Which is why we need to get a backup 7 from somewhere
We have halves got cleary luai burton blore may what we need is some big fast outside backs and a decent prop or 2.
Rothfield has us chasing JWH on a 3 year deal. I’d prefer 2 years.
Id prefer we dont sign him at all im sick of blokes using penrith as a retirement village 1st petero then kite then tamou now jwh seriously when will they learn.
Tamou on balance has been a good signing, he also came to us when he was 27. Hardly retirement age.
Came in his prime. Has had two average years and this year has been quality. I think JWH is just JFHlite at this point. Would much prefer Welch.
JWH will make our discipline worse not better... no disrespect but JWH is a dud signing these days
As I said last week, I'm always hesitant signing blokes who have won comps at successful clubs for their final big pay day.
If we sign him we'll regret it. He's achieved what he wants and just needs the paycheck now.
JWH has NZ or Titans all written all over him.
We just need a depth forward signing and to spend the real cash out wide.
Brisbane and Melbourne have a huge nursery of hard-working, talented forwards that we should be looking to poach. They can’t keep them all. Surely there will be one or two that want to play bigger minutes or more regular NRL footy that would be willing to move. But that kind of astute, tactical signing seems to be beyond us as a club.
I’m with Daz. Sick of the Panthers being the club that players come to for their final NRL payout.
Right now JWH gets protected by the sombrero mafia and he still gets suspended regularly. Imagine how much time he will spend on the sidelines if he plays for the Panthers. It will be Kikau on Nicholls every time… That might work for some players at the end of their career though. Three years of part-time footy on huge pay.
Jai Arrow would be a way better signing. Welch too.
Jai Arrow will get 750k+ and I think playing props anything over 500k is kind of silly, we've already been burnt by Merrin and Tamou (decent players but 750k each is massive overs for both)
I think Welch would be good if we can get him. Need to look at some signings for the backline as well.
Lucky it is a Buzz rumour... So won't come true
Unfortunately this is how successful clubs work. The players they get rid of are usually the ones they are done with and feel they can replace so they won't match contracts offered elsewhere.
Storm and Roosters in particular. Guerra, SKD, Sika Manu, Kevin Proctor, Dylan Napa etc. These sort of players.
There are exceptions, like RTS. However the Roosters ended up signing Tedesco anyway.
Welch re-signed with Melbourne.
All depends on how much he costs for mine. If he’s after a big payday, then no. If it’s $400k then I think it can work.
Who was the young qld second rower that we reportedly signed? Supposed to be quick.
