    Or maybe his dad just wasn't around?

    AFAIK his mum did it all herself. He has always had Hayne as his surname.

    Gordon... Never spectacular but always solid and safe. Puzzling signing though, where does that leave Plodtrell?

    It will leave him at fullback.

    Gordon will play where required to cover injury and Origin. Good depth signing.

    Goal kicker too. I can see Latrell and Gordon sharing wing and fullback a la Minichiello and RTS.

    Yep, I think that's what'll happen.... Then by 2018/2019 Mitchell will go it alone and carve up.... and then sign for Nth QLD for 2020 a la RTS to the Warrirors!!

    No way Gordon has left a FG spot to play reggies elsewhere

    Prime candidates...

    How good will the Boncos backline look in a few years;

    Boyd, Radradra, Inglis, Roberts, Oates, Mitchell, Hayne, Milf, Hunt, Ash Taylor, Dugan, Tedesco, Norman, Reed, Maranta, Kahu, Karmichel Hunt, Folau (Izzy and John).....

    plenty of competition for spots....

    Where did I say he will play reggies?

    He will float where required.

    I'd hardly call his position at the Eels rock solid either.

    "Where ever required to cover injury and Origin". Suggests he a reggie in anyones book mate

    So when there are no injuries or Origin on, where does he play?

    He has been one of Parras best this year. Who exactly is pushing him out of the fullback spot there?

    Gordon will play on the wing and be the goalkicker.

    Bye bye Toopoo *does a little dance*

    He left the Panthers to play fullback at the Sharks.. then Eels... Highly doubt he'd want to be floating around or play on the wing again...
