I don't know a lot about Schoupp but if it means Garrick back to wing (will probably be Talau) and we don't need to see Vaega or Paulo in FG then I am ok with it. Question for me is: Is he a good defensive centre?

However given the Titans long injury list at the moment why would they let him go?

Need centers too BenT and Garrick aren't what we need playing there
I agree. Ben T isn't a centre in my opinion. Nor an NRL backrower. Fringe player at best. But we have koula, garrick, talau, paulo, faulalo, even parker to an extent that can play centre. Now we wanna add schoupp. So at full strength that will leave 4 players in cup that can play centre. 5 if you include burbo. Just think we could of used money elsewhere first or put it towards a bigger player. Just my opinion.

He has played 2 games this year. Missed 3 tackles first game. 7 on the weekend. 75 percent tacke rate

I thought Talua was pretty good on Friday and I think centre is his position. Rubes is a much better winger but both he and Seibs seem determined to make it work in the centres.

I agree that Paulo is average but I thought Ray showed enough again on Friday that he is a decent back up winger.

This Schoupp signing seems another strange one. I can only assume he isn't costing much.

Don't disagree with you but I guess though with Turbo out for a fairly long time and to be honest likely to be out again before the years out, I guess we need to look at more options, I really think Talau is our only genuine center, Faulalo went alright in the trials I went and watched, Koula is solid but looks like a better FB option as at least he gets more involved, then the rest of those guys are just Wingers and now Parker's bulked up he moves even slower so that's not really an option anymore. I guess we have 4 or 5 spots to fill anyway in our top 30 so we'd probably need to get cracking.

Perhaps it has something to do with Haslers reaction to his stoush with Hastingon Saturday, seems very sudden 🤔

Agree 1000%. I got torn to shreds for suggesting Ben T isn't an NRL first grader a number of weeks ago.
I dont even think Jake is worth the $950k he is getting. Look at impact and contributions in attack and defence that Carrigan, Murray, Radley, Nanai and others and I bet they give far better value for money.
