Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Since everyone else is giving their 2 cents worth on Woods, I figure I'll join in. Woods is a good prop. He was playing too many minutes for far too long. He's good for 130m+ every game and 25-30 tackles. He can be a bit lazy in defence, but the whole team (bar a few) have been pretty lazy the past ...

I would've thought they'd give him a few weeks off after the WC.

Sounds keen tho & hope he has a great year.
Well he's had the best part of 2 weeks off, and he'd only be doing light work anyway.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I don't understand why people are getting their panties in a knot. Sure, he's a bog average player, and won't see any 1st grade, so what does it matter? We had around about $1m left on the cap, and now at most we have $900k. We also have to fill the roster by June 30. Worst case scenario he's gone b...

Re: Josh Aloiai

Aioli is one of my favourites. Always gives his best. He played 24 games in his debut year, half of which he had a broken hand. He's a bloody gun.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Fergo can't be shopped around. He doesn't even have a deal finalised yet. The Chooks would just say "we're not going to re-sign you" and he would have to go.

Brooks' speed is underrated.

He is probably the 4th fastest halfback in the entire comp behind Mbye, Johnson and Pearce

I think he will be our fastest player in 2018
He's faster than Pearce for sure. He'd be closer to Mbye and Johnson if he didn't have a dodgy hammy

Re: Did we miss out on Des

It was the Dragons. Even if we had the option of Des, who would you choose, Ivan who can start immediately and actively be involved in the recruiting process or Des who wouldn't be able to start until November 1st?

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I wouldn't at all be surprised if we don't sign anyone until next year. Why not leave 2 spots for any players that want a mid season release? Parra are leaving a spot open for Semi next year

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Hush, Hush We know of at least three NRL clubs keen on Greg Bird if he returns to Australia. Watch this space! Via foxsports. Doubt we would be one of the three... I could be wrong though... We already have ET, Eiso, McQueen, Rowdy, Aloiai, Marsters, Rochow fighting for spots in the second row/lock...

Re: How Russell Packer turned from inmate to university graduate

I'm still unsold on him. I hate what he did, and I don't think he should be playing NRL, but he's genuinely turned his life around for the better and taken his second chance. But if he didn't have the Dragons paying his legal bills he would have been deported. I mean if he wasn't a footballer and ju...

Re: Nofoaluma's improvement in 2017...

I thought his defensive reads inproved after a few weeks of Cleary coming in. Looked to me that it was all very similar with him still coming in and often stunting the play, but with minor tweaking from Cleary, which also helped Naqaima. I noticed that the edge players seemed to still be coming up ...

Re: who is the 2018 signing you are looking forward to watch.

TBH I've watched less than a dozen Matulino games so Im not the best judge on him. Woods is very consistent in getting the team down the right end of the field , producing offloads , plays long mins and good in defence . If Matulino is close or better I'll be more than stoked. I think that's the ri...

Re: L Brooks

People are way too harsh on him. When he was partnered with Anasta he played well, going on to claim the Dally M Rookie of the Year (albeit it in a somewhat weak field). 2015 he was partnered with an even less experienced half. Moses then decided that he also wanted to be a dominant half, despite Br...
