Just when you think things can't get any worse, Sione is saying he wants to come back to the Knights next year.
Yeah nah, let's stick with Brodie Jones then.Signing a 28 year old who was never any good because he's from Newcastle sounds about right.
I'll start stocking up on TV remotes to smash against the wall I guess.
This is pretty true, doesn't move the needle much in addressing our biggest issues.Does he play hooker? If not, does it really matter if he signs or not? We're still going to be a bottom 4 side.
But this is your irrational hatred blind spot, so I get it.
It's more a matter of what the market and our depth can provide us in those roster spots. If there's better (realistic) options, sure of course i'm in favour of that.He turns 27 in a month, so would be 28 next year. Also, he was never that good to start with. And still has issues with concussion.
More than anything it would show a total lack of ambition. We already told him he wasn't good enough and to hit the road, we should be aiming much higher for a Brodie Jones replacement, either in the market or rolling the dice trying to develop kids.
Very shallow yeah. Hopefully KPP will improve things there and doesn't turn out a dud.Sione always had talent and potential but unfortunately came into a side on the slide and was grossly mismanaged by Stone and Browny. Should never have been taken off the wing until he had his feet under him in first grade
Ive watched a fair bit of him playing for St Helens, including the WCC, and imo he has matured as a backrower and would offer good value as a depth forward. He could probably fill in in the centres if needed too. Wouldnt hurt having a guy around the club who has been in a genuine winning system for awhile and is looking to be in Newcastle for reasons other than $
Our depth chart for edge forwards is pretty shallow right now too
Was skeptical seeing his profile as a 175cm, 95kg backrower but saw some highlights and he’s got abit of something about him, would be a decent bench option as I’d imagine he could probably cover centres and maybe even abit of hookerI’d be having a look at James Bentley from Leeds. He is OC. He is a smaller backrower but he is very athletic and strong. He is a real firebrand type. Very much in the
mould of John Bateman. Wants an NRL gig and was the player who Radley fought at the end of last year.
Seeing the standard for f our hooked play has set the bar pretty low.And we thought it was only Obi wanting to make everyone a hooker
