The Bus is FULL

Unread post by Love the WestsTigers » Mon 14 Aug, 2017 10:35 am

Personally, i think the bus is full

The only exception would be Rona or equal quality player.

I think we have recruited well, have enough quality depth and its a highly handsome roster for 2018 and beyond.

Lets invest money in other things, like Player facilities etc..

We're still short a player or two on the roster I think.

Its definitely not full.

Apart from another back (Rona), we need a decent 2nd rower to complement the forward pack. maybe another seasoned prop.

We are on the right track though.

Josh Jackson would be handy. If what Jimmy Smith said has any legs I think the Dogs would let go anyone at the moment to be cap compliant next year. Seems as though they're getting desperate and their calls to get cap concessions or get it raised are falling on deaf ears, especially with Greenberg dogging Dib's lunch (excuse the pun.)

By my rough estimates we money and spots left in the Top30. Milky has a list somewhere

A few more young signings like McIntyre and Gibbs to fill out the development positions would be welcome.

Cronulla are not happy after losing their NSW U18s halfback to Manly. Curtis Scott was a big loss.

With an offseason training for the position i think Marsters could move to the 2nd row next year. Solid defender, runs good lines, good hands.

If Hayne gets shown the door today and we don't end up with Rona would you consider signing Hayne as a winger?

In a word, no.

It's taken a long time to move on the strong personalities in the club which have been detrimental to our development. Hayne's a bigger tosser than all of them put together.

No to Hayne, and I would definitely offer Idris a low-ball contract if the medicos clear him.

No. His ego wouldn't fit through the bus doors.

Sabre, I suggest you read the following, which I posted on another thread a few days ago.

https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nrl-pr ... 5a737faaac

After reading this critique, how could you consider signing this self-opinionated trouble-maker to our Club, which is now on the right track!
