The word I have once removed from a former great at the Roosters is that Matterson, Napa and maybe JWH are being moved on to make way for Crichton who is already coming and there is a very big play to get TPJ away from the Broncs. The back up position for them is apparently Tapau
So sounds like Marty is definitely in the market, hopefully we are considering him and maybe it's best for us that the Roosters do get TPJ
Would take JWH if he is being moved on, goes hard and has some mongrel.
Four or five years ago maybe. Nowadays he's a poor man's Russell Packer.
Much rather JWH than Packer to be fair....at least JWH runs more than 70m per game

Yep me too, he still goes good, imo. I'd be happy with both in our team though.

JWH can be a loose cannon at times as well

JWH can single handedly destroy packs and great defender. He’s slowed down and too similar to Packer. He’s improve our pack massively though but there should be cheaper options to get a solid prop.

I think Packer was chosen for leadership, I know he’s a prop and probably didn’t have his best season, but In the First 5 rounds before the leg injury against the storm I thought he played pretty hard and had an impact up until that point.

Matterson looks the goods. He’ll slot into a starting spot for us no probs.

Whilst I have mainly seen him at centre, pretty sure that he started and played in the middle against WT in round one and played well.

Versatile forward can play middle, edge or 5/8. Valuable player for a battling club like us.

Was solid without being a standout.
A big lad, for sure. Slightly off topic, but how is Radley's work rate? Sensational.

Usually I’d be skeptical of a kid who looks good in a Roosters side because it would be the easiest job in the world. But Connor Watson this year made me rethink that. He was great for the Knights. I guess uncle Nick only buys the best, and that includes the juniors he poaches.

Great we are poaching players from the Roosters.

If we can bring JWH as well our front row will look very good.

Yeah, I'd love JWH for 2 years.
