  • Young Panther forward Spencer Leniu worth a look?

    There is mail that Spencer Leniu is going to be forced out of the Panthers due to the salary cap.

    This fellow has shown great potential while coming off the bench for the Panthers this year.

    Does anyone else agree he could be a solid, cheap addition for us? Charlie Staines is also said to be on the outer but we probably have enough outside backs.

    Staines is genuine pace. Would love to see that in our jersey.

      He’s apparently on much more then 300K something closer to 550K.. that’s the scoop and if that’s true they overpaid him for sure.. at the time he probably looked like the man who would take over Tamou and be their new starter but gee he’s fizzled out into mud this season. Still has a huge future I reckon but

        Leniu has high talent but low fitness.

        Staines is Bevan French if he can’t put on some muscle and keep his speed.

          Staines only offers speed, nothing else. Makes no meters and can't tackle, big no thanks.

          Leniu looks talented but I'd rather just develop the boys we have

            Leniu? No thanks - we have great depth with similar impact forwards. Tupouniua, Egan, Baker, Tapuha, Whyte, Atoni, DSF...

            What we need is an experienced backrower who can play prop at a pinch that plugs the experience gap left by Liu and Cordner. I said it in another thread that Finucane was ideal. But Tariq Sims is a good shout too - incumbent Origin leader.

            Staines would be worth a crack if we can't snag someone more experienced like Ferguson. He isn't a world beater but is a specialist right winger who can find the try line. Would be good competition for Ikavalu and Suaalii.

              Fark no to 'shit Staines' ... he is legless. Fast and that is all. Doesnt work hard coming off his line and can't defend

                Staines is a fullback, played all his juniors there and was Player of the Year in the Ron Massey Cup a couple of years ago playing there. He's too small to be a winger but they have played him there to stop him from going to the Bulldogs. Will be interesting to see if the Dogs have another sniff at him now.

                  Nah I wouldnt worry about either of them, I would rather Olam & Luke Thompson if the Chooks cant get Olam I would then target Campbell Graham.
