    My 2 cents worth

    We will sign Josh Mc this week or next.

    We will wait until JDB trial before anything else ........

    Absolutely not. they would cost heaps. The way the troops are going, looks like Saints will need the $$ to re-sign what they already have.

    Depends on the dollars of course, but I'd take Milford over Norman any day of the week.

    The other factor is whether Sullivan finishes this year as an established first grader or not.

    Sign either of them and kiss goodbye to Sullivan staying.

    If you could sign a half for 1 year, to buy Sullivan that extra year to be ready for first grade (even though I think hes pretty close now if not ready already), then fine. this is where Norman comes in, not in demand could probably sign him to stay for 300k on a 1 year extension, if another club comes in and offers him more then fine we cut him loose.

    Neither Milford nor Reynolds would sign for a year and no where near the 300K mark if they did.

    Sullivan is and should be our priority. Coaching staff are doing everything in their power to prioritise him and rightfully so.

    Club is hoping JDB's court case is finalised. Natural halfback. Slot him right in at #7

    Obviously the 'Mole' has been digging around in our forums again.

    A lot has changed on the player situation even in the last 24hrs and I notice his report referenced Hunts recent injury (4-6 weeks out isnt it?) delaying the proposed mega swap. Now we have Reynolds and possibly Milford in the mix (for next year).
    This all runs into the trial time of DeBelin also.

    Why would the Cows let Clifford go now particularly as desperate as they are? If they somehow get Reynolds for next year, it throws a whole new aspect on the swap.

    Maybe the mega swap may happen, but with twist imo

    Except we need Clune until Hunt returns which may be as early as Anzac game

    Cowboys to let McGuire walk in three player swap

    The Cowboys, Dragons and Knights are considering a three-way player swap in a bid to get urgent help with injury crisis’ at all three clubs.

    According to WWOS’ The Mole the swap deal proposes Cowboys forward Josh McGuire moving to the Dragons in exchange for St George Illawarra halfback Adam Clune.

    That would allow the Cowboys to give halfback Jake Clifford an early release to join the Knights, who he is scheduled to link with in 2022.

    Former Origin star McGuire is reportedly out of favour at the Cowboys with he and his management agreeing with the club that he could pursue his options elsewhere.

    McGuire has a history with Dragons coach Anthony Griffin from their time at the Broncos and the pair have a good relationship.

    It looks like McGuire is not coming until after Hunt is fit to return. I personally would give Sullivan a run at 7 and bring McGuire into the lock position for the ANZAC Day Game. Fuimaono and Sims as our edge forwards and McGuire at lock. Kerr to return to the prop rotation.

    We don't need Norman. Sullivan would have Hunt as his halves partner and Bird outside of him at centre. He would a protector in Sims.

    I say we should have a Sullivan Norman halves pairing until Hunt comes back and then a Sullivan Hunt halves pairing until Hunts contract is up.

    Kerr is going well on the edge and punching out 80 mins each week. Why move him??

    Kerr is a long term edge forward project, he ain't moving back to the middle anytime soon. Agree he's improving each game once it clicks with him he will be a weapon.

    I’d rather we swap Norman to the Cowboys and keep Adam Clune.
    IMO both Norman & McGuire are overrated & overpaid therefore a trade would be ideal.
    Winner winner.
