    I’m not sure they are even looking to recruit. Pay said he was happy with what he has and they haven’t even announced that anyone has been promoted. Our squad had massive holes in it to begin with we can’t get away with not filling those 3 vacant roster spots.

    Is matt doorey really that bad? We lost two second rowers and his name still has not been mentioned.
    Are we buying too many fringe first graders that our younger players cannot be promoted? Pitovao is another example. I think hes been playing in the middle last season or 2. Doesnt look like hes going to play nrl soon with sue, smith and britt in front of him.

    That’s the biggest problem with the current NRL squad there’s too many fringe NRL players that are blocking the juniors coming into first grade. We have 7/8 proven NRL players and the rest are fringe players that have been in and out of NRL at a number of clubs and failed to stamp themselves as first graders or players very early in their career.

    I’ve been one of his biggest supporters however....
    Unfortunately he’s cut from a different cloth. Yes he has a great attitude, yes he can defend. He can’t set a single attacking play let alone direct a full set of 6.His mobility,speed & agility are his glaring weaknesses. Can’t see him featuring in the halves (barring injuries ). Not mobile enough to play on an edge or centre or lock. Could be useful #14 at very best.

    By workhorse I presume you mean plodders- our roster is littered with plodders/workhorses. Sure they’ll never lose you a game; but they will never won you one either.

    Not sure mate. If im not mistaken, you have to be 19 to play nrl. He was playing schoolboys last year. Plus he only had a handful of u20 games. May be next year more likely

    I think Topine really needs a full season in Canterbury cup 1st he will be a gun his just not ready yet he only 18 don't turn 19 till August he struggled in the seniors trials during the pre season with the pace of the game its a shame that he don't get game time this year in Canterbury cup

    I feel like CHN was really coming into the year in form as well :( he is definitely big loss. He would have worked well with Foran running to.

    SO SO disappointed still regarding CHN. I’m dreading the day soon where he’ll be in another teams jersey absolutely tearing up the opposition. Two clubs have already officially enquired about his services for season 2021.

    I’m holding hope he comes back to us. He was becoming my favourite player.

    I predict that at least 5 players will be playing out of position, we will continue with no game plan and the bench will be misused.
