Not open for further replies.

Wasn't leaving in the first place like Mt Welly said more of an Steve Matai 2.0 just trying to bump up the pay packet. Should have plenty of money in Brisbane now.

As for Tohu Harris hard to argue with past Storm players signing here that system makes a lot of average players look great. In my opinion don't think Tohu Harris is an system player he has played well in the Kiwis jersey (when's he's not playing 6) would be an good replacement signing for Hoffman and get younger at the position and proberly get better as well.

I think the signing of Harris also paves the way for Gubb to be let go at the conclusion of his contract. By all accounts he wants out now.

Although Gubb has been playing Prop it will allow someone like Bunty Afoa to move into the front row if need be

The commentators for the 9's said Afoa put on about 5kg's in the off season, so he may go back to prop.
 
Risk keeping Cappy on the chance that the Bulldogs release Hassler mid season?
No
Toovey going off after some of the refs decisions could have been interesting.
I don't think he would have been able to train the elephant in the room.
Cleary wasn't able to do a lot at the Panthers.

but he was doing ok here, and had a star of a son for free. How is the jersey salesman doing in his new job?
