@Newtown said in Signing Suggestions & Rumours:

No.1 Priority at least one first grade quality player with a good goal kicking record.

And for some reason it wasn’t a concern for JT, Ivan or Madge. It’s killed us for years and really has to be a priority.

I think I was one of the first to say Doueihi isn’t a fullback and would be much better suited at centre as he defs deserves to be somewhere starting that’s for sure

However, I’m able to allow him the time to try and reinvent himself and make that fullback position his tbh - he does seem to be getting better as each week comes by and you never know he may add some pace on him with some sprinting coaches

But we should 100% be at least scouting some specialist fullbacks who have that pace and X factor - someone with the ability to create plays and score points imo

His only issue is that he’s slow. He’s got good ball playing, good defence and good hands. We can’t expect him to run the length of the field, if he’s gonna score it’ll be close to the line using hi strength.

If we sign a good fullback happy to move him to 5/8 but that’s only if it’s a quality consistent fullback, not worth moving him there for a dud

His other qualities more than make up for his lack of pace. He’s an excellent fullback.

Give Walters the no7, can’t be any worse than the underachiever Brooks.

We also need a no1, Dooee isn’t a bad player but he’s just not a 1, adds very little in attack.
Imo he’s a 3,4.
We need some speed, we need an excitement machine at the back, we’ve got a sloth.

Garner needs a rocket, he’s nowhere near the player he was last year, gone backwards.

This is the second post I have read of yours - saying AD is not a full back and that he is too slow. Fair enough that is your opinion.

However who is the replacement, all well and good saying no but I want to know who gets the yes.

Shift Nofoaluma to the 1

Watching Doohey is like watching an old bloke in the park doing Yoga

Doohey isn’t a fullback , he’s a centre

Sorry Hobbo I can’t agree at all there. Nofoaluma would be even worse than Thompson was.

AD is good defensively (Nofo isn’t), rarely makes an error (Nofo does) and has a passing game (Nofo doesn’t). Nofo also isn’t a speedster.

Nofo would be a disaster there imo.

Thinking about it more I’d be keeping Lawrence at centre and putting Talau wing if he’s fit.

I’ve bagged on Lawrence for years but he was good last night.

Of the current players available to play, I’d give captaincy to Reynolds, but his hanging the leg out on Graham puts him in the naughty corner. If it wasn’t for that incident, he communicates with the refs quite a bit.
So, I’d then pick Aloiai. I reckon he’s got it in him to be a leader for the future. I’d say Grant, but we don’t know what his future is after this year.

Seriously? Reynolds? He’d be the last one I’d choose. When are people going to see past his “energizer bunny” antics and realise he is a very, very ordinary player?

Being captain ain’t always about how good you play on the field. There’s a lot of things that are more important for a captain

Reynolds is a leader and a motivator. He may not be the best player, but his other attributes have the ability to lift a team. Mbye basically runs out of the tunnel first and that’s about it.

Yeah there’s plenty of reason he could be a good captain. I’ve always liked the captain being in the spine, I see Doueihi as a future captain and I think madge does too

What position does he play as captain. Can’t see him as long term fullback.

I like him at fullback and he will only get better. He honestly has the safest hands in the NRL some of his pickups are crazy. He’s got decent ball skills too, just wish he was a little faster but close to the line he’s hard to stop

Some people have been bagging him out since he joined. He’s been one of our best all year.

Many players have improved under Madge (Aloiai, Ll, Mikaele to name a few) but Brooks and Mbye appear to have regressed.

I’m not a Brooks basher but our halves are our Achilles heel. When Reynolds and brooks can make benji look good then something is not right. Kicking game is horrendous, no organisation. We will feel the affects of Ivan Cleary at this club for years to come. He pulled the Moses contract and signed brooks. While one has blossomed the other still hasn’t played a game better then his debut. Reynolds has energy and grunt, but pretty much nothing else. I can see hope for our forwards and our backs but our halves unfortunately Madge has inherited something that can’t be fixed.

Didn’t Madge re-sign Brooks? In fact hasn’t Madge signed/re-signed >75% of our top 17?

Yeah go figure

Even Doohey is on $400k

He’s easy worth that imo.

But he’s not even a fullback .
Last night although good under the Ball he’s a sloth …

Disagree, I think he’s an excellent fullback.

@JoshColeman99 said in Mbye:

Mbye is on crazy money and that’s why so many people hate on him. If he was on 400k a season he would get so much less flack every week but good old Ivan have to give him crazy money.

He’s on way too much money and played awful last night but he’s a good player overall. Usually he’s very good defensively.
