This is a tough one. Ramien is so good when he is on but then he has the potential to undo all the good he has done in about 10 seconds.

Jesse jumping from 2 votes to 7 after last night. I welcome my new co-whippers. Get ready for a season of "why didn't he pass it?" and "why the **** did he do that?"

I don’t think he’s been so good at all mate. Two years with us, one with the Knights and then last year with us - still hasn’t reached any great heights.

I think there is talent there but not enough to overcome a lack of brain power.

It was a very Pomeroy-esque moment

There are sparks of moments to get you excited but it has not been consistent and often.

Our most frustrating player, no doubt. Could be our best with a slight personality realignment

He ain't changing
Chucked a sad at one club and got contract terminated.
Wanted to come back to us, although apparently had 3 other clubs interested, but coming off bad form and we still pandered to him with 500k a year and 4 years.

Overspent on him given we already had Dugan and Morris both played really well in 2019, and Xerri had debuted.

If we pay Ramien 100k less we would have been able to retain Josh Morris no worries and if he turned the offer down we are still fine.

He is a top tackle buster and offloader but he can be a massive bonehead and also can have quiet games where he should find an extra hitup or two to help out.

Morris wanted out.
He thought he could win a premiership at the Roosters. Let’s not think otherwise

I'd want to play with my bro for my final years if I could, too. Really disliked the way it played out, but I get it

That's great but we also were forced to release someone due to cap mismanagement.
If we weren't forced to release him either we retain him or make Roosters trade for him. Either option is better than just giving away one of our best players.

It wasn't Collins. They gave us permission to talk to Faamausili.

What a tough time to pick your April Whipping Boy... Everyone is playing well. I've gone with Ramien, simply due to feeling he has the highest likelihood of doing something groan-inducing. Closely followed by Trindall, but that would only be if he replaced Moylan, and even he's looking fully fit and firing!

I think I'll have to leave it on Wade, you're right very hard to assign it to anyone currently in 17
