What two ex Wests Tigers stars playing in their football prime, would you pick to add to our current squad, that would transform us into a top 8 side.
My two would be:
1. Gareth Ellis

2. Taniela Tuiaki

Scott Prince and Benji Marshal.
Yep I concur, those two together would be awesome.
It's obvious that I'm trying to highlight that a couple of players like what's already been thrown up can completely change a club's win/loss ratio.
We would have won at least those tight games this year with Scotty and Benji playing together and avoided the spoon.

Keven Yow Yeh & Noel Kelly

Speed and power.
Those two might even make a combined Balmain/Western Suburbs Hall of Fame squad which could be another thread to start. Knowing a bit of your history TM, I'm guessing you've met big Noel Kelly?
Norm introduced me to him at a fund raiser for flood victims in Brisbane years back and he is such a nice guy, gentlemanly even but on the field he was a tough bookend eh.
Throw up another 2 players TM, it's for ex Wests Tigers players 👍

Agree, you only got to look at other clubs:

Manly with Turbo
Knights with Ponga
Souths with Latrell

Just a few mentions and yes other players in there clubs help, but it is noticeable how a team performs with or without their gun players.

Thats why I think guys like Bula and Api will help us build a confident team around them. Probably won’t happen by next season though.

Mat Head and Chris Lawrence. A proven general to lead us around the park and a superstar speed demon to be the strike centre the club is crying out for.
