I'm only 10 teams in do I need to keep going. If you're going to come @ me at least think about what you're going to say beforehand.
Still worse than Radley?

Yes, not sure you've watched D. Saifiti (or watched a game of NRL for that matter) in the last 2 years.

The stats don't support your opinion.
10th for props in avg metres per game
11th for props in avg PCMs
10th for props in avg 8m+ runs
8th for props metres per run

Haas and Tapine aren't available, got to take the risk on this kind of guy.

There are 20-30 middles in the NRL better than D. Saifiti. I don't care about your stats (where you also didn't include locks). Spending decent money on a player like this does little to nothing for us. Wait until 2025.

No, but that includes inflated averages from guys like Molo and Ogden who haven't played the same amount of games. Including Locks wouldn't make sense, we need a dominant, big body prop.

If your willing to not care about anyone’s stats then it’s impossible to prove anything if you’re that stubborn and refuse to care. This is the last i speak with you on this because it’s a waste of time. Most people know that D Saf would be a great acquisition

Critics of Daniel Saifiti obviously think they know more than the selectors.
He is always close to the first prop selected in the national team. Not in top 30 is ludicrous.

We should have went after Royce Hunt when he was available, he’s better than TPJ, probably on less money too. He has mongrel in him and can actually get over the advantage line

There are 20-30 middles better than D. Saifiti (I stand by my list and there are even more players I left out). Old mates list already had over 10 props better than D. Saifiti which didn't include locks where a lot of the best players play, already close to 20 middles better if we just use that (your reply is moronic and you zoom in on one thing I said and not everything). Gus won't sign him and anyone who thinks he'd be a good addition are delusional. We're the worst team in the competition D. Saifiti does nothing for us. You're also stubborn and it'll be impossible for you to not reply again.

Saifiti was really good today. He'd be a good signing for any team. Especially ours that need strong, impact middles like him that don't take a backwards step and carry defenders with them..

Newcastle would be stupid to let him go but they make dumb moves all of the time and signed Elliott and Hetherington etc, so you never know..

D Saf with 15 runs for 173m in 51 minutes. Most metres for a forward for either teams.
Apparently TPJ produces those similar numbers considering D Saf is ‘TPJ level bad’

Nah not ‘marquee’ enough for people on here mate. Not even Top 30 for forwards

I don't base my opinion off 1 run or 1 game. The D. Saifiti and TPJ comparison you're referring to in regards to metres/minute over the last 2 years is a fact (stats). They're similar. There are 20-30 middles better than D. Saifiti, also a fact.

I don't think you understand how many quality/elite middles there are in the competition. D. Saifiti isn't one of them. How about you talk about the list of middles I listed instead of me saying something very obvious is a fact. I feel sorry for anyone who can't see something as black and white as D. Saifiti isn't a top 20-30 middle.
