November 1st



  • I know its not even 2018 yet, but its only 3 weeks till we can “officially” start negotiating with players for 2019. This creates a few questions.

    What players, if any, should we target?

    Which off contract players should be offered new deals?

    How much will we have to spend?

    Should we expect any signings before round 1?



  • A decent backrower and look at how the outside backs go in 2018

    Hard to say, too many variables - for example, how will Lolohea go in the 1, will McQueen bounce back, and how will youngsters like Suli and Masters go in their second year etc.

    What…?



  • Was waiting for Geo’s witty retort. Even thought about prefacing it in the OP.



  • Should be targeting fullbacks and any good young back rowers IMO.



  • Can see maybe one more signing before round one.
    Need to target backrow and back-up fullback

    Out of the off contract list -
    JJ Felise, Tim Grant, Benji Marshall, Esan Marsters, Kevin Naiqama, Sauaso Sue, Malakai Watene-Zelezniak

    Esan Marsters would be top priority



  • Latrell Mitchell #1 priority for 2019 even if it make Nick dig a bit deeper into his fog pocket.



  • Is Nathan Cleary off contract at the end of 2018 or end of 2019?



  • @:

    '19



  • Latrell Mitchell definately to put more pressure on Roosters Sombrero



  • Some of the bigger names we could have a crack at in the second row include Buhrer, Cordner, Crichton, Lowe, Mannering and Papalii. Don’t think we’ll have a chance for any of them but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have a go for one of them.



  • Crichton is at Easts if Souths don’t throw the kitchen sink at him, so forget him.

    Cordner would be good, Lowe would be handy as a goal kicking second rower but he’s a QLD’er so he won’t want to leave. Buhrer would be good for utility value.

    Grant has taken up an option for 2018.
    Naigama, Benji, Sue, Marsters and MWZ are all signed for 2018 as far as I know.
    That leaves only JJ.
