    St George Illawarra sign Penrith’s Kaide Ellis as replacement for James Graham for rest of season
    They have spoken to a host of players but the Dragons have finally settled on their choice to fill James Graham’s boots at Kogarah. But a lack of recent game time may delay his debut.

    Yea, a prime example of Millward's 'like for like or better' recruitment policy.

    My daughter is a Panthers supporter & when I asked her about him all I got was a shrug & I don’t know anything about him.
    Sounds promising :rolling_eyes::rolling_eyes:

    Another player who won't even get a run. Just what we need.

    Go and learn a new sales pitch or better still resign; he is not up to the job.

    Not a bad signing under the circumstances.

    If the report is correct its only for the rest of this season, so he'd have to show something to earn a contracy beyond that.

    Can play lock or prop, but is a bit of a lose cannon and has been sent off in a match previously. This at least shows some aggression.......maybe.

    At this stage very like for like with Graham.

    Brilliant...hasn't even played a game and our " Supporters " are ripping into him... And then you wonder why no one wants to sign up with us...LOL

    P.S All the Best Kaide.... just follow whatever Flanno and Shephard tell you and you will go o.k

    Shades of Patrick Kaufusi and Luke Page as mid season wonder signings by Millward & then vanished the following year

    yep. Because I’m sure players aren’t signing for us because us supporters are ripping into him on a forum that they never read. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact their careers will hit rock bottom playing for a dud coach in a dud team

    Sure mate. I’m sure we’re all hoping that he will be a gun. The issue is, this smells like another Patrick Kaufusi type signing where we signed an offload from another team who played like an offload from another team.

    Yeah. At least he's stabbed in the front by some on here. There's no need to go behind his back! Best if luck Kaide.
