Question for you Slip

Say we didn't have Amone and in need of a 5/8. Cameron Munster and Phoenix Crossland are both available and wanting to play with the Dragons. Are you saying they should sign Crossland because he has 10+ years ahead of him?
Yep, because Munster can't tackle (but either could Thurston)
And do you have any footage of this Crossland fella !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has been said by the media, not me, but didn't Thurston trial with us first before we decided he was too small, if I recall????
Don't think Thurston trialled with us, mate. The big one I recall was Laurie Daley trialling with Steelers, and told he was too small and should go back to Country league for ànother year. Then a couple of weeks later, signed with the Raiders.

It will be a dark day for our club if we lose Sullivan before he gets a descent go in first grade. Griffin gave Sullivan just over a minute 2 weeks ago and then Sloane under 5 minutes left last week. If the club does not get rid of Griffin soon we will lose a lot more juniors.
Also Hunt needs to make a decision wether he is staying or going now and not bullshit the club around to who has paid him well.

This is an incredible discussion. We have a glaring problem at hooker. We also have the QLD SOO hooker, who is the highest paid player in the Club’s history and one of the highest paid players in the game. We also have a very highly rated young halfback, with a deep playing connection with a very highly rated young 5/8 and a very talented young fullback. Hunt and Hook can do great things for this club and numerous young players simply by doing the screamingly obvious thing by agreeing to play Hunt at hooker. We’ve also got Mul coming through. FFS! Surely they’re not going to potentially fk up numerous young player‘s careers and cause huge harm for the foreseeable future by laying down virtual ransom demands to the Club that has given them such great opportunities. If we lose Sully (and possibly others) at the price of Hunt preferring halfback and supporting the careers of his old mates (McC and Hook), then I would lose all respect for him and I would fully anticipate he will finish his career with the reputation of being a mega paid wrecker instead of being a fantastic clubman who helped to set the club up for a glorious future.

Lots players are stars in lower grades andfor many reasons just don’t make it in nrl

Yes, never should let Robson go cows
maybe Sloan Amone and Sullivan could be same but maybe not

Sullivan is injury prone and yet to prove himself
hunt does not want to be a club 9 and so won’t be so forget that idea

yes sadly lots of our players are crap and going backwards under Hook

watching Parra tonight brown already a great player c/w Amone
Even Jake Arthur looks a more complete footballer 19 and only played a few games !!
Penisini more solid and reliable c/w Lomax

yes a lot of it is Hooks coaching and game plans
He has failed to bring these kids thru and improved them the last 18 months

The players have to take some responsibility though each week to perform and improve their games

just not happening at saints and I think a lot of desperate fans hoping for things to change with a group of young kids ALL of which have not proved themselves let’s be honest

I would rather have Jake Arthur than Amone 2 try assists , good short and long kicking game age 19 and only a few games
Amone a right foot step now 18 months first grade
I’d rather see Sullivan at 6 for rest year if he can play there to see what he offers before he asks for a release as he will if Hunt stays which he likey will

maybe I’ll be proved wrong and a lot of u guys do know more than me but just my thoughts

All I keep reading on this and other threads is 'give the kids are run'.
Who are the kids?

I've made mention to everyone in a recent post that this season the majority of our run on side is under the age of 25.

I personally am happy that such a large portion of the team is youthful as it is.

So by the kids who do people mean? Do we mean Sloan who again as I've pointed out before has had ample chances and was given the first crack at fullback this year, but still has glaring defincies in his game?

Or do we mean Sullivan who for a half that is supposed to elude defences, has only managed to elude consistent first grade selection through constant injuries? He had a full game at half against the Broncos and couldn't manage to weight a kick or manage the game well enough at all.

There are plenty of 'kids' by that I mean players under 25 being brought through by Hook, so what else do we want?

Well said Mojo. I think if the club doesn't sort out the Hunt/Hook connection with Hunt moving to 9 and Sullivan decides to go to whomever his Agent can get a club who will put him in their first grade to sign up with, then this could result in some other young guns wanting to leave.

Perfectly said, No further discussion needed.

Simple solution
Get rid of Hunt
But unfortunately NO ONE else wants him.
