LMAO we all feel sorry for him now that his joining st George haha
Pay me a million for 6 months work and you can bag me or call me whatever you like.
Hunt is a great buy however, we need a 6 and 1 to go with him. Mary needs to give prospective five-eighths a go now. Field, Dufty and Mann are the obvious players that should be given time at five-eighth this year. We already know what Widdop can do at five-eighth, so maybe its time to move him to 7 or to 1.
I'm of the opinion we will lose both Dugan and Widdop at the end of this season, if not before June 30, so 2017 needs to be a year of settling on a team for 2018 when Hunt arrives in 2018.
Don't forget Drew Hutchison
...can I call you Puppy Goo-Goo?
I haven't forgotten Hutch however, he will have to compete with others for the 6 job. I doubt we could hold Field, Dufty, Mann and Hutch if we signed Bird. Hutch and Mann are off contract at the end of 2017.
Broncos fans will be over critical of him purely because they are bitter over him leaving. Previously quality players never left the thoroughbreds.
It's obvious that we see Milford as the brighter prospect, can't keep them all (especially when other clubs get desperate)
That's probably true. Unlike Wayne to make such an error in judgement.
Yet to be proven that he has in fact made an error.
In our busted system Hunt could hit rock bottom pretty easily.
Imagine Hunt comes, Widdop, Milne, Mann aren't there and Dufty leaves sooner rather than later (based on Field to FB talk by Millward), Leilua never hits the mark in 1st grade and we extend Nighty.
Hunt with Lafai, Aitken, Nighty outside him and Marketo or Matthews off the bench, yep a real winning combo that is.
The signing of Hunt is irrelevant until the new coach is announced. We need to get back to when we were in it to win it. The club has begun to die.
OT throw that crystal ball of yours out as you've just depressed me.
Especially after all the whispers of L plate being signed.
Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow and it is all just a bad dream.
Remember even if your depressed there will be enough shit written and predicted in here to at least put a smile on your face some of the time.
The fact marketo hasnt played first grade yet should give us all a small glimmer of hope lol
Mathews and Marketo getting resigned wouldnt bother me personally.
They will be depth and not bad players for depth.
Lafai, Nighty, and Mcrone.... them 3 should be sent packing.
They will not be any good, even as depth they will be a waste of money.
Widdop and Dugan intrigue me.
Iv lost faith in Widdop... out of the 2 id prefer Dugan.
But then... i think with Hunt here next year, Widdop and Hunt could be lethal.
But, Dugan playing from the back with less pressure as Hunt can and will direct the play, Dugan will go to another level hopefully.
But then, with widdop and Hunt in the halves, imagine adding J. Field to chime in from FB...
Thats got points written all over it...
But then again... if Mary is still coach, well that says it all doesnt it.
would Hunts knocking the ball toward Melbourns winning try count for his Try assists LOL
Hunt said one thing that he wanted when signing w the Dragons was a huge forward pack ! As soon as he knew the forward pack he was comfortable enough to sign.. I think we will sign one more top class big prop or back rower that's my tip along w a big backline player.. I expect WIDDOP will stay to form the Dragons most lethal scrum base since Barrett/Mundine..
Widdop is asking big bucks and we really can't rely on him. I'd go for the following in order of preference:
Field out with a hamstring, Dufty looking ok in with Illawarra but I doubt he will be ready for first grade next year. He looks very small but tries his heart out.
I dunno about Moses. For every try he scores or sets up, he lets two or three in. He's a freak with the ball but a liability without it.
Look at how negative we have become, Bloody clubs fault, RUN BY A BUNCH CLOWNS.
