When exactly did we become worse than the Sharks ?

Did our recruitment team even think about making an offer to Chambers ? I'd really like to know.

Seems the Sharks are beating us to everything, Ramien, McInnes (2 hookers while we have none), nearly got Bellamy (we probably didn't even make an offer), good chance of getting Reynolds (we probably didn't make an offer). Now they get their 3rd centre (Chambers) while the only 1 we have is f..king Hopa who needs a walking frame. The only win (or loss some might call it) we got from them was Flanagan - after they made us pay extra with a late offer LOL

This on top of giving us Lichaa and them winning the big one with Barba and Ennis. They also had B. Moz for a while.

Oh and they also got Woods from us but we paid some freight initially.

Tolman a loss also according to some (not IMO though)

Fitzgibbon already ‘sharpening the knives’ to the cap
Let’s see how the sharks go losing the big money players plus the rest cut. Somehow I don’t think Fitzy understands the ‘Uncle Nick brown paper bags’ don’t appear at cronulla player negotiation meetings

Yup.. it’s gone from bad to worse, not enough words to describe the utter pain and disheartening times, but have to stick tough as always an hope for better times in 22.

Seriously how old is chambers now? He was a washed up grub when he left, recruiting him and Reynolds a highly paid 30 year old is not the fucking answer. We start paying overs for players on the decline we get ourselves back in salary cap shit

Pre season we were talking top 8, losing Jack for 3 weeks is worse than you think.

Signing will chambers would be the most short sighted move honestly you guys don’t think
Yeah signing any outside back on the other side of 30 for this year makes very little sense. The year is cooked and we will need a miracle to avoid the spoon signing Chambers wouldn’t change that.

Seems like us and Cronulla will be the main players in the playing market over the coming months. Sadly cronulla are a more attractive destination.

Chambers is Hoppa V2 - old and slow. What value is there in signing Chambers when he’s 32 years old? Panic signing from the Sharks.
