Re: Cowboys Team...

17. Shaun Fensom

Reserves:
18. Gavin Cooper

Checkbook anyone? The Cowboys are oozing forwards. While the contracts will be fresh, they must be under a little pressure and looking for an alternative for JT as well as paying out for the other JT.

Can't we pinch someone here?

Re: Adam Blair

Why do people say "Yes and no" without qualification? If Adam Blair came to us for 80K, I would say Yeeess If he came for 500K I would say NO way. Whatever he did, his form, his style did not suit our team. I think some forwards work better as a lone gun i.e. Hindmarsh, Fulton, etc. While others lik...

Re: Teddy plans to end career at WT

If you believe those type of numbers and stories... All I know is: 1) Teddy & Woods were a PRIORITY 2) They have not been secured 3) Someone has failed The rest is just fluff piece rubbish you WANT to believe! OK, so people who are content with the fact that the club didn't let itself get bent over...

Re: Spoon, will it be ours?

We'll win our last two games and finish in front of Woodsy's new club. Hopefully all 3 of Titans, Bulldogs and Warriors! I really wish the Warriors had had a more recent win though before we face them. The longer the losing streak, the closer they are to getting a win and I don't want that win to b...

Re: Live game thread *spoilers

He is not Thurston, but at or above the level of a lot of other halfbacks. His short kicking game needs work and I would consider bringing in a specialist coach to mentor him along the lines of Johns, Fittler or even Prince. Maybe Benji can help him out, not that he had a kicking game anywhere near...

Israel and Hunt are two more. Unless you want to argue technicalities by saying they moved from league to AFL.
I believe that you have defined the word "Downgrade" in that statement.

Re: Curtis Rona

Did Rona get linked to us because he used the phrase "on the bus".

Re: Player fire sale just weeks away

The bargains available in the fire sale won't be in any marquee players being offloaded and subsidised. It will be the new talent coming through that clubs can't afford to fit in their cap. Like the eisenhooths and the twals. Seems like Ivan's already onto that. That is how it should be. We need to...

Re: The Bus is FULL

We are talking bus full. I think that we have a few untried players in reggies that need to be given a crack. Heleta tatolo, lolo, sironen, marshall-king, and there may be more. Not a winning side, the reggies but from what i have seen this year, have never been able to put a steady side on the fie...

Re: James Graham

As much as I think buying Graham is a "luke warm" idea and Eastwood a NO.... I don't believe a prop hits their used by date at 32. Look at the sharks, Luke Lewis (34) Chris Heighington (34) and Paul Gallen (36). at 32, Graham still has mileage in my view. Eastwood is only 30 but he hasn't set the wo...

Re: Official - Josh Reynolds Signs Megathread

The bulldogs forward pack has to be the most overrated in the NRL. Currently, the tigers forward pack is outperforming them. Graham is good, but slowing down this year. Klemmer has no passing or offload in his game so the opposition can gang tackle him, Jackson and Tolman are okay workers, the rest...

We still need a halfback
We have Benji back now :mrgreen:
Haha im hoping Ivan wont try and use him as a half
well i rather him in halves than back row
Reynolds or Benji to the centers in second half. 3 strong ball players and we will see some results.

I watched it last night, and Hindmarsh was fantastic in his summation of Hayne. I've never seen Tallis, Fletch and Johns look so uncomfortable - suggest to me it's all brutally true Hmm.

Re: The Bus is FULL

What about Canberra.

If we are taking on anyone I would be looking there ahead of the dogs.....
Dogs I do like Aiden Tollman as a possibility.
Canberra, sure we can't get Papalii but maybe another forward.

Re: Is Taylor now redundant ?

If we have lost McQueen and Taylor then bye bye 2018. Was McQueen ever going to make that much difference? . Certainly the McQueen that I've watched in the last two seasons wasn't going to. McQueen will be here because he needs the money. I don't think he adds a lot to the team though. I think we h...

Re: Benji Marshall - Official..

I'm the first to admit I had the irrits with the way Benji left. I think he carried on poorly at the time, and he's admitted that himself. He went to the Saints and had a mixed bag there, managed to nearly win the Dally M there and was quite maligned despite often outperforming Widdop. His time und...
