I was thinking how good next year will be with a coach and players who we can respect. I've missed that. We had a crybaby, a captain who disrespected the club, a guy who dogs his teammates in any way he can (trying to pick up their women & blaming them for his poor on-field performances) and a coach who refused to confront the cancer.

We are on the way up.

Sheens could really come up with some great game plans at times. He has some monumental stuff-ups but when he got it right we were great.

With the teams that Bennett had at the Broncos Ink could have won 5 or 6 premierships.

1. Green
2. Bellamy
3. Robinson
4. Bennett
5. Flanagan
6. Arthur/ Stuart.. cant separate
8. Griffin/Cleary.. cant separate
10. McGregor
11. Barrett
12. Kearney/Brown.. can't separate
14-16. rookies

Cant believe how high Brown is being thought about. He COULD be a success next year but so far he's had nothing but failure imo in the NRL. Barrett and McGregor still almost rookies. Kearney last as everyone said.

Arthur, Flanagan and Stuart have similar personas and coaching style i think- but all with differring levels of success.

Green and Robinson are top of the class ATM.

Bennett and Bellamy, they're the Cameron Smith of coaches.
My Round 1 Team 2018

14. Matulino 15. McIllwrick 16. Sue 17. Aloiai
18. Marsters 19. Benji 20. Grant 21. K Naiqama
Next: Liddle, MCK, Felise, MWZ, Thompson, Rochow, Gamble

Nathan Brown at number 6? You need your head read!
Thats Happy for ya...always a 'controversial' element to his pieces...wait for the reply!
Shoulda been a DT journo, or talk back shock jock Hap
Brown was a hard one Ink

He has seen both ends of the spectrum , early on he had a team of superstars that should of won a premiership and didn't and it cost him his job

Then he had a side that no one expected anything from and has attracted many players despite winning two consecutive spoons

I think Brown would have learnt a lot from his first stint as an NRL coach and I think that Newcastle will challenge far more greatly for a Top 8 spot than the WT's will personally

Cleary had a fantastic record making the Top 8 4 of his first 5 seasons but has only done it once in the last 5 years

The WT's will need to recruit some much needed talent in 2018 to be a Top 8 chance in 2019

We are very likely to be spoon favourites in 2018 along with the Titans
I think you forgot a team called the NZ Warriors while you were away...
Maybe Geo , but we are only 1-2 injuries away from a truly disastrous campaign

We have no creative flair and I'll be shocked if we break 20 points more than 7-8 times this season

So our defence will need to win a lot of games , and if our past is a true indicator of the future that means a pretty dim season

I find it hard to place Robinson in the top end. For me he hasn't proven anything as a coach. He's always had a team packed with internationals and rep stars. He's never had adversity to overcome or teams to rebuild.

Potter took over the Tigers the same year Robinson went to the Roosters. I often wonder how their respective careers would have ended up had they of gone to opposite clubs.

It's going to be interesting when Bellamy doesn't have the big three around anymore. I still think he's a great coach, but it's will show how much his success was driven by those guys.

It speaks volumes that most in this thread rate him below 3 coaches who are untested at NRL level. The worst coach of the last 15 years. Totally incompetent.

You really are a negative nellie aren't you? I, like several others on here also have reservations about how well we will go next year, but you've taken the doom & gloom to a whole new level! I'd like to at least live in hope of a better season and I have full confidence in our coach, along with the injection of some new blood, to take us further up the ladder, but you seem to have no hope at all, even before a ball has been kicked! Thanks for coming back on here and trying to kill off what little hope and confidence we actually do have :?

Spud I'd love to live in hope of a massive season , yes we had an injection of new blood , but we unfortunately lost some very talented old blood as well

Tell me where you see our points coming from in 2018 and how we will stop teams scoring the points we will lose from 2017 ??

PS You don't have to believe me mate , have your own opinion and stick to it

I also hope I'm horribly wrong and you are 100 % right trust me

I just won't call what I don't believe and as a member and a fan ( well not a official member until Xmas Day ) and feel as a member I need to hold the club to full accountability at all times if I can

I'm not sure what the issue is with that ...... it is exactly what I would do if I was shareholder or what I do at work every day , I don't agree with what the executives above me are doing I question it ??

I cannot rate Bennett & Robinson up there. Have the benefit of completely stacked rosters and still under achieve. I also think that their will be a couple of the new coaches this year that will have very successful careers.
1. Bellamy
2. Green
3. Flanagan
4. Arthur
5. Bennett
6. Robinson
7. Cleary
8. Barrett
9. Pay
10. Brown
11. Stuart
12. Griffen
13. McGregor
14. Brennan
15. Siebold
16. Kearney

Nofoaluma would surely be in the top 5 wingers

And don't underestimate Suli, I think that he might have a breakout year and be a top 5 centre
