Arrow is a solidi forward. We have enough of those but LL is a genuine gamebreaker and the type of strike forward we require. Arrow is not worth the money being suggested.
I think his value to Souths is different than to us. I would say that Uncle Wayne sees a real void in reliable forwards for Souths . Murray is amazing at the quick play the ball , but is a little lite , and with the Burgess bros gone , that pack could go from a strength to a weakness, especially if teams figure out how to limit Murray.
We on the other hand , have for a long time had reliable , honest forwards . A few will get you 100m most games , but not much else.
To us he’s just a very good front rower .
We needed , a wrecking ball or 2 . So the value for an unfit , leilua type , is much higher to us .
Because it’s seen as a deficiency in our system.
I believe this is why Arrow was considered a luxury to our management
Agree on the Grubbitohs pack. To add to that, it’s hard to think that Cook will be as effective playing off the weakened pack they presently have. I can’t see them having the consistent punch and quick play the balls (with the exception of Murray) that he is accustomed to. As you say, Luciano provides our pack with a different dimension in attack compared to the honest toilers we have. Our pack would also greatly benefit from either one of our young blokes (Mikaele/Stefano) or a yet to be purchased prop that can play in the style of a JWH enforcer type.
I don’t know why Arrow would trust Bennett
Bennett himself keeps who he wants to keep and lets go who he wants to let go
Bennett didn’t rate Arrow at Brisbane high enough for him to keep him …but now he does …
What happens when David Fifita arrives …oops sorry Jai …WT’s are interested
