I wouldn’t be in a rush to sign him. Not just cos his old man is a goose, but if he was worth anything, why would Griffin not want him. The guy who a lot of you like to credit with the success of the Panthers juniors. He obviously can spot a young player.

Same reason we aren’t keeping Benji, salary cap. Norman is on close to a million, Hunt is on a million, they’ve got Clune and another young fella Sullivan as well. Someone has to miss out out of that 5 and it’s sailor. That’s what I reckon anyway.

I think there are other reasons why we’re not keeping Benji, the leaking defence for one.

If we signed Sailor we’d be doing it after both McGregor and Griffin rejected him. He may surprise but you don’t see many players rejected by multiple coaches that become stars.

Also, having his dad talking about the club is the last thing we need with all the leaks we have.

How is sailors defence. Don’t recall seeing him play

About as good as any other rookie half, not very good 😂

Then Reynolds/Walters are better, at least they can tackle. We need players who can tackle.

Until we stop leaking 30 points a game, we’ll never go anywhere.

He is better than Reynolds and Walters.
Walters will miss a chunk of the season recovering from his ACL at best he is a reserve anyway.

That’s a ridiculous statement. He’s played 3 games off the interchange bench at an ordinary team and missed about half the tackles he’s attempted.

There is potential sure, but he ain’t better than what we have.

So many fans seem to only look at the attack.

Sorry I’m a bit confused I thought it was the coaches job to address this issue and make the necessary adjustments

Correct. The coach picks the team.

Agree, line speed is a big one. It was fairly evident against Bulldogs the first time and also against Parra, that our line speed was strong and you could hear the contact in the tackles. So much so is we were racking up concussions everywhere.

Since then I’ve noticed we sometimes start with good line speed but it tapers off pretty quickly.

I know Madge makes the team play as if they’re fitter than the opposition, but I’m not sure we’re as fit as it’s made out to be.

I was looking over our results and trying to figure what exactly happened to our defence after it was looking good for a period of time against decent sides.

In the 6 games after the Titans game, the most points we conceded was 20, including 19 from Penrith, 14 from Canberra.

After that, our defence fell off a cliff and the least points we conceded was 26.

The obvious change was that was when Benji came into the starting side (We did beat broncos 48-0 in his first game back, but that looks like an outlier). I can’t see much else that has coincided with this, Brooks was also dropped around this time, but he came back and nothing much changed in this area. Our attack also improved around this time which is worth noting.

Anyway, I thought it was interesting, it says a bit about the impact Benji has on the team. Seems like we become all about attack and we score points but our defence falls apart.

Apparently Peta Hiku has been offered a one contract by the Worries on less money than this year he’s quite a good centre

We don’t need anymore Centres - IMO
Douhli, BJ, Mbye, Momo, Talau, Hoffman, Cini, Kei etc Staggs 😉

Agree. We need specialist wingers, apart from Nofa every other outside back is a centre. AJ is supposedly a centre as well.

I wonder if the club are looking into some of these guys that have a bad name at the moment in the media. Looks to be a lot of value around if they can pick the right players.

Cartwright for example has been probably the worst player in the NRL at the Titans, but when he first came into first grade at Penrith he was amazing. 1 year contract on minimum wage could work, might fail but we won’t lose much.

Tristan Sailor is another, possibly too small and if Dragons aren’t re-signing him it’s not a good sign for his future. Maybe he comes on minimum wage as well and becomes a surprise packet.

Michael Oldfield is another one, no star but might be decent back up if we have AJ on the left wing next year and he gets the dropsies again.

None of these are superstars but we badly need to get value out of cheap players and if we do sign JAC there will likely be not much cash left for the remaining 2-3 squad spots.

@Geo said in JAC:

That Staggs fella is a nice pick up…slipped under the radar

I’m sure the Pom mentioned this some time back…

No way. People are in a frenzy because he mentioned we’re interested in Staines who’s played 2 games. Can you imagine the hysteria if he said we were in talks with Staggs?

Reynolds is asking 800K…sign him up…

Page 1 is where the problem started. @Geo said this, and Ivan missed the sarcasm and followed the advice.
