    Yep sigh the pommy he would pair up well with Vaughn and work well with Gaz. He would also mentor some of our rising star forwards. His presence would be valuable.

    The dogs are over cap and need to shift players klezmer is the man that I would be pushing to get..he has previously asked for a release and would add size and mongrel to our pack..imagine him Vaughan jdb lam frizz thomo and sims .. What a pack add quality halves to that..or even woods if they can't keep him..klemmer has youth on his side too

    I agree with everything you said about Klemmer, but Woods? Hell no. He is absolutely thieving a living by being the only half decent forward in a reserve grade-quality pack. When he goes to the Bulldogs, he'll be exposed big time.

    Don't like Graham at all his form has been way down this year. He is part of the Dogs downfall. Graham get a big no from me.That why the Dogs are off loading him.He just doesn't make a dent in the defence anymore. He's past it..

    Yep agree with Graham, for 1 or 2 years.

    I'd grab either RCG or Latu for the long term and Graham for the short term. We need a starting prop to help Vaughan out, he is a fierce competitor, hates losing and would be great for a couple of years until Lawrie/Kerr are ready. He has the attitude we need.

    RCG would be a very good signing.

    Would definetly take Klemmer if the price was right and he was available. He is an animal.
    Frizzel captain, leading a formidable forward pack.

    Graham has had neck surgery and not been the same since. Tallis went down the same path, awesome until he had the neck surgery. If you can get Graham cheap he would be good but I am sure he would cost some $$. Dogs will foot some of his dollars for 2018 but not after that.

    I think the Bulldogs would let him go for $600,000 -$700,000. But then would you rather buy Adam Blair for $700,000
    I would rather Graham over Blair for his leadership and hunger to win

    Don't want Graham, would rather have gangrene than Blair.

    Graham is way past his used by date, he is better off going to Newcastle, we don't need washed up dog players, I rather go shopping in Canberra for some quality forwards.

    Graham does not bend the line, he is IMO a spent force. Rather be patient and wait to see who becomes available, if not keep rotating younger guys Lawrie and Kerr possibly.

    Problem with graham will be price. He will subsidised for one year then he sky rockets in price. A 2 year deal could work.

    Take him, and by the time he is done in 1-2 years, guys like Kerr and Lawrie are ready to be starting week in week out.

    We would be paying half of his salary, which would be a great get - wouldn't take him for his whole salary.

    Klemmer would be great but he only re-signed earlier this year and his best mate Woods is joining the club - no chance for us

    I'm a fan of the pom, but doesn't he have big problems with concussions? This late into his career I think he'd be more a risk than reward. Also think we need a big f**k off prop to break the advantage line over a workhorse.
    No for me.
