Yes - Canterbury or Parra maybe but ...
Adam Blair ?
Blair seems pretty settled in Brisbane.
Bennett the ex-copper who probably beat many young offenders, Hunt is in Qld cup - Why? Simple really, hunt is going to the Dragons.
Also why Ese'ese was dropped. Apparently going to the Knights.
Blair rumour raises its ugly head again.
he is well travelled in the Nrl so I guess he might wear his welcome out a bit
Patrick Kafusi ?
you never who might turn up in a Red V. More than a few clubs could have cap issues BUT the Players association will wear their little caps and dig in to make sure their comrades are not disadvantaged fiscally.
Michael Lichaa’s in the mix now. Could be a useful alternate with McInnes.
What happens to the next in line Reece Robson?
Agree. But you can't tell people some times. We badly need speed out wide.
Moto - Alex Wamsley (SH) ?
Hope not. One of the genuine international class players left in SL.
So - would Graham and Walmsley add some starch to the Saints pack for 2018 Moto ?
Starch isn't the problem with the Dragons pack. Anyone can run the ball hard if they have a mind to but what they need is...
A hard run followed by an offload at or in the tackle to another player backing them up otherwise its just a one out run with an easy tackle opportunity
The also need to value field position and stop conceding so much ground in defence. They can and have done it but seemingly prefer to retreat until their backs are on their goal line
A little or a lot more discipline would also help if they stop conceding silly penalties when they do get the ball up to their oppositions 20 to start their defensive set.
Before Bennett started his planning to leave he actually had the side playing as a team that wanted to defend and attack rather than shuffle aimlessly hoping for something to happen.
Looking from the outside, I think stanley is right; it's not a matter of personnel, but coaching. The Dragons already have players who can 'run the ball in hard', like Frizell.
Do any of you guys remember Shane Millard? In all honesty his name didn't ring a bell, but I was watching an old archive Wigan game earlier and he was playing for us, and looked pretty decent.
Yeah - some years back. Not sure he was anything great - but I remember the name. Got a feeling he played for a few teams. Was he a forward ?
Separate names with a comma.
