    No, that was just a terrible joke on the part of Matt Johns.

    Now way Morgan to winger. He is our best centre. If anything Loko should go there.

    Loko doesn't seem like the kind guy who would be able to defuse opposition attacking kicks.

    It's Maitua's last season with us, after that I can see Loko moving into the back row and Morgan back into the centres!

    I'm sure he re-signed last year (Reni).

    I know its one of the lame dad jokes here but with Loko Morgan Vai and Hoppa looking like being here next year (and their preferred positions being in the centre's) there has to be more then a good chance that Loko would be pushed in to the wide running 2nd rower with 1 of the three still playing out of position on the wing?

    Yeah Reni has a year to go. For all the talent Loko has, has he actually crossed the line and scored this year? Or set up his outside man for anything? He's devastating running the ball no doubt, but he doesn't seem to have the finishing or creative skills to play in the backline.

    Very hard to find any space and do something creative with a set defensive line in front of him

    Well of course, but we've seen what Morgan do this year with little space by just turning his opposition player inside out and wrong footing him to get over the line.

    Oops, got them mixed up. All these English guys look the same to me.

    probably have to swap Mossop and Hock around.

    It's amazing how quickly Toutai has gone from being the worst Eels player ever (Excluding Ben Roberts), to a mainstay of the side for years to come.

    Ive not seen alot of the UK Super League, but can sometime tell me if Hock is more suited as an Edge or Tight Backrower?

    You dont see Pritchard as a genuine star in he 9 by 2015? Surely we havent signed a guy for years that we only ever see as a back up dummy half?

    Who said anything of the sort? He certainly copped some flack for his dodginess under the high ball, but that's fixable. Sure you are thinking about Tautai instead?

    There was rumblings after his first game and his couple of howlers (inc the pass/tap back to Hayne in his own in goal), and he copped it from all and sundry after his 3-4 errors the following week against the Roosters.
