    That’s a lot for a winger who only makes a few tackles a game. Missed winger tackles often lead to breaks

    One missed tackle per game is a lot?

    Waqa Blake & Tyrone Peachey appeared to be much bigger culprits in poor defending when looking at Penrith's defensive issues last year, and the stats support that.

    Everyone still tipping us for the spoon , I don’t get it we finished so strong when we gave the kids a run, when we ditched the so called big names. I’m thinking sneaky chance at 8th or 7th

    Yeah. I think thats about the best we can do. We just don't have the depth that other clubs have. If we get lucky with injuries then we could be in with a shout.

    The main thing is that we are building towards something this year. It's rare at team comes out of nowhere to win the comp. So it's all about building those combos and developing the players we have so hopefully next year we can really have a serious tilt at the comp.

    I did enjoy our freeflowing attack that started towards the end of last season, and even if we don't make the eight, it will be enjoyable to watch.

    I get the rebuild, but why buy Napa if you are trying to do that? Really don’t rate him

    You still need go forward, otherwise your developing players will just get smashed.

    It's because he's an Origin forward.

    You don't see Napa as the enforcer, teaching some of the others to get some mongrel in there game? We really just replaced like for like.

    We can argue that. Napa is just playing for a team, Klemmer on the other hand loved the dogs. He is another casualty of Des Hasler. I say that because Des brought Aaron Woods into they team (which he shouldn't have done, FFS, $800,000 of our cap), and then Dean Pay (rightly) let him go. Klemmer got the shits because his mate was released so he wanted to go as well. If Woods didn't come here in the first place, Klemmer would still be with us.

    Damn Des...

    The argument could be made that if Woods never came, Klemmer may have wanted to leave to join up with him too.

    Either way it's in the past - both Klemmer and Des. We look forward.

    Read the post. Klemmer wanted to play with his mate Woods - if Woods had never come to the Dogs they'd have still been mates regardless, so it stands to reason he may have wanted to leave at some point to play with him anyway.

    Then again the whole thing doesn't make sense when you consider he went to Newcastle, not Cronulla.

    Yeh but I may have been a monkeys uncle as well. Klemmer said he wanted to but in all the years he never made it happen and then didn’t chase woods to the sharks. Doesn’t add up

    Honestly Klemmer is over rated guys, he backs into the D and had slow as f**k play the balls. Solid forward but not needed. Des spent most of our cap on front rowers, wonder why we couldn’t score points. I believe Klemmer leaving was a positive

    This. He may have been 'one of our best' in recent years but we've been working from a fairly low base.
