    Maloney, Elgey, Hodgkinson, Sandow and perhaps Carney left.

    And we'll need two. Forget about blooding new halves before their time.

    Take Hodkinson off there just for the fact he takes the line on like an eighty year old man.

      They're reporting that he will only consider leaving dogs for $750 k and over. Not worth it.

        Aren't we supposed to still be considering Albert Kelly as well?

        He's useless. I watch a lot of SL over here. It's reserve grade for the most part.

          We must get a goal kicker too.

          We need both a half and a five eighth, by next weekend if possible.

              I don't think we're going to buy any. Penns have written off this year, new coach and promote from within.

              I think we're silly to believe that the club are going to throw two untried players in the halves...although I would like them to spend up big in the forwards, and buy cheap(er) halves like Elgey and Kelly, than spend 750k + on crap like Hodkinson, I doubt that's there angle.

              I think the club will be looking to sign at least one experienced half to take pressure of the other lesser known. I agree with Dan, I think Elgey and Carney would be a good combination, or Elgey and (I hate to say it; Maloney)...I mean what else is there?

              To buy a guy like Hodkinson for 250k a year less than what we offered Foz and Daly, would be gutting. The silver lining in losing the halves was the cap money it opened up for us...if we go and spend up big on rubbish, then the positive trade off ceases to exist.

                  Albert Kelly and Elgey are the 2 I would consider for half back, if they were available, we could develop their potential. For 5/8 that is a tougher one. I expect Maloney to stay put at the chooks. Maybe we need to groom Littlejohn and give him a chance or do a swap with the worms and get Corey Norman here and send Foz early.

                  not sure why we signed little john if we aren't going to use him. no disrespect to hodko but signing him would be a backward step…can at least kick FGs!
                  Elgey could be a gun, particularly if Joey stays on. But he won't be a messiah - no one on the australian market is, Richie Myler won't come cheap but if JoeK can get his missus a deal on the footy show or ch 9 then we're in business. Also would help to sign future burgesses having another pom on the team.

                  thought little john did alright last year. Has Manaia Rudolph fully recovered??

                  Sam Williams from Canberra will be looking for a home as they will have Sezer & Austin next year.
