I just hope we don't resume the hunt for Salkeld seeing as we nearly signed him 2 years ago. His life has fallen off the rails and he is a major basket case now.

Abraham would be a good pick-up. surely his rotten luck can't continue.

Also Abraham due to his injury problems would be a fairly cheap pickup

meaning if we signed a O'Donnell or O'Mealy would could still squeeze him in

and he can kick goals. Not that we're short of goalkickers.

Abraham/Tolar/Hinton.

Best of the bunch really. Then again, I havent even heard of quite a few of those players.

Agree with you both on Abraham. I rated him 3 years ago and expected him to kick on, but he's been absolutely rooted with injuries. That is obviously concerning, but like you've pointed out - if we could sign him in the same sort of manner in which we signed Afa (talented, but injury-ravaged careers).

Hinton would be a better buy than Thaiday or Tighe. I have such massive respect for Hinton after how he got up after he was pulverized by BK at Brookie last year. I think he's got the right attitude to go places. Thaiday is a waste of time.

Tolar is young and talented. Hardly the best young forward in the game, but possibly worth a look.

As for the rest of them... Knights had a damn good Flegg side last year, can I assume that a few of these off-contract are from that squad? They might also be worth a look. Very good Flegg team.

Actually, add Woolnough to my list.

Didn't rate him at all, but he's gone from strength to strength in my opinion.

At the right price he'd be a fantastic buy as prop/second row.

No thanks to Perry. Ever.

I reckon we pull out all the stops for Perry

Just think of the fun Perry and Minogue could have at a old boys reunion

i think that Wooden is a young fullback, as opposed the the oversized lump who played for us

Last i saw, Grant Wooden was playing for Wynnum and was doing the usual including a suspension or 2.
