    SM, I like your comments and was very keen on Roberts last time around but this doesn't quite gel with my recollection....
    Roberts had 3 clubs after him and he ruled out the Dragons first, a few weeks before he decided on the Broncos.
    Sorry, can't recall which club was his 2nd choice but it wasn't the Dragons.
    Its why I would hesitate to sign him.... Dragons offered him the best deal iincluding $400K or $450K, and he dismissed the offer and signed with the Broncos for much less (as if!)

    I believe that second club was Souths; you're 100% correct, Roberts quickly ruled out joining SGI.

    Are The rumours about Mansour wanting out from Penrith real or just crap. Would he be a fit for us.

    Mansour would be a huge improvement on our current wingers, but would prefer to give the young guys the opportunity to secure a FG spot or 2.

    They are currently cheap and have been outstanding representative players as juniors thus far.

    They won't all make it but we are well placed in virtually every backline position with 2-3 quality juniors preparing to compete for each position from 1-5.

    Mansour is good, but I feel what we need is a speedy, bounding winger along the lines of Koroibete, Ferguson (though more of a centre) or Radradra

    Still an improvement on both of our wingers.

    Mansour would be an excellent signing.

    Mansour would be a huge signing. Hits the line like an axe, strong defender, can pass a bit and is good under the high ball.
    Firstly the rumour he wants out has to be real. Secondly, we have to be on the lookout. A lot needs to happen.

    I think Mansour would be good for any club but I think he would cost a fair bit of money for a winger in which we should spend on another good front rower or centre.

    Mansour is an ex Saints junior who left in his mid-teens.

    Fair comment there, LG but I'm concern whether we can fit his beard under our cap!

    He is a proud Australian - Lebanese. We would just have to convince him to go Brazilian.

    Certainly got some beard.
    My son-in-law had one similar but not as long.
    Always appreciate someone who says they are proud Aussies, regardless of their heritage.
