    STORM PLAN FOR LIFE AFTER SLATER


    Ryan Papenhuyzen © has signed with the Storm.
    MELBOURNE have begun planning for life after Billy Slater by signing boom Wests Tigers fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen to a long-term deal from next season. No less than six clubs were chasing his services.

    The move could point to signs the Tigers are closing in on re-signing in-form fullback James Tedesco, having secured Moses Suli on a $1.3 million three-year deal.

    Papenhuyzen is considered one of the best prospects in the Holden Cup. A noted speedster, he is just three centimetres taller than Slater and only 76kg so he will need to bulk up. The 18-year-old Tigers junior won the Harold Matthews award for best player in the under-16s competition and has also represented the Australian Schoolboys and NSW at under-16 and under-18 level.

    Pretty disappointing tbh.



  • Well you can’t keep them all sadly. And yes, that’s a very good sign re-Tedesco.



  • Also how good is “in-form fullback James Tedesco”

    Yeah DT, he’s in good form. Way to describe the best fullback in the game.

    Yep disappointing.



  • Well sometimes you have to let a good player go so you can keep an even better player.

    e.g. TMM & Austin or Moses


  • Banned

    Disapointing of course but he’s not gonna play fullback here and at 76kg we couldn’t put him on the wing or in the centres.

    Good luck to him



  • If it means we keep all 5 of our superstars no one will really care

    Again just potential at this stage , a long way from being a proven NRL superstar



  • Can’t hang on to them all but yeah, all signs point towards Teddy staying which is more more important at this stage.

    Very disappointing and not good enough by management. If we are a so called development club, why do we let one of our best go?

    Because we have other options in the same position Paws who look far closer to being ready

    Do you always look for reasons to have a potshot at Taylor and Go

    Can we now add Kelly Egan to the list ….

    Because we need money to keep a player in the same position who has shown he is one of the best in the actual NRL, not just juniors? Do you support any decisions made by the club?



  • MELBOURNE have begun planning for life after Billy Slater by signing boom Wests Tigers fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen to a long-term deal from next season

    How long term DT?



  • Can’t keep them all boys and let’s face it, you can’t prioritise him over anyone in our squad - yes of course except for Rankin and Lovett.

    But if losing him let’s us contribute to retaining one of the big 4, he was worth the sacrifice.



  • I don’t support poor decisions and this is a very poor decision. Tedesco is one knee injury away from being finished and we should have a succession plan in place. Apparently management do not agree.



  • Good luck to the young man….He has earned his promotion… :sign:
