    We need to sign players that would walk into any team, currently we only have Pearce and Ponga. Knights need to go hard at signing these four Norman, Klemmer, Napa and Taupau

    1 Ponga
    2 SKD
    3 Ramien
    4 Moga
    5 Lee
    6 Norman
    7 Pearce
    8 Napa
    9 Griffin /Levi
    10 Klemmer
    11 Taupau
    12 Guerra
    13 Glasby
    14 Watson
    15 Esee
    16 Dan/Jacob/Fitzgibbon
    17 Sione/Barnett/Buhrer/Stone/Lamb/Ross

    A lot of competition for spots and depth for injuries

    We’re not Brisbane? We’re not allowed to flagrantly cheat the salary cap with no consequences.

    I'd take Dan and most definitely Ese over Napa.

    This is the team I would like to see most in 2019 being realistic on what we have, could easily pick up:

    1. Ponga
    2. Lee
    3. Moga
    4. Ramien
    5. SKD
    6. Watson
    7. Pearce
    8. Ese Ese
    9. Levi
    10. Dsaf
    11. Fitz
    12. Guerra
    13. Glasby
    14. Pythian
    15. Sione
    16. Barnett
    17. JSaf

    Would like at least one more big quality prop but seems unlikely. Would also like to see a decent outside back picked up to take Lee’s place and create more competition.

    Ha ha ha. The intent is I hope we could snag a better talent before start of next season. Otherwise he’ll do.

    I think even without another signing next year's team barring injury looks okay. We just need to work hard on line speed and edge defence and I think we are a top 8 contender next year

    Phythian? That won’t happen (although I could be surprised).

    IMO, Sione in the 14 and JJ in the 15, if he plays well enough this year for a longer contract. Haven’t seen much of him, but he just seems hungry for it. If we can’t pick up a top line prop to replace him, then I’d be happy with him being selected.
