Mbye is not a halfback!
And changing a players position every year is a trait we need to let go.
We don’t need Dufty we need a centre and a good prop.
We have Mbye and Smith and Thompson who can play Fullback.
Well said.

Re: Zane Musgrove

Musgrave would be fine if the the two ahead of him play like starting props. I hope Maguire gets Packer and Matulino playing like the enforcers they were meant to be instead of the cameo appearances they delivered this year. You’re a hard task master, Packer & Matulino stood up this year in their f...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Pretty surprised by the hate for Benji. He's nowhere near the player he was but i'm not sure we have much better. Reynolds didn't exactly shoot the lights out when he played any significant minutes and Gamble's debut was painful to watch. The harsh reality is that we didn't win a game last year when...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I struggle to imagine Gamble ever becoming a better option than Benji. But i've been wrong plenty of times before. I wouldn't have Gamble to far behind Benji. Benji had a poor season and was as rocks and diamonds as always. Gamble is similar but 10 years younger. Gamble 6 is a natural playmaker whe...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

What do you mean? I mean you seem to be trying to make a case for keeping a guy who played his best football some 13 years ago. 14 years come next season. Oh cool I get you.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Reynolds is made of paper mache so we need a decent back up 5/8. And Benji is a gazillion bazillion times better than Gamble. Its 2018 yeah? 2019 when we kick off. . . What do you mean?

Wighton sentencing on 14 November. Let's see what happens as he is definitely a player we require in the centres.
Maybe he will be sentenced to play with Wests Tigers.
His crimes weren’t serious enough to warrant that punishment.

Napa = Origin player.

Rules him out with our fan base.

Plodders need only apply.
Mcqueen, Grant, plodders also played origin.
Yes but McQueen and Grant's brief origin careers were many years and many injuries ago. We don't like current origin players.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I think, (am happy for this to be noted and brought up at the end of the season) that this year was Cooks breakout year and best year in the NRL. He has limited talent apart from speed and coaches will have worked him out totally for 2019. He won't be half as good next year especially if Siebold le...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

IMO the 2 spots left need to be filled by: 1) a fast, hard running outside back and 2) a tough impact front rower who can break the line. If we could somehow move on Rochow or McQueen the next choice should be a big mobile back rower. I have been hoping patiently that we would hear some announcemen...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Farah will retire and Liddle hasn't shown enough to persist with him. Cook is one of the best hookers in the game. Enough waiting. Let's get the best players we can right now. There are exactly two ways to win in the NRL: - Have money to spend outside the cap. - Get value out of your cap money. Opt...
