    Joe gone for the year and worrying reports on King.

    Perhaps our new young recruits are not quite ready to step up to nrl standard.

    Perhaps we should be be looking for a big bopper to sign on a cheap deal from Oz or England before 30 June?

    They are good prospects by may not be key contributors this year.

    Think we should be on the hunt for:

    115kg plus
    25 years plus
    6 foot 3 plus
    No-nonsense battering ram giant

    I agree , losing Joe and possibly King for the season leaves a hole too big to fill with who we have atm .

    Dogs season turned last year with last minute signings before June 30. Other clubs have benefited as well. Now that we know where our injuries lie, we should bolster squad accordingly.

    Hoping someone smarter than me would know.

    Big George fits the bill..... There's obviously a fair amount of doubt from Tooves though...

    We are short on props so this is Big George's chance and he should take it with both hands just like he takes a big mac

    108 kg or so would do.

    As long as he has a big heart like Matai 108 kg is more than enough

    Are you saying you don't like the way Matai plays, @[Darren] ?

    No, love the way Stevie plays but we don't want the suspensions and visits to NRL. He is too valuable and must stay on the field.

    How does the salary cap work with Joe being out for the season? Do we get to replace him under the cap or do we need to sign someone for minimum wage so as not to go over the cap?

    Lopini paea or remy casty would fit the bill.

    Stromquist just killed it for Wyong against a big vulcans pack. Over 200 metres gained I am surprised we got rid of him.
    Surely Ligi Sao should get a go soon.
