Lets just say this.

We have had no 5/8
We have had no Fullback
We have had no Hooker

We have like 27 out of what should be a 30 man squad
We have something like 1.2 Million unused salary cap

Good defence will only get you so far. Fill the squad!!!!
And we’ve won 6 games. Not bad going.

Thats good you are happy with that. Each to their own. I see us losing games as a direct result of what ive listed.
I'll concede 5/8 for the last six weeks and hooker. I think Thompson has been fine at fullback. Not a Slater or Teddy but solid and tough.

I agree we should fill the squad, but no point filling the squad with anybodies/nobodies. The players we want will also want to come here.

BUT WHATS the use of having 1.2 million in the cap if we are struggling in 3 or 4 areas, spent the money and get some players in.
Name some players that you want to spend that 1.2 Million on, that are available next week!!!!
What he said...

Do we just want to fill spots cause we can or do we want to strengthen the roster with the right players..
I should have been a bit clearer in saying Star players that are available.

Thompson is a classy winger, one of the best in the comp. At fullback we just dont have the halves to cover his lack of ball playing ability.
Its an opinion!

Last night we played a top 4 side at their home ground.

We did well keeping them to 2 tries.

We all have to appreciate our team has punched well above it's weight this year so we should enjoy each win or close loss and hope we attract some big names for 2019.

Benji is back to his old self and can't wait until Reynolds is back. Rochow has to go back to ISP.

Hi Patriot - yes I agree. But somehow I think that the current situation is the result of IC waiting to see who was up to scratch. It is now obvious where the holes are so let's see what the club comes up with.

I'm with you there, Cleary has been putting them to the test. I'm saying what I'm saying now as I know it's time.

Things change now

When the players don't follow the game plan for 65 minutes , why do WT Forum members blame the coach ??

The coach has always been an easy target. It’s a forum staple.
