    I think in that article, they are rating the whole roster, not just recruitment.

    I am reset now with my belief for next year. If we still had Des nothing would have changed, but now i have optimism. So for me now... we will win the comp until we can't, will win the minor premiership until we can't, make the top 4 until we can't, top 8 until we can't. You get the picture. Its good to be back in that place! Fuck i hope the door hit Des on the way out. And i hope it was a big heavy door

    Time will tell if they'll miss Hunt or not. I was surprised they let Ese'ese and Blair leave but Bennett must have a lot of faith in Lodge. If Lodge starts he'll be in my Supercoach team :)

    Not just lodge, they signed that english guy they are touting as the next SBW. I forget his name, but by all reports, we wont next year.

    Yes but how many of the pommies really make it. Maybe 1 in 3 that come over here do anything beyond average. Most go home telling everyone they were picked on. Look at the Titans bloke from this year - gone. the bloke from Penrith the year before gone. The worlds best fullback from Warriors - gone. Yes some make here but most don't.

    Forwards go alright over here. Morley, Burgess, Graham are up there with the best. Backs have been shocking, that burgess bloke that played for easts and rosters, Sarginson who played for Tits last year, already back in the UK.

    Played for the West Tigers, came over from Saint Helens in pretty sure. Didn't do to much at all and went back to SL for Castleford

    Fringe 8 but I believe we will walk away from each game proud to support our team unlike the last couple years.

    Even if we lose by 14 but it was enjoyable to watch I'm happy right now..

    I've never fallen asleep watching dogs games on tv but the last 2 years I have..

    Hasler was not selling the product especially to fans that sit on the fence and don't watch too much league..

    We lost them lol

    The changes that have been made make me confident for 2018. There is a few options available that should be noted. If Mbye fails at FB,
    he can be rotated with Hopoate. I would start with Cleeland and Foran as halves, and have Brown on the bench. He can cover for the halves and hooker.
    The player who I expect big things from this year is Danny Fualolo. He may be a revelation as prop.

    The change was a great start but there are a lot of question marks over the existing roster. I will eagerly await the new play style and reinstalling what the jersey means to players who wear it. Some players will be a revelation under Dean and others will be robotic plods that Des wanted. It is up to them to showcase their talent in 2018. Bring it on.

    Compared with the last 2 seasons any positive change will be entertaining.
