    I say no. Big Big no.

    Providing we get Foran, we need to rid ourselves of Sandow who is too cold than hot.

    We looked so much better tonight when he was off the field.

    A combo of foran and norman is in my opinion a rock hard defensive combo that teams would dread to target and fear in attack.

    I love watching Sandow, but he is not worth the cap space, nor the headache he is worth.

    Your thoughts my good friends?????

    IMO we have Norman who could become a very good player.He has only just turned 24 and in his second year at 5/8. The improvement from last year is outstanding. And he will only get better. Sandow we know what we are going to get. Rocks or diamonds.He will always be a liability in defense, his passing game isn't crisp and he cant control a game.Too many brain snaps. Sure he is great too watch when things are going well and has a nice long kick on him.
    Corey can also play fullback if needed and just looks to have more class. I can imagine big Pauli Pauli running off him and Forans balls

    I think Sandow gives us that extra dimension in attack. He seems to have improved his defense in the off season and is much quicker.

    Going on tonights performance, Norman can have a great partnership with Foran. But one brilliant performance from Norman is as good as Sandow's hot and cold - if he can do it more often then I would be happy to let Sandow out the door.

    Yes, he was injured today and all he wanted to do is return. He was clearly struggle with his injury when he returned. Yeah his chip kick was not good, but we were down by 8 and needed something special at that moment. If he wasn't injured chances are it comes of.

    I actually thought peats/Issac struggle tonight and really needed to offer a bit more considering the injury toll

    Who plays on the right out of Norman and Foran? They both have a beautiful right to left pass and I'm not sure if either of them has ever played first grade on the right.

    I dont think we can have a half on the right side of the field who cannot pass left to right.

    norman and sandow are as bad/good as eachother - sandow has a higher ceiling, but also a lower floor (yes I know he is little) - norman can be good but can be just as ineffective as sandow

    The halves didn't cost us the game tonight. Gee we had Paulo playing halfback for 30 mins.

    Every half in the game can pass well to both sides. What matters is which foot they kick with. Norman is a left footer so he stays on the left. Foran to the right.

    Norman played very well under the circumstances tonight. I think we keep sandow if he either stays not he money he is on or takes a pay cut

    Sandow cannot pass the ball from left to right further than 7-8 metres, unless he stops, turns his back and passes from right to left
