    To play devil's advocate ... Lillyman and Matulino have a fuckload of games between them and it's not doing us much good now. Gavet (more experience than his cap suggest), Harris (Storm-tested Maturity, Rep Player) and Mannering (the ultimate professional) would have enough experience to guide the ship.

    If they re-sign Lillyman and don't replace Matulino with a first tier Prop, I will be pretty disappointed desu.

    If they let Lillyman go and don't replace Matulino that would be even worse.

    Yeah but notice the ones that havent played many games are actually good wait till they get a fair few more games under there belt if you look at previous years we've had good forwards that have had plenty of game time that havent done the job if we dont sign a forward we will probz resign lilyman and for that dragons game didn't both the brothers play in that case their's the experience for ya

    Nup, Pat Sipley wasn't even contracted to the Warriors in 2016.

    You seem confident in the personal we have in the propping department but it's worth noting that these guys your putting your stocks in are largely fringe first graders, the likes of Vete, Sao, Bunty and even Gavet up until recently.

    Granted they've been not too bad over the last month but bare in mind they haven't beaten a top 8 side in that time, we're in the origin period and we've yet to enter the last quarter of the season when the whips are cracking and we traditionally fall over.

    We've got a bottom 8 pack and unless we recruit sufficiently in the forwards for next season I don't expect much too change tbh.

    As a supporter I've been off the cool-aid for a while now and rejoining the "faith conga train" to dance along like a brainwashed evangelist I've found doesn't help the club lift itself out of mediocrity.

    Faith is inaction and I'd rather the club we're aware that many of their long time supporters are feeling apathetic towards them so lifting their game is paramount and that includes recruiting a balanced side that can give the comp a shake every year.

    The only positive thing about this is they don't seem to be prepared to pay overs. I can stand being in the bottom 8 with a bottom 8 salary cap. I would hate to be a Bulldogs fan, bloody expensive team and coach and even below the Warriors on the table.

    If you had the power and all players were off contract, who would you keep for next season?

    I've only tried to include players who have played FG for us and aren't already confirmed as leaving. If there's a player on the list who's already gone next year, could the Mods please remove them.
