    Good luck with Papali'i guys. Hope he goes well for you.

    Not a game changer, but is pretty reliable. Sort of guy who you question if he even played and when you look it up he's got 30 odd tackles and 70-80 metres.

    Will be interesting to see where you play him.

    Sorry I don’t watch Eels games with Eels goggles on.


    Fergo played himself out of a jersey he was so poor.

    He considers himself a second rower, but is better suited as a lock/middle forward, Payten used him as a prop in the second half of this year.

    Considering you have better second row options (At least to start) then I'm curious to see what the plan is for him position wise.

    You reckon he might fancy a little wager?

    You reckon he'll be happy to give up anything less than four hundred grand a year to stay with his mates? He wouldn't even have to move out of his house if he joined the Dogs.

    Let's see what happens. Penrith always seem to keep guys they want.

    Do you think we are in with a shot?

    I'm not being pessimistic - I just don't think we will.

    If true, he would be great.

    I just doubt it's true.

    Their problem isn't keeping the guys they want, it's paying merkins to play for other clubs. Which they've had to do to 'keep the guys they want'. But the salary cap always comes back to bite them. Eventually you can't keep everyone on unders.

    Hope not. Sounds like he's actually watched him play.

    Who are they still paying? Blake i can tell you now was only for first 2 yrs so that's over. Rcg was for first 3 so yes him. The rest they are free.
    Tamous leaving will free up 750k also. They also let Maloney go a season early who was on 750k.

    Well there you go, there's all those right now, plus it's been a theme at Penrith for years now. Finally making a grand final doesn't excuse that.

    A transfer like this, he will end up at a shit club, not a good one. If he comes to Parra it won't be a good sign.

    If he ends up at fullback and plays well he will prove the experts wrong, and vindicate the dopes who think all you need at fullback is speed. If he goes somewhere and plays on the wing we'll know he's costing his new club a lot more than he was costing the Storm. Which will mean the Storm got better value out of him. Which is why they perform better on the field.
