I think both Matterson and Momi are a step in the right direction for the WTs...Strengthening our backrow and centres should be a priority and we are now achieving that...hopefully season 2019 will be our first finals appearance for quite awhile..


I have plenty of confidence in our coaching and admin staff to make things happen for us ,even if there are a couple of hurdles to get over ... ;)
Ive heard this positive hopefullness about new recruits year after year etc etc...I think Its going to take more than these two to get us into the eight and above, but yeah hopefully theyre an improvement on what weve lost...thats always easier to say on paper than the reality of 80 mins week in week out on the field
I am excited & hopeful as he is 15 years younger than players we usually recruit.

Well INK,I know we hear the same thing year after year,however we have solved our cap issues and Ivan is searching more for quality rather than quantity...Although we do need a couple of more NRL standard players,Im sure Ivan knows this and could surpise us with other players we may not know that he has in mind..
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

I like the idea of targeting players from good systems who are road blocked by a top notch player. The only concern is players from good systems don’t always adapt when they leave that system when they are not surrounded by quality.

Anyway I say smart signing and the way to go with our next couple of recruits

I reckon this guy ends up a second rower at some point.
Ahh, the thing they always say about centres.....
Haha so true.
It's a cliche now.

They say the two positions are pretty interchangeable...

Moses Suli? Future second rower.
Esan Masters? Future second rower.

Now we got this guy.... The commentators specifically said he is a specialist centre and that's why he replaced Latrell instead of moving Matterson or Aubuson there, who are second rowerws.

I even read on the Manly forum they want that dud Brad Parker to move to the second row.

It worked with Lawrence tho 🤷🏻‍♂️

Paul Momirovski - Contributor
I didn’t know it at the time but the corner in which I’d just scored a preliminary-final winning try for the Roosters, the last try ever scored at the Sydney Football Stadium, was right where my family was sitting.

My mum and dad, Svetlana and Rubin, were there in a group of about 25, watching us play the Rabbitohs for a spot in the grand final. It was the first time they’d seen me play in the NRL.

It took me a little while to find them after the game. I was so happy to share that moment with my family. My partner, Matilda, who has been such a huge support for me during injuries. My grandpa, Paul, who has barely missed a game since I was six. I ran straight over to my dad and he was in tears already.

I looked up and saw my brother, Alex, who’s not really an emotional guy – but he was crying. That moment was caught on TV and it was such a special one for me. It really hit home. He was just telling me how proud he was of me.

Mum and dad work so hard and never go on holidays, not for more than a week or so. Earlier this year, my brother and I had finally convinced them to go on a big Europe trip.



But as it turned out, they missed my debut: Round 18 against the Titans in July. I was one of three debutants to score a try in that win, along with Sean O’Sullivan and Poasa Faamausili. A little slice of history – it had never been done before. Mum and dad were a bit upset to miss it.



I thought that game would be it for me this year but then, Latrell Mitchell got suspended.



I was excited when I was given the nod to play that prelim. I was in a bit of shock but after that, there were no nerves. It was just pure excitement to get an opportunity again.



I knew that it was probably my last chance to wear a Roosters jersey – jersey No.20, as it turned out – given I was leaving the club for Wests Tigers. It turned out perfectly. I’m just grateful that Trent Robinson trusted me enough to play such a big game, in only the second match of my career.

At first i didnt think much of this signing. I think like most it looked like a depth signing.

The penny is starting to drop however, he was stuck behind Mitchell and Manu.

He comes across a little like a Curtis Scott type, that would be fantastic. Anything more will come down to coaching and playing weight.
Its an opinion!

This kid gets a starting spot in my opinion, all going well a full preseason with no injuries and he gets handed a centre position.

From the little I've seen of him and the fact that Robinson had the confidence to play him in such a big game and by the way he handled himself, he's our best option.

Give him the spot and tell him it's his to lose, give him the opportunity to own it from game 1.

I agree, but who is the coach who will tell him this, that is the question
Go hard or go home
