So, who do you think the club will go for and what rumours are around at the moment? Potentially 5 Quota spots to fill..

Sam Stone for ODonnell
Sione Matautia for Amone
James McDonnell for Holmes
Jack De Belin for Nakabuwai
Ben Garcia for Asiata

That would leave us 2 quota spots for a strike centre and a lightning quick fullback,

I’d go

Tim Lafai for Leutele
Tristan Sailor or David Armstrong if possible.

We would also need to replace Hardaker but centres seem to be in short supply in the British game.

Esan Marsters, is a rumour that will not go away. Certainly hope so, he is definitely one of the in-form Centres.

Aaron Pene, an apparent target of ours for 2025, has been released with immediate effect from the Storm to take up a Super League contract. The club he is joining has not been announced as yet.

It's here. Signed with immediate effect. Maybe Big Ben will be off to Salford.

I haven’t seen much of him. Came off the bench when he played for NZ Warriors. I think he will go well for us. He needs regular game time. Coming to a good environment with a coach who will get the best out of him.

I assume he is an upgrade on Ben "20 Minutes" Nakubuwai.

Of what I have seen of Ben, yes definitely more grunt, so I would say an upgrade. Coming from a good system of Melbourne Storm.

First game was in 1967, and have been hooked since day 1. Now live in Vancouver, Canada but follow our team any way I can. “Up The Comics !”:17580.jpg



Can’t say that I have seen a lot of this guy to be honest. He’s done two stints at Melbourne and two years in between at the NZ Warriors. Don’t think he’s featured in the starting group for Melbourne this season but I have seen some comments from fans saying he has a great style of prop play for the modern game. Some injuries have held him back from regular first team I have heard also.
Bottom line, we have signed a fast mobile prop, who is only 28 and wants to prove himself. So much, that he is willing to come here mid season.
If you search Queensland Rugby League and SC Falcons, you will see his stats for this season. They look very solid, especially meters made, post contact meters and tackle/tackle efficiency. All areas that unfortunately Big Ben did not shine at.
I think we have a good’un who will not have broken the bank.
