Hi guys
I did get told by a board member that AD was going to be announced today, apologies as i dont think it will be happening given its now 1pm.
I had absolutely no mention of B J Leiluia so i am not sure if that is just media talk.

Still could supposedly announce a press conference for 3 or 3.30pm even as late as 2.00pm, would then maybe get it as a headline on the 5 o’clock news. If not then business as usual for us

I doubt either of those 2 warrant a press conference

Probably right, but I thought if they had 2 signings they might rather than do a press release.
Maybe they are waitIng to get both deals done before announcing, who knows

Have to be careful we leave a pathway for Tommy Talau. The last thing we want is for him to start getting restless

He is a five eighth who was moved to centre to get him in the side. Maybe he is our long term 6

He is a competent 1/2 nothing more nothing less !

That’s all you need, ask Chad Townsend.

Cooper Cronk just won 2 premierships and, by any statistic that is available to apply to a halfback, Brooks almost always covers Cronk, sometimes extremely convincingly. In fact Brooks in 2 years was only beaten by Cronk in kick metres and line engaged 2018.

Try assists 2019 (place), 2018
Brooks 16 (6), 10 (23)
Cronk 10 (27), 9 (32)

Line break assists 2019, 2018
Brooks 10 (22), 15 (5)
Cronk 8 (34), not in Top 50

Line engaged 2019, 2018
Brooks 197 (1), 82 (14)
Cronk 111 (23), 95 (9)

Kick metres
Brooks 7338 (5), 5446 (9)
Cronk 7094 (7), 8989 (2)

You don’t need to be a fanboy to see that Brooks has the basic capacity. So what is the difference, why does Cronk win premierships and Brooks does not? It cannot simply be “playing well in clutch moments” because Brooks hasn’t even had a single finals appearance to test himself by.

The difference is the rosters they have around them, very clearly. Brooks might throw hospitals to Lawrence, but I’d much rather be throwing hospitals to Boyd Corder or Angus Crichton.

The biggest differences can’t be quantified by statistics - having a ‘football brain’, leadership qualities, calmness under pressure and, of course, experience.

That is 100% bang on, stats don’t tell the whole story, so a half with great stats, maybe not a leader or great under pressure

So much for us being the preferred destination for JAC.

Another good player who doesn’t want to come here, same old song

Brooks’ defense was outstanding last season too - you can tell Garner gave him a lot of confidence. Some shots he put on bigger men were impressive, he’ll kick on I’ve no doubts

Brooks gave Garner confidence more like…snapped Burgi like a twig…

Still can’t ice a game like chee Kam can

Your on ice if you think that’s right lol

The man love you both have for Brooks and MCK is embarrassing

Get behind the true leader of our club for the future Tom "Terrific " Mikaele

Not point getting attached to Mikaele as he has roosters written all over him once Hargreaves goes

Chee Kam da man

Ha wouldn’t that just suck big time.

I’m already not far off torching Bondi Leagues Club for Tedesco.

Now that we appear to have our financial position on an even keel and we’re not paying overs for players we may just may be able to hold on to those we want to

Ahhhh some common sense seeping in…but dont forget…NOONE WANTS TO COME HERE…waawaa…boohoo

Until they sign someone who is sought after, I will agree we can’t sign a decent rep quality player.

News is AJ wants to see out his contract with Souths and is determined to stay put. Let’s see how that works out for him. On the other hand Marwene Hiroti is very keen. He’s on a train and trial with the Sharks but his preference is the Tigers, most likely more opportunities.

More to the point, let’s see how that works out for Souths and their salary cap. Something (or someone) must have to give.

Is there a time limit by which Souths have to sort out their salary cap situation for 2020?

Technically they can’t register a contract that will see the cap exceeded. So if NRL has registered it they are saying they are cap compliant for 2020 with latrell. Now if they want arrow that probably changes things

although they now have Mitchell i think they are still chasing an Arrow and a Fox.Will be even more interesting how they manage that.

Rusty will sort it, and the NRL will sign off on it, mean while we are chasing shadows

@Russell said in Our 1 to 5...:

@Sart0ri said in Our 1 to 5...:

1 Moses Mbye - Best fullback we currently have. Good ballplayer and good support player
2 Corey Thompson - Great finisher
> 3 Robert Jennings - Give him a chance at his preferred position, should be making lots of early tackle hit ups

JOKING*

4 Paul Momirovski - Best centre we have
5 David Nofoaluma - Good finisher, makes lots of early tackle hit ups

9 Walters - hopefully he has been training to be an 80min dummy half. Mbye to cover if injured during a game.
14 Talau - give him at least 20min each game as a loose forward, centre or wing until he is ready to start

I would rather Robert Jennings earn his place in CC but we are very short on centres

Who is this Joe King Russ, is he any good

Latrell locked in at Souths,jus waiting on Russel to sort out third party

Russel isn’t allowed to sort 3rd party deals, he owns the club, not that it bothered him in the past
