    Never know.... Newie might be forcing us to pay big coin for bird then come in with good offers for say Prior and Capewell that we can't possibly match. Been done before.

    Sure Ricky is doing cartwheels knowing he had the best back line player despite getting thrashed by 30 odd.

    If ever a point went over your head, this was it.

    Yeah...Nah...just getting a bit bored with going around in circles with this one. Wighton had a solid game in a badly beaten side. Bird made a solid debut at fullback. Had one try disallowed and was cut down 2 or 3 times within a meter or two of the line. On another day he could have been like Wade celebrating a hat-trick. Opinions are like arse-holes....everyone has one. Imo Chad is worth 500-600 max and Bird is worth 700-800 max. While I hope we retain both I also hope we don't pay Dragons or Knights money retaining either.

    Like your house, they are both only worth what people are willing to pay. Whether he's got the world fooled or not...Bird will attract more money.

    Yeah that's all good mate. I just don't remember.

    Anyways hopefully we can keep them both without paying overs.

    If our halves are Bird/Maloney last year and not Maloney/Townsend, we don't win the comp.

    Everything. Townsend is a premiership winning halfback. Whilst I know the guy has his issues, he deserves a little more credit.

    If I had to keep Bird or Townsend, I'd keep Townsend.

    Agree

    Bird & Townsend are both potential match winners imo.

    Bird is getting there at a younger age but i reckon they will both prove their worth this year.

    Probably agree, he's a genuine half.

    Bird may end up a good fullback (or lock) but it's not for certain. Let's see how he goes at the back against a good kicking game like the Cowboys or Storm.

    Exactly cardy...

    They will be spending 1.5M a year on a FB and a Ctr playing 5/8.

    Good luck.

    He would be better off going back to saints.

    Chad was city origin half last year.

    Ben Hunt - 1.2 mill a year
    Chad Townsend - 1 mill a year

    Seems right actually. Chad shits on Ben Hunt.

    If chad plays centre last year we don't win the premiership.
