I personally think we need the following:

1. An out and out metre eater imposing prop (perhaps Klemmer).
2. Graham to retire and Talakai to move in to second row/bench
3. A gun centre/outside back. Talakai can cover centre but I don't think he should be our first choice option and Tracey sucks at it.

No disagreement from me

I know his debut was poor, but could Iro be the answer for centre? Player of the year in NSW cup I think?

1) GOOD big bopper (Fifita 5 year ago) prop as in a leota, paulo, papalli, JWH type.

2) Fullback, if Dykes looks like he could end up at fullback permanently and be good defensively would be happy to trial (but would guess he looks like ending up taking Moylans spot in the future?) Don’t rate Kennedy.

3) Graham to retire (or no new contract!).

More of Dykes
No Wade at all
No Moylan more Trindall
Less of Hynes at 7 and more of him at 6

Off the top of my head with absolutely no salary cap thinking.

A gun centre (Talakai back to bench rotation)
A gun prop off the bench in place of Fif/Tol
Dykes becomes the prodigal son at the back

Read todays Jets thread
Ugly reading throughout the game .
Whatever, give him a shot next year and let him develop and get Hynes at 6 - Moylan ain’t it

I assume we have some cap space for next season, so yeah biggest thing is we spend it on a starting prop then see what else happens around other clubs.

Our left edge and fullback I think were our biggest positions that could improve.

Would have liked an organising 7 (Not Trindell) and move Hynes to 6 - but Moylan re-signed for 2 more years.

Dykes to take over fullback -
Tracey & Kennedy to Jets
Talakai to bench,
Wilton to 2nd row
Wade to fecked right off
Sign a classy ball playing centre for the left edge.
Agrresive metre eating middle forward to stop us getting bullied -

Are you sure? You've been singing praises for Wade all year!
