    Nup, still need better options from 2-5, what we have on our roster at the moment is not to NRL standard, being confirmed by current RLC.

    Comment above is All due respect to Flo though. We won't come close to winning a comp with another power game attitude with Mary as coach and piss poor 2-5 jumpers

    Agree but can our slow outside backs ice the games for us when the forwards & our halves create the opportunities for them.

    No need for backs. Sailor, Masters, Field and Lomax. Not good up an comers but outstanding ones. Would probably make as big an impact as Nic Cotric did at Raiders. Just a matter of giving them a go.4 potential rookie of the season candidates. Throw in Dufty.

    In 5-6 years time, Saints could have a potential backline of all juniors like they did with Hornby,Cooper,Gasnier,Morris and God I mean Nighty. Would love to see that happen. Winning the GF in 2010 with a team that consisted of mostly Dragons juniors was great to watch and a fantastic achievement.

    Problem is the Saints have the players but not the man to get them the glory in Mary. I am so confident that with a coach like Maguire/Demitriou and the players they have, they will win a few comps and now is the best time because of the currentl quality of juniors coming through. Seriously if Mary can't do this in 4 years he never will. Surely this will be his last contact if he does not make top 4 minimum.

    Great post! Hit the nail on the head.
    We are just treading water with McGregor at the helm.
    We should be blooding youngsters at every opportunity but that means we need the right mentor to bring them through and realize their potential.
    If we are serious about winning premierships we need a coach capable of getting us there.

    With Widdop and Grahem now in the side maybe with an English connection he might come here.

    Yeah the English connection will play a big part, but the question remains is the club actually after him or made any contact at all. Really don’t know what the club is thinking in terms of what kind of player they want to fill the final squad positions with. Personally I’d love him at the club, and is the type of power game player that suits Mary’s game plan. Fingers crossed.

    I like how he hit in defence as well.
    He's apparently 112kg.

    A few sources claiming that we are firming as strong favourites to land Walmsley for 2018.

    When will we see this resolved? I guess it's pending what happens with Thompson?

    Irrespective , the club has played the waiting game and now and up to xmas is the time to watch the cards fall in place. The top 30 threw me a bit until i found out it was a moving list.
