This post hits the mark for me.The club must strongly believe Miller is going to deliver substantially better performances at the back than Gagai could. Hodgson isn't ready for NRL just yet.
I hope the lad comes here and kills it, but if not, Gagai can step in but geez what an embarrasment for the club. Trading a young promising player for an end of career reserve grader only to swap Gagai in there.
OB is betting the house on Miller working with Ponga at 5/8 and Hastings arriving and the whole shebang meshing together with OB's scintilating attacking play he is known for.
We are second favourites for the spoon only above the Dolphins.
Geez I'm glad I renewed my membership!
Would we honestly have been worse off just going with Gagai, Hodgson and even Mann at fullback this year? Instead of committing 3-years to a reserve grade player at the ripe age of 29 - and also giving up one of our under 20s rep players..
It just screams of madness and desperation. I've said it before and I'll say it again, sometimes I feel AOB is trying to sabotage because he knows he has one foot out the door. Probably extreme thinking but that's how this feels to me.
