    Any news on this? Thought I heard that Tooves mentioned that we were still hoping to sign someone before next Saturday at the season launch.
    Gee not long to go.

    What's the rush? They'd probably already have their own boots so we just need to have a clean jersey, socks etc waiting in the dressing sheds. Doesn't matter if they are not familiar with our plays, just run straight ahead and tackle anything purple.

    No rush, agree but it was indicated it was still apparently still on the cards.
    Just wondering amongst the forum who might know ?
    Moon dog could be handy for us when we come up against the Dessy dogs.
    A mooning dog would be appropriate!

    It'd be a braver man than me who would be prepared to pull his pants down in front of Bulldogs supporters or players.

    Who would be left at this stage....only option would be to entice a British Prop to leave the Super League, or pick someone up from the bush (eg like the Storm did with Brian Norrie).

    I think our depth is going to be mightily challenged this year....hope I am wrong.

    Mark O'Meley is playing for Wyong in NSW Cup....

    ESL wise I'd look at those Wigan props but would need some extra coin - Flower, Taylor

    We shoulda signed lama tasi before he went overseas. Cheap, looking fr an opportunity and a manly junior.. Still had loads of potential

    My guess is that someone will step up and do a "Lawrence" again this year.

    Whether it's Starling or Sao or Turbo I don't know. But we have a habit of getting the best out of young somewhat unheralded recruits.

    Turbo will be a gun no doubt but maybe he needs one more year.

    This isn't an option for this year but we should look at sione Lousi from warriors, I think he is off contract next year. He looks big and damaging

    we dont need any more gambles. Starling Sao Lui and Trjbojevic are enough to work with Lawrence and King. Sene Lefao can play prop too. Glenn Stewart or Horo are big enough to fill in as well if needed. We are okay. Give the Faooso money to DCE to keep him happy.

    The Warriors have big wraps on him, I doubt they'd let him go. Apparently he's recovered from the knee injury that kept him out last year and he's been training the house down.
    I'd take him and his brother too if we could get them.

    Theres definitely some big Polynesian props getting around in New Zealand. I think our team could benefit from a gigantic islander and i hope we pinch someone from over there. The Warriors dont have dibs on all of them and cannot keep them all. A chunky Fui Fui/Conrad Hurrell/Matulino type unit

    Why give more money to someone who uses the "captaincy" lure as a bargaining tool to be re-signed that kind of statement does not sound like a leader to be respected. (hope he was misquoted or i read it wrong as that comment has tosser written all over it)

    No problem wanting to be captain but to use that in negotiations lacks respect for the position and comes across as him expecting the captaincy.

    Foran is next in line and has earned the respect with putting his body on the line performances and his leadership with actions mentality and seems to have the players respect more so.

    Yeah sure. If that is what you need to do to be a good captain, Foran better get in line behind Choc and Matai.

    Age is a factor with your chosen players considering Lyon might be around for another 2yrs on top of losing their cool too often.

    I would have no problem with your choices ahead of DCE it is just that Foran has the nice mix of high intensity and calmness about him, not too laid back but does not lose his temper too often either--- more just showing his passion.

    DCE gets my vote for next Captain ahead of Foran, who is already an irritant to the Refs with his constant critique.
    But, we already have co-captains, so the two halves will share the role once Killer calls it a day.

    DCE's skills are more encompassing than Foz's, who himself has often commented on this fact in interviews.

    They both share the control of the game without egos, so we don't have to worry about factions creeping into our Team :angel:

    If we could only keep one, DCE is the most talented of the extremely talented duo. His SOO and Kangaroo stints as a bench forward, were a revelation last year.:cool:

    I hope that Manly give the young Props a chance before buying in another.
