    Ok, so we have to lose a few players and still try to be competitive. This is the price we pay for success. It would seem to me that we need to cop the pain and secure the players that represent the future of our club. If we were to release Brett, Glenn, Matai Joe G, & Kite, that would surely free up enough cash to retain the halves and T-Rex. The roster would then look something like this:

    1. Farrar
    2. Oldfield
    3. Lyon
    4. Whare
    5. Wolfie
    6. Foran
    7. DCE
    8. Lussick
    9. Ballin
    10. King
    11. Choc
    12. T-Rex
    13. Buhrer
    14. Mauro
    15. Robinson
    16. Cunningham
    17. George
    18. Harrison

    That side will do me in a rebuilding phase, a little short on depth, but still a good side that we can afford.

    seriously that is still a top 4 side, with potential to go all the way.

    I though Farrar only signed for 2012 on a 1 year deal? other than that still not a bad side for next year

    Agree about rebuilding.
    1st priorities for next 5 years:
    - DCE
    - Foran
    - T-Rex
    2nd priorities:
    - Lyon
    - Matai
    - Stewart brothers
    - Choc
    - Lussick
    - Buhrer
    - Ballin
    Everyone else is expendable in order to keep the 1st priority players.

    Having a Beatle in the side will surely be good for crowds and sponsorship.

    I'd have Buhrer much higher on that list.

    If we had any sort of cash id try and lure a fullback.

    Couple of NZ fullbacks around that would want a start i rekon , Glen Fishiahii and that Omar (dont know how to spell there last names but il put it as if you were to speak it) SlimeAnkle lol. They wont get a start anytime soon at NZ with Locke at FB but they can play.

    Also id keep Tafua over Farrar if Farrar was to be contracted but i dont think he is?

    Top 4 for mine are:
    1. DCE
    2. Foran
    3. Brett
    4. Glenn

    I'm not sure everyone realises just how important Brett is to us, not just in his brilliant attack but also in organising our defence. He may be a bit more expendable if we had kept Hoppa, but if we lose him now it will really hurt.

    Having said that, I can't see us keeping all 4 players.

    George Harrison I think is a little bit too old to play footy. I did think he was a good musician though. Yeah yeah yeah.:)

    There is no way we should give up the Stewarts.

    I cant accept that no matter what.

    They are as manly as Fulton, Eadie, Krilich, Randall, Thompson, Menzies, Lyon etc

    Yeah Tooves, Eadie, Thompson, Cliffy, Menzies, Krilich & Randall top of the "Manly thru & thru" one club players. The Stewart bros can make that list if they stick around.

    Not only would he have been a bit too old to play footy, he is also just over 10 years dead.

    I agree, but IF as has been reported, Brett has already signed with stmerge, then we will have little choice.

    The point is that hard decision will have to be made and I for one am looking forward to uncovering the next big thing.

    If you have Foran and DCE you won't be rebuilding you'll be gunning for the title.
