10 of the Roosters GF side last year made their debut at the Roosters. and 14 of the Storm So they'd welcome it.
Doubt they would have won anything without the 2 who didn't.

That's local juniors.

It isn't surprising either given how small the Roosters catchment is and how much Souths have eaten into that nursary.

In terms of debutants they had Daniel Tupou, Latrell Mitchell, Joey Manu, Jake Friend, Boyd Cordner, Mitchell Aubusson, Victor Radley, Isaac Liu, Dylan Napa & Ryan Matterson all made their debuts for the club.

Both JWH and Sio Siua Taikeiaho miss out despite only playing a handful of first grade games for their previous clubs.

I am not too concerned about parra or warriors approaches. As an 18 year old i think he would be looking long-term, and those teams will not make him a better player or provide likely premierships.

I am concerned if the storm come sniffing about. They are a successful club and have the systems in place to improve his game, which could be a greater influence to him.
I’m not concerned about Melbourne. It would be 2021 before he played with them and by then Cameron Smith would likely be retired and the downhill slide from the Storm would commence whilst hopefully we would be on the up and up

To add to this, Bellamy is looking to retire around the same time.

I'll be surprised if Bellamy sees out the 2020s as Melbourne coach and once he does leave, the Storm will come back to the pack in a big way.

WWoS article detailing how Fifita is definitively going to the Warriors as we cant meet the asking price (1 mill per season was stated)...

Whats with the amount of shit stirring in media circles these days....???...even his agent would know he inst worth that and the Broncs wont be offering it...

Cant folk see that 18 year old kid ISNT equipped to deal with the unique pressure that comes with the million per year tag (Taylor for instance). The kids gunna get paid no question...but he doesn't need that money right now nor does he deserve it...

Oh, and Warriors can go **** themselves...

I'm pretty sure the source of that is the mole ... Enough said.

Chris Garry has a differing opinion, and as far as the media us concerned, I would trust him a million times more than I would trust the mole

Most of the men in the Roosters catchment area like to hang out with all the boys.

If the media are going to just flat out lie at least make it believable.

Any up and coming player with half a brain and who care about their footballing future would not even entertain the thought of going to the Warriors under the current predicament that club is in. If it wasn’t for that bit of a turn around last season where they did some good things, they were bordering on Titans levels of under achievement.

It’s why I didn’t tip them to make the 8 this year because I knew they wouldn’t sustain the amount of effort and mental fortitude required to back that season up, especially after losing their most creative half. Also most players who have gone their have declined because of the culture of the club.

For Fifita to even consider going there, the Warriors offer would have to be at least double what we could offer him I would have thought. The Eels is where the slight danger is in terms of losing him but I think you’ll find we will definitely won’t be resigning Macca at the end of 2020 and I think Boyd will be getting a talking to before then as well.

On a slightly related topic, I almost cannot believe we are paying Payne Haas the same as what the Titans paid for Shannon Boyd

I almost think we could get Fifita to stay for around that $650k figure too.
