    is what id be running with now CHN is gone, bring Topine into the squad and give him some time in the top grade instead of buying a stop gap solution.

    I have serious doubts that the NRL will be approving any new contracts for the near future. Paying already contracted players is apparently breaking the bank. So this is largely pointless to discuss. If we'd had interest when he left league he'd have been a great signing. But now I think focusing on the future should be the priority.

    We need to sign players that are going to be with us for at least two seasons. If they're for two seasons they need to be someone like Friend who's still in the game (similar to when we signed Kimmorley) but also for positions where we don't have many options. Players like Teo and Cooper don't fit that. We should be worrying about 2021 not 2020.

    They will not approve contracts but you can get everything else besides that done and wait until after the Coronavirus calms down. Basically you'd just agree on X% of salary cap (and use the current salary cap to get the $).

    Don’t need him, Chris Smith will be back next year so we’ll start winning again.

    Ben Teo circa 2014 would be an awesome addition to the squad.
    Skilful, aggressive, competitive.
    Ben Teo 2020, age 33, having spent 5 years in rugby, definately not as an exciting prospect.
    In saying that, it would still be a good signing if we could get him for 2020, 2021 and perhaps a club option for 2022. It'd take the rest of this year for him to adapt back to league, 2021 turning 34 could play a big part in creating a winning culture at the dogs again.

    That guy still around?

    I wouldn’t waste money on him. Better off trying to get Thompson over a year earlier.

    most definitely sign teo, as well as quade cooper,we need halves maybe the club can resign brent sherwin and goal kicker we can sign hazam, sign omearly as we need some aggression in our forwards

    stop with the wanting to sign old players well past their use by dates, money needs to be spent building a strong team not wasting it on rubbish

    33 years old.. may be ok for a year or 2, But I would say NO as well. As for better options for this year.. who knows.

    Exactly. Let Broncos buy him and take J.Hopoate off their hands.
