Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

So far the rumours are Coen Hess, James Fisher Harris, Manu Mau, Jack Wighton Musgrove and Shaun Johnson. It sounds like guessing to me on who’s off contract in 2019. If we get rid of Mcqueen and ET we will have 4 spots up for grabs. Lock in Hess, Fisher Harris, Wighton, Mau for me. And while we are...

Re: Luke Brooks

I sincerely hope that when Luke agrees to a new contract he is made Vice/Caption for 2019 with the promise that he is caption from 2020 onwards. Chris Lawrence deserves to be caption for 2019. No. You dont offer the (c) as incentive to retention. IF...if he is deemed suitable for a leadership role ...

Re: Luke Brooks

The Pom already put it out there he has agreed. Not always spot on but probably the best strike rate on here. I’ll stick with the Poms info.

Re: Zane Musgrove

He was a very good player in 2017 one of Souths best props. Went off the rails last year but young and big. I’d be surprised if players aren’t being moved on as there is no chance he is one of the last two spots we have to fill otherwise we are toast.

Re: Premiership pushes Matterson further

Matterson will be our best signing since Gareth Ellis. Big call but I rate him good speed, size, great defender and good ball skills. Sounds like he has the right work ethic.
Many players come into pre season out of shape.

Re: Ivan Cleary opens up on Penrith return and controversial Tigers exit

Damage was done his reputation is tarnished and he has heaped pressure on big time. If he doesn’t win a premiership in 3 years he won’t see out the contract.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Mau is good but plays exclusively left edge back row. Not the player we need with Lawrence, Matterson and MCK. He’s be too costly. We need a real lock that plays as a third prop with mobility.

I think Mikalele or Twal could be the player from within. ET doesn’t provide punch in the modern game.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Cook apparently seeking $4m over 4 years. Call me biased but I think at height of his powers, RF had him covered for all round skills. Not to say Cook isn't a very good hooker but not worth that money. https://twitter.com/NBWT__/status/1060131797751627776?s=19 Yep I saw that earlier today. Surely t...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

It makes sense for Canberra. Wighton is their highest paid player. Dufty will come cheap and is on the outer at the Dragons. It would allow the Raiders to sign Shaun Johnson in the halves. Wighton would be our best outside back by some distance we are weak outwide compared to the big clubs. Great si...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I would be offering cook a 5 year 5m deal. Unlikely he leaves Souths but money talks. We have a few players coming off contract next year if we have to go another direction at halfback that’s okay. Asking for $800k apparently. Give it to him now. I would have paid more. If we are going to throw hug...

Re: Hayne plane

Not a player we should target at any price. Destabilising influence, self admitted poor trainer, big media target and not at the level of play that warrants all the negatives.
It only makes sense for the Eels and if they aren’t rushing in it should tell you all that you need to know.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

You don’t compete with the Roosters to sign players. If Roosters want him he is gone. They don’t miss out. If he doesn’t accept the offer of circa 700k you let him leave and sign Shaun Johnson on similar coin. I don’t believe the Roosters will target Brooks at all. Keary will move to halfback when C...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

If we snare Fitzgibbon and Hess our 2020 second row would be pretty great: 11. Hess 12. Fitzgibbon 13. Matterson They could be there for 5+ years That would change our small weak backrow. Hess is 6’3 118, Matterson 6’5 107, Fitzgibbon 6’4 107. To put out back row in perspective Lawrence is 6’1 100,...
