    TripleM Saab asks for release from Dragons?

    Thanks for the heads-up, I am one of “those” people who hammer Meaney for being scared of contact, so this is good advice. A no from me for Saab based on this scouting from @Haddaway!

    Official Round 13 - Bulldogs vs Storm - Discussion Thread

    Absolutely agree @Baby Blues I’m also a big fan of Hynes, I like his balance and with a background in the halves, has great ball playing ability. I think with a decent go in first grade could be a star for sure! Will be a challenge being thrown in this weekend without games under his belt though...

    Outstanding!!! To come out and support the club when our “brand” has taken a battering says a lot to me about Arthur and his family. To me it signals loyalty and I for one have a very long memory and this support will not be forgotten. Will be pumped to purchase a new jersey with their logo...

    Meaney = No He looked good yesterday as it was a dour affair and he didn’t have to do too much (did take some nice high kicks under pressure) and it suited his strengths, safe and decent positional play. He lacks a physical presence and doesn’t look like breaking the line and gets rag dolled...

    I’d like to see Cogger get a run, I said it last week and I’ll say it again this week, we desperately need a “game manager”, that last 30mins we should’ve closed that game out. Lewis was shit....again and Wakeham wtf. Horrendous interchange management by SG.

    Yeah, I don’t trust Gutho, he’s not a lock like Teddy and TTurbo. I’m going to hold KP for 1 more week to see if Knights do tweak that attack to get him more quality ball. They’ve shoe-horned Hoy in at the expense of letting KP drift behind and play both sides of the ruck - weird.

    Did Ponga pick up a knock? Also heard someone say the Knights have changed up the game plan and it’s not suiting him, Tex Hoy getting the ball more instead of him... Thinking Gutho trade also, I don’t know though, he’s surely due some inconsistency!

    I know it’s probably in the “visionary” basket but how about during the game, if needed, replace a key position on the field - hooker (player who touches the ball the most) with another hooker? Could be me or maybe I’m going a little rogue with that suggestion?
