I will wait and see who the two players are before making my decision. If it was Tapau/JWH and say Hayne, I would say Yes.

no.
I think there is more improvement in the teams who finished below us in 2018.
cant see any team dropping out of the top 8 from 2018,either.
hope springs eternal,of course.

I agree, if the last two are quality then we're are a chance.

Really. I can see improvement in the knights if they get Klemmer.

But Manly I see nothing. Titans will do better but not too different. Cowboys will improve a little but they are loosing a lot of players, Eels well a slight roster boost but they have big issues and the Bulldogs were looking a little better till Klemmer wanted to leave.

I am optimistic. McGuire is going to take a little bit of time to settle into the role. But we have a fairly good spine Farah, Brooks, Reynolds... ok 3/4 ain't bad.

Our biggest issue is go forward. Swapping Sue for Ryan Matherson and loosing the depth of Grant, well I think we are weaker up front.

Man that guy is a unit. I hope that we keep him in our side.
We need Quality more then Quantity up front. Hope he lives up to the hype.

Not if we continue this hooker on the bench nonsense.
Either go with Robbie or Liddle for 80 mins.
Another prop in the rotation will do us wonders.

Theres a ton of improvement in the current crop of players.

We could of / Should have easily won at least 4 more games on 2018.

There is a matrurity / confidence and displine issue at our club that impacts our ability to have a higher win %.

I think we saw a change in 2018 that we have never before seen. A grind.

If that continues to grow, along with a few choice recruits.... We could be a more serious team in 2020/21

2019 = No

We are probably two players away from being a serious unit

So will reserve my judgement until we see where our recruitment ends up and the side we put out Rd 1

With our current side with no upgrades somewhere from 7th-11th

I think Maguire will be given the clearance to do whatever is necessary to make the eight. I have a feeling a couple of players will be moved on for others.

He should be able to attract decent talent and has cap space. Anything less than the 8 is a failure next year.

Agree with you and the general sentiment.

We are mostly pragmatic in acklowlwging that we have a squad that has potential and mostly good attitudes, We are a mid teir team which is an improvement in all honesty.

Club board and Management have been very good in allowing the Prev coach to do what he saw fit, With Maguire I think he will be better placed to instill confidence in all stakeholders.

Still a few years away from 9-11th to be a constant 5th to 8th

I dont see the WTs being in the same category of the Storm, Roosters

We can however be a Sharks, rabbits, broncos, Cows in a few years
