    Chanel Matu'tia has been released, retiring from top level footy. We also signed a young centre from penrith then canberra

    Is Sione the only one left now? As good as he was in the back row last year, I cant see him having an extraordinarily long career if he stays in the back row.

    16 from last year's top 30 have been let go for next season, holy dooley.

    Has anyone seen Christian Hazard play? I looked up some highlights on youtube, looks pretty quick.
    Looking up brent naden, the main thing thats there is him going the length then dropping it as he gets tackled putting the ball down lol. Hes a big cnt tho.

    Pat's still there too.
    The article I read also mentioned Sione is seeing a specialist regarding the number of concussions he had last season and could be forced into early retirement

    Wouldnt shock me with the amount of head knocks he has had. He was going really well but just doesnt have the size to play in the back row with the way he plays especially with how young he is.

    If its true, I wouldnt mind seeing him take a year or 2 off.

    I still find it crazy that in the NRL a bloke can get a concussion one week and then be playing against 5/6/7 days later. Absolutely crazy.

    Looks like the Knights have got Pearce which I think is great.

    Ponga
    Ross
    Moga
    SMat (I think he needs to move back to center)
    Kenny Dowell
    Watson
    Pearce
    D Saifiti
    Levi
    Lillyman
    Buhrer
    Fitzgibbon
    Guerra(I thought he had his best games in the middle last year)

    Griffen/Lamb (I think Lamb could play hooker)
    Barnett
    Esese
    Heighington/Saifiti

    Lots of young guys from last year as depth

    I’m starting to get sick of the Knights coming in and poaching all these players the Broncos and Roosters and Cowboys have developed and put time into. Trying to buy a premiership. Well, a finals berth anyway.

    It’s quite frustrating isn’t it, following the Broncos model is foolish. I’d prefer we copied someone that’s had some success in the last ten years.

    Rumour going around that Jennings may be signing with the knights. Cant see it happening, prob just someone tossing it up assuming hayne will take Jenning's centre spot.

    My history of women would suggest the opposite.

    Let's go all in for Crichton - he's a star of the future. Give him good money and he could be our captain for the next ten years.

    Yeah I saw that. I like Jenko but I wouldn't be devasted if he was released, would free up even more cash as he is on more than Hayne and we could have a red hot crack at Chrighton.

    That said, I doubt it's true.

    Totally agree we should go after Crichton. Hes a deadset superstar, you would be happy to release any of the current back rowers or 2 for him to sign.
