It has been reported that Tigers and Eels are looking to sign him. Did we drop out of the chase for his signing. He would be an excellent addition to our squad
IIRC Gould said no winger in the NRL was worth $400k. I'd be quite surprised if Josh is even on that, especially since he re-signed when recovering from an horrendous injury which must have put his future under a cloud. Radradra would have been the exception. AddoCarr being the Origin winger pulls an extra $90k so the Storm don't need to pay him over $400k either.I agree that 500K a season sounds a bit much. If my memory serves me correctly. Gould told Josh Mansour that Penrith couldn't offer him any more than 400K a season and Mansour stayed. Hopefully Jennings does kick on and proves to be worth 500K a season plus.
Gould is a pathological liar, though. You can not afford to believe anything that comes out of his mouth. He is so thoroughly and utterly morally bankrupt that every time he smiles, an angel gets gonorrhoea.
Great let's have the slowest lock in the league. For Christ's sake he has prop written all over his bomb head. What is the next great idea, Hunt to prop to make way for Norman. PleaseA lock is often referred to as the 3rd prop. Props and the lock all defend the middle ground and mostly attack through the middle. These 3 players together should plug the holes in defence up the middle. They should also be the ones who run straight and hard up the middle.

@possm If De Belin is out, why not put Korbin Sims at lock? He can ball play... Lawrie should then be the bench prop, otherwise he wouldn't even be in the team next year as Mary would pick K Sims/Latimore/Leilua/utility for the bench, like it or not. Also it's wrong to pick Robson on the bench just for the sake of picking him. He needs to replace McInnes altogether, or not be in the team at all. No good playing musical chairs with the spine during the game. And what would you do if an outside back got injured early? I'm a fan of having a utility back who can play lock. But I'm not a fan of putting them on with 5-10 mins to go like Mary. If used properly, can add another dimention to the attack, and easier to replace injured backs. Who I would see as the utility is Joe Lovodua or Euan Aitken. And yes, JL should be promoted to the top 30.
Maybe Robert Jennings could play prop???Let's see! In my opinion we were always on first grade prop short last year then Ah Mau to NZ and we pick up K Sims a first grade prop. In my book we are still one first grade prop short so to put K Sims to lock we would be two first grade props short. Not a good idea. Lawrie is one of our bench props already but K Sims is a genuine first grade prop with experience at first grade level. Currently our prop rotation is:
You can just forget about Latimore and Allgood being relevant for first grade selection in 2019. Instead of buying so many outsid backs with potential, Maybe Millward should have purchased a genuine first grade winger and two first grade props. Aitken, Lafai, Allgood, Latimore, and Maranta are just stocking fillers. We have enough 'potential first graders' in Dufty, Field and other ISP players.
When it comes to Robson, he is our future at hooker and needs to be brought through to the first grade hooking position off the bench; increasing his minutes as the season progresses. He and Lomax are long term keepers.
