Glad we're doing a medical on him, so we don't have another Orford scenario

Really happy about this.

Ripper of a player, and a leader too.

Was also 2nd in the voting for Clive Churchill medal last year for his forgetting the Welcome to Country.

Exactly. You'd sign him again, I reckon.

If either James or CHN can set the attitude standard, in the way Bateman does, the Window just turned into a door
God I hope so. We're just missing one big back five name

@200k I don't think this a gamble at all. If he's willing to come here for less money, that's a fair indication of attitude. For what we're paying him, it won't be a big deal to have kicking around in reserve grade if he's not up to snuff.

What if it is $400,000 a season? The report is ambiguous.

For $200k/year I think we’d be crazy not to make the signing; low risk with high upside. If it’s $400k/year, the gamble becomes more like a flip of the coin, but still a bet that‘s worth making IMO.

C'mon guys, its 400k per year. He would of been on double that at the titans... its probably at the upper end of what you want to pay because of his injuries but if we can keep him fit it would a be a tremendous signing

He must really want to be here, if he’s on half of what he was on at the titans and not wanting to go to the storm n roosters. Must be the culture at the club

Agreed. 200k per year isn't what you pay a player of this calibre, a club captain, who had two other sides chasing him. Even if the Titans just refused to make him an offer he wouldn't play for just above minimum wage.

DT just listed him at 750k. So if we can keep him on the park at 400k is a bargain. Worth the risk

I'm assuming it's $400k per season. At $200k there's no way Titans let him go.

It should be. He’s the most valuable player in the backline at the moment.

Sounds like it could be a bargain deal for us.

Ryan James should know - apparently he is a great bargain hunter himself. Personally I like Facebook Marketplace but he seems to prefer Gumtree.

I think I didn't make myself clear, my understanding was it was 400k per season.

Cartwright is reportedly back in Sydney and asking Titans for a release on personal grounds.

Titans should accept it depending on money. He should have taken Peachey with him.

Advice from Ryan James on how to get a bargain on Gumtree.



Can someone tell me what is a “game ready”?

Apparently a “game ready” is an injury recovery device.

https://gameready.com/

Seems ever since he did that video he has been injured. Perhaps $500 for a $5000 device was really “too good to be true”.

(Shows how much I know - I assumed a “game ready” was some sort of gaming computer)
