Does anyone think Oates will be as good in the second row as he is on the wing?
Solid winger, great finisher. Not sure about 2nd row, I think he'd give it a red hot crack.
If we were looking for a winger.. Not sure we are id sign him.
His hands are terrible at times

Rorters have sealed up and signed Victor Radley to a four year extension tying him to the club to 2023.

They have also allowed Blake Ferguson to start talks with other clubs, and first on his list is Newcastle ... Out-of-contract Sydney Roosters star Blake Ferguson has met with Knights coach Nathan Brown to discuss a possible move to Newcastle. Less than two weeks after the 28-year old lead the Roosters to a 18-16 win over the Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium, Ferguson returned to Newcastle and toured the club’s training base. Ferguson reportedly met with Brown over lunch to discuss the winger’s playing future.

Radley must have been signed up on hefty $$ contract extension.

Roster now full for 2018 with Mybe and Farah signing on this week, Kelly will have to wait for next year if at all.

We should have 1 spot left. Some are saying we can claim Curtis Sironen is taking that spot but we don’t have to.

I find this incredibly difficult to accept. Using Sironen in our squad this season when we're desperate for a centre just doesn't make any sense.

Sign someone from another club. AN experienced star, a young gun. Even promote one of our juniors (not that we have any centers close to FG mind you). First Suli and Milne sacked, then Fonua out injured and we have Naiqama left as our only centre option, who is already highly suspect.

We'd have to rely on MCK or Gamble to fill in for the rest of the season - which would be a huge risk.

Given the situation it just doesn't make sense not to use our final squad position

Given what was stated on Robbie's press release "Farah's signing along with that of Moses Mbye now fulfils Wests Tigers roster requirements for 2018" it would appear that we have closed up shop but if the Curtis Sironen option is available then this may not be the case.

It makes common sense to bring in a new centre before June 30. We currently skimming the bottom of the barrel for centres and we don't want another ludicrous situation as occured when Lovell was fulfilling the centre role.

Hopefully we can grab a centre before the deadline. I know it says our roster is now complete, I'm assuming we're counting siro in the 30. Plenty can change in a week. Who knows we might snag Kelly or someone else before June 30.
No more plodders!

Perhaps if there is no viable option they will front load contracts (Pascoe has said that previously) which will provide more funds for next year.

Fair call. He hasn’t been given a shot here ( 1 game at the end of last year and out of the top squad).

Agree

Maybe we tried hard for someone like Kelly but had no luck so now use Siro as no.30

We've got 10 days to sign someone, so hopefully we're doing everything we can to get it done.

Well reading the previous post that's a good question
Who much money do we have left in the kitty

My guess is around 6 to $800000
If so then that puts us in a good position next year to sign a few more quality players coming of contract

I thought Farah's signing has no impact on numbers as we are allegedly trading one of MM or Godinet to Souths?

It does state. Fulfills our roster REQUIREMENTS for this year. With Siro partly on the books and the 90 or 95% of total cap value required to be spent I’d say this is option 1, this would mean remainder cap money is front loaded. West tigers have completed their roster for what is required but it still leaves the door open to change if they attract a player to the club by June 30 but the door is closing quickly.
I get the feeling Kevin N will see out the year in the left centre position. Never minded that option anyway.

I dont take these kind of comments as fact.

Pascoe might have said that completes our roster but. . .

Sometimes a club is in negotiations with another club, the other club is playing hardball. We just come out and state we are done and wont be signing anymore.

Pressure back on the other club
Its an opinion!
