    Not writing off this season, just discussing who retires and the possible team/squad for next year? I love killer as much as the next manly fan, but i feel as though this is his last year. I think last year was his last quality year, as he just looked completely off the pace and un-jamie-lyon-esque tonight. He turns 35 this year (or is it 34?), and with matai, snake and a couple others who will retire and who will replace them? I feel its obvious lyon will retire, with walker going into the centres next year and youngster Tom Wright taking number 6 (or a purchased 6, maybe even isaac john). Matai looks fairly fit, surely will play next year too. And Im guessing Snake's farewell year will be 2017 too? Taupau and Trbojevic are the future of our pack, and we need a few others players to combine such as Myles, Brown, Lussick, Knight and Lawrence. Will lawrence play next year?
    Possible team for next year:
    1 Snake 2 Taufua 3 Walker 4 Matai 5 Trbojevic 6 Wright / John 7 DCE
    8 Lawrence 9 Parcell 10 Myles 11 Taupau 12 Buhrer (NEED to keep him) 13 Trbojevic

    14 Koroisau 15 Lussick 16 Knight 17 Brown / Leary

    Symonds HAS to stay but unfortunately i feel he will go to melbourne or the like... Lussick and Leary need to stay as well as Leary is quality and Lussick will either become a valuable player for us or impact off the bench.
