I like this backline but Fonua may also be a good option. I suppose if we don't get Milne or Rona Fonua takes one of those spots.

No one wants to come unless you offer them a contract.
Tedesco was offered a contract and he still didn't stay... oh well.

I don't get it? You expect or desire a torrent of top-quality players battering our door down? Please show me the entryway to this fantasy land.

I think Packer and Reynolds are 2 of the most quality signings any club has made for next season. They'll take us a long way imo.

I would add Mautilino to that list. He is a quality prop that plenty of teams have wanted to sign for years. Watch him go when he reaches match fitness over the next month or so.

I'm more excited about Matulino than I am about Packer. I can't wait to see Reynolds and Lolohea sniffing around his offloads in the middle of the park.

Jumped in without understanding the post again, eh?
Did I say that I thought rhat we would get that sort of top quality players coming here, ?
No .
I just said that they aren't knocking us over in the rush to move here. Which is exactlywhat I'd expect., no fantasy just a fact that I hope will one day change.
For the overs that we've been throwing around , it doesn't surprise me that few of the ones that we've signed, would grab the dollars very quickly, as we're paying well. Some are well worth it, but some maybe not. Only time will tell,

I am not understanding your 'overs' argument. From the numbers I have seen bandied around, they are commensurate with the players standings in the game I reckon. Ivan is moneyballing this recruitment drive and I don't believe significant monies have gone to anybody in particular.

I'm more excited about Matulino too (though I still think Packer is a good signing). The biggest question mark out of our recruits is probably over Lolohea at FB; hopefully he kills it.
Year of last finals appearance:
2018 - Roosters, Storm, Rabbitohs, Sharks, Panthers, Broncos, Dragons, Warriors
2017 - Eels, Sea Eagles, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers

I think that some of the signings are better than the ones that we have at the moment,but we are so quick to get in a lather whenever someone actually comes here. I'd rather not get all in a knot until we've seen them play a few games for us before I start wetting my daks about them, we have short memories,
It's taken nearly three years for a lot to see the fact that our super halves weren't capable of playing well together. And should not have been put into first grade.
That's not hindside either . as I've had that opinion for most of the time that they were left
To run the team.
I've had plenty thrown at me over the last few years because of my opinion of them. , it's strange seeing so many people now on the bandwagon about them , particularly Moses.
If these guys or at least most of them, work out, that's good
We still need at least one gamebreaker if we want to play Semis IMO.

That's fine if you think that we haven't,, I think that we have. We'll know in about 18 months.

No you won't, because you'll never actually know what any of them are on.
