    He seems like a very good attacking player from the few times I've seen him play, but he must have faults with defence or something if he isn't good enough to get a regular spot for the Titans.

    Change of scenery might do him good. Have a look at Brent Naden this year, couldn’t even crack our side. He killed it for the panthers this year keeping some first grader in reserves. Similar ages as well.
    Robert-Davies has previous first grade experience as well

    So Matt Soper-Lawlor v Tyronne Roberts-Davies in the Qld cup this year. Both played wing every game.

    MSL scored 23 tries in 23 games - TRD scored 12 tries in 16 games

    MSL 187cm and 92kg, aged 23 - TRD 188cm and 98kg, aged 22

    MSL averaged 101 metres per game - TRD averaged 97 metres per game

    Both made less than 3 tackles per game at just over 70% tackle efficiency.

    MSL was first winger picked in Qld cup team of the year with 50% of the vote - TRD didn't make the side.

    So TRD is a bit bigger and a bit younger, but MSL scores more tries and was slightly better in metres run and tackle efficency (74% to 71%)

    So the Knights site says there is signing news coming in 48 hours.
    The three clues are the movie "big friendly giant", the movie "Twins" and an ad for Fiji.

    Must be Sione - he's friendly, he has a twin sister, and he might have been to Fiji.

    Paper saying Ramien signed 4 year deal with Cronulla so does that mean we are not paying him for 2020 so money in bank for new signings.

    Well he was the one who demanded a release so can't imagine we are paying him since we have released him let alone for 2020.

    Levi's manager has been suspended by the NRL over some financial matter, so he is currently not able to negotiate with other clubs.

    Another signing hint on Twitter, Terrigal and a brick wall being destroyed...

    Mitch Barnett maybe?

    I think it’s still to do with the saifiti boys. Wrecking ball and terrigal because that’s where they’re from.

    These extensions aren't particularly exciting, but miles better than the hype job for buhrer exercising his player option last year.

    We’ve made a new signing. It’s a back with nrl experience. Will be announced soon.
