hahahaha

to be fair, i was a bit shattered when we missed out on him as i felt that was our window of opportunity, however, since getting nicho hynes i am more than happy to have missed adam

i will say this

wish we got them both

Like most, I wanted him. I get the feeling he'll decline badly though.

Was never comfortable with three years so I'm very comfortable with missing him.

I wanted him, we really needed something and he was best available established half. Given how things have panned out I think the market got too hot for him and for the best we missed out, although Nicho and Reynolds would have been good.
Info was a bit unclear surrounding Reynold's injury situation, was happy to let club worry about whether that stopped us signing him or not but I don't mind not having injury(/age) to worry about in our halves... except Moylan and his injuries...

Nicho is a bit of an unknown compared to Reynolds but has a very high ceiling. A lot of Storm fans saying they would have rather kept him than Pap, although Paps suspiciously cheap deal that has just gone through has softened that blow for them a bit.

Yeah i think we all wanted Reynolds but getting Nicho is a very good second prize, and looking back which I might be doing just because we didn't get him - Reynolds was more short term. Nicho is short term but mostly a long term benefit and have zero regrets we have Nicho.

Nicho was cheaper than Reynolds too, maybe we don't have enough for Finucane if we got Reynolds ?

He’ll be thinking how many tackles do they expect me to make. So many misses and drop offs. We can’t wrap the ball.

Hope part of his plan is to NOT listen to Hannay regarding use of bench

Just precautionary.
