Fusitua is the player we should be after for a swap
I’ve backed him to come good in super coach the last two years and he has let me down so I can’t say I’d be too excited to sign him although there may well still be a good winger in there somewhere.

Wouldn’t be happy to swap metcalf (who we still want) for Fus (who they don’t want) though

Tend to agree.
Same - Metcalf is a keeper, give him Traceys utility spot for the new season and take it from there.

Kid could have the potential to be better then Trindall or Kennedy whichever position he ends up playing

Yeah, I think we need to make sure he stays.
Metcalf will be a regrettable loss if he walks.

Moylan will be the utility, Tracey will be a centre unless we sign someone worth while

Tough spot for us, you just can't keep them all. Metcalf looks great, but not proven enough in roles we need filled to overtake Tracey or Moyan this year.

It could prove to be a mistake to move, but it's hard to blame the kid for grabbing at a better chance to play first grade.

Hopefully it won't matter... If Trindall becomes the player people think he can be, Moylan stays fit and Tracey keeps improving (if he does at his current rate he'll play for Australia!) we won't need him.

Did you just ignore the bit where it was reliant on continued significant improvement or are you just assuming that applies to an amount of other players in front of him too?

Interesting he seems to be talking like the most likely outcome is retirement.
Usually you'd talk about finding a club until it doesn't happen but he seems to think either it won't happen or he doesn't expect an offer he thinks is worth playing on for, or maybe only thinks it is worthwhile if he hears from a top club or something.
Another factor is if offers are from club near enough to area he wants to move to, could be in Sharks area or maybe not.
Why the fk is everyone even talking about Kevin naiqama ? He is SHT

If we offer Moylan the utility spot rather then a up and comer with genuine potential like Metcalf who could shine even more under better leadership and coaching we are truly stupid

Your delusional if you think at his current rate of improvement he will get anywhere near a rep jersey. He scored a lot of tries but blew just as money throwing a foward pass to his winger.

Who cares about rep jerseys?
Alex Johnston has never played for NSW and he scores more tries than any other winger every year.
Nick Cotric played for NSW and I would never entertain signing him

I think Sparkles was being a bit sarcastic about Tracey playing for Australia. At least I hope he was!

Hopefully now they have signed ash taylor, it is a red flag for Metcalf
