I know you guys don’t rate the mole but there is report from him saying tigers want Marika back. Surely not. JAC much better prospect and considering our so called salary cap mess cheaper as well. Hope its just more garbage reporting but if was is to happen it would be proof that this club has no idea. If we could afford to buy Marika ($360?) than obviously we could afford JAC ( tiger torch listed $120k 1st year than $180k 2nd year offer from storm but would stay at a similar offer from tigers) and put the rest towards other quality signings or fighting off rivals from getting Moses Suli.
Marika’s hands seem to have improved a lot. His punch bringing the ball back from kicks is great. JAC, although I’ve not seen him play, wouldn’t have that same benefit I wouldn’t think. Different types of players and that’s where balancing a team comes into play. What do we need and what do we want for what we can afford?
Just from watching the storm game i think JAC has loads more to offer in his all round game. Marika i think has a union background where JAC a league background. He is fast elusive loves getting involved has a passion for playing with the tiger’s and with some experience could be anything. It’s a shame our cap is in such a shambles cos we probably would be seeing a lot more of him if it wasn’t
