Lodge is not needed.. We have Haas and Pangai that can fill that void. Those two started at prop together in a trial match and looked unreal rumbling up the field. We are already paying big money for Haas and Pangai so there is no need to also have Lodge and Ofa signed on big money too.. Especially when they play like they are worth 400k max
Maybe Patty really is being shifted to prop with Asiata coming in to be a ball playing lock.

In which case someone is surplus, but I’d be annoyed if we moved on Lodge and not Offa.

Is that a legitimate rumour?

I don't really want Carrigan to move from lock. I prefer his style over a ball playing lock.. All he needs to work on is including offloads into his game.

Do you remember when Josh McGuire, Adam Blair and Sam Thaiday would fancy themselves as ball playing forwards?

It was the worst tactic I've ever seen and only stunted our attack. It was traumatising.

I don't want another forward getting in the way.. I don't really care who it is.. the less ball playing by middle forwards, the better. IMO

Wouldn’t work.
With the game having sped up with the rule changes this year and Sam dining out on all those French pastries he probably weighs about 150k by now.
He would never be able to keep up with the pace of the game now.

We don't really need a prop coming from the bench that can play big minutes. We need a couple of props that can provide some impact for 20 minutes a game. Haas, Tevita and Carrigan can all play big minutes in the middle

One of our major issues is experience. Replacing a guy like Lodge who's had a number of seasons under his belt and also has experience with the pressure that comes with being an NRL player. We can't just plug that gap with a couple of guys still wet behind the years fresh off a season where we got flogged pillar to post.

I agree with you. I would have liked to be in a position to sign Christian Welch. Lodge is actually not very experienced at all in NRL to be honest.

Last time I saw kas on tv he seemed the thinnest he’s ever looked.

Agreed. Forwards need to run hard and that's all. If they are ball-playing it means your spine isn't doing its job.

Ball playing lock isn't essential even if it's popular(Storm don't use one), I think a ball playing 2nd rower is far more devastating in attack, and tbh we have that with TPJ, but we all know he is a diamond in the rough atm.

We shouldn't even consider moving Lodge on. Leave Carrigan where he is, TPJ is not nearly as consistent as Lodge and when Lodge and Haas are on the field together we eat the metres up the middle. Two big bodies with big motors. Why the **** are we even talking about weakening our strongest positions in front row and lock?

We're definitely NOT paying big money for Haas. In fact he's close to the lowest paid forward in the team.

Offa should be the one if you are looking to move someone on but even then from memory it's only been his time under seibold that he really went to shit

When was the last time offa had a cracking game that made you think **** yeah offa!
