I'd rather watch a team of different misfits go round next year than this year's ones, that's about all I'm hoping for in the off-season. Four or five new faces, even old faces like Glenn and Kahu would make a difference. Same shit different team is better than the same shit again.
Alex Glenn would be an upgrade on someone like young Papa surely, he's still like a headless chook on the rare occasions we break the line, far too green for what he's being asked to do.
Levi... at least he's specialist hooker, I've seen him do fantastic stuff but not so much lately, he can be the new Bully. I draw the line at Benny Muts though, he'd do well in Hull with Ligi. Rusty... you never know what you'll get with a loose cannon like that, the destroyer from the U20s or the fatass who left for his OE. Could be worth a shot, he can do what Lisone does only fatter.
We definitely had an affiliation with Wynnum Manly in Brisbane but that was back as far as 98/2000 from memory and well before the current Qld Cup format.Don't remember us having a QLD Cup side. Weren't we affiliated with Newton Jets for a little bit though?
Not sure tbh.
I appreciate your parable and you're probably right Wrighty but I'm trying to look at it with a half full glass with one eye on the reality of who's available and who we're likely to end up with, judging by the guys Kearney's managed to lure over so far to play for him. Tohu, Peta and Gerard Beale are light years ahead of the local contenders for their positions.Hi Worried to death,
In the 1980s copywriters for TV shows used to struggle for content and you would end up seeing the same dialogue lines on different shows, it was as if the copywriters would all watch other shows for ideas and when they heard a good one liner they would use it in their own show.
At one point the line "A change is as good as a holiday" appeared on about 15 different shows over a 6 month period or at least it seemed like that to me.
So I tried it one year. I changed scenery instead of taking a holiday and actually a change wasn't as good and I got tired in a hurry.
So change for changes sake doesn't work well. I think we should keep Papa one more year as he is young and could yet blossom.
And no one here really wants Alex Glenn unless the entire NRL comes down with AIDS and Alex is the last one standing.
