    at seasons end its time 2 bite the bullet, and put a broom through our stale forward pack. 4 mine we have 2 cut loose kite,rose,cross,galavao,mauro ect and throw the chequebook at the 2 best forwards on the market.the first bloke that id get is blair from the melb scum,whose off contract and it would be lovely 2 stick the knife into those lowlifes again! imagine blair choc and stewart in backrow with young guns buhrer,lussick,cunninghum.also need a big name prop but off the top of my head dont know any that are off contract. i believe with a couple of big poppers up front we have got the backline 2 turn things around quickly. any thoughts of any other big names we can grab? if we dont snare anyone i really fear for the future.

    Are you suggesting we ditch 5 current 1st grade forwards to buy 2 props ?

    Cross, Rose & Joe are only pretending to be 1st graders. So he's suggesting we cut some dead wood and replace 2 1st graders with 2 better 1st graders.

    i beleive manly will let go of Kite,gulavou,cross,maybe mauro,and possibly terrence, i also beleive this is rodneys last year ? depending on how they perform we may see some get the boot, that still doesnt leave us enough money to gain 2 ''Big names''. But yes im with you ! Id love to see Blair in maroon and white.

    There'd be more in the account for the cheque book to spend if our CEO could manage to find a sponsor.

    we shoulda done it last year and made a play for aiden tolman, he was killing it last year and he is doing the same in tonights game.

    i had high hopes for kite this year, but his leg drive and mongrel is gone.

    Blair is overpriced. No way he is worth 500k a year.

    I think Luke Douglas is off contract at the end of the year, he would be a great buy. He often gets overshadowed by Snowden, but he is a killer prop with a high work rate.

    I'm pretty certain Rodney signed for 4 years. Still got one to go after this year.

    The young bloke i think would be great is Andrew Fifita -young Tigers prop. Not only aggressive but good on his feet- massive future. The fowards we have are  not hopeless- simply average who play straight up & down. I almost thought the new Dogs frontrower might be an option till he dropped it 4 times in a row, prob end up a gooden tho. For me its Fifita but most will prob say a bit young & not  a leader but i think he is almost capable already at a young age.

    Id like to see Cunningham and Lussick both given a fair amount of time in the NRL this year to see how they handle it. Maybe we won't need to import.
