    Did you say we’re signing Tyson Frizell? Good scoop!

    it's important that we maintain the improvement from this season and build on it not slide backwards again

    we finished 4th in 2017 and were bundled out of the finals in straight sets then in 2018 we got the spoon!

    I highly doubt he would be our 2nd or 3rd halfback..

    If Moses goes down Drown would shift to half and Gutho to 5/8.. Then there is always Taka..

    Josh Jackson is a workhorse.
    I dont think we could go wrong if we replace Mau with either
    Jackson
    Frizzel
    Fifita
    Matterson

    Shit that's a fair bit of weight.

    Spud is a legend. Our young forwards could learn a thing or 2.

    I wouldn't want Jackson for his playing ability. He's alright at that but his real value is his leadership. Not that we could get him anyway.

    He wouldn't want to leave the Bulldogs even if gets offered double.

    I certainly like another workhorse backrower, question is are there any good ones off contract?

    The spread the ball thing is a massive asset but I think we need to be a little more selective next year. Play direct in the early parts of sets. Especially against the better teams that can easily slide against early ball movement.

    I'd also spend a lot of time working on last play options in the opposition 20. Short kicks, bombs, set plays. We aren't good when we are in try scoring positions. I haven't checked the stats but we seem to score a lot more tries from the middle of the field. When we get close to the line we shit the bed more than the better teams do.

    Some of the previous calls re: a second row replacement are spot on. Frizzell or Jackson would both add a lot given the Chairman's departure. Not sure of their availability.

    I liked our 9s jersey. Wish it was our main one.

    I'm with you...

    That's what I care about most.

    I honestly could not get pumped watching them the past 2 seasons wearing that jersey

    Is it true membership prices are jumping up once again for next year?
