    Lafai is too slow. Is Simona the guy that was banned for betting on games?

    No to Lafai..would rather play a young bloke like Penisini. Plus Opacic i think is first choice then in no particular order Dunster, Oldfield and Fergo. So really for the left centre spot there are potentially 5 players i would play before lafai..

    Yeh but you can put Penisini etc on a development contract. Lafai would be a 2nd tier deal and would have no impact on the your options for the players you mention.

    They would've been creating cap space, not discarding him because he's not good enough. He's not even 30 and he's won 88 NRL games. No chance we'd get him outside the top 30. He would start in our team for sure.

    So by using Pou’s useless BS analogy Lafai is now really shit.

    Glad we all cleared that.
