    Regardless of how many tackles the game is reduced to , you can bet your last penny that Melbourne will come up with some sort of slowing down tactic to take it back to the dark ages .

    Don't give up on LAM.
    But Tapau would be great but not cheap

    the trouble is if we did get tapau it may upset the cooks.

    The focus on size has also made league a much more boring game. Too much bash and barge at the expense of skill.

    Marty Taupau ? I believe that we may be needing 1 or 2 of these to have any hope .

    And Payne Haas would still be up the top of my shopping list along with Pangai and Taupau.

    The Warriors have a history of signing top players with big pay packets to match , but a few appear to take some time to settle into their new club .

    Some languish in the lower grades before finally finding their feet , whereas some even fall by the wayside not to be heard of again .

    I would hate that to happen to Leeson as he would truly be of value to any team , most preferably at the Dragons .

    Ok, laugh if you like, but most likely going to the Roosters if he leaves the Sea Eagles.

    Nothing to laugh about that. There is already paper talk that Easts are in the hunt for Taupau.

    Is that paper bags full of cash talk?

    But seriously, two $1 million plus players, SOO captain, International front rower, Keary didn’t leave Souths for nothing, SOO players in the back line.
    If the NRL let Easts sign another player on 600-800 they mays as well just admit the cap doesn’t apply to them.

    Exactly , of course that is where he will go , hence the meaning of the large bags overflowing with money . That is the only way that the Dragons could compete with a club such as the Roosters . It is no laughing matter , but that is the way the ' cap ' works for some .

    Jeez folks, don't forget they still have cap left over from Russell Fairfax and Artie Beetson retiring not to mention Sonny Bill leaving. Man everyone gives the Roosters such a hard time when they are obviously prudent money managers... lol....

    The Roosters need to run the Government and release a budget, they will get us in surplus quick smart...

    They buy everyone and can’t win a comp. the only way they will do this is to take ownership in every club. The rort the system anyway
