I like the signing. Kosi plays hard and from what I've seen cares about the jersey. Could end up being a Francis Meli type. Metcalf, Niukore and Manu are the rumored players we are after and there just happens to be 3 spots left đź‘€
Ash Taylor's contract is automatically executed if he passes the fitness tests. If he passes the tests, it automatically converts to one year top 30 contract. So need to take that into account as well. Technically two spots left, assuming he passes which POS said he should.

Saw Frei in Palm Cove a month ago, a lot bigger than I would have guessed (and yes familiar with Players away from the pitch lol). He was at a lunch with a partner so didn’t disturb but I’d be happy to have a further look at him on a TAT, maybe have Bunty talk to him about lifting the bar a bit.

More likely they were alloqing for the Kosi signing with 4 spots left. Don't aee Ale in top 30 with that injury
Club dropped the news after that article was published. Stuff would’ve broke the Kosi news otherwise

I agree though I don’t think it’s a good idea for Ale to be top 30 either. I can’t see there being heaps of suitors for a guy that’s only a couple weeks out of ACL surgery. Regardless of potential. Keep him around and get him in the top 30 in 2023 similar to what they did with Ratuva

I think both signings are a waste maybe due to lack of experienced backs led to Kosi making the 30 would rather he stay on a development contract and Ale is injured for most the season unless it's a Lawton situation

They are both guys with NRL experience and future potential taking up what you would assume is minimum wage in the top 30. In terms of balance that is not too bad. Also frees up a development spot for another youngster

Too early for Kosi imo and Ale is out for most of the season

I’m ok with the Kosi signing, pretty much all our home grown wingers have had shaky starts to their careers. Seems to have a good attitude and won’t be on big money so very little risk.

Adds some much needed size as well especially if Aitken moves to the forwards. Montoya is ok at a hit up, but Walsh, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Berry and Vailea aren’t going to kick start a set at this stage very well.

Ratuva has been injured most the time he should get the opportunity over Kosi because he has speed something we've lacked over the years

The fact he has been injured all the time tempers my expectations of him. At least Roache, Henry and the fish made it out on to the field before being injured. Ratuva hasn’t really managed to do that yet.

Still not writing him off yet but as a betting man would want to see a few gallops before having a punt on him.
