  • New Prop / Middle Forward

    This is where we do need to spend money IMO. Our prop depth and our go forward is lacking big time.

    Former Roosters STAR and current Catalans & France national captain REMI CASTY is my pick.

    He'll be cheap(ish), the boys love him, Trent loves him, plays a simple hard working game in the middle, has great leadership qualities.

    I also don't think he got a fair crack last time, as he was stuck behind O'Donnell, Moa, JWH, FPN, Evans, Napa etc in the pecking order.

    To replace Evans, we couldn't get better value IMO.

    Can Pearce play prop? He also is one of Trents favs as well as yours

    and before you say I'm an idiot, my idea is no more idiotic than yours

      Are you taking the piss?

      I'm guessing you are serious. The only problem with your theory is that Casty is crap.

      You used to be a decent poster. Your recent threads suggest you may have suffered a stroke.

          I think our young prop Lindsay Collins is going to be something really special

            If we had the money to spare for Cronk why didn't we go for James Graham, would have been a far wiser purchase in my opinion.

              I agree. Starting with JWH / Graham and bringing on Napa / SST from bench would have been v good. That rotation is very solid.
              Wouldn't be commanding Cronk money either.

              Has been promising, but it's only early days.

                That's subjective.

                I think he'll do a basic job well and he'll be cheap.

                He's like Lillyman, but cheaper, younger and more French.

                  I hope people are right about Collins. To be honest I don't like him and don't see him as a regular first grader anytime soon. I hope I'm wrong but our pack really seems to be lacking something and I'm not so sure Collins as the answer. I am certain though that a reserve grade level Frenchman is not likely to come here on second chance and set the world on fire.

                      At least this helps to put your comments on Cronk into context.

                        We already have two props with slow leg speed, we don't need a third !

                          I like the players we have in the lower grades and I think Robbo's shown time after time that he can bring through a middle third player and turn them into a First Grader in a short space of time.

                          Players like Isaac Liu, Taukeiaho, Napa & Tetevano all came from relative obscurity.

                          Lindsay Collins is definitely a prime candidate IMO to have a break out year following a similar sort of path the players mentioned above did. Was impressed with him the first time I saw him and he got a lot of good experience this year.

                              Graham has far more to his game than Napa does or ever will, hits the line and then some, has good leg drive and can create second phase as he has a pass as well.
