Hard not to want him to stay at centre after watching this...
God he's a weapon. With it all packaged like this it's so clear how good he is at straightening up and making space for his winger. Ronnie definitely benefitted from having him alongside him all year.

Given how much it will likely cost to keep em I'd rather keep Katoa than Ramien.

Iro's done everything he can to deserve a shot.

Jesse was one of the best centres in the game this year, would be crazy not keeping him.

Yeah I'd like to know. Can't see him costing a fortune, would be disappointing to lose him.
Yeah he is an amazing finisher, and improved a lot this year too. I can't see anyone paying overs for him. I'll be disappointed if we lose him and keep WK. If someone has to go I'd rather it be Will.

I thought he was strong without being spectacular. A few people here are happy just to see him having less brain explosions.

Would prefer Katoa on $300k than Jesse on $600k, though those numbers are purely guesswork.

Don’t know the guy so this is all just vibe from what I’ve seen but with his brother contracted into NRL again (Dogs) I think he’d be more happy to stay cheap.

Seems a pretty shy quiet guy reckon he’d rather stay where he’s comfortable.
Could see him chasing money without a second thought if his brother was still having health problems though.

Jesse should know after last time the dangers of leaving. He was simultaneously one of the best centres in 2022 and one of the dumbest. Remove most of the brain explosions and he’s an absolute weapon.

And apparently they all want to stay together. I don't get why there would be a delay and guys signing a fair space apart though

Katoa is one of my favourite players to watch but who knows, maybe Fitz wants someone faster and/or taller.

A lot of holidays this time of year and if they are comfortable then no real rush from their end and club not smart to push to hard while they have been on break

Katoa's supposed to be such a great finisher... I would have expected him to get this over the line already. Had your chance mate.
