Appreciate the injury report (better than nothing) but the only bright news in all that is Haumole's back, thankfully.

Otherwise, it's all negative:
Croker progressing - return - who knows
Turbo progressing - return - who knows
Lodge - returns round 23, wow
Arthur - 4 months - ouch!
Woods - 6 weeks - need him for backup now
Seibold said turbo should be back after our next bye round 17

They had Tom coming back for rd 18, he's getting close to a return now, that gives him 8 games if you take out the remaining 2 byes. Lodge back for rd 23, if he comes back at all, well, here's hoping.

Honestly......played 10 games for the Chooks last season.
He's played 9 of 13 games this season.
31 years old.
Let's give him TWO years.
**** this recruitment team.

Next minute, Storm sign a promising 23 year old bustling player from The Panthers.

Totally agree. Why not give him one year and see how he is going midway thru next.
What team is knocking down the door to take him away from us?

Absolutely Correct. Cannot believe the absurdity of this deal. A cut and paste straight from the Shuster deal. Watch his form totally deteriorate.

Pretty harsh. He's been one of our best this year, barring injuries he has been a buy of the season candidate.

The disposable attitude some posters on here have is not the kind of thing that fosters a culture and strong morale in a club. Loyalty and investment in people needs to be part of the equation. And I'd much rather keep the Nathan Browns of the world than some young c**k that will probably just hold the club to ransom in two years time anyway.

31 years old is not old if the body will hold
He has played tough and bashed his way from season to season for many seasons and lets hope his body does hold
2 years is very generous form Seibold
Its Seibolds call and it is his player roster and it is his job on the line

Tbh there may be a few clubs sniffing around after what he’s shown for us so far. Cheap, experienced, hard edge who can lay down some standards. I mean I’d have him here for the next couple to replace Wood duck. I would have extended by a year tho as well.

And the Panthers sign another Tiger, Asu Kepaoa.

The promising player the Panthers have released to the Storm is immediately replaced by another they see more potential in.

The top tier clubs are continually reviewing their rosters whilst our recruitment and retention commitment are boiling the kettle, searching for the scotch finger biscuits, waiting for a re-run of an episode of The Golden Girls to start.

I'm privy to certain aspects of player negotiations in the NRL and we, as I've said before, need to rebuild with youth not with players who are held together with double-sided tape or don't have the ability to remain on the field longer than a month due to inability to maintain control of their mind during a match.

There is one particular person at our Club that I'm staggered still holds a position as part of the recruitment committee... absolutely stunned to be honest.

Need an injection of youth to resuscitate a few of the bigger bodies is what I see from watching them, 2 spots in the 30 to fill this season and the team need an edge backrower for this season.

Brown is now the 26TH player in the 2025 squad, there are 3 upgraded players in the 30 next season that don’t appear to be in the coaches mind this season in Matterson, James and Faulalo.

I wouldn't be surprised if Matterson and James get found new homes.

I was thinking along those lines, not much is going to change development wise with their respective games, the signing of Schoup was one where I don’t see where Faulalo sits now also, he is no spring chicken either.

I see more growth in Faulalo. Different style of back to Schoupp. I rather like the variety in our backs. Be nice if we had that deliberate mix in forwards.
