Re: Dunamis Lui

A Lui player swap for a position of need would be extremely valuable to us if possible. Dunamis deserves a 2 year deal somewhere after this season, I hope a great club player like him gets it. Something like McGuire going to Dragons, Lui to Cowboys and us getting a Dragons player may work. I don't ...

I'm starting to come to grips with the now fact that we've just become a boring, grinding side. Plain and simple.

JHC did we not win? Clearly there was a game plan to stay away from the sidelines, take the hit ups, not risk 7 tackle sets and basically make no mistakes. This worked perfectly in the first half. There's no actual reason why it shouldn't have in the second apart from dropping the ball, stripping it...

If we lose an outside back I would put Wighton there and Hodgson to 7 with Havili at 9. Wests have a decent team but our forwards and bench in particular should monster them. If our centres have good years than the team will be in a prelim again. That was my first thought. But then we've rejigged o...
