    It's mind bogling to think we may have been paying more for DWZ than the Eels are paying Blake Ferguson. Really makes you wonder.

    Mmm, what could Dave & Fletch gain by inferring payments to DWZ & Blake. Colour me sceptical.

    Love Dallin just jeez a 90kg fullback taking kamikaze runs at front rowers. Can't see his body being up first grade standard when he's around 29/30. Respect him for the way he plays and still like for the good stuff he did at the club but he wouldn't last long.

    CHN also going well for the Dogs. Beating Newy sure doesn't hurt us either.

    I was thinking watching this game how useful he'd be for us, with his ability to find a try. A big drop from him to Winterstein IMHO.

    Agreed. CHN was more than handy for us and would definitely find himself in our Top 17 still (at Winterstein’s expense).

    We couldn't afford him under the salary cap. He got a good offer from the dogs who are desperate to sign some good players.

    I thought that the rumour was that CHN was released because he was somehow mixed up in the video business?

    That was debunked pretty quickly.

    Bulldogs made him a 4 year offer for twice what he was on with us. Gus told him we couldn't match it and that he should take the offer and we would release him to do so.

    Gus didnt want to lose him. But he did so because he couldn't deny a player that sort of money or opportunity. Very similar situation to Tyrone Peachey.

    Totally different players and pays. Winterstein is strong in defence poor in attack.. CHN is the opposite

    Or maybe if others weren't on crazy deals both would still be here instead of plodders like Fuimaono

    CHN was bog average the second half of last year. Didn’t seem to care. Granted very good the first half of the year.

    Give me Winterstein at a quarter of the price for the role he plays.

    Give me Billy Burns or Hame Sele over Winterstein in any role.

    Off your head Mick. The Winter has been good for us. Hard to make a mark when your role is 14 mins of tackling & 66 mins of motivating the bench.

    He actually runs a good line just needs to learn to time his pass better to players in support.

    I feel sorry for Garth. It was never a good match really, that place is a graveyard for coaches and players.

    Gould once said Garth would have a job for life here, now that Gould is gone will the offer still stand?

    One of the tougher jobs in the NRL coaching the Titans. He will have to wait a while before he gets another shot. Assistant coach role if he can find one.
