    I dont know about anyone else, but all we seem to hear about is players leaving.

    We have no "confirmed" signings...we have no "confirmed" sponsor...we have no confirmed nothing except for players leaving/being released.

    After a disastarous year I would have expected more. We cant be on the edge of the salary cap with what we have.

    I am worried for 2011. It has no shape at teh moment

    Mr Lowe we need some action mate and not just in NZ

    Not a bad looking squad, is it? Better run with injuries next year and we should be a real force!

    Absolutely not, and probably a reason why we NEED to release some off cuts...retain those young guys....

    Yeah a great looking squad, I reckon we have been spoilt with our recruits over the last few years eg. Kennedy,Kite,lyon.I think there will be a new signing annouced soon but I'm confident we will have a better season than the one just gone.

    Need another quality prop though - not much depth up front if there is injuries - not sure whether Palau can do the job in first grade.

    Believe me, losing Bailey can only be a good thing.

    Thank you for that YART Ryan (although we've been through this before).

    Can all those who keep moaning on about the fact we haven't signed anyone please just fcuking shut up.
    Look at who we have in the club instead of looking for reasons to be whingeing idiots.

    Can i ask what the obsession with putting a international centre in the back row?

    Matai isnt that slow yet,i do know Whare is a true talent but give him some time

    A couple of things, is Whare actually committed to us for next year yet? He did only sign a one year deal initially.

    Also Matai in the second row?  For sure, I initially thought his career was going to mirror that of Ruben Wiki and go from a hard hitting centre to outstanding forward but his shoulder/neck problems will be with him forever.  Its just too big a risk to play him in the middle.

    I love watching him play but I think hes one player we could have let go as I woudl have been happy with young Hoppa starting his first grade career in the centres.

    Forget where exactly Ryan has put this & that player.

    It's just a freakin' exercise on how bloody good our sqad is at full strength. That's all that needs to be proven. Game over.

    Agree in part Duff. But you have to agree one more prop is needed unless Cross gets more game time & improves on last year.

    I think Cross has the ability & should be settled by now. I do agree he has to step up next year but he has shown enough in the past that he can, I just hope he will.
    Young Cunningham is there to put pressure on him & cover for injury.
    There's also the option of playing a different style, a less bulk reliant one. I think that's the way we're heading. We have a couple of bulldozers but fill the rest of the spots with steppers, offloaders, ballplayers. It's worth a shot. The '07/'08 formula got shown up big-time this year.
