Happy for the swap. I hope Momo hasn’t cost much above the minimum, as at the moment he sits as our 4th choice centre, and I disagree with a lot on here that he is versatile enough for wing or fullback.
He’s our second choice centre. But the difference between him and Mbye isn’t a lot.
The difference between Grant and Walters is significant
In Madges mind I think he has BJ and Mbye starting. I would hope in a year Talau has developed and would be 3. Which to me has Momo at 4 by the time he comes back. We will see. But I agree, there is not a huge difference in them all (other than BJ), but we wouldnt want all 4 fighting for centre spots on medium sized coin etc
Great post, sums it up. Talau in for BJ when the time’s right, maybe sooner, Mbye contract will expire and by then I’d say Momi would be seeing lots more regular first grade at his expense.
NB: only see Mbye leaving the club if Walters doesn’t work out for utility value,
Or if AD completely bombs at fullback (unlikely)
Talau more likely to replace M’Bye in a season or two, Hoffman will be ready to replace BJ by the time Joey’s contract runs out. M’Bye will struggle to find a spot in the 17 in a couple of seasons time you would think.
Croker signing a four year deal with raiders. Cotric still available. Can play centre or wing and is quality.
Sign him and Gulre to make the transition to Sydney less hard on em.
Set em up and watch the points pile up.
both Cotric and Simonsson are skilful enough to play at the back, don’t understand why either of them would be happy stuck on a sideline when they could be at the back. something has to give
The whisper is Matherson Johns and Kane Bradley will be the right edge after round 6 or 7, Doueihi fullback with the Momo - Grant swap a done deal. All three quarters over six foot two and 100 kilos except Nofo.
neither of them are ready for grade. they’re gonna need to make short work of cup footy to be even considered for the squad of 21
stoked with the forward pack, Madge has rewarded the pre-season performers and demoted the ones that didn’t play to their abilities. give Doueihi some time to settle in, Thompson was the incumbent and had plenty of time at the back from November, I think it’s only fair he starts the season there.
