Congratulations to Liam Knight for being selected in the emerging blues squad. Now his name has been thrown in to the serious mix.
And you have done a good job mate,not like some bs on another site who spend a lot of time trolling!
You couldn’t ask for two better players than Arrow and Murray to be leading our forward pack for years to come.
Except maybe Fifita Sam Burgess Arrow and Murray.
Well done to Cookie, Murray, Cody and Roberts on being included in the Blues December squad!
In the emerging Blues squad Knight and Campbell made it, well done to them also.
Also in the future Blues squad well done to Joseph Suaalii for making it.
A massive congrats to all 7 of our boys!
Also just look how many on that list have previously played for Souths too!
This is a great opportunity for Knight to develop into an elite player. Great environment for growing in skill and confidence. Souths will benefit from this
Big Jack would have said, Doin good son. Keep Up ya good work and we'll see what happens. Lol.
I think he's (Liam Knight) the new leader of Souths forwards, have thought so for some time, so while everybody's been raving about Arrow, Fifita etc I just chuckle.
Interesting about Cody but I like the approach from the club. I really want Walker to stay and I think the club does too but we have to play hard ball here. If Cody had carried on his early 2019 form, I'd have no issues giving him $850k but the fact is, he is yet to produce a fully consistent, brilliant Season week in, week out so I agree he's not worth that figure. Like I say, I'd love for him to say but this is the right approach from the club.
A few Arrow rumours coming through,
Jai Arrow's next NRL move a done deal: https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/jai-ar...angaroos/d3f91933-375d-4a59-81f7-5e5899e7fe83
That is absolutely fantastic news if true!! I'd love that, especially if we could get him for 2020. However, I've never been convinced with the Mole so I'll take what he says with a grain of salt.
NRL Transfer Whispers - In-demand Arrow drops huge hint over future: https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...s/news-story/d4228c12a1a9d112c024993b8a76c087
It's this that also makes me question if it's a done deal with us. if it was, why would he say his preference is to stay with the Gold Coast?
I don’t think the Arrow supporters would disagree with you. But I think most are saying that we need someone like Arrow to add to our pool of forwards. And with Sutton and two Burgess’s gone we have room for several players with leadership qualities.
Like to think you are right however. If Knight can be a standout week in and out he will certainly Souths prospects for 2020
Completely agree re Cody.
Like you bro I’ll believe it when my members email comes re Arrow.
I also found it strange he said his preference is to remain up there.
Rumour around that Sam’s salary cap dispensation will be approved soon.
Let’s hope this is true guys.
I’m feeling pretty confident we will get Arrow.
I just don’t understand how some say he will replace Sam Burgess, Arrow is very good but for mine doesn’t replace the whole package that was Sam. Maybe Arrow can get close to that in future but right now Arrow is not that.
Just like talk is if we get Fifita we have replaced Sutto some have said on various sites and social media in general. I disagree as they are different styles of players, Sutto brought a real leadership to us and had ball playing as well as a kicking game where he could even get repeat sets for us even from playing second row plus of course he’s a Souths junior and lives and breathes our club. We just can’t replace Sutto, imo someone will take his jersey as I said many times but not replace him. In fact I don’t know if some realise how much we will miss Sutto, oh well for those that think he’s not much of a loss they’ll soon see in 2020 and change their tune.
To me, Arrow will replace Sam in terms of leadership and quality work ethic. Someone else will have to step up as an enforcer in Sam's absence, probably Knight.
Sam taking up an administrative role with the club for the next 10 years at 360k a year. Not a bad move by the club. He was a great forward in his peak and would add a lot in mentoring young players. He could help get more English players to our club as well. GI, Sutton and Sam were 3 of the biggest influencers on our club for the past decade so I think for them to have an off the field role with the club makes total sense. Good job South Sydney!
Make a good defence coach as well.
Not sure how payment works for medical retirements but could this be a negotiation between Souths, Sam and the NRL to get him off the cap?
Guys apparently Arrow is all but signed for 2020.
Separate names with a comma.
