    Davies his name is Davies by the way, was a 7 and an average one at that. Only someone with the genius footballing mind of Bea thought he could turn him into a dummy half and that was actually good enough for a side challenging for the title.

    And I’m pretty sure Daviseeeeees was promoted into the top 30 in the off season. And I’ll say again we did not have one proper dummy half option after 21 year old Mahoney in his second season in our top 30.


    More waffle incoming.........

    Did you see Davies play? He was quick and tough with f**k all skill. Far better suited to dummy half than halfback.

    Just get Levi or Granville..Levi would cost FA and do a job. Granville is being shopped by the Cows. If they pay a fair chunk of his contract we snag a bargain.
    Granville is also a former premiership winner. Yes 31 now but i think he would have 2 or 3 more years left in him..

    Of course that’s the dream goal for every club and coach each year.
    But there’s a thing called a realist goal, which every club would set.
    For example the Dogs wouldn’t have had a goal of winning the comp this year, probably more realistic to finish in the top of the bottom 8.
    With the injuries and MJ situation that happened at the end of the season, the way we finished would be a pass mark, only just but it would be!

    There’s 16 teams in the comp, only 1 coach is winning the competition each year. Most coaches are judged on improvements each year, BA has been improving

    I’m not against signing Peats provided it doesn’t chew up too much of our cap space. In theory he can provide a rest for Mahoney for 20 mins a game and still keep our line speed up. Probably leads to less tackling required by Reed and therefore an improvement to his running game.

    Levi or Granville for small minutes would be great.
    Levi doesn't have a club so will work out cheap and Granville will be heavily subsidised by the Cows.
    The 1 thing both these 2 provide is direct running from dummy half. Rather them 2 than Peats

    I feel like we need a more attacking based hooker for that 20min spell..
    Think back to PJ Marsh and Kevin Kingston, I think parra teams are better with an attacking option at 14

    I will be interested to see who else the Roosters offload now...I suggest they held onto a few knowing they were going for 3 in a row. Now that they are 3 years away from that at least, I suspect they will try and move a few on. Flanagan and this guy are the first two examples.

    Yeah definitely Granville or Levi over Peats. None are great but really we just need someone there so we’re not relying on Mahoney for 80 every week. Same way we need others there so we’re not relying on Paulo, RCG and Nrown

    They should be getting rid of Cordner. Has done his job and is surely not far away from being medically retired if he gets 1 or 2 more concussions...

    You'd imagine they will do just that at some point.

    Um, didn't we already sign him last week?

    " At about the time on Friday night that Blake Ferguson was officially scratched for Saturday’s finals clash against South Sydney – joining fellow winger Maiko Sivo on the sidelines – Tom Opacic was signing a contract to join Parramatta next year."
