    Agree with most of these though I’d swap positions of Hoffman and French. Hoffman can play multiple positions. French can only play fullback and doesn’t really like contact sports.

    I still want to see French behind a pack that wins the ruck and makes good yardage. Unfortunately I don't think it will be one wearing Blue and Gold.

    Why do we need to sign a rookie to partner the 3 game rookie we already have?

    First in the NRL for try assists. Let me guess, you also think our attack is shit? Guess where we're sitting for points scored per game.

    I'd still take a rookie over Moses, Moses plays one good game in five games, Overrated.

    No, I think Moses probably did another shit kick, hence the sarcastic comment. And also he's probably a bit shit.

    He did a shit kick because he's a risk taker, in a team that needs some merkin to take risks. One of his touch finders went about 60 metres last night. Obviously when you're that keen some will fail to find touch.

    It's not hard to pressure a kicking game when a team has only one kicker.

    Overrated? By whom? I've literally never seen anyone rate him any higher than decent.

    If they all stay even for the low prices you have mentioned then we have the same shit team with the same shit coaches next year.

    They won't all accept the money i indicated. In fact, I suggest outside of Gower, Davey and Stone, none would stay for the money indicated.

    I'd offer Pritchard $10k a game or a pie and beer after the game. I suggest he'd take the guaranteed pie and beer after the game.

    They can all go, I'm not even being funny. It's not worked, they have all had ample time here and done nothing for the club, we could do without them honestly.

    I know it isn't realistic in one off season but I would be looking to move all of them on, especially player like Moeora, French and Alvaro. They promised so much mainly Moeroa and French and have delivered nothing short of SFA.

    A new coach would also help but a lot of our players just need to go, they haven't been good enough and never will be.

    I reckon we need 2 forwards, edge / middle, utility/hooker and potentially a centre for 2020. Get those players then work out who we should keep from our current players off contract.

    We should only target experienced/leadership type players (however not all potential signings will meet this). We already have plenty of players with potential. Additionally not many players are off contract for 2020, however there is a few off contract in 2020 so we may need to target these players hoping for an early release.

    So I would look at:

    Middle - Tamou / James / Lodge / Jake T
    Edge - Jackson / Frizell / Aubusson
    Utility/hooker - peats (can play “lock” too ) / friend /Burher
    Centre - Scott / Croker

    Obviously not all are going to be serious options (want to much or unlikely to leave).
