I don’t believe the issue has ever been his commitment to WTs. I hope he decides to come.

We really are a dumb club and deserve all we get if they sign this entitled princess. If Maguire wants this idiot his contract should be terminated immediately.

Anyone have any news on whether the slimey grubs will release  Stefano Utoikamanu for 2020??

No news but if the young fellow has the potential to lose significant $ because he is on a development contract at the Eels, you would believe there would be etiquette to release him unless our offer can be matched for a year.

@pawsandclaws1 he is on about $70k atm right??

I read $60k which is a huge difference. I can’t fathom how the Eels can retain him unless our offer can be matched for a year.

I can. He has a contract and they are holding him to it. Any club can do it when someone under contract starts whinging about mental health issues, coaching their son, or not liking their current role.

Making an example of one person sends a message to others under contract that may be looking elsewhere, much the same as releasing the first whinging player makes others realise that they are free to look around.

Who said he was whinging about mental health issues? Didn’t we release one of our players to the Raiders under similar circumstances who recently played for Great Britain? It is for financial reasons. Match our offer or release him. As for making an example of him, are they to discipline Matterson?

Everyone is jumping of the Dragons ship, I’d be throwing everything at Frizz. Lomax is a very unknown commodity and unproven, I’m sure to get him on board we would be paying overs. Another Jennings??

Lomax has been switched between wing, fullback and centre in his appearances in the NRL. He needs a coach who will allow him to settle in one position and develop an understanding with the players around him. He has the ability to break the line.

@balmain-boy said in Josh Addo Carr wants out at Melbourne:

Momirovski is a centre, and our best centre at that.

They would want someone like Talau. But i’d play hardball and not give him up.

Talau will progress and make the starting side when he earns it. Right now both Momo and Mbye are my starting centres.
If Jennings can regain his 2017 season form … and that’s always a possibility if his attitude /fitness improves markedly … than he will strongly challenge Nofoaluma and Thompson.
If Brad Abbey can earn a contract than that’s another good option.
That leaves our ongoing problem of fullback and yes we do need a modern day high class fullback in our spine and that one I can’t figure out … we may play patch up again and wait to see what emerges by mid year or for 2021 Season.

Abbey has had a knee reconstruction. We won’t see his best until next year. If he is in your calculations we are really in trouble in the backs. I would be looking at our junior wingers.

We need more than a fullback. Besides Talau, our centres are slow and lack any kind of penetration. We need at a minimum, a fullback and centre. Not run of the mill types eithers, top quality.

Is Talau that quick though

He is quick enough and a big body. He demonstrated in the Manly game he had enough zip to get into the clear. What he needs is really quick wingers and that has always been our Achilles heel since Korobeite and JAC left.

Mybe is too small for centre. He was a stop gap last year until we signed the real centre. We haven’t signed anyone yet!
