2011 looks like a promising year for the cowboys from the looks of the signings. Its good to see we are getting rid Antonio Kaufusi and Manuokafoa. They was all big pay no play. I'm not a big fan of Peter Parr but i think he pulled it off on this one.

1. Bowen
2. Winterstein
3. Tate
4. Tonga
5. Graham
6. Taumata
7. Thurston
8. Scott
9. Payne
10. ???
11. Mason
12. Bolton
13. ???

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

If they pick up Sika Manu and another prop forward, there squad could look pretty good. Solid halves, Taumata with good flare, experienced centres with wingers that can finish. The make of that forward pack is solid, would be good to see LOD stay though. Hogan is an up and comer, while Tamou & Ah Mau will be amongst it too.

For that 10 and 13 spots I would like them to sign Sika Manu (who they are interested in) and Jeremy Smith (who they are talking with this week). If they can pick up both of these players and then re-sign Mason, that would strengthen their forward pack so much.

Tariq Sims will be a great signing IMO and I think Wade Graham (who they made an offer to), Blake Leary (who they declared interest in) and Kalifa Faifai Loa (who they also declared interest in) would be some great depth and signings for the future.

It makes you think why would players sign with us based on how we have been in the last 3 years...

I think the opportunity to play alongside JT could attract a few players. Maybe to be close to family, could have played a big decision for Tate and Winterstein.

But the fact we have epically failed in the last 3 years says something...

It hasn't stopped players in the past. What about Burgess and Taylor signing with Souths for example. Or the Doggies making all of those massive signings after getting the spoon.

At the end of the day, money is the main factor in signing players, things like family and lifestyle definitely influence it but money is the main factor IMO.

NQ have plenty of money in the cap to throw at players, so I'd expect we'll sign a few more good players.

We are firmly in the running for Jeremy Smith and Kalifa Faifai Loa. We are looking to sign them in a package deal. Good signings if Jeremy Smith can stay on the park. Even if we get these two, I still expect Sika Manu or a couple of others to sign

Johnathan Thurston has nerve problems in his feet.

NORTH Queensland's captain Johnathan Thurston will put his end-of-season Australian No. 7 jumper on the line as he continues to carry injury for his Cowboys, who are already out of finals contention.

Any update on this? You would think with the possible signing on Dallas Johnson would mean the Cowboys couldn't sign one of Manu or Smith.

We signed Kalifa Faifai Loa. But I doubt we will get Smith. I still think we can Manu, if not him another good forward.

And we didn't get Wade Graham so thats an extra 200k we set aside for him to spend.

DJ is gonna take a paycut to stay at the Cows till the end of 2013 too

Money wise I think we could, by my estimations anyway.

Players Gone or Going.

Manuakafoa 150k
Kaufusi 200-250k

Rapira 100k
J. Williams 100k

O'Donnell 350k
Webb

Malone 50k
Geia 50k
Rovelli 50-100k
Steve Southern 200k
Graham 100-150k
Harris 100-150k


There
is no way in hell Re-sigining JT and Mason and signing Tate and
Winterstein will take up all that. There's more than half a mill worth
of cap in the two bolded players alone.

Minus from that say
250k for Tate, 150K for Winterstein, an extra 200K for top ups to Mason
and say an extra 100k for top ups for JT, that's only 700K gone, so
potentially another 1M to spend, which is a lot to spend in this day
and age.

By my estimations from that we still have probably at least 1.1M to spend for next season.

Say if we get DJ on 250K that's another 850K to spend, although I'd hope we get another few props as we seem to have let quite a few go, so you may be right, perhaps only one more high profile backrower/lock.

Remember a couple of years back when Nate Myles wanted to join the Cowboys. If he still has that desire and still plenty of room left in the cap, Cowboys should get him.

He's contracted with the Roosters until the end of 2012 though.....

Nah player I think we should sign, somewhat out of left field, is Ryan Tandy, only signed a 6 month contract with the Dogs so is still available for next season.

hmm Ryan Tandy possibly, would be cheap too. But I know Salford want him. I haven't heard anything regarding J. Smith or Sika Manu so I'm not sure whats goin on at the moment regarding them. Doubt we will get Smith tbh but I still think we will get Manu
