After watching our performances very closely lately, I’ve been trying to figure out the type of player we need to complete our team.
Imo we lack a big intimidating forward, who looks to offload and creates momentum (just like that Nelson bloke from storm)
Also a winger, that takes the ball up well and has good defensive reads who’s good in the air.
Would love to hear the other forum members opinion.
I think JAC over Rankin would be the place to start. We don’t need a huge change in personnel. It’s the coach that needs to change.
Can not agree mate …if Taylor gets punted at seasons end no big deal ,but there are some very average players in this team ,there has to be at least 4 to 5 quality players brought in to be competitive to be frank.
Talking players we need in priority order
1. Left winger
2. Back Rower - Although this may be Aloia/lovett in a year I’m not sure but still room on the bench
For me our 2017 side should look like this
ET needs to play in the 13 and not play any hooker.
We need to select one hooker to play 80 minutes (Cherro, Liddle or Farah).
Two props and two second rowers on the bench (Ava, Felise, Lovett, MCK)
Halatau needs to retire legend but past it.
In terms of next year we need:
A strong winger (Brenko Lee, Curtis Rona, David Mead).
Backrower with some size (Ethan Lowe, Asofa Solomon, Shaun Lane)
Payout and release Farah & Ballin and bring back De Gois on a 1 year contract until Liddle is ready.
Bring back some low cost former Tigers (James Gavet, Nathan Brown)
