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.
We are a danger to ourselves when we have cap space. We will give him 500k and Pascoe will try dress this up as a big win for the club. Why not just hold our money and try get an actual star.
Running out of time. We need to fill our roster and spend money to reach the minimum amount in the cap. If we can’t land a superstar, we have to go the next rung down. If we’re signing AJ, you just hope he’s not the only one.
Here’s hoping mate, sorry for my rant every one just feel a bit let down. It would be nice to feel like we get a win in the player market here’s hoping our time will come.
