    Any signing will be good as long as it improves our first grade squad, we have plenty of good reserve graders and up and coming young locals. The buy MUST be a good buy.

    The way things are shaping, at least 30 of our senior squad will have firstgrade experience next season - maybe 35. I suspect that will be an NRL record number.

    Exactly right mate... They have a plan, which is just starting to come to fruition. Hopefully, all these changes are reflected in results on the field next year.

    He has been signed for 2018 so let's see if he gets fit to play and then assess him, I'm hoping he displays more of the bits he showed

    He proved he was worth another second tier contract for a year.
    If he plays the whole season and is our player of the year next year it will be the best 60k or whatever we ever spent.

    He proved to me he has masses of ability and a calm head. I've. I doubt it he stayed fit all season we would have been a better team.

    Billy- this is my point exactly, we have ample stocks of players who have been exposed to the requirements of NRL , they offer a substantial stock of back up players should they be needed, what they need is time and selective exposure with experienced on field support.
    The current forwards have enough grunt and size , Guerra brings experience and will stiffen D.
    We are lacking a tradesman prop enforcer to provide grit and substance to our willing but flaying pack.
    What the team really needs is a half that can own the big moments control "shifts" as required, these don't come cheap and will require substantial cap surplus to action promptly if the opportunity arises.

    Have to give the boys some credit 88. It was the starting forward pack at least.

    9 nrl regulars this season. Half a side. We couldn't have gone too bad to keep them to 0.
