    What I’ve seen from Stimson he looks like he runs awesome lines... would be a waste to put him in the middle. I don’t think jacko offers much on an edge anymore put him in the middle for his defence - agree with others CHN & Stimson on the edges next year. All 3 can play big minutes.

    That's what should happen. Hopefully Elliott and Smith can get jobs somewhere else asap. Even RFM isn't cut out for the consistent grind of NRL. He should go to England. His offload has gone backwards - pretty much disappeared - and he's only good for a couple of runs each game before he knocks off. Fualalo is a better player than RFM now and we shouldn't keep him either.

    Fualalo is off contract this year, RFM is off contract at the end of 2020.

    Yes and no.. a ball is only as good as the run.

    Stimson has scored plenty of tries this year and his tries in the q cup were near identical to those in first grade. Some blokes have it and some just don't.. hopefully his our fitzgibbon next yr.

    Plenty do.. hopefully pay is just giving Jacko sometime off on the edges before we become real competitive and then he locks up our middle when gunning for a title. There irealy isn't much point in breaking him now for no reason other than the battle for last place...

    I agree but do you think RFM has gone backwards under Pay?

    Every Storm forward looks good running lines on the edge, key part of their system. How many do we see leave the club and never replicate the form? Harris looks to be the only exception in recent years.

    Maybe a different coach could get something out of him. I doubt any other NRL clubs would be very interested though.

    Yeah agree, Stimson and CHN backrow, although i still feel that CHN needs to pack on some more muscle. Don't rate RFM, and I don't know if Jackson is needed past next year we are better off signing a specialist lock. Jai Arrow comes to mind.

    Don't agree about CHN having to pack on more muscle, he's very well balanced as is right now. Not like he is struggling to break tackles, push an offload away or get a quick play the ball. What he needs to work on is his consistency and discipline.

    maybe but I think it’s more the club they go to. Look at CHN he’s been able to keep his form and his gun line running especially when Foran is there so the key is more Foran staying on the field. I wouldn’t be that negative about it, I think it’s a good signing considering who we currently have.

    CHN played and Penrith and not the Storm so that doesn't really counter the argument. A large majority of Storm forwards have left and never looked the same at there new clubs, no need to get overly excited about a bit part player from the Storm joining us.

    Maybe you missed my point... if he’s a line runner and that’s his strength then he has a good guy to run off in our team if he is fit. Nobody is overally excited but most agree that on his form he is a 1st grader at almost every other club and that’s a good thing for us right now.

    I didn't miss your point, I'm just saying all the Storm forwards are so called good line runners until they leave the club and they're not.

    Fair enough... we’ll see how he goes. He’s big strong, got footwork and comes from a winning culture so hopefully that rubs off on others.

    Talking about Storm forwards..looks like the Warriors are throwing big money at Tino fhdhwhwhdjdhsndhsjdhsgdmfjwvsbsui. Storm already have him on 250k next season.

    His a marked man.

    I think you're being way too harsh on Jackson. He played origin last year and won dally M second rower of the year. He's really quite a solid player. With a better team, he'll be even better than he is now. Getting rid of him now would not be a good idea.
