He's had an average season, not poor, as he's not mouthed off by the press and BBC/Sky presenters as playing badly, he's un-noticed, (AVERAGE) :)

The atmosphere within the JJB as become poor over the past few seasons, it needs to change. Turn our ground into a place were teams are scared of coming.


We need to start playing better rugby first. How's a fan supposed to "get up" for a game when you walk to the ground unconfident about beating a Salford side we beat the week before. Noble also needs to fook off, that would give the fans a huge lift.

6 - New Signing
7 - T. Leuluai
9 - Riddell

20 minutes into the game

6 - S. Tomkins
7 - New Signing
9 - T. Leuluai

Number One priority to us, would be D. Lockyer, yes he’s a 6, the guy could play 6,7 and have a half decent shot of playing well at 1 still with the knowledge the guy has of the game.

M. Orford comes in at a close 2nd, proven winner, great attitude to the sport, great kicking and passing game, proven the ability of playing under pressure.

B. Kimmorley is a no, no at his age and current standard.

B. Finch is an interesting one, a player who walks from a club, do we want that sort of player? Will he leave Storms if they don’t sign anyone might sign another deal. He is a very good player, NSW quality.

This is really not a great idea. Moving your half backs about in the match is a recipe for lack of consistency.

Further, what makes you think Lockyer is going to be playing at 7? He is a 6, or a fullback. Not a 7.

Why is Kimmorley a no no? He is having a great season with the Bulldogs. But I guess you have not watched the NRL in any great depth.

It's inconsistent until them players are use to doing it regular, like our current team, can't consistently do the basics :roll:

The qualities needed as a 7, are by far covered in Lockyer's CV, he'd have no problems playing that role.

Kimmorley yes a no no, a great season is abit over the top isn't it? I watch as much NRL as I can, but I can't watch it all the time.

How do you know that Lockyer can play at scrum half to the required standard when he has not played it before at a high level? This is just daft! If you want a stand off, buy Lockeyer. If you want a scrum half, do not buy a stand off! Pretty simple.

If you have not, by your own admission, seen much of Kimmorley this year playing for the Dogs, how can you cast a serious judgement?

Many moons have passed and still no signed deal at Brisbane

Show me a recent link of Brett K to SL. He's a no simple as, no need to explain.

As for playing Lockyer at 7, after many years of watching the guy play the sport at the top level, I feel, as I suppose many will on here, he ould perform the role of scrum half with ease.

Lockyer despite having dodgy knees could still do a job in superleague, he isn't a flash in the pan sort of NRL player who would fade into insignificance he would rule the roost and the Lockyer factor would propel us into the top 3. If we were in for a prop they would come for slightly less if they had the chance to play with Lockyer.

6- Lockyer
7- Leuluai

14- S.Tomkins

Also Morley and LMS.
