    I’m a big fan of the Mbye signing. He has been a shining light in a garbage side. Will fit into our spine nicely IMO.

    I dont think it will make us world beaters but a spine of:

    1. Mbye
    6. Reynolds
    7. Brooks
    9. Farah/Liddle

    Is significantly better then:

    1. Thompson/Lolohea
    6. Gamble
    7. Brooks
    9. McIllwrick/Taylor

    Guys you can only buy the players that are off contract AND want to come play for us.

    Season one of Ivan has shown signs of the future.

    Yes that is better spine but for mine not enough to change the outcome if the other 13 players dont improve dramatically...

    Need to get the tryline defence back from the first 6 weeeks..,

    Also the forwards completing 80 percent of their sets and making meters...

    I think Mbye has been average.. ( not bad like the Tigers fullbacks)...

    He is a long way off the elite number 1’s though and I don’t believe it’s his best position..,

    At least he can kick goals though which has been a team weakness forever..

    You also attract players when you offer the most money and the longest period of time for the contract... gotta make sure they are the right players though

    Geez our goal line defence has been a major Achilles heel since the loss to parra.

    I totally agree about Mbye & it’s y I’m livid that we’ve signed him on such a lengthy contract.Cleary & Pascoe r off there heads continuing to sign these non elite players on these ridiculous contracts.

    It angers me to have to say that I’ve no doubt that in the fullness of time it will b demonstrated that Cleary has fkd up by not recruiting shrewdly.

    That will mean that Cleary has failed and come 2021 they will be going through another rebuild with Des Hasler, Macguire or maybe even Trent Robinson if the Roosters haven’t won another one by then,,,

    Can’t even comprehend another rebuild.. let’s just hope that Ivan brings Nathan here in 2020 and that is the turning point..

    From what I've seen he's been pretty crap, but when you're in a team going as badly as the Dogs I think it has to rub off. I'd prefer if we had signed him for less than 4 years. I have seen him play really well, going back a couple of years, so hopefully he just needs to get away from the Doggie Debacle to come good again.

    He has played well in the past but not in the 1 jersey.. Don’t believe it’s his best spot..

    I don’t think he has been bad this year... just average. Unfortunately that isn’t going to solve the problems we have seen develop the last 2 months with the team..

    Yeah, I've always seen him in the halves. Hope Ivan knows what he's doing with this one. Perhaps there aren't any better fullback options around?

    I reckon Mbye will go well at fullback. It's one of our weakest positions. Hooker is no 1 prioroty, then fullback and then right edge backrower. After that we need to get better players.

    Poor Mahe, he's a tough motherf**ker and even he looked like he was in terrific pain.

    Gives you an idea about how tough Matty Utai was to play a half of footy with a broken arm.

    With both Suli and Milne gone I would move Gamble to centre,this gives him fg experience,sure Kev and MWZ could do the job but we already know what they are capable of.
