So Copely - the kid can play. We should (and I hope are) looking to throw some coin his way.

So put a line through Ben Hunt with Benny off to the Broncos no way he comes down to play under Flanno. DCE won't come across either so it's down to the average halves for us.

Unless Wayne doesn't rate him.

Besides, Hodgkinson is off contract at the end of 2015 as well isn't he?

He won't leave the dogs loves it there he and Renyolds have a great combo. We will need to develop our own stars I think and hold onto them.

We should be in a position to offer quite a bit more than them if we're prepared to. I agree, Bennett going back home makes it harder for us, but money talks if the difference is big enough.

Souths moving to secure Reynolds. Never thought we'd get either hunt or Reynolds either.

They mightn't be able to afford him.
They've got Mbye coming up the ranks too.

Can come to the Sharks to play with his mate Ennis.

I know he probably won't. But at this rate, I'm willing to try anything. He left Manly to chase the money, he could do it again. Couldn't hurt to ask, if Hunt stays in Brisbane, right?

We would have to be in a much stronger position then we are now of the field to attract a marquee player in his prime. We only got Carney because he did not have many options.

I don't think in a year we will have turned it around enough but I think that could be a blessing. The tigers will be a strong side over the next 5 years all home grown and while we don't have anywhere near the depth of talent we do have a crop of really talented kids to come through over the next 2-3 years.

Might be time to bite the bullet see out the old blokes left in the team and from 2017 own the comp with our own youth (sprinkled with a few imports)

It will suck as a spectator but I can't see us being able to buy a side to challenge in the short term.

So have the rules changed regarding when you can sign a player? Reports say clubs can't sign a player for 2016 until November of this year. I remember Easts signed Maloney before the 2011 GF for the 2013 season.

Agree, we will get the right mix with this approach, maybe centre, half back and prop imported, and we generally nurture what we've got for two years.
