    Welh would be a nice purchase..

    8. Napa
    10. Welch
    11.Stimson
    12.CHN
    13.Jacko

    14. Ogden
    15.RT
    16.Tolman
    17.RFM / Martin / Kalache… Its a strong forward pak for 2020 if it happens.. Sadly our backline needs 2 centres and we are in desperate need of a hooker still too.

    Enough is enough with flicking players to other clubs at our expense.

    Elliott needs to be flicked to reserve grade and left there.

    Pay needs to be flicked back to the Nations capital.

    Its brainless flicking any players now, when the majority of them are off contract next year, unless another club forks out the entire contracted amount for the said player.

    We have 8 players off contract this year- Olive, Katoa, Harper, Brown, Lichaa, Martin, Fualalo and Tualau. Take your pick on who to flick and replace them with what we need and hopefully is available

    We have 8 players off contract this year. 3 forwards, 2 spine players and 3 backs. We need to fill these 8 spots (7 minimum) either by re-signing the off-contracted players or by finding new ones.

    We need 2 forwards, 3 spine players and 3 backs.

    Stimson is one forward. Now tell me genius which other players can we recruite who are off-contract and fit our cap.

    Please enlighten me genius

    Forward stocks are healthy indeed, especially with Ogden and RT off the bench would give us a lot of punch through the middle.

    But yeah we desperately need that strike centre and more creative hooker.

    If another club was to pay every cent of Elliott's remaining deal, than yes

    Haha, thanks for the compliment, called me genius twice. And go easy on your blood pressure.

    Good that you're happy with the signing. Would probably rather keep Martin, just my opinion.

    Watched Liddle a couple of weeks ago, kid does look good.

    And we need 2 strike centres, Hoppa needs to go.

    You know who looked really good last wk, Canberras fill ins Simmonson and Sebastian Kris. I reckon they a future weekly starters in any team.

    Why the change of heart BTW. I'm sure I read you saying there's no use signing like for like players in another thread. What's changed your opinion on Stimson as opposed to re-signing one of our contract players.
