Couple of refs would go a long way..

I think they are all locked up in long term contracts. Maybe we could sign Alfie Langer to stand out the back and run our plays or control our defensive structure.

Actually my toddler could probably run our plays - "throw it to the little guy. Straight up the guts....and repeat...and repeat...and repeat.

I think josh jackson would be the right kind of australian we usually get! Hes a real tough nut.
I don't mind Josh Jackson. But I'd prefer a younger Josh Jackson. This Jackson I would pass on.

I would love to get Isaac Liu. Kiwi, Powerful runner. Powerful defender. Zero mistakes. Huge motor! Just doesn't stop.
All this talk of Fifita & Fa'asuamaleaui. Id take them in a heart beat! But Liu, Right now would be my first choice target(Not sure of his contract details lol)

He's contracted until the end of 2021 season

Yeah Isaac Liu would be a very astute signing actually. Josh Jackson is still only 28 - that means we can still get him on a 5 year contract plus player option, right? Guys? Hello? But seriously, I think we need some old tough cattle and Jackson has plenty left in his tank.

I know a few punters have previously suggested Lloyd Perrett, 24 yrs 1.94m and 115kegs, top off loader in ISP- rumours out this week the Broncos were sniffing around to ‘add depth’ to their monster pack! - could be a good gamble for a young guy wanting a first grade opportunity

I don't think any Aussie wants to tackle Paasi, or be tackled by him. However they sure know to watch for when he loses intensity and then run at him because they know he will do it for sure. They also know that he plays the ball slow and occasionally loses intensity on the hitup, and they just wait for it.

That’s just too many minutes, just play him less minutes with Ah Mau who is good for 50 playing more from the bench.

Actually take a strengths based approach to each player and go from there...

There's no way Lloyd is 115kg lol. More like 125kg. He looked massive when he came on. Even Tof looked massive. They made Fifita look small.

I agree Perrett would be an ok target size age and position wise and for me these fringe grade forwards should be our targets for price and terms of contract

2 or 3 cheaper signings as it’s obvious our plays for the top tier have failed

My only criteria is you most possess at least one of the following skill sets prior to signing

Bend the line
Offload / footwork
Training and work ethic
Meter eater

At least one of the above

For me Paasi Afoa Ah Mau + 1 is a solid front row rotation with the bench used correctly
Let the back row play there own game

Moving forward

I always check the minutes. LAM does as many as Paasi, if not more sometimes. The guy lacks intensity. I don't know any other club that would want him.

He stood out in a team with good props because his workload was not as big maybe? Thats why I see him as a bench prop at best!
