Jorge is a winger and not a bench player or forward.
Hahahahaha Jorge utility
Mentioned this in another thread. I reckon he would fill that role great. If he can add hooker to his arsenal he would be the perfect bench utility/impact. High intensity and covers multiple positions.GoJetSki as a part-time relief hooker is an interesting proposition .... would allow 4 forwards on the bench and he can also cover centre .... it works with Victor Radley at Rorters and they are similiar styles of player .....
I guess you have more smarts than Des then considering he disagrees with what you consider an err in judgement, LOLJorge at hooker? bwahahaha.
Jorge ain’t got the smarts for hooker or anywhere but winger really. I’d be happy if he is not even the preferred first option on the wing next year. Just doesn’t do enough stuff well, unfortunately as the couple of things he does do well, he does really well
I think we erred a bit in giving him and thommo two years extra, both should’ve got one year only IMO

As for Jorge, don’t judge a book mate, ive had pleasure of conversing with the man himself, he is quite intelligent and articulate, cant say the same for Fainu from what I have seen but yet he’s our 1st choice hooker and an amazing one. Des knows all his players more intimately then we ever could, he would not make any bad retentions unless he knew something. I only speculate given the gaps and player movements in and out but Des has a plan for him.
As for Thommo, 2 years will be a win for us with his leadership of all the youngsters coming through.
Theres no evidence of the contrary in that case, wingers are the recipient of final passes in most part so theres nothing there to judge his footy smarts by or show enough passes to say he has no ball play., so pull your head in with the ludicrous comment mate, my guess is as good as yours! doesnt mean he cant fill the role if tried. Look at Walker, most here said he couldn’t be 5/8 and there was plenty of ‘evidence’ to back that up given past failures, but Des persevered with him and it started paying off, not saying Jorge will or wont be used that way but i see the potential there and there is no evidence to show he cant, he can bust tackles and gains plenty of metres and although slow for a winger his pace would be great for a dummy half , these are attributes that say potential, not ludicrous at all!I’m Talking about footy smarts, Jorge has done nothing in 7 years of First grade to show he has any of the tools to play hooker. You are basing his utility on no evidence at all. He probably has passed the ball a total of 20 times in his whole career. It would need to be double that in a single game of
Hooker. It’s ludicrous to suggest he will play hooker.
I agree thommo is a great leader, I just don’t know if he has two more years of NRL quality play left in him and ha may just block a pathway for one of our up and coming players in his second year. Better to sever ties with a player one year early than hold on to them one year long. It also sucks losing players who don’t get Game time coz the veterans hang around forever
I don’t think I need to pull my head in on this one mate, I don’t think anyone on this site, nor the wider league watching public would agree that tafua should be played as a hooker.
He is on the wing for a reason and hasn’t got the raw materialsto be played anywhere else, his hard yards are good, but really he has never demonstrated the skill or application to play anywhere else.
Everyone can have an opinion, but some are still wrong
His play the balls are quite safe, i often notice him play it with both hands on the ball, this however is a disciplinary aspect all players are guilty of at times and Jorge does not display this as often as your gut feeling tells you ‘might’ happen. Not trying to be an advocate for Jorge but he is far better than what many perceive of him and Des seems to agree.I cringe every time Jorge has a run and the ensuing play the ball waiting for a school boy mistake, I shudder to see him doing that 5 or 6 times a game with a dummy half scooot and trying a quick play the ball from hooker, a hooker he is is not. I think Jorge will start on the wing in 2020 but end up been a depth player once some of the young guys recover from injuries and get a chance. If the last 3 years have shown anything we have had a lot of injuries to centres , wingers, fullbacks , Jorge included so there will be chances for him and others in the other positions for game time
So that counts the Roosters out lolololol..............https://www.nrl.com/operations/integrity/salary-cap/
Each club's top 30 must fit under a $9.6 million salary cap in 2019, with the minimum wage for players ranked 1-26 on earnings being $105,000 and $72,500 for players 27-30.

This is the way I see it, we have 4 spots to fill in Top 30 plus the 6 Dev squad spots
- Hoppa Jnr
- Jack G
Top 30 Questions still over Funa, Perrett, Kioa plus not sure whether a few are contracted for next year eg Croker etc
Dev squad still questions over where these will be in Dev or Blacktown - Anderson, Trex, ZDC, miski,
Acquisitions Possibly Musgrave, Issac Luke
I believe Gosiewski would be wasted at hooker. Also not sure we need 4 forwards on the bench. AFB plays huge minutes and Thommo siro and jake are all 80 minute players. Even waddell and Gosiewski as depth showed they can play 80 so personally not sure the need to carry 4 forwards. Gosiewski will get a bench spot but not sure about him regularly playing time at hooker. Hooker is a Specialist position and we need great service from there to get us rolling up field.Mentioned this in another thread. I reckon he would fill that role great. If he can add hooker to his arsenal he would be the perfect bench utility/impact. High intensity and covers multiple positions.
