Hmm I don’t know how to feel about this... to me his best position is a running 5/8, and I can only assume we’re getting him to play fullback. I see similarities to the signing of Lolohea, albeit Mbye has a bit more talent. Hopefully it works out, and I love that the dogs will be paying part of his salary.
I dont really see it the comparison personally. Tui was a talented player in and out of the top grade before we signed him. Mbye has been a regular first grader, puts in extras and with a running role his game has significantly improved.

For me, it doesn't matter where he plays as long as he isn't organising the team, he will do well. A running 6 outside Brooks or Cleary with Tui "firing" at 1 would be great. But I think the obvious scenario is Mbye at 1, and I'm very happy with that.

BTW, dont expect an announcement before Sunday's game. Tigers have more class then that. If it is a done deal, they will certainly wait until after they play the dogs to announce it.

If true, a really good signing. He ticks a lot of boxes that we need ticked and seems like a really well adjusted kid. A couple more signings like this will make us a very handy side next year

500k per year for 3 years is a good signing.
His conversion to fullback has been a success. He will improve has youth on his side. It doesn’t matter who we front load as it’s a total cap number. I assume it will be existing players who we extend this year and want to keep or: Eiso, Marsters.

If we can sign Kelly, Lowe and extend Mikalele we should have room for another 5 or so players.

We could have just signed our long term fullback. Still a lot to play out but there is every chance Cleary sees him as our fullback.

Ill wait until Cleary comes out with his intentions but one thing is for sure Moses Mybe is a quality player and a quality human who will help lead our culture change.
Its an opinion!

Great signing. Dare i say, he may be one of our best ever.

He brings a natural ball playing running game to the fullback position. Something that we have lacked for a while.

Benji will soon be gone, Reynolds doesn’t bring organisation. The pressure would be on Brooks.

However, bringing in Mbye adds an extra dynamic. Kicking game, organisation, etc.

I agree Patriot.
A goal kicker a player tossed up for QLD origin selection not to long ago.
And at 24 he may very well be our long term fullback.

Could Ivan be looking at using Mbye at 9 until Liddle is ready?

Seems like this is happening, unlike the rubbish about Rona, Barba, Holmes etc that won’t die. Almost time to start discussing where we should play him.
I think his best positions in order are

Fullback
Hooker
Running 5/8.

His strengths are his speed and running game. He also can throw a quality long pass as half of his older highlights are long balls to Thompson and Rona.
Most likely be fullback imo

Didn't Benji play some fullback in 2005?

Only release him if the other team pays a 2 million dollar release clause.
