Very excited about the way the roster is building. We have some of the best backs in the comp, we are very underrated in that department, which I like. The world knows we are 2-3 quality props short and without addressing that we most likely won't make the 8 in 24, however we are looking stacked everywhere else. Even in the halves, some genuine options and genuine competition. Hoping BBO can recapture some form as that will create some nice headaches.

We also have genuine competition for spots now, particularly in the spine. This is a major advantage and something we’ve been missing for a while.

I don’t know much about this bloke, but a few members here on TK have mentioned him from time to time. Thought I’d share this about his current status.

STEADY EDDIE’S A CHEEKY DEVIL

He is the former Penrith Panther who has knocked back an NRL deal to work as a concreter.
Hulking Queenslander Eddie Blacker has rejected a development contract with the Cowboys to ink a deal as a semi-professional with Hostplus Cup side Norths Devils.
At 195cm and 116kg, Blacker is a man mountain who was part of Penrith’s NRL squad this year, playing one game for the Panthers against the Cowboys in round 25.
The Cowboys recently offered Blacker a chance to be part of their squad for the 2024 season, but the 23-year-old has opted to juggle work as a concrete with his football duties for the Devils.
Blacker, who has played two NRL games, including one for the Dragons in 2020, has not given up hope of playing NRL again and wants to fight his way back through the Queensland Cup system at Norths.

Love the positivity brother!

This roster on paper is actually exciting unlike the dark years under Pay and Tbaz. There isn't much deadwood left, it's just a question how they come together and play as a team.

Our back 5 could be a massive asset next season. Even if we don't get props that offer a big improvement. We have options for the halves which will no doubt be discussed in depth over the off season. Our second row is looking pretty good. A few more props will be put on the market between now and the end of the trade period. We'll improve the stocks at some stage.

Compared to the sloths in Perham and Alamoti we had this season..it's a massive improvement.

Can someone tell me why Pangai Junior is still listed as a player on the Bulldogs site team list.

I have been checking for and noticed players like Burns, Thompson, Pele ect were still listed. They added some of the new signings like Taaffe and Crichton and Salmon. Now they have added all the new signings and taken out all the unsigned players except for Pangai Junior. Not sure whats going on but it seems strange they didn't take his name out with the others.
