Not feeling so bad at missing Pangai now also I reckon the club won’t and can’t be held to ransom by Luciano. Very good signing well done Tigers haven’t been able to say that for some time.

Me reading the fan forum 1eye Eel?

They really hate Gutho. When your own supporters hate you, that says it all.

The Eels fans don’t hate Gutherson, but Moses is on the nose.

Let’s go at them again. Go in big for Paulo or D Brown

agree go hard for Paulo

Paulo would be great. I’d be hitting them hard while they are under pressure

Surely they can see that Moses is an arrogant fool who brings teams down with his attitude

This signing is like been told what your going to get for 18th birthday four months before your 17 birthday. Great news, but a long wait. I guess no matter how bad 2022 goes we have some hope in 23

True but the same thing happened with big Stef and he has proven the wait can be worth it

I would do anything to get him to come over early... I know Parra have a history of not letting players go early (Stef) but the difference was Stef hadn't played first grade when he signed and Papali'i is the best in his position... Please ball gods let this one come early... I'll sacrifice a few river eels if it helps...

Haven't been this happy about a signing in a very long time!

Confirmation Maguire has been well and truly neutered. Sheens is the new mouthpiece.

I must have missed something. What makes you say that? I thought Hartigan was the one paying unders. This bloke certainly won’t be on peanuts.

He's saying that coz Madge isn't quoted anywhere in the media release

Madge, like any coach is always quoted in the press release of a new player signing. It’s clear whose wearing the pants now.

Fair enough. I must admit I don’t really look for the coaches comments after a signing.

What a great signing! And the eels forum wrapping themselves up in knots suggesting it's only happened because we've overspent is delightful...

The truth is, the recruitment has been patient and well disciplined with spending. Kudos for the wait. I certainly lost faith at some point.

I suspect the Sheens gravitas might have been at play here too.

Perhaps I’d be more attentive if there were some quotes from some parra fans ?

Neither do I, but his absence was notable given the last months
