    I’m sorry, I’m not exactly sure what you are saying.

    What size shirt do you take?

    Scary how many spots we need to fill by the end of month cut off. Great to promote some juniors to full time squad but I defs feel some plod incoming to fill the remaining spots. Unless there is some seriously hush conversations happening. Unlikely

    Kade Ellis was also leaving Panthers. I seen Mansour on Instagram wished him luck in his next venture.

    Hi Dragonsamy. Got the following from the Panthers website:-

    "Hailing from Dubbo, Ellis is a product of the Panthers junior pathways system and was a member of the club's premiership-winning NYC side in 2015. His man-of-the-match performance in the 2017 ISP State Championship game meant Panthers could celebrate a memorable double after also sealing the ISP premiership a week earlier. In 2018 Ellis was appointed captain of the Panthers ISP side and went on to make his NRL debut".

    He is 23, height is 191cm, weight 106 kg.

    Looks like Kaide Ellis is a done deal for a Mid yr switch

    Also briefly heard on Triple M that St George have missed out on Addo Carr for next yr

    May get a run as a bench forward at the Dragons. It appears that he has gone down the pecking order at the Panthers with the likes of Billy Burns and Spencer Leniu ahead of him. Best of luck to him.

    Shame if they let Host go. He is worth keeping but the rest I have no dramas seeing the back of

    I sussed his profile. Think he may be under 110kg. If he has a bit of leg drive might suit the faster game. Might work out as a cheaper k Sims. Who for mine has been really disappointing overall.

    Ellis aligns with our recruitment MO.

    An average player who can't get a start at another club, happily released to come to us.

    All we do these days is wait for rejects, there is no active recruitment happening.

    Unfortunately we have no choice. David Fifita’s are just not coming. To be quite honest, Ellis is a tough country boy with good size and skill. With a good coach he could end up being a handy pickup. As a like for like replacement for Graham he’s actually not too bad at all, will certainly give us more go forward than a 400 game old Graham could.

    Congrats on the win over the gummies, thanks for wiping the floor with them at Kogarah. It’s not their home ground.

    We really need to stop buying at the Reject shop. Why they don’t try Big W or Lowes is astounding.:joy::joy::joy::joy:

    The reality is the Calm One is right.

    No one is coming until McFlop leaves.

    As for those that are expected to depart, I would attempt to retain Sailor, Host and Aitken.

    Sailor should be given at least 8 consecutive games at 6.

    Host should be given a run as an edge forward running off Clune.

    Aitken has defended better on the left side. I would keep him as the back up left centre.

    Williame is a fill in until we produce a gun left centre.

    Luke Lafai Graham all mid season departures - how is supercoach feeling now that "his team ' are now looking for opportunities . broncos and dogs hardly setting the comp alight . These moves will save us $$$ but how do we fill our squad up ?? Its NO use signing plodders for anything more than the season and realistically players outside the 19 are not going to get a look in by supercoach SO do we just keep promoting our junior talent into the vacancies ? the only negative would be a total lack of experience for 2021 ... BUT maybe this is exactly what the new coach wants ( LETS HOPE)
