    Dont agree, sorry, tatola should start or even knight, arrow is purely a backrower or lock

    Would be wrapped if we sign Arrow but also can't see the Titans letting him go tbh.

    If he or Brimson were to leave then you may as well wind that club up. Really... Those two should be the foundation stones on which that club rebuilds it's talent pool going forward.

    I think you're dreaming if you reckon Gagai is going anywhere tbh.

    He has been our most versatile and durable back for the last couple of years. We'd be crazy to let him go.

    I was not expecting that response but I like it. Most Souths supporters are happy to see the back of Gagai.

    Thankfully they aren't the people actually running and coaching the team. Those people actually see the value in him.

    Good enough to start at prop for Queensland but not Souths. Ok champ.

    I am also expecting Tom Amone to be a regular front row option in 2020. I think you will see him step up to nrl week in week out and wouldn’t be surprised if he became a starting prop by mid season.

    Yes Qld didnt have a decent option, and they lost,all his club games are in the backrow anyway,why play him out of position?
    Besides to move him would take nearly a mill and im not sure he is worth that,yes good player workaholic in defence, which we lack in, but limited in attack

    All his club games have either been at lock or prop.

    In most cases, lock is basically an extra prop nowadays anyway. We are one of the few teams where that is not the case but if we bought Arrow he would probably be a prop.

    No way he takes the lock spot off Murray.

    He’s hard core. Might disagree, but the guy deserves respect.

    So if lock and prop are pretty much the same we’re happy for Murray to play prop then?

    He did but I don’t totally agree
    Eg huge 125kgs props have bugger all agility or lateral movement and puff out after 20 mins where most locks are not only smaller but more agile way better lateral movement and play big minutes
    Just because someone is a mod doesn’t automatically make everything they say correct he’s just another punter with an opinion like the rest of us no disrespect DKOR :call_me:

    At least half the locks in the NRL also play prop from time to time. They defend in the middle third which is where the props defend and only a few of them play 80 minutes.

    There’s probably only three locks in the NRL who play a more mobile game. Murray, Bateman and Radley. The rest are honestly extra props.

    A lot of players cover/move position when needed.

    if props and locks are played the same at clubs you’ll notice the mins are the same, the amount of hit ups are the same and the hit tips they take on the tackle count average out.

    Gallen was never a prop, first hit up from the kick off he got pushed back at origin level. Doesn’t happen to props all the time.

    anyhoo I rate Arrow, gets injured quite a lot and will be after a pay rise. I’d rather get Shannon Boyd tbh.

    The only difference between prop and lock at a lot of clubs is the lock plays 60+ minutes.

    There is absolutely no value in a 750K winger who can not tackle and is no good at centre or 1.

    You can not play him in the centres. He gets ripped apart regularly, creates next to nothing and does not get over the stripe.

    Zero value.

    Bennett would be insane to keep him.

    Time to cut him loose and get some $$$ back. Play a bloke who can run a bit and not tackle on the wing for 250K a year. And that is close to an upgrade, especially if he has some idea how to defend.

    That is called a no brainer for the people actually running and coaching the team.

    Surely everyone finally realised this after the semi final this year in which he was shredded.

    You replace weak links in the chain. Not pay them close to marquee money.
