    Chris McQueen is a good acquisition - but what about THE BIG FOUR !!! :)

    Hard to follow some teams. Unless we're about to see a huge clean-out ?

    Tigpies had a big clean out a couple of seasons ago when the sharks became the "tiger sharks" after they got so many players off them.
    One of the only players they kept was Moltzen and Farah had his days number on a massive back ended contract.
    They still have the old Balmain leagues club hanging like an albatross around their neck as well so you wonder if they can actually afford another clean out plus buy replacement players.

    Tigers making some solid signings. But I think they've been ripped off with Moses leaving for Parra. Should have been a player swap.

    David Klemmer (?) - Wests have the look of a good side being developed.

    Yes with Mick and JT give the flick as coaches Benchy might be just the guy to bring some assistance to the Tigpies as well as a great way to see out his career

    Gee we some more outside backs. The Dragons have a few good ones worth a look at. Zac Lomax, Steven Marsters, and Reuben Garrick. Thoughts.

    Yes - all good and a spot coming with Nighty about to retire. But - one or two might have to move on as they all can't play - we have Aitken, Nene, Lafai, all there and probably staying. Dufty looks to be making the FB his own spot. We also have Jai Field. So I'd like to see Zac stay firstly. Then one of the others - if not both. Both seems hard.

    Yes - we just have to find a spot for him now. Maybe Bench ? But then we have Mann. Maybe Mann to replace Nighty.

    Just imagine Dufty, Field and McInnes all looking for action - with Hunt and Widdop to help. Field could also back up McInnes.

    Jai Field could be the x-factor the Dragons may need come finals time. Like you said with Dufty, Field, and McInnes all looking for action. Zac Lomax may take Nighty spot next year ?? The Dragons do have some very good depth in the backs, Can I ask what is your option on the following players Reuben Garrick, Patrick Herbert and Steven Marsters? can they play first grade next year or two or are they just good back up players?

    I have a horrible feeling we may lose one or two of them. You can only play 17 on the day. Maybe they might wait - they are young - for someone to go. But they won't wait forever - regardless of being in the squad of 30.

    We have Nighty on the way out. And we do need players at SOO time. But some sides today need centres/wings and FBs now. I'd say a few coaches might have their eyes on these 3 - eg Cleary and Brown - and especially Arthur.

    Its not that they aren't good players who may well be top players - but rather who gets dropped to let them in. Field and Dufty are a good example. A few years back many might have said Jai would be the one to make it. I feel Lomax is next cab off the rank to grab a spot.

    We also have Leilua on the verge - with maybe Leeson to go ? Its always so hard.
