Apparently Shaun Johnson is exploring his options, would be the x factor we need in the halves. Handy goal kicker too. Maybe Maguire can talk him into it, assuming the Roosters haven't already signed him.
first Asian player in the NRL. would be great but doubt it
Eh?
Johnson Asian yeh?
But still there's been a few before, Craig wing, a couple part filo guys one was titans. Name escapes. Me. Now
I think Johnson's Mum is of Laotian descent, but i might be wrong.

I wouldn't want Johnson at all. He dominates against bad teams and gets dominated against decent ones. He's a myth.
Totally agree, Johnson is more suited to touch footy or ‘Dancing With The Stars’ .. he’s a good player but goes missing when the going gets tough. He shut up shop when TVS went off injured in the final.
I’m more than happy with our Brooks & Reynolds combo.

And even though it wasn't called the NRL in those days, don't forget Dennis Bendall who had an Asian background. One of my all time favourite players.

Alight of other days is Johnson - if he was ever switched on.
Agree Avo.

Is Tapau off contract? Any chance Madge could get him back?

He would be a very handy pickup for us. We seem to be a little light on in the forwards with Sue and Grant leaving.

Yep i'm not sure he ever was Russ. He's a player that can be electric against a bad team, but put any pressure on him and he disappears. He doesn't have the ability to turn a game around like the great halves do. Can't overcome adversity.

Yeah she is. Johnson also has a fully Laotian half-brother. They made a documentary about it a year or so ago, that I've not seen.

I think also ink is thinking about Matt Srama as the filo player from Titans. Payne Haas is part Filo too.

Yeah there's quite a number with at least part Asian heritage, especially amongst the Kiwis - Alex Chan I believe, also Mason Lino and RTS are part Chinese.

Kevin and Jharal Yow Yeh are part Chinese also - they were the first that came to mind.

Also Richard Chee Quee - joking.

Would love him, but I reckon Des would be very keen to keep him.

Both Taupau and JWH over the last few weeks in separate articles have been singing the praises of Maguire's coaching so you never know out of the current Kiwis squad who may be interested in joining the Tigers. One can only hope.

Yep, he left whilst Des was there.
