Good signing but I’m not sure where this leaves Lewis Murphy.

Taufua is mainly a left winger. Murphy is a left winger. Unless we plan to move Taufua to the right but then we just signed Evans and have Lineham and Kershaw for another few years.

Thought we’d have been in for a centre unless we plan to play him there.

All that said he has a ton of NRL experience and I’m looking forward to seeing him play.

Blimey you do worry about nothing at times. I think WP has made it more than clear that he rates Murphy. I also think it's pretty obvious where he's going to play Taufua, certainly this season.

Try and enjoy the moment :ROCKS:

I’m no expert, but I think he will play centre. A replacement for the recent retirement.

But that recent retirement hasn't played centre for a long time.
Hall and Lyne in centre for me and let him play wing.

While Lyne is out....by all means put him in centre.

Oh I’m happy with the signing. Not negative at all and one that could turn out to be an absolute belting signing for us.

I’m sure as some said he will play centre. If he hits the ground running Lyne may find it hard to get back in considering his poor form and seems that he’s lost another yard of pace. I like Lyne but he’s bulked up a lot this past couple of seasons.
