Big name signings, or clever signings, can completely shape a season. Kalyn Ponga’s arrival has transformed the Knights. Although big name additions don’t always guarantee success (see the Bulldogs) it usually doesn’t hurt.
We take a look at the top 10 signings at this stage for the 2019 season. For the purpose of the below list we have left off mid-season transfers like Mbye and Woods. The below are confirmed and official only.
The Eels’ pack have been well beaten for most of the season. Despite Tim Mannah’s improved form over the past few weeks Parra are crying out or a big man up front to lay the platform. Junior Paulo returns to the Eels a far better player than when he left. He will have to find the motor for bigger minutes in blue and gold but his signing is a step in the right direction.
