Manly Til I Die
- May 25, 2015
I forgot about Hethrington. Yeah I get your point but we should still be able to sign one or two big names. A cotric or addo carr would of done nicely. I think we still need better wingers, a prop and backrower. How sure are you garner will be here next year?What tends to happen is that fans start taking for granted the stars already in the team and only see 'signings' as a like for like. The fact the Dogs are signing some good players and we aren't can skew the appearance of our squad. The reality is that we already have a team full of stars who just had bad years due to myriad of reasons.
Flanagan didn't set the world on fire at the Chooks and he had arguably the best team around him in the competition; something he won't have at the Dogs. Ditto Addo-Carr who is a fine player but doesn't everyone kick arse at the Storm? Matt Burton is a rookie and certainly won't set the world on fire. If Hethrington was so lethal, he'd be in the Panthers 17 this weekend; instead he is nowhere to be seen. Cotric has no ball skills and is just a battering ram.
I think our best 17 for next year should be:
Hoppa (he'll be better with a preseason under his belt)
Buy a utility
