    If you could wave a magic wand over this team and replace just three players in this team at the end of the year who would you choose....

    Orford
    Kite
    Matai

    I think that would get us many $$$ to replace them with guys not past there prime.

    Orford, Kite and Matai for me too.  Bad, soft, and stupid.

    Matai needs a rest. Lyon and Farrar in the centres.

    All of them after today. Not a good player out there... actually Rose was good... but that's it.

    Farrar had his worst game for us.

    He really didn't deserve to be the 1 to score that try, glad someone did though

    I would definitely keep the Eagle mascot, he's got a lot of ticker.

    Matai - In fact i will help him pack

    Orford as bad as he can be, we would be worse without him, not because of his play just being there, if we can get a class replacement I would take him

    Kite - Whatever King had the other year, Kite has it now, Mr soft prop.

    Hard to disagree with the OP.

    I dont know exactly where the problem is, its got a lot to do with attitude that is for sure

    Perry is also soft.  He was pushed back more metres than he went forrwad today.  Kingy was on fire until he was injured.

    Does this magic wand of yours let you know who you are going to replace these 3 players with ?? No point sacking guys if there is no back up plan.

    There is an obvious assumptiong, hence the "magic wand" that they would be replaced with others.

    Let's rephrase his intended question

    "Who is performing the worst?"

    Obviously they will be replaced with someone, but my point is who ? No point punting Orford if we are getting Jason Ferris or Michael Monaghan back as his replacement.

    Mini has re-signed already, but

    Carney I would take, he may have grown up and his kicking game is outstanding.
    I would take Hoffman probably too
    Roberts from the dogs would be worth buying too

    **** there are plenty in that list I would take

    Don't know about Matai but the other two can **** off. Perry has been **** this year as well, so he can share a cab with Orford and Kite to the airport.

    What I can't understand is why guys like Kite/Perry/T-Rex, with all of their bulk, don't hit it up as hard as a guy like Moi Moi? Moi Moi is no bigger than these guys mentioned. Moi Moi would be a good swap for both Perry and Kite!!!
