    The off season is the best time to dream I guess.

    During an 80 minute NRL game, Latrell Mitchell plays for 10 minutes while he goes away with the fairies for the remainder 70 minutes, and you think he can play fullback?

    Latrell's a lazy Centre, definitely something he needs to work on (regardless if Centre or Fullback). Latrell's point scoring would take a hit in our team (as we don't have a Keary or Cronk and their side overall is superior), but adding the leading point scorer and 2nd most try scoring player in the game to our side would be a massive boost, especially when scoring points is a massive issue for us. I'd also say Latrell's struggled after Origin 1 and he can be better. I've enjoyed Meaney's improvement, but I'm not 100% he's going to be a long term Winger for us which means we're going to need a goal kicker, Latrell is a tier 1 goal kicker. I'd play him Centre, but he's going to be an expensive Centre.

    Canterbury in my opinion will keep foran, his a class act and a player who can steer a team and win games, it will be interesting on who to recruit, Cameron mc innes has to be our 9, a class centre is needed along with a enforcer in the packs that's 3 guys, how easy is that with our cap space,

    Latrell Mitchell is inconsistent, and MIA in games until it suits him. The Roosters will not let him go, so we are wasting our time even talking about him.

    Sharks are not going to release Xerri. Xerri's on contract until 2022. You'd need Xerri to pull a Matterson, which I guess is more likely these days... even then I think Sharks would move on other plays and meet in the middle somewhere, not sure why Tigers are not meeting in the middle with Matterson's demands (bad cap management probably, not allowing/planning for these sort of things).

    Not true. With the way you're talking about Latrell, Roosters' are not going to offer Latrell anything more then 600-700k. It'd come down to if Latrell would take a 300k (1.5m over 5 years) pay cut. Yes, it would cost 900k-1m to lure him away...

    I know you love him scoob, but the more I see of him the less he impresses me.

    Shocking defensively and can't even pass to his winger properly

    Might as well estimate how many drops of rain will fall in your backyard as estimate what portion of the salary cap is eaten up by the players we have.

    Can we start handing out bans for people who keep posting these threads.

    I'm guessing that the pecking to death would be quicker and less painful.

    CHN needs to grow his hair longer - he'd be heaps more fearsome. And RT should never cut his. Even Tol's was a lot more aggressive when his hair was shaggy back in the Storm days. I reckon if a few of them grow their hair, maybe get some dreads (eg Hoppa and Jacko), and we sign Fifita, we should be right for 2021.

    I prefer your second team. Not a big fan of latrell .. Too cocky... Then sooky when he has a bad game.( Post origin)... And not sure why everyone gets a hard on over Manu either.
    I'd throw all my money on Semi Radrada then keep what we have in:
    Dwz
    Smith
    Hoppa
    Meaney
    Harper
    Okunbar

    They all seem to be getting more familiar with each other as the games go on... With Semi on the wing we then have 7 solid backs to play with as well as lower grade feeders

    As if st merge let go of their best player (by miles). We are just as likely to get Cameron Smith lol.

    Manu is an absolute weapon. That’s why. Unbelievable talent and young.
