    Is he worth a look at as our 5/8.
    He is reportedly after 700k and the Eels have offered less which he has rejected.
    I really like the way he plays, all heart.
    He has played plenty of NRL at 5/8 and looked good the couple of times I seen.

    Injuries could be an issue though.

    Article about him being on the open market.

    Very good player. He’s all effort which isn’t something I can say about many of our players this year.

    Funniest comment I've seen all day, although it's not quite as funny since it's true :(

    I really like how gutho competes on every play I'm just not entirely sold on him as a 6. Josh Reynolds on the other hand.

    If we can get Phoenix Crossland up to speed with his defence by July, he is just about ready to play 5/8.
    He is the same age as Lamb, Cogger, Sione and Ponga were when they made firstgrade.
    He has a bigger boot on him than Pearce, is one of the fastest runners at the club, has a great passing game - just can't tackle.

    Sounds like a Brown type player. Get him in.

    To be fair to Phoenix he doesn't shy away from defence though.

    He has a go, but he is pretty easily bumped off by any firstgrade standard forward.
    He's only 18 - he has a while to get up to speed, except for us really needing someone with his other skills right now.

    He needs to watch cherry Evans and the way he approaches defence. I've notice Daly does a mounting horse/ lasoo style of defence where he uses the forward momentum of the attacker and as they run he grabs onto the shoulders and swings his body around to take out their legs. Very effective for a smaller guy.
