I’d rather see Connelly Lemulu In the centres with Sam Mclntyre on the bench
Yep, McIntyre has been rather underwhelming so far this year. Not sure if he's made a single line break and looks more like a prop /back row.

With Lemuelu off contract let's see what he can do

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I'd hazard a guess that some names we'll be talking to would include Daniel Tupou, Ryan Matterson and Taupau

We really really really need some props. We've lost Grant, Sue and Felise and have not signed any replacements
We've signed Clark and Mikaele. Twal needs more minutes too

Are the three of them signed for next year?
Yes

All development players are on 2 year contracts
But Lemuelu was never announced as a development player. Unless he picked it up when Gibbs left

Re: Thomas Mikaele/ Dylan Smith

I'd have more confidence in Mikaele, Smith and Lemuelu than the likes of Aloiai, MWZ and Naiqama.

All top prospects and with a full off season could be anything. I expect Mikaele to be in our 17 come round one 2019

Re: ISP Team Announcement: Round 22

He's gotten bigger but surprised to see Connelly in the centres I'm really happy for the young fella. Hope he stands up. Likewise. Seen him play and he's quite the talent. Based his game on Benji. Right on... Showed potential in the halves behind a struggling pack. He's gotten bigger and he's got d...

So we signed Segeyaro (spelling)
Guess Ivan has no faith in Liddle.
Cant blame him the kid is fragile
No, we haven't signed anyone other than Mbye and Clark for next year.

Re: Thomas Mikaele?

Liolevave had a poor attitude. He thought he was a rock star before he'd even made it. TMM did make him look a star too. He wasn't up for putting in the hard work required, that's why he faded into obscurity and is probably a brickie or bouncer somewhere now. Paseka is very tall and lean. Perhaps pr...

Re: Farah floats idea of walking off into sunset with Benji

Said it before, will say it again, Liddle is not robust enough for first grade, the young kid from Sharks has been playing big minutes since day one imo - (with due respect) I think you are absolutely and totally incorrect. Seconded. just because someone suffered a couple of injuries (all close tog...

I think we'd be a good chance at Matterson and Tupou, not based on anything other than their squad for next year

Re: Help Needed

There are lots of sports that do this. Almost every code in the US does. No one sees it as an invasion, it's standard. But Aussies are a very precious, conservative bunch. At the very least, if the info doesn't become available to the entire public it should be available to select stakeholders who c...

Re: Sue to dogs

If that's what he was on then good riddance. An incredible under achiever and awful value for money. No wonder he wanted to stay. Anyone in management that thought an average bench prop was worth anything near that much should be sacked. Highly incompetent. But exciting to be gaining much more cap s...

Re: Sue to dogs

If he was on anything near 500k that would be a calamity! He's worth no more than 250-300k at a max. Most of his career he's be concussed, making 60m a game, giving away a ridiclous amount of penalties, knock ons or just soft defense up the middle. He hasn't improved at all int he last 5 years so sh...

Re: Farah floats idea of walking off into sunset with Benji

If we sign Nathan for 2018 both will go. If we dont sign Nathan one or both will stay. Simple maths Yep .... was just going down the same train of thought. Ahh the earliest we can bring Nathan on the bus is 2020....he is still with Penriff in 2019 Why on earth would you think a contract makes any d...

What's this I hear about Taupau popping into Concord Oval a few days ago? Seems odd. Catching up with old mates?

Re: Farah floats idea of walking off into sunset with Benji

Seemingly neither wants to play ISP so in that case both need to retire this year. They could both re-sign on small backup contracts, play ISP and fill in where necessary in ISP but i don't think that's what they want to do. And fair enough that's their call, but if they're our first choice 5/8 and ...

Nah, the team should give up and think they have no chance. They play much better that way! When they think they have a chance then they go in their scared little shells...
