No Paddy escapes on this occasion, but I suspect Con & Mick will somehow get him in amongst it.

Jon Ralph writes crap like the rest of them but his story does have a little substance to it.

But no one has left our club of any substance for ages now and we have re-signed heaps of good and young talent. Plus we have recruited plenty of players to the club in the last 3-4 years e.g. Carlisle, Koby Stevens, Jack Steele, N. Brown of recent for example.

Just because we didn't land Kelly, Martin or Fyfe this year doesn't mean players don't want to come to the Saints. They didn't want to play at any other club actually and re-signed.

I'm terrible at cryptic, why don't you give us a few clues... or even better, tell us what you are talking about?

It was an opinion piece actually regarding how the Saints have all this coin but no-one wants to go to the Saints. Very unfair IMO but he is a journalist so its job to stir up some crap.

If that's the case then all clubs are in trouble because nobody's going anywhere.

Maybe the saints are being discerning and not throwing away valuable draft picks and money on average players. Ralph has never been a fan of the saints and his stance shows his ignorance of the situation. HAs he considered the fact that other clubs have made approaches to players who subsequently nominated them, offering ridiculous amounts of money? Motflop $600K a year? Wasn't worth jack a week ago. Rockliff $700 K for each of 4 years? Glad it's Port and not us. Who else of high quality is there?

Far from them not wanting us, maybe it's us that doesn't want them, Ralphy, and so far I'm backing the club in its decision not to pursue GOPs at over inflated prices. Watts? Not a bad player but has massive attitude problems. If Melbourne doesn't want him, why would we? SMith, Tomlinson and Haynes are worth a look, but 7 & 8 represents the best position any club is in. Don't lose your nerve, Ameet. We've got what they all want, not the other way around. Build it and they will come. Make the right offer and they will come.

Jack Steele said we'd get Josh Kelly in 2 years. There's a chance he was joking... But I'm choosing to believe him :).
