    dean pay it is

    rumour mill

    Bmoz to leave
    lichaa to then stay
    Dymock to leave


    i feel for dymock but he was dessies main assistant for years, i think we need a completely fresh change and while he may deserve a HC gig here, i just think it may have ended in more of the same


    Pay's comments around mbye make me think fullback may be the plan, pay's talked about his broken field running more then anything, i really do think its worth a try, hoppa to right centre, no brenko lee gifting away 3 tries a game

    Maybe it gives cleeland a go in the halves aswell

    Bmz to stay
    Abbey to go
    Clay preist coming in
    Lichaa to stay

    i get the feeling we may see mbye at fullback based on pay's coment around him, plus it gives us a reason to leave brenko in ressies

    My 17

    1. Mbye
    2 bmoz
    3 jmoz
    4 hoppa
    5 montoya
    6. Cleeland/nu brown/frawley
    7. Foran
    8. Tolman
    9. Lichaa
    10. Woods
    11. Jackson
    12. Elliot/RFM
    13. Klemmer

    14. Elliot/RFM
    15. Fualolo
    16. Cleeland/nu brown/frawley
    17. Tualau/priest/eastwood

    i'd prefer cleeland in the 6, nu brown on the bench and tualau getting a 20 minute high impact stint

    frawley wouyld still play 6-8+ games that foz will likely end up missing


    i still couldn't have us in the 8, i've really come around on the woods signing but it really makes me hate the tolman re-signing

    woods and tolman in the same team is just so meh, the forward pack is ok but the balance in the pack is wrong, its all about the grind that won't be enough, need more impact guys i think which is why i think tualau has to be there off the bench

    Pay is a great decision, he will have them in the top 8 for sure. He'd of got Raidersto Top 8 if he was head coach there.

    Mbye > fullback looking like a sure thing

    certainly not naive enough to thing its guranteed to be a success but its a change worth trying. i genuinely do think he'll suit the role fairly well

    Re suli, obviously has some worth ethic issues but at 19, he has time to fix that, apperantly the ankle injury will hold him out till round 7 but given the injury and worth ethic issues to date, i don't tihnk he makes our backline with everyone fit anyway but it was important to get someone on the books as i can see either of the morris boys being here next year.

    based on comments made by pay, team is shaping up something like this

    1. Mbye
    2 bmoz
    3 jmoz
    4 hoppa
    5 montoya
    6. Cleeland/nu brown/frawley (probs frawley)
    7. Foran
    8. Klemmer
    9. Lichaa
    10. Woods
    11. Jackson
    12. RFM/Martin
    13. Elliot

    14. martin/RFM
    15. Fualolo
    16. Cleeland/nu brown/frawley (probs brown)
    17. Tolman


    Like klemmer going back to prop, he did a good job at lock but when he plays for rep teams, there is a much more quality in the shorter type of stints he plays at prop, i think 45-50 minutes of quality will be better then 60+ minutes of solid footy


    elliot has a bit of finucane in him, hopefully playing solid time at lock can bring that out of him

    Finucane is probably still the move that hurts the most, we've made several bad ones but i could never at any point in time defend that, always hated it, god i wish we still had him


    regarding the upcoming season, i think we'll be competitive, quite a few of the others teams fans who also missed the finals think we'll be worse them but we'll probably still have a 10-11 win season, but i can't see us getting that extra 2-3 to get into the finals based on what we know, only guys like foran, lichaa and mbye being better then their most recent seasons can sway that

    i'm not really sure who i wanted to win yesterday, i think Dib had done alot of good for the club which was quickly forgotton but there is no doubt there have been failings all over the place over the last 3 years and he certainly played a lead role in all of that

    its a pretty fresh start for the club tho

    we go into the next season with a

    * new chairman
    * New board
    * New CEO
    * New Coach
    * new captain
    * New halves

    its been a complete top to bottom change up

    Did the Rooster's ask for their sombrero back ? The cap pressure at the dogs was well documented, they finally shed players and the NRL rubber stamps Woods & Foran's contracts. Then they sign Suli on $400K and people joke about the cap pressure, now there's rumours that Tolman's being pushed out due to cap pressure.

    General question
    Is the cap only measured at a point in time ? eg. end of season. And that's why the NRL wont allow this player to sign but once you get under there's no question till the next audit ?
