Su‘a is a good signing for you guys good solid first grader. Just be aware though he can come up with some bad reads in defence though.

Suli is a gamble but it could pay off. It all comes down to how committed he is to his fitness with him.

I think it’s worth a gamble with some performance based incentives.

Molo will bring good energy too. A bit better than someone like an Alvaro.

The Mbye signing I don’t like at all mate.

he should fit right in at the Dragons then.
Our defence during got steadily worse in 2021 until we had gaping holes through the ruck.
Under previous coaches Milward and Co have had a tendency to sign any player they could from the Raiders.

Under Griffin it now seems to be any former Bronco but hopefully Lodge is unavailable.

definitely not sure about him.
His comments about his effects in recent seasons at the Tigpies didnt exactly instill confidence.
He signed and then went out and had shockers to finish up at the Tigpies.

Maybe a new club will lift him but I wouldnt count on it.

I would rather have persisted with our home grown younger guys and resigned Sims

surprised they are not putting in an offer to L lewis and Napa. as well.
Coach Griffin will have no excuses for poor effort next season as he is no doubt involved in the departure of players and the signing of the replacements..
We will either make the bottom of the 8 or take the Dodgies spoon off them.

its not exactly a signing to the Dragons but a signing of a Dragon.
Good luck to Mary as Freddys new offsider for the Blues team.

It never ceases to amaze how our boys go elsewhere and show some fine talent

we love buying "elderly" hookers so I am surprised we havent given Mcullough his retirement papers and bought Mitch Rein back.
His only fault at the dragons was his habit of throwing forward passes from dummy half.
Hopefully Tariq stays for his last season and wins a new contract or a better paying one at another club.
not sure about the MBye signing

where does Ramsey fit into your side SJ?.
