Latest story (rumour) I just saw on Zerotackle is Johnston and Douehi to Storm for Addo-Carr.

Got the same feeling I had for LM about JAC, he’ll end up at Souths too.

That’s all she wrote for me and the NRL if that does happen.

I am still stunned Doueihi is on 500K. There is NO way Souths are cap compliant if he’s on something that insane when they have Gagai, AJ, Walker, Reynolds etc etc etc

Also forgot they brought back Bryson Goodwin. Just collecting backs…

Who said Douehi is on 500 k

Article posted a few pages back. True or not, I don’t know, but that’s where that came from.

Stefano Utoikamanu. Adam Douhei will be the next two signed. We will have one spot left for a pre June 30 move. I would assume some final year players may be moved on before June 30 ET, Eisenhuth, Jennings, McQueen. Our roster management has been good Douhei will be a good 6 when Benji retires.

You seem pretty confident and have had reliable news in the past

So are you confident in your source?

Yes. But they are outside Tigers control. Rabbits (100k chip in) Eels (Stefano) have to play ball. It would likely also take Storm (Tino), Titans (Arrow) releasing players. I’m told we are out on JAC also or more specifically he’s not considering us.

Thanks for the info mate.

Really disappointed about JAC if true. Genuinely believed his love for the club and his desire of returning.

This is where the current system does not work… The NRL need to step in and assist or scrap the rule that you can sign a player for the year after… Such a grey area that needs addressing and surprised the Players Union has not spoke to NRL about it.

Totally agree. What’s the point in that?

Fans find it hard to support that player knowing he’s leaving, player finds it hard to keep focus and will constantly be under scrutiny whilst his new club pray he doesn’t seriously injure himself.

Hate it.

Already a team with a lot of reps, yet they’re able to add two top quality players in one off-season. I know Arrow isn’t for this season (yet), but they can fit him in.

We haven’t been able to do that in about a decade.

How? Why? NRL is really becoming more and more difficult to follow if you’re not a fan of the favourites.

Hate the argument that he’s better than what we got when what we have is so average.

AJ will get outmuscled every time and we’d all be filthy, and won’t be setting up his outside men at all. Even Thompson can create more with his tackle breaking ability. Only area of fullback AJ is better is defensively (even that, barely).

Also, Nofo is grossly underrated.

But if kinda fast and can chase a kick is all we want…

AJ the souths winger shopped to Gold Coast they said No

Lol

Cause he’s garbage

83 tries from 123 games. if you think he’s garbage i’d hate to think what you thought of our wingers.

Well lets compare him to one of our wingers.

AJ, at Souffs has scored 83 from 123, a strike rate of 67%.

Robert Jennings, at Souffs, scored 24 from 34, a strike rate of 70%.

Robert Jennings, at Tigers Scored 6 from 18, a strike rate of 33%.

For mine that parallel is strong. I reckon Johnston would have about the same contribution as RJ and less than CT.

Jennings was out of shape and sluggish all year. He also played in the centres for a time. Never looked settled. I think RJ will be better this year.

Regardless, I think AJ would be good pickup either at fullback or wing. Doesn’t look like he’s coming though so we won’t find out.

Why is AJ not coming to Tigers?

Sorry no inside info, but was reported by someone (maybe DT) and Richardson said yesterday they can fit in Arrow too without moving anyone on.

That alone just blows my mind…
NRL need to take a good hard look at their roster and if they can fit Arrow in this year as well without letting someone go there is a serious problem.

Just let this list below sink in of 10+ rep players they have
ARROW, Jai
BURGESS, Thomas
COOK, Damien
DOUEIHI, Adam
GAGAI, Dane
GRAHAM, Campbell
JOHNSTON, Alex
LOWE, Ethan
MITCHELL, Latrell
MURRAY, Cameron
REYNOLDS, Adam
ROBERTS, James
WALKER, Cody

You can only laugh…

There will definitely be fall out at Souths, maybe not before the season starts - but there will be off-field distractions for them all year around who goes to keep LM.

Really looking forward to that.
