  • The Off Season Thread

    Just wanted to create a thread for all discussion relating to transfers and resignings for this off season.

    Hopefully extensions for TKO, Manu and Crichton are sealed and maybe a signing or two. I would personally like to see the Roosters chase after Tabuai-Fidow from the Cowboys, versatile, strong and fast and his contact expires in 2022.

    Manu is a must to re-sign and I’m worried we will lose him. People are going to reply saying no chance he will leave but they all said it about RTS as well and the Warriors have basically said they’ll pay whatever it takes.

    SST I hope stays another few years I think rumours of his demise were greatly exaggerated.

    Crichton I’m unsure of. He has it in him and we’ve seen it for the blues but I’m not sure we’ve seen it for Easts and we certainly didn’t see it in the second half of the season. I’d like him to stay and I’d be worried he’d leave and kill it elsewhere but I hoped he’d step up more in the absence of Boyd than he did this year.

    As for who to sign I think we need more players than people admit. The boys did great this year but we’ve lost a lot of talent in key areas, I’m concerned about the backline losing some bite and the forward pack losing a few key players. I know Collins is back up front but in my mind Sitili has been at his best coming off the bench I really think we need a quality edge back rower.

      Chooks have 25 players confirmed for 2022 so at least 5 spots to fill - Chooks only had 28 of 30 in 2021- Not sure if any of those on development contracts or other contracts will be promoted to NRL full contracts and or any of the 25 listed maybe released.

      Only read they were talking to Tariq Sims - Wikipedia says they have signed Renouf Atoni but nothing confirmed by the club- In July 2021, Atoni signed a contract to join the Sydney Roosters starting in 2022.
      1. Renouf Atoni
      2. Fletcher Baker
      3. Egan Butcher
      4. Nat Butcher
      5. Lindsay Collins
      6. Angus Crichton
      7. Drew Hutchison
      8. Matt Ikuvalu
      9. Luke Keary
      10. Adam Keighran
      11. Lachlan Lam
      12. Freddy Lussick
      13. Joseph Manu
      14. Victor Radley
      15. Billy Smith
      16. Joseph Suaalii
      17. Daniel Suluka-Fifita
      18. Siosiua Taukeiaho
      19. James Tedesco
      20. Daniel Tupou
      21. Sitili Tupouniua
      22. Sam Verrills
      23. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves

        Quality back rower? I mean Isaiah Papali'i' expires in 2022 which I'd like but he'll more than likely resign with Para.

                  I reckon N Whyte will be added also, so maybe only 1 or 2 spots left.

                      No worries! Hope this thread prevents threads from being made for every topic relating to the off season, nice for things to be simplified for everyone on here.

                          Im with you RoosterBoi but trust me any player rumoured or signed by the Roosters will have its own thread. Its just the way the Chookpen rolls mate.

                            How's the mood in Sharktown for next year mate?

                              Was holding out hope that wouldn't be the case.
