He's 6 foot and just over 15 stone according to Wiki so smaller than Chan and not big, even for a second row. He is, by all accounts, really strong which is borne out by how he is on the field, as you say. I agree Chan looks more suited to the back row and could use his undoubted strong running to better effect there imo. More than happy to see how he goes at prop though if that's his favoured position but he does need to sort his discipline. I love his enthusiasm but it has a tendency at this stage to overspill into avoidable penalties.


I’m 6-1 and he was taller than me and I would say he weighs more than 15 stone.

There's a wall chart at Robin Park that puts him around the 6 foot mark so I'm sure it's about right.

Is this a real 6'1 or a Tinder 6'1? :wink:

Hahaha. To be honest my height was 186cm on my MOD 90 when I was in the military which is 6-2 but my posture is awful so I always say 6-1, I was also holding my young lad in the photo so maybe I was hunched even more. He looks a similar height to Lockers though who I always thought was 6-3ish. Bateman though is a second rower who played on the edge and centre a lot, Chan is saying he’s prop so even more undersized for his position. I like the lad though, as many have said he seems to have a great attitude and he doesn’t half run it in hard, he could maybe get to contact a meter or two longer than the average prop to to his pace.

Josh Schuster situation is interesting from our point of view.

It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Had Isa not picked up his injury wouldn’t think about it, and hopefully it isn’t the case he is out for the season.

If he is though I believe there is the option to deregister him.

This would open up cap and quota space.

It appears there is no interest in the NRL and he is about to become a free agent with $200k pay off.

Like I said hopefully Isa gets back playing but if he doesn’t he could be an option on a short term deal for the rest of 2024.

I see a lot of similarities around his situation and when Lautiti became available and similar freakish skill set if he can get his head right.

Is confirmed Jon that Isa is out for the rest of the season?
I hope that he isn’t but if he is then Schuster would be a very interesting option if he wants to come to SL.
Isa will be sorely missed as his defensive qualities and his all round fitness levels are perhaps only second to Liam Farrell.

No nothing confirmed and obviously the ideal world solution is that Isa returns before the end of the season I’m just thinking out loud.

As a pure guess I would imagine he would want a decent wage, do we have that space under the cap?even if we can write Isas wage off?

He’s walking away with $200k pay off and no interest from other NRL clubs.

Wages are usually dictated by demand so I don’t think realistically he can expect a big wage for the 2024 season.

Josh Schuster doesn’t have the qualities of a Wigan player in terms of toughness and attitude IMO.
