Im here nor there about it They are players that people love to blame when things dont go well so I expect when we lose there will be more of the same.
Regardless just waiting to see where these other signings are and more importantly who they are.

Any wonder this club NEVER has any success... never wants to move forward , just wants to live in the yesterday :deadhorse:
We need Farah. If you have a better idea I'd love to hear it.
Segeyaro would be a good start. Oh well, looks like Brooksy will have another year of monumental frustration and being over ruled on field by two ball hogs. Bring in a 9th to 16th place again. Can't wait.

So the same spine next year
The new outside backs and backrow recruits better posses speed and skill.... I can't see this as an improvement despite the so called figures

I would rather he retired to be honest but if it means he plays ISP next season i can live with it.Hopefully the contract reflects his position as no 2 hooker
Don't think so - he would expect to play 19 games to reach 300 unfortunately.
Why unfortunately?
If he is good enough he should play 300 games.

Comments like your's are totally inappropriate
Get you are a Farah Fanboy but.......

Too old, too slow ..... comments like yours try to suppress people from having an opinion.

It is my opinion - if you don't agree with it that is ok, plenty of people don't agree with it, that is ok as well.

IT is however not inappropriate.

Seems like that if we dont sign Benji or Farah we get the Munsters and Clearys yeah.

Dont think its that simple guys.

Reality is a biter pill.
Exactly. These guys aren't stopping us signing the top line players or young players that might become top line players.

And if they would have backed Farah up in that titans game it may have been 6 from 8. Other hookers have a worse record than Farah's for same part of the year but no knives out for them that I know of. Farah and Marshall together have never being defeated by Canberra, what a record considering the thumpings we usually get from them. Marshall may not be consistent but he was not supposed to be playing every week - not his fault. And if we got into finals that we could have it would have been on the back of having a no. 6 on peanut salary. Due to injuries they were a necessity and it must be considered the same position next year - they can't be blamed for our predicament and we are luck to have them. Blame Russell and other for dragging Jacob into first grade too early or the Club for not having a decent strong guy before giving Farah the boot.
What are you smokin'? What are you talking about?

I am sure Cleary reads the Forum and in particular my posts before he makes his team selections.

In your efforts to talk Farah up you will clutch at anything you can.

5 from 8 wins with Farah this year

12 from 20 with Benji.

We make finals if they played more games.

We will be slightly stronger for having them next year. However we need to make the club more attractive so that we can attract better players. We need younger players to emerge. At the moment those things are not really happening.

Anyway, it will be an easy reason for fans to moan next season when we lose games.
Despite all those years of missing the 8 with them.
Do the numbers and you might be surprised.

Benji played how many games in seasons 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 for how many wins?

Whats Benji and Farahs win percentage together?

I would be interested to know thats all.
Nah. Not gonna do that. If you know the stat just tell me.
2004: Played 1 game together
Benji - 4 wins from 7 games - 57%
Farah - 2 wins from 3 games - 66%

2006: Played 9 games together
Benji - 6 wins from 11 games - 55%
Farah - 9 wins from 20 games - 45%

2007: Played 13 games together
Benji - 5 wins from 13 games - 38%
Farah - 11 wins from 24 games - 46%

2008: Played 15 games together
Benji - 9 wins from 18 games - 50%
Farah - 8 wins from 17 games - 47%

2009: Played 20 games together
Benji - 12 wins from 23 games - 52%
Farah - 12 wins from 21 games - 57%

As others have mentioned the winner here is Jacob Liddle and the loser could be Brooks.
For the team it would be best if Jacob is seen as an 80min 9 for 2019 and Robbie is there as backup. In case Liddle can’t play 80 or is injured.
I’m not expecting Liddle to play 80 from R1 . Hopefully he can build his minutes over the first 5 rounds, then kicks on as an 80 min player
Ivan "Billy Beane from Moneyball" Cleary!

I agree BBF. Definitely Russell’s fault that Liddle was selected too early.

Not finals footy figures if you ask me...but this is just simplifying things and theres way too many other factors to take into consideration to draw any real conclusions

Assuming the starting spine next year is Farah; Brooks; J Rey: Mbye, then it is a new-ish spine.

That spine only played 0.5 game against the Gold Coast this year.

Three quarters of that spine played in our last 7 matches for 5 wins and 2 losses.

I don't see the spine as our problem (assuming they stay fit). We need to beef up the forwards and outside backs.

Just as Farah is famous for sneaking over for the record number of tries for a hooker let him also sneak over the line for 300 FG games even if only part time casual. It could be part of a handshake deal with Ivan that can't be written on paper.

I agree, he asked for the stats though so I provided them.

From 2007-2009 Farah played out of his skin, and put in some pretty big performances in a team that failed to make the finals.

They are squad replacements for the below average Mcllwrick and Godinet type players

Nothing more nothing less.

People are sooking way too much.

Those are the players that Robbie and Benji are replacing. I don't see the issue.

Ah great. Another season with a hooker on the bench.
No wonder we fall short in the forwards. They carry too much of the load when we carry a spare hooker on the bench.

Not ideal to be running all year long with that strategy. I could cop the first month and then have Farah for injury coverage after that. But running two hookers all year long? Yeah no thanks, not with our pack.

Its a no brainer when you look at it as replacements for McIlwrick and Godinet. As long as it didnt break the bank, its a great move.
