Fuck I hope Seibold isn't a one season wonder. First thing we've gotta fix is the defence though.
And the second is organisation.
The Hayne to Dragons talk is odd. I always thought the talk of his attitude problem was a bit over blown, but his record post NFL isn't good. Titans seemed to be improving before he got there, then everything went to shit and he fucked off, now one year back 'home' and he's being shopped around.
Talent/creativity wise he's a good fit for the Dragons, but it seems a bit risky.
Which won't happen with Macca, Niko and Milf.
With a fit/brunette Widdop, I don't think he is tbh...
lol quality ...
I actually think the Tigers might be the best fit for him in the left centre spot.
Yeah but I think he'll just bail to overseas union for the $$$ now that he can't play for Parra.
I actually think that Hayne is more suited in the 6 in the current climate.
Stoked at prospect of Josh McGuire to Cowboys.
So it appears Jarryd Hayne is not the only fullback with fanciful lifelong dreams.
McGuire leaving seems so weird. I guess they are hoping they can keep TPJ, Fifita, Su'a, Carrigan etc instead. They have more potential than McGuire, but who we need experience too. I think Gillett might be the only regular over 25, off the top of my head?
Valentine Holmes wanting to play NFL seems like a dud. If Hayne couldn't make it, I really doubt Holmes can, even if he went 3 or so years earlier than Hayne did.
And Hayne is now one step closer to playing Gridiron, like that shitty movie with Adam Sandler.
Napa ----> Bulldogs
Taupau ---> Roosters?
And prepare for more NFL dreams if they're willing to throw this much money around for a nobody let alone someone decent. I thought holding the ball was essential in the NFL? I guess they're in for a bit of a surprise when these islanders seem to train great but then cough up the lollies during the game under pressure.
"Rugged back-rower Kelepi Tanginoa and Kiwi-born Taniela Paseka have both secretly been trialling for contracts in the NFL.
Neither have distinguished rugby league resumes - but former South Sydney reserve grader Jordan Mailata has proved that is not necessary to make it in the NFL.
While league superstar Jarryd Hayne struggled in his brief NFL stint, 21-year-old Mailata, who has never played a top level league game, recently signed a four-year $2.5 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles."
Haha Mailata was a fucking shit cunt junior league player too. I was really surprised when I learned about him getting drafted. He didn't even know the rules either.
Mailata's playing at tackle though, his job is being a big cunt and stopping the other big cunts hitting his QB.
He doesn't need to hold the ball, or know which route to run etc.
Loving the salty Gallen tears. Could drink them up all day.
Mailata is going to be a fucking gun over there once he's settled in. He'll be the catalyst for a vacuum of players doing similar, and more than likely NFL scouts poaching youngsters far earlier. He'll be a good thing in that respect though as he went over and got told what position is best for him. All the knuckle head arm chair drongos watch his tape from over here and name just about every offensive position that handles the ball which could be good for him.
Holmes will more than likely do the aforementioned knuckle head arm chair drongo line of thinking, similar to Hayne, pursuing some disillusioned kick returner / running back fantasy. If I'm right, he'll bum out and be back playing for the Cowboys before you know it. He should do what Mailata did and attend their training camps and present his measurables and let them determine what position is best. For what it's worth, I think he'd make a decent safety if he spent the time to learn the position.
Bet you enjoyed those tears of joy at the Granny in '16
I think he'd be ok as a return specialist while he was learning the game better, but I could see him at safety long term
Problem is return specialists rarely make the final cut nowadays unless they are competent in another primary role.
