Wondering what people's thoughts on him are ??

I think he is underrated , good defensively , very experienced and only 29

Good size , strong ,good hands

Off contract at season's end , if you got him at the right price .....

In my opinion it would be worth the inquiry , reckon he has the IC stamp all over him

Didn't realise he was only 29 thought he was much older. Definitely a type of player IC would like as you've mentioned.
No more plodders!

Good player but he doesn’t really add much different to what we already have. We need to upgrade our players not replace with similar type players.

He goes alright. At least he has some height! Our whole backline is comprised of short arses :lol:

big centre, finals experience, not a lot of money. If Kev or Marsters go down ..we don’t have much depth in the centres

We need speed ,size and youth. We have old campaigners coming out our nose

As others have correctly articulated old, slow and ineffective to what we require.

We need speed and size in our back line.

Carr was a huge loss.

I would have thought by now many would have worked out that speed on the flanks is important

I'm happy for my centres to be able to do the basics well

Defend , pass well , strong in body , good size , reasonable speed

I look at the centres in the last 20 years , the real standouts biggest strength was defence , speed was a bonus

Give me a Gidley , Mick Devere or a Chris Johns any day of the week , the others may have been better but the price tag was at least realistic

With discussions happening this week in regards to reducing the interchange to 6 next year (IC is on the panel), I would rather Kev.

I couldn't go past Paul Whatuira, quick great defender, one of my fav WT players.

If Latrell Mitchell is available we should go all out to get him if the Rorters dont improve there could be a number of disillusioned players in there group if we are unsuccessfull at least we can put further pressure on their Sombrero

Ivan Cleary is on the panel which is discussing whether the interchange will be reduced from 8 interchanges to 6 interchanges from next year and he would prefer Kevvy over Linnett in the centres is they way I read it..

Our expectations and standards have dropped to an all-time low.
