Liddle is already excellent only he needs the strengthening - presumably it is possible as also has to protect his previous injuries. But his thin frame always seems a worry in spite of it becoming more muscular.

They will only be back ups if they are not playing good enough to be selected.anf someone else is playing better.
Dont think any player signs on with type of incentive and if they were told that pretty sure they would have declined the offer.

i really dont care that they have resigned, WHAT really worries me that the 4-5 top class players we need seem to be no where in sight. the longer it goes without any positive signings the worse i feel. do we really have anyone looking to sign any real talent or are we just picking up older players and inexperienced players.

I always thought Robbie would be there next year, but Benji was a complete surprise. Wonder what the terms are.

I've no idea what the content of the contract negotiations was of course. But I've got enough faith in Pascoe/Cleary to assume that they haven't sold either Farah or Marshall a role if they have no intention of giving it to them.
Time will tell I guess

I don't think that any merged club should ever be wooden spooners - if they can still be wooden spooners they what hope is there

If we can actually get 2 top line forwards, a strike centre and a tall, fast winger to round out the team then I'm ok with Farah & Benji staying on.

Ergh.

Next thing they'll do is bring in Fulton out of retirement, bring Heighno in for a swan song, and release Cleary to the panthers to bring in Todd Payten as coach.

Not to mention Royce Simmons putting out the witches hats at training.

It feels like I've woken up in 2012 again.

2019 Joint Captain/Coaches??

Was thinking last week that it looked like they were our best option atm. Benji could play utility role. Hopefully Farah can help Liddle develop his game.
Is something else happening at club, behind the scenes, that are making them want to stay and genuinely help out. Though they’ve been selfish in the past, but there’s no doubting how much they love the club. IDK what to think anymore.
Got a good laugh from this

No point getting more forwards when we have to carry a spare hooker on the bench.
We handicap ourselves with this arrangement.

Can LIddle also play fullback where not such a workload and Moses play brilliantly at another posi?
