    If I were Saints, I'd be asking James Graham a former team mate of Dufty, to put a good a word in.

    To add a bit of box office to a dull team and comp.

    Time to assess an internal replacement.

    Avoid a season with a player who has gone one year too many.

    I think that is pretty decent.

    Mal Meninga, David Fairleigh, Ben Barba (a season and a half) all signed for a short stint and were brilliant for us. There's no doubt others aswell.

    It's not a long term signing but it bides us further time to bring in a long term replacement or to allow our younger players to develop before stepping in.

    He is the nearest to Ben Barba I have seen . Would certainly do us . Absolutely to get Jammer involved

    Shows intent to play a certain way. The right signing can make a big difference. Just look at Meninga,people still talk about him to this day.

    It gives us a bit more time to either bring in a longer term player or a younger player. Also who knows,he might like it here and stay longer.

    Ive no problem making a short term signing like Dufty if we know where we stand from the beginning. If he comes over here on a one year deal looking to get himself an NRL deal then hell have to play out of his skin to do so and we get an excellent full back. Chances are, with the abundance of quality full backs in the NRL, he might not be wanted after one season anyway.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    I must be the only one on here with serious reservations about Dufty. Those clips show his highlights, and his attacking play was never in question. Pity we can't find his 'lowlights reel' as well, you know the one that shows all the dropped high balls and missed 1 on 1 tackles. Welsby gets criticised for being 'dodgey' under the high ball, well Dufty aint any better.
    Don't get drawn in in by the likes of Stevo into thinking he's some sort of superstar just because he's an Aussie.

    To be fair, Barba was dodgy under a high ball and regularly missed tackles- he was still dynamite ball in hand and a real match winner (when he could be bothered). Dufty has similar speed agility and elusiveness , without the off- field demons.
    Would be great to get him for a season.

    Even if Coote stays I would like to see Duffy instead of Naiqama. It may mean that the ball would leave the forwards a bit more.

    Why? I’ve never seen him play anywhere but fullback. Signing a bloke to play out of position is Cunningham tactics

    Is all this chat on the Internet about James Bentley and him being out of contract and therefore likely to move on rubbish?. It strikes me as crazy as he puts in 100per cent every game.

    If he leaves it won't be because Saints don't want him or don't rate him. It'll mainly be because Leeds have massively blown us out the water with their offer and we have other priorities perhaps.

    He's liked and rated by fans generally. Nobody doubts his defence or effort. Not seen much in attack for Saints to judge ( although at Bradford looked very capable) .

    Clearly there is a difference between his salary expectation and what the club is prepared to pay.

    Wait and See.

    Thanks for that. As I live close to the South Coast, my finger isn't on the pulse of whats going on. Apart from here, which is the best resource for reading about what's going on in the world of RL?

    For the game over here probably Love Rugby League, for the NRL I'd go with Clarkey's Rugby League Column.

    Are you on twitter? If so, then https://twitter.com/RugbyLeagueLiv2 is as good as you'll find in my opinion in terms of up to date news. They don't just repeat what they hear on message boards either, they're normally quite relaible.

    Hardaker wasn't signed to play centre, he was signed to play full back and won player of the year there in his first season with them. He only moved there once they realised French would be better there than at half back. Plus Hardaker had played centre a lot before for Leeds, in the NRL and internationally.

    Can we sign him first before we start to argue the merits of playing him out of position or not.

    Or, more likely, he and his sgent are stirring things up. If he wants a move, adios. Club is bigger than him

    Leeds? I thought a different team was signing him?
