If I was in charge I would.........

Post by teddy23 » Wed 02 May, 2018 8:38 pm

Alright fellow forumers, it's time for a bit of fantasy!

With all the money we have and spots to fill - if you were in charge of recruitment who would you bring in?

If I was in charge of recruitment

You base your squad on the pack, it's so crucial......

I'd go try to get Marty and Shannon Boyd

While signing on Jai Field or Sean Meaney type fullback - these kids would be superb behind a good strong pack (ala Dufty) and give them good go forward

If not I'd go get Val Holmes and have faith in the current pack

But by going with the cheap option at fullback you're able to bring in a Nathan Cleary also


A team like

1. Sean Meaney/ Jai Field
2. David Nofa
3. Esan Marsters
4. Mahe Fonua
5. Corey Thomspon
6. Luke Brooks
7. Nathan Cleary
8. Russell Packer
9. Jacob Liddle
10. Shannon Boyd
11. Chris Lawrence
12. Marty Taupau
13. Elijah Taylor

14. Josh Reynolds
15. Alex Twal
16. Ben Matalino
17. Matt Esiuenhuth

With depth like Rochow, Alolai and Sue
That team could win a premiership

Assuming we have around 1.4-5 mil to spend after Milne and Suli both getting the sack

Subside 800k of cap money with TPA's valuing to 200k - for a marquee player like Nathan Cleary for 2019

By 2019 Tui's contract will be coming to an end - and I wouldn't renew it, anyone knows how much he is signed for 300-400k?

With around 900-1 mil remaining

Marty would value at around 500-600

Shannon Boyd would value the same 500-600k

By then Sue and Tim Grant will be gone I assume so that frees up cash to sign some young players - Jai Field and Sean Meaney included

Marty is on 750K on his new contract at Manly and when he left here it was because JT could not see the value in him or could not fine the cash for him at 650K

I would like Sheens back. Not as a Coach, but just to hang around, give maybe 20 minutes of advice and come up with the crazy plays he did in 2010 and earlier. Some of the plays he thought up were just incredible. Literally we should hire him to do 1 hour a week of just one single play, then go away... i.e. "ok it's 60 minutes in and you have everyone watching our big winger... winger goes inside, center goes outside... Try defense follows the center not the winger. Bye till next time! "

How is this any different to the signing rumours thread? There’s more than enough fantasy team lists in there.

If I was in charge I would give voting rights to members , continue strengthening our financial position and try and come up with a logical decision in regards to our home ground situation

I think these are still the areas that trip the club up

You can check out Nick Meaney on the Knight website.
He's a young fullback.
