Starting to get a reasonable collection of kiwis in the squad. Concerning.
Maybe we should build a wall around Concord.
Maybe so. They are trying to build a winning culture and all these Kiwis do not bring that with them.

They have Cleary, who knows how to get the best out of them.

Any thoughts on Quade Cooper, he has been told by Reds new coach that he is not part of their plans next season.
He can be A Rock or a Diamond type player.

You should have posted this in the other thread where someone was looking for jokes for his party on the weekend.
Seriously though, no he is beyond useless.

Do they play Rugby League? I stand corrected then.

A bloke who broke into his mate's apartment to nick stuff isn't the sort of individual we want at our club. Simona would of gotten on well with him back in the day though.

Look if Godinet isn't better than any of fringe players we let go its an issue

Personally I reckon he isn't too bad a signing
X 2. He'll be better than Drinkwater and JLJ. If he does play any first grade at all.

Godinet does seem incredibly small for a hooker, and he'd be our 6th choice half for first grade so it seems an incredibly odd signing. Guys played 60 professional games, mostly in the UK, over the past 10 years. If he was any good he'd have played 150-200 games by now.

If he was on a nsw cup contract i'd be very happy, taking up a spot in our 30 when we lack so much x factor and game breaking ability is a worry.

Ive been saying this about the warriors the last couple of years. Everyone in nz gets so excited that theyve pretty much signed the entire kiwis squad in the last few years... however theyre blind to the fact that the kiwis squad is hopeless!

I think the difference with the tigers' signings is the fact that its generally the kiwis/warriors big names that contribute to poor culture/performance... not frige players.

I.E shaun johnson, adam blair, isaac luke are the tyoes to be questioned.

Matulinos not been a "big name" for a few seasons now and hasnt done too much to be criticized on.

Packer threw that intercept in the world cup but apart from that hes more or less on the same page as matulino.

Godinets never been given the opportunity to have a winning or losing impact on a team and elijah taylor is aparently our best player.

I suppose it could be seen as concerning that we are signing all these kiwis but in my opinion its nothing to worry about until we start signing kiwi "superstars" (johnson, luke etc)

With Tui at fullback Reynolds and Brooks in half’s and Marshall Utility ..... and with couple of injuries to that lot ....... I can’t really see too much cover apart from Gamble and he is in the untested basket.

I agree, French is a pretzel - ready to snap.
He is a 'footballer', something sadly lacking in the modern game that caters more and more for athletic giants.

No but we openly accepted someone who knocked a guy to the ground and then stomped on his head.
You want to look at the meaning of "Double standards".

Not to mention the love for the grub which I have never understood.. the bloke is a star in the nightclubs but nowhere else.

Overpaying Matulino, Reynolds and Packer has left no room for a decent crack at Crichton seemingly

Crichton has come out saying he wants to win premierships. He won't stay with Souths, and there's no way he'd come to us. (Maybe in a year or so our rep might start to change. Fingers crossed.)

He's headed to a big name club, we could have offered him a $1m/per year and still not got him. (Roosters would just pay him $500k, but then another $500k through TPAs.)
A one eyed supporter, mostly :crazy, always :sign:

Both him and Nick Frisby have been told to search elsewhere for next year by new coach Brad Thorn.

There has been a link to the titans I’m led to believe but nothing substantial, I’d imagine he’ll go overseas and stay at the 15 man game.
