    The small amount of game time T Rex got in Origin 1 shows that Stuart would be crazy not to pick him if he can prove his fitness

    Forget Tony Williams. Let him do whatever he wants. Give James Cunningham a run, or let Mauro play. Hell, I'd rather Tim Robinson.

    We could possibly have Whare, Lussick, T Williams all on the field at the same time - Yuck !

    Is Tony Williams, after coming back from around 3 months lay-off (ok, 15 odd minutes in one SOO game) the player to do the job though?

    My team this week would be:-

    01. Brett Stewart
    02. Jorge Taufua
    03. Steve Matai
    04. Jamie Lyon
    05. Regan Haika
    06. Kieran Foran
    07. Daly Cherry-Evans
    08. Jason King
    09. Matt Ballin
    10. Brent Kite
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Joe Galuvao
    13. Jamie Buhrer

    14. Liam Foran
    15. George Rose
    16. Vic Mauro
    17. Daniel Harrison

    He definitely is that man Ryan, even if it is only 20mins off the bench he will make a difference

    Talk about sour grapes. I'm just as upset as everyone that these guys are leaving, but I still wouldn't mind winning the comp again this year. These guys will certainly help us do that, especially Trex.

    I won't be cheering for the bulldog. Lussick and Whare yeah, but not anyone who signs with that pathetic corrupt joke of a club.

    Stewart should be left alone to get back to 100% , this seems like a desperate stab in the dark by Stuart......Glenn would not be fit for this game and should never be risked, the club should step in and protect there assets

    Ok, a bit of sour grapes on my behalf I admit, but I'm also considering our medium to longer term prospects - especially the chemistry our young halves have with the rest of the playing group.

    If Foran and DCE can start building a foundation with our next wave of forwards, it will bare fruit for us down the track.

    There's a lot to be said of chemistry. There's a lot to be said of "one common goal".

    I really think Tooves needs to blood Cunningham and others for many reasons. [hr]
    I completely agree. Tony Williams knew his exodus to The Bulldogs (with everything that was happening at hand) would be a slap in the face for our club, but it meant naught in the end.

    Then again, unlike yourself, I feel that towards "all" players that want to leave. Just an opinion, that's just how I feel. I just instantly lose any interest in them whatsoever.

    For mine, Tony Williams could train the rest of the year in his own backyard, never lace a boot for us again, and I wouldn't care, even IF we were losing.

    Sometimes there are more things too it though Ryan.

    Growing up around a lot of Polynesian families, I know how they work and if the rumours are right that Tony wanted to stay, but his old man wanted him to take the money, then they must look after their families 1st.
    I don't agree with how they do things but it is their way

    I wouldn't be surprised if the same happened with Hopoate

    For me, the players are on our books this year, we want to win a comp this year, we play the best available

    That's true. Yeah, ok - fair enough. But the crazy thing for me, is that regardless of the methodology, the result is the same - which is probably very narrow minded on my behalf.

    Either way, I support our team (the jersey). I have an empathy and affinity with the players pledging loyalty to us, and ride every tackle with them.

    Lussick, Whare, Oldfield & Williams though. If something happened to them on the field, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest now, except that I'd be happy one of our actual players that WANT to be here would get a chance.

    I think it's disgusting Tony Williams comes in after 3 months off (most by a very, very selfish act on the field by crunching a player on their head), and he take a spot from one of our regulars.

    If Harrison misses out, I will be very unhappy. Especially for a bloke that's spit in the clubs face by going to the one club that makes a transaction look very bad for us.

    I don't have a problem with them leaving as we were always going to lose a few after winning a GF. That's what the salary cap does. I just can't cheer for anyone that signs with the Bulldogs. Compared to the Bulldogs I love the Melbourne Storm.

    Trex would be a starting prop for the next few games in my team.

    See I don't have any problem with Williams walking back into the team, same as I had no issue with Glenn Stewart walking back into the Grand Final side last year

    I'm certain that the coach and players can't waite to have Trex back. Regardless of what he is doing next year I can't waite to have him back. Our pack has been soft with him out and we will need some mongrel today aginst a solid pack that gained confidence last week.

    We need all our best players on the park if we want to win another comp.
