    We have two wing spots and a Centre spot being filled by one of:
    1. A player at 19 sacked by 2 clubs already due to poor fitness, and looks dreadfully heavy in the pictures I saw today;
    2. A player past it in Taufua (who just doesn't have 2018 game speed, explosion, ferocity and intensity);
    3. NSW Cup players.

    Brian Kelly was needed by our group. What he's done (and Green) has sent a really bad message to the rest of the group.

    Gets tough, throw your toys out of the cot and quit, no repercussions or concerns.

    When you start losing young players like Kelly, Lane and others, there is a deep seated culture issue.

    Do you have any of your pre season training vid's you could post Woodsie?
    I'm sure they'd be entertaining at the very least.
    You'd show these blokes a thing or two...

      Very valid concerns Ryan.

      Have faith in the Des buddy, he will pull a rabbit and a flyer out of the hat. Guaranteed.

        I didn't think Kelly signed an extension. I thought he was given the offer but he didn't actually sign it. Could be wrong.

        My reference to the pay was because you were seeking compensation. My thoughts were who seeks compensation for a player that is only earning $50k more than minimum wage.

        I wouldn't call it a debacle at all but each to their own.
        To me, this is just a case of a kid who is missing home and a coach/club who believes he's not that bigger deal to release. Nothing more.
        If it was Turbo, Jurbo, DCE etc etc I could understand your position but this is Kelly. A kid who had some flashy moments in first grade but ultimately struggled with his defence...sometimes resulting in games lost.

        At the end of the day. He doesn't want to play for the Sea Eagles. We don't need players like him in our club.
        We want people who will bleed for the club. Do anything required to win for the club.

        I'm sure Des has a plan and he's already got a solution. These things take time to come to fruition and us as outsiders must wait and see what happens as it happens.

        Each to their own though.

          On Uate's Instagram, seems like he's still training with our boys. If so, good to see comradery there.

            I totally disagree with you there mate . Des is a control freak . Control freaks oversee EVERYTHING

                Hasler certainly would have given the go ahead for the release mate. Kelly himself said he sat down for an honest chat with Des which led to the release.

                      Just a suggestion for the club: Can you caption each photo from the training gallery?
                      While I can recognise our current first grade players in the photos I'd like to familiarise myself with the newcomers.

                        Big Siro looks pretty fit and focussed. Really hope he has an injury-free season, for his sake and ours. He's a guy who can make a difference.

                          I disagree in this case. He wasn’t chasing more money. He’s not even guaranteed a spot and from what I understand he hasn’t really got much of a bump in money. If you’re going to lose the kid next year and we’re already in salary cap trouble better off moving on to someone new. Or paying someone forward and targeting someone next year.

                          Des is a long term guy. Remember we gradually built the first time around. Every move is calculated and that small bit of room he unlocks may allow him to target someone else down the tracks

                                  Things to note from latest training pics (and these mean absolutely NOTHING of course, but hey...offseason...)

                                  1. Funa is playing outside Dylan Walker on one side of the field, suggesting he is training for a wing spot on the left?

                                  2. Suli is marking up at centre again on the other side.

                                  3. I can see Matt Ballin's ball sack.

                                    Just noticed they are also now captioning each photo (except for large groups) with the players name - we have been asking and the club has delivered again. outstanding!

                                    Also in line with Freagles post above (offseason musings), Garrick has been prominent in a lot of photos/media. He also looks to have already put on some size. He and Funa appear to be pushing for outside back berths.
