So it is going to have to grow by a good bit more than 5% to be any higher than $65m.

The cap wont get close to $70m until 2016/17 ($69.5m) with the assumption of 5% growth.
Don't forget that the CBA still includes a PA 5% escalator clause. Which I can't see them not using every year (like previously).
