    I’d take David Nofoaluma in a millisecond. Specialist winger with no illusions of any other position and more bang for buck than JAC.

    Too much sideways running. JAC is a match winner, David not so much.

    One has had the advantage of playing for the Storm, easier to look better on the end of that backline.

    No substitute for speed. He has it in bucketloads.

    Nofo is no slouch either. JAC is the better player but he’d be after silly money IMO. If we can get Nofo for 400/50k we’d probably be ahead.

    Easier to be a match winner when you’re part of a team that constantly wins.

    He did f**k all to help NSW in game 3 this year. Where were his match winning qualities there?

    Why are we still talking about this JAC dream?

    Especially seeing we have exhausted our 1 Dickhead rule for 2021 with Cartwright.

    They would've gotten out of their end of the field a lot easier. That reduces pressure on their kickers and creates more opportunities for everyone else.

    I have said it once and I'll say it again. JAC will never come to Parra and BA will never want him. Nofa will be way cheaper and will provide the same or similar value/impact.

    Who’s mentioned we should chase him? I only said David runs sideways and JAC is a match winner.

    Do you think they would’ve lost worse if he was?

    We had Kenny Edwards and Corey Norman in the same team at one point. Has the policy been tightened?

    Watch this and tell me, have you ever seen JAC barge over the line or make a decent hit up consistently. Most of the time when JAC is close to the sideline he ends up over it.

    I never said he’d win every game. I said he’s a match winner. Turns half a chance into points.

    Oh you mean in hypothetical land? Yeah sure, of course they would've won.

    Something that is missing here though is JAC's superiority in defence, specifically his cover defence, his kick chase, and his kick coverage. Mofoaluma is a better all round attacking winger but he's a liability in defence.
