I’ve asked this before but no one seemed interested... what are your thoughts on faitala mariner from the dogs?
Dogs won't let him go. That being said, he'd be a great signing for any squad in the NRL.

Despite Thomspon doing really well i think we could do with a class outside back as our next big signing.

preferable a fullback.

I believe it was entirely a sarcastic comment and not a real signing.

Ken Maumalo? He could be our future right winger to replace Noffa. He can still attack and can actually defend. I reckon that If we do sign him our future back 5 could be.

1. Thompson
2. Maumalo
3. Marsters
4. Fonua
5. MWZ (or possibly even Tui but I doubt it)

Or we could move Maumalo to the left wing and Tui could go to the right.

Why do people keep bringing up Tui? Most of us like him but he just isn't showing any signs of improvement in ISP or that he deserves to be promoted to the NRL. Actually, he has been a major disappointment and some have suggested that he is both unfit and still carrying a knee niggle.

Speaking of the game changer, I would probably welcome barba now given Tui isn't working out. Pay him what he is worth, but on a strict one strike policy.

He is on a one strike policy. It happens automatically when you have 2 previous positive drug tests.

Those saying the English centre is small need to remember a couple of things:
- he is young, and even our u20 players often take some time to develop
- the super league players do not generally train at anywhere near the NRL level. Most of the local outside backs do not carry much bulk or muscle

He's been going alright this season but in the past Maumalo has had hands like feet.

I was thinking.... Mansour is asking for 500/600K.... We could offer 400k, maybe a little more with this idea:
Penrith if they want to keep him now need to pay 450k.

The more Penrith spend on Mansour.... The less they have for N Cleary!

We need a good back. We def need to improve our defense at the back wing or else the grit our forwards put it does not matter. .... I suspect DWZ could also be an interesting idea, as MWZ is doing alright here.

How many places in the top 30 do we need to fill and is there a date when all positions need to be filled by.

I keep hearing 27 spots have been filled. Milne freed up a spot.

Maybe Garner and Drinkwater will be offered a contract?

Yah, Maumalo has been shocking in the past.

What's the story with Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad? Lots of hype around him when he debuted, but doesn't seem like there's room for him in first grade at the Warriors. No idea how he's going form wise, but he looked like he had plenty of natural ability when he has played firsts.

Could be looked at as a long-term fullback.

My bucket list is a big hard running forward a strong and fast center and fullback for next season this is not to much to ask.

That would be the remake. In the original the role played by Charnze was played by a bloke named Tui
