    Brad seems to work wonders with forwards.

    Not for the rest of 2020.
    The player transfer window is closed so Tevita isn't playing any more football in 2020 unless it's for the Broncos.

    New Zealand has the most cash to splash and have made it known it wants to firm their up its forward pack up by chasing Kane Evans, Jack de Belin and Adam Elliott. Potentially they could even seek an immediate “loan” of Pangai Jr if the NRL and Pangai Jr were open to it.

    Maccas attendant: “Are you interested in a hash brown for $1 with your latte?”
    (Weidler muffled yelling from outside Maccas: “Hey Robbo, are you interested in TPJ?”)
    Robbo: “Not interested.”

    The whole story is fabricated IMO. Everyone would be interested in a hashbrown with their coffee for $1

    He’s really come good last year and so far this year after a very bad first year. Disappointed to see him go. I guess you got to take the better offer.

    Lol

    Hindy111 lets us know that he has heard a rumour that TPJ is Roosters-bound, and nekk minnit, Weidler is saying that he asked Robbo is he wanted TPJ at his club...

    If that's not evidence that rugby league journalists read these forums...

    Lol!

    I can't blame Evans for taking the opportunity.

    It's crucial we replace him with someone of similar ilk; I have felt that RCG and Junior do an excellent job starting the games for us, but when they go off (and especially during the period where Evans was injured), we lose a little oomph up front.

    I don't know who is available, but we need to replace Evans with another powerful runner.

    He's proved throughout his entire career that he can provide little more than 20-25 minutes in the middle of the game (albeit, he is pretty handy in those minutes). But he's a definite downhill skier (which incidentally we have plenty of already). He will just embarrass himself at the Warriors, but good luck to him, he wasn't going to get much by staying at Parra.

    I am NO Pangai fan let me tell you. But I have seen some things he can do which are elite esque... if Kane Evans is on circa 400-450 ish, why couldn’t we potentially look at a Pangai for an extra couple hundred? Surely his ceiling is higher.

    As I said I’m no fanboy but I think he is an example of someone who is poorly managed, I’d love to see what BA could do with him as a project not to mention him learning off true leaders like RCG and Jnr.

    I think Kaufusi has been earmarked as jersey 15. Niukore has leapfrogged Kevans as our first picked benchie as it is. I think Stone will be on the bench somewhere. So if Kaufusi is in our top 17 as it is this year, then we need to replace Kaufusi. Hopefully we can replace him with someone better than Kaufusi is this year, because I think there’ll be a talent gap between Kevans’ output this year & Kaufusi’s next year

    Kaufusi will be better than Evans. The only area he'll never match up in is height.

    Wow...just...wow.

    I mean, as fans, that's fair enough.

    But one would have to assume that they would use this forum for their "research "...

    Will he be better than him within 6 months?
