Brandon Smith or Josh Hodgson (max till 2023) will make me very happy. Pommy relationship with Luke Thompson may help us get it over the line.

He surely does this thread is just more rehash and stating the bleeding obvious over and over ..the killer i find is not KNOWING the who what and when.

Of course he needs a hooker. He knows that, the club knows that. Even parts of outer Finland that only watch rugba leeg once every 15 years knows that.

Hence why we are chasing Brandon Smith. Hence we enquired about Josh Hodgson.

Hence why the previous board and coach went hard for Api Korosau and nearly got him.

The problem is that everyone in the game knows we need a decent number 9 and the player managers will take advantage of this. Its easy to say "sign a decent hooker" but its another thing to just do it.

Hopefully we invest in our juniors and dont forget about them like Des did so we can produce some quality players instead of having to sign players all of the farkin time.

As for the go forward, I think you will find that with a decent hooker and outside backs like JAC and Naden starting our sets we are not as far off as alot of people think. We definitely need a decent middle and a decent backrower but I dont think we need to break the bank there.

hookers dont win the middle, the middles win the ruck, then the hooker can take advantage of it
I think he made a big mistake in thinking his current forward pack was good enough especially knowing Thompson was available until round 5

I was hesitant to open this thread seeing Davey started it, but ive gotta say he is making progress (not alot but still a little) i'd say he's progressed from the Kennel's Katoa to the Kennel's JMK...... if you keep knuckling down mate you be all the way up to the Waddel level by seasons end

keep up the good work

I was thinking he has progressed to repetitive.
