    Maybe it’s because we never look settled.

    Claiming he used to play prop, and going by what he now watches on tv, I’d say marriage isn’t agreeing with him :rofl:

    How stupid do we look in this.

    December 18 - Burgess Rejects Parra
    Feb 19 - Burgess rejects Parra again!

    The point is gallon is considered one of the biggest hogs, yet eels fans highly rate brown, when he is just a poor mans gallon.

    at least we are going after players that can improve our squad, not like Carl Webb, Chris Walker, Chris Hicks etc

    George is anything but a slug, can motor when he wants. Talking about big humans, went to Titans training yesterday and Shannon Boyd was doing laps near me, in rehab at moment, he is a big human. Another much bigger than I thought was Ryan James, big and tall, also in rehab. Seems unlikely to be fit opening games of season as struggling to walk.

    It would not of got past his manager if Burgess was not interested.

    Souths would be paying more than $400k to the Burgess boys, or if they are because its a long contract coming to its end, they'd be paying much more in 2020 to keep him. And $700k for a world class prop is not that much.

    I thought they went there for a similar climate.

    BA will pick Mannah over Kaufusi, guaranteed. I'd prefer Kaufusi, bigger body, and needs the experience. Likely to break a tackle, Mannah less likely.

    It's not a straight swap. BA will be correct to pick Mannah, and Kaufusi can gain experience coming off the bench this year.

    And once again is it entirely the fault of a forward looking for more work or the hooker, halves and coach???


    In the trial game on Friday night Alvaro got tackled a lot in the red zone and a few times late in the tackle count. Is he selfish as well???

    More rejections than a young Hiney at his first blue light disco.

    Yep, so you just can’t blame Brown or Alvaro.

    Friday night looked like more of the same, pretty disappointing If that’s the best they can come up with after a full of season.
