    All the arguments but we don't have anyone to replace him and if defence, rushing up, is a problem then refer to coach, better forwards, more ball less tackling less misses. Keep him or find a better sub.

    Pete was pretty bad today. Cannot see him being offered enough to want to stay. Straight swap for Moga

    So who takes Gagai spot? Pete busts his gut for us, yes he wasn't good today, misses tackles but he always puts his hand up to get the hard yards, as I have said before he misses tackles trying where others just miss them through lack of effort.

    LOL, he misses more tackles than he makes and it's generally getting bumped off going high (just like his bros). someone needs to sort out their techniques before they get one too many knocks to the head.

    Have we considered that Petes form slump, whatever, coincides with Ross not being on the wing alongside him, since his, Ross, drop to reserves and then f/back, 5-6 weeks, they had confidence in each other, team work, could be.

    I don't think Pete was that bad. Little miscommunication but did his job.

    Id 100% keep him here,
    His bad games like yesterday's are not really that poor, yes his never going to be a motm player but he does a lot of good things and never stops trying hard.
    His a better centre then Sione imo and sione got a 450k deal.
    2yr offer around 500k is more then fair for both parties

    He's not as bad as some are saying, be silly to get rid of him now, give him at least another couple of seasons to mature..... don't forget, we have a very young team, give them some more time together, it'll happen.

    I'd keep him. I personally think his been our most consistent back. His bad games are not as poor as others!

    Agree, but I think he's more a $150k a year player... he will be good "cover" for injuries etc

    $100k over $200k a season at the most . Players like Pete that allow clubs to get their marquee players.

    Honestly Pete's the only one worth keeping.

    57 tackles 15 missed

    Thought Gags was a shoe in for most missed tackles this season but Sione and Pete will catch him easy in current form.

    Sione will miss more simply because he is more in the thick of the action, percentage wise it's Pete, Gags and then Sione, calculations made without aid of calculator.

    Sione's would easily be the worst if he play centre fulltime.
    Did he even make a tackle at centre yesterday?
    I think those 10 misses were all at centre.
