Probably not. I'd say Smith being his international coach and the man who's give him his break at that level will have more of a baring.

No. I think the fact that Offiah is his agent will mean he goes to the highest bidder.

Got to say this is a top signing

Am i correct in thinking that Myler is Offiah's first client?

If so then he will be wanting to get as much as he can out of the deal.

Many moons have passed and still no signed deal at Brisbane

Show me a recent link of Brett K to SL. He's a no simple as, no need to explain.

As for playing Lockyer at 7, after many years of watching the guy play the sport at the top level, I feel, as I suppose many will on here, he ould perform the role of scrum half with ease.


How unbearable is all this toing and froing from one name to the next?

Sometimes I yearn for a return to the days when the only gossip you heard was in the pub, and most of the time you took it with a pinch of salt.

Offiah always calls Myler the next Sean Long, is he going to move into a caravan and bet on Salford to lose? :lol:

Lockyer despite having dodgy knees could still do a job in superleague, he isn't a flash in the pan sort of NRL player who would fade into insignificance he would rule the roost and the Lockyer factor would propel us into the top 3. If we were in for a prop they would come for slightly less if they had the chance to play with Lockyer.

6- Lockyer
7- Leuluai

14- S.Tomkins

Also Morley and LMS.

I've read your posts you must take smarties what they sell in nightclubs which make you dance and talk crap.

Adam Mogg went to Catalans for the chance to play with Stacey Jones.

5 years ago if you had the chance of playing for Newcastle with Johns in the side for £70 000 or just some rag tag team like Souths for £80 000 or maybe £90 000 you would sign fo Newcastle for the Johns factor, you would have more chance of winning trophies. Shimples!!!

If we signed Lockyer we would have more chance of attracting better players, we wouldn't keep getting knocked back like we do. See Lynch, Carvell, Long.

But if we did sign Lockyer we would need to sign 2 props an loan out Prescott. Morey and LMS would be my choices.

It has occurred to me that IL is deadly silent because all the deals he's made with a new coach and new players is all boxed off, signed, sealed but just the delivery date to be agreed.
If that is the case then it's just a matter of wait and see.
No mention yet of the players OOC who may be retained or released. Only one has been re-signed that I know of, Tommy.

Lockyer would be fine as a 7 Aus teams (inc the national team and Brisbane) often operate split halves during long periods of the game.

I still would sooner see a younger partner for Sam, someone for Sam to build a lasting partnership with. I would also be worried about the size of cap it would take to get Lockyer. We already have Fielden on a big chunk.

now lets be serious for a minute, amusing insults aside, why do you think signing Lockyer would propel into the top three? also, doy ou honestly think that any player would take a pay cut just so they could be the same side as Lockyer?

if i where stll plaing an i got offered £95k a season to play at Wigan with Lockyer or £105k a season to play at Wakey with Brough, Wakey would secure my signature.

Lockyer ain't god, neither was Barrett, some fanas need to come back to reality
