Hang on.

Who's said Nofo is on over 400k per year?

I've heard he's on little more than half of that (200-250K)
I think it would be pretty close to 400 k , remember Parra were circling

Also he was in probably career best form when he signed last year Dawg and we'd just been rejected by the Larry , Mo and Curly

Why in the world would anyone want Nathan Ross at any price?
Buggered if I know. Certainly not what we need.

I like Ross' enthusiasm, but we saw how bad he could be when we last played Newcastle, he had an absolute shocker.

I'm with you Willow - can't see the attraction.

Can see the attraction of Mansour at a reasonable figure thou'.
He nis an Australian and SOO winger, hard to tackle, takes the hard yards and a good finisher.

Agree re Ross. I wouldn’t want him at any price. Mansour is a good player but I’d prefer we signed someone faster and perhaps a little more vertically well endowed.

Ross fits into the mould of outside back Cleary has looked for - Solid, hard working, great attitude and not crazy expensive. The focus is on 30 First graders whereas Roosters go for 5 stars, 13 FG and 12 genuine reserve graders

For those saying you wouldn’t pay 400k for Mansour you’re kidding yourselves.

Mansour is a NSW winger who is key to penriths attack and he can defend too, he kickstarts plays so well and takes the big runs no one wants too take, he can finish as well.

MWZ yeah he’s improving but Mansour is better and if MWZ is making such a strong case the bloke is a centre too.

Mansour and Nofa would kickstart our attack so dynamically, and he’d help our chances in bringing Nathan Cleary to the club too.....

Kevy and MWZ on $450k or a NSW representative in Mansour, I know what I’d take for the same price
Exactly
Nofo and Masour as our wingers is a great pair of wingers
Masters and ???? As our centers
Thompson at fullback if he can continue to play as he has
Maybe and just maybe if Fonoa can improve his fitness levels he could be a good damaging centre
But that's a long shot at this point

I haven't given up on Milne OR Fonua at this early stage,either of which cld potentially contribute as much as whats available in the marketplace and theyre already on our books
Notice Fonua got MOM in ISC cup last w/e...but still looked vulnerable under high ball..and Milne,for all his potential and RLWC heroics,was not really a standout unfortunately.
Think they'll both get there in 18 sooner rather than later

Not giving up on Lolohea at all
I named the 1 to 5
Would be happy for Lolohea to lift his game more
Thompson is certainly pushing him for the fullback spot
I think you just might see Lolohea back in the halves some time this season
But that will be a log jam if all are fit as well
It's good to have depth
If you want your spot you have to earn it this year
No walk up starters
