    Actually now I read your comment there are some people in the know who have said the club are taking a wait and see approach. To me that’s a huge mistake if they’re correct.

    Especially not there?.. so you think that because Api wasn't discussed as being a Penrith recruit and did sign, that because Scott isn't being discussed he will come here too? Why would he come to Penrith and not go to Canberra?

    Is that code for look at the dregs and perhaps get someone cheap?

    I'd like to know what the philosophy is. So what kind of player they want etc. From an outside perspective it looks like they are relying on promoting from within but I don't know anyone at the club.

    The player managers would know where we sit cap space wise. When x player is available we would know like every other club.. The waiting part would be seeing how much freight the player comes with

    CNK- test player
    Cotric - Origin
    Croker - Captain
    Leilua

    Their backline seems set. So why go when he could walk into us, Knights or Dogs

    It is clear we need experience. That takes time to come available sometimes

    That's not the club's signing/roster philosophy though. That's A fan opinion on what they think is needed. I'm talking about what the people in charge think is needed and what they are waiting for etc.

    Has it not been club policy for a long time not to make comments of any sort about player signings until completed. Although it is fun to speculate!!

    When have we ever known that? That stuff is kept quiet always has been.

    This batch of kids is good so might have a small list of what we are after

    You can't use that against me when that's was my original comment. I said I wish we knew what their roster philosophy is but we don't.

    When have we? I don't see what the issue of a sudden is when we have been this way as long as I can remember

    It's not an issue. This entire thing got twisted from me helping Alice understand what was said. The argument is from Herbert against the wait and see people here.

    Ok Nostradamus..so what is the policy here with signings?..You like everyone else is hanging by the balls for something to happen, and at this stage it doesn't look like anything is happening. You seem like mr status quo and happy with any journeyman to come in just to make up the numbers and not strengthen the crap that is already here.

    And answer ALL the questions..not half of it. If I had a chance to play for Canberra ( Grand Finalists) or this bullshit, I know where I would want to go. He has a chance there to take Leilua's position, and that's what Canberra probably want.

    Storm are better than Raiders. Chambers gone. He and Olam will be the centres so why leave to be possible backup?

    I rate the young guys to kick on very strongly so makes no sense to bring guys in their mid 20's to need to offload in a few years.

    We have 4 spots not like we have the cap space to bring in 4 stars. Bringing in 1 and 3 rookies doesn't fix the issue. 4 guys with 100-200 games experience makes the squad look better.

    Answer this. 4 spots my guess is $1m left how would you spend it?

    There definitely is wait and see people you were one. I definitely remember comments along those lines.
