    Has better potential but just hasn't really showed it with the Roosters. Has been stuck playing for the Wyong Roos all year.

    I remember Bronco's fans were tauting the brothers as the next big thing a while back.

    Jayden played well in the World Club Challenge last year, and was partnered for a handful of games with Jackson Hastings (?) in a side that eventually finished 15th.. he needs a fresh start somewhere. Was never going to get a look-in over a premiership winning foil in Keary.

    Kodi is made to look better than he is in the Broncos' system, him being promised any kind of starting spot next year will be like Copley being told Hodges' vacant centre spot was his.

    Jayden Nikorima was rumoured to the Catalan Dragons earlier in August.

    Never liked him - weird his older brother was a proud junior Kiwi and Kiwi but Jayden was a Queenslander

    Shane Richardson has denied Dane Gagai is rethinking his decision to go to Souths. Also unless Gagai has a opt out clause in his contract If Michael Maguire isn't the coach he doesn't have a case. Richardson claims Gagai is very happy going to Souths and has a good relationship with Anthony Seibold from his time working with him playing for Queensland.

    "The NRL Lurker is reporting Dane Gagai is a chance to remain with the Newcastle Knights after Michael Maguire leaving the Rabbitohs. Maguire was reportedly a huge reason for Gagai joining the club."

    The NRL Lurker has the worst credibility I've seen out of any media source. Only good for lols.

    Better than Hoffman and Ayshford.
    And if they get Green he'll be better than Foran too.
    And they've already signed Harris.

    No need for Kata either which is a big plus if we sign Hiku.

    Despite the jokes I'm actually happy with the Warriors recruitment this year. They need more pros and guys who will do the 1 percenters.

    Harris > Hoffman
    Beale/Hiku > Kata/Ayshford
    Pulu > Gubb
    Blair > Lillyman

    Those are all upgrades IMO. The only thing we're missing is someone to replace Matulino's go forward.

    We only kept teams under 20 points 5 times this season, and we won all 5. We don't need more flashy all style no substance players.

    Now just watch Kearney turn down Green because he feels Hiku is a 6.

    Are they really upgrades???

    Seems to me they cut blokes who don't tackle and replaced them with.... blokes who don't tackle ie Beale and Hiku.

    Beale and Hiku could both lose a leg in preseason and still be better than Kata....

    So yes, they're upgrades.

    And if it also forces Maumalo off the wing where he has no business being then there's a nice flow on effect.
