Clubs are lining up just as soon as news of the Jet being on the open market......
Along with the Knights, the Parramatta Eels and Canterbury Bulldogs have been named as potential destinations for Roberts, with the Eels expecting to be without Michael Jennings after he provided a positive A sample to performance-enhancing substances.
Nice journo speak tbere.
Three clubs named as potential destinations, FMD, all clubs are “potential destinations” effectively but let’s just name three that will pay the most.

No substitute to speed in the modern game. If Dessie can work some magic and for the right price he could be a good pick up

Id take him..... but seems unlikely and not great confidence he will ever play to his ability.....just as likely to take big coin and head to the UK, by the time he hits 30 and loses his 1 trump card - Speed....be likely a Qld cup player at best....

He is another Addo sports Carr that changes the game with a blink of an eye
Not in the same class @BOZO . One in the formula one class, the other in the HQ Holden class (that being said, they should’ve never taken the HQs outta the Indy preparation . The impersonation of a boat coming through the back chicanes was priceless).

If you thought the HQ's were fun on the Gold Coast ... you should check out the AUSCAR's and NASCAR's.

The NASCAR's especially ... BIG horsepower, heavyweight cars with no brakes and the field largely comprised of guys who had never raced on a road circuit in their lives (at least the AUSCAR's usually had road racers like Brad Jones and Jim Richards who knew how to brake and turn right occasionally lol).

The term fish out of water comes to mind lol

My question is to you feathered friend
How many of those blistering 5 tries did Horhay and co , (Funa , Parker , Hoppa , Garrick and Harper) score this year or have the explosive pace and game breaking ability of the Jet ?
My friend we already have two centers, with parker and harper as back ups

I would be willing to give him a shot but not on the money he would probably expect. Genuine match winner on his day though. He Clearly has his demons. I hope he can be rid of them someday.

He'd fit right in with some of the dickheads in our team. Not what we need in de-dickheadifying our club and returning our winning culture.

Roberts flatters to deceive.

He is a highlights reel player that is not nearly as good as people make him out to be.

Would be a poor investment for us

I don't want Roberts, we need better defence not worse

We do not need to take that risk. We have Walker and Suli as starting centres and Parker, Funa and Harper as depth. With Schuster at 5/8 and Foran and Walker to fall back on and DCE at seven we are okay in the backs provided Des sorts out our ridiculous defensive structure out wide.

Funny how the Eels, Knights have an endless amount of cash to buy players eh? Roberts linked to both as well as Bulldogs.

Both are exceptionally fast, but 1 major difference.....Addo Carr finds the game and is always dangerous because he is always involved, Roberts waits for the game to come to him and if it doesn't, you dont see him.
