Evalds
Faraimo
Leilua
Mamo
Feki

Looks like a quality back line (yes, I know Feki has to get fit for more than 5 minutes before any of you start)!!

He's a disciplinary nightmare, he'd be great in Super League when playing though

West tigers are on 7 am Sunday on sky so if he's not banned or injured he may be playing, they usually say what a players intentions are for next year or who's interested in em.

He'd have to be marquee money to get him out of clutches of other Aussie teams

No chance we can afford him

I thought it was Powell who didn't want marquee players, but the board were open-minded about it.

Radford will surely use the marquee if its offered to him so this would be a great choice

That’s what I thought to. It’ll be interesting to see what his thoughts on marquee players will be next season.

Taken from the Tiger Talk Newsletter in 2019:

"To be able to comfortably utilise the marquee player rule we would need to be achieving average crowds of 9,000 (excluding discounted community tickets and Kids for a Quid tickets) regardless of performance and league position."

I remember seeing something along them lies too hudds only way realistically we could get marquee signing is if a sponsor would be willing to cover it maybe one of the people others have mentioned before wanting to invest in club could do this as sponsor of player would get lot of publicity for doing so

From what it says in there I would be hugely surprised if we have any chance.
Wage bill looks ridiculous.
Talks of missing family in Canberra during lockdown at Wests- so an overseas move not likely solution.
Plus do we have any pulling power? Unless Radford has more clout than I know and we were prepared to go marquee route (but again, as mentioned elsewhere, our stance on marquee was with the caveat of having 9k average). Plus if we went marquee I think we should be looking at a scrum half to throw big money at.

Reading that and reading between the lines sounds like a bad attitude I wouldn't want him even if we could afford him.
