I'm on the edge of my seat
I would suggest you always hold your breath
Just in case.......
i wonder if Gus knows
Hmmm seems like sound advice for a poster or 2 on here
Hoppa was never here/contracted for 2016. Before Jennings signed for 2016, Pauli was part of our squad. With Jennings on board, Pauli is released, so I still contend it's a case of Jennings v Pauli.
Under a salary cap system you can never keep everyone, and need to make decisions on how much to spend retaining certain people. With the size of Watmough's contract (and Foran's, and Jennings') some people will definitely leave, and it comes down to the club making the best choices. I prefer keeping Gower, because he covers Prop and Lock (and at a pinch wide Second Row) with solid defence, whereas Pauli is only semi-good at wide Second Row (with questionable defence).
The academy is just a hastag that 3P used to try and win votes. (And that Pou tried to use to justify why we should've kept supercoach Kearney... who really had nothing to do with anything in terms of future planning, since it apparently was all Nolan's doing back then anyway.)

Plus the fact that not all farts have aroma. A healthy dieted pillow biter with AIDS could spread all sorts of abomination amongst god fearing folk.
Well i think it's finally happened, this place has finally hit rock bottom :lol:
Time to bring back Big Bopper Eels bye bye thread
Agree with this, we always needed another decent signing in the centres for this year, and something has to give. That will always most likely be were the club believes we can afford to lose strength. I'm not happy losing Jnr. but outside backs was our greater need ATM.
Dare you to bump it.
Watmough was brought in to offer something that Paulo and Pauli will probably never be able to provide. Leadership is a buzzword to most people (and a dirty word to many), generally synonymous with management. But there are still workplaces where leadership is extremely important and very distinct from management, and the NRL is one such environment.
Also, the market wouldn't allow for Paulo and Pauli at the same price as Watmough. The latter was a broken down old warhorse when we signed him, and most clubs already have a few of those, meaning the demand wasn't as high. Players like Paulo and Pauli have huge potential, making demand high for these types of players. I'd say Paulo's next contract will be bigger than Watmough's current one. And Watmough is still a more valuable defender.
So very tempted to make this quote my sig. :lol:
Nah!! Seems like to much work.
Paulo and Pauli have strengths as well as massive weaknesses. I would prefer we keep the young forwards with less weaknesses, such as Moeroa, Alvaro, Pritchard (though his injury history indicates a weakness).
But more important than fetishising young players is keeping players who are in their prime (at the right price) - players like Radradra, Takairangi, Norman, Mannah, Peats, Edwards, Ma'u, and now Jennings and Foran.
Then there are the old heads like Gordon, De Gois, Wicks, Watmough, Scott and Gower, who are invaluable to maintaining culture, whether they take the field or not - so what they offer off the field is part of their price.
Can't say I've known any gay men, (not that I know of anyway), but over the past 16 years I've gotten to know and become quite good friends with a fair few gay women. Not relevant to anything just thought I'd put it out there.
Or at least drinking it.
Maybe they told you that to let you down gently ;-)
Your onto something.... Get two twins with the gay dna and cut ones foreskin off. - Lets ring mythbusters
