    Of all available options we end up with Sione Katoa. That is fucking dreadful.

    I'd rather just keep Lichaa for another season.

    Have a look at his resume. He is a very fast and elusive player.
    He will be a relevatuion.

    There was another thread on this. Basically everyone thinks he is shit and it was a mistake to sign him. Typical response really. I will reserve judgement until he plays a few games for the club.

    There is nothing more annoying then reading comments that state

    “He’s a good cheap signing”

    Firstly he’s shit... let’s just be clear about that!

    And secondly who wants a cheap signing, especially in such a critical position??!! You want a top hooker, expect to pay top dollar... get that through your heads!!

    Not a bad signing. Would've come relatively cheap.

    There was and is , no hooker worth spending decent money on for the 2020 season. We need depth , clearly.. so if this is base wage depth signing as a fill gap, I don't have a problem with it.. I want a premier hooker, hopefully the club does also..

    If you're being serious, you've posted a video of the Sharks Winger in reserve grade, instead of the Hooker in reserve grade for the Panthers. They both have the same names...

    I think people need to remember we need to sign players for cc
    Every time the club signs someone that’s not a big name people blow up
    We do need players for Reggie’s peeps
    Just keep that in mind

    We need some depth at #9, I'm personally pleased Lichaa didn't wiggle his way back into another contract. Like all new signings we make I'll judge him on performance. If reputations made NRL careers Lichaa would be a regular starter in every rep team of the last 5 years.

    Despite Katoa not being on everyone's wishlist he may do ok. At 24 and having played as a backup for a while. He's probably someone that knows that he's got to work hard to cement a spot. I don't necessarily expect a lot from him. But hopefully we are pleasantly surprised.

    The amount of comments you post that are so far off the mark is concerning, maybe if you weren't so obsessed with Pay you would actually take a breath and look at things clearly instead of trying to justify every fucking decision he and the club makes. Deadset the only opinion you seem to have that doesn't involve sucking off the club is your weird hate for Hoppa lol.

    After missing out on Api the hooker options were very limited so anyone we bought wasn’t going to excite us. I’d prefer minimum wage Katoa over paying more for someone like Levi so I guess that’s one positive.
