I suppose any clubs cap is tight if an offer is just too large.
It’s poor list management say if you have plenty of players who can play Kelly’s role to pay him overs.
He’s not their marquee player though. Many gws fans are oblivious, he’s just another midfielder. They would more notice if Cameron, Mumford or Ward walked.(prob Toby Greene as well).
So they will prob let him leave for a massive contract even if they can match.
A ‘Buddy’ opportunity comes up for GWS and they will grab it with two hands.
I think for example WC could have Kelly tomorrow if they sent Natanui to the Giants. And gws would have a fire sale to make room for him.
