Gagai is clearly strongest on the left

Question is do we play him there and move Best to the right? Leave Best and move Gags to the right? Move Best to 2nd row?

Gagai has to play left centre.
I would play Best inside of him.
Hunt/Young/Lee on the right

Statistically Gagai was the best attacking centre in the NRL this year.

The One Pass Run stat shows he also takes a lot of the tough carries that a lot of centres like to avoid.

I daresay that's where Gagai might help us the most, doing the tough strong runs out of our own end.

I think some of those stats are padded and he's assisted by what the halves set up for him, but still he does well to capitalize on situations now.

Gagai set up as many for Walker than Walker did for him.

Knights fans will be watching our gun centre’s stats very closely with double digit tries and try assists a sure thing this season and a major part of the revamp to our attack and F/A.

South Sydney fans on the other hand will be acutely aware that they will struggle for points down their left edge now that their main man has moved to Newcastle. Can’t see Alex Johnson getting many meat pies in 2022 without a world class centre on his side of the park.

That said, I doubt South’s or Newcastle fans will have to live through Addo-Carr scoring 6 tries around one of their backs this year. Only happens once every 71 years - thank f**k!!!

Oh, absolutely no doubt that South’s will be much worse off losing a winger than their halfback, captain, goal kicker (one of the best ever) and one of the best, most consistent general play kicking games any side has had the past decade.

Playing into the line as Reynolds does is totally over rated too.

As said, Alex Johnson will be lucky to get to double figures on the try scorers list in 2022 without Gags there.

… and he most definitely will have in 2022 as well, won’t he?

You forgot to add he also let in the most tries (six) in one game for the past 71 years!!! 😂

G’Day Spot!!!

You edited your last message a million times 🥲🥲🥲

Someone is obviously worked up 🥲

It’s quiet sad for the last 4 years you have posted more in the Souths forum than the Knights forum trying to convince their fans how bad Gagai was.
You get more enjoyment out of that than the Knights winning.

I don’t want to derail this thread.
So if you want to discuss this further, you can hop on my live stream.
Happy to stream it to the LU community.

Come on Spot!!! Don’t be a dog!!! Hop on!!

Oh we’re in all the way baby!!!

How could we derail the thread when pointing out the obvious re Super Gags????

Expecting double digit tries and try assists from our gun centre (at the very least) - no excuses. The stats are telling us all he was South’s main man and he will definitely be ours too. No doubt.

Absolutely no waving in opposite numbers for up to 6 tries a match either. No way Jose!

In the leagues very best centre we trust.

Go Dane you good thing!

This is a strange thread. I feel like the arguments are at both extremes.. Gagai is utter rubbish and Gagai is the best centre.

He's good - that's it. He's upgrade and I'm happy to have him here if he can play like he has done so for Souths.

He was absolutely outstanding last season. Any other argument is garbage. The fact he genuinely wants to be here can only speak for his character. He will
Lead the backs and frankly he should absolutely roast anyone who is not putting in. He will also not back down if opponents are roughing it up.

Yep this is it. He's an upgrade on what we had and we desperately needed some attacking creation that doesn't come from Ponga. If Gagai can provide that then I'm happy to put up with the inevitable defensive lapses.
