Looks lean now, his fitness has gone to another level, Are Saints are a more professional club which he needs?

No. He’s just wearing skin tight and darker clothing than he’s usual seen it. Besides,looking leaner won’t help his defensive reads or handling skills. Enjoy

IIRC he looked the same before last season.

However, It’s also no secret that we haven’t had the best conditioning set up for a few years which is why the club have brought in arguably the best in the business in thst department.

I think the key is what happens when he picks up an injury or the pre-season lens isn't on him.

The point above is correct that, alongside conditioning, it is his defence and handling that are issues. As far as defence goes, if he can't improve under Woolf he won't improve anywhere. Condititioning can help with both defence and handling too as tired players make more errors.

It willl be really interesting to see how he goes but at the end of the day he's there as back up to the first choice centres so anything positive is a bonus. I can't see him being a particularly important player if we are healthy in the backs.

If he stays fit he's a good signing for you imo. Will cause a bit of havoc off the bench and still has ability to score key try's.

Konnie can be one of the most damaging players in the game on his day, but I don't think the errors he brings will magically disappear at this stage in his career (although you can always improve).

It's not like they won't have identified and worked on these things during his time in the best resourced RL competition in the world. NRL has the best coaches and facilities, and you're playing with higher-standard players every day... it's just how it is.

Anyway good luck to him, really likeable guy although his decision making on and off the field is questionable at times. Be interesting to see what happens if/when he lines up against Leeds this season.

Him playing in a side that dominates and will be able to continually put him into space is a scary thought. At times because we have no organisation we were playing him like a prop.

Agreed. I think he'll go well for Saints.

Ironically I think he would have been a lot better for us this year with the new set up but obviously wasn’t to be.

I don’t think Saints fans will be as forgiving when Newman skips round him when he’s out of position in defence though.

;-)

Joking aside I too think he’ll go well for saints then sign for the Dolphins in 2023

Had we got rid of Thompson we might have kept Hurrell.
Him and Newman as centres with decent halfbacks would have seen the best of him.
