Solid contribution at both ends from Newbill. Could've been a team MVP on at least two other teams this season but was part of a very strong import trio for Cairns.

Think one of either Melb/Sydney would chase Newbill perfect 3rd import.

Newbill is far from a third import. He's first class

He excels as a second or third option. That's how he is able to play his game.

Good result, Cairns should try resigning him and Machado right now.

Cairns offered him (allegedly) the largest contract they've offered anybody in their history. That makes it probably half as much as United are paying Trimble this season. ;)
