Pretty sad to see him not finish up as a 1 club player.
Terrible. There’s a reason an origin motm back is behind a squid like Johnston and the rookie Allen in the Rabbitohs fullback pecking order.What is he like as a fullback? I know he has played there but can't remember if he was any good.
I would pass on Gagai.I'd take Gagai as a centre, Bird to fullback.
You have to laugh.... Kyle Flanagan to the roosters.... "Sam walker we will put you first and you're the future".... But we will just sign a highly rated junior 2 years older than you just in case...
So now, instead of having someone 1 year older and with 4 games experience in front of him, he now has a player 3 years his senior with 7 games experience. I don't get how these young kids keep falling for the roosters bs. Yes they are a championship winning side, yes they can develop talent... But ffs you better hope you are winning nearly every game because if you're not you will be thrown to the scrapheap quickly.
The roosters do deserve credit though, they "manage" player rosters amazingly well though. Great for the game to see the salary cap can give strongly supported clubs with 5,000+ crowds every game and more than 9,000 members after a premiership year like the roosters in or near the gf every year, this is the salary cap working! Why not put the gf at an abysmal rugby league stadium that they use and waste money on a stadium only they play out of despite their poor crowds as an extra too! (sarcasm)..
Probably more like Hutchinson and Lamb have been tossed to the heap (Hutchinson only because of the ACL a few years back... he's actually looked pretty good the last couple weeks).View attachment 5579
Don’t worry, you will only be stuck behind Drew Hutchinson, Sam Walker, Lachlan Lam, Luke Keary, Brock Lam and Maybe Mitchell
