2015 Team
Definitely Losing - Anasta and Fulton
Should Lose - Buchanan, Galloway, Luani, Lulia, Moltzen, Paterson, Rowe,Thompson.

Should Buy (at minimum) - 1 x Quality Centre (Copely?), 1 x fast young Winger/Fullback and 1 x Quality Back rower.

Starting 2015 Team (25 man squad) should be:
Backs: Teddy, Simona, New Centre, Nofa, Richards, Moses, Brooks (Reserve Backs: Fine, Hitchcox, Lawrence, New Winger guy)

Forwards: Woods, Farah, Lodge, Akauola, New Backrower, Blair (Reserve Forwards: Sue, Sirro, Lovett, Brown)

Bench: Austen, Taupau, Gavet, Ava

Coaching Team: must have complete revamp - need a fresh start I'm afraid. Watching the game against the Dogs, Ch9 showed some vision in the Tigers box and what I saw was a bunch of blokes that don't even want to know each other!

You can't just kick someone out. You either need to sell them or replace them with someone who gets paid more than them.

For e.g. Lawrence cannot be kicked out because he gets paid so much that some average centre cannot be given more coin than him. We can't afford to have Lawrence sitting in the Reggies.

We haven't made any new signings for next year so the top 25 will be almost identical with others from state cup replacing Anasta, Fulton, BMM and koro.

With good reason. He is too slow. We need speed out wide.

Realities:

- Lawrence will be there

- We desperately need a (currently) quality back rower to give us oomph. Solely relying on impact from bench front rowers ran out of steam for us this year.

Big Keith will be there as well as he has 2 Yrs left on his contract. We need a couple of new Players, Good Players big time.

And that's exactly why Sironen should be coming off the bench and Sue starting

We need to have a clean out as we have some of the best juniors in our ranks and do not want to miss the window of opportunity to win a premiership in the next 5 years.

My team

Teddy
Nofo
Simona
A quality centre if not try Fine or Seve
Richards

Moses
Brooks

Blair
Akoula
A quality second rower or try Sue.

Woods
Farah
Lodge

Bench

Ava
Taupow
Sue
Gravet (if his head is screwed on)

Depth

Austin
Brown
Sirro - still can not understand the fuss with this kid. Maybe his famous name
Thompson if he doesn't leave us for more coin
Hitchcox
Lawrence to convert to a second rower in the pre season and state cup
Lovett
Under 20's hooker
Halatua

See you later

Galloway
Buchnan
Keith Luilia
Moltzen
Luina
Patterson

Need to review Coach and Support staff. Need to hire a coach to look after our young halves and develop their skills and kicking games.
Living the dream and praying for another premiership

Yes totally agree with that Happy - Sue certainly changes the dynamics. I think he would be starting by now if not for the injuries he's suffered. And hopefully Curtis comes on with a new roving game plan.

I still think we could do with a high quality established back rower though...

Seeing there is really no quality centers on the market, What about a Timona tahu?

He has experience, is on the outer at Newcastle.

Could sign him For minimum wage, on a short term 12-24month deal, will not bust the bank. But will give us some depth in our outside backs.

Will allow our juniors a bit more time to develop, and worst case, he ends up playing nsw cup.

Risk is minimal, if attitude is right, and sprinkles a mix of representative experience into our young team.

After all, he couldn't be any worse than Lawrence currently.

I mentioned this in another thread , but am getting the feeling seeing they have picked him this week to play NRL is that he might be getting a final swansong

He is 34 I think

I think your spot on there Happy, this will be his farewell game.
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

From zero tackle

Dual international Timana Tahu wants to keep playing in the NRL next season but said it will not be at the Newcastle Knights.

The 33-year-old former NSW and Australian representative said incoming mentor Rick Stone, who has been coaching him in Newcastle’s NSW Cup team this season, will not be offering him a new contract for 2015.

‘‘I’m still keen to play football but it definitely won’t be at this club. Rick Stone’s already talked about that,’’ Tahu said after training on Wednesday morning.

‘‘But I still feel like I can play a couple more years and I’ll finish on my time.”

Phil1986 has just cleared that up, don't know where his going to go cause I don't recall him playing even 1 game this year.
Maybe the Raiders will take him, who knows?
