How would you form our team?

Ok you have 4 ideas to pick from:

5 Good players, with the other 12 Mediocre at best.

3 good, 6 above average, the other 8 mediocre.

13 Above average players. Everyone else Reserve grade.

The big 17.


Curious. As I noticed that Every team seems to do it differently.
Easts seem to pick 5 top players, Then fill themselves with people who they can pay cheaply or fringe graders.
Melbourne kept the big 4, then almost any Fringe grader with talent.
Cronulla seem to copy Easts, picking players at the back end of their careers.

We really went with the big 17. I don’t think other then Brooks, that we had anyone who would be a ‘star’ in another team.
Would we have been better off splurging on two great front rowers instead of the 3-4 good ones we got?

This thread is a off season special.

Roosters have

Tedesco
Mitchell
Cordner
Cronk
Keary
JWH
Friend
Manu
Napa
Taukihahau
Ferguson

All these blokes represent their state and or country

Five players ……

Broncos certainly dont fit any of those options

17 good players for me.

Out of those options I’d take #2 - 3 good, 6 above average, 8 mediocre.

What’s the big 17?

You play with the hand you’re dealt. We won’t be a “5 big players” anytime soon.

Give the Roosters their due, their not afraid to pad their squad (not their 17) with some ISP & potential. You can blow an entire season that way with some injuries.
