Wonder if clubs sometimes deliberately pick duds like this bloke with late picks just to ensure thy keep up with compulsory list changes and make sure they'll have room down the track? :shh

I doubt that club a would be prepared to throw $200k/$300k away for no good reason. That's the sort of money a draftee would be on in total, for their 1st couple of years.

They're forced to pay 95% of the TPP so having a cheap bloke on the list also helps to pay the bigger contracts.

They're forced to pay that money regardless of who's in the spot.

If he doesn’t then we can keep turning the list over
“I find it nearly impossible to make those judgments, but he is certainly up there with the really important ones, he is certainly up there with the Francis Bourkes and the Royce Harts and the Kevin Bartlett and the Kevin Sheedys, there is no doubt about that,” Balme said.

What's the bet he's our sub, comes on with 5-10min to go in the 3rd quarter and we are already 60 points down. Get's dumped in a forward pocket and the ball goes nowhere near him.

Nah it'll be alright because that just means Sir Runsalot will be starting the match which should keep us in it........... :shh
