    Okay so the season is officially over so for mine, it is time to look towards 2017.

    With that in mind I would drop Vave as he is off to Parra (as great as he has been) as well as Starling and with Walker out go with a team like this (pending second tier cap and NRL clearance for Meehan and Hoppa

      I wish they would but NRL coaches never seem to think that way.

        I'd make Tommy and Taufua go have their surgeries now, so they can still get a pre season in before 2017. That also allows Snake if fit, to come back and finish his career at Brookie.

          I can't make up my mind what team is needed. Better get a team list from @Turbo to really set the record straight.

            Yes, anyone with injuries has to be worked on now.

            Tom is at such a crucial point in his career. It is imperative that he gets well and doesn't end up with a chronic ankle problem. He is young, he should be able to heal completely and the time off will just fire him up to come back to a future that looks so promising.

              A coach focused on the team's future rather than his own survival would use the remaining 3 rounds to blood who he can for next year. However his ability to do so may be constrained by the second tier cap. I agree with letting Tommy T have his surgery now and I agree with in giving the opportunity to young players to play first grade. Whilst Vave is on the payroll we should get our pound of flesh and he is giving it his all.

                Probably more realistic to move Matt Wright to fullback and give Parker another go on the wing.

                  Knight/Hoppa/Meehan for sure

                  Api at 5/8th. Sober up. One of the worst buys of the season. Imagine a hooker that can't pass. He is a good hog thou.

                  Bring back Snake.

                  Do we have any young backs?

                      I'm pretty sure Meehan is not on an NRL contract, but a NSWRL one. So he will not be allowed to play, even if they wanted to pick him.

                      Ignoring the fact that we can't due to NRL salary cap restraints it would be great to blood some more players.

                      but alas with have to deal with reality

                      If the likes of tommy and taufua go for surgery and with walker out then we can get dispensation to play youngsters despite where the 2nd teir cap sits. Mind you it is only like for like so would need to be outside backs.
