@Spud_Murphy Now the dogs might be back in play which concerns me again. I truly believe we need to speed up this recruitment process as the player can changed his mind at the last min… E.g. Dogs had Koroisau locked in until Ivan called him at the last min and signed him… We cannot afford to sit back and pretend we are doing everything on our terms as we will get burnt again… I have a gut feeling Mitchell will agree but than a big club will somehow find money and poach him at the line… people will say be positive about it but that’s hard when we have had nothing for years… Even the so called WTF signing that was going to be announce like 3 weeks ago has not come through… Time to pull the finger out
Fingers crossed we might already have our targets locked in, just not announced as of yet
You know what, I am of the opinion that if we sign an international premiership player on the money reported is a massive shot in the arm for the club.
We have always struggled with signing players at the rite price but for what we allegedly would get him for is a steal.
The bloke tore us to bits this year, I would rather him be with us then against us.
Get it done tigers.
Johnson was only 22 when Madge left Souths - Madge gave him his debut and he played 81 games for 73 tries under Madge at Souths. Anyone who think we have a winger of that ability to score points in our current team is kidding themselves. At fullback his record says he scores tries, sets them, breaks the lines, breaks tackles. Has he excelled yet not consistently but he is as I said only 24 and prob didn’t excel as much under the last 2 coaches as he did under Madge
I don’t get the hate for AJ, he might not be an out and out game breaker like Latrell but in all honesty there’s not many players in the NRL that are. What he is tho is quicker than anyone in our backline and everyone on this forum has been screaming for more speed out wide.
It’s not hate for AJ per se; it’s exasperation at the pitiful situation whereby we finally think our team may get a superstar but instead we get a standard winger
Like going to buy a Porsche but ending up with a great wall.
At least someone is confident
I look at it this way, we get him and we make those souffs floggers on there forum look like toothless clowns.
Or they get him and we say haha made you pay more then his worth you toothless flogwits. Lol
