    Now that Manly and Sharks have been spectacularly eliminated I'm strugling with any interest in the rest, just don't care much. Amazes me how there's been total silence from our CEO and Chairman, no messages to members and fans, nothing.

    So my sights are on 2018, we're stuck with Mary and his assistants, so what is there to look forward to?

    Our first game against the bullgrubs next year with JG in the red v, ripping into his mates or will he be injured?

    First game against Tigpies, Packer, Milne and dare I say it Bunji.

    First game against Scumulla, with their new world class elite FB or will he be injured?

    More Kogarah games.

    No chance of McCrone playing.

    Anything else?

    Looking forward to see how we will go with a world-class 7 in hunt.
    Looking forward to Graham playing with the passion that he played with for the dogs.
    And I hope that i will see the debut of zac lomaz in the nrl.

    Not so much looking forward to but hoping for:
    The forwards hard work being finished off by the backs
    Proper use of the bench
    A win against the Dogs, Storm, Broncos
    Breakout seasons for Dufty & Aitken
    Playing in the finals

    Not expecting much next year. Yes the forward pack may marginally improve, yes we will have a competent halfback, but until we get some dynamic backs and/or a decent backline coach, I reckon we will probably be playing the same old stodgy football.

    I am looking forward to super hero round. I might get a new Avatar.

    Seeing more youngsters get a run.
    I mean there always seems to be room on our bench.
    All McGregor has to do is use all four players for a change.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Ben hunt attack the line with frizell or sims running off his hip.

    He used to have an amazing combo with thaiday, would be great to see him recreate that on our right edge.

    Oh. And I'm looking forward to the whinging from sharks fans when they realise that Dugan isn't the messiah.

    I will be looking forward to seeing if we actually use the trials for their intended purpose namely seeing who can do what and what combinations we can form.
    I will be looking forward to seeing if the CS will be the litmus test for our season as it has for the past 2 years.
    Last but not least I will be looking forward to seeing if we have actually learned any real lessons or whether it will just be another clusterf**k of a season.

    Would hope that the transition of our juniors is done properly.
    Return to our traditional jerseys with the big red V.
    Play our home games at WIN and Kogarah
    The bench is handled better next season.
    Lastly sack McIdiot and Doust

    The announcement that McGregor has been relieved of his position...nothing else matter.

    If not, it'll be the "same ol, same ol" as we've seen since 2012.

    Looking forward to seeing how/if Dufty kicks on. I think the ability is there but still a work in progress. Mostly looking forward to seeing how we go with Hunt steering us around the field and Graham leading our pack.

    I am looking forward to the ashes series and the NY test in Sydney. Id love to give it to those poms again. Also the big bash is a bit of fun, hopefully they don't change the format too much, its spot on now.

    I agree with Jonesy.

    I am looking forward to us finally having a top line halfback. I am also looking forward to seeing Widdop play beside a top halfback.

    I am looking forward to seeing how Dufty can progress. I think he is a very exciting prospect.

    I am looking forward to the addition of Graham.

    I am looking forward to seeing Lomax make his debut.

    I am looking forward to seeing if Host and or Leilua can develop and become regulars in our 17, even in our starting 13.

    I am looking forward to seeing Jack Debelin and Frizzell become 2 of the better forwards in the comp and hope that they along with Vaughan can all play for NSW next year.

    I am looking forward to see if the likes of Marsters, Field, Garrick and Herbert can play first grade next year.
