So with supposedly 11 players injured - 2 of our overseas players still couldn't make the run on side and where sat on the bench !!!! INCLDUING OUR NEW WONDERFUL SIGNING

that is the problem right there - what other club gets so Little input from the overseas signings.


Time for everyone of them to go except for Fifth and maype topou . including Miller who has been shocking to say the least.

Being on the bench does not mean you are not as good.
Catch up Bojo. The impact off the bench thing has been going for a good 10/15 years.

I like what Tanginoa has shown so far and think he will be good value.
Fifita and Tupou are very good quality and shouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

I’ve never been impressed by Randell, taking his injury prone record out of the equation, I don’t think he brings enough to warrant an overseas spot.

Miller is a tougher decision, we need a footballer/game controller/tactician at half back and Miller isn’t any of those. He’s a running threat and feeds off the scraps of breaks and attacking kicks but he doesn’t control or dictate games. Someone like Drinkwater would have been a better fit for this Wakefield squad.

Arona has been great for us and we’ll worth his place in the team for the past few seasons. I do think it’s time to let him go though and give Jordan Crowther the chance to fill the 13 shirt on a long term basis.

Pauli hasn’t cut it and needs to leave, he was a gamble worth taking but it hasn’t paid off for whatever reason.

Time to refresh the squad and look for higher quality than what’s leaving, maybe even sign 2 rather than 3 and offer better money to get players with more class.

I agree with all that except I'd still keep Miller and use the 7 as the organiser, whoever that may be.
The 13 looks like being Wester an which will release an overseas spot if we let Arona go.

Didn’t a one year extension get triggered for Arona? 100% should be retained, absolute work horse

Completely agree with this, to me he's the glue holding the team together. Massively underrated and never gives less than 100%.

So you crave to be taken seriously then you post that. PT seems willing to defend you but for me that’s not opinion it’s pure trolling.
