    Who would know. Nikorima is playing some good footy atm and is probably cost effective. On the other hand I think we made a good investment in Hunt.

    I only in my 5th year of supercoach. I wasn't interested in it for many years, but a mate told me to join up and play. I did so, without much enthusiasm. The first year was a bit of a learning curve for me, I ended up coming seventeen thousand and something out of around 120 000. I have been hooked ever since. The second year I came 2300 and something. This year I am currently sixteen hundred and something. I dropped about 1100 and something places last week. I recommend everyone on here to give it a go. Next year, I will start a St George League for participants from this forum. I have to come in the top 10% for it to a pass mark for me.

    Okay, so we’ve established that you believe you are a better coach than Bennett.. even in his prime..

    If you have got a full team of rep players, then you should be winning the comp at least every second year.

    We never had a full team of rep players when Brown was coaching us. We did have one of the best rosters in the comp in 04, 05 and 06, but how many games did we ever have our full complement of top players on the field. I know that it was very few. We had Gasnier, Barrett, Cooper, Timmins, Bailey, Ryles and Creagh who were rep players or went onto become rep players. I think Dean Young got to play one origin game off the bench too. That would make 8 rep players.

    Bennett had a full team of rep players when he won comps at Brisbane in his first 18 years of coaching them. They even had more than a full team of rep players some years.

    There’s more caveats in there than a Donald Trump promise..

    I don't think so, he'd be too old by then.

    MacGregor admits he never had a plan B after accepting an extension of his contract for another 20 years

    His plan B is to make excuses while saying “I’m not making excuses”

    I included Creagh and Young as they went onto become rep players later in their careers, although I think Young only played one game off the bench. I forgot about Kite.

    Ben Hornby was there as well. If only they picked him when instead of dud Hodgson. They would have saved a lot of embarrassment for NSW.

    Key moment was losing Mat Head against Nth Qld. Hornby was still a better fullback than halfback. Not the halfback he became later. Greenshields wasn’t up to the big games.

    Brent Kite was chosen early in order to extract him from the club. Would have been a key figure in 2005 and 2006 with the way the rules shifted and his mobility.

    I just had a look on Zero Tackle at the players off contract next season and there doesn't appear to be much good talent still on offer. Of what is still on offer I would be interested in us signing Pangai Junior, Oates, B Morris and Hetherington. Oldfield could offer us a bit of speed on the wing, but I am not completely sold on him.

    We should already be looking at who is off contract at the end of 2019. Players I have identified who would be on my shpping list are Rapana, Kikau (if we signed Kikau, I would then move Frizell to prop), D Walker, Tom Wright, Asofa Solomona, Munster, Hess (to play prop), Sam Burgess, George Burgess, Tom Burgess.

    PS I doubt that we will sign any of the players that I mentioned in this post, besides maybe B Morris, but he will probably end up at Easts. Oldfield would be another that we could end up with.
