Parras Josh Cordoba, and Penriths Adam Woolnough have in the media, been linked to us.

Cordoba has officially signed with Hull so he's off to the northern hemisphere.

I remember the Woolnough one… what a dud... hope that one doesn't eventuate

Edit's are restricted to a time? Damn... any chance we can change that setting the powers that be?

I have to admit i wouldn't mind seeing this. Solid player form wise, big, strong, quick, still young. Could flourish under Sheens.

Payne - St George Illawarra
Galea - Manly or resigned depending on Fulton

Look to Skando to sign a $500 + match payments like he did this year for 2010…just in case...

We've been linked to George Rose, Brett Seymour and Brett Finch.

I think Rose resigning with Manly…. as for Seymour I hadn't heard that... just thought it was people on the last forum saying we should go after him...

Can't say I'd blame Lewis for looking elsewhere but I think he's of such a level as far as talent goes, that he'll never be settled at one club.

Collis needs to go. I know there are a few people who will defend him but he's been at the Tigers for years and never really kicked on and the last couple of years he has spent plenty of time on the sidelines.

I hope Collis does go. He's been given opportunity after opportunity to kick on and hasn't. If he couldn't do anything outside someone like Marshall then I fear for his future.

If we sign anyone else it's more than likely someone like Cooper Vuna.

Is that true about Lewis and the Sharks? How many halves to Cronulla need? Porter, Kelly, Lewis, Morris and Barrett.

With so many players coming off contract on reportedly decent money we should have some room to move. However like past years we have been slow to act while other clubs are getting their act together. Its looking like we are going to end with players that aren't the exact fit.
