  • Naufahu Whyte Extending and Renouf Atoni Joining Tricolours

    Awesome news about Whyte resigning, looks to be a quality prospect.

    Atoni looks very promising too, even though it was confirmed a while back it has now been officially announced.

    Great news. Tuku Hau Tapuha's contract is till the end of 2022. Hopefully we can re-sign/extend him for a few more years. The kid looks promising !


    Then there's also Daniel Suluka-Fifita. Not sure about him.

      Great news

      I fully expect Atoni to have a Tetevano like impact, never understood why he didn't play more minutes at the dogs.

        The guy couldn’t make the starting lineup of a team who has finished at the arse end of the league and you want to pin your hopes on him having an impact here?

          TiT - I wouldn't read too much into Barrett's team selections!

            I have a mate who is mad for the Dogs and is also a recruitment officer for Pacific Sports Man......he reckons we have gotten a good one. He is a good judge so i have hope Atoni will be good for us

              What a take... I bet you said something similar about Sam Moa, then?

                And Taukeiaho when we signed him from the Warriors.

                And I'm sure some Eels fans were filthy about the Isaiah Papalii signing, too. Afterall he was a Warriors rejects so couldn't be any good either...

                  Atoni will be behind Collins, JWH, SST & will compete with Baker, Thomas & Suluka- Fifita for a bench spot.
                  If Crighton & Sitilli are fit then they start with E Butcher & Whyte waiting in the wings & maybe adding Simms.
                  Rads, Watson & N Butcher cover 13.
                  14 Watson 15 SST, 16 N Butcher 17 Sims? or Baker, Thomas, Suluka- Fifita, E Butcher, Whyte, Marschke, Lam or Keighran
                  Verrills No 9 with maybe Marschke, Lam or Keighran interchanging with him. One of those 3 will not be at the Chooks next year
                  Other than maybe Sims I think the Roosters will continue to promote with in plus they still have Tuku as well & hopefully they all fire. Its the Melbourne model, discover unknowns who turn out to be rep players.
                  If Smith & Suaalii step up & stay fit they can be the guys needed to replace the Morris boys & with Teddy, Manu, Keary & Toups their is plenty of strike. Halfback is still a bit of a problem & its a big problem again if Keary goes down. Sammy is 2 or 3 years away from being a top notch halfback & Hutch or Lam arnt going to win you the comp. The Chooks are in the same position next year as they were this year if something happens to Keary you can kiss a Premiership goodbye.

                    Atoni will be great for us, especially under the tutelage of Robbo..

                    He is a strong runner with clever ball skills, can’t wait for next season!

                      Good signings. I think we should also look at:

                      - Tariq Sims - to offset the experience lost by Liu...easily the next best option out there with Finucane off to Sharks
                      - Blake Ferguson - if he wants to stick around in the NRL and be part of a successful team, we could snap him up?

                        Not the Melbourne model. It has been the Roostrs model for 20 years bringing players through our junior rep teams. Players like Crocker Mini Flannery

                          Yes to Sims. Could use the experience.

                          I thought I heard Fergo was going to Union. But it'd be a no for me anyway. Would rather give Joey Suaalii an extended crack

                            Whyte is in but where's Tapuha?
                            Please tell me we didn't send him away.
