    I just heard on KOFM that the Knights are after Damien Cook for 2020 and beyond .. Him and Klemmer would all but make this team a contender imo. Pretty sure that would mean bye to Levi though but suits me as Cook is better .
    What do we all think Cook apparently wants $4 mill for 5 yrs .

    Could be wrong about 2020 as they did say next year but seeing he is contracted for next season I thought they meant 2020 but we may be after him for 2019.

    Also at that price Cook is a steal.

    I'd be happy to chase him, can't deny he's a class hooker. The unknown is whether he can carry that form into next season and beyond.

    Said it in another thread he should be our No.1 target

    Would likely have to pay overs for him though, starting to rack up the amount of guys we have on 'overs' now

    With not many coming off the books in 2019 and upgrade for Fitz and Ponga I think we'd struggle to fit him in.

    Pretty much every decent name we signed came here because we paid more than they could get else where

    Ramien is probably the only guy on unders apart from Ponga who was originally on overs but is so good now it looks like unders

    We've been good with our cap because we're not paying mediocre guys overs which has allowed us to have the extra cash for these marquee guys, but don't be fooled they all came because the price was right

    That would be some spine and we wouldn't need a hooker on the bench. We can dream.

    That's a hell of a spine, playing behind a pack on the front foot they'd carve up just about any team :newcastle:

    Not really, 1gf win and a dark history for cheating the cap.

    Consistent top 4 team with multiple gf appearances and chances to win I'd call that extremely successful

    On a tangent I always found it funny how quickly the Storm tend to brush off their former stars when they leave.

    The Smith/Slater/Cronk trio used to include Inglis.

    Then the Storm announce statues of Smith and Slater will be erected, but leave out Cronk.

    Seems they're a a club that hold grudges

    I thought that was pretty poor myself, Cronk was a huge part of their success and they should have recognised that.
