    I had noticed Brayden McGrady was involved with the Titans in the off season build up but is not listed in the top squad on the main website so likely to be restricted to one of the feeder clubs in Qld Cup. His brother hasn’t featured for us thus far so I assume he is either injured or has moved on.

    It will be a really interesting season how our former players such as Laurie, Jack and Josh perform in 2021. They are all good pick ups for there new clubs. Feel a bit sorry for Jed with the Bunnies given he has picked up yet another injury and will miss the start to the season, he hust cannot catch a break. Hope they all have great seasons.

    Assume the guy playing for Melbourne is the same Tyson Smoothy who trialed for us last year?

    It might seem like I'm being a nark (it's not my intention) perhaps moving Josh on will be a master-stroke. Provided Young charlie is up to the mark.

    Sauce has always had those games in him. Even last season there were a couple games he had screaming. Talk about experience all you want but the guy has plenty of rookie errors in his game.

    I think he will be a good pick up for Souths in the end. And it will prove to be the right decision to move him on in favour of Staines.

    Pretty brutal if true. They have to many good outside backs for Josh to turn in performances like he did though.

    Bennet will probably be ruthless this year being his last at Souths.

    Paulo and or Marsters are far better than Mansour. So no surprise he will be handy depth as the year goes on

    Jesus Franky, Marsters legitimately would struggle to make our NSW Cup side & Paulo seems like a run of the mill winger.

    It's more a reflection on how poorly he played on the day as opposed to the others being 'far better'. Unfortunately I work with a few Bunnies supporters & they can't believe the ManGod has been dropped after one performance.

    I actually don't think it's brutal at all. During his last contract there were times that Sauce was carried by the talented younger players in the squad. Last Thursday night Josh was poo. He is just not able to cut in 1st grade in an elite team

    Many of his 'issues' with the high ball (and the like) last year were covered up by his strong runs bringing the ball back, and his more taleneted younger team mates. He was great for the passion and helped encourage that within the club. Blind Freddy to could that Father Time was catchng up at speed.

    Sad but true.
