I missed the game but going by the lack of talk in here I can tell he played well at fullback.

Hopefully Ivan gets him over the line

Had a good game but I thought his urgency in defense was a bit poor, especially near his own try line.

Kind of like Tedesco when he wanted out of the club.

I think Holmes will be going home

Sometimes these articles are nothing more than Holmes and his manager leaking this info to increase the Wests Tigers offer.

The strong wording suggests as much.

The Tigers come back with 50 to 100k more or that extra year in the contract and then he signs.

Hope to hear something in the next week now

So the Tigers interest in Holmes isn't fake news like other people say?

Need to find a taker for Coote first , if not Coote would be mad not to take the option in his favour at NQC

But Coote wants to move to sydney... Anyone feel another swap deal coming on? Cronulla are going to need experience in the back for their young spine. Coote might be excellent for them, another kicking option to help Moylan and Townsend out...

Coote seems an odd choice for Cronulla. They have a stack of Juniors and Moylan, Dugan, etc. They do seem to be an old players retirement home and if Coote comes at the right price, they will take him.

But if Coote comes at the right price, Why don't we take him? If we move Thompson to the wing and have MWZ or Fonua solid on the other flank, then we can get Coote setting up those tries. He probably has an Ivan connection too.

I think for the Sharks its all about Kyle Flanagan and Sione Katoa.

I doubt theyll even look at a player like Coote

We DO NOT want Coote .. at 28 yrs he's washed up, too slow, bad knees, and besides he's not that good.
