Lol you've got no idea if you don't think Takairangi would be an upgrade and he also offers versatility.
He'd be better than the options we have at left centre but we don't have unlimited roster spots and personally I'd rather us aim higher and try to land a real strike weapon for the back line. He'd be ok as a stop-gap for 2019 at left centre if we were targeting a bigger name for 2020 I guess, especially given his utility value as he could move to bench/depth in 2020.

And we still got to top up his contract for three years running
forum myth

Not a myth he sign a contract with the Tigers and Taylor did not want him The Tigers made up the rest of the money
This is all ive seen on the topic, posts like yours on this forum that prove nothing...maybe I was away at the time?
With Takairangi If i remember correctly he was the next big thing at the Roosters had a ego and a run in with Taylor or Green in the lower grades and they cut him

Below is proof that the Panthers are looking to get out of Merrin's last two years. It comes from a dude who calls himself the Masked Panther and is from a Panther's mouthpiece paper, the Western Weekender. Grubby approach

Which Panthers first grader is actually banned from entering Panthers Leagues Club? It didn’t stop him being on site last weekend.

Concerns are growing about Trent Merrin and his poor finish to the season. The 28-year-old is on big money at the Panthers but was disappointing at the back end of the year and, rumour has it, is becoming less and less focused on football. It hasn’t gone unnoticed that Merrin makes himself the centre of attention in the club’s victory song after games, despite his poor performances on the field.

Link gives more on other things which are of interest:
http://westernweekender.com.au/2018/09/ ... one-to-go/
Those are two seperate stories you have put in your post and in your post it sounds like Merrin is the player band from the club, which is not the case.
Apologies, that was the way I read it but I see you are probably right. That aside it's still a carve up of Merrin
We need to sign some young forwards, we already have old heads In The pack.
Thomas Mikaele needs to be extended, I saw a lot of him in isp this year that shows he’s first grade standard and a contrast to the forwards we have already.
No to merrin.

i get where ur coming from nelson, but why would we be waiting to 2020 to sign a bigger name we has cash now , yet no one. i think if we wait till 2020 u will be waiting to 2021 then 2022 and so on.

Toovey did a great job for Manly, both as a player and coach - they showed him scant respect in showing him the door. I like a coach that can fire up! Would be great for us.
Toovey and Madge both similar mould.

Javed Bowen released by Cowboys and Tyrone Roberts-Davis released by Titans....

I want Roberts-Davis at our club. He needs some love but think JAC.

The Lurker
 Newcastle's dilemma

He’s the best young forward to come out of Newcastle for many years - but I’m hearing Lachlan Fitzgibbon isn’t happy and wants out for next season.

The 24-year-old Fitzgibbon had a great year in 2018 and looks to have a massive future in the game.

But for some reason - probably a secret approach for a rival club - he is looking to get a release from the final year of his contract in 2019.

It leaves the Knights with the classic dilemma: do you keep a player who isn’t happy, or just cut him loose?

Fitzgibbon is all class; a power forward with the ability to break the line, and would be a massive loss for the club.

Knights officials are desperately trying to solve his problems and make him feel an integral part of the club again

Sounds like someone we could be targeting
Not on big $
A position we need to bolster

Yeah 25 years ago 100 % with you Geo

Same goes for Ricky Stuart , Paul Green , Mal Meninga , Kevin Walters , Nathan Brown , Steve Kearney , Trent Barrett and Brad Fittler

Actually look what I've done , sorted out our centre issue ,back row issue and it would be a case of Luke Who, Benji Who and Josh Who with those halves

Bloody hell , we'd have Kevin Walters on the bench :lol:

Oh Ok :roll:

We couldn't afford the weekly investigations we would need to hold ;)

Your forever on about signing the Honey Bagder in your PM's

Why don't you push him on the Suggestions and rumours page

Might help us over the 1000 page mark , better option than Curtis Rona as well , funnier and better looking with those golden locks
