    Obviously we are fast approaching 2016 and with a new year comes new signings! So I'd like to know your opinion on how we should develop our 2017 team and squad! My 2017 squad is as follows-


    1.Stewart
    2.Tafua
    3.Hiku
    4.Matai/Lee*
    5.Trbojevic
    6.Walker
    7.Cherry-Evans(c)
    8.Trbojevic
    9.Parcell
    10.Liu*
    11.Knight
    12.Leary/Lane*
    13.Taupau

    14.Brown
    15.Lussick
    16.Myles
    17.Chee Kam*

    My squad looks like this but I think we will sign 2 forwards, so for prop I'm thinking one of these guys-
    Klemmer-Would be a massive coup but unlikely
    Liu-Good prop at roosters and would come cheap plus he is only young
    Moa-Getting older could be a problem
    Tamou-Pretty sure he will be at Canberra
    Second row options-
    Papali-Bit of size and mongrel
    Cheekam-obviously cheap and rumours he will be back after his year at tigers
    Lane-Young and massive!
    As for Matai retiring could be a possibility-
    Walker-Could shift to centre to allow tom wright at 5/8 spot
    Brenko Lee-No positions up for grabs at Canberra could be a great buy

    Predicted signings
    -Issac Liu 3 year deal
    -Chee Kam 4 year deal
    -Lane 2 year deal
    -Lee* assuming Lyon retires

    Resignings
    -Tafua 2 year deal
    -Knight 3 year deal
    -Leary 2 year deal
    -Starling 1 year deal

    About a day at a time I think..?

    Another thing - anyone who thinks Tom Wright will play first grade before around 2020 is dreaming...

    1.Stewart
    2.Taufua
    3.Hiku
    4.Matai
    5.Trbojevic
    6.Bird (walker hope this deal isn't already done)
    7.Cherry-Evans
    8.Trbojevic
    9.Parcell
    10.Tamou
    11.Buhrer
    12.Gillet
    13.Myles

    14.Brown
    15.Lawrence/Lussick
    16.Taupau
    17.Knight

    Prop:
    Klemmer- Think the Tigers will throw massive money at him
    Moa- As mentioned getting older
    Tamou- The Canberra talk is due to his wife wanting to be near the Australian institute of sport, he doesn't want to go to canberra and Bozo could get him to the NSW institute at Narrabeen as the perfect compromise

    Second row:
    Lane- very skilful will play for Australia dogs won't let him go especially with Klemmer expectedly heading to the Tigers and T-Rex freeing up big money.
    T-Rex- will be pretty cheap, was the best player in the world in 2011 in my opinion. Could be useful and can see Carty getting a lot out of him.
    Gillet- Broncos apparently getting T'eo and are a chance to get Inglis, Gillet will be the 5th second rower in Wayne's eyes and so I can see him moving on, especially if Jai Arrow kicks on as expected

    Five-eighth:
    Walker- please no can't stand this bloke, he has some pace but I really think he is ordinary and a terrible influence to bring to the club. See the better options below!
    Jack Bird - wants to play 5/8 won't get it at the Sharks, perfect foil for DCE
    Kodi Nikorima - will be stuck behind Hunt and Milford could be ripe for the picking, has looked really good for NZ
    Jackson Hastings - With SBW possibly coming back to the roosters could be squeezed out due to salary cap. Nice organiser with a good running game that again would gel with DCE.
    Luke Keary- again good organiser would go well with DCE

    Predicted signings
    - Jack Bird 3 years
    - Gillet 3 years
    - Tamou 3 years
    - T-Rex 1 year

    Resignings
    -Taufua 2 years
    -Knight 3 years
    -Buhrer 3 years
    -Lawrence 2 years

    I love the thought of having T-Rex back.

    I'm in the minority but whenever he gets the ball I always expect something. Of course most of the time it hasn't happened (lately at the dogs) but I believe it would if he came back to us.

    He never really wanted to leave but had to as the money was just too good at the dogs and we were hamstrung with our cap space then.

    I want a hard running backrower who will cause havoc and I believe he will....even more than Taupau.

    I assume that squad is based off us having a cap of 8 billion dollars

    Why do we keep having these future squad threads.

    Fark me! Relax and look forward to season 2016! Start talking about season 2017 when 2016 ends.

    2017 is the go.

    You don't recruit for the next year. You recruit for the following year, and then the player pressures his club for an early release. The club then looks backward if it tries to hold onto a player who is already psychologically out of there.

    What about 2020. Nobody seems to be talking about 2020. Seems to me if you have a good vision, 2020 is the go.:p:party::giggle:

    Apparently Klemmer is going to sign with us for 2017 for these reasons-

    -Loves our facilities
    -Big fan of Barret from origin
    -Massive deal that he can't resist
