#83

#84

Was just writing
5 heppell


#85

Jonovdp and kingofthehill…

Report for torture


#86

Still upset that we passed on his best mate. Those two together had chemistry.


#87

Stringer will def go #5 now I think especially he wore 7 at Bendigo and 9 at the kennell, would’ve liked to see McKenna get the upgrade

Smith 4 Stringer 5 Saad 42 as posted by someone earlier


#88

4 Smith
5 Stringer
20 Saad


#89

4 Smith
5 McKenna
39 Stringer
42 Saad


#90

4: Stringer
5: McKenna
20: Smith
42: Saad


#91

21- Dyson Heppell


#92

I think we should ask Jobe who he would pass 4 onto and go with that (assuming they accept it) - I think he will go Saad

I would go Smith with 5 - I think Stringer should avoid the number with this history and think Dev seems like he has the confidence to make the number his own

Assuming Jerret leaves I think 20 is a good number for Stringer and double digits would look good on the back of the package - good to give him a number with no recent history

I would only offer McKenna an upgrade and I would offer him 31 (checking that Fletch is ok)

Leave everyone else


#93

I can’t believe this hasn’t been mentioned yet, but it’s obvious Stringer should get 17.


#94

You mean your puns?


#95

Maybe we should abandon generations of tradition and “romance” and use the Rugby approach of wearing the number allocated to your starting position in the named team.

(*ducks, swerves, shimmies and runs away)


#96

Of course


#97

Remember 24-Stanton?


#98

Stringer gets 5 I reckon.

Would be excellent for future marketing, “5tringer”.

Smith 4
Saad 42


#99

This is how it might well play out I think. Would like to see McKenna get 4 though.

Still, best wait to see if any other players get the Tijuana and what other numbers become available.


#100

I like the idea of Saad getting #24, since it is an upgrade to 42 but also has a link in being the inverse. Plus it’s been awhile since we’ve really seen it out on the park. And I like the Misiti connection.

This is an interesting one because #4 and #5 are both pretty important… while our key recruits seem to be the most logical choices for them, I admit to maybe feeling like those numbers would be better suited to players we drafted and developed ourselves. I don’t think #5 would have quite the same meaning to me if we gave it to a player we traded for.


#101

It’s going to be a tough sell trying to include Stringer in any marketing given his recent negative publicity. Might have to wait until after he helps us win a premiership… or two.
