    Are you suggesting that our 2019 roster is better than the 2018 roster?

    Woods was over-rated, I have no idea why we signed him. Mbye was all talk, no show. The Morris boys, as great as they are, are at the end of their careers. We can always buy reliable and fast wingers and centres - I think we're already safe in having solid replacements for them. Klemmer will be a loss, but I don't think that he's irreplaceable. We have gifted youngsters who will be hungry for FG time after winning the state and national championship last year. Now I still don't think that will be enough to get us into the finals, however it's something to build upon for 2020. All the teams who win comps don't achieve success overnight.

    No, you appear to have assumed that.
    Basically - this. We're no guarantee of shooting up the table as the squad is largely the same.

    It largely hinges on how well our depth signings perform - there's plenty of promise in some of the signings we've made - CHN and Sue in particular. But whether they actually fire is key to whether we can challenge for finals.

    I think a lot also rests on whether Foran is fit and if he is, whether he can find his best form. When he's on, he's a great player, but sadly it's been several years since we've seen that at any consistent level.

    I didn’t assume that Timothy, I asked a question

    The squad isn’t largely the same. You took 5 of our best players out of the team that were there at the start of 2018. Like your optimism but sadly it’s misguided. Guys like Sue and CHN are ok but they aren’t taking us up the table

    ?????? Mbye was comfortably our best player before he left in 2018. What game were you watching?

    The fact you asked implies you assumed it was my train of thought. The concession of Klemmer being a significant loss should have answered it regardless.

    A disingenuous attempt to continue the discussion and balance the "facts" in your favour but doesn't wash with me. As stated previously, Mbye and Woods left halfway through the year and we improved after their departure.

    Anyway as I said I'm hopefuly we can move a couple of places up but I'm not expecting miracles.

    No Tim, just confused with your train of thought so thought I’d clarify

    Of course I’m comparing the start of 2018 to the start of 2019. Why the f**k would I compare r20 or any other round to now? FMD. We improved? Lulz. We beat a garbage broncos team, Killed the dragons and just got over the line vs the warriors. Lost everything else including an eels game. By golly that excites me

    He had a few good bursts in games but wasn't consistent.

    Then don't be excited, but you can't tell others not to be lol. I saw enough promise in the latter half of the season - we were far more competitive and played better footy after Mbye and Woods had one. I don't know the reasons for that but it happened. Diminish it all you want.
