    Prior is a very good long minutes middle player. Think he'd be a good buy. Pretty cheap too.

    I keep hearing rumours that josh Reynolds might come over from the dogs. Apparently farah really rates him from their time together in origin, and is helping to make it happen.

    I guess it's planning long term for GI. Madge doesn't rate AJ as a 1, and walker would move back there with J Reynolds to 6.

    Madge has put AJ at f/b so he must have some degree of confidence.

    It's only early days for him but I reckon he went well against Manly & hopefully he will continue to display aplomb & consistency.

    He has a whole season to settle in & prove himself so the ball's in his court!!

    Prior would be handy IMO. Reynolds??????????? Not so sure.

    I don't really see where Josh Reynolds would fit, Cody doesn't have enough pace to be considered as a long term solution in the #1 imo.

    Don't like Reynolds as a 5/8. Reckon he'd be a reasonable hooker but we have that spot covered.

    Plus he's a grub and I don't like him so I hope this is wrong.

    I'm surprised the Sharks aren't after him. He would be the ideal Ennis replacement.

    Has anyone seen Reynolds play hooker? His pretty crap at it. His service from dummy half is pretty poor. His strengths are his running, he is unpredictable and he never stops trying things, that would be unsuited to hooker. He is more like a traditional 5-8, and I think he'd thrive being teamed up with a guy like Reynolds similar to how he thrived having hodkinson run everything at the bulldogs. As for him being a grub, every team needs grubs.

    I think we're fine for spine players. I'd really like us to pick up a winger or prop.

    I think Burns will prove to be an ample replacement for Joe.

    Reynolds is one of the most passionate players in the NRL. He is so competitive and it's fantastic. There should be more players like him in the game. I would love to fit him in but I don't see where we could. Unless walker makes a long term switch to fullback but I'm definitely not for releasing walker for Reynolds. Maybe walker can play in the centres? f**k who knows what they would be planning if they recruited Reynolds.

    I don't want Josh Reynolds to make the "trip" over here. :)

    See what I did there?:);)

    Is Cody walker really a great number 1 though? Maybe he could really shine back there with a full pre season of training.

    Very clever callmack.

    If Souths didn't need Keary, why would they need Josh R?

    Don't want or need Josh Reynolds. Too unreliable for me. He's a year older than Cody and nowhere near as good. Only quality he possesses is aggro and competitiveness which 90% of the time comes off poorly.

    Manly rumoured to be chasing George and Tom for 2018.

    Wouldn't be the worst thing that's happened to us IMO

    They wouldn't really be able to give us anything good in return though.

    Besides Taupau and J. Trbojevic I don't rate their pack.

    What we'd get in return is cap space that is currently wasted on the bench and in reserve grade
