Good signings. Really like Papali'i strong hard runner, good replacement for Evans.
My guess is he's a backup rather than top 17. Then again, what sort of deal would've been required to entice him home from northern England.
There is hardly any COVID-19 here and we'll pay for your quarantine might have done the trick.
Decent signings if they're minimum wage or thereabouts.
I’m sorry but if any of those signings are playing much next season we are struggling big time. And those signings are as good as it gets I can see us struggling to make the top 6.
Papali'i will be well above minimum wage you'd think. He has played 60 NRL games and is 22.
He’s rated highly. Will be top 17.
This joke is not funny these days. Maybe in the 90s or mid 2000s.
Yeah fair call. Interesting to see how he goes, I presume we're considering him for left edge and Lane to the bench and play in the middle.
Yeh I think so.
I actually watched the interview. I think he had one of those slightly confused moments at the end there where he got his thoughts and sentence slightly out wrong. I don't think you can read to much into it.
Your enthusiasm is infectious, never changes
So we need to sign Tedesco, Munster etc to keep you positive, the real world isn’t some fantasy league.
We're probably saving up all the trick signings til the end of the signing season.
f**k you, Seinfeld is always funny.
I’m sorry but I just can’t get excited about any of these signings.
Papali’i is a pretty solid player and will probably make our top 17 but the other two are Meh city. You want to wave some Pom Poms and have a bukkake party good for you. Not every one is on the BA cool aid.
We could be keeping them up our sleeve like BA’s super cool moves, he’s been keeping them up his sleeve for 7 seasons.
FB claiming Parra have made a a huge play for JAC. Prob BS but anyone heard? Perhaps to play as a centre?
Our bench was one of our main issues this year once the starting middles started to come off, the bench didn’t offer much at times.
Kaufusi is still young and developing. Marata was good but we needed someone else.
Papali’i potentially helps with this issue. Only 23 next year, good size (offers a different body shape), is a decent runner, can play edge / middle, and some experience with 60 or so games. Still young with improvement in him.
good smart signing.
the others are depth with the potential to push for a top 17 spot. Can’t complain with them.
Good show. Get him and then decide where he plays I reckon. Lie to him if necessary
Even if we get one of them lucky draws?
