Watching some of the names we have spoken about these guys would be realistic targets who could improve the side marginally:

Lowe
Gela-Mosby
Kelly
Hetherington
Latu
Peachey (more valuable in a team that is physically dominant)

To improve the side drastically we would need to go all out for:

Marty
TPJ
Matterson
Tapine
Rapana
Munster
NAS

Most of this second list are free to negotiate in Nov (source zero tackle) and if we are serious we need at least 2 and probably 3 of this calibre.

I know it's a pipe dream at this stage, but the club has to find a way to get it done.
Interesting reasoning on Peachey there OMT. Personally, just love the guy as a footballer and would happily take him, just see him trapped in a body that doesn't allow him to show his absolute abilities.

Munster and Tapine would be my first picks off your second list if only allowed two.
With Tapine and Marty peachy would be priceless. Hitting it up after the huth and ET I don't think he'd be as effective.

Balance of our pack is too heavily skewed towards clever workers. Rowdy is a threat near the line, but no one else comes to mind as an impact player.

Imagine Peachey at penriffff with 5 Merrins instead of Kikau and RCG and I think he could have less opportunities against a retreating or indecisive defense.
Can I say I agree with you totally, that Tapine, Taupau and Peachey signing with us for 2019 would be priceless. Literally - I cannot offer you a price to describe how long the odds would be on such a thing ever happening.
Haha that's true
Luckily dreams are free

I’m off here for 3 weeks, when I come back I want to see 3 or 4 top line signings.
No hacks/plodders.
This will be an interesting little experiment. My money is on nothing changing in 3 to 4 weeks.

Hope we are wrong.
Well we might get another Prime Minister while you’re away but Wests Tigers definitely won’t have signed anyone of note.

Off to Perth for us. Plenty of TPA's and paper bags over there. And we would have our very own stadium. And the NRL would give us a heap of cash.

Way to go.
It will be so easy to go to the games as well - just take your annual holidays.

What the Roosters do is sign the best 16-18 year olds on money other clubs can’t afford outside the salary cap. Bring these players through each year ie: Mitchell, Manu, Radley.
They then top up marquee signings Keary, Tedesco, Cronk with third parties 200k + each. Their last trick is to have no morals and sign people with atrocities. Ferguson, Tetevano on the cheap.

It’s the Golden State Warriors Warriors of the NRL the rest of the players take a small haircut to play on a winning squad.

They and their families are also looked after off the field which no team can match in the corporate world.

They are a blight on the game and have no juniors alll their best players are from other clubs.
Well said.
That's the best and most accurate description of the rorters i have seen

I come from newcastle and won't mention the name but one of my friends son's had offers from rorters n parra that the knights couldn't even get near

He was told by his manager that if he accepts the rorters offer he would be signing the biggest contract that had ever been signed by a 16yo in NRL history

He chose to stay at the knights

It is a joke how they have no juniors but loads of money and therefore never spoken about as a target for relocation

Relocate another club and you lose supporters to other codes

Relocate rorters and lose nothing

Shame the NRL don't see it that way or don't care
This is why there should be a draft of non NRL players - similar to NFL - it would stop teams like the rorters paying huge amounts to 16 yr olds

That would be nice but I'd say the rorters would have enough power to stop that from happening

We may have 29 layers by xmas but 25 that are crap and will lead to more disappointment next year we need 5 good players for next year.
Must have given you some joy on this years performance ..... :crazy
There were some good moments you get your hopes up and then we crumble like always no different this year.

I don't get some people's mentality

Many people are talking halves when it wouldn't matter if Lockyer and Thurston were in their primes behind our pack

Think good ,quality forwards , simple
The trouble with your thinking is it’s common sense, the problem here on the forum it’s not common enough.
I just read that post and it is spot on.

Why are people fixated on this Brian Kelly.

We dont need him and he will make zero impact to our over all performance.
Its an opinion!
