Is it true? Matt Moylan approached the Tigers when he wanted to leave the Panthers and we knocked him back
Apparently so only wanted to come here are a 5/8,but Ivan had already signed Grub.
I've heard Cronulla promised Moylan the 5/8 spot but played him at fullback and he wasn't happy.
I think they will now play him at 5/8 even though he is better suited to fullback. They have got themselves into a pickle there.
Glad we didn't sign him - too precious and he ain't that good!

On Hastings, from what I've seen of him he has talent. Been at the roosters and now Manly and it's funny that a talented kid ends up in fights with the likes of DCE at Manly and The Rorters. DCE has no morals, that was shown with the Titans deal. He presents himself well spoken but from what i see, not know, I would hate to spend a moment talking to him. Kinda person i would very much dislike captian or knot. I'm thinking it might be more the 2 clubs he has been at and the type of player he has had to play with that has caused his problems. I would give him a go. Strict terms though.
Did you hear what Paul Kent said tonight about Hastings he said Shaun Lane was rooming with Hastings and backs Hastings in his statement of what happened and other players have text Hastings offering there support two sides to the story

Gildart is very good young center who would improve out of sight in the NRL. He is deceptively strong and very quick....would not take him much on salary to come over as he would only be on about £50k max in the Super League.
On field is no problem. I think it's the off seasons, the week to week training.. the hard work required to make it in NRL that a lot of Poms struggle with

Would not surprise... he is the little fish. Need to protect DCE as he is the centre or part of the salary cap breaches.... piss him off could open a can of worms for the club! I think the senior officials will do as he wants to keep him quiet! Just a guess.
Do not go where the path may lead go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I guess that Euan Aitken at 182 and 93 kg would also find it hard.

Extra 11kgs makes a big difference , your talking over 10% extra weight

I've never seen Gildart , but as someone else said , been a long time since an ESL back has looked even remotely good an a consistent basis

Widdup is the last one that stands out

We need centre depth for sure we have lost Suli, Milne who most would have pencilled in as our starters.

I haven't seen anything of Gildart either, but I do agree, having taken a look at him this week, he's a little on the small side for your typical NRL centre. Your point is well made, less about height and more about weight.

Gildart honestly looks very much a fullback in terms of body type. But I'll let the coaches figure that out.

If the news is true, fairly outside-of-box thinking from WT.

I say, go for it. He wouldn't cost much and we need to explore all options with so few young centres available.

Yeah, Widdop moved to Australia with his family when he was 16 and came through the Storm system. He is not an example of an ESL back.

Lets see. Yes people are right that the Tigers will really need to try and build this guy. But were better off picking people flying under the radar. Unsure if he will want 300k or just an opportunity signing. If it's opportunity, grab it with both hands.

Ross has been making some bad errors hes not an upgrade
I can’t believe anyone would see Ross as an upgrade.... our wingers aren’t champions, but they’re doing their jobs.
Ross is an average player at best.
I'm with you. I can't even see why its a discussion point.
Do we really need a "depth" back center. Really?
I'm happy if we create competition with Kevie and Marsters, but I don't see this guy doing it.
That being said it seems like Cleary likes gutsy centers. Maybe there was talk of Marsters walking. Now that he is signed we might loose interest in Ross.
I would rather blood gamble or someone else. Then again Cleary likes competition in his sides and he seems to want strong centers for defensive reasons. Maybe Ross fits his mould, but I would not open the bank account for him.

Wondering though if many Newcastle players are thinking of leaving since the Easts came in? Not saying we should take them but it's a question.

I'm with both of you. I can't see Ross being an upgrade at all and he would take the opportunity away from an ISP centre such as Tali.

That's because when they gave him a run in first grade he stank it up badly.
