What we need desperately are aggressive forwards, 2 props , 2nd rower and lock

He went well mate, we've got a very good signing here.
Was brilliant , ( has insane hands ) hopefully he doesn't go backwards with us....future Blues .
Pleasing signs. Rowdy and Matterson with Garner waiting in the wings.

Another decent three quarter line player and a hard nosed prop and we're looking good I reckon.
The centre we signed had a solid game in the prelim, replacing Mitchell.
The Roosters regard him as a bigger loss than Matterson. He'll be given first crack at left centre for us.

And a hooker. Apart from that our pack is good.

That sounds promising

So i guess they actually tried to keep him but with manu n Mitchell ahead of him he was no hope of playing NRL

Yes and no, we haven't signed him on big dollars, but he was also contracted to the chooks for next season. They saw he has a genuine opportunity to play FG at the Tigers and they didn't want to stand in his way of playing regular FG basically so let him go early. Make no mistake though, he's quite highly regarded at the chooks and he and Matterson will fit our culture well.

Roosters have run out of brown paper bags for 2019 signings.
I wish that were true Newtown, but I don't think they will ever run out out of them. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they make a play for Munster in the off season, as I think Cronk may now retire.
Uncle nick is expected to leave over 500 million in investments to the roosters when he retires from the board.
Half a billion? I don't think so.

Glad we have a nickname for him. I’ll be stuffed if I’m going to keep trying to remember how to spell that name for the next 2 years.
