Do you mean Jake Simpkin our reserve 9?
He goes well, maybe another 2-3 years imo?

Tuki, is going to be a gun, maybe more so in ‘23 when Lucy moves on, never say never, but would be surprised if either would be let go?
No I do mean Tukimihia Simpkins. He is 20 years old end of month and Prop, Something we can build on

In terms of Hooker if we let go Api for 2022, We will have to start with Kenny and use either Sullivan or Smith for about 20 mins. But I do prefer to get someone in.

To play where? Our bench props Leniu and Sorenson is fine. We literally just won a gf with them coming off the bench. Why would we get a massive downgrade in hooker to get a young project prop who'd be more potential than anything else? If he's depth at the Tigers he'd be depth here.

We'd be trading one of our best starting players for a depth player. We already have promising up and coming middle forwards. Guyer and Hopgood.

We don't we let Api go over to Tigers early...get B Smith off storm for 2022 only? It's a win win for everyone..the only issue is storm want a player swap for Smith to let him go early

As happy as I am winning the comp, with the state of the rest of the league anything less than back to back would be tragic.
It's pretty ridulous to think we'll just walk over the other teams. Roosters have a gun side at full health, Storm's key player like Munster, Paps and Grant were uncharacistic in their match with us (and Welch and Cheese got injured mid match). The Eels pushed us pretty hard and will retain a similar team next year. Eagles have a lot of good young players on the up.

Brandom Smith a guy who set his asking price as 800K to a mil would be willing to come to us on Api's current contract money which is 420K? Continuity and game time together matters. Api knows Cleary and Yeo. They know Api. It's a gun middle attacking unit.

Roosters injury toll was overrated. They still had Tedesco and their best forwards. Keary is coming off an ACL injury so his running game will be a shadow of itself for the near future. Liu gone, Morris boys gone. Their team is losing leaders. If they're not old and battered they're a rookie.

Melbourne post Cam Smith can't win close games against good teams. Only four times a team took it to them through the middle and they folded all four times. Now on top of that they're losing Finucane. When a team gives them shit Hughes and Munster can't handle it. No spine.

Parra lol.

Manly can't beat good teams period.

Don't need to talk about Souths' losses.

We're zero chance of winning the comp playing in Parra with Api and Kikau having just left in '23 and '24 so let's take advantage of this golden period of transition of our rivals and shit stain of the rest of the comp, win a 4th and hibernate till we get back to our new stadium with the Ryley Smiths of the world accustomed to first grade so we can begin competing again.

I was thinking as he is still on the books at storm for 2022 they would offload him early but they'd want a player swap so we'd have to give up someone
