I think they’ll be around the mark yes.
But this is now 2 years they were highly rated and have fallen away come september.
as you guys have mentioned they keep levering top end talent.
the older guys they keep bringing in are becoming past their prime, and not able to carry them to the next level.
mumford is gone (i believe) which is a driving factor.
They are getting found out for lacking defensive pressure, seeing most of their kids have never had to implement that side of the game, due to out and out talent.
they are on the edge imo, and could just as easily tip over the wrong way
the only thing that is keeping some of the legit high end talent their atm is the allure of a premiership, once that fades, probably within 2 years if they don’t win it, the high end talent will walk.
money can set you up no doubt, but i’m guessing they want to be remembered, and 5 thousand odd crowds in the backwaters of sydney isn’t going to get you that.
