    Lol that's what I was thinking too. However I nearly didn't recognise him as he wasn't carrying cones

    Apparently all our players are on much less than reported. I don't even know how we get anywhere near the cap.

    You were not the ONLY one. Sad to be correct.

    I saw that earlier too. What a demotion. Head coach > Assistant coach > Waterboy.

    The lad is on fire. He could be ball boy by the end of the month.

    Damn good news if it comes about. He has really found his place out in the centres and is making good on the faith that both current and past coaching staffs have shown in him.

    Great news. Our backs are well and truly sorted for next year then.

    We still need a 9 and I think we're lacking another experienced forward who's played and won at the highest level. Maybe a Crocker or Dallas Johnson. Will help with the younger players coming through.

    No...I get we won't know until the deal is finalised...

    He's shown some real qualities on his game this year, it wouldn't surprise me if there are some late bidders for his services.

    We won't be getting an established 9 as there isn't any in the market however there is an option at state cup level who I saw recently that could be a good option.

    Great. Let's re-sign everyone and see what happens.

    Kevin Kingston is still off contract isn't he? With Segeyaro coming along nicely the Panthers might not extend his deal.

    Im guessing like everyone else that has signed or re-signed recently it will be 2 years.

    I guess so... But it doesn't appear that stick wants him, they made enquiries for rein but they didn't want to pay through the nose..

    We will probably have a good young 9 ready to take over full time in about 2 years, but that player still needs to learn a thing or two from a senior player. Sandow is not an organising 7, so a dummy half that can organise, as well as make good decisions more often than not that, who can also teach our half-back a thing or two about organising. One that is up for a 1 year last season deal. A player who can basically do a job for us, but not be a superstar. A player that at the end of this year would pretty much surplus to his Club's requirements. Nathan Fien anyone?

    Mate honestly we could do a lot worse.

    He's a premiership winner and whilst I don't rate him as a 7 he's a very good 9.

    I think we really will benefit from a couple of old heads
    Like him, like Crocker, like Dallas Johnson that know what it takes to win at the highest level.

    All our boys have known for the past few years is how to lose.

    We need to change that loser culture.
