After watching his last two games on ISP-

- some very very poor misses in defence
- doesn’t go looking for work (dirty yards)

Depth signing at best imo. I hope he came cheap.
I was going to mention this last week... not very impressed with this signing , the Magpies Center played all over him , it seems the plodder signing mentally continues.
The only thing I'll say is 1-2 games isn't a sufficient summary of what a player can offer.

Everyone's banging on about Jazz Tevaga in the other signing thread, driven largely, it appears, from his performance in the Warrior's loss on the weekend.
One is playing an NRL final, the elite top level of his sport.

The other is playing in a league full of guys who will never cut it.
Well that's unequivocal then - if you play in a finals team you are a great player and if you play ISP you will never have a first grade career. Kind of makes you wonder why anyone ever plays reggies if you are no chance of ever being a legitimate first grader. Esp if you are the over-the-hill age of 22.

But that wasn't my point anyway, my point was I have not seen Tevaga feature in any serious discussion on this forum until he plays one decent game for Warriors, then suddenly people want to sign him. Goldfish mentality.

He is like alot of our other signings. He has potential and could be solid. Buy a few low with upside and hope a couple pan out.

To me he is a twal like signing looks good has played junior rep and may develop if not no biggie if so awesome

Look i agree with you too many people want the latest toy. They constantly over rate the last guy to make a splash and are quick to point out the flaws in others.

However performing well in a high pressure situation like an NRL final is massive jump up from going along ok in State Cup. it shows you can handle the pressure, it shows you are someone with a bit of something about you.

Its the thing that separates the guys who never kick on and the guys who go on to be household names.

Not everyone who posts about the new guy on the block are idiots with a goldfish mentality, some just like players who have shown they can cut over "potential"
Its an opinion!

No more Nuffies
How are you gonna roster your ISP side w/o nuffies?
Has he been signed strictly for isp though ?

That’s the question!
When Cory Thompson was signed everyone thought that he was signed as a ISP nuffies.
Same as Maha Finau.
You never know how PM is going to turn out until he’s giving a chance.

Thompson and Fonua had both played a few years of NRL and few years of ESL. They were somewhat known quantities at the highest level. Mom has only ever played reserve grade and 1 first grade appearance. He's very much an unknown quantity

I never thought Thompson or Fonua were going to be signed up to play Reggie’s !
Both had and have household names and both were proven first graders for there previous NRL clubs before signing with us !

Thompson played in the 2014 grandfinal against Souths marking Lote Tuquiri.
Only missed 2-3 games that season.
And Fonua made the super league dream team twice.
They both had a lot less to prove than This young fella, at least we had an idea of the way they played the game, hopefully the young bloke has got a good head on his shoulders and he’s hungry for a spot.

I think the point Bathurst is making is not too many on here had Thommo & Mahe in their starting side at the start of the year
The popular theme was;
1 Lolo
2 Nofo
3 Suli
4 Milne
5 Kev

Momo is jnr development...all players start somewhere, that said if we are starting next year with him in the 13 thats a bit of a concern for mine

I thought Momirovski was 22 or 23 or something past the junior development stage...ISP for depth or 1st grade as we have very little in the way of players who play his position....

I think it's a good signing myself...

Well Mom won't have to be that great to be better than Fonua - one good game in a season does not cut it for me.

Yeah, not my cup of tea either. See him as backup and would rather have kept Kev who covers fullback as well. Hopefully the new bloke is better than both.

I wonder what Paul Momirovski would have said if he was asked at the start of the year did he think that he would have at least 6 pages written about him on an NRL Forum ??

I’d be more interested in knowing what Tedesco said to him when told he was thinking of signing with the us.

Senior development then?

Probably told him he would fit in perfectly with the club mantra
