Once the Whiteman deal is announced, I suspect a bit of resentment may start to build towards the the other 3 wantaways. Only just over a couple of weeks of the window to go and it strikes me that very few clubs have money to throw about. With Browne’s future now secure, a bit of pressure now builds on the others.
If nothing happens about contracts with those 3 their commitment to the club and to games will be called into question as the season goes on.
They certainly won’t want to get long term injured when they haven’t got another contract running on.
And as you say the fans ( not that we will be there to comment) will not accept anything less than 100% effort.
