Call me someone who prefers to sign mediocre players if you don't have anything more intelligent to reply with, but by the time 2020 rolls around, Cook will be going on 30. No way id be investing significant money on him. Id be looking for someone a lot younger who would be a much longer term option.

Walker seems short...?
Oh no! Does that mean he won't be able to throw passes to tall players?
Mate. Don't be ridiculous.

The prototype centres/wingers these days are players such as Izzy Folau, Jharal Yow Yeh, Corey Oats.
Tall, athletic with a good vertical leap.

Our backline is one of if not the... shortest in the comp.

Thompson, Nofo, Mahe... as well as Kev.
These guys cannot compete with the Edrick Lee, Joey Manu and Maumalo's of the game.
Out contested every time.

Give me backline like;

1. RTS
2. Oates
3. Manu
4. Latrell
5. Maumalo

over midgets like Thompson, Mahe & Nofo any day.

Walker will be the best of our back 4 though, even though he's shorter than the tall boys mentioned.
Whoosh - that was sideline eye's comment going over your head Demps.

Walker is a gun. Has had his problems but would definitely add starch to our defence and attack.

Seibold will take Cook to the donkeys as he got the best out of him,No other coach went close
No chance, his manager is trying to milk the bunnies as he is after a new contract with an increase on next season included.

Cook’s manager Mario Tartak told The Daily Telegraph four clubs are chasing his client’s signature, including Souths.
There has been a club that has come in late,” Tartak said. “I would be reluctant (to name the club) because we basically agreed not to say anything.

I actually think he might struggle abit at the donkeys. Yes they have great potenrltial. But the average age of the team is 23 plus they still dont have a halfback. Good luck to him. I can't see major success coming though..

Can’t believe it, Madge has now been in the job for at least three hours and no marquee signing, no big presso. What’s going on....just not good enough

Test hooker Damien Cook has reportedly been given a last-ditch offer to follow Rabbitohs
coach Anthony Seibold to the Brisbane Broncos.
The Daily Telegraph reported the potential move, though it is still believed that Cook will sign
an extension with South Sydney worth about $800,000 per season.
Despite the Seibold link, a move to Brisbane for Cook would be surprising, given that the
Broncos have Queensland State of Origin hooker Andrew McCullough.
“There has been a club that has come in late,” Cook's manager Mario Tartak told the
Telegraph.
“I would be reluctant (to name the club) because we basically agreed not to say anything.
“We’re down to four clubs and that includes Souths. Two are in Sydney, one out of Sydney.
They are all strong offers.

I assume the person being quoted in the DT article is Cook’s manager. Doing the big sell on Cook. He’s sounding like a real estate agent.
in Ivan we distrust

There has to be a investigation into this.

I understand Mcquire commenced training work with the squad today, so I reckon this week will see some public pronouncements regarding players with re-signings and those told to look elsewhere, and possibly an elusive further signing.

For my 2 cents worth - Brooks extends, McQueen told to look elsewhere and something from totally left field Farah will announce only play 1/2 season and retire, handing reins to Liddle and WT to sign a back up hooker before 30 June.
