Salford to get another big name?

James Graham is in the frame allegedly?

 

Would be a hell of a capture if the Dr gets him in.

He is an outstanding forward, but I would say there are a few in front of him when you are talking about possibly the best forward in the world.

 

I would think a very large contract, assurances regarding further signings and the future strength of the squad would be a couple of good reasons to start with as to why he would sign.

Jammer is highly valued by the Bulldogs and unless he is homesick - always a possibility - I can't see him playing in this country again, for anyone.

If Dr Koukash is willing to bid for Tomkins then putting a bid in for James Graham is'nt out of the question is it. Granted its up to the player if you chooses to sign or not but clearly Dr Koukash is setting his sights high and a player of James Grahams stature would be very much in line with how the Dr operates.

Obviously, the prospect of playing alongside Rangi Chase, Michael Dobson, Sonny-Bill Williams, Gareth Hock, Harrison Hansen, Cory Paterson...

I didn't want to list all the names we've 200% definitely signed in case it caused the internet to return a 'disk full' error.

I wouldn't say there were many front rowers ahead of him. You could maybe argue for Sam Burgess, Matt Scott and James Tamou, but that would be it.

On a serious note if James Graham was to arrive back on these shores in a Salford kit then the pack would start to look like its shaping up nicely and I'm sure Nobby would be very happy with that as a starting point for his first real season in charge.

 

Griffin, Sa'u, Morley, Meli and possibly Graham to start with, Fages playing alongside players like that could really shine, who knows a red revolution could be really on the cards.

For James Graham to sign he'd probably take at least 300k of the cap. There's three outstanding props in the world in Graham, Scott and Tamou, all can be as destructive as eachother on their day. He's not going to Salford.

Nah Janmer is a true scouser, once they manage to get out of Liverpool they move as far away as their money will let them.

Graham is under contract with the doggies for next year so I seriously doubt they would let him go.

I went & watched the doggies all last year and the fans absolutley love him, and Dessie praised him after nearly every game.

 

Every year the NRL publish a list of the 50 best players for that season and Graham was the highest ranked prop on the list (well ahead of Tamou & Scott). Even if he left the doggies (which I doubt) pretty much every other NRL club would be chasing his signature.

 

I think Graham is just another Tomkins pipe dream from the good doctor and something to try and placate the ever dwindling number of fans.

Or a name plucked out of a message board. Koukash may not have even tried this time.

If he comes back to England it would only be to Saints I would imagine.
