    Seems a no brainer for a struggling coach to bring in a try scoring machine, all I can hear are crickets chirping, perhaps McGregor doesn’t know he is a struggling coach.

    But didn’t lats retire, that should be, what 800k 900k in our kitty at least, considering how lats was able to block one of the most exciting up and coming forwards from playing first grade last year, he’d have to have been on big bucks for sure.

    Its all about the money, money, money.
    He wants the money, money, money.
    Its not about the zig zag
    Its just about the price tag.

    So, simple explanation we cant afford him, at least in 2020.

    Don't need outside backs.

    Aitken , Lafai and co. will be much better once the meditation sessions kick in.

    Latrel MITCHEL career would go backwards under McGregor he wil deskill him take away his natural instincts and flair and turn him into a big battering ram aka josh Dugan aka Lafai eitkin pedestrians, in accordance with the Gould report every body needed to be sacked except McGregor so next year watch out ball boys your next to be sacked

    We have a lot of issues on and off the field. Imo paying Latrell $800k+ is not the answer to any of them.

    Don’t want Mitchell. He is a grub and a fair weather bully. We don’t need the circus that goes with him. A few backs I’d pick before him... besides we don’t have the money.

    Mitchell has all the ability to be a great player but has a lot of mental baggage and now he has Mundine working for him enuff said

    we've missed any of the half decent players that were available.

    we're now down amongst the sloppy seconds brigade.

    There’s a thing called the salary cap which most clubs have to abide by (excluding the Chooks, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canterbury and Manly).

    Remember the days when Saints were linked to EVERYBODY? Those memories are long gone, especially with McIdiot in charge.

    BTW, where’s our obligatory Canberra signing?

    Yeah, everyone knew the Dragons were just a tool for the player manager to up the contract value of said player but now they don't even do that. We have reached such lows that Managers know other clubs will no longer fall for it.

    Millward is in charge of recruitment, reporting directly to our CEO Brian Johnston. Our cap is in a mess for 2020 even though we have a very poor back 5. Apart from Lomax and Saab, we really need to recruit some first grade backs.

    Millward should have singed the untried young backs, Pearson and Ravalawa to a one year deal with an option in the Club's favour for a further year. Pereira should never have been signed long term; he is essentially a reserve grade player.

    If we could off-load Hunt and replace him with either Dufty or Sailor we would create enough pace to recruit Mitchell and a first grade fullback or Mitchell and another first grade centre.

    From my point of view Norman is a halfback and needs to be paired with a quick five-eighth. T Sims would need to run protection in defence in the same way that Thompson used to do so with Soward.

    Bottom line we need to some how offload Hunt for Mitchell.

    Too much coin.
    Poor attitude.
    Mundine advising him.
    Three strikes and he’s out!

    Next!

    The fact that absolutely no one can afford him just proves what we all know about the Rorters. Even Keary, he’s nil for Origin, won three grand finals. Now I know we paid overs for Hunt but the gap wouldn’t be huge, I can’t fathom that he wouldn’t be on at least 2/3 of Hunts salary. Brett Morris, i realise he was cheap but was he cheaper than Pearson, Ravalawa? They have Ryan Hall and don’t play him. Tedesco best player in the world...
