    I would love to see TLL at the club, he is a quality player with great go forward, size and agression. Plus he can play second row if needed. Sign him up!

    He would be an excellent addition to our team, he has really hit his stride this past year aswell. IMO we will be in with an excellent chance, if he goes to where the money is we would have to be certainty's one would think, considering Canberra have a fair few big name in their team as is and they will be hard to retain.

    Would be a good player to target. Raiders pack is getting pretty full so a few players might be squeezed out, and he is a metre eater we could use. Consistently over 100m/game last season. At 25 yrs, he is going into his prime, just like Costigan.

    8. Housten (25 yrs)
    9. DeGois (26 yrs)
    10. TLL (25 yrs)
    11. Taia (26 yrs)
    12. Paterson (23 yrs)
    13. Costigan (25 yrs)

    Now that is a quality pack. All going into their primes, TLL, Cositgan, Taia all rep players. Housten was knocking on the door in 2009, DeGois is in the top 6 or so hookers in the game (on 2008/2009 form) and we all know Paterson has the potential.

    Add to that Fa'aso, Tuimavave and Kaufusi, who are still around the same age, and have time to return to their best. And Hilder who even at 28, seems like a guy who wont age, and will continue to perform strong. Then there is the young guys like Edwards, Ailaomai, Cook, O'Donnell etc.

    The great thing about this is that we have identified someone early and not making a last minute attempt to get a player here. I hope he is not the only one and we have a few irons in the fire.

    This is great news! He would be an awesome signing. We'd have one of the most excellent packs in the comp if this happened. I say, sign him up!

    Imagine that!

    8. Chris Houston
    9. Isaac De Gois
    10. Tom Learoyd Lahrs
    11. Zeb Taia
    12. Cory Paterson
    13. Neville Costigan

    Not to mention having two of the most athletic wingers in the comp in Akuila Uate & James McManus.

    :pray:

    Wow this is amazing news, Tom is only just finding his best footy and I think his best is still to come. It's not just our money that'll seriously tempt him, it's knowing that he's here to lead our team and he doesn't have to play second fiddle anymore. Two NSW props in Snowden and TLL upfront for us sounds pretty damn good to me! :)

    Marquee target for 2011 so we can sign him this year and he plays for us in 2012.

    That would be a AWESOME signing if we can pull it off. But first thing is first we need to re-sign Gidley !! After that go for it and if we get him we will go close to the best forward pack in the comp.

    I think that Learoyd Lahrs was overrated a few years ago but now he uses his size and would be a great buy!

    He'd be a great signing, i mentioned him as a potential signing back around in June, July 2010 & looks like the football gods have been listening! :) He's also one of my favourite players & to have TLL & Snowden in the team aswell as our current pack, we'd have to have the best pack almost surely!

    So did Snowden say he wanted to come back to Newy or something, if so :dancing:
    imo we couldn't keep all those forwards for next year. Anyone of here know who's coming off contract?

    Well he hasn't said anything formal but the Knights are gonna target him in 2012 & you'd have to think we have a good chance as he's from Newcastle.

    I think we're definitely going to have to release a few over the next few years

    Off contract the end of this year: Cameron Ciraldo, Isaac De Gois, Kurt Gidley , Matt Hilder, Adam MacDougall, Constantine Mika, Kevin Naiqama, Wes Naiqama, Ben Rogers, Junior Sa'u, Steve Southern, Zeb Taia, Evarn Tuimavave

    Off contract at the end of next year: Joel Edwards, Richie Fa'aoso, Antonio Kaufusi, Cory Paterson, Mark Taufua, Dan Tolar

    Right there there's about 7-8 players I would be okay getting rid of if it means making our side stronger. If Stone shares my opinion and if Tinkler takes over, I have no doubt we'll be bringing quite a few big names to Newcastle.

    These are the people I'd let go for other players, exception of Doogs retiring. The rest not sure, but with the amount of talent we or at least hope of getting it wouls surely be worth it. I'd let go of Tolar but, Newcastle guy, its hard.
