How everyone’s feeling after reading tonight’s signing saga, phew!
Same as always.
Seems way to much extreme feelings on here about signing JAC.
Hope we still land him but he wont be our saviour for next year that will raise us 5 spots.
If H Grant is out go for Gutho for fb if they try to push him to centre re Bevan French
Interested to know who the centres will be for next year,BJ was poor in his first year,Mbye not much better,Talau was in and out of the team,Aj has been used on the wing,Hoffman played 1 game and was highly rated by Madge,Momirovski possibly cOming back,William Kei getting a top 30 or development spot,who does Madge run with?
I think it will be BJ and Doueihi
Leilua is lazy and will not tackle. An ISP cup position but even then he is blocking the pathway of a younger player. Doueihi at 5/8
BJ is going to want to be on fire from the outset of 2021 or Madge will have him in ISP bloody quick.
Totally agree with that … however I do believe that we didnt use him enough last season. BJ is a line busting outside back that should be used as a strike weapon close to try line. It take 2 or 3 defenders to stop him and if the defence does put 2 or 3 defenders in on him, he will either break the line, … or get held up by the 3 defenders, but then be able to give an off load to an unmarked winger … !!
He may be a line buster but his defence in the most crucial position is woeful. He’s 28 now so it is most unlikely he will improve. Our issue is defence. We cannot afford to carry him especially with Nofoaluma outside. It is our Achilles heel and our defence won’t improve until we put a player in the position who can defend.
Funny thing is i don’t think Madge would of hired him if it was a attitude thing.
Don’t want to sound mean but think it might be an issue of footy smarts.
Hopefully without benji next to him will improve as well
Can we once and for all eradicate the words ‘ball playing lock’ from rugby league
This isn’t 1995
ball playing lock is code for a forward that can pass.
Even twal passed it in the last game, its not rocket science.
We need go forward not half backs at 13
Think he is 100% good enough to be in the train on team with NSW.
I think he’s hampered by
- been a underperforming team
- having a few poor defensive friends around him (BJ, Benj) makes his defense appear worse then it would be in a functional defensive unit
I’m looking to get a hold of a signed 2020 jersey.
I buy and frame one for each of my kids from the year they are born.
We just had our 3rd little one, but I am struggling to locate one, probably due to covid.
Does anyone know if the club might be able to assist?
