    WarriorBall 1st Grade Fringe



    Hoffman $600k
    Lilyman $450k
    Matulino $500k
    Thompson $350k
    Foran $600k
    Vatuvei $600k
    Lolohea $300k

    Confirmed Signing
    Harris $600k
    Pulu $250k
    Beale $380k
    Hiku $250k

    Probable Signings
    Blair $650k
    Green $500k


    My guess is between $700k - $800k. but bare in mind their are other variables like the new salary cap and player upgrades, anyone feel free to correct these player figures if you think you know.

    Don't forget the upgrades on a few players contracts from previous $$$
    SJ, Roache, Hingano, Lino, Gavet, Fus, CNK etc

    Yep, I think we'll still be clear a decent amount when we take into the salary cap has gone up to $9.4 million.

    You got a cap increase that will cover some of the upgrades. Don't expect the fringe guys like Hingano, Lino, Roache and CNK to have won big increases

    It's a significant increase we're talking about too, yes there will be ratchet clauses for certain players but we're talking an increase from 2017-18 of around $2.4 million but it's a very murky area and difficult to estimate with any certainty.

    Good question. I've been trying to put our squad together to see how many spots we have left but can't seem to do it.

    The 'Football Profiles' page on the Warriors website has 29 players under the 'Telstra Premiership' tab (which at first I assumed was the first grade squad), however it's still missing a few players that we've already signed (Blair, Hiku, Beale and Harris). This tells me that there must be second tier players and/or development players on the list as well.

    Figuring out who has what kind of contract is beyond me.

    I was previously of the belief that we still had spots left for two forwards, thereby filling the vacancies left by Sipley and Thompson. Thouogh I've since stopped counting as that was an eternity ago and i got sick of waiting around for recruitment news. So anyone's guess is as good as mine.

    Off the top of my head it went something like this...
    Hoffman > Harris
    Gubb > Pulu
    Lillyman > Paasi
    Matulino > Blair
    Ogden > Love-Henry
    Sipley >
    Thompson >

    Someone can correct me if I've made a mistake I honestly don't remember too well.

    To answer your other questions:

    I don't think it's too late. In fact I think holding out is a good way to go, there are often mid-season or last minute transfers which occur due to cap restrictions.

    Given there are a few clubs 'supposedly' over the cap (dogs, raiders) I think we can assume this to be the case. There was talk previously in the year that there'd be a fire-sale of players being released once the cap was finalized. This hasn't really occurred but might still be on the cards.

    And yes I think we do have the cap. So far we've probably spent as much money (maybe a tiny bit more) on our new players as was made available by our departing players. With the increase in salary cap I think we've still got a bit of space to move.

    Pat Sipley/ Chris Satae has effectively replaced Tof, Joe Vuna has been upgraded to NRL squad.

    Oh nice. So Sipley and Satae are on first-grade contracts now or was Tof on a second tier?

    Vuna's an interesting one, thought for sure he'd be one of our development players. The club must think he's close to FG. It'll be interesting to see how he goes in the trials, haven't seen too much of him.

    I guess that's our FG squad settled then. Turns out we've been waiting around for nothing.

    The BatmanThe Batman Did you only just find out about these promotions recently mate?
