Barrett no longer at the dogs is because of Gus not the board. When Gus got involved weeks ago during training and won that's when it all changed for Barrett. Had he won against the knights he would be still coach this week. This was Gus decision.
Would it be a stupid move or a good move to have JMK at lock and bring Cook into the hooker role and give BBO more minutes?
Just thinking about it like Jackson is too slow maybe Jeremy can handle that role quicker and he works hard in defence. Just a thought.
What did you guys expect? We were in their half and couldn't score we've improved a lot from last year but we don't have the players in key positions until next year but we still need a decent half back. I'd keep the same line up...
Mate I used to get annoyed when inu was playing centres when his best was on the wing then we had cotric playing centres same thing his best was on the wing. Naden ain't a centre not hard !
Burns should partner with Josh addo-carr and schoupp centre and naden on the wing and if Barrett wants...
Me I would have Naden on the wing, try averillo in the centers or keep schoupp there and have burns in the centers as well. Have Cook starting 9 and BBO as the half. JMK off the bench.
That's what barrett should be experimenting.
No one mention about bringing back Lewis to the club lol that video clearly shows how much better we played with Lewis at half than the rest who wore the no7 lol he really should use that video to get a good contract overseas.
If jmk is injured I would start BBO at half put cook at 9 and have...
What should be round 1 line up
1. Matt Duffy
2. Brent Naden
3. Braidon Burns
4. Jake Averillo
5. Josh Addo-Carr
6. Matt Burton
7. Bailey Biondi-Odo
8. Luke Thompson
9. Josh Cook
10. Paul Vaughan
11. Jack Hetherington
12. Josh Jackson
13. Tevita Pangai Junior
14. Jeremy Marshall-King...
Ray dib copt a lot towards the end of his time but I truly believe he wasn't the issue. Castle and Hasler are to blame for a lot of this mess. I think if the dogs landed Moses and Tedesco dogs things would of been a lot different.
Rona on the wing
Inu on the wing
Utai at his peak
All these players were good for us. It's a shame we didnt get to see much of Cotric especially now that dogs have better players on the field.
Gus must have another signing up his sleeve, to sign Asiata must of got him on the cheap because I would of thought they'd go for Peachy for Elliots money.. Unless they're going to use Elliots money to upgrade Burton's contract?
Dogs either need a half or hooker because this kid can play both hopefully these next few games we can tell where he is best suited for next year. Burton, Odo and Dufty looks like will be seeing lots of points next year!
1. Matt Dufty
3 Brent Naden
6 Jake Averillo (personally I'd go Lewis)
7 Matt Burton
8 Paul Vaughan (to be signed)
9 Jeremy Marshall-King
10 Luke Thompson
12 Josh Jackson
13 TPJ (to be signed)
14 Baily Biondi-Odo
15 Jack Hetherington...
We should take North Sydney bears and have them as our feeder club when the clubs contract is up with the roosters? And invest in the central coast area, while that's happening push for a stadium in Liverpool and grow the junior base out south west as well.
Also is it possible to have a feeder...
I don't know something about Atoni he doesn't involve himself much both in defence and attack very lazy attitude maybe a new club would change that its a shame he has so much potential but he really burns me with his effort.
We just need to be patient and focus on the juniors and recruit players that will develop into good players. No need to continue to spend overs just so we can have a short term success. Believe in the process. We signings like what parra did with the forward from warriors that'd be good.
Liverpool is the way to go. Thought of it few years ago and I thought there should be another soccer team in the south West area and not long ago there's a new soccer team which could share the stadium in Liverpool with the dogs.
Is it possible the club could own a soccer team? Like buy out the...
Well if he wants a contract next year or anyone to look at him he needs to be more involved with bloody aggression and yesterday apart from his mistake I think it's one of his best games he's played in first grade if not his best game.
Right now we're frustrated because we haven't won. I rather invest in young upcoming players and sign a few good players and focus on the junior system like we have done before des came along with Noel cleal and stuffed all that up. I was a big fan of Mulholland as our recruitment officer he...
We need to be playing players in their actual positions and recruit players in the position they've played well in. I'm sick and tired of seeing a wingers wanting to play centre or fullback and the coaches make them decisions. Sign a bloody centre to play centre sign a winger to play wing. Also...
I reckon Allan to centre partner Cotric, Meany fullback or if DWZ removed his errors in his game I would have him there he did really well when he first came on board. New specialist centre (not a winger who wants to play centre pls) to partner with Josh Ado Carr.
We've seen inu who played his...
Hahaha I wish we can wipe the whole list and start from scratch lol so embarrassing. I probably would keep Thompson as well not sure about his price yet to prove his worth. And maybe Elliot as 19th man got give him some credit but you're right cotric I would keep.
We don't want to spend too much money on players then screw us in the long run. My thoughts buy a good hooker if not buy James Roby and scout for an upcommer. Buy Tapau and a good centre. The rest we need to invest on the juniors and scout upcoming players.
We need to focus on the young players that haven't come through yet and also recruit upcommers. We pulled out players like barba, finucane, Jackson, tapau and klemmer through the system and noone has heard of them back then besides barba shined the most in the system. We should not only think of...
