    I have no contacts at all, and no inside knowledge - but I reckon if injuries and/or suspensions hit, then Davey will get a go.

    And I reckon he won't let us down, either - he is all heart, Andre Davey. He's a big lad, with a big ticker - I quite like him.

    Of course, he's competing for an edge forward position against Shaun Lane (one of the form edge forwards of 2019), Ryan Matterson (fringe NSW Origin player), Brad Taikarangi (for all his flaws, he is experienced, and very skillful), and Marata Niukore (more of a middle player, anyway, imo).

    But you'd assume that, at some stage of the season, that one, or more, of those guys will be unavailable, and Davey may well get a chance.

    I reckon he is on more then that (and his market value is probably more to), however $300k is still to much for a back up centre.

    Anyhow this report suggests he is on $1.5 m over 3 years:

    We have a fullback.

    Scott is massively overrated and a bit of a complete knob from reports

    You reckon Andre Davey will be first choice?

    Stefano named as a development player. I assume BA wont be able to play him untill rnd 17. I was a little suprised.

    Any idea how old Rhys Davies is and also who is our back up hooker?

    Stefano is gone by the looks.


    So glad we locked up the likes of Stone and Davey first.

    Yeah I heard a friend mention Tigers where gunning for him but I reckon all fluff. I doubt BA let's him go.

    I heard the same, time for O’Neill to start locking our promising rising stars. Mahoney and Drown are free agents as well atm.

    Definitely not a euphemism.

    In the end with those 2 it did feel like we were providing the beatings rather than receiving them

    Dylan, Mahoney and Stefano are all unsigned for 2021. Even Mennings for this year.

    Must be that O'Neill is hopeless. Couldn't be any other reason I'm sure.

    Why do you assume that Stefano is gone? He's nowhere near ready to play NRL regularly at the moment. His leg speed is awful.

    It is. I watched plenty of Wenty and Mannah outshone them every game.
    Terepo didnt have anymore impact in NSW cup or NRL however so it can be hard to gauge. But Stefano and Kafusi do have a lot of drive once hit defense.
    Like you said leg speed and acceleration is a concern. But that could change with an off season.

    I reckon there is more to Stefano's signing delays than meets the eye (or at least reaches the public).
