To get around the park we need a 7,
Release a back so Averillo can fit in there somewhere and I'd be happy with the Roster

Not Ashley Taylor. Don't want him near our club.

If we're talking shit options why not include Lukey Brooks.
People laugh but he's legitimately the 6th-8th best halfback in the comp, which by my count is better then the worst halfback in the comp. Count it out:
1. Cleary
2. Hughes
3. DCE
4. Reynolds
5. Moses
6. Walker

Then who?

Hunt, Johnson, Pearce(a bit better)but you have a point after that is maybe around 10th "best" but still wouldn't entertain any of these.Taylor isn't the right fit even if he was good enough.

I'd have Shaun Johnson and Pearce ahead and maybe Fogarty on par. He's on close to 850k next year, any club looking to take him on would need to pick up a big chunk of that.

11. Brooks
12. Taylor

S. Walker behind Lam and Hutchison atm so hard to place him. On potential (and shown a fair bit this year to be fair) S. Walker's around Moses. I probably wouldn't take anyone under Fogarty to replace Averillo at halfback either which basically means we can't get a better option all things considered.

Pearce is too slow now, he killed the newcastle attack on the weekend. Ponga needs it first off the ruck not out the fukn back.
Taylor is a 6, he doesnt handle the pressure of a 7.
IMO none of the above are better than Averillo or have a higher ceiling than Averillo.
