    We could start a poll on who will be fullback next year?

    Kurt Mann - but we need to sign him up first - don't know what Club is waiting for
    He is great Utility and can be backup as FB if Duffy is not ready or can't take the leap to FG.
    Mitchell would be good signing though but doubt that would occur. Maybe get him for half of what Dugan wants !!!

    Yep
    We are now 6 & 4 and still without a couple of key players plus SOO coming up where we may lose 2 players there as well.
    Our F & A is slowly being whittled back so do we bight the bullet and have a crack at blooding the young guns now or do we hold out like we did in 2015 trying to limp into the semis?
    For mine "It's Time" and we should be pensioning Nighty, never picking KFFL, Marketo and the likes and making sure that we look at combinations and not playing just 1 young un at a time.
    Would rather lose some games getting a look into the future than trying to patch enough wins to fall into 8th spot.

    I'm sorry but that would require a coach with balls and a game plan.
    We all know we have neither but you do make a valid point.

    Only coaches like Bennett and alike would have the backbone to blood several new players at once, knowing that the players would make a go of it.

    The forwards we've got from them have been great. Backs, not so much.

    If we get sick of Dugan threads, we can always start a new Bird thread. They've been a rarity.

    It's time alright, but our coach and his apprentices haven't got the foresight or fortitude.
    As I recall, last year when we travelled to NZ their coach sacked several FG players for disciplinary reasons and they kicked our bums.
    That's risk v reward in a nutshell.

    Problem is, Mary never learns from his mistakes. It is looking much like 2015 all over again.

    Can we have a thread for each nrl player? Doesn't seem to be enough
