    The minute he wanted out of the Tigers I always assumed he'd end up there, especially with Parra's pack being their weakness.

    Still, he's a great signing at a decent price for a player who almost made Origin this season. It pisses me off that Parra keep making shrewd signings. It's very unlike them!

    Eels will be all over us in rd 1 if we don't make any good signings.

    Don't know why we didn't put feelers out to Sivo before he re-signed recently for unders apparently. We should of made the Eels pay top dollar for him

    One good thing at least - they definitely won't be competing for David Fifita now

    Yeah but Sivo made his name at the Eels not Penrith which means he was cheap as furk then so his mention is redundant.

    But that makes him an even better signing for Parra because he cost nothing initially and they wisely quickly extend him.

    Imagine if we fluked signing Sivo instead of Meaney or Chrichton?

    Thats the luck of the game my friend, it’s just the way it is! I wouldn’t mention Meaney detrimentally though because the kid has a massive future I rate him in the Billy Slater mould just needs a little more time to develop, he has an old head on young shoulders eventually his body and talent will shine through! I liked what I seen from him this year and expect he will go to another level in 2020 just be patient mate he is a good one.

    I thought the Eels were over the cap in 2018 :tonguewink:. They've definitely upgraded their roster since then...

    Gone are the days where Parramatta are recruiting Chris Sandow on big money. They are actually making decent signings now but luckily they still have Arthur in charge who is a myth.

    If you believe the figures that float around then something is a bit off here.
    Gutho 700k
    Moses 800k
    Paulo 700k
    Fergo 500k
    Evans 500k
    Matterson 550k
    Blake 500k
    Grub brown 500k
    Lane 500k
    Word is D. Brown offered 700k....

    Thats 6mil for 10players.
    Leaves bit under 4mil for 20players, so an average of a bit under 200k for each player.
    Thats with leaving guys like Sivo, Jennings, Mahoney, RCG, Alvaro

    As long as they have that shirtlifter Moses as their "heart and soul" they ain't winning a premiership. That ponce goes missing quicker than Osama Bin Laden when times are tough. Have never seen a 1st-grade player be so scared of contact as Mitchy-boy. He's a cat.
