    Rumoured Targets 3

    That’s my point- with our defence, it doesn’t matter how good our wingers are at kick returns. The second they catch the ball they’re going to be swamped. If we can somehow force the opposition to kick from deep in their own half, than Young and Marzhew will be worth their weight in gold.

    Big wingers are good, but useless if the opposition are putting up bombs in our half and they are getting gang tackled as soon as they catch the ball.

    Why are you worrying about his defence? Just put him outside of Gagai and… nevermind.

    I’m happy Klemmer is gone, but wish him well. Even when he was consistently running 150m+ a game, he was making very little impact and we were struggling to win. His money can have much more impact elsewhere.

    I thought Ponga actually did put his body on the line in defence for the two games he played after Origin 3. There was a noticeable difference in attitude.

    What recent juniors have we lost or not identified? The bigger problem is our inability to develop them to NRL standard.

    2023 off season

    2023 off season

    It’s sad that our fan engagement is lower than teams like Canberra, Tigers, Manly, Sharks, Canterbury. We have very healthy home crowds considering our lowly position on the ladder most years, but we are the worst rated club in the NRL for number of fans. It almost feels like a Trump rally-...

    2023 off season

    Seems like a lifetime ago we were given the honour of playing the first ever sporting event at Stadium Australia against Manly in front of 104,000 fans in the opening round of the 1999 season.

    Why wasn’t the Grant knock on looked at?!

    If Bateman can negotiate an early release for 2023, I can’t see why KPP can’t as well.

    Crossland looks to be on the outer. Was meant to be resigned, but all has gone very quiet.

    I think he’ll be back playing centre in not too long- too good to be kept out on the wing.

    Rumoured Targets 3

    The problem I have with Klemmer is that he’s part of a $2m+ chunk of our salary cap being spent on props. Couldn’t really care less if it is him or one of the Saifitis being moved on, but having all 3 on big dollars throws our entire salary cap out of whack. And with Hasler getting the sack, a...
