Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

We already have a gun fullback. How many do we need? Not yet we don't. We have a fullback that has potential. He could turn out to be a gun in the future but he's not there yet. Think your underestimating Tui, Avo. He is closer to a gun FB than anyone else we have or likely to get in the near futur...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Realistically, what areas do you think we need to strengthen? I would say fullback, only because Lolohea is fairly unproven in that position, and after him I can't see many really good options. And I think we're one prop short at this point, even with the re-signing of Grant. Going to be really int...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Well if he is guaranteed to be leaving, and there are 3 clubs who want him and we are one of those 3 clubs our chances are: 1/3 = 33.33% That would assume each club has an equal chance of signing him. There is no way in the world we are competing with clubs like Manly. We have plenty of money to sp...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Looks like Moylan is off to the Sea Eagles.... I'm glad we wont be signing him as we have a spine of Tui, Reynolds, Brooks, and Liddle...there is no room for Moylan...if we hadn't signed Reynolds, then yes, but to waste $700k+ for Moylan given the money we outlayed for Reynolds....no thanks...I thi...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Is it? You don't think Gus will move heaven and earth if Moylan leaves? He'll do that regardless of where Moylan goes, but we'll have cap space to make things interesting. If Moylan goes anywhere (which is looking likely) I hope it's us. There will be a queue of clubs lining up to sign N Cleary . M...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Based on our recruitment I would agree that's our spine. But I don't think it's set in stone. I don't think any player should be guaranteed any position, especially not at a club that hasn't played finals in many many years. So if a player like Moylan comes along you pick up and re-arrange your spi...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

We don't need to move on anyone. Unlike Manly we have enough cap room. When you need to buy new tyres for your car, do you buy 8? Just because you have the money? No, because it is pointless. Tui was bought as a fullback but was given time at #6 in first grade this year to get him fit. No-one can a...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

How can you compare tyres to rugby league players. Tyres are all the same which is why you buy 4, not 8. Players have different skills and abilities. You want to have the best players possible. As for Tui, who cares. Players have shown very little loyalty to the fans and the club in the past, time ...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Haven't you seen Aloiai? Too bad he's only one player. Marsters could be anything. The point is, our back row is weaker than our spine. We have an Origin player at 6, a 1 who could be anything and a 9 who could be anything. An ex origin player. He's nowhere near that standard anymore.

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Sweet, so by your logic if JT, Cronk, Slater, Munster and Morgan all became available we should not approach them because we've already signed some players? Manly has a spine that is eons better than ours and they're still looking to try and sign him. Your way of thinking is a good strategy if you ...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Doesn't seem like you read what he was saying. Unfortunately for the brigade who want him here, we've already spent money and roster spots on the spine, including depth. Moylan might seem great because he appears to better than what we have, but he doesn't fill a position we need. If he was a back ...
