1. Snake ($600,000) - I'm not in favour of paying him the reported amount but we need him to secure Glenn. 2. Williams - released - with Cherry, Foran, Stewart and Lyon in the backline we can only afford budget wingers. Estmated salary $180,000; New winger $80,000 = SAVED $100,000. 5. Oldfield - signs on for 80kish or leaves to be replaced by another new, untried and cheap winger. 4. Lyon - Stays. 3. - Matai - released - replace with Whare. Estimated salary $250,000. Whare already included in cap. New, untried and cheap centre $80,000 = SAVED $170,000. 6. Foran - Stays. 7. Cherry - Stays. Backline losses: Williams, Matai. Savings $270,000. 13. Stewart - stays. 11. Watmough - Stays. 12. T-Rex - Released. I can see Tony destroying Queensland this year and his asking price will balloon out to $500,000+ a year. Cannot see how we can afford that. Hate to see him go. I'll assume we can keep him... 8. Kite - Stays because he has a contract and why would he leave. 10. King - As above. 9. Ballin - If T-Rex stays then he goes. Estimated salary = $300,000. Replaced by Buhrer who is already included in the cap. New, untried but cheap hooker = $80,000. SAVINGS = $220,000 Also released: Joe - Love him but he is getting on. Estimated Salary $150,000. Replaced by a youngster on $80,000. SAVINGS = $70,000. Darcy - $270,000? No. Released. Forward loses - Ballin, Joe (If a T-Rex deal is done). Savings = $290,000 Total savings $560,000. In following years we release King, Kite and Jamie and replace them with cheap and untried youngsters. Thoughts?
