Foran's body would take an absolute hammering at 9. You pretty much have to be the fittest player in the team to play there. He'd last one game at 9 with those shoulders of his. Also, his best quality is taking the ball into the line to attract defenders...something that he won't be able to do from 9. Silly idea.
Do you know if we are in talks with him? If so for how long and how much? Cheers. Good to have you back

Foz is going to run down Brian Lara's 501* in County Cricket if he does sign. Only 27 more pages to go.

It was gonna be near impossible before but now that AFB is going, we are poised to have a red hot crack and are definitely interested. I heard 2 year deal...anything more is obviously fraught with danger...but 1 year comes with limited job security so meet in the middle.

There are no guarantees but we'll be in the race.

I'd only be somewhat happy if they still played Schuster in the 17. Probably at ball playing lock like Filter, Wade Graham, Gift etc. Could still play a lot of first receiver and move Jake to prop.

If it meant keeping Shuster back for 2 years no way. He is the future moving forward

The Schu to 13 and jake to prop to replace afb. Jakes too slow compared to the other locks in the game. Schuster with his silky hands and kicking game will add another dimension to our attack.. kinda like gifty

Love that idea, that works for me

6. Kieran Foran
7. Daly Cherry-Evans
8. Jake Trbojevic
9. Manase Fainu ( :( )
10. Taniela Paseka
11. Haumole Olakautau
12. Curtis Sironen
13. Josh Schuster
14. Dummy Half/Halfback Utility (personally think Cust or Benji Marshall is a smart idea and try sell croker to tigs as depth. Schuster to learn off of dce, foran and benji! Cool head, never injured)
15. Martin Taupau

I just find it hard to believe Des wouldn’t be after Foz...still the best five eighth in the NRL.
Keary might have something to say about that bout foran is still one of the best imo. Hes the short side raid king. Dce cant muster a short side raid to save him life.. last one i remember was back in 2014

For me this would be the team id like to see start round 1 2021.

1. Turbo
2. Saab
3. Walker
4. Suli
5. Funa
6. Foran
7. Cherry-Evans
8. Jake (C)
9. Cust (unless we buy someone)
10. Martin
11. Guacamole
12. Sironen
13. Schuster

14. Not sure yet but probably be croker :(
15. Jetski
16. Paseka
17. Keppie

Parker harper hoppa all back ups

Cust should be our 9 or back up 9.. he played back up this season.

Jake to prop and to be named Captain (wont happen) and play longer minutes like he does in origin and like klemmer does.

I like it! Im keen on any option that would get rid of Croker though, so I think someone like Benji is a good option on a one or two year deal as our utility. It's very rare that a player with his experience, fitness, passion and sharp vision would not only be available for cheap, but also be happy to commit to a one or two-year role as a bench utility. Great opportunity imo.

I see where your going with the Benji angle, im just not sure the club will sign 2 veterans playing the same position.

Signing Foran to play 6 does not make a lot of sense to me, given his injury issues, and the obvious roadblock to Shu.

Signing Foran to play at 9 is probably , no definately, the stupidest thing I have ever seen suggested on ST. He would not last even 1 match in the middle,.

Makes lots of sense.. playing him at nine does not! Cust would make a better 9. He's tough rugged likes to run and has a decent short kicking game on him.
Foran can teach Schuster to be a great 6. I think we need the Schu to play lock.
