    What might our lineup look like without any new recruitment after these legends retire/move on or their bodies quit? possibles:

    C. D Walker
    C. Jesse Ramien
    5/8 Tom Wright
    1/2 DCE
    L. J Buhrer
    2nd R M Tapau
    2nd R Jake T
    P. B Lawrence
    H. M Parcell
    P. N Myles

    Bench (in no particular order) and some of these will also be gone no doubt
    D Lussick
    B Leary
    J Starling
    L Brown
    T Satini
    T Symonds

    It depends how far you are talking 2018 I think we will be with out them snake and Matai leave in 2017 and Lyon in 2016.

    2018 side (without those 3)
    1.Trbojevic
    2.Tafua
    3.Walker(gk)
    4.Aitken/Holland/Wright(sign)
    5.Ramien
    6.Keary/Wright(sign)
    7.Cherry-Evans(c)
    8.Tamou/Asofa-Solomona(sign)
    9.Parcell
    10.Lawrence
    11.Buhrer/Gillett(sign)
    12.Taupau
    13.Trbojevic(vc)

    14.Brown
    15.Myles
    16.Willaims(sign)
    17.Starling

    That's my preference side with players signed
    If we keep the same squad without any buys

    1.Trbojevic
    2.Tafua
    3.Walker(gk)
    4.Ramien
    5.Lavaka
    6.Wright
    7.Cherry-Evans(c)
    8.Starling
    9.Parcell
    10.Lawrence
    11.Buhrer
    12.Taupau
    13.Trbojevic(vc)

    14.Brown
    15.Lussick
    16.Myles
    17.Fonua-Blake

    For me the club should be chasing hard for Keary, Aitken And Gillett. But for those 3 replacements of the veteran 3 it's simple

    -Keary in for Lyon-Walker shifts out of 5/8 back to centre and Keary goes to 5/8 from Souths and makes our backline lethal again. Or if wright becomes a star he can be our 5/8

    -Aitken in for Matai-Aitken would replace Matai perfectly becoming our defensive centre. If we can't secure Aitken then wright can go to centre or we could sign Holland.

    -Tom in for Snake-Tom will be ready in 2 years to replace snake and Tom will be replaced on the wing by Ramien.

    Hope we get Coote- he covers all the back positions plus is a goal kicker :)

    I fear for Matai's health if he goes through past this year. His heart is bigger than his sense of self preservation :angel:

    He and Choc can retire on medical insurance together, reminiscing about Manly :)

    I'm really hoping we go for Coote also I think he would be a great fit and would slip straight in. Has a cool and collected demeanour with a solid running game and a very handy ball player. If I was in recruitment he would be my main target along with Tamou / Gillett

    I'm starting to like the sound of Coote but are you guys thinking of him as a 5/8? If so I reckon he would be a great buy

    That's just it, he truly does have the skills from 1 to 7 :)
    Thursday's win was largely due to him, great game and gave JT a rest, whilst Morgan was MIA for most of that game.

    Well for starters we did have these two young and competent backs called Peta Hiku and Clinton Gutherson....who the owners are happily paying for, to turn out for other clubs...

    Yes most definitely if snake doesn't retire we will have him and turbo. Either way Tom will be fb.. Coote would be a solid 5/8 and add fluency to our backline

    Last year everyone on here was calling hiku fat and slow and lazy and a poor defender now he"s suddenly a major loss. I know he was playing out of position but if he didn't move on would be playing nsw cup unless TB relegated Lyon or Matai to nsw cup? In reality would of been better to move Matai along and keep Hiku but there would of also been an uproar. With lyon looking to play another year and Matai signed for 2017 and Tom being promoted to first grade Hiku would of been playing in nsw cup. As for gutherson he's still just an avg winger at best and too skinny and can't tackle to play center. He is a full back but we have Tom.

    Not everyone. And those that didn't rate him were wrong.
    But yeah, we're a fickle lot around these parts…
