    With the team looking strong across most positions the one area of concern is the backrow. With the likely candidates being Symonds, Buhrer and Mateo it seems short of the class across the other positions. Rumours obviously have us linked to Cordner and if true I wouldn't complain although I wonder if for the money he would command we split it across two outstanding up and comers. Given Merrin got a reported 750k a year Cordner who is IMO a better player would command similar money.

    Given contracts mean little in the NRL these days I think dangling this money at Bryce Cartwright and Tepai Moeroa would complete our team. Bryce obvious links to our Head of Recruitment and the fact the Panfers won't win anything in the near future should make 400k and a chance at a Premiership enticing. Moeroa, simply playing for the Speels who have wheeled in Beau Scott in his position would surely be enough but a 400k payday as well surely would seal it.

    Both these players are apart of Daleys blues in waiting, both have excelled at junior Kangas level with Moeroa in the PMs XIII. I see these two as the next big things at 20 and 21 with huge rep futures ahead but without the price tag of an established SOO and Austtalan player.

      I think we will be ok for next year but if we could pickup Cordner for the right money Ill be happy!

        Fatalia-mariner from the Warriors is the one we should be after.

            I think we're gunna be ok in the backrow in 2016. Hopefully Buhrer has an injury free year: he was amongst our best until his knee popped last year (and was great in '14 as well until the same blood thing happened!)

              Why would Taupau and Myles change positions next year ?

              Add Cordner to this & it is tough & balanced.
              Definitely agree with the opening thread about the young Parra backrower Moroa?? a potential gun wasted at Parramatta.
              As for 2016
              Kapow
              Mateo
              Buhrer
              Knight
              Brown
              Leary as the Buhrer backup

              Mark my words on Knight
              Will be in the top grade in 2016
              Will be a dominant forward by 2018

              As for players to bring in....Cordner is super & like the Moroa call, but don't be surprised to see a move for young Cartright also

                Knight could be an early bloomer for 2016 feathered friend

                    Who the hells Tepai & when did Cartwright tell you he would not be influenced by ex Penrith staff including his own dad??
                    Maybe it was Tom Wright in an interview on youtube.

                    We thought Foz would not leave us either . Manly breast fed him and made him the player he is today and look what happened . In the world of NRL anything is possible . A change of coaching staff . A change in contract dollars and maybe just a change

                      With the reduced interchange I think that Liam Knight will see a bit of game time next season.

                        Haha yeah I think we have a pretty good line into Penrith guys if we want them. If Bryce was a fan of Barrett the he'll be here if we want him. Gould just pushed their 5 year plan out to 8 which isn't going to make you confident especially when Bozo put a 6 month plan into action and finished it lol

                                  Maybe his uncle is a pretty close relation at a guess??
                                  Also Barrett had a bit to do with him.
                                  Then add in the simple common sense factor I put to you B2015....being 100% diplomatic, what club for similar money would you choose??
                                  Manly or Penrith??

                                  I said this in the mid season, but Shaun Lane from the bulldogs would be fantastic! Absloloute beast 21 6ft6 110KG off contract next season, get one up on the dogs and take him and klemmer.
