    After we give Hilder, Tahu and Clint Newton 80k each of second tier money it's hard to see us keeping anyone else.

    Newton will be up there with Greg Smith as our worst ever signing if we do bring him back. You just have to look at who we have to let go for next season to get him, so pointless.

    I think its more trying to get a combination of youth and experience into the side. Even the likes of Hilder, Quinn n possibly Newtons chances of playin first grade experience is slim i think bemefits are younger guys looking to crack into first grade in the future. You dnt really want the NSW Cup side to be filled with purely X NYC players.

    Personally i like to see more of the NRL players retire into NSW Cup rather retiring all together. Would u guys worry if Buderus chose to go another yr in NSW Cup???

    The Mole has reported the following in this week's issue of RLW...

    "Don't be surprised to see Knights Centre Peter Mata'utia sign with the Dragons for 2014. Peter is NRL class but hasn't been able to secure a regular spot and sees more oppurtunity in the Red V."

    The knights have also offered sione a full time contract for two years so he does not follow his brothers.

    Pete has officially agreed and will be a dragon in 2014 and 2015. Not good news. Another local talent gone.

    Wouldn't surprise me. They are a young very good team and have player with potential. Plus I herd there are at least 8 20s players moving to cup next year.

    So cowboys aren't in the hint anymore for any of them?

    Why would the dogs want them when they aren't even playing their best young outside back now?...

    If we lose all four brothers + Naiqama + Likiliki + Quinn I think it leaves us a bit thin in the backs for next season. We basically have the starting 5 + Tahu and Mantellato and no one else with firstgrade potential. Three injuries and we are looking at Clacherty, Alison or Mamo - all well short of firstgrade standard now.

    Having said that, the brothers are probably doing the right thing for their careers. They will find it hard to get a start here without injuries to our young backline reps.
