Really struggling to find the positives.
Luciano Leilua is a good signing. Matterson is a loss. Marsters was pretty poor last year and letting him go was probably the right decision but he could turn it around. Robbie isn’t really a loss but we do need a hooker desperately.
We are down from last year for sure. Matterson would have been a perfect lock for us but that didn’t happen.
At least we haven’t bought any terrible signings yet. That is a positive based on our history.
Leilua is a fine signing in isolation, but he doesn’t do what Matterson did. He would have been a good player to sign in addition to having Matterson. Farah is a loss to the extent that he was a full time hooker who could play 80. It was very short sighted to put all our eggs in one basket with Liddle. Not questioning his ability but his body is just not up to the rigours of NRL.
Hoping Jacob is over the injuries now & kicks on for us, Benji style. As for Robbie, no doubt he was a champion for us on the field but his time had certainly come.
There really hasn’t been any top quality players leave or join any Club. Good players maybe but top quality not so much… Dogs picking up Stimson is akin to us picking up Leilua …as an example
That list of elite players haven’t come here sure but they haven’t gone anywhere else either
Yep, the last time was probably Cronkesco to the roosters. And they go on to win 2 in a row. Go figure.
Shows how tight the comp is really.
Yep RoS is a good Star Wars movie. Rounded out the sequel trilogy as best it could I believe. Definitely not a perfect movie with plenty of wtf moments (not unlike our signings/rumours thread), but I enjoyed it.
As for the sequel trilogy as a whole, I don’t see the point of it. Would’ve be better if tLJ never happened & RoS made up episodes 8 & 9.
Still always good to have new Star Wars movies on the big screen!
