Bus definitely isn't full. We still need to lock away another second-rower and possibly a prop or winger.

Off the Bulldogs forum but someone posted that BMoz looked like heading to the WTs but blew it when he asked for 4 years but we supposedly offered only 2. 2 years too many for my liking.
Whaaa? While I wouldn't sign him for 4 years, 2 years with Brett Morris would be awesome.

NSW winger has been one of the few shining lights in under-performing teams.
He still has speed, commitment and is an excellent defender.
He is better than every back we have.
Dayum!
Yeah that's a bit of a shame, if true. If we don't get Rona, we still need to find a speedy winger, imo. The two intercepts by Nofo on Sunday not resulting in tries highlights our desperate need for some speed on the flanks.
The second intercept lead to Kev's try, there are not too many players that would not get run down by Tom T.
I reckon he had Trbojevic covered to be honest, it was Cherry-Evans across on the angle that got him. Looked like Trbojevic eased up a bit but I'd have backed Nofo to get the big dive in by the corner.

Fair enough, but my point is that if someone like JAC took that intercept it would've been shut the gate! We need a winger that no one will catch once they are off. Just one will do, I'm not greedy :mrgreen:

Paasi and Vete still havnt been signed.Why arnt we making a play? still dont like grant and sue on our bench next year honestly.
I think an option has been exercised with Paasi and he's staying at the Titans. There was quite a bit of talk a while ago that Vete had agreed to stay at the Warriors too. Pat Kaufusi to Melbourne sounds likely too (to join Felise there). Tagataese has signed with Manly. That about does it for off contract forwards.

Reynolds or Benji to the centers in second half. 3 strong ball players and we will see some results.

but then the dilemma of who to take out of the centres .. Suli ? Masters ? is that what you are thinking ?

Whichever way we look at it we will have a lot of ball players next year. Marshall, Reynolds, Lolohea,Brooks and throw Nofo in there

2018 looks good

Aron Woods is running behind the bus do we put the foot down and leave him behind or do we wait and see what unfolds at the bulldogs.

What happens then if the other winger takes the intercept?

We reverse and run him over...he had 6+ months to make his mind up and ummmm strung the club, fans and sponsors along...with every excuse under the sun why he is not signing...then dumps us!...karma is now hitting him square in the face and the club should not even consider throwing him a lifeline...he had an opportunity to become a WT legend and chose to shun all of us!.

Benji for 14 IMO. He does utility work at the Broncos now, he's probably not expecting to be Tigers "World Beater" He'll just enjoy being back in Tigers colours
