Annoying that Cowboys will be on the lookout for a fullback too now
Would have won Boogs - 2016, 2017, 2018

That is a downside of this. Cows may not go too hard for one as they are expected to pick up Holmes after his NRL journey. Morgan could move back there.

Now that JT is gone, i doubt it.
Hampton or TMM seem more likely.

You needed to see twitter to drive that home?

When will NRL fans learn that virtually zero people on their 3rd+ chance are worth it.

There was not a sniff (pun unintended) of trouble whilst Barba was at St Helens.

Bet he wishes he'd honoured his contract, now.

He was cleared wasn't he?

Seems a moot point anyway since Barba is going to be banned.

all players treated equally but the more talented you are the more equally you get treated

He was investigated by the police and nothing came of it. I don't have a problem with us signing anyone in those circumstances.

I think we've been incredibly unlucky how everything has panned out. Hayne getting into trouble. Barba getting banned. DWZ getting injured. I think each of these unrelated events will play a part in us being unable to secure a first grade full back that is looking for an opportunity. Clearly this is not helped by the paltry $ we can offer due to gross cap mismanagement. The result is that we can look forward to seeing Williams or Abbey in our 17 come round 1

We seem to have been unlucky for 3 years. I think it's more likely nobody wants to come to the club.

Why would you want a EDIT to the club ?
It’s taken a long hard effort to rebuild the Clubs culture so why in the world would you want to bring that **** to the Raiders ?? I think we should’ve sacked Wigjton.

As far as signings go. We had that year and a bit in 2015 that broke the streak.

At that time we did get 'unlucky' with Tedesco, Mansour, Proctor and Ennis.

Nothing wrong with the people, obviously, it's just a smaller than optimal catchment compared with the rest of the NRL
