Boyd, Paulo, Papalli and Whitehead any of them would be nice

Along with Cortic and Rapana

Canberra has loads of talent imo

Seems unlikely. We have plenty of options and plenty of cap tied up in halves and utilities and he's not an obvious upgrade.

Not too sure mate...

Marshall is likely to retire at the end of this year so he might be the kind of player to keep the whole 1-7 & 9 on notice

Unless the plan is to play him fullback. He’s a good ball runner. Even though he’s predictable, he still is hard to handle. He’s a lousy 6 because he refuses to pass. At fullback he could have a licence to run.

I think he would be an upgrade on Tui at fullback. Thats about the only positive i have to say on him joining our squad
Its an opinion!

I've thought he would be a better FB then FE at the Raiders and he did play60 minutes at FB with us and made 200 meters - suits his running game and his play to be playing at FB imo.

He could be turned into a reasonable all rounder.
Has lots of positives. Has good attitude and very competitive.
He was touted as possible SOO player while back.
As long as we don’t break the bank... yes from me.

I quite like "The Show and Go man". If Ivan can get his defence right. He can tackle but comes out of the line too much.

He always played well for us and is a genuine utility. I'd like him back.
