Just looking at roughly the age of the players we are recruiting when they pull on our colours in 2018.
Greg Eastwood (not confirmed) - 31
Chris Maqueen - 30
Russell Packer (not confirmed) - 28
Josh Reynolds - 28
Ben Matalino - 28
MWZ - 25
Is it a concerted recruitment drive to do away with the youth/potential policy? Not saying these guys are old, however they would all be in the latter half of their career.
I think most Tigers fans will enjoy having a more hard nosed team that won’t be stood over.
Or is it a desperate short term gamble that can leave you in another hole in a few years?
There would be argument from the departing clubs supporters of these players that their best football could be behind them.
I must admit I have mixed feelings. I would just like a few younger players to balance things out.
