      It looks very much like our 2015 team which failed to make the semis for the first time in a decade.

        At least when there's big name signings & other players on the way, it shows there's plenty of money to spend.
        Then add the funds from the inevitable Lyon/Snake nearing end of careers & the other big names make sense....personally have no drama's with the Cordner/Klemmer calls long as, the Turbo's & Knight (who will be a star) - are looked after first & foremost.....

            Guess the question is who out of those would make this years 17? Probably Foz because we have no 6 (lol) but apart from him would take any of them of those in their positions..?

            Apart from Foran - Hiku, Buhrer, Lui, Ballin, Sao would challenge for a spot in the 17 with Gutherson & MCK - making plays with solid trials for a look in

              I think you are being very generous there. Sure they may challenge, but almost all of those would have found themselves getting very familiar with the NSW Cup...

              Happy to see them all moved on-too many under achievers in that group.

                Yeh look - agreed apart from Foran, Buhrer & Hiku , the rest would more be waiting for injuries to open up a door, about the only others who would have been considered even under dire circumstances are the rest I added.
                Plus add the fact, over Foran after 2015, Buhrer is still a lottery with injury

                The Hass even makes the bench on the reject team...officially dubbed (with your permission Ryan), the John West XVII.

                There are quite a few in the list below too. Let's face it the salary cap is a jigsaw puzzle and we will always have some "filler players". The question is can the coaching staff get the best out of the "filler players" if injury strikes?

                Lewis Brown (Penrith Panthers, 2018)

                I could probably pick 7 out of that side that I would have kept . Enter bozo , and all due respect for those boys but with the signings we have made we have a much larger chance of doing the job on anyone who comes before us .

                  Quite a few only signed for 2016, I think we are in for some big signings as well in 2016 for the 17-18 years

                    Dumb question

                    Do we actually have enough players in the squad...especially reserves? Or do we think there will be some further tier 2 players?
