    Competition for positions is what we have lacked since no stones days. Our resources have been so thin on the ground copy and paste has been our rule. A few games dominating in reggies would be just the thing for the twins to realise how much they have improved and really fire them up.

    Signing Blair could go either way, he could perform or he could be a flop like he was at the tigers. You don't want to be throwing that sort of money at a someone that could go either way.

    [​IMG]Personally I would prefer Graham but not at a mill a year but hopefully the dogs would pay 1/2 of that and he is only on that because it was back ended so 6 or 700,000 for a second year would be ok as the guy would teach our forwards how to never give up ...He hates to lose more than anyone ...The Twins Dad told me they don't ever want to leave The Knights and would sign for life if they could and by the looks of this he is right...
    If we got Graham and with Ese,ese coming , The Twins , and the way King is Building his game we would be looking good in the front row ...King and Fitzy are coming along nicely I reckon... Fitzy has a good understanding with Lamb which is good ....IF we could just get PauliPauli to improve like King and Fitzy have I would be so happy .....Loving Watching the boys have a dig for the 80 I don't care if we don't win another game this season its just great to see how far the young guys have come .....

    The dogs would be mad to let Klemmer go even if it means letting go a number of other players but from the Knights perspective it's worth making the enquiry as he could be our pack leader for the next decade with the twins, Sione and Barnett. Klemmer and Barnett could start some brawls together.

    That's their problem, they're at a point they may not have any choice. They haven't been able to offload anyone (except Kasione and their still paying a chunk of his wage)

    Yea your right they have painted themselves into a corner with the salary cap but personally I would rather have Klemmer in my team than woods or Foran personally I think Foran best footy is behind him and I don't know if he can get back to that level again, maybe Des can get him back their but I doubt his the coach in 2018.

    Not happy Blair for 4 years at age 31, keeping in mind Tigers efforts, rather Tolman, think he has been unsung at Dogs, prefer him to Klemmer, better all round game and prefer over the Pom due to his neck and age.

    Klemmer does a lot of big runs, but outside of that he does nothing.
    No offload, poor D, penalties.
    Id pick Tolman also tbh.

    His D has gotten much better this yr though.
