Nathan and Ivan to the Roosters. Add RTS to that as well.

I think it's actually 82% chance...
The plot thickens but is that 82% of him coming or not coming ;)
50/50...
Hmmmmm, and what are the chances of getting the hyphen?

Cleary being 80% chance to come here and even having a chance of getting both him and RTS is hyperbole.

I honestly just want to see us develop our squad over time. If we get a marquee signing great but if we do I'd like to see that signing as a proven game winner like Morgan for instance or in a position we really need to improve.

Wests Tigers interest may wane if Lolohea starts the season all guns blazing in the fullback role. If RTS does sign with the Tigers we will certainly have a number of ex warriors players on the books as well as an ex warriors coach!!

Whether true or false. This is good news. It shows, after building a solid squad, we are still looking at marquee players! Surely this also helps when recruiting other players.

Worst case scenario RTS's value sky rockets and another team pays overs.
Well if it's false it doesn't really show that does it....
Well the fact it's published online does actually..... The whole point is whether it's true or false, it is out there now that we are interested. Most will read the article and believe it.

Hyperbole is possibly 83.5% correct?!

I see relevance in signing RTS at this stage, as Lolohea isnt proven at being a great Fullback yet.

I doubt it will be a quick signing, so Lolohea will get his chance to shine.

They are chasing from 2019 onwards. Dont forget Benji is only signed for 2018. I would assume if Tigers were to land RTS, Tui would move into the #14 role that benji will probably play for us this year. Tuis versatillity is probably going to hurt him ever locking down a starting spot long time. He however is very handy as a #14 who could cover any position in the backline + come on with tired defence to create opportunities.

Tui at 14 would be an absolute waste of a very talented player.

He needs to be in the team for 80 minutes - he is a thinking and creative player that makes opportunities for other players. He backs up, reads the game very well and is a very good defender at full back.

Let RTS go to the Rorters - save the money for a marquee player that we need.

RTS had better pull his finger out if he wants the big money.
Very poor 2017.

As I see it .. is RTS a quality player yes at prestent is he worth marquee money on recent form No! Last season he was very poor why that was who knows but he has to produce a lot more this season to expect the big $$$

Why can’t we sign RTS and stick him at left wing or in centre.
His pretty rubbish at fullback.
Personally I think Tui has a higher ceiling in that position.

If you think about it.
Using this as an example of the style of fullback of the 2 not comparing actual talent.
RTS is like Val Homes.
Tui is like Ben Barba.
Based on the style we’d use I think I’d prefer a Ben Barba type.
I bet the sharks are missing him too.

The best time for us to get a player like RTS is when he is down on form.
Went to the Warriors on big money but reportedly is unhappy so dont think money will be the only motivation.
If we can show we are on the up and up, we are in with a shot. There is no doubting his ability and he would be a great addition to our squad.
