We got this update on him 3 weeks ago too…

Russell Packer (foot) is also progressing well as he increases his running load and responds well on-field as a result.

May have re-injured since?

I don’t wish injury on the bloke to medically retire him, despite him being woefully underwhelming.

Yea, seems to be the case. Thought it was his toe that was bothering him originally. I’m sure we’ll hear more about it soon enough.

Same issues as Keefy had ??

You’re exactly right. Supreme turf toe, bit of arthritis and dodgy ankle ligaments…

I really do feel for the guy, firstly, and secondly - even if just to take the early brunt and inspire a bit of a winner’s passion in Aloiai & Mikaele - hope he’s still able to punch out a full year

Med retirement isn’t on the cards at this VERY early stage. Rusty doesn’t wanna finish playing the game he loves and doctor’s today confirmed it’s not exactly life threatening. However, is a new injury and of a similar chronic nature that has seen many successful cases go through HQ.

Momirovski looks bigger , stronger, faster than last year. Love what I’m seeing of him in the 9’s. Don’t let him slip away!!!

He looked slower to me TBH. I wouldn’t have him starting the season due to that.

I agree. Just don’t get the hype.

Goal kicker.
Decent finisher.

That’s all there is to it.
Hes no Joey Manu.

Rankin, Alas… one that got away.
Same difference between the two!

I don’t think Momo is amazing but he is far better than Rankin.

Second person that I totally bowled with the sarcasm…
It probably is Chris McQueen I’m talking to aye?

Jebuz, thought after clarifying with Russ that I believe Momi is to Wests Tigers (in comparison with Joey M) still the best attacking finisher we’ve had since EVER… he is as good as Joey Manu was at the same age without the same skill set and brash attitude Or the same bunch of Roosters players alongside to inflate his value.

My point was that comparing Rankin to Momi is more akin to comparing Rankin AND Joseph Manu! Absolutely stupid. I’ll reiterate.

He’s a gem and as good as we’ve got!

All good…missed the sarcasm.

FYI, Momo is older than Manu, so can’t say he is as good as Manu at that age.

Manu > Momo

It is not even a debate. They have different characteristics. Manu is a gamebreaker and line breaking centre with footwork and speed. Momo is just that solid type player who defends well and takes hit ups. Shane Elford level.

I can see the Elford comparison but I’m hoping for a career more like E.T or Justin Hodges

The debate is surrounding the amount of people on this forum that are all but sold on allowing this bloke to walk out on us, albeit only for season 2020, because I believe that severely weakens

Yeah I see your point. The only argument against for it would be if Maguire sees the centre stocks as BJ, Mbye, Talau and then Momo 4th (Thats if we had a hooker(.

Definitely agree on that assessment. Still not at all sold on Mbye’s goal kicking efforts!

Injury Update: NRL Nines

Wests Tigers have today confirmed that Paul Momirovski will miss the next 2-3 weeks after sustaining an ankle injury during the sides NRL Nines meet with South-Sydney Rabbitohs.

After a full assessment from medical staff, it was confirmed Momirovski has sprained his left ankle during the second half of the match.

The centre will now begin his recovery with full support from medical staff.

It wasn’t too bad thankfully. Praying that this guy will hit the ground running this year. You guys don’t get it. Hooker pails in comparison to the need to ensure Paul stays around this club IMO

Point taken, I mean they’re definitely on a similar trajectory in my eyes … highlighted by recent rumours that back to back premiers coach Trent Robinson would love to get him back long term… then there’s the fact the Storm are actively pressing the NRL on this loan deal going ahead.

That’s a fair wrap on his perceived ‘talent’

I don’t see the ‘footy smarts’ either.

Give him a chance Gal, your avatar might be in store for a charge after a handful of games this yr.
