and Takairangi can take a long walk off a short plank as well. Plodders Aubbuson would be #14 for our side every week. He fills a role and does it well.

Boyd and Gillets retirement along with Milf leaving should free up 4.5 million of the cap. Then they can start stockpiling players again.
