The having to have 30 players by June 30 is interesting. Why would a club let a player go unless they have another player ready to sign? We’re going to have to promote from within or sign from the reserve grade comp.

Or grab a dissatisfied player who his club is prepared to release or, maybe, swap?

But if we swap a player we still need to find another 1.

I would suggest that Wests Tigers have been holding out for a surprise signing (or two) before June 30.

Or seeing if anyone steps up from the lower grades.

If upgrading internally, Garner is a name worth mentioning.
Externally, keep pushing for Barba. If only to make another team pay more.
Another reserve grade half to replace Drinky perhaps, wouldn't hurt the depth, and a specialist centre or two of reserve grade quality or better.

If not top level recruits, (see Sheer64's comment, good ones there) front load a couple of contracts, (maybe Packer, ET, Mats) and go hard for 2019.

Best to keep the development guys as development if we can, there is a discount when they hit first grade if they have been development players for 2 years, so that would be very handy come 2020 should be ready and hitting their straps around then.

Personally I think we'll promote from within or sign talent from other state cup teams to fill the remaining spots.
The star of the team is the team.
