    Well they say everything has to come together regarding injuries and form and getting you're run of form right to win a premiership mate.
    I know exactly what you mean. A lot has to do with attitude and desire particularly in defence.

    Yeah that's a fair point mate. I personally think we are stronger purely through the rise of the youngsters. I think we have signed a gem in Gagai as well. While Goodwin was a wholehearted player he's not in the same class as Gagai. Gray spends the bulk of the time on the sidelines with injury so I think we improve there.

    On some other clubs I'm interested to see what sort of impact Cronk will have at the Roosters and how his loss affects the Storm.
    The Storm have lost some real quality in Harris, who I rate as the best secondrower in the game ,McLean who is one of the best wrestlers in the business and of course the great Cronk.
    Maloney is the perfect signing for Penrith IMO and I will be interested to see how that plays out.
    The Titans are near certainties for the spoon I reckon. West have lost their three best players and grabbed some good players but no real champion players and the knights have spent some big money on some solid firstgraders and a kings ransom for Ponga. I can't see either of these sides making the 8 and I'll be filthy if either finish higher than us.

    Seibold could prove to be as important as any signing we could've made. We were stale under Madge and needed the change. I expect to see a return to form from some players and apart from hooker and centre, feel we are at least as good as the majority of the comp.
    The past two seasons we should've been eyeing off the top 8 in August and i expect the same in 2018 as a minimum. It's on Seibold to get them there.

    That's concerning if true....

    That'd show his hunger is not there....



    I think you might be on the money have just looked at the player gallery'.......

    Everyone pretty much in here is talking him up and yet the commitment doesn't seem to be there... I am not surprised...

    You are on the money or close to Rsag with image 15 and 50....

    Well picked up mate.....


    Our coaching staff should rip the f**k into him.....

    Jennings is fat currently.......

    Stop living in a bubble......

    There are far too many it's and only a few of them will probably come together....

    Inbetween that other issues can arise.....

    You're joking right? In what way does that pic show Jennings not having commitment or being overweight?

    Maybe a bit of bulking but Jennings doesn't look fat to me.

    If Hunt or Talakai are anywhere within a sniff of the Souths backline, expect to finish closer to last than first in 2018 - both are dreadful.

    "Stale under Madge" could be a bit of an understatement Trav, I thought some of the players actually looked depressed under Madge.

    Me neither, it's only November plenty of training to come.
    I think Talakai's days of playing centre are over, his future is in the forwards.

    The players look in great condition and the trainer Devlin has said as much saying every player has come back in really good condition.

    He has singled out George for praise which is a great sign.

    I noticed Clark running alongside young Rodwell in one of the photos. there is no better mentor in the club IMO than Clark. I hope the talk of him going to England is just a rumour because I want Clark around our young blokes as they start their NRL careers. A great clubman and a wholehearted competitor that punches above his weight.

    Jennings doesn't look anywhere near 115kgs. He's a big boy no doubt , but Hunt looks bigger than him.

    Campbell Graham looks the goods. He has the eye of the tiger and the body of a giraffe. He's the young bloke that will really kick on I reckon.

    Tracey looks very fit and looks to be running unhindered and out in front of the pack.

    Big Johnston looks up to speed.

    Burns looks a bit fuller in the face . I don't know if that's the natural ageing process or he's bulked up a bit. I like Burns and it would be good to see how he goes in the centres rather than the wing. He was a prolific tryscorer playing centre for Penrith 20s.

    The squad will look even stronger when Tom, Sam, GI, Farah, Musgrove Gagai and Doueihi come back to training.
    I'm super excited.

    I'm a massive wrap on Talakai and I think he ill be in our top 19 and possibly a bench forward. Personally I have him in the 17 , but I think Tony will go a different way.

    The competition for spots in the pack should ensure everyone is on their game.

    Mate I've got faith in the lads to come up with the goods. There will be 15 other clubs just as hungry to go out and chase the same thing.

    I have no doubt in my mind that we have the talent in the squad side and the depth to play finals footy. I also believe that if we have a good run with injury and keep our top side intact we have the team to challenge for the top 4. Absolutely no doubt in my mind.

    The new coach will bring a freshness that was probably needed. If the boys want it badly enough they have the talent to achieve it.

    I think it's just the way his singlet is positioned in that shot. I haven't looked at other pics though, but from the one you mentioned before you can't really tell.

    Plus if there's one part of the season where players are overweight it's now.

    Give the guy a break fellas,he's probably been kicking back enjoying some family feasts watching the Tongan side running around.
    Plenty of time to fit into his Bears guernsey!
