If we're talking about their form after they left they'd be some slight changes (e.g. Eastwood).

I think a team of former players still playing NRL (+ Rona ) would be a more interesting and relevant side to assess.

  4. Tommy Talau
  5. Curtis Rona
  6. Josh Reynolds
  7. Moses Mbye

Has any club lost so many decent players over such a short time and ended up with so many duds; yet still paying the exact same salary cap as every other team?

Frightening.
Cowboys give us a good run for our money to be fair.

Funny thing is on current salaries we could probably afford to have this team running around for us and they would definitely be a big improvement on what we currently have.

Smith, Kikau, Ponga just from the top of my head...
Hamlin-Uele is another one.

You could build a whole team around those 4 and it would be completive for several years if you got a decent half.

Hopefully we lose a lot of our duds at the end of the year.

Highlights the horrible recruitment and retention by DES. Lane , Finucane and Taupau in particular were bad decisions. None of these 3 guys were chasing big $$$ and all looked great . Cook as we know has turned out to be a major gaffe, but he had not showed his true potential with us at the stage he left.
