    So how much was Beale getting paid at Sharks? how do you know how much other clubs were offering him?

    For a centre/winger who wouldn't be in the top 15 in either position I would say we are paying him overs. Sharks only offered him one year so they are not as convinced of his talent as Coach Kearney is.

    It is all relative, Sharks aren't in desperate need of a centre that can defend and set up their winger. We are.

    Let's face it we have to pay overs

    Our team sux
    We are in a different country
    Our coach sux
    Our culture sux

    Who in their right mind would come over unless we make a better offer

    Auckland sux would have been easier to write, and more truthful

    I agree, but the Sharks have bought Dugan so a centre who can defend and set up a winger obviously isn't a priority for them. I'm not convinced that Beale is a great defender as he is being made out to be. He has made 92 tackles and missed 21 this season.

    On face value, that number seems high for me TBH. Would say his worth is more $250-$300, being an experienced young player with international experience... Add Warriors/NZ factor + Warriors shit form and not likely to win anything rates, I guess he would be on $350ish..

    Aysh would probably be on half that, and TBH I would prefer him at this stage.. Maybe he could go to the forwards, he's bigger than Bodene.

    Dugan would be the most expensive centre, on $800k + next season.
