Cool, title sounds better now.

Hopefully we clean out all the dead rats at the club.

This is what I reckon we should do..

Release
Steve Rapira
Carl Webb
Antonio Kaufusi
Manase Manuokafoa

Michael Bani
Grant Rovelli (he can play for Cutters without a Cowboys contract)
Ashley Graham
Steve Southern
Luke O'Donnell
Clint Amos

Sign
Sika Manu
Antonio Winterstein
Brent Tate

Ryan Williamson
Tariq Sims
James Graham? or another gun prop
Kalifa Faifai Loa
more players I can't think of

And something more like this..

1. Bowen
2. Winterstein
3. Tate
4. Tonga
5. Faifai Loa
6. Graham
7. JT
8. Scott
9. Payne
10. -
11. Manu
12. Mason
13. Bolton

14. Thompson
15. L. Ah Mau
16. Tamou
17. Hogan

Something like that is the team we have assembled so far.

The best thing with next season I see, is that the fact that Manuokafoa and Kaufusi were on pretty big cash, and we can use that cash to get the likes of Sika Manu and another really good prop.

I reckon Sims may get a run in the top team as well.

It's hard to pick our top team when frankly we have no idea who is and isn't going to be at the club next year, this is probably the most movement our roster has had since we entered the comp.

All I know is that our team next year is going to look nothing like our team this year, which frankly is quite a good thing.

^ Yeah, there is nothing wrong with that. I was just trying to make some realistic predictions on who I think we can/will sign. Apparently Wade Graham --> Cowboys is a done deal, but I'm not sure. Kalifa Faifai Loa would be a great acquisition too.

Next year is certainly looking pretty good with the young talent we are attempting to stock up on.

I wonder where he will head, he does the job and has impressed on his few outings. At any club, im sure a winger like him is needed.

Well the only club I have heard is interested is the Cowboys (but surely there are more) and he won't get a gig at the Dragons for a while probably.

I definitely think he is worth a 50k contract. Im sure he will attract interest in the coming weeks, maybe if the Dragons NYC team makes the finals.

At the moment I would be going with something like this:

1.Shannon Gallant
2.Willie Tupou/Kalifa Faifai Loa
3.Brent Tate
4.Willie Tonga
5.Antonio Winterstein
6.Matty Bowen
7.Johnathan Thurston
8.Matt Scott
9.Aaron Payne
10.James Tamou
11.Scott Bolton
12.Willie Mason
13.Luke O'Donnell

14.Arana Taumata/Wade Graham/Ray Thompson/James Segyaro
15.Dane Hogan
16.Tariq Sims
17.Leeson Ah Mau

OR

1.Matty Bowen
2.Willie Tupou/Kalifa Faifai Loa
3.Brent Tate
4.Willie Tonga
5.Antonio Winterstein
6.Wade Graham/Arana Taumata/Ray Thompson
7.Johnathan Thurston
14.Arana Taumata/Wade Graham/Ray Thompson/James Segyaro

I would like to see the Cowboys go hard for James Graham if hes going to come to Aus for 2011. Also any storm players would be a good pick up too, particularly Blair, Lima or Manu.

The clean out has not finished yet for the Cowboys I reckon. I can't wait to see who else they manage to sign. Just as long as it's not any more Broncos!

Hello people. Cowboys supporter here. I have an opinion on a couple of things relating to our club:

1 - Is Neil Henry the right man for taking our club forward? I must say I'm starting to have my doubts. We finished down the wrong end of the table last season and this season we will be down the bottom once again. The team has showed no signs of improving this year. Heading into 2010 I believed this squad was more then capable of making the top 8. Looking at our squad it has an impressive balance of youth and experience. What has gone wrong then???

2 - Possible 2011 team:

1. Bowen
2. Winterstein
3. Tate
4. Tonga
5. O'Neill (off contract and he is from NQ)
6. Graham
7. JT
8. Scott
9. Payne
10. Graham (sign him up asap)
11. Mason
12. Manu
13. Bolton
Bench:
14. Taumata
15. Thompson (off contract and with Canberra looking to the future he could come cheap)
16. Tamou
17. Ah Mau

3 - Finally a big well done to Peter Parr and the rest of our management. At least they have gone about trying to change our squad and giving us new hope for 2011. My only doubts is it will take time for this "new squad" to gel and it could turn into another rebuilding season next year. My only other concern is our depth could be a big problem after all these players have been moved on.

^ Good to have another Cowboys fan here. Smile

1. I have faith he can, but I'm not convinced. He has proved he can do the job. If he can not deliver at least moderate success next year he is gone for sure. To be fair to him he has overpaid hacks and players that can't play for shit and I will give him the benefit of doubt for now.

2. Pretty good side but I've been thinking with Kaufusi (250k), Manoukafoa (200k) and Webb (350k) that we will be able to sign a few more stars. James Graham would be a target hopefully, as would Sika Manu and one more guy who is awesome

3. The first good step by Peter Parr. Have been very critical of him and his job. I have no doubt that this new squad next year is a step in the right direction based on our future. Most of the hacks will be gone (if not all, if there are some they will not get close to first grade) and it's looking good IMO.

Me too, he looked like a promising talent but they hardly gave him a go. Would like him to stay, but it's looking highly unlikely he will.

It's really exciting hearing all of these options that the Cowboys are looking at. It's so good to see a cleanout.
