    Yes, that could entirely be the case.

    Having said that indirect source, thru may son, is almost always 99% spot on, so when he says to my son he has a no mail on any confirmed signings I would take that as a given.

    There is no doubt plenty in the works, there has to be, given how many spots we have to fill, but the rumours around Dylan Walker, JWH and Co I would tread wearily because I don/t think they are anywhere near done deals.

    I get the cynicism, but the fact they recruited a hooker before anyone else says they at least identified a major weakness.

    We will sign the 2020 equivalents of Clint Newton, Chris Armit and Cameron Ciraldo.

    I think this side probably needs a more dynamic/athletic centre in order to be effective but I reckon Whare could still be very effective in the right team. Outside of losing a bit of pace, we just don’t give him the chance to use his biggest asset in his passing. Not many centres better at putting their winger away. Same with Mansour and finishing. They’re limited but we make em look much worse than they are.

    And some smart football minds involved. I'd back Brandy over most people doing recruiting elsewhere

    So what is Brandy's coaching and recruitment record? You wouldn't know would you...

    He was a great player, but that doesn't necessarily translate to coaching and/or recruitment.

    I'd say as the current nsw advisor, plus able to see most games thru commentating, he has good track record to at least advise on recruitment, i'd take his word for penriths wellbeing for the club over anyone else.

    .
    Whare bombed a few opportunities in 2019 to put his winger away. Half a decade ago he was arguably the best in the competition at it.

    But in the past 4 seasons he has played 59 games for 9 try assists. He hasnt been the same since his ACL injury. He just had his worst season in the NRL aside from 2016 where he was limited to part of 1 game.

    I think he would be a fantastic depth player. Great for helping develop centres in the lower grades. But considering his age and form trajectory since his ACL injury in 2016 its very unlikely we will see him at anywhere near that level again.

    If he did, he didn't he didn't share it here. Apart from that Roosters fella everyone had Koroisau going to the Dogs.

    I never said he has, or hasn't, just saying brandy would or could be a good judge on potential signings

    Didn't he select the last 2 origin squads that has gone back to back? Wasn't all him but had a part in getting players to suit Freddies style

    You look at the NSW team neither year has had what I would call the best 17 the state has. They were all what suited Fittler. Just do the same here get us a squad that has depth and fits the style going forward whatever that is

    Yes it was the "no DikHed policy"
    I wonder if we can follow that policy too

    Which should rule out dylan walker and ryan matterson i suppose

    With our rumoured targets and the news that Hetherington might stay it seems we are looking at an ALL dickhead policy
