Been going through the forward line up for next year and when we have Thomo and Ogden available I can't see him making the 17. Will probably have to play him in the first few rounds at least off the bench due to his probable salary or if they want to try and retire him. Maybe make him play the full 80min in all the trials and hope he picks up an injury or is that too harsh...

I dont know what happened to Napa. Very disappointing. Its not that he didnt improve, its how badly he regressed.

Reported that the coaching staff are working on every players fitness individually.

If Napa does play surely he will be in improvement on past years with this off season behind him. Could he not be an impact player like he always should have been off the bench? Surely the coaching staff from the past 3 years carry alot of the blame for his lethargic performances the last couple of years.

With the rumours swelling around Klemmer and Napa its looking that way. Wouldnt say no to a straight swap if klemmer comes crawling.
My mate a huge knights fan reckons a player swap might be happening

It true would be awesome Klemmer is exactly what we need. There does seem to be a bit of a falling out over there and he has also gotten out of favour with the NSW selectors for some reason. Only problem from what people are saying he is on 900k or something stupid, we could possibly pay that next year but would have to downgrade him to max 600k for his next contract. Don't want to see us miss out on JAC or someone because he is taking to much cap space.

Naps is soft After he joined us. yes he had the injury, but he was a feared man and an enforcer at the roosters..we all knew him as a mongrel with massive hits an power!! He’s had a couple of good games this year, and saw some of that for brief moments.

Top bloke, love him at the club.. just want to see him fire up and get back to how he is known to play. When he does it will be a huge!!!

That's a great comment - take a bow !!
