    Anyway back to the signings. I'm pretty sure Peats should be announced after the Souths game on Monday night. Spoke to a mad Souths mate of mine at the kids soccer yesterday and he told me that Peats agreed to terms weeks ago.

    Gotta say, the new board is doing a marvelous job.

    Sacking KE, by all accounts was a step in the right direction.

    Playing out of parra stadium is only going to benefit us.

    All we need now is a win, to give the boys spirits a lift.

    Groat is a massive unit. He will turn into a decent prop imo.

    Fingers crossed. Probably just waiting on Souths side for them to grant him to break the contract I guess

    Well he's not actually an LC director and it wouldn't come under the cap if it came from an organization not currently sponsoring the club.

    Absolutely agree. There's a reason this guy has never won a premiership. Narcissism.

    No offence, mate, but what do you think Mossop is? And what do you think Hock is? And why on earth would we get Shillington for a 'decent price'?

    From another post.......

    With a bigger more powerful pack of forwards next year Kelly is going to shine at 7. Considering how much bigger and more powerful the Raiders pack is, Kelly did very well behind a pack of forwards struggling to hold back a much more superior pack of forwards. We need three more players of a gutsy NRL standard to join our squad for next year and we are a very good chance of making the 8 next year. With Kelly cementing 7 what happens with Sandow now..... 14/9???

    A GF spine (my prediction)

    1. Hopoate
    6. Hayne this position is inevitable for Jarryd
    7. Kelly we have finally found our stable smart organising half back
    9. Roby (if we can get him) or someone like Peats or Cameron King

    2. Sio or Semi or Takai (once he gets blooded)
    3. Norman (imagine Hopoate or Semi etc etc running off Norman who is currently a slightly smaller version of Mick Cronin - maybe this is why we might not get Lafai or go after Inu)
    4. Tonga
    5. Morgan or Semi or Takai or see below Falou

    8. Mannah
    10. Mossop
    11. Harrison (he has shocked me - becoming an excellent second rower) or Loko or Tangerine Dream
    12. Hock
    13. Lussick

    14. (see 9 above) - throw in Pritchard as we continue to slowly blood him into NRL
    15, 16, 17 (and other players still to be blooded) to be fought out amongst a cast of thousands....
    Allgood - a thug of a player - the worst of this thig still to come..... PLEASE......
    Williame - he is a promising back up center/winger/fullback - the best of him still to come - be patient, he's a goer
    Junior Paulo (wow, what a player - he is almost the best (if not the best) of our junior crops coming through
    Loko as a second rower - wide attacking receiver
    Terepo - another awesome player - WOWWWW -
    Tangerine Dream can't wait to see him play NRL again next year ---- WOWWWW
    Manu Mau - am very excited to see what comes from Mau playing NRL - fingers crossed - he looks a beauty
    Kenny Edwards - can his body handle the riggers of week to week NRL or will his bruised liver pack it in every second week?
    Fui Fui
    Fraser M - another WOWWW of a player still to be blooded - he has international written all over him
    Lasalo (he will get better - I still think he is a goer - just needed more mongrel and he will find that from the best angry passionate arsehole our club has acquired since Daniel Anderson, enter Ricky Stuart).
    Maafu - looking forward to seeing how he handles NRL week in week out - looks promising - fingers crossed
    John Falou - still to be blooded - if he is half as good as his older brother then he could be blooded playing on the wing next year - fingers crossed
    Ualesi - another WOWWW of a player - possibly not ready until 2015 - he and Junior Paulo & Pauli Pauli could become our long term bookends in a few years.
    Pauli Pauli - looking forward to seeing him being blooded in the NRL for a game or two this year or next year - another promising junior who needs to put on at least another 5ks by sometime next year - fingers crossed

    Norman to play in the centers where he will shine with Tonga.
    Morgan to the wing with Sio and Loko to the backrow, bench or not.
    Semi, might be good enough by next year to take a wing spot. I like him and he is another player we must be very patient with for the rest of this year. Let him now learn the ropes of NRL standards.

    Things are seriously looking up for next years - we are serious top 8 contenders for 2014.

    Tune in next month for Casper's latest updates and don't be surprised if he has thrown today's predictions in the garbage bin by then - such is the way when following the Eels..... :lol::lol:

    He apparently wants out of Canberra and he may not have a lot options ( or he may) so we may be able to get him at an ok price. Mossop is only 103kg and hock is about 100kg , shillington is about 114kg - he is a lot bigger. I think we need a couple of big forwards - and with his age / experience he may also provide some leadership which we are missing.

    Would be a very good buy if we can get him at a reasonable price.
