    - Much younger squad
    - Robbos last year with us this year i believe ? (Love him to bits but getting old)
    - Younger Bench (More versatile)
    - Major Signing in James Graham (We can olny hope) !
    - Jamie Buhrer to fill that utility role i.e (Second row,Hooker)
    - Release Brent Kite,Matt Cross,Joe Galuvou,Terrence Seu Seu)
    - Looks already more consistent and feared !

    What are your thoughts ?

    I'd rather keep Kite than Rose. And  Cunningham should surely be ready next year, if not he will join another club prepared to give him a go.

    If Jamie Buhrer has a good season he may move off the bench into the starting line-up.

    Your right mate Buhrer looks set to have a big year, i hope he does, he may just push Rodney to the bench !

    I think King is further gone than Kite. 

    I think Hoppa needs to be playing first grade or we'll lose him.

    T-Rex is also off contract this year as well. So maybe on the way out.


    Graham would be on my wishlist.
    Luke Burgess would also be handy of the bench

    People will prob chew my head off but i think its time to make some big calls & clean out the dead wood. EVERY player coming off contract should be informed they are on the scrap if they dont perform. Only players safe for me are Lyon , Both Stewarts , Matai (if he is not suspended for 70% of games) , Foran (who i still think will be THAT potential star) & potential future stars Buhrer, Lussick ,Hoppa, Cunningham, Oldfield & DCE. The other 6 can pick themselves & yes i know theres a lack of fowards mentioned but some BIG NAMES are living on past reputation imo.

    Kade snwden held off signing with the sharks. Would be cool to gazump the knights and sign him. A friend of mine who is a passionate dogs fan, reckons the bulldogs have already signed James Graham for next year but I don't see how they could fit him under the cap.

    The only way they could afford Graham is if they unload Eastwood and Ryan

    I'm going to enjoy watching Oldfield playing every game next year (excluding injuries), shame it'll be for another team.

    This what I think:

    1. Snake
    2. Hoppa (Robbo released)
    3. Jamie
    4. Matai
    5. Wolf
    6. Foran
    7. DCE
    8. New Big Name Big Bopper
    9. Ballin
    10. Kingy
    11. Choc
    12. Buhrer
    13. Glenn
    14. Cunningham
    15. Kite
    16. Lussick
    17. T-Rex
    18. Rose
    19. L Foran
    20. Ricardi
    21. Mauro
    22. Tim Robinson
    23. Daniel Harrison
    24. Dean Whare
    25. Seu Seu
    26. Blake Davey
    27. Oldfield

    Is that enough for you.

    The new prop is paid for by releasing Robbo, Joe G, Cross & Rodney. Before you start screaming releasing 4 & buying one, let's face it, Cross is a liability, Rodney is injured half the time and Hoppa is an instant replacement for Robbo, whilst Joe is simply too old. Those four between them would probably free up $350k for the new prop.

    **** me, what makes you think this is about last week. The fact is we are short a top line prop. Another fact is that Robbo is getting towards the end of his career is on good coin and Hoppa is at the beginning and is cheaper. No one on this Forum denies that both Cross & Rose have underperformed for more than a season now.

    Please stop the hysteria about people suggesting team improvements, open your eyes and recognise the obvious weakness in our squad that needs fixing, FFS WE NEED ANOTHER GOOD PROP!!!!!!!!!!!
