Honestly - I feel less optimistic right now than I did this time last year. The only "bright light" on the horizon is Orford and Bell. Apart from that, what is there to like? 1. Next year our pack goes backwards. 2. We haven't any depth in our outside backs. 3. We don't have a five eighth. 4. We're saddled with King and Monaghan on long term contracts. 5. We're blighted by a meddling and interfering owner. 6. We're the worst-performed side in the NRL by a country-mile in the second half of the season. 7. Our defence leaks like a rusty sieve. 8. We cannot win a game without BK in the side. What happens if he gets injured? 9. We have bugger all talent coming through the ranks it seems. 10. We have the lowest turnover of any NRL club. Is it any wonder we all feel like John Brogden?
