    It would appear that Pay doesn't rate any of them. Even when Ogden was the only one bending the line he dropped him and hasn't really been seen since....

    8. Tolman
    10. Napa
    13. Jackson/Stimson/Elliott

    14. To'omaga
    15. RFM
    16. Stimson/Elliott

    18. Ogden
    19. Sue
    20. Britt

    That's what we have with NRL experience for the time being, Kalache will also have another pre season under him with a few for the Flegg boys being promoted to reserves. Pay probably doesn't like a few options though..

    And then they'll get frustrated and all leave and flourish elsewhere. Just exactly what's happened for the last decade plus.

    Ogden was topping the metres per carry for us, good post contact and had one of the quicker play the ball speeds. He was also a genuine threat too the defensive line. He got smashed for his defence even though plenty of others in the team were no better or infact worse.

    That's enough to get us by til 2021. Signing Packer or Ese Ese when they're not even better than our young bench props would just waste cap space, stifle their development and mean that we'll lose another good batch of promising young forwards that plenty of other clubs would be keen to snap up in an instant.

    Yep I had Ogden easily over Napa mid season. Napa is the dud player moving forward and I would be shopping him around this off season. Obviously that won't happen but he certainly isn't or deserves to be the run on prop.

    We have plenty!! Rather just re-sign Fualalo and have him and Ogden as backups.

    The only forward we should buy is TOP SHELF PROP FARK!! Go enquire about Ryan James or test the dragons for Paul Vaughan.... plenty out there and we are fishing in muddy waters fark me this is annoying.

    Packer for 400k is worse then Radradra for 1m (even if there was no other competition for Radradra).

    You just have to look at RFM and To'omaga, those two through the middle have the potential to be crucial for us moving forward. Footwork, speed, strength, offloads...everything we need.

    Last week they played a combined 50 odd minutes and ran over a combined 200m with two of the quickest play the ball speeds. Need to get more minutes out of them with the idea of potentially pushing them into the starting side.

    Napa is just a pillow. Will play consistently average with undisciplined defence with the odd strong game here and there. Needs to drop some weight imo, would make him better player.

    I hope it doesn’t happen he has played eff all first grade the last 2 years and it’s debatable that he’s better then Ese Ese who is much younger and as prop could still improve. From what I understand Packer is happy to stay in Reggie’s cause of the money he’s on so it says a bit about his motivation. Him coming to us would mean potentially less game time for RT or RFM and I’m not sure why a coach would do that the way they are playing now.

    He'd be playing reserve grade for us too. We signed CHN and he was playing reserve grade. Unless Packer shows something from reserve grade he won't come into our 17, so it's just a waste of money/salary cap.

    He’s got a right to dig his heels in, he went there to be coached by cleary... got offered big money to come only for a year later to be told to be look somewhere else after he done what the current coach has asked him to do...
