Its going to be a tough month ahead, BUT we will start to get some size back in the forwards not to mention the backs from injury and can finish the season on a high note, lets hang in

I dunno, I watched back-to-back 50- and 56-0 losses in 2004, plus two terrible losses to Parra: 44-6 in 2008 and 66-12 in 2001 at Leichhardt. In fact 2001 also had the 64-0 record loss to Melbourne.

Recruitment is our biggest problem.

We don't have a Mark Hughes, Peter Mulhollond, Noel Cleal or Peter O'Sullivan.

So what have we done this year
Resigned Liam Fulton....he wouldn't get a start in any of the top 8 packs.
We got rid of Miller and signed Eddie Paea.
We signed Richards...He wouldn't get a start anywhere else.
We resigned Moltzen...Why?
We signed Anasta and all the other players no one else wanted this year.

Recruitment is diabolical...............That is the very first person who needs to be made to answer.

Ohh and I didn't even mention Blair.

The people in recruitment was sheens. The recruitment manager doesn't pick the first graders to go after he gets the juniors in and in that we have done awesome. The problem has been which nrl players we sign and let go and that is the job of the first grade coach and the CEO

All the talentless boys club from Royce, Georgy boy, Skando, Leeds can all take a long walk off a short pier.

Strap a few of the pea heart first graders to them to weight them down

Potter needs to clear the coaching staff out and bring in his own team. It's also time to send a strong message and get rid of some of the players who aren't putting in. Our young guys can't do any worse

I agree, this is the time to give potter more power and control. Show him that he has everyone's support and don't let him doubt himself. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Not so sure about that, I think its generally the case, but I heard an interview with Pat Richards a couple weeks ago, he was asked who at the club initiated his return.
Warren McDonnell was his reply.

Whoever made th decision to sign Blair needs to be go.

Not only did we pay masssive overs, we ended up paying some of gibbs salary also to accomodate Blair.

Blair cost us over 700 000 last season. No one should survive that level of stuff up.

Yep. My thoughts exactly. There's no doubt that Potter will review the set up at some point. especially from the point of view of specialist coaches. Players will come and go as always. The big question being does the club shop around certain players under contract. It's going to be an interesting time moving forward.
