So Dykes will fill in for who? I don’t think we have the guts to get rid of BB. So Dykes Won’t get much NRL time.
I’m assuming he’ll start the year for the Jets since he hasn’t played for a bit but maybe not. I can see him in the 14 jersey, and since Fitz is fine giving Moylan that spot then Dykes who can actually play multiple positions would work well and get him game time.

Does anyone actually know if dykes can tackle? Be weird to replace a tackle shy back with about her one

I think something that has been somewhat overlooked this year was the injuries we had... compared to Broncos, Panthers etc...

Seemed like our forwards played musical chairs on the injury bench for the whole year. Toby, Royce, Dale, BHU, Wilton. Did we have any games where they were all available?

Season ending hamstring injury 6 weeks out from finals to arguably our biggest attacking x factor type player in Kennedy.

We were still not great on the whole... but that constant forward injury list must have made it hard to build any forward dominance and cohesiveness.
All those forwards you named put no fear into anyone, even if played everygame.
None of them deliver a hit that turns the game.
Though all have a drop ball, or a nice flop penalty in them

Is Ennis off to the Dragons with Flanno.
If case hire Toovey, his job work with Trindall, show him how to be a hooker he has the ability, he hurts when tackles, short kicking game, he has a go.
You can start with McInness then have Tricky come on.
Jumping out to do a 40/20.
Instead of what happens now Tinkerbell waving fairy dust hoping for some miracle.
And picking the wrong play more often.
Our hookers would be McInness, Trindall and Healey coming through.
Brailey flog him off I don't care where, see if we can con someone give us a back up half, or a prop who can hit

I like this cept these three are too small . Let’s go with a larger player who can hit hard.

Iv got Dykes having first crack a 6, has a big kick, one of the best passing games around, lighting feet and speed, defence is not horrible but at 6’2 and bulking out im willing to bet after 10-15 games will be extremely solid.
If he reaches potential will be a star

What a time to be a sharks fan. Still no premiership, but the best times I’ve had down there in front of the Summertime bar cheering and jeering during the late 90s and into 2000
Adam Dykes was much maligned, would be a local hero in this current mob. Hopefully Junior can bring back some good times

We need to add a journeyman half to the squad to many inexperienced half’s, even if the can’t crack first grade having them around training is what’s needed. Should be swapping Moylan out for one.

Panthers do this very well one year deal, seem to rotate them through

I don't want the journey man half at the cows

Hutchison's signed with the Dogs, hasn't he?
It's all in keeping with their Seinfeldian, Statue of Liberty inscription inspired approach to recruitment:

‘Give us the unhappy, the sad, the slow, the ugly, people that can't drive, that they have trouble merging, if they can't stay in their lane, if they don't signal, they can't parallel park, if they're sneezing, if they're stuffed up, if they're clogged, if they have bad penmanship, don't return calls, if they have dandruff, food between their teeth, if they have bad credit, if they have no credit, missed a spot shaving, in other words any dysfunctional, defective slob that you can somehow cattle-prod onto a wagon, send them over, we want 'em.'”

Dunno, just pulled that list of xerotackle and I don't have much faith in that site TBH.

Didn't even notice Adam Clune on that list and he'd fit the bill as well. Was going better than Hastings in the latter part of 2023.

Clunes was terrible against the Warriors last night. Just no.
