I'm not a huge fan of Lowe, but he would be a definite upgrade on McQueen.
Just looked up how old Lowe is - 27 years old. Thought he was older!
I'd take a chance on Lowe, a big mobile, mongrel style back rower, who runs good lines out wide .. and he can kick goals. He certainly would an upgrade on McQueen .. probably got more ink than McQueen too .. lol
Was great last season but don't know whats happened this year. Their whole team hasnt fired Lowe included

Thanks Jirskyr and Demps for replying to my post.. Roberts-Davis is a bit bigger than JAC and a bit faster. I

I believe our younger players will really come on now leading up to next season. Like most years, many of our answers in terms of filling NRL vacancies will have to be found from within. Mikaele at 13 and Smith in 4 look good to me.

This will explain things for you =

Roberts-Davis is cousins with teammate Tyrone Roberts and Brisbane Broncos player James Roberts,[2] and the nephew of former NRL player Amos Roberts.

I also believe he is related to ex Balmain 5/8 Paul Davis.

just seen that joel moon who is 30, will return to the NRL next year. have watched quite a bit of him, he is still a very good player, would he be a good signing, he is a big fast center.

Enough said.


Let's sign more over the hill, one foot in the grave, other foot in the retirement home duds.

Macqueen for Ethan Lowe? I heard he's being moved on but not sure if he's off contract.
POM said MacQueen leaving would work in our favour.
Gallagher, I took POM's comment as meaning any financial negotiation would mostly be in our favour.

so thompson and founa are crap players too, they have come back and played well, and if u watch the super league u would see moon is a class player who always got better raps than the two i just mentioned.

I said Rankin is no endirsement for the ESL, Thompson and Fonua I didn't mention, but they have exceeded expectations

Just Sign Taupau
He wants out of Manly
He would be a great addition to our forwards
Our forwards have held ther own this year and Taupau would add extra to that

I would love to know just how much money the club has to spend in the cap
We have to invest in one or two class players to start the ball rolling
Others will then follow
The off season will be very interesting

It will be an interesting offseason. There is little improvement left in this team. They are playing to their talent level for the most part.
I can’t see this lineup any better than 9th.

We need 3 class players in the starting squad. In terms of players rumoured to be on the outer Taupau, Feki, Terepo would get us in the top 8.

All three players you mentioned are all get able for us. I would also like us to sign a few good up and coming players that there pathway is blocked.

So true, I actually think our present roster has over achieved to probably finish 9th. You also have to ask yourself what players are still on the up, what players have plateaued and what players are on the slide.

We need a massive injection of speed size and power and no more journeymen looking for that last juicy contract
