    BUT Holmes is the best option out there for our fullback considering what's available.Lomax is a out & out centre not a fullback or winger. If he starts the season on the wing it will show that Mcmumpet is still holding the reins.

    Robbo wanted a starting job and the offer he got at the Cowboys was double what the dragons are offering him.

    Yes what a genius idea the coach is likely to think off, rest your hooker that covers most ground than any other position by throwing him into the back row, where he will be gasp & ill effective.

    Robson has proved nothing yet re regular 1st grade. Yes he got not a lot of time with us to show his repetoire and Yes was never going to replace Cam but the hype re him and money he is now getting is hope and potential more than proven worth. I am happy we did not dislodge Cam for him.

    Whisper in Cronulla circles is that Val Homes and Flannagan wont be sending XMAS cards to one another so forget about him coming to the Dragons because of Flanno...WONT HAPPEN
    Flanno also thinks his best position is winger in lieu of fullback and I tend to agree..but Val wont accept that

    Yes that makes sense re Holmes position and I agree with Flanno.
    Interesting that the Cows are attempting to move Granville to Manly to make the play for both Holmes and Mitchell.
    Holmes is a done deal for Cows as his wife moved back there a few weeks back.

    You know not much gets said about the Cows and the salary cap. They have to be as flush with 3rd parties as the Roosters, broncs etc as they always can afford star studded players
    They could have 4 x 1 mill players on their books. Morgan, Val, JT, Mitchell?...and they can always pay good $$$ to lure players. Some of their other forwards and backs are on good dosh. McLean, Hess, Cooper, O'Neill, Marsters, Drinkwater

    Agree BLM01
    But what I have been told, Val Holmes was in number 1 priority and now they have secured him that Mitchell will go to the tigers but the Cows will make a offer.
    Mitchell wants the FB and so does Homles.

    Thats fine. That leaves only 3 x $1 mill players. Still like to know how they fit their Top 30 in. Dragons have 1 player at $1 mill. Go figure. Manly will have 3 also.

    It's all to do with Third parties .
    It needs to be more open than it is.
    The one town teams and teams with multi millionaire supporters will always have a huge advantage. IMO.
    Re manly they have always been able to rought the system.
    We are so far behind it's ridiculous

    Many people on here were calling for Robson over McInnes, ridiculous McInnes is just hitting peak form. We are so wrapped up in youth we forget about the now.

    Phew, what relief. Here’s me thinking we were a retirement village sponsored by the reject shop.

    Technically we’re a two town team, but one of those towns is a one team town.

    How sad that the Titanic is ready to sail and it's still looking for crew.
