Stay tuned guys. Massive news coming through. Game changer. Should be announced next week. And no it's not RTS
The only game changer in a team is the Half or Fullback...given RTS has been ruled out......

The only players in the whole NRL I can see us as having a big chance to get (as in the player wanting hopefully to come to us) is RTS or Cleary.

Must be Cleary, but Gus would need another big signing lined up to save face, before he let him go. (Mind you, Maloney at the Panthers is already huge)

Needs an NRL clearance. Just saying. If it gets the OK Big chance will be here this year.

So it's for 2019 without approval and 2018 if cleared?

Personally don't like the idea of signing anyone a year early, especially the coache's son. Massive conflict of interest and I've been nothing but positive about the Clearys to date.

I don't see coach Cleary wasting time with Carney, and Barba sounds dodgy also.
Folau I would have thought one of the bigger clubs would gobble him back up.

Ahh, the suspense is too much..

Thanks for the heads up so far SG, you can give us a name mate when you're ready, we understand it's a BIG chance not a definite.

HALF clues?

BACK in the day I may have given FULL clues but not anymore.
I can't believe I'm engaging with this but going off your clues you seem to be suggesting a former fullback, now a half. So Morgan or Munster.

Izzie Folau would be an interesting fit... although a fullback to halfback leaves.... erm....

Darren Lockyer?

Aiden Sezer?

Jordan Rankin making his triumphant return??

Dave Taylor?? Worlds largest halfback who was training as a fullback for the Wolfpack???

Quade Cooper?!?

Will Genia?!?!?!?!

JOHNNY WILKINSON?!?!?!?!?!?

...Don't mind me.

Hope you come through with the goods SG, describing the signing as a 'game changer' will have expectation through the roof!

Cheers for the info though....

If Cleary went to Gus and said I don't want to play here, i won't extend my contract under any circumstances, and i will go to club X as soon as my contract expires or as soon as I possibly can then what would Gus say? Would he let him go straight away? Probably not as he'd need a replacement, but next season would certainly be possible.

They want to use him as the foundation building block for their club's future. If he has absolutely no desire to do so anymore then the Panthers would be best suited to find someone else who want's to be the centre of the club.

Might need NRL clearance seeing he's under contract for 2 more years?

Dont forget Karmichael Hunt :lol:

I was thinking Matt Moylan would be a trivial piece for the NRL to confirm considering his deal at the Sharks is tied to Penrith still?

it has to be BARBA, it was mentioned on 360 the other night he wanted to comeback to the NRL. ticks the box about needing a clearance, so put me down for him. can some frame a player market so we can have odds and a bit of fun.
