I don't want to offer Moylan anything. His re-signing was a **** decision.
Still can't believe we kept him after years of seeing nothing but inconsistency and injury - let alone the type of culture players like him and woods bring etc

Agreed. What were they thinking. Has been deadset crap / liability for years then they go and extend him for another. Now he is potentially poaching next generations spots and players with good potential are leaving. Would be much happier with him not in the team considering he will be injured throughout and is probably debatable if he is much of a upgrade on his replacement (considering he can’t / doesn’t kick now)

Not a rumour but if we are still after a front rower I’d like us to consider Alex Walmsley from St Helens
They just won 3 in a row, I’d assume that’s tick some major goals for him, I still think he’s young enough to make a move & do well in the NRL & the Shire is a great area for a pommy to live in. He’s still contracted to St Helens but if there was a player they might let go in good will & good service to the club it’s him.

Not a chance unfortunately
Hes settled in the UK with his family and recently re-signed with Saints.
Hes the best front rower in the UK.
When Saints had him and Thompson up front they were unstoppable together.

Michael Chee Kam signs with south’s

Tautau Moga signs with the dragons
I can't remember a worse recruitment drive in recent memory than the dragons have done now.

Moga
Suli
Burgess
Gosiewsiki
Molo
Mbye
Woods
Su'a

On the back of losing Frizell, McInnes and Vaughan in the last 2 years. Definition of uninspiring.

How bad has it been! You wouldn't be happy as a Saint's fan.

Yeah someone like Moga is going to be on minimum, but Suli and Molo were both quoted around 500k each.

In your head, rent free
francis molo starts in our side
jayden sua starts in our side
suli probably does as well, but his price tag sucks
george burgess would probably make our bench as well

Molo makes our side but is a muchness with Toby starting.
Sua offers more than Nikora or Talakai but has failed to kick on also.
Suli is BJ reincarnated and is on way overs.
George Burgess on the back of the hip surgery doesn't make our bench.

Given potential spending.
Nikora, Tracey, Talakai, BHU are much better value in our 17 than those above.

molo is better than toby
sua is better than all our backrowers, probably combined
suli is paid way too much but is a good player and we are literally starting connor tracey there
burgess on his day is better than toby, hunt, williams

I would have Toby over Molo
Suli is very talented agreed but isn’t worth the money
Sua is the Napa of edge back rowers
Burgess I thought was very good this year
