Wasn't JWH linked with a exit from the Rooster? If he is still gettable i wouldn't seeing him in a Tigers Jersey.
No he has never been credibly linked with a move, someone on here just made it up.

Signing Dyaln Walker would make things interesting. One he gives a bit of class out wide. We desperately need class and try scoring ability. Two he pushes Fonua and Momorovski to back up roles and gives the squad a better looking balance and depth.

Ive come around to it, all for it.

Still only young and has his best in front of him.
Its an opinion!

Walker In 2017 he averaged 110 metres, 11 tackles a game. Scored 12 tries and had 10 try assists.

Was injured and had family issues last year along with playing 5/8.

Has issues defensively but electric in attack.
We need speed and point scorers. Would compliment Marsters well.

When right he is damaging

Article in SMH suggests Storm are in a pickle with their cap, need to offload players to free up enough cap space for Cameron Smith. Players mentioned are Sam Kasiano, Patrick Kaufusi and Cheyse Blair with the Storm prepared to pay a portion of their freight. Personally I wouldn’t be interested in any of those players.

The Storm can only offload players that other clubs want and with most other clubs rosters almost complete and available funds tight the Storm will find themselves at the mercy of the few clubs that do have roster and cap space, so there could be some interesting developments as obviously player movements are required to accommodate Smith.

Cheyse Blair would be an upgrade on the Tane Milne and Moses Suli spots on the roster.

I had quick scan through the Storm roster, I would consider targeting Christian Welch if the Musgrove signing doesn’t happen. Welch has been solid, reliable and consistent bench middle forward. Plays hard with a bit aggression, current contract expires at the end of 2019, so he’d be thinking about his next contract.

Good player. Storm won’t lose anyone they want to keep they’ll send a few boats to players as a Christmas gift by secret Santa.

Im a fan of Welch. Perfect Maguire recruit!

Id say Drinkwater and Hughes but we would be absolutely no chance.

Perhaps Billy Walters.

I'd look at Finucane. He'd free up more cap space for them than Welch.

Yea, I would look at raiding the Storm too.

McGuire was once an assistant coach with Bellamy. I suspect he may know Fonua and Roccow from his time there.

I could definitely see us doing some raiding of the forwards, but also too maybe a swap on an outside back. Unsure if Curtis Scott or William Chambers could be poached. Kasiano is ofcourse the name everyone is talking about, and we could use his impact in the front (if he host his inconsistency that would be awesome). But many of their forwards would be welcome in our pack.

I guess if it is consistent with Maguire's plan who knows. He's demonstrated already he is prepared to move players along to sign others.
i hope i missed something, but who has he moved on, and who has he signed?

Yeah he had Rochow at Souths also

I couldn't see Finucane succeeding at the WT's , we have enough workaholics , we need impact in our pack

He'd only be slight upgrade on Eisenhuth and double the money

Patrick Kafusi went well for Easts this year. He was aggressive and fit. If we don't get Musgrove he'd be a good replacement for bench prop.

Disagree. Just because he has a high workrate doesn't mean he lacks impact. He hits hard in defence and is often the one digging into the line inside the 20 before Melbourne take it wide. He's miles ahead of Eisenhuth...

One of the funniest quotes this year. Finucanne a slight upgrade on Eiso. It’s like comparing a Bentley to a Great Wall.
He’s in the top 5 locks in the game Bellamy knows how good he is. Has big impact and works hard with no ego. Dogs letting him go for TREX is one of the worst all time recruitment decisions.

Agree, one of the forgotten men who should have played origin by now....In my opinion.
Been in 4 grand finals in the 5 years......must have no impact on a game at all.
