Why are we needing to sway him into staying? Did i miss something? Maybe he wants to win a premiership. Im sure he does. But the Panthers arent letting players like Kikau to walk to pay him.

Who is "advocating for CNK over Savage"? I must've missed that post. All I see is a lot of disproportional hate thrown towards CNK for simply being named on the bench, a role I think suits his versatility quite well. Not really if you're rolling with a 9 on the bench though. 2 big men is ...

Klokstadt could survive 10 mins at lock or backrow if he has to chip in. Not the worst #14 choice. Yeah I don't actually mind it. He is actually the closest thing we have to a utility player we have for backline coverage. However I seriously hope that Ricky resists the urge to 'hook' Savage if he m...

Blues half is playing well, as are the Raiders boys - Morkos got beaten on the outside at least twice though. Don't mind the look of the Maroons hooker too.

He's struggled to get game time at the Titans, who were very ordinary. But then in contract year his form improved. Now he can't crack a very ordinary Tigers team. Is he a lazy trainer, poor attitude? He is certainly gifted enough when he gives a ****.
