this cannot be true :bash (according to some fans here) but it must mean something when the 2nd club wants to pay him just to be away from their club ;)

Word on the street is that Robbie Farah will be at Parra by next week to play against us in rd 4 .
Souths paying half his freight .
Where you hear this mate? Please pleeeaaaasssee tell me this is true :roll
http://www.1eyedeel.com/m/discussion?id ... %3A3782835

After Cameron King copped yet another injury in the Eels floppy start to 2018, the head-honchos at Parramatta are apparently looking into Robbie Farah as a potential solution to the hooker problem.
Farah's unwanted at South Sydney, and they would be willing to pay 50% of his contract. With Parramatta having some space in the cap, it's just a matter of agreeing on the finer points.
Expect this to be announced before the Eels take on the Tigers in Round 4.
Please make this happen aye, that would be bloody hilarious.

Hang on.

Who's said Nofo is on over 400k per year?

I've heard he's on little more than half of that (200-250K)
I think it would be pretty close to 400 k , remember Parra were circling

Also he was in probably career best form when he signed last year Dawg and we'd just been rejected by the Larry , Mo and Curly
Lads, my insiders at the Panthers have told me Mansour has requested $700k, make of it what you will.
That's a bit much for Mansour
I do like the guy as a player but that's a bit much
$450'000 absolute max on because of his experience

Not saying Mansour is worth 750, but the game has changed and wingers are more important. Just ask Parra sans Radradra.

Remember, we splurge now our options will be more limited in the future.
Mansour is a class act. Its good to have a winger who is over the line and can defend.

But if were talking 500+ then we should save our powder for N Cleary or a great forward/second row upgrade.
Our wings are a little slow but not our biggest problem. Halfback followed by fullback would be where I would look.
Saying yes to Mansour may make N Cleary an impossibility. We should resign Thompson who is only on 1 year as well.

There seems to be a lot of talk on here about signing more outside backs. To me it seem we have plenty of depth in this area considering the guys playing reserve grade. I think we might need a specialist fullback, but I still think Tui deserve a good crack.... he could be great.

What i think we are in desperate need of is a couple of quality second rowers who can run a line. Unfortunately I don't think we will score many points while Lawrence (hands like feet) and Rochow are our back rowers. Our best years were with Gareth Ellis and Simon Dwyer. We need a couple of players in the Gillett, Cordner, Crichton, Kafusi, Hess mould.

Not sure where you find them.......

Agreed we have plenty of depth, but an outside back with genuine speed would make a big difference.

We have depth, but limited impact. We need to look for high impact edge players (centres & backrowers), wingers, and fullbacks. Players that can break the line. Marsters has a good offload, but has usually been stopped when he offloads.

We have depth but no speed and no class, but you have to be impressed with what they have produced in he past three weeks

We need our quickest player (Thommo) lurking near our best offloader (Esan),

Sign Isaako ............ tough little nut, plays anywhere in back line and a goal kicker.
Great composure and attitude for such a young player.

We already have an 80%+ goal kicker in the squad - Tyson Gamble
