So true mate. I hope you’ve been well
Thats what we’ve all been doing since 2004 Scoobs, we need a bit more than that right now!
Thats the problem though, due to the NRL not investing in our grass roots enough and PC softcocks pulling their kids out of league and into nancy sports like AFL and Soccer the talent pool just isn’t as big as it used to be so the juniors aren’t producing the likes of Johns, JT and Smith like players anymore!
The NRL need to get things happening with a second tier comp as well as age representative comps as soon as possible. Get players playing whether in a nines format, Summer comp, mid week comp - whatever it takes to get players to show what they can do, for clubs to get back into recruiting n developing players. They cant afford to lose the whole year. At the same time they need to look at how the playing pathways will be structured in 2021 n beyond. The players will go where they can get a game - an opportunity n be seen.
You can't be serious
You should add that to the majority of your posts
We need to sign players before a second grade comp resumes ... Players like Tristan Sailor just sitting there ripe for the picking
At this stage I'd be happy for us to get either T'eo or McCullough or BOTH cause I'm really concerned we will get no-one )
Huh? hasn't McCullough already signed with the Knights?
Brandon Smith on the footy show was asked by Sterlo if he's been assured he's next in line for 9 after Cam. He basically said the staff have talked to him about it but they are always going to tell him what he wants to hear and that we will see if they are telling the truth lol. He also said it's great learning of Cam and that he's not going to complain about being stuck behind him.
Going to be interesting to see how this all pans out... With 18 rounds no byes and finals I think Cam will be done after this year and Brandon will replace him and Grant will stay at Tigers
Thank god you’re not recruiting for us then. Don’t get too worked up, we will get better signings than that soon
Yep - atm - most clubs will not have the 34 players need to filed two teams each week - thats why the nrl needs to start planning for when it will be possible to play games to give as many players as possible the opportunity to play, impress, get match fitness, get recruited/ contracts for 2021.
I hope you're right but I don't have a lot of confidence in our recruitment team. The Knights have now signed 2 decent hookers while we have none. McCullough would definitely be an upgrade on JMK. Katoa was only 3rd string hooker at the Panthers and he had to actually reach out to us (phone call).
Knights already had Pearce, Ponga and Klemmer on big money and now they have 2 decent hookers + they're also getting Frizel which means the Dragons will now be after Bateman. Who are we getting (other than Thompson) I'd like to know.
Can you imagine how people would blow up if we signed McCullough?
It’s no point comparing us to other teams. Judge the recruitment team for 2021 when they don’t have a reduced cap and someone like Foran on 1.2mil
Whats your go?
brandon smith future is in the hands of cam smith, if cam smith plays on brandon smith goes elsewhere, brandon was pretty much promised the hooker role next season, but cam smith wont retire, storm are in a pickle lose the next in line, push out their best player to keep the next in line, this was thecissue late last season in the storm, players had enough of cam smiths demands
He'd be in my top three signings, he has the potential to be something very special.
Not that it would ever happen but ahh well, dreams are free
Too much crack on a cold night
Why its an affordable team, a good team. What players you have a problem with.
