    Our best chance was 2009 and we were literally cheated out of that premiership.

    There is a very good chance that we won't see another premiership in our lifetime.......

    No but I wouldn’t call any of them particularly intimidating either. With the possible exception of Tep, none of them are particularly physical.

    That seriously depresses me, and I think you're right.

    you would think we do everything not to make it a blowout, cause F/A could be crucial

    True - but the statement was about size.

    I totally agree that we need more enforcer types.

    Personally, I know he's getting older, but I would go hard for JWH.

    Unfortunately I feel at this stage that Neacore (can’t spell his name for shit) will be another Tepi. I’d be offloading him ASAP

    You would think so!

    But with this side....

    I have less confidence in the Eels than I do in Cricket Australia...

    Moses has been good, imo - but all he's been doing is tackling, thanks to his mates...

    Different body shape to what Manly,Storm and Roosters have. Let's be honest, we didn't really outmuscle the Tigers in the forwards. Just want to acknowledge that it's an issue and recruitment needs to address it quick smart.

    No doubt that's why Gurgess was targeted earlier.

    That spray Macquire gave the Tigers - give it to the Eels away from Parra.

    We do need more variety - but don't forget, we also have Stefano Utoikamanu, and Oregon Kaufusi.
