I’d rather Roosters style recruitment over panthers any day of the week. #sombrero
The Tigers had there chance to get Jamie Matthiou when he walked out on the Gold Coast before returning to the Roosters, the Tigers should sign a very close friend of his who is a great judge of a footballer & ironically Ivan Cleary's brother in-law Josh Stuart.
The Roosters cap is quite admirable if you look at it in a positive light...

And from what I’ve heard from a solid source they aren’t stopping anytime soon as they’re keen on Coote

Why would they be keen on Coote when they have Tedesco!?

Why would Coote fathom this idea?

Maybe because I was told as parra are keen on Keary they turn Coote into a running 5/8 that’s the only way I can think about it

Being impatient and rushing out to sign a player to replace those we have or will release this year is why we are here today
Eg
Tui
Rochow
McQueen and others
If we sign players just because they are available now we will end up in the same predicament next year

It is hard
We all know that
But waiting and making a play for class players is really in our best interest and that's what we all want
Class signings
Not could be's or Maybe's
Look at Newcastle
They landed Pierce
Who would have thought
As clubs struggle with the salary cap
We have an opportunity to pounce
It’s not like the Knights got Pierce on a good deal though. They paid overs, just like we are going to have to do for those players. That’s clearly one of our strategies and the other, looking for diamonds in the rough, landed guys like Rochow and Tui. Until our TPA game lifts it’s our best shot. The other strategy is to develop successful junior players and something I think Ivan will successfully do.
Agreed
Just dont want to buy ordinary players
After Robbie and Benji helped us win today I am beginning to think that we should resign them on a small $ contract
If they truly love the club the amount of money they receive should not matter
They played well today
Happy to admit that I didn't think that they had it in them
If they sign on a minimum contract then we have plenty of experience will still having money for top line players

Although today was a great win we cant forget that a number of Dragons players backed up from origin
We were still good enough to win
WOOOO WHOOOO
I agree with most of what u said except the word small contract.

Im starting to realise as a fan i have to see things from the players view aswell.

Why should farah and Marshall in key positions go on a small contract or deserve one. The same club that turfed them and failed to replace them.

They deserve a decent contract if go on for 1 more year.
I can't see them signing elsewhere and we will pay them good money to do what they love at the club they love. A small contract works for us and them.

Why don't we have a shot at Wakins for the Rhinos? He is a representative center.

So good to see the Roosters replace a rep player with another one.. They will maintain the 15+ rep players :brick:

Signed with the Rhinos until 2021, as much as he would be valuable to us, I doubt he'll ever leave England.

The Dogs are going to struggle to retain Martin due to their cap. Considering we’re skinnier than Kate Moss in the backrow you would think our interest would be a no brainer.

See my other thread. We don’t need a goal kicker

TPJ set to leave broncos - roosters and Knights mentioned. 600k price for TPJ.
Su'A deal with rabbits has fallen through and still on the market.
We should be going in for both players in my opinion.

Pangai Jr at 600k on a long term deal would be a steal imo - over time his value will only increase

Su'a is a great young player but would I pay 500k for him yet.... no not really hasn't fully proved himself yet unlike TPJ

Martin is class and should be targeted heavily more than anyone, he can kick perfectly and brings some impact which we desperately lack he wouldn't be commanding big money but Mcqueen's contract would look identical I'd assume so if we can offload him would be a win/win

Pangai jr and Martin would be ideal inclusions
