It Would be stupid if we didn’t .
It wasn't a suggestion...
What's the club's thoughts on Liddle at the moment? Is he still seen as the future? Or do they think he'll never make it?

Ivan has gone out if his way a number of times to emphatically state that the Tigers see Liddle as our future no 9.

Liddle is the future...if his start to the year wasn't botched ..I'd say he would be the now..

Outside Backs : Jonus Pearson, Ken Maumalo, Robert Jennings, Richard Kennar,
Tom Opacic, Tyronne Roberts-Davis, Tyrone Phillips, Gehamat Shibasaki, Brian Kelly,
Tyrell Fuimaono.

Hooker : James Segeyaro, Issac Luke, Apisai Koroisau.

Prop : Jack Hetherington, Tui Kamikamica.

Second Row : Rhyse Martin, Corey Oates, Jack Gosiewski, Ethan Lowe, Marata Niukore, Brock Gray.

I dont think Klemmer would like to move to Newcastle
With the Roosters signing the English winger Hall watch them release Tupou
Newcastle can have him instead
Nathan Brown is enticing Klemmer to break his contract with a massive offer. Klemmer is on 650k money talks hence Klemmer comments. Dogs won’t release him though.
I would say Klemmer is looking to get out
Hence his public comments about leaving if it helps the club
He wont want to wait 3 to 4 years before the Bulldogs can start to build a strong team again
Give them McQueen for Klemmer
Hell give them Sue too
You're amazing - you just think - we'll give them x and Y and they will go.

I see Keegan Hipgrave is off the list , signed for 2 seasons with the Titans

I'm a big fan , big body , goes hard ,doesn't take a backward step , not intimidated

Would have looked good in a Tangerine ,White and Black jersey

Was mentioned several pages back that we were interested in Adam Milner .
He just re-signed for 3 years with Castleford

Second Row : Rhyse Martin, Corey Oates, Jack Gosiewski, Ethan Lowe, Marata Niukore, Brock Gray.
There’s not much to get overly excited about on that list. Everyone came off contract last year so it’s slim pickings this year. Hopefully a few players come onto the market at seasons end.

Oates has worse hands than Mark Minichiello

Will never crack it as a 2nd rower

We could be a chance if we offer him a chance in the 2nd row, give him the trials and a round or two and when it’s notvworking out back to the wing. Would be an upgrade to our back line.

I would give Holland a go a go - not too expensive and a goal kicker.

Played well last night - even though the opposition was z grade.
Yuck! Ordinary player at best (IMHO).

Some good suggestions there, particularly in the outside backs where we are very, very thin. I would also look at Nathan Davis. A risk looking at someone that cannot make first grade for a team that are in contention for the spoon, but I think Parra's backline is set for the incumbents regardless of how bad they are going.

Props and backrowers there is not much available. Need to decide whether we spend coin on a proven average first grader (like Lowe) or look for player with potential.

I think we are a ranga or 2 short, would have a look at Harvey Livett, he is also a goal kicker.

Playing under a tight rein did not suit him - he was off the leash last night again and was quite good.

Maybe you were not watching.

Farah still much better player we would of been in the 8 if had him at start of the year
Which games would he solely have reversed the result of? If we had won against the titans, we would be 2 points out of the 8.

Big part of our problem with average/plodder players moving on from the 30 x NRL squad is that there are few, if any, players really pressing for a chance at promotion from the ISP team. Ive no problem with holding onto our coins if there is nothing much on the market until next season starts and we are looking at 2020 season but we do have to replace positions in props, back row, wing and centres.

AND perhaps just as importantly make the succession planning decisions on:

a/ whether to retain Brooks and forego a play for Cleary (or any other halfback).

b/ Yes, I'd be more than happy if Farah wants to go around for another year as it puts a decision off on Liddle's future and gives him 2019 to ease his way forward one way or the other.

c/ Marshall, has also earned a opportunity to make his call if he wants a further year, but I wouldnt be surprised if he doesnt, meaning we are vulnerable with Reynolds future. Think we have to give Gamble an opportunity (not just 1 game)- just to know.

d/ Sue seems to be HIA vulnerable and potentially 1 injury away from medical retirement.

e/ and finally try and move McQueen on, he has been a failure this season and I cant see further time making any difference.

I reckon for my 2 cents worth make offers (not overs) to Ethan Lowe, and a some props, back rowers and winger- centres from whats left in the market and also take a quick look at the ESL market. AND yes, begin some immediate soundings out for 2020 season signatures. I still have a hunch Manaia Cherrington can fill the hooker gap if Farah doesnt want another year.

Query- ESL- any clue about Ben Barba future? Also any standout Aussies / English over there left?
