Garrick (deserves another chance)
Schuster

I agree he did carry on at times but Walker has matured a lot in the past 2 years. The niggling has gone & might i add with it his effectiveness on the field. Yes he’s been injured but not of his doing! I tend to think people have inflated his on field niggling & out of hours behaviour. The pain killer overdose & door bashing were stupid to say the least, the DV issue was dismissed & NONE of us have any proof whether he did what he was accused of or not.....but people made their minds up & had him guilty with NFI what happened. The on field incident was a provocation from Scott & unfortunately Walker responded & copped the blame. There are far worse playing right now yet we seem to go hard on ours. Since that time he’s been quiet & matured. Injuries have played a part in his input on the field obviously but a mature, injury free & happy Walker is a devastating player & one who would be hard to replace if he left. Yes he’s one of my favourites & I’ll continue to defend him. The ‘love’ afforded to the Trbos gets a bit much & the dislike & constant bagging & let’s get of rid of threads re Walker, Suli, Marty plus others hits a nerve. Anyway I hope he, Suli & Trbo have a good break, a good preseason & come out firing in 2021. A backline including Trbo, Walker, Suli, DCE & Schuster is a scary proposition for any fvcking opposing teams!
I agree Dylan has noticeably matured, but he needed to because his trajectory was not great...

David Fusitu'a is a player of rare ability, but his career seems to have stalled and the last few years he has not prospered at the Warriors. But not through lack of talent. I'd be quite excited if we were after him.

I suggested if we granted AFB's release we should try go after Fusitua but thought he'd realistically be no hope, very interesting. Given Saab is following manly on insta and has been training with Fainu/Suli/Funa lately i'd say Saab and Fusitua would certainly solve our issue of having no 'high flyers' in the backline. Our halves would be so shocked they wouldn't know what to do, they'll nearly have to start putting bombs and cross field kicks toward our wingers again!

Turbo, Fusitua, Walker, Suli, Saab, Foz, DCE + Schuster. I like it, good balance of speed, strength and height. Walker may have picked up some ball-playing skills from his improved stint at 5/8. Garrick should be first backup, then Parker and Harper. Quite solid depth and a lot to prove for all of them. Suli/Saab/Fusitua/Walks would have to cement their spots though with form.

That would be suuuuuuch a backline!
How did you find out Saab was following Manly and training with Manly players?

I started to lose a bit of hope when it was reported Hook wanted to keep him. If we snapped up Saab AND Fusitua that would be an early Christmas!

Edit:
JAC would be the next 3 Christmas/Birthdays

Someone here mentioned that he followed manly and I checked to see for myself. Turns out he doesn't follow the dragons but does in fact follow us. Then I noticed on Saab's instagram story that he was training (looked fast!) with some manly boys together at some random park, think it was Fainu, Suli and Funa + a few others. It wouldn't still be up I don't think.

I am starting to really hope we go after Fusitua! Good opportunity to solve a major problem for us by boosting our wing stocks. He doesn't neccessarily have to carry us or anything, although just his height and speed alone is an asset if trbo, dce, foz/schu all stay fit. Although he's also shown to take some strong hitups out of trouble.

Fusitu'a is a gun, albeit been quieter past couple seasons. He is the perfect winger mould tho: big, fast, great finisher. Would look great in Maroon and White.

I would get rid of Ruben and walker if it meant we got JAC. Last night again reminded me how far of the pace we are as a team, specially our wing positions.

Come one Des get it done.

I would sign Addo-Carr on 800k for sure. He is definitely worth it. He tears teams apart.

One of the noticeable things about Melbourne that I really respect is their attention to detail. There is no other club in the competition that gets close to the concentration they play with. They have such a simple game plan and they simply refuse to do anything but stick to it. I wish we would kick to the corners like they do. DCE's kicking game the last few years is a big reason why we suck. He has no method. He just makes it up on the spot so no wonder he fluffs it half the time. Jarome Hughes makes DCE look like a chump just by doing the basics well. No headless chook stuff, just control.

One probably on $400k meanwhile the other on 1.4 million !!

800k for a winger. 1st time I'll disagree with you mate. We need a hooker, winger and a prop... cant throw 800k at a winger. Totally agree regarding Hughes. Watch nsw destroy DCE's qld this year on a 3 peat

If DCE was a clear thinker he would dominate. Such skill, but gets lost in the chaos of his mind. Hughes had a blinder against the Raiders. He just executes a clear and effective game plan and runs the ball at the right times. If DCE did this nobody would touch him. DCE under Belly-ache would be a different player in my book.

It's quite simple if you ask me.

Just work out what we can afford to pay JAC. Offer it to him.
If it's not enough then that's not in our control.
We can't spend what we don't have.
We need pace. Imagine Turbo hitting JAC with the cutout pass instead of Jorge.

Cotric is going to the Dogs on apparently serious money . Guess the fact that Manly already have D C E ,Turbo , Suli and Walker taking up some 2 mil of the cap would restrict a play for Addo - Car , Terrific player , would be a great asset to any side but probably not Manly in the current circumstances . Storm may find some way of retaining him but will eventually have to fork out much more for him to stay .

If True, would be an amazing signing. He is a gun. Big, strong, fast. His carries returning the ball from 20m are really strong and he is a great finisher. Surely not a surplus at Warriors???
