    Lachlan Coote maybe? I am just as confused as you are

        Plus a couple of waterside mansions from old mate the builder (using the NQ 'third party endorsement' loophole).

        LOL then they signed Kahu (Kiwi FB), Barba (Dally M + Australian FB) and Todd Carney to replace him. Their problem is they're all drunk on XXXX up there thanks to the 'property loophole'. This, they can sign whoever they want on whatever they want... but they don't spend any time thinking strategically or planning the squad they want.

        Even Todd Carney thought their beer was shyte and buggered off.

          And if we lose? Will it still be a good move?

            I'd prefer him in the 14.

              They gave his parents a house in Townsville as well.

                Yes, absolutely.

                Potential short term pain for long term gain. Think back to the Titans game last year where we rested our Origin stars after Origin 3.

                As Robbo said, we can't tread the same path as every previous defending Premier and expect a different outcome.

                  Get ready for the epic Robbo style run in to the finals! We'll likely only lose at most 1 or 2 more regular season games.

                  Just so long as we don't enter the finals on a huge winning run. I just feel as though it's a bad omen and didn't end well in 2014 or 2015.

                  Where as in 2013 and 2018 we had a couple of reset losses just before the finals, which I prefer.
                  In both our premiership years I believe we lost a couple in a row a few weeks before the finals. I would not be surprised if he had trained the hell out of them those weeks with a view to the big games.

                    I vaguely remember reading an article in 2016 that said we were going to offer him a 4 year deal, he would’ve been nice to have but I’m glad we’ve got Teddy now instead at FB and Keary at 5/8

                      Keary switches often during a game.

                        I think we need a centre in the off season.

                          Who's going to want to come and play second fiddle to Latrell and Joey?

                            Bmoz will retire after our GF win.

                                I remember about 10 years ago (might have been longer) Wayne Bennett said the best thing to happen to a premiership favourite leading into the finals was a loss in round 25 or 26 to wake them up.
