    Chris Mortimer and Peter Kelly would’ve been considered prolific signings.

    We payed Locky or JT money for Petero......worst signing in our history really. Ridiculous cash for a prop

    Depends how you want the cap used.

    We already have Cleary on Marquee money. Can you have 2?

    Maloney money could get one as could RCG's money but then the squad is weak elsewhere. I'd prefer to spread it around

    I'm a fan of big, aggressive and mobile forward packs with plenty of mongrel. We lack aggression I think. With 700-800k in the bank I reckon we try and sign Christian Welch, Brandon Smith, Adam Blair (kinda past it I know) or one of the Saifiti's. Cleary and Luai can play off the back of our current pack plus one or two of those.

    Way I see it we have the below guys that I would be happy to back being a strong basis for a contender for the next few years. I think Naden is likely to become a rocks and diamonds centre or a quality winger.

    2. Naden 3. Crichton 5. To’o 6. Luai/Burton 7. Cleary 8. Tamou 10. JFH 11. Yeo 12. Kikau 13. Blore 14. Egan 15. Leniu 16. Leota 17. Martin

    Edwards and Kenny are doing great but they are the clear areas to accelerate this side to contention. If you can prize Turbo away for 8 x $1.25 I’d do it. Api for 3 x $600 do it. We shouldn’t have an issue moving Sauce, Edwards and Whare nor Reggie if we eat 1/200K. If we can get a top 5 player at 1/9 or a truly elite player outside that (Arrow) I think we try and make it happen and figure out what to do with Staines etc later.

    There was no strike power in DWZ. He was a carthorse who scored 11 tries in his best season. Massively overrated as a winger.

    Nah, I remember it well. They were both in the twilight of their careers and 28/29 years old. Canterbury had the best out of them, but they certainly helped us develop a winning attitude.

    We’ve never signed anyone from the top echelon of marquee guys, but we’ve had a few from the next step down.

    Freeman
    Gillmeister
    Priddis
    Preston Campbell
    Civ
    Merrin
    Tamou

    I'd still consider him a quality player. International as well.

    Point is we should be cashed up. Less talk about depth signings, more about marquee signings. This aint Panthers 2008.

    His form fell off a cliff in 2017 and hasn't ever found it again consistently

    Don't forget Mark 'Sparkles' McGaw. That one didn't go well.

    Perhaps at a stretch add Geoff Gerard and Neville Glover

    Only reason I didn’t include him is he was more of a player swap than a straight signing.


    Speaking of which, an official trade period would really benefit our club. With all our juniors we could use it as a way to bring in exoerienced talent.

    I reckon he’s one of our top 3 signings ever.

    Girdler (who was only young when we signed him) and Campbell being the other two.
