Cowboys laugh at every other pack.
On the Napa front, i have heard from a source close to nathan brown that Dylan is extremely keen to be here next season. but because the roosters have let go of Kane Evans to the eels they are very reluctant to release him. But he will be here by 2019 at the very latest.
Also heard from the same source (very...very close to brown) that browny has said Kayln Ponga is the most talented footballer he has ever seen and is doing things he's never seen on the training paddock.
Said before and after Ponga signing he has the potential to be the best player in 2-3 years time.
Just gotta become better then big Taumalolo now haha.
Also needs to add some bulk to his frame otherwise he will be ragdoled. Size will come in time though.
Napa is NO chance of getting a release this year, but I f he has another “no show “ episode like the Prelim final no one would want him - he has 12 months to redeem him self
We don't need Napa this year, actually the team is looking very strong especially if Sione and Watson cover centre but a new centre would be good.
Some of our signings will only be with us for 2018, Hodko, Heighinton as well as players that won't cut it.
Napa could be a very handy pickup for 2019 especially if he doesn't go MIA during 2018.
Watson to centre and Lamb to 5/8 and yes please to Napa
Watson wont be center can just about guarantee that
Brown confirmed in a pressed today that Watson will have the 6 jumper from Rnd 1 and to lose next year. Looks like Sione will be in the 3 jumper unless they find someone better. Saw a snippet of video showing Sione sprinting with the outside backs
If Watson doesn't hit his straps at 5/8 he could be an option at centre but Sione is more likely id have to agree ...But from what ive read Brown still seems to want him in the forwards and that would give Watson a chance at centre and lamb 5/8 if Watson doesn't blitz it ...
Don’t know why everyone keeps suggesting Watson at centre. I’m not seeing it. His best position is somewhere along the spine and Brown will give him every opportunity at five-eighth (though I’d prefer Lamb).
Sione is definitely an option at centre as we have an overload of backrowers. Think he needs to work on his lateral quickness though being more isolated on the fringe.
I’d give Ross a long look at centre. Played a couple games not last year but the year prior I’m sure. Had big games too. Was surprised when Brown went away from that. I think he could be the best candidate to play opposite Moga and have Sio and SKD on the wing. Sio doesn’t seem to be a favourite on this board, but I thought he was solid/safe last year. I don’t mind him.
Ross tends to come in to centre a few times per game anyway.

Yea Ross has always been super impressive at centre. I think a player of his ability (ball in hand) seems to look better the earlier they get the ball
Says here that Napa wont be going anywhere.
Also says Lambs management are after a 3 year comitment
So according to the lurker, Dylan Napa wants to come play with his friends.
After the effort over the weekend and towards the end of last year I don't really want him.
Napa has eyes on Newcastle
Dylan Napa is telling team-mates at the Sydney Roosters he wants out - to join Nathan Brown’s Newcastle steam-train.
Napa isn’t happy at the Roosters and made little impact in the shock loss to the Tigers on Saturday, making just 71 metres from nine runs coming off the bench.
Napa is close mates with Mitchell Pearce, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Aiden Guerra, who quit the Roosters over the summer to join the Knights.
I’m hearing the Roosters won’t let Napa go - but will be asking him to produce more on the field and get himself back in a good frame of mind and stop kicking stones.
I've said it all along he is not very good at all and would be a waste of money.
You have got lots of room to move in the cap but I just don't see any worth or value in signing him. Goes missing big time in big games.
Depends on the money. I like Napa. Big body, only 25, an enforcer defensively, but he needs to improve in attack. More touches and better go forward. Can’t just excel in 50% of the game and expect to be paid like a top tier front rower.
I don't care how poor an athlete's form is if they're not right between the ears you can forget about maximum performance.
He hasnt done anything worth singing him in ladt years finsl serries or round 1 this year.
If Roosters pay part of his salary thats another story.
