Dufty just recently re-signed with the dragons for a couple of years. Jai Field is unproven at NRL level.The Dragons have two young guys in Dufty and Field off contract this year, either could be a good target. It's not really important, my point is that Gutherson is not worth what he is asking in my opinion.
I would rather we bought nobody than saddle the club with a fat contract for a guy who has a serious injury history and is good but not great.
Gutherson is on the fringes of origin selection. I’d rather pay 700-800K for a proven talent at fullback in Gutho, than 1 million for an unproven talent at fullback in Holmes. The club has clearly identified fullback as a current deficiency within our squad - it’s why we put aside 1 million a season to sign one. Would hate for us to be stuck with somebody like TMM for the next 18 months at the back while we wait for somebody else to come off contract to approach.
