    Pretty fair assessment. I was certainly willing to give Brenko the chance to improve his defensive game but alas that did not even look like happening. Certainly freakish in attack ( pretty good tackle busts and try assists) but when you let in tries with poor defence that pretty much negates some of that stat.

    Looking at last year he averaged 10 tackles a game missing 20% or two tackles in defence; his defensive tackle efficiency was 83.1% according to NRL website.

    Dont agree with this.. leaves us very light on in depth in outside backs

    Pretty much confirms the backs as
    1. Mbye
    2. B Moz
    3. J Moz
    4. Hopoate
    5. Montoya

    good luck if we get an injury

    I agree. We also let Phillips,kennar and chade stanley go, so we are very light in outside backs. I relly hopeReimis Smith comes along this year.
    Have no fear though, we always have holland to back us up. Lol

    Absolutely filthy we didn't give him one more season to see if he can improve his defense and also see what heights he could reach in attack under a different coach. He was our only attacking option out wide that always looked likely to create something. Farrrrrk ! I thought he would eventually come good and with the help of Jmoz, become a well rounded centre. Not happy !

    A few have said that Stanley is not playing for us in 2018. Has he retired, not re-signed or what? I haven't seen anything on him leaving.

    True, we mightn't have a lot of experienced replacements out wide but that might just give a couple of our young blokes a chance to taste FG. I can see Okunbar filling in out wide, Smith, Carr and maybe one or 2 of the 20's kids getting a shot here and there and that won't be a bad thing. Let's face it the blokes we had filling in last season didn't exactly change the world and we might blood a couple of good prospects.

    Not exactly spring chickens. Okay buys if at a good price but wouldn't want to be burning our cap on them.

    We have Bmoz, Jmoz & Eastwood off contract next year which easily clears $2m off the cap.

    The cap increase plus a few reserve graders off contract makes space.

    We will be done with paying a % of Graham and Kasianos contract.

    We need to be ruthless with recruitment.

    My number 1 target would be Michael Morgan, but rest assured he will take JT's salary and be the new pin up boy of the Cowboys.

    I would take a punt on Hastings or Sezer for the right price and chase after RTS, Mansour & Cordner.

    RTS
    Mansour
    Mbye
    Hopoate
    Montoya
    Hastings/Sezer
    Foran (probably be medically retired)
    Woods
    Lichaa/Woolford
    Klemmer
    Cordner
    RFM
    Jackson

    Woolford/Lichaa
    Tualalo
    Elliott
    Tolman (would be ideal if another club snapped him up)
