So are Lomax, Host and Lawrie, but don’t be surprised......
Well I hope he finds happiness at his 4th club in 4 years.
Genius coaches strategy
Great, let him go.
We need winners, not mediocres
The cooling off period no longer exists, was scrapped as part of last CBA.
If Sele hasn't signed as yet, maybe he is considering a counter offer from the Dragons, hence his almost sudden inclusion in the 21 team list this week. Maybe dangling the carrot so to speak
I am not convinced about Lawrie. The best I can see him becoming is a bench prop/lock.
You do realize that even if we kept both Lui and Havilli you'd be saying the exact same thing, right?
Lui is a journeyman from the Brisbane Broncos, whilst Havilli is also a journeyman from the Warriors. Not exactly extremely talented juniors that the Dragons held back from playing first grade.
Both of them playing first grade would block the pathways of: Host, Sele, Leilua, Lawrie, Kerr and Robson.
But your missing my point. The fact is they are playing first grade, a position our juniors will look at and say why aren't I, I guess I will have to go somewhere else to get my chance.
Couldn’t agree more.
No, just elevated into 21 after the injury to Vaughan. (Lawrie goes into 17, Sele into 21). Plus Host & MacDonald included in extended squad returning from injury ( in place of Allgood & Herbert)
hope theres no cooling off period when they sack McGREGOR .O D your dreaming again
To be fair none of our young forwards barring Host were ready for a starting spot at the start of the year (Host's had a bad run of injuries this year)
Its our backs that Mary for some reason refuses to blood anyone unless he's absolutely forced too.
Is anyone aware if Ethan Lowe is off-contract or available? Could he be looking to move?
We need another experienced forward to my mind. He can play anywhere in the back row, goal kick and a change may get him back to where he was a few years ago.
"You could throw Cook into that group as well as even Bird."
What about Hastings?
i thought this the other day. Had he been injured or is he just well down the pecking order at an ordinary cowboys side? Was in origin frame for a while, shame hes not a prop which i think is priority
I don’t know if it’s necessarily a prop but definitely someone that can play in the middle.
There are some decisions to be made about players we already have. TSims, KSims, Host, Frizell are all players that can play on an edge and in the middle. De Belin starts to look like a prop, if the interchange reduces, as I would be looking for a different player to play 13. Lawrie has made good strides in the last two years. Eddie Blacker I haven’t seen but is rated. I wouldn’t dismiss Kerr despite issues. Mason I’m not sure about.
Other props. Information on available players is questionable. Tatola re-signed I believe. Terepo was not off contract when I mentioned him. It’s pot luck guessing. On the young side there is Max King, Jai Whitbread from the Titans. Older is Mark Nicholls Souths. Sam Hoare Cowboys. But no guarantee they are available.
I'll tell you what after watching K.Sims tonight im feeling less hesitant about his signing. He's making good yards and has scored 3 trys in two weeks running good hard lines if his lateral movement is any good he's probably got the skill to play 2nd row also. So you are right there is some variety there. Like you say though it is slim pickings was there still talk about that rabbits prop we tried to get pre june 30? Musgrove i think. He looks a good type too
Korbin was played as a 13 early on and then playing in Qld they played him on the right edge. Since moving more to prop, he has lost a little mobility.
Musgrove is contracted nonetheless.
