Pretty sure last year POS or someone from the club said Staggs had no interest in moving to New Zealand, which makes you think the club had already made inquiries to his management.

messaged POS on insta and he said he would only chase hughes if kodi was to decline his player option, He also said that kotoni staggs doesn't want to come to NZ so stop dreaming about him coming

in all honnest we dont have anything near the price stags is on or wants
I know he had a good season and all last year, but he’s recovering from a pretty serious injury (ruptured ACL I believe?)

i don’t think he’s worth the asking price as it’s based on one outstanding season for a team that finished with the spoon.

I’d rather back our young guns and save $700k

His attack is worth $400k and his defence is worth $50k

just extend Peta Hiku on $250k

Agree and a shortened season at that.

The dollar value attached to young players by managers these days is spinning out of control. Good luck to V’landys trying to pull these agents into line.

Asking 700k under a newly reduced salary cap is about 200k over for a young Center learning the ropes that managed to hit a small patch of form.

Seems like every young kid these days is the next superstar.

His d was horrible last year but a few attacking plays have over shadowed it.
Him and David Fafita were the worst 2nd row centre d combo in the comp last year.
Blueys dream combo though.
In the draw with Brisbane in 2019, Staggs spent all night standing back, retreating in defence and letting Nikorima, CHT and Blair run at him. It helped over shadow alot of their flaws!

Id rather see first how KN and CHT will go this season. Im hearing alot about cheese talking shit about the warriors on his livestream. Saying "F@ck the warriors" and "Hughes will ruin his career there". Cheese can you plz ask RTS (2018 DALLY M) and tohu harris (2020 2nd ROWER OF THE YEAR) how their careers are going?

Wonder if he thought hitting the market, the Warriors would come chasing? Sounds like he’s buying into the hype around him a bit much. Hope to see him go to a team and play at hooker at least, better for the Kiwis team.

He was on 9 news last night a bit pissy about Cam Smith not letting them know what’s going on, mentioned he and Harry Grant were happy to share the role but if Smith stated he would have to put on more muscle and play lock which wasn’t ideal for him as it was hampering his chances to play hooker “for another club and his country”. 9 also mentioned other ‘young stars’ were likely to leave if Smith stayed

Will Cheese's career end up being ruined because of a cranial-anal inversion? He comes across as the kind of player not good for a team's culture. He might be worth signing as a player, but you wouldn't want him near a Leader's Group and would absolutely not consider him as Vice-Captain or Captain.
