Why we continuing with him in NYC? Send him to RMC and give another kid a chance

Papenhuyzen will now be Melbourne's to develop as Slater's replacement. Who do we have now?

His defence and ability under the high ball are not good enough.

He would've been years off anyway, not a solution for next year.

I'll be surprised if he plays FG. At the same age he's not in Tedesco's class.

:?: why did we let Storm sign Ryan Papenhuyzen go? Isnt he a fullback? Must be ok if they wanted him.

We had Tedesco at the time, is probably the reason.

Paps is an exciting talent but probably hasnt developed (both physically and in terms of his game) as many hoped.

Wont be ready for firsts for a while.

Let paps go to Melbourne for a couple of years to develop then sign him if he turns out okay.

You have absolutely no idea how much money was involved in the deal and yet you're prepared to label this a "very poor decision" by management. You're just a management hating muppet.
Bellamy is a highly successful coach with an eye for talent. If a large offer has been made he has a good reason for making it. Apparently our mob have difficulty understanding this, but when the club is overflowing with quality outside backs such as Rankin, Hunt and Kev N some may be more forgiving,
This is very disappointing to lose such a promising junior. You hit the nail on the head as we are very light on outside backs. We have so much money wasted in rankin, kev, hunt and these guys are just not first grade material. Being a youngster he doesnt have to play fullback, he can be started on the wing and transitioned into fullback in fhe future. We really need another centre and a speedy winger. We had one but the storm took him aswell.
None of those players are signed for next year or beyond so they had nothing to do with this decision. We are not "wasting" any money on them next year. Melbourne offered him an opportunity and a clear path to a first grade spot in his preferred position. We were not in a position to do that because we are clearly looking to invest heavily in Tedesco. Not everything is a bloody failure on the part of the club...

ANYmoney spent on those three is wasted,

His body can't stand up to Holden cup at the moment, how would he go in the NRL. Surely one of the forum members has a talented 7yo we could send out to play

Why is it that we only hear about these "future stars" only once they sign elsewhere?

so, you form an opinion after watching this bloke once? Tell us, what are your credentials?
You must be a better judge than Bellamy, Ponissi & the Melbourne recruitment team!

Keyboard warrior, that's what you are

I've seen him in 2 games, and a strong wind would blow him over.
Needs about 2 more years to develop his body before he is anywhere near ready for NRL.

They probably got him cheap and we aren't prepared to wait 2 or so years for him to develop into a maybe NRL standard... no big loss imo

I've seen him in more than 2 games and am very confident he won't come back to haunt us.
