Why don't we all take a bex, have a good lie down and wait and see what Ivan comes up with.

With us zero chance of signing a top notch player at the height of their game we should be looking at players who are road blocked at the good clubs, or players who are In the top 17 at good clubs who are on average money because of salary cap constraints. We need some big fast and competitive players ...both forwards and backs.

I know easier said than done, but their must be some real quality at clubs like Penrith,Sharks, Storm,Chooks and Dragons caught in a road block. A bloke like Joe Stimson at the Storm is one who comes to mind. Okay they might be under contract, but contracts can be broken

Hoffman retires at the end of the year though and Stimson is probably a fair chance of partnering Kaufusi in the 2nd row at Melbourne next year.

Like when we got Austin and Taupau...
Good thinking.

People keep telling me we are 2-3 signings away from a genuine Top 8 side..
For sure, if you remove the hyphen between the 2 and the 3.

We just dont even seem to be in the race if you listen to the media in regard to the Clearys. Broncos and Roosters both going to offer whatever it takes, and you cant discount Gould/Panthers.
We dont even get a mention.

Which is the disheartening part. Might well be looking for a new coach yet again.

My thoughts are a good look at the recent NSW Residents v QLD residents. We have Garner locked in but must be more in both sides that need a look at. Knights thought JJ Felise and souths thought Sironen. Can anyone post both sides so we can all decide what may need picking or not. Could be a wealth of joy in both of those teams.
I will say to fellow posters, we have dropped the gun for last two weeks but we have been more then anything anyone has expected. I won't knife my team on two pour efforts. Two last 20 min pour efforts. Will get back in the game.

Not sure what marquee players we’re supposed to be expecting to fall out of the sky to pounce on. Mbye will be our most notable recruit, and he’s already here. Which is kinda why I was hoping he would come next year. Because if we continue to drop down the ladder as the year comes to an end, at least we have something to look forward to, something that might lift us. Now if we fall while he’s in the team, he’s just another player. But no, everyone wanted him this year, then will complain how we have no notable signings and nothing to look forward to in 2019.

Considering Ivan will still be contracted to us it sort of is dissmissive of our position.

Contracts are not worth the paper they are written on, you know that. If he’s going to leave, it’s completely pointless keeping him on in 2020. Better off letting him go and getting a replacement in ASAP. Fwiw, Cleary left the Warriors a year early too.
