What sort of cash would you need to buy a Peachy these days?
The spare change in my centre console would cover it..

Good call PJ. I’ll throw in some coins from under the couch pillow to seal the deal.

During one of the games over the weekend (might have been ours, but not sure it was), a commentator (Voss or Smith) mentioned that we had signed a 17 year old who is "as impressive as David Fifita". Any ideas? Apparently a gun second rower.

Esera scored a double for Wavell and was man of the match against Keebra. He reminds me of Asofa-Solomona he's going to be a massive unit once he's finished growing.

The Courier Mail has us chasing Riley Jacks who the Titans dont want.

"The former Storm schemer has fielded fresh interest from Canberra, who were keen to sign Jacks last year before he chose the Titans."

That surprises me given how he flaked out on us at the 11th hour last time. If he does come you'd think sammy would be moving on. Especially with Sezer digging his heels in (as he is entitled to do).

I quite like Jacks as a back up half. I think he's got some real talent and upside
If indeed Sezer and Williams are gone in 2020, i'd be pretty happy with him as our primary back up.

Obviously he'd be surplus to requirements if Sezer did dig his heels in as suggested by Zim, or that Williams is re-signed
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

I'd say his sense of self worth has diminished since then. He's was a rising star at Melbourne and is now shown to be an average back up half.

Ah it was more from our point of view. In some ways I'm a petty man.
More petty than a recruiter can afford to be.

Ryan Matterson wanting out of the Tigers. Falling out with the coach. You would take him on his current deal but I imagine he'd be seeking an upgrade at his new club. Also a red flag that he's been shown the door at 2 previous clubs so might be damaged goods from an attitude perspective.

I'd be happy with Jacks as a back-up to George Williams and Clive Chuchill medallist Aiden Sezer.

Doesn't mean his new club have to pay for all of it though...

Matterson on about $350k. He's one of the better back rowers in the comp so probably worth about $500-$600k. I imagine another team would happily take up his current deal and offer an upgrade.

Not sure how i feel about that if true. Do you think its to play williams with sezer and move jack to right centre? We lose a lot of strike if thats the case
