    I dont understand all this hatred for Sione.
    He was arguable our most consistant 2nd row forward this season. In 2015 when he played centre he averaged 125m a game as a 18-19 year old in a team that came last.
    This year-
    Buhrer- was injured or playing hooker most of the season.
    Fitz- came good towards the end of the year.
    Stone- was in and out.

    Lol thank you.. If we want to speak in facts then it is right to say that he was arguably our most consistent forward, perhaps seconds to D Saf

    He ran great lines. Was consistently aggressive in defense (something I am eternally grateful for) and seemed willing to scream and orgnaize his side of the field

    Aside from arguably lacking the frame to be truly affective as a backrower i thought he was great. And if it weren't for his head knocks HE'D STILL BE CAPTAIN from the backrow

    I'd suggest the winners of the player of the year, players player and coaches awards had a better season.

    I know you love an appeal to authority ken.

    Sione was better than Wardle, starling and King though

    I think the fact that Gagai won any sort of award is proof enough that of it didn't come from the coach, it probably doesn't mean too much lol

    Personally Barnett is my favourite forward. And I thought he looked our most classy last season. Glad to see him get recognised for it

    Gags didn't win anything this year.

    So we agree buhrer better by virtue of winning coaches award and being given captaincy?

    Yeah happy to agree with that. He was instrumental this year. The boys really respond to him

    It's Kenny Powers mate. I forgot the password to my account lol

    And what an insult. My grammatical footprint is in no way comparable to 88's. The only thing we have in common is a tendency for over zealous spamming

    Pay Jennings his entire contract and then some if need be. We’ve got the money. He’d be a tremendous addition. Very underrated at this point of his career. Still explosive with the ball and very solid defensively.

    What's Jennings contract though? I've seen quotes of up to $800k?

    Another reason why he’s going nowhere. I honestly believe the Matautia hate has been caught up with Sione I rate him.

    Agree, but what's fair value for us you reckon?

    The Sione hate is his on $600k a year and $500k overpaid. 6th best backrower and poor option at center.

    1) he's on 400k
    2) he's our 4th best option in the back row imo. I think some naive people on here are gonna get a bit of a shock when Fitzy suddenly doesn't play like he is unsigned for next season.
    3) A poor option at centre? He last played there as a 19 year old. Pull your head in. If he is rubbish after the first few games then I'll jump on board with you. But so much water has passed under the bridge since he last played the position. He st least deserves an opportunity to show his worth in the centres.

    I find it funny that even the coach is curious. But somehow you've already made up your mind. Please fill us in on where you're getting your information. I'm sure Browny would like to know

    Simple fact is if we sign a specialized Centre before round 1, there’s no spot for sione in the side.

    Serious question. Why is the club trying to resign him? Or are they actually looking for a reason not to?
