Cody Walker has absolutely destroyed them.

No issue if Garner leaves. Don’t mind the bloke when he has a go, can run a good line and can put on a shot when he uses his shoulder, but like so many in the current squad, he’s inconsistent and I’ve got no doubt we’ve got our eye on other players if Garner goes. I’m hoping we’re still in the frame for Hetherington, he adds some much needed aggression to our pack.

We better have someone locked up before releasing Garner.

Exactly the same conditions as Da Storms. No release until replacement received…

Unless we’ve told him he’s free to explore his options.

Why are people talking about singing a halve i thought we had 6/7 who could play in that position hence why we are letting Benji go.
So as far as I am concerned that’s one of the last positions we need to fill,after all it’s about balancing our squad isn’t it

We have many 6/7 that can play in that position - how many of them are worth a bean.

It’s like using public transport instead of buying a Ferrari. Think I’ll take the Ferrari myself.

Enjoy the public transport Goanna57.

Nothing wrong with public transport Russell it’s a lot cheaper and quite reliable,besides it keeps me employed.Remember it’s all about the balance of the squad so we don’t need another halve got any number can play there

I understand - but none of them play it well enough that is why we need a play maker.

Russell I agree but what path do we go down ,wait for a proven experience player or the he’s got lots of potential but as yet not prove

Burton, Clifford and Drinkwater are all off contract at the end of 2021 - we have to start thinking of a solution by November 1 or they will all be gone. There will be others off contract at that time as well Flanagan, Williams, Dearden, Johnson, Fogarty etc.

However if we are not in there on November 1 - forget it.

Fogarty is a very good half and goal kicker.

Just re-signed with titans

That’s why we have to be knocking on the door on November 1.

Soon as it hits midnight November 1st we gotta start ringing players. The sooner the better

I’ll tip you…no Club waits to that stupid date…

Can’t officially offer them anything until then. Until that date everything is just talk

And the good Clubs have all the talking done well before official offers are made…

Are we one of the good clubs?

Russ,I think that with Benji gone and JREY still with us next year maybe Madge has identified that Brooks plays better and is more comfortable with JR in the halves with him…
They both combined have a better win rate than LB and Benji this year…
Its just a thought because maybe JR could be a good player for us next year with more responsibility now Benji wont be there and Madges coaching could make the pair a good halves combination…I know there are many on here that dont like JR as a player but maybe next year could be a good year for him and us…who really knows what Madge has up his sleeve…

If Madge thought Reynolds was a better match for Brooks wouldn’t he have played Reynolds this year instead of Marshall?

I think that Madge played Marshall because of his attacking style and being a 6/7 could change the attack we had…Dont forget that Madge dropped Benji for his defense deficiencies and he put JR in which were some of the games we did win when Benji was on the bench…

I dont know what Madge has in his plans for next year and JR could be on the bench or out of the squad…I just dont think Madge wants to keep chopping and changing the combinations to much eg Mbye centre,fullback.or 5/8…I think Madge is looking for a stable competant halves combination next year ,who that will be anybody knows…

I think he played Benji there because he’s a better player. I don’t see Reynolds in Madge’s plans at all.

How is sailors defence. Don’t recall seeing him play

About as good as any other rookie half, not very good 😂

Then Reynolds/Walters are better, at least they can tackle. We need players who can tackle.

Until we stop leaking 30 points a game, we’ll never go anywhere.

He is better than Reynolds and Walters.
Walters will miss a chunk of the season recovering from his ACL at best he is a reserve anyway.

That’s a ridiculous statement. He’s played 3 games off the interchange bench at an ordinary team and missed about half the tackles he’s attempted.

There is potential sure, but he ain’t better than what we have.

So many fans seem to only look at the attack.

How is it ridiculous so many fans have blinkers on.

I analyze players on and off the ball, for defense & attack structures outside of the play efforts - always have.

Walters misses and falls off a heap of tackles its why he didn’t last at hooker. Because he couldn’t hold his man. The only thing he offers was spark in attack

Reynolds hits players high as part of his aggressive defense style and gets brushed off with ease, he also rushes up and gets beat every game. Again everyone talks about his energy but that also is in attack.

Sailor hits around the waste, he does arm grab but most kids do these days. His attack is better than the other 1.

Defense is at a similar level for all 3. Sailor age, lack of experience, body growth and skill level is however better value. His defense in juniors was fine. He needs time to adapt to the nrl.

I’m comparing apples with apples, thats not ridiculous because Reynolds, Walters and Sailor are all reggie players. Sailor is already a more value add offering than the other 2.

No to Sailor from me. Prefer Burton, Clifford or Drinkwater.

Drinkwater is a strange one, he kinda plays like Benji has been this year. He’ll throw a brilliant pass to set up a try, then 5 minutes later will just boot the ball out on the full. Very hot and cold sometimes. Would prefer the other two you mentioned over him

That’s why I have him third.

Tigers will have to be careful. Their formal reason for not keeping Benji is because they have too many halves, if they sign another one for next season it’ll be another media blowup.

Hopefully come November 1st we are already talking to players about joining us for 2022, we’ve got the money there’s plenty of talent available let’s do it ASAP

Who cares about the optics, sign the best players we can. If we can somehow miraculously get someone like Burton, we should do it. No brainer.

You’re right but it won’t have a positive effect on our players. We don’t want more unrest

Oh well, if they have a problem with upgrading our team, tough.
