Is this guy going to recruit any new players?
For the past 2 seasons we have lost players and not gained anyone of note.
Does anyone seriously think this current roster is good enough to win a grand final, or even week 2 of finals.
I miss Flanno
Then I have good news and bad news for you

As Gus Gould has been banging on about, there’s not much out there recruitment wise.

Anyone who you do go after, you’ll will have to pay extreme overs because of the other vultures - Tigers, Dragons, Bulldogs. And that’s just ****s your cap up.

It’s actually not a bad time to have a settled squad.

There's not much out there because Gus has bought them all!

Jokes aside, who would u of taken out of their purchases?

Obviously Crichton, but again would have taken massive overs to get him here.

For our team, I'm actually happy not to get any more middling utility types for now. If we lose Tracey then sure, maybe. We could possibly have used Salmon for 2nd row depth. Otherwise if we can't get improvement out of our current squad, then any other affordable semi-decent players aren't going to do any better here either

Yeah Skull - I reckon he is planning some internal tweaks but would have liked to see a new recruit or two ..

We shouldn’t have to pay overs to get anyone at our club, we’ve been a fairly strong club since 2015

If we do have to do that, it means our club isn’t an attractive place to be which shouldn’t be the case

If we slip down the ladder again this year then yes 100% you’re right ; it will be on Fitz- hes had everything his way, this next season is where we see whether we actually have a great coach or just an overhyped media darling

100%. Into his 3rd year now. We seriously should not of extended this bloke for as long as we did until at least midway through this season.

If we miss the finals it will start to raise some serious questions.

Bomber held us in there with less.

I'm still backing (/hoping) we have a number of players well place to kick on though.

Yeah, coulda grabbed another Dugan, SJ or Moylan to placate the thirst for new additions.

Sht post because Flanno didn’t get to coach any of these players for long at all and don’t think he even got to coach SJ so you kinda missed the mark here

If you said coulda grabbed another Lewis, Barba, Ennis, Fifita, Bird, Bukuya, Maloney, Prior, Graham, Tagatese or Heihno etc than maybe your post would of made as much sense as you thought it did

If our defence doesn’t improve this season then I think we really need to look at one or two new assistant coaches.
