Player movements and rumours

Discussion in 'The Cesspit: Rugby League Discussion' started by Julian, Apr 7, 2009.

  1. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Parra wanted him but needed to get rid of Norman before they could offer decent coin. If he really wanted to stay he could've waited out the outcome of that -- it doesn't look like staying here was a priority for him compared to getting a good deal and having his future sorted ASAP (which is absolutely fine, but it's not the narrative we'll hear).
  2. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    He is eligible to represent England. Could go alright in the 6 for them with Widdop at 7.
  3. Magic AJ Parker

    Looks like we have picked up Ryan Hall as Fergo's replacement.

    Given the way the recent outside backs who have come over to Australia from the ESL have struggled I'm a bit skeptical. At 30yrs of age there's not a whole lot time for him to settle into the NRL.
  4. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Sims signed with Dragons. By far the least talented of the 3 brothers.
  5. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    His playstyle shouldn't be affected by the jump in quality as it's a power game. Most of the backs who've come over and bombed hard have tended to have a skill/finesse game and cant handle the fitness/physicality.
  6. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Rorters also linked to Isaako and TPJ. If they sign TPJ there will be some bomb threats delivered.

    I know the Broncos are going pretty hard for O'Sullivan.

    It wouldn't surprise if we're not just trying to drive up Isaako and and TPJ'S salaries to impact the Broncs offer to O'Sullivan.

    Isaako makes absolutely no sense now that we have signed Hall. And apparently Hall had agreed a couple weeks back when we knew Fergo was gone.
  8. Magic AJ Parker

    Signing TPJ would mean losing one of Napa or JWH which seems unlikely.
  9. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    TPJ has potential to be the best player in the game. Broncos should be offering 800k+ with as long as a deal he wants.
  10. Alec AD Funkotron

    Haas signed a 6 year deal worth 3 million apparently. Pretty insane for a guy who played less than 30 mins total over 3 games. Wayne must be a huge fan, he never rated props in the past.
  11. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Insanity signing a young unproven player to such a long deal. He could be a complete dud, he has played 3 games and been injured twice.

    Money should be going into retaining Goates, TPJ and Gillett.
  12. Alec AD Funkotron

    TPJ will stay for sure IMO. Gillett is already signed for a couple more years. Oates will leave if he wants to play back row, he won't get it here with Su'a and Fifita coming through.
  13. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Do you actually think he has the potential to be better than Taumalolo and Burgess? Seriously?
  14. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Yes. I don't know where he will dominate more, an edge or the middle. But I think he will be #1 within 2 years.
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    He does dominate in the sim. Canberra-Souths sim to confirm accuracy.

    I think the best players in the next 2-5 years will be Ponga, Taumalolo, TPJ and Munster. If I had to start a franchise and got 1 player to build a squad around it's either Ponga or TPJ.

  18. Toolman TR Man

    what about oates
  19. Toolman TR Man

    make that 2 high profile signings to replace Ferguson
  20. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Goates is still the best winger of all time.
