Heard a little rumour he wants out?
I heard another little rumour, "Most of us want him out" too. Not giving value for money.

He's best bet for 2021 would be fighting hard to earn a bench spot
For mine, Ogden & Thompson Start & Hetherington, Renouf, Smith are all ahead of him at this stage.
Then there is the question re does TBaz play RFM in the middle & Waddell starting edge.

At least one thing for sure with Napa, he's off contract so there's a 90% chance we will see his best year yet..... tends to happen all the time - look at Elliott last year.

If he’s not gone already he may as well put in and hit some bastards. Who cares if he gets suspended.

Don’t let the door smack him on the arse on the way out

the bloke has become too comfortable with the shitty salary cap saga and uncertainty in the boards ranks over the last couple years, probably thought he was untouchable....

2021 season, he needs to be read the riot act and fire up or be shown the door

We should recruit the Souths doctor and medically retire Napa. Free up 600k in the cap and forward pay players on big $ in 2021 and bingo extra 600k on top of the free space after we clear the dead wood end of next year. We can then afford to pay say 150k overs for 4 quality players in 2022+ or forward pay some key players again.

Im hearing Newcastle and Warriors are sniffing around him..
LOL the Warriors...first Montoya and now Napa. Fucking Beautiful. Buy one dud get one free....Lewis
That would explain his absence from preseason training. 2020 has been a shitty year but we're ending it on a high note

Brah, why u so salty?
Nappa was a knee jerk recruitment decision based on an appallingly easy release of Klemmer for no compensation whatsoever by an incompetent board and coach who have since departed leaving us with said turd that is clogging the dunney and even a HUGE plunger cannot remove.
Probably couldn’t say it any better myself

Crapa is on a contract year so he will lift but we won't get fooled.

For the money he is on we can get a forward who offers more than him in 2022.

No chance he goes to the Warriors now they picked up Mat Lodge.

Warriors have spent way more than us, even just looking at our gains and losses, surely we have 2 more big signings to go.

Increasing his leg drive is a must.

Did anyone see Napa hanging out with some Newcastle players on 9 news this evening? I reckon this is a sign that he is leaving.
