    Stone looks to be developing into a very good forward, 2nd row, he didn't play yesterday, injured or 18th man?
    While we keep picking King, not quite 1st grade and Yates, a goer back lacks a bit of size, we will not have the pack we need to be competitive. Can't doubt the effort they both put in.

    Let's just forget about 2017 and look forward to 2018 and replacing King and Yates with Guerra and Ese'ese.

    Guerra never played for the storm........... So I don't understand this tight business. Maybe I'm missing something?

    WHY GUERRA IS JOINING KNIGHTS

    Aidan Guerra wants to help Nathan Brown resurrect Newcastle.

    The former Queensland Origin forward has revealed why he’s leaving the Roosters for a new start in Newcastle.

    The 29-year-old said it was an honest conversation with Roosters coach Trent Robinson that helped him make the decision to leave Bondi.

    “It was a good opportunity. Once I spoke to Robbo and as a club you can see the direction they’re going,” Guerra told Private Ryan.

    “You look at the stocks coming through. Stocks are plentiful. It’s exciting for the club. Once (Robbo) gave me his blessing to go out and see what’s out there, I weighed things up and the Knights seem like a good opportunity.

    “As you can tell by the way they play, they’re a club on the up. It will be great to be part of the resurrection of a great club.”

    A veteran of 10 Origins and one Test for Australia, the 103 kilo lock is playing his eighth season of first grade.

    Having made his first grade debut for the tricolours in 2010, Guerra plays his 150th game this weekend when the Roosters face his former club Melbourne.

    Guerra already has one title with the Roosters from 2013, and is daring to dream about an October finish before closing this chapter of his career.

    “I want to make the weeks left in the Roosters colours count,” he said.

    “I’ve been here for a long time. It’s my eighth season. I’d love to finish off on a positive note and finish in October.

    “I don’t need a farewell tour to ignite me. I’d love to finish on a high with the people I’ve grown up with as a footballer.”

    Danknight - Guerra was in the Storm system for four years, Played with all the big boys in developmental squads and broke his ankle had over half a dozen opperations to fix the initial botched job, during that time he was in the Storms top squad and was dropped by Bellyache when he signed for Roosters - ALL that is old news.

    Also if you do a bit of research you will see that he was invited to the Blairs wedding on Hamilton Island - that is close in my books.

    I think you will find Guerra is better connected to the top player group than you give credit.

    SKD and Watson both chatted to him before signing and if Knights were serious they would have him talk to BBQ as they were tight at Storm and Roosters.

    Evidence shows Guerra wants to be here more than some who are here already.

    In saying that, I just hope they can assemble a formidable team going forward using whatever connections are available.
