I think we'd be giving Simonsson and Oldfield the spot if Rapana went. Get another backup winger and the cap moves elsewhere. Likely for someone to partner Papalii.
Yep - I’m with you here Zim. Could use another quality front rower or a new 7. Not smart locking up big dollars in a winger.
I think you've misread me there. I want Rapana to stay. That's my first choice. I expect us to give him a competitive offer. Not 700k. That's just silly and paying that for a winger is not where any team should be putting their cap. I also expect him to be more motivated to stay here.
If Rapana does move on then we look at plan B and moving the cap space elsewhere in the team.
Yep - I’m on the same page. The guy is great and it would be a great result to keep him but the price has to be right. It head over heart stuff. Make a reasonable offer and be prepared to let him go if he’s asking the sort of money that should otherwise be reserved for spine players, an elite forward, or apparently Cory Oates?
Haha, if Oates does somehow land that 700k deal I'd expect it to be a bottom 4 team with a bad back 5, desperate to make a signing.

Yeah that's 100% a Titans deal.

They did say Sydney club though.

Chalk me up as on the same page as Mike 'Billy' Walker... make a fair and decent market offer, in line with the Fergo deal, and be prepared to let him walk if he gets better
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers & Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

Anyway, 700k for Corey Oates is crazy money. Anyone who wants to pay it deserves the cap pain to follow. I agree I think it is just a manager gee up.

It puts it in perspective that Rapana for 2 years at 500k should be the ceiling. Or 3rd year in clubs favour at something like 500, 500, 350 (give or take 50k on the first 2 years). That idea posted earlier gets my vote.

He will attract offers. He is a man you could use to help build a club culture & be a backline leader. Some clubs could see him as a FB option. Wouldn't surprise me if someone threw something big at him but he does seem very happy in his footy here.

If he wanted to cash in near the end of his career I imagine he'd attract some good union offers from Europe/Japan as they don't mind a league winger & Jordy actually has more of the union skill set required of a winger (that 40/20!) & understands the game mores than plenty of others who have gone over.
