I think the fact that Isaac Lui gets picked ahead of him says a bit.
I was watching pretty closely earlier in the season. it seems more about wanting players to fill a role ie left edge, middle right edge, bench impact.

Matterson to me needs to play more than edge. Ive seen him stand out when he can roam around the field.
Its an opinion!

The recruitment dept are digging through the plodder market bin as we speak .. the club must have a wallet full of money as they certainly are not spending it .

Is it just me in thinking the Knights are better recruiters than us.. They have Trent Merrin in there sights and panthers happy to release if they can come to an arrangement..

WHY are we not been at least mentioned on ANY signings.. The knights fans at least get the impression there FO is trying to improve unlike ours.
Good question. Speculation only but it could be we have signed players and all parties are now keeping quiet until after the finals.
Perhaps because in years gone by we were mentioned in EVERYTHING to do with signings, and now we have a tighter ship that doesn't leak so much info.

Don't mistake lack of noise for lack of activity.

You might pat Knights on the back for their recruitment but it didn't do them much good in 2018. And frankly in the lead-up to 2018 I don't think they recruited any better than Tigers did, except they were able to jag Mitchell Pearce very late. Apart from that who did they get? Watson, Guerra, SKD the year prior, Moga, Ese'ese, Lillyman, Heighno. All Roosters and Broncos rejects who were retiring or injury-prone.

Ponga yes, they threw the sink at him and it's a great signing. Pearce just fine, but not a target for us when he sought a release.
They improved pretty much the same as we did for 17 to 18 (them 4 wins better us 5)
I've compared us to them recently and will be interesting to see how both clubs kick on next year... We have some ground to make up on them recruiting wise for next year

You don't know squat about what the club is doing. All your b**** and moaning will not make a scrap of difference. You will find out what is happenimg when the club tells us.

You go on and on about so called plodders.

So tell us all who would you recruit? Make sure that they are available and in the positions we need.

I think that we need three backs and three forwards.

How about you?

Plenty of high quality players in all the positions required have been available over the last twelve months ... why the club has not signed any who knows but please do not say the shelf is bare who’s fault is that at this stage of the year .. no moaning just realistic comments from a supporter that will be watching other teams compete in the semi final season .. and yes the team is full of plodders that is why I will be watching other teams for the next month.

Nothing to do with our recruitment but sheesh, eels are shopping Corey Norman who is on apparently $980k :shock: via fox.
Good luck trying to offload that contract..
No more plodders!

Yep heard it was $940k next year, raiders are their best chance, but eels are not stumping up enough cash apparently.

Add to that, Michael Jennings is apparently on $800,000.
Look Kenny Edwards is a knob I agree, I did mention he is a nut case. But as far as on field impact and performance goes his the exact kinda player we need to strengthen the squad.
Maybe not Edwards someone else similar. But every team has one and we are desperate for that kind of individual. Beggars can’t really be choosers, however as this is a Signing Suggestions thread I’ve put mine out there, from those opposing I’m interested to see / hear who others would nominate as a potential impact player, on the market???

Imagine having Edwards and Hipgrave in the same team. They'd probably take turns going to the sin bin every 10 minutes for the full eighty :lol:

I thought he left because of the way Taylor treated Farah.
