I guess the other thing to consider is the 5/8 role.

If we dont sign Benji. Tui rockets up to number 2 on our 5/8 depth chart.

Reynolds still has a long way to go to win the role.
Its an opinion!

Nah see I still think a full fit Lolohea is a better option at FB then Thompson.

Thompson runs harder but Lolohea offers more creativity and smarts and I think his knee injury has restricted him which has made him look slower
Put the pipe down champ. No idea.
Seems Ivan agreed with me Champ.

I’m liking the idea of Tui at centre. That does push Fonua to wing which is a pity because I think Centre is his position.

Tui at Centre is a good option. Either that or you have him as a bench utility player from next year (assuming Marshall retires).

He is a big step up from Godinet and will play a similar role.

Other option is back to the good old days where we pay players to play against us.

Thompson is better on the wing and the Dogs aren't much of an attacking threat... he must have huge faith in Tui signing Mbye.

Tui should be offloaded I’d we sign Mbye.
He’s had his chance just a very average footballer. No go in him runs back slowly and is loafing at the back. Kicking game is terrible.
If his contract is low I suppose there is no issue keeping him in the squad for the Magpies.

WOW! Cleary made a weird comment tonight about watching blokes you’d keep and blokes you’d let go (my words). I thought it was a strange comment but if you are on the money it makes perfect sense.

I hope not! I like Tui, besides what do we get out of swapping him for Moses? Still paying close to 700k for Moses. Doesn't make sense

Will be interesting as we don’t gain players this way. And would have even more cash for further acquisitions...

I like Tui, but this maybe for the best if other signings make it worth it.

We would be crazy to let Tui go, he is still transitioning to the fullback role - that doesn’t happen overnight but he was one of the shining lights against the bulldogs with his speed and footwork.

But if Mbye comes....
