Hunt is a prop. Need him fitter and in the team and a quality second rower. Shreb, Couchman or a quality import.

Don't you mean 'Hooper' as in 'Sam Hooper' rather than 'Cooper'?

Otherwise I like this team.

You want Hunt ahead of Coric. Does Coric play anywhere other than prop.
Prop rotation of Coric, Lawrie, Hunt and ******* sounds good. Maybe JDB will be a prop in 2 years.

Either way, both Coric and Hunt are props. I rate Hunt but he needs to work on his fitness in a big way.

2 utility players on the bench? Don't like it. One is enough.

  1. Treigh Stewart (same age as Sloan but has pushed Sloan out of fullback in NSW Cup and reported to be playing really well. He can't get picked in first grade this year because he isn't on a development contract. )
  2. Lobb
  3. Lomax (vc)
  4. Suli (How to fit Lomax, Suli and the two Feagai's in the team? I think the Feagai's are centres, not wingers.)
  5. Feagai (I guess both Feagai's will be playing elsewhere but don't know who the other winger will be.)

  7. Sullivan/Herring

  15. Couchman
  16. Coric

I know it's wishful thinking but this is the team I hope for, for the last 4 rounds. Sims, Rava and Suli are out for the season.

McGuire is leaving. Isn't there anyone else to take his place? Not Woods. He's also on his way out.

DRAGONS


BURNING ISSUE:

The Dragons are playing a dangerous game of wait and see, dragging their fans into 2023 without any transparency or clear vision on how they overcame just two finals appearances since 2012. They have instability among the coaching staff with more key members of Anthony Griffin’s staff about to follow assistants Matt Head and Peter Gentle out the door. The Dragons hierarchy are also giving Griffin little confidence he will be retained beyond the 2023 season after making an approach to Cameron Ciraldo, only days before he committed to Canterbury. Dean Young, Shane Flanagan, Ben Hornby and Nathan Brown are all viewed as possible replacements should Saints make a call on Griffin. An out of shape salary cap with massive money tied-up in the forward pack, also means the roster will remain largely unchanged next year.

COACH CONTACT STATUS:
Anthony Griffin (2023).

LOCKED IN:
Zac Lomax (2026), Jayden Sullivan (2025), Moses Suli (2024), Tyrell Sloan (2024), Junior Amone (2024), Jayd’n Sua (2024), Jack Bird (2024), Jack de Belin (2024), Cody Ramsey (2024), Francis Molo (2024), Moses Mbye (2023), Ben Hunt (2023).

UNSIGNED:
Poasa Faamausili, Jackson Ford, Jack Gosiewski, Tautau Moga

NRL RICH 100:
Ben Hunt (3, $1.1m), Moses Mbye (14, $900k), Jack de Belin (32 ($750k), 49 Zac Lomax (49, $700k), Tariq Sims (64, $650k), Jaydn Su’A (76, $600k), Jack Bird (79, $550k), Moses Suli (88, $550k), Josh McGuire (99, $500k), Francis Molo (101, $500k)

I guess "unsigned" means don't have a contract elsewhere and not retiring. Surely Macca can't stay. He's played 2 years too long!

I guess Mbye won't get a new offer. Clubs can start trying to poach him from November 1 but it seems no one is interested. Wonder why that is.

The rich list should leave us in good stead as far as the salary cap next year. Only Hunt on really big money. Sims and McGuire gone. Mbye on nowhere near that much as far as it's costing us. Bird and Molo aren't earning their keep but they are far down the list.

According to that, could be in a much worse place as far as the cap goes. Could be in a position to launch a high profile raid. The NRL still haven't signed off on Angus Crighton's contract. Salary cap issues a the Rorters. I presume their very skillful accountants will fix it.

We need to entice a good young prop the backs as seen yesterday especially in regards to Moga are too slow. If you want speed then next season bite the bullet Ramsey to wing Sloan to fullback from game 1 with Lomax, Suli and Rav playing outside Amone and Hunt, Sullivan hooker, Bird, Su'A JDB locking the scrum we are a chance especially under Flanagan we need that prop.

You mean one yet to play first grade?

That was ridiculous! Slowest winger I've ever seen!
