    Extend Reynolds, Tolman urgently.

    Eastwood, Lafai, Frank next for the right price.

    This morning Greenburg was on the Grill team. They asked about the rumours of Folau to the dogs next year. Said he knows him personally and is a great guy but nothing has happened. Also stated he knows he's only got a one year deal and wouldn't be doing his job if he wasn't interested. Didn't flat out say kno. I hope to god we don't buy him and not worry about our halves. We need a decent half, not another outside back!

    Tolman and Todd Carney have been in talks with South Sydney. Hopefully our club re-signs Aiden, but hate to say that at the moment it looks unlikely:(

    I reckon we do need an outside back as turner is probably playing his last for us, Sila got a long way to go
    we need a big tall fast winger
    but obviously a half is whats most important lets see how Robbie Kamoto plays in nyc

    I get the feeling Moses mbeye is being groomed to be a long term half. He is prob more of a traditional five eight but these days it's more just about a left half and a right half.
    He is listed as five eight partnering Hodko in Sundays trial

    Hope he goes well. Heard josh Morris on radio say Moses is fastest in the club over 40 m s.
    can he kick in play? Can he organise? Hope so. He is clearly athletic enough.

    they played moses mostly in the centres last year and i was surprised to see how fast he was
    I was thinking of him being a hooker

    would the dogs benifit with folau, and at what cost, we have top young forwards coming through, yet we dont seem to have any young wingers, as none are being talked about here

    Sila is ok, Drury Low is a good option too.

    Though if we land Folau it's good bye Turner and most likely another 300k to come from somewhere. We have alot of money to play with clearly with the likes of the salary cap going up, 3rd partys, Hodkinson, Keating, Halatau, Turner, Tolman, Eastwood, Pritchard all off contract. Payne gone. I'd honestly expect we lose Keating, Hodkinson, Halatau and Turner retire, Pritchard won't get the money he was on with T Williams wrapped up for years and Jackson and Finucane coming through. Tolman and Eastwood wouldn't be asking for much more then they are currently on.

    We could land JT & Folau though if you use the cap increase and 3rd party smartly and most likely lose 4-5 players. Think about the cap increase is what 800k this year? Who knows what next year, granted some of that will go to the youngsters etc but would still allow us basically to buy Folau out of that.

    Folau would be a great addition for any club. A backline of Barba, Folau, Morris, Inu, Perrett is unbeliveable. Inu or Folau can play wing or centre. However the reality is JT should be our first target after retaining Reynolds. I expect he will be too.

    Although Falou would be a great signing, I agree. We don't need a centre. Inu and Morris are more than good enough. We should focus on securing JT's services

    I don'twant Beale and frankly, I think JT is not worth the investment considering his age. I really feel the Dogs should be chasing Mitch Pearce. He's off contact this year and would be perfect.

    If we miss out on JT and Pearce then I think Hodko is worth a shot. Poor bloke hasn't really had a chance to impress in FG and I rate him more than KK. Williams from Canberra or Stig from Newy would also be worth a look.

    Turner I assume will be gone after this season, are we planning on spending too much $$$ to keep Folau on the wing? With Morris and Inu in the centres, I can't see were else we would put him?

    Possible the centres and shift Inu to the wing again.

    If Sam Tomkins confirms he's interested in NRL, and we aren't interested/can't afford JT, I reckon we should make a play at him.
