I think the club needs to act now and upgrade HTF to the 30 man squad and sign him up for a couple of year.
Make it happen now otherwise other clubs will be sniffing around trying to sign him up from underneath us.

He's already signed with us til the end of 2022 at least. No one else at our club that could've scored that try today. His up side far outweighs anything else. The special players can adjust to NRL. It's not like he's 16.. He's 18 turning 19. He's an adult and probably is at the peak of his powers in terms of speed - think of a young GI. GI ended up evolving into a much different player, but that version of GI when he first broke into grade was something else entirely. Had speed to burn and an unpredictable talent that took opposition teams by surprise. We should take advantage of that while we can.

You're trying to hard, mate.

You'll get a lot more bites with a bit more subtlety.

HTF has been amazing but I wouldn’t be Ponga-er him just yet.

Drinky must be at 6, Morgan at 7. Jake hasn’t stood up like he should have.

Impressed with Hess. Thought he was lucky to play SOO off the back of JT genius. ( same with Cooper) but he seems to have gained some speed and hunger in the nines. Nothing like some youg’uns snapping at your heals to wake him up.
Got to give Hammer a go. Drinks goin crazy good as well.

Hess looked back to his prime and no longer should be looked at for a centre position with the depth we have.

Morgs in the centres would probably fire him up and get him back to his very best which only benefits the club....

With all the deserved praise for Drinky and HTF, I thought Marsters and Hess play has been somewhat overlooked.
Good. Last thing anyone wants or needs is the hype train to arrive at Hess Station again. He was far and away my favourite thing to watch in that whole tourney. CREED II BABY! DRAGO IS BACK!!!

Tabuai-Fidow is very unlikely to happen too (at the start of the season). We should just stick to naming the team Paul Green will pick and people should shut up about their own preferences
