Parramatta the only team below us and the wooden spooners put 7 unanswered tries against us .
ThIs could be more realistic after December 11
Can we change the thread to “ who replaces both of our centres “!!!
I agree though with a proper 5/8 he could really shine in the centers.. most of the time suli had walker playing in the halves and we all know hes no halfback. Im with you though.. lets hope he can catch ay hahaha. Walker dce and suli on wing will be a great combination especially if des can get turbo chiming in on the right like snake used to. Im also expecting jake to ball play on the edges like gifty did But now this new rubbish with dkhead walker has all that up in the air
Great work letting Kelly go.
Who replaces walker!
I can see Jorge just being left right out of favour. DES won't focus on run metres at the expense of errors especially non forced and defensive.
Taufua asked if he could get a run in the centres a few weeks back...don't like his chances but anything could happen. I know we are looking at a centre but I am not prepared to say who out of respect. All I will say is they are a QLDer. This whole situation with Kelly is cap based. The player we get is not gonna be as pricey as Kelly. Not saying this player has signed either, just that we are enquiring. Garrick is looking pretty good at the moment too so he could be a smokey. Albert Hoppa probably a year away. He won't be 18 until after the season has started so even if he gets a run, it won't be to start the year.
Even if Garrick does come good it'd still be nice to add an experienced centre to the squad. Still reckon we need another forward too. Any news on positions they are looking to fill other than centre?
No news around forwards at this stage other than Perrett still a chance to be released...he is on bigger money than he should be for a player that hasn't kicked on. It's not that he wouldn't be useful but we could probably bolster depth by using his money to sign two players.
Someone make a list of centres from Queensland lol
So I'm guessing this player hasn't played any representative football?
Too hard because, as we all know, there is no one who isn’t from Queensland! All jokes aside, Javid Bowen comes to mind as someone from Qld (I believe) who needs an opportunity.
What have we got at the moment: 01. Tom Trbojevic 02. Jorge Taufua / Tevita Funa 03. Brendan Elliott 04. Moses Suli 05. Brad Parker / Reuben Garrick 06. Kane Elgey 07. Daly Cherry-Evans Dear - Lord. And I spent half a grand on buying a season ticket to watch that. Gone are the days of Matai / Lyon or Matai / Bell. Holy **** that's terrible. Remember when I used to whinge because we had Andrew Walker and Michael Witt in our backline with guys like Albert Torrens, Scott Donald and Mitch Creary / Nick Bradley-Qallilawa. God, I miss those days.
@Snake posted that the Qld centre the club are looking into is a cheaper option than what Brian Kelly was. Now, Kelly was reportedly being paid somewhere in the vicinity of $150k a season... Jack Bird is a NSWelshman, and his contract at the Donkeys was reported as being around $800k plus a season.
Gela Mosby or Bowen ?
Kelly asked for a release as he wanted to be closer to family! Manly did not let him go........would prefer someone who wants to be here rather than someone who's heart is not in it.
