    I was wrong about Kelly, he is shocking.

    Does anyone remember Kelly's last game for the Storm before he signed with us? The Storm were behind and needed a try to win and it was the last set of the game. Kelly got the ball and grubbered it straight to the opposition and they lost the game. It always stuck with me. I think alot of Eels fans confused lack of flair and attack with being "cool and composed".

    I wouldn't give up on Sandow yet. At least he's shown he can do something. If he's surrounded by a better team I still think he can be a valuable contributor.

    Our 6,7 and 9 have no idea, our attack is disjointed and has been since 2010. It's still Hayne or bust.

    Yep, i remember that. Alarm bells should have been ringing when he was 3rd choice half at the Storm and Bellamy being more than happy to release him.

    Sandow effort against the Titans centres was pathetic, he barely moved up in the line and just gave up.

    What the halves need to do is communicate and tell the players to stand a bit deeper instead of throwing these stupid flat passes.

    I think he is at least worth some thought. I think he would be a great half option with Norman, Hayne and Hoppa in the backline.

    Accoring to the NRL site Sandow missed 8 tackles today. Surely it is time to punt him after that.

    I've now also given up on Kelly.
    The great promise he showed in Storm's Toyota Cup has not carried over to NRL. :(
    With shoulder charge outlawed Sandow has almost nothing to offer in defense.
    We should be going all out for DCE if there is any glimmer of light coming through a door slightly ajar at Manly.
    Otherwise, we go after Sam Tomkins in the UK.

    The could offer DCE 2 million and I still doubt he will come here. He won't go anywhere its just his managers way of saying to Manly hurry up with the cash. Talking about it how do them pricks go Orford, Hodkinson then DCE!?!?!

    Even if we got DCE we'd find a way to make him sh!t.

    Then lets get Sam Tomkins for whatever it's going to cost to get him?

    At a lower price, we have enough junior forwards coming through to cover our cap requirements for a few years to come, just enough time to cover our Sandow and Kelly losses.

    2014 Spine

    1. Hayne
    6. Norman
    7. Tomkins
    9. Pritchard

    3 Will Hopoate
    4. Morgan

    This represents one of the best attacking formations in the NRL.

    Now to sort out the wingers?

    Tomkins is a fullback, not a halfback.

    Plus there's no way we could afford him considering the amount he's reported to want being close to $1,000,000 a year.

    Fortunately, Stuart has plenty of rounds left this year to now blood and condition all our best juniors for next year. With our juniors getting plenty of match practice this year, we may as well accept the spoon now and focus on a massive leap up the ladder next year.
    1979, St George had Bath's Babe's - next year we'll have Ricky's Kid's winning the premiership.

    He won't get 1 mill, more likely 600k or thereabouts, and he can play 7 or 6.

    His defence is just as bad as Sandow, you don't want someone like that defending in the line.
