What do we need?



  • 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.



  • To be frank a few NRL quality players backs and forwards ,there are quite a few pretenders in the side ATM.



  • We definitely need a winger, centre, and a good secondrower, plus a selection team that picks players on merit and performance.



  • A centre, a winger and a 2nd rower, one of whom needs to be able to kick goals. Ethan Lowe has kicked for the cowboys in the past. I am not sure whether he is stop gap or full time quality



  • A HOOKER and as mentioned another winger,centre,backrower plus a goal kicker.



  • someone to pay Robbie 600k next year and for him to sign with them, so that we actually have some funds to recruit players above the “fringe first grafer” standard

    We need another…. We need thread…

    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.



  • I would be recruiting players that add something we don’t have - consistency. We have brilliance but lack the type of players that can win a grinding hard game.



  • 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
    3. Centre

    For me our 2017 side should look like this

    Tedesco
    Nofoaluma
    SImona
    C-
    W-
    Moses
    Brooks
    Taylor
    Lawrence
    Aloia
    Woods
    H-Ballin
    Grant

    Ava
    Sue
    Lovett
    R4-



  • Centres and wingers. Our guys are fringe first graders, you could get away with one or two but not all four.



  • Maybe we can recruit some blokes off NRL rookie.



  • 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)

    That Lou Goodwin bloke is a winger and doesn’t look to bad….
