He's too far fuckwit IMO.
Its the NRL
Jordan McLean to the Cowboys on a 3 year deal starting next season.
Very good signing (unfortunately, because I hate the Cowboys), he's got a big chance to be the best prop in the game within a couple of years, enormous frame, high work load, skillful.
Do you think he can do it without Smith and Cronk though? We've seen plenty of examples of Storm players leaving Melbourne never to reach those heights again.
I think so, props are the exception to the "leave Melbourne and you'll look worse" rule, Smith and Cronk have pretty minimal impact on Bromwich & McLean's stats, you could argue that Smith gives them good service, but it'd be a negligible difference in the overall scheme of things. It's not in the same ball park as blokes like Proctor who've made a living off running on to Cronk short balls.
I think Smith does make a pretty big difference. He gets the forwards going better than any other player in the game. There were a few numpties who only looked good at the Storm, such as Cross, Anderson (?) and White. McLean will have to prove himself like Tolman or Blair (after 3 shitty years) did.
Titans have signed Grevsmuhl. I imagine he'll come straight in to the starting line-up tbh, haven't seen much of Greenwood, but I don't think he's that good.
So of the Titans team at full strength, they will have these mid-season signings in their side:
I wonder what percentage what be comparable from other sides.
I'd say roughly 250%
You could also include Greenwood, he swapped with Taia mid-way through the ESL season.
How many premiership teams in NRL history (ie. since 1998) have included mid-season signings?
Grevsmuhl will be a fantastic signing if his head is screwed on right again.
That's the makings of a top six side.
Hayne will be out of there at season end.
I really liked the look of their roster coming in to the season as well, but they still seem to be the same old Titans (at this stage).
Will probably finish somewhere between 7th & 12th, as per usual.
Segeyaro to be named on an extended bench today for the Sharks.
They always seem to have a heap of injuries. They've really handled the Hayne drama poorly too.
While ever their number 1 is in the side, they wont do any good. He is a great player but a terrible team player
