Would Newcastle be a good landing spot for Adam Doueihi or Alex Johnston?

Newcastle are interested in the out-of-favour Rabbitohs pair, according to Nine.

The report states that the Knights are likely to sign one of the two, but not both.

Danny Levi’s departure from the club has opened up room in the salary cap for them to make a move, with the Souths reportedly prepared to grant either a release.

Therefore, it could come down to which player Knights coach Adam O’Brien prefers.

Newcastle would ideally sure up their backline ahead of the season, and the versatility of either would help their cause.

  1. I’d prefer the other way round. It would be a shame for either to go but Doueihi offers more value and versatility.

  2. Todd Myrtleburg’s bunnies are looking great for this season.
    You know you got a strong team when you have to unload quality players like these.

  3. Seriously I cannot believe that player movements are still going on this close to the season.
    The sooner the Nrl come up with trade windows the better.
    Dragons might be half a chance this season as all our squad has trained together without player movement disruptions.
    Nothing wrong with wishful thinking
    Cheers

  4. cmonthedragons, agree… These blokes have been training for a month now…
    As all the clubs sat on their hands watching the Trell saga to unfold.
    Souffs have cap issues and having their usual panic fire sale.
    Souffs remind me of the Doors song.
    “… the future’s uncertain but the end is always clear..”

  5. Hope Doueihi stays , he’s a gun, Johnston has played for Aus, plus a junior , so why get rid of him, Richardson has said we don’t need to shed players so why do it, depth is important.

  6. Hang on, only a couple of days ago wasn’t this useless website trying to ‘sell’ these absolute Duds players to Storm?? Like weren’t they saying, oh look at these two magnificent players which Storm can have in exchange for JOC? đŸ¤£ đŸ¤£

  7. These guests jurno’s aren’t that intellegent , but they need to write something to sell advertising, just wish they would be more consistant in their articles, which they get off the newspapers

  8. I hear that money hungry Christian Israel Folau is chasing the big $ in New York . Religion is the biggest con job ever. I can’t stand greed and cowards who hide behind religion

  9. Fake Fan:

    You love the word ‘both’ so much , you used it twice unnecessarily. With ‘both Doueihi & Johnston are both useless’. One both would do it WoodKnot.
    Which also shows that you have no idea. As Doueihi looks a talented young player to start with.
    Then you finish it with ‘bothe totally useless’ . So your both has grown an ‘e’ that time . With that statement about them being useless repeated. Just genius!
