    To be fair, you would fill up an encyclopaedia with the dodgy off field behaviour by NRL players. Dont think its exclusive to the Warriors. And thats just the behaviour we know about.

    I’m all in favour of getting him, he’s a huge upgrade... most of the other signings are meh though, and Matua has a point in general imo

    Yeah I'd say on average our boys have been no worse than most other clubs over the years.

    Kearney and Blair seemed particularly strong with managing off-field discipline, but they're gone now, or at least Kearney is.

    lets all not be naive here, the alleged cover ups that we are hearing about at Souths probably happen at every other club in some fashion. You just hope it never gets out.

    Culture is massively overrated these days. Win the premiership.

    Young kids with big $$$ is a recipe for disaster. We aren’t too bad though. If we can start winning more than we can also be more picky on who we choose. Given the last couple of years of the phone ringing hot it’s great to see some actual big signings

    In all seriousness beyond AFB who is a big signing?

    In relatively recent years we’ve had RTS, Harris, Luke, Foran, dare I say Blair..

    but agree the pack looks to have more about it and I’m hopeful we can start competing meaningfully for a finals spot... halves need a lot of work yet imo

    Contract year for Kodi, I'd expect him to have a massive year and try and get back to the Broncos set up.

    lol, good point...

    in general he's terrific when he runs, but needs to develop his game more generally - perhaps he could look at Wighton who's (differently) a terrific ball runner...

    CHT really needs work - hopefully the club, and he, can do it, but it's a longer-term thing...
