    If Hasler couldn't get the best out of Lichaa good luck with Taylor doing it.

    I agree with most, why was Cherrington let go...I can only assume he was regarded as an attacking hooker.

    I am trying to think of a top side that doesn't have an attacking hooker. I've know it for a long time that Taylor is a fool but he isn't doing anything to prove otherwise.

    Ugh, haven't we just signed Matt McIlwrick as well? So we'll have four hookers in the Top 25 next year. Well done :rolleyes:

    Rumour from the Mole - Sirro (Curtis) to Manly.

    Didn't Taylor want to get rid of Farah because he claimed he was starving Moses & Brooks of ball? I recall a Doggies finals game where Mbye was screaming at Lichaa for hogging the ball and doing nothing with it. Does this suggest that Ballin is on the way out, or does Taylor want to get back to having three hookers on the bench?

    Didn't we at some point last year have four hookers out of the loop at once (when Farah was still being selected?)

    Kev has been on the market since last year.

    Manly even thought Uate was better than Kev.

    That speaks volumes

    Reading the article gives a very different impression than the post from Perth Tiger.

    I rate Kev. He has been great for us.

    He's about an 8/10 in attack, 1/10 in defence.

    They would love his attack in superleague and the fact that he is defensivley useless would be overlooked.Lets hope it happens

    McIlwrick isn't on a top 25 contract

    We needed a backup hooker. We lost Farah, Halatau and Cherrington.

    By all reports Ballin is coming along well with his knee and there's obviously Liddle. McIlwrick will be the nsw cup hooker and come up if needed.

    I don't believe lichha is coming. The word always was that the dogs would get rid of him if they could get for an, which they haven't.

    WTs rate JL very highly, they see him as our long term hooker. He'll work well with Ballin next year.

    I think our season would have gone very differently if Ballin was fully fit

    NYC center Ryland Jacobs joins the extended full time squad for next year. Keebra park boy. I like him. Does plenty of work coming out of our end and always looked sound defensively. Certainly not a full time NRL center but could be one who comes on and surprises. Wouldn't be any worse then Milone.

    If we could lose Rankin and pick up a proper goal kicking winger with a bit of toe, we'd have actually completed so decent recruitment for a bloody change.

    Pretty sure we will be. Who the f**k re-signed him after we told him he was free to go? And why on a three year deal?

    f**king amateurs.

    Pretty sure his contract had an option in his favour so he exercised it to make sure he had a guaranteed income for the next couple of years...
