Tbf I'd like to see JWH over here for 1 season. Even if it is for them lot.

Might be a complete disaster but it'd be fun to watch him.

Heard some crazy stat that the Roosters win around 80% or the games he plays in, but it drops to around 60% when he doesn’t


One of my fave players to watch as I like things old skool, but he'd be on a permanent ban in newly sanitised SL. So sign him up Rovers :)

The way the games officiated here, then with Cullen on the MRP can only only see JWH being an absolute car crash whichever club he signed for (unless St's or Wigan of course).

Looks like Jack Cole is getting the nod to replace Luai in the WCC don't know much about him but it seems Brad Schneider is pushed down to 4th choice half, would he be a realistic target for next season? I thought he would've stayed at Rovers and had a decent impact on their season last year (apart from missing touch in the CC final :lol: )

Don't know if he wanted to go back to Aus but he may be an option, still young but may want an NRL clause which I hope we would stay away from but beggars can't be choosers.

I think it would be a solid signing, did well in his few games here and is still young enough to improve (which he should do in the Panthers environment), think he will stay though as he will the main backup next year when Luai leaves.

I would look at a few Rovers players though, Corey Hall would be a good signing, Burgess or Senior and I would take Parcell for a year.

As for JWH, it's a 200k plus gamble, one that we can't afford to take, but maybe Rovers can, it could turn out like Willie Mason or SKD, we are pretty well stocked at prop, we already have 3 quota spots on props, think we have more important areas to strengthen,

Bit surprised Dane Laurie hasn't got first shot at 6 for Penrith. Their was a bit of talk about him being Luais replacement when they signed him

I would stay away from Burgess but Senior has always looked good for them, solid with pace and would be a decent signing, not sure with Hall he burst onto the scene at Wakey but hasn't seen much game time over there and they have been messing around trying him.in the second row.

Probably right on Burgess. Think Hall has great potential, but cant see him getting a game with their two centres. Senior would be a good replacement for McIntosh, younger, quicker and probably cheaper, him Martin and Tindall would be decent wing options and allow us to spend more money in more key positions.

Cliffords said pre season in England was a piece of pi$$ compared to Aus, uncle Tony not working them hard enough?

Think its probably a lot more intense in the NRL than over here along with possibly spending more hours in the day training than we do. Do think Smith is too casual and laid back which can be a positive but also quite a negative.

Not bothered who the Dobbins sign for next season, or any other club..if Pearson doesn't back Smith to sign some quality, then expect season pass sales to drop!
