    That's an interesting formula.
    40% on the spine.

    Well we only have to win 3 more games than this year to make the 8 and 6 more to make the 4. We could've easily won 3 more this year with any sort of luck even playing the rubbish we did. If Pay gets them working together and for each other and they play a more expansive game there isn't a team in the comp we shouldn't be confident about beating. As with all these things injuries will determine who makes it and who doesn't but we are in the comp next year up to our eyeballs. We have moved on older and 10 min players and replaced them with younger and creative ones. With the talent coming through I'm comfortable that we will not only make the 8 but make the 4.

    We usually have pretty good years when we get a new coach. Steve Folkes 98 made the GF, Keven Moore 09 finished 2nd and Hasler 2012 finished 1st.

    Blair and Marshall are not big losses. Bird will be outstanding. They’ll be in the 8

    If he doesn't break down. The guy has a history with shoddy ankles.
    Disagree about Marshall and Blair.....a lot of experience lost and nothing to replace that except a forward (Matt Lodge) that has a history of off field discretions and shouldn't have been even considered to br registered by the NRL for what he did in the USA.
    Apparently he signed for the Broncos at $85K per season but the Knights offered him $1.5million over 3yrs and he chose to stay with the Broncos.
    Lol, the Roosters recruitment officer works for the Broncos as well.

    Not sure about the roosters recruitment officer working for the broncos, for what most of us know, it’s because the players love Wayne Bennett, that’s why they take pay cuts!

    Go to Newcastle and earn in 6 months what will take him 3yrs to earn at the Broncos all because of Papa Bennett......lol, what a load of crap!!

    I'll bet none of them see any of it either. He should have been locked up in jail ... end of discussion.
