Rumour is Warriors are to announce the signing of a new centre tomorrow.

Can anyone confirm this?

There's always the possibility that it's just Ropo re-signing.

Will be Ropo.
If someone was remotely close to signing with us we would have heard about it.

The guys in blue are the ones I would be pleased to see sign.

Agree with your choices though.

I am clearly in the minority, but I'd welcome a Ropati re-signing, but I would also like to see us sign someone else for the centre ranks, be they an established NRL player or a promising junior.

Ah yeah I don't have any strong feelings either way re Ropo re-signing. He's obviously adequate cover at FB, and we have to give him a little more time at centre. We let Moon and Berrigan go without having good depth in the outside backs and it's hurting us this season. I think it'd just be a disappointing end to the rumour though!

Perhaps it is Sam Lousi re-signing for next year at centre.

Or maybe Paul Gallen will play centre for us, or any number of 2nd rowers.:p

Personally I'd retain Ropati - I think he's a decent NRL quality centre. He wouldn't be on too much money either - not that that is really much of a problem for us.

Shoot.....I wonder why they dropped him ?

Hard one to answer...without more info.

Lets assume he hasn't done anything illegal or totaly unpalatable , with Neilson coming the only advantage would be if he can play straight away.

Neilson / Ropati /Hurrel /Henry / Gaigai / Inu ....someone(s) gotta go.....

Apparently it's nothing illegal, just repeated breaches of team protocol. https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/brisbane-broncos-release-winger-dane-gagai-despite-signing-him-to-new-deal-just-over-a-month-ago/story-e6frexp0-1226350161045

He would be a great pick up, he is classy.
I can see someone picking him up real quick.

I'm picking Gagai to get picked up by Storm.

Agreed. Lose a player, then pick up an unwanted cheap discard from elsewhere - turn him into a world beater.

i expect gagai to stay in qld...either cowboys or titans to pick him up. hes actually quite a good player, wonder if the broncos would have let thaiday or another high profile player go if they had the same misdemeanors.

I reckon he will go to the Storm.

But as improved as Tupou is I can't help feel Gagai has the higher upside.

I wouldn't mind us signing Gagai but it's kind of unnecessary. I'd be filthy if we let Omar walk and signed Gagai.
