Signings, Suggestions & Rumours Discussion

🤣 wow @Lauren and great to see Herman Tofaeono play in Cup today, I think he has a big future with us too! A tank with legs like tree trunks!
We'd want to get Tofaeono on a Dev contract for next year. Thing is with him, faagautand Kit all being under 6 foot it's unlikely we'd be able to have more than one of these nuggets on the field at the same time
 
Gutsy win yesterday channeling the spirit of the Tigers and the Magpies. Hopefully we have our youngsters contracted because the vultures will be circling. There is a real dearth of talent in the NRL and a player like Jordan Miller is all raw talent and ability. He hasn't had that knocked out of him by coaches who like the robotic style of football. Young Mason had a great game, he did what the team needed him to do and did it well.

Yep...need to put him on a development contract and give him a pre-season with the NRL squad. Definitely someone we want to keep for now and see how he progresses!
 
Adam too may just accept playing at 31 like Will Smith had.

Not a bad option for him or us... he stays at reserve half for 300k and hangs with the team.

if the plan is for AD to play in the halves … then I would be happy to let him go .. I see Living Large’s manager crying about too many halves at the club blocking his path …. Put him in reserve grade next season… looks to be physical enough ..and of course there will be Bud there already … we are all good for halves
 
Bula is a legend! We don’t want any other full back.

I was a massive Bula fan but he seems to just fall into tackles and makes very little PCM in my opinion. Doesn’t seem to want to break the line.

He is a weapon do not get me wrong but I don’t know if FB is his position.

Maybe he will get more comfortable with his attacking in the future and I wouldn’t be upset if we persist with him.

His defence and positioning in D is very good. Just needs to get his attack right and he will be a gun.

Might make a phenomenal centre/winger if he is open to trying it out.

His play reminds me a little bit of Dugan back in his day.

Is he a weapon though?
I really don't expect him to make a break or do anything special to turn a game anymore.
 
I think talagi would be a great signing

How far off is onitoni large? Will he play centre?
Or play onitoni Large next week if we could .. I genuinely think he could handle it already, or even a go on the wing ,, so fast , and Ashton, mate , that kid Is something else .. Ashton will play for Australia, you can Bookmark this !

Luai will make a huge difference to Bula's attacking game. Really, the opposition target him because they know he is one of our few attacking options.
 
Parra Eels set to loose young gun to the West Tigers
Blaize Talagi is set to sign a 3 year deal with Wests Tigers , The Tigers have secured the young gun after Benji spoke with him last week at his home ,
The Tigers have now secured
Luai , Turuva , Talagi and South’s Tallis Duncan , there are also reports Reagan Campbell Gillard is set to leave the eels and join Benji at the Tigers as well for the 2025 season

Old school I know but the inside centre position is underrated and Large could play the role. Having a player like large who has the size, blinding pace, defence, kicking and passing game to a side lacking offensive options would be dynamic.

If this has legs we are in for a very good year in 2025. I know we have been in talks with Duncan since Richo came on board
