    Sans Souci, Leeson is a decent player, he is still only young. Like what Tal said, he hasn't kicked on this year and we have a few kids coming through the Toyota cup that will be making the step up to first grade next year so I guess we had to lose someone. He should be pretty handy for you blokes.

    Sounds ok.

    Is he the better Ah Mau?

    Definitely.

    His brother is a good solid QLD Cup player, he won't let you down, but at 29 he doesn't really have a future in the NRL.

    1. He can call himself whatever he likes.
    2. What commentators call him and what he calls himself are different things.

    I see Parker-Walshe is headed back to Townsville.

    Is he just playing bush league or is he looking to get back into the fold?

    Also what's the go with Sam Foster? Didn't see him listed in the NYC photos. He didn't fall out of favour that quickly did he?

    Fairly sure he's still around, he was at the preseason training camp I know that much.

    Resigning JT2 is a massive coup for the club IMO.

    Got some pretty good mail that you guys have signed Coote. Official announcement tommorow.

    Although I reckon Ulugia/Santo need another year or two (and with Gash retiring can be brought in slowly) I'm really not that keen on Coote. Was probably a long shot but getting Hoffman would've been great.

    All things even, I reckon Coote would be the better buy. His asking price would be significantly lower you'd have to imagine and there really isn't that much difference between the two. Hoffy is a very committed well rounded player but his ball play leaves a lot to be desired and he doesn't possess the necessary speed or bulk to make up for it.

    Apparently Souths signed Grevsmuhl? Can anyone confirm this?

    And can anyone tell me if he's good? Cheers

    According to a very reliable source on the stampede he has.

    Good player, was rated just as good as Taumalolo in the 20s and not sure what has happened with his development, others would know a lot more. But IMO he has potential to be a gun dont know why he would sign with souths as thats a hard pack to crack into.

    Probably leaving because Henry is an incompetent f**k who cant develop junior talent.
