He got a 40/20 in the Knights trial. We really need more attacking options and speed the balance just doesn't seem right.

The way that Gamble can hit the line I would offer him a chance in the centres.

For 2018, I'd do a Bellamy and squeeze the best talent into our squad like he did with Inglis; Folau; Munster & Scott. Non were Centres, but he knew they were too good to leave out & because of their talent, will get the job done.

Tyson Gamble!
Agree
Gamble would be great IMO

Yes please to Fergo. He was Roosters' best player by a mile last game
I would put I Line through Fergo because he has
I don't care how much Speed he has
Fergi doesn't get brown paper bags
He gets little clear plastic bags
No thanks
I am sure there will be plenty of other options if required

On what planet was Kevin responsible for letting in that try? The chooks had numbers out wide and would have scored against almost any team. If he'd left their forward one on one with Brooks, I'm sure you guys would be bagging him out for that.

At least if you are going to put the boot in, give him credit for some of the great tackles he made.

Defensively he had it all over Marsters.
It was 3 on 3 kev left his man unopposed to charge in leaving a gaping hole.It was all his fault and as for saying he was better than Marsters in defence i must have watched a different game
I agree
We can and eventually will find better a better centre than Kev
But let's not forget we won our game
Kev was part of the team and played his part
If Masters made that decision would we ask for his head
What about Taylor
Would we want his head on the chopping block if he missed a tackle that lead to a try
Cleary will make the right decision
He already has
His team selection won us the game against the Roosters
All our players put in and we can be proud of them all
A couple more early wins and players will start come knocking

Josh Morris!
Give him 2 to 3 years.
We need that experience on the left.
No good paying 300,000 to 400,000 for an up am comer when you could sign a solid professional for 500,000.

Fergerson to play for the roosters 300,000 for us 550,000 and his rocks and diamonds.
I would like some experience in our back line and J Morris would be perfect.

I agree, bring Johnny Morris back. He would be the messiah for our centre problems. He was versatile, could play anywhere. Wing, 5/8, half back, hooker. Lock, centre.......did I miss any?
It starts and ends with the Tiger!

How old is Josh Morris next year
32
He won't be playing with Masters
He will be playing in the Masters
Some one a little younger would be good

If we were going to go after an experienced centre I'd be looking at Justin O'Neill (who is 26) ahead of Josh Morris (31).

Taane Milne has been very disappointing.

He might have got on the bus but that is where his effort stopped.

He needs to show that he wants it.
Its an opinion!

If Marsters and Taylor were continually making the same error for 2 or 3 years? Yes.
He has proven beyond doubt that he's not a first grader.

Each to their own but I disagree.
Despite his age Josh Morris is a competitor is excellent in defence and really sets up his winger well.
Justin O’Neil is a decent centre, worth his origin start but I feel needs the right environment to get the best out of him.
Look it all depends how well we are perceived as a destination.
But what you are suggesting is exactly what I am disputing, paying almost Marquee money to lure someone like Justin O’Neil where you could give a decent contract to a proven centre instead for less. Morris is after his last contract and will probably sign for 2 more years with the dogs. Offering him 3 and a lil extra could get him.

Milne hasn't done a lot right or wrong. The ball never went to his side of the field against the Dogs, except for a couple of chip kicks which went straight to Nof. It would be good to see us run the ball down that flank a bit.

No way you'd give Morris a long contract given his injury troubles. They were trying to offload him due to his massive cap hit but there were still no biters.

Milne looked alright to me.

Nice offload and didn't miss any tackles.

Granted the ball didn't find him much but he looks likely and surprisingly VERY trim.

He looks like he has lost a few kegs.
