    Crichton will be next. They have a high priority to get an extension done with him soon.

    The club must have high hopes for Crichton watching how they've been the last year and this.

    Not yet. He is still contracted till the end of 2021. If he usurps Luai before the year is out they will upgrade before the vultures circle.

    At the moment, he has outplayed Luai.

    A very high opinion of him. Other clubs too. When the Dogs signed his brother they made a sneaky play for Stephen too.

    As of last week a statemate.
    GM is playing his cards very close to his chest. If I hear anymore on him I will post.

    Not surprised. We've been hearing talk for what? 18 months about how good he is.

    I heard Tamou on Big Sports Breakfast this morning, didn’t catch the start of his interview and what I did catch I didn’t hear any discussions on his future so that may have been talked about in the first part? He spoke very well actually, as he is not a natural.

    I don't have anything against Tamou. He came good the longer he was here. Mostly I'm hoping for Lenui to get on the bench long term.

    I think Lenui will be starting before too long. He is a really top prospect.

    Tamou was a really good signing for us, his first season was a tad average, but he has got better, really consistent, rarely injured and never let’s us down. I think he would be worth a two year deal but I can understand his desire to secure his families financial future hence a three year deal in the UK is probably appealing to him. I happy to go with what ever he ultimately decides.

    I'm sitting on the fence re Tamou. Last couple of years he's been great for us. The Fish has taken over as the top front rower in the club. He is climbing fast and well. I'll go with what the club decides better to let him leave too early than stay too long. James Graham a good example of this. Playing his guts out but he is broken.

    I’d like Tamou for 1 more season, he’s great, but more than one and think he starts to take time away from the young blokes.

    Good point. His next contract is his retirement/superannuation pay day.

    I tend to think he would offer reasonable value at the right price but as you say James Graham is an example of a player who has clearly gone on a season or two longer than he should have. Not that I blame him given the money they earn. If I was in there position I would keep playing too if they kept on paying me the sort of money they are earning.

    That's a big claim. For all the trouble Mitchell has received in the media he's still world class.

    The laziness is overstated. There were games the Roosters played down the opposite side most of the time, the commentary would say he was not involved enough and was lazy and the myth was born.

    Even so we are talking raw natural talent. If Crichton is better than damn.

    I listened to the replay from the podcast. It is a good interview from him.
    I would say he certainly grown into the role as captain, quite a few at the club look up to him.
    He has gotten better with his interviews over time. I think being captain has brought him out of his shell a bit from a few years ago.
