So now Xavier Coates has signed with Storm (because obviously Carr isn’t quick enough???!!) who does that displace who we should pursue. Hyne, Carr?

Yeah I forgot he was going there. I bet he can’t wait haha Dogs building a team from the outside in.

Storm seem to put a lot of importance in having quality wingers.

Staggs is a good footballer and a destructive player. But I can’t see him becoming a dominant 5/8th. Certainly not in the game management skills.

This is a classic junior football coach mentality... take your best player, stick him where he touches the ball most and win?
Yeah best of luck with that Kevvie

Big fan of Staggs but i've not seen ANYTHING to suggest he's capable of playing in the halves to a level that Simple Jack on a bad day can.

Staggs to 6 is only good if they nab Reynolds.
I was certain Reynolds wasn’t leaving Sydney but there is mail the Broncos are offering more than Cronulla to pinch him...

One advantage of Staggs at 6 is he won't get exposed defensively as much if he's one in. Last year he was the worst defensive player a team with the worst defense. It was overlooked because he was such a weapon in attack. Other than that I can't see any reason to play him in the halves. Such a damaging ball runner out wide, he'll be neutered in the middle.

You reckon?
I don't know about that. Most teams set moves are specifically designed to isolate and target the half, as they're typically the worst defenders in the team. If he's exposed less it will be marginal at best imo. Though i guess structurally teams can use a strong backrower and centre to help insulate a bad defensive half, which you cant really at centre.

I sure am interested to see how it goes though! Long may Kevvie reign :woot:

Halves often get targeted because they can't tackle. Staggs is OK (not great) in this area. Decision making is where he was failing and that's the most important aspect of defending at centre. He was worse than BJ in that department. Of course moving into 5/8 he could become the next Blake Austin and throw everybody out of whack. :lol:

Coates at $425K a season is a bargain...Melbourne are schooling teams on cap management if this goes through...

He's been turning out some absolute duds this year but I'd imagine that turns around with a huge pay increase and a heap of talent to feed him.

What’s everyone’s thoughts if Williams is home sick we sign Shaun Johnson as half back. Good kicking game, goal shooter and plays right side!

He is currently pursuing Super League options

Players want to go there, so they get players on the cheap. There's nothing other clubs can do

I would have thought getting lowballed by a big club would build resentment, but obviously not

We gotta go out and get Hynes. He’s great. Wants to be a starting fullback. CNK to the centres and first FB replacement when Hynes isn’t available.

make an offer to the knights for mitchel pearce. If possible both hodgo and G willy to go to make space in the cap. 2 years all in much like Roosters and Cooper Cronk.

Bellamy's considering his future yeah?

A club in relentless pursuit of success would throw the **** bank at him.

If we’re serious we should, move Ricky into a higher club role. Just look at this new generation Melbourne team. Still blowing quality opposition off the field.

Even better showcase for a team that's incredibly well drilled and honed on both sides of the ball

Hynes would be great, but in our current setup he could be made to look like Bronx Goodwin

Maybe Johnson for 22 ? Surely wouldn't be as bad as Orford?
And dufty or hynes..as a fullback, and move cnk to the centres, ...
Schneider looks the goods in our reserves once Sam Williams goes, so halves depth will be a thing very soon
