Apparently the eels only have 200k left in their cap.. Talk about mismanagement 😬.. Any players worth having a look at that are on their books..
Nathan Brown, Tepai Meroa, Peng Terepo.
The rest are very average.
I'd add Gutho and Mau and that'd be it for me.

And when they got to the Grand Final they just couldnt score any points.

30-6 to Souths.

Balmain Boy is right, we cant run out with this Cleary looking squad and expect we will suddenly score more points this season. We need a couple of changes. It might not be round 1 but guys like this Dylan Smith have an opportunity if they work hard enough.
Cmon, did you see that Souths squad. All the Burgess and still had Mcqueen (when he was good).

I believe the Bulldogs had Ennis out or similar.
Google the teams.

Dogs had a good pack and bench but no points.

Same kind of balance we ran out with last year. We need points to make the 8.

South Sydney
Rabbitohs Position Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs
Greg Inglis Fullback Sam Perrett
Alex Johnston Wing Corey Thompson
Dylan Walker Centre Josh Morris
Kirisome Auva'a Centre Tim Lafai
Lote Tuqiri Wing Mitch Brown
Luke Keary Five-eighth Josh Reynolds
Adam Reynolds Halfback Trent Hodkinson (c)
George Burgess Prop Aiden Tolman
Apisai Koroisau Hooker Moses Mbye
Dave Tyrrell Prop James Graham (c)
Ben Te'o 2nd Row Josh Jackson
John Sutton (c) 2nd Row Tony Williams
Sam Burgess Lock Greg Eastwood
Jason Clark Interchange Tim Browne
Kyle Turner Interchange Dale Finucane
Chris McQueen Interchange David Klemmer
Tom Burgess Interchange Frank Pritchard
Michael Maguire Coach Des Hasler

Yea, well the Rabbit's have the far better team. Look at that backline and it's incredible.

But I take your point. I did not realise both teams were missing hookers.
Yea the Dogs should have had enough to make it more of a contest. I do remember watching the match, thinking the dogs are trying and playing a little dirty but it was Souths day. Burgess played on with a fractured cheek.
Yeah it was always Souths day, they seemed to be in control from the start.

Something relevant we should note is that a lot of these Souths players were troubled, rough around the edges and not the kind of players most clubs would sign.

Maguire might just have a way with this kind of player. If so im all for the Dylan Walkers and Jack Wightons of the game. We cant recruit elite level players but classy players with troubled pasts might be how we get there.
Its an opinion!

how quickly we forget that we have Thompson, our best player last year, he covers both FB and wing positions :sign:
Smith is a definite smokey for round one. He was chased hard by Madge when he was at Souths, but he chose us. A tall, fast, skillful fullback/wing. Exactly what our squad is missing. Unless we sign a star winger, Smith is our option.
I'm sure Madge realises our lack of pace and skill. Wouldn't be surprised one bit if at some point Smith gets a wing with Nof and Thompson fighting it out for the other. We need a change in game plan. Having players like Nof and Thompson as both starting wingers won't get us into the finals....
Thompson was a starting winger when dogs made the 2014 Gf.
Reynolds and Mbye were also starters.

Wasn’t Thompson fault we couldn’t score points. Undersize pack, injured starting props, weak backrow, no hooker, passenger 6, isp centre...,.and you blame the winger????

I like Thompson - he tries his guts out.
Saying that you also need to be realistic.... how many other teams would have him as starting winger?

Thompson was great this year. I’d have him in the side as the first choice winger.

I havent blamed the winger at all. Are you his girlfriend or something?

Seriously havent blamed him just saying the team they had lacked points.

Agree, Thompson was one of our best.
There were many reasons we came 9th(which wasn’t as bad as it could have been) but ultimately we never had a stable 17 the whole year.
The big let down was our middle forwards and execution on the edges.
Fonua and Cheekam dropped more balls than a preschool cricket match.

If you really watched the tigers this year you would lay off having a dig at the little fella.

Parra are ripe for the pilfering. We just need to work out which position we are after most.
Manu Mau possibly RHS 2nd Row and Matterson to lock.
Twal starting Prop. He looks massive in the pre season pics.

Only flaw is I think Manu Mau plays on Lawrence’s left side.
in Ivan we distrust

In that one game they lacked points.

They must have scored some decent points throughout the season to make it to the big dance.

Yeah Carney is Capt/Coach of the Byron Bay Red Devils, A struggling side last year.

While one of Brookvales greats Jamie Lyon takes the reigns at the Ballina Seagulls, A most dominant club in recent years with 3 or 4 Grandfinals in the last 6 seasons.

Brent Kite who in his first year coaching, Got the Sheild for getting the Tweed Raiders an upset GF win over Ballina in 2018.
And Danny Wicks is Captaining the Grafton Ghost.
A fair bit to get excited about for the Northern Rivers league fans in this upcoming season.

Ha

They actually did a very good song called "Never Again". Which amazingly got little to no airplay...
Unlike 'this is how you remind me' which made me want to throw my radio over a bridge!

That said I blame commercial radio more then anyone else. They have gotten a little better but it used to be X artist, ok they have 2 songs MAX. Yes only Thunderstruck and Dirty deeds for ACDC (ok they may have played other songs, but man it's hard to tell).
