Certainly looks stronger than last year, excited to see how he goes. Let's hope he's starting at prop, his actual position. 🤓

Yes I loved hearing the three of them had made a pact to stick together with the aim of winning a comp together at the club. Music to my ears. Having said that, I know pacts mean nothing when big dollars are thrown around, but

Nah, Ponga has just come out and said to the Newcastle fan base "let's win a comp". He'd look real silly in 2022 playing for Knights after expressing that sort of sentiment.
Winning a comp is the only way for his PO to be activated... so it may have been a bit more like "Let's win a comp... so I can get the **** outta here"

I can’t speak for anyone else but I’m not judging the Dolphins recruitment speed, I’m just looking at the talent pool drying up and running out of ideas as to how they can field a first grade quality side come 2023. If anything it’s the NRLs fault for not making it official sooner.

That being said, about 10 clubs can barely field a first grade quality team so they’ll still a finals chance.

Yeah this. Ultimately, I'm sure they'll be fine but talent is definitely drying up. The managers have definitely done their jobs here "Lock him up now because the Phins are circling..." etc etc.

Fifita also did and look how that turned out.

It’s almost like there isn’t enough talent around to support 17 teams… but that can’t be right because PvL said it’s all good and he would never do something reckless.

No idea what you look like but in my experience it’s always guys who skip the gym completely that drop the “skips leg day” comment.
There is no way I can reply to this without sounding like a complete toss, but here goes anyway…

I’m no gym junkie (I’m also not a professional RL player), but I am quite fit.

Running (and racing) is my thing, anywhere from 5km up to marathon and even some (sadly) failed attempts at 12 hour endurance runs.

So it’s completely fair to say I don’t have a sculpted physique, but I do know a fair bit about what it takes to train your body to the point where it wants to stop, and then go well beyond that.

Not sure if that qualifies me to comment on his lack of leg muscle when compared to his upper body, but I’m also not qualified to make about 99% of the other comments I make, so I guess I’m just maintaining the status quo.

That was a great way to tell me I am right.

According to Michael Carayannis & Dean Ritchie, Carrigan met with the Dolphins but they never made him an offer. They also met with Isaako, made him an offer, he made a counter offer, but the gap was too large.

Maybe that explains why Badel and Dobbo were quietly confident Pat would re-sign.
