Cool
I don't mind Lowe, but he's pretty much more of what we already have in the forwards, though he can kick goals very well. I would rather we target some sort of impact backrower instead.
Yeah I tend to agree with you. With the exception of his goal kicking i’m not sure what else he adds to what we already have.

And with Kelly if he’s signed to play centre I assume Marsters to back row? But then why look at Lowe as well?
Kelly is left centre. Won't effect Marsters.
Ah ok cool, that explains it then.

Lodge just said in his motm interview Western Sydney is gods country, he has been really good for the Broncos this year.

Only signed for this year and could be tempted back to Sydney...

Ethan Lowe insights for 2019.
Has been bog average this year. Why do we sign players that are past their peak & not wanted by his current club.
Correct he has gone off the boil big time this year, now starting from the bench.
Whether he has the sookie la la’s because Hess is getting a start in front of him, but he is nowhere the player he was last year.

No, he's dirt. Plus Penrith are after him and the Broncos want to keep him = $$$

Good I’ve been campaigning for him on here since last year. Makes too much sense plays 80, no mistakes, good defender and kicks goals at a good clip.

Surprised Penrith think they need him, they seem stacked up front.

To be fair to Lowe, none of the Cowboys players are anywhere near where they were last year. He's still not what we need though.

Cut him some slack , he has had either 2-3 HIA's this season from memory

He was borderline origin for 3 years prior. The entire Cowboys roster has been poor. I’d prefer to buy a player that has been playing consistently at a high level for 3 years and having a bad 10 games than a player with 3 poor years and 10 good games ie: Mbye.

Bellamy won’t keep him if he’s on the way.
Lodge is a rugged front rower but he should have been banned for life in my view.

Lodge can certainly play but i dont know if i could ever accept him representing our club ever again.He has shown zero contrition and remorse for his disgusting behaviour

Well the reemergence of The Pom should provide enough stimulus to kick this thread way past 800 pages by the end of the weekend.
PS - Lowe would be brilliant. High minutes, low mistake rate, good defender

Kelly a done deal - Mbye talk is real - Lowe a target. Cheers The Pom

Brain Kelly is a good signing.... basically a replacement for Kev

Mbye I’ve already stated my opinions on

Ethan Lowe would be a great signing he can kick goals which is a massive plus and his value wouldn’t be too high cause he has had a poor season

Lodge, Su’a, Pangai Jr, Oats and Issako you have to go hard for at least one of them....

Issako and Lodge would be perfect imo

Seriously ... Kelly is not even an upgrade on Kev.

I’d take Lowe for his goal kicking alone! In all seriousness though, I would genuinely like that signing.

Kelly I’m not fussed with... whether we get him or not I wouldn’t care either way.

I’m not that keen on Mbye, though would accept him if we can get him at a good discount.

I’ve always liked him as a player good goal kicker too but this year he isn’t the player he was last year.
Even off the bench.
