    And I think they’re all great players but they don’t have any leaders among them. Most of the best forward packs have a Paul Gallen, Jesse Bromwich, JWH figure leading them around. I think we need to make a big play in the market for an experienced forward. I would personally look at James Graham. Yes he’s past his best years but he’d still give it his all and help push our case for Luke Thompson.

    I like Merrin but not at prop and he won't be coming for 20 mins when Murray is on the bench.

    Luke Thompson for me, think gold coast will go for him though.

    He's a good hard forward. In two or three years Tom will be our hit man.

    No I certainly wouldn't pay more than 500 for Martin. I can't forget his last few years at Penrith where in my opinion he bludged. But it's not up to me and no doubt Souths have better people to decide on that than me.

    You have got to be kidding, James Graham misses that many important tackles, gives away that many stupid penalties, is that slow.....just look at the 2014 grand final.....Christ your talkin crap, the only good thing about Graham is he's gotta be cheap cos on top of all his attributes I mentioned previous, how bloody old is he now? and how many injuries is he carrying.

    Trent Merrin, don't make me laugh, if you that desperate - go to England - that's your only hope, plenty of useless old crocks like the two mentioned over there.

    That's the best news I've heard so far. But still, we need a genuine prop as well. And an explosive fullback. Otherwise I think Souths will still be just off the pace.

    Some people will think I'm mad, but I'd have a crack at Shannon Boyd. We'd pick him up cheap and I'm certain Wayne Bennett would get the best out of him. He's a monster and I saw him destroy the Storm forwards single handedly . This bloke reminds me of a Big Mac Truck. And I don't even know why. :joy::joy::joy::joy::sweat_smile:

    Give Doueihi a chance at FB. IMO, he is a better FB than any of the realistic options for 2020 and AD hasn't had a preseason in the position yet.

    I like it but is he available?

    Are you talking about Joel Thompson? He's always wanted to come to Souths. Very good player in my opinion.

    Honestly, Adam D is a fill in player. Going through the learning process of FB takes some time. If we are serious about having a genuine crack at the title, I think we better get a fullback. Adam is still very young and he's a handy player to have at any club. But being a specialist fullback is a very tough job.

    That's why Beattie was posted down here. To get THE BIG SAY given to Queensland.

    There isn't anyone available for 2020 who is a better FB than AD showed though imo. Some of his returns from opposition attacking kicks were top draw, putting the opposition on the back foot.

    There's more to look at then one return. Dropped balls, missed tackles, getting shoved back in goal and thirty bad timings as well. I'm not saying he's a bad player. I'm saying if your fair dinkum about having a real shot at the title, Doueihi is not the fullback. He's a learner.
