Hopefully officially announced soon.
Will be a good signing if true, and Warriors will always have to pay overs.
I agree but I’d be surprised if we only paid $300k. He sounds like a Sydney beach boy with strong family ties; I think it would have taken a fair bit to get him acrossI prefer us paying say $300k for a Rudolf, than spending $800k on a good, but older/mid tier forward right now, especially when looking at who is available for 2021.
He's earned his spot in NRL after a couple seasons of reserve grade and some hard knocks with injury. When seeing him play round 1 and 2, it's pretty clear the guy is NRL level, and arguably out performed Fifita in those games. We need to set the side up for the future, we know the club has been thinking the same, going after guys like Tino and David Fifita with a shit tonne more cash.
Rose tinted glasses, but with young guys like Katoa and Rudolf in the squad, the forward pack future is looking a little brighter.

The figures have been looked into before. $9.6m divided by 30 players is an average of $330k each. When you have the top 4-5 players taking $600-1m each the average for the remaining 24 players is down to around $230k each. While a lot of lower guys will be minimum wage there will be a lot of experienced first grade players under $300k.333k a year is pretty cheap for any player thay you are putting in your starting line up...
Says he weighed 150kg when he arrived at keebra park on Wikipedia. The fact you know him personally is probably more accurate. Stuff news saying Toby Rudolph signing is about to be announced, really happy with the two signings for next year.I saw him at an ARL day not long before he left for Keebra and he was saying that was about 130kgs, he was big but he wasn't obese. He'd be about 6'1 so if he'd got to 150kgs he would've been wearing fat boy pants and I'm pretty sure Keebra wouldn't have taken him. He's big boned so he can carry 120kgs no problem. If you wanted longer minutes out of him, you'd need to get him down to 110 to 115 but then you'd lose a bit of impact I reckon. He had very good speed for a big kid and it set him apart from the rest. Oats moved him up a grade and he didn't set the world on fire I heard so he dropped back down. Might've just been that he wanted to play with his mates while he could, nothing wrong with that. More talented than determined at that time maybe. Seems to be determined playing for Tonga now.
Fuck if I know. I keep an eye on NRL universe, they tend to be not far off the mark. Reddit is the one on the right at the top on my tablet is all I know. Just need it to show (OFFICIAL) and it's a done deal.What does that mean? Isn’t that just the stuff article?
Reddit/NRL Universe/ZeroTackle are mostly just news aggregators. You are not likely to get any official news/scoops on there before a news website.Fuck if I know.
