Got a hot rumour from a source inside the club, or just something you heard down the pub? Then what are you waiting for, post it on The Rumour Mill.

Makes sense from a personal finance point of view, but why wouldn't we want to strengthen the team?
adding numbers isnt strengthening always, look at Clarke
I didn't say adding numbers. I said strengthening.

Who? I was asking why someone thought we should save the money in general and not make any addtions to the squad, nothing about a specific player.

Why would Greenwood want to stay to be played out of position or be a sub/squad player at second row?

Mike/Pedro - You are both arguing about two separate things.

- Mike is talking from a general point of view
- Pedro is talking about this Luke Page rumour who is a 30 year old with only 1 NRL appearance
Bomhead - "Lockers to prop."

No it was a reply to someone who just said we should save the money and not spend it now. They weren't talking about a specific player.

I reckon if someone is available who strengthens the squad we go for it, no point in saving salary cap, you gain nothing.
