Leilua would definitely be the player Canberra are trying to offload. They've been trying to get rid of him for ages with no success. We already have Marsters who's similar and got a much better temperament. Our other centre needs to be fast or at the very least, reliable.
Tell Ricky we'll take Rapana, Cotric,Tapine and Guler to assist with their cap problem.
Those players are the exact ones that'd make us contenders..

I wish.

I’m a real fan of Tapine, but he’s on the verge of re-signing with the Raiders.
Tapine, Matherson and Rowdy would make a great secondrow combination.

Derrrrrrius is still attached to the umbilical cord, he would most probably follow along.
Fine by me Darius would be our best Centre too ...
Our best fullback as well Geo , far more creative than Mbye , obviously does not have his speed
Where covered with Mbye , Thompson and young Smith at fullback centres not so much....

But we don't need Origin class players so forget it...plus he falls in the tool category... :roll:
It's a bit like the Matterson situation following the signing of Crichton at the Roosters. The Raiders have signed John Bateman from the UK and while he can play 2nd row and centre I'd imagine they're pretty happy with Tapine and Whitehead in their 2nd row with Papalii at lock. Croker is their captain and goal kicker so I can't see him going anywhere. Leilua is the odd man out if they're looking to play Bateman at centre, or alternatively they could offload Rapana and shift Leilua to the wing.

Is Bateman a better player than Leilua or Rapana? No, but he would free up plenty of salary cap space for the Raiders vs having Leilua or Rapana on the books. It would be worth asking the Raiders about the availability of Leilua or Rapana. I'd happily take either.

I don't imagine Bateman was signed as a reggies player. He's looked pretty good in the centres when playing for England - certainly held his own.

So you people think that the Raiders player is Joey Leilua?

Yeah, being able to slip Ryan back in as a ball playing lock in the middle is very appealing and would prefer someone with more pace than Esan outside him to utilise his ball craft if used wide. Thought that Tapine caused us more issues than any other right edge player this past season.

I agree , but he would be our No 1 fullback ,centre or winger

I thought we had a no DH policy , not a no tool policy

And we just lust plodders

I hope they name the COE after one of our plodders
