    Yes, our honour board of useless centres since the days of Gaz and Coops is long and distinguished.

    I like your idea Hewi. It's a yes from me. I believe JB should take it with open arms and proove himself and then be rewarded the following year.

    I believe there was a lot of friction between his father and our club. No way we should think of bringing him back, big ego and small brain

    Jack Bird - too much too soon and took the big money to Broncos wanted out before season started, ate all the Big Macs in town, go injured, never to be seen again.
    Looks like another promising career waisted away.

    I don't think it's a promising career wasted. I think it's more a case of a young bloke who's achieved everything he wanted in the game, and no longer having the same motivation.

    Replace the two words Jack Bird with Corey Oates & you’d have peaked my interest.

    I think we should drop Atiken and play a centre down which should improve our defence.

    Very much the same as when we decided Mitch Rein was a better option for us than Damien Cook.

    He is the Dugan/Packer type signing. If he comes good in 2 years will pi$$ off and join another for bigger dollars. Saint will help him get back to best and they will get sweet FA. If not he will be a dud and injury prone. Looks like a very arrogant player. Was great when he was at Cronulla but after his great season when they won the comp his ego just took over.

    Curtis Scott maybe the better option.

    I can't believe Saints did not tyr and sign Feki from the Sharks and he is now gone to the ESL. He would have been a solid buy for Saints. I rate him as a good winger. Better than Rava, Pearson or Maranta.

    And that the just emphasizes what we have become. When Feki is a better prospect than 3 of your wingers, you really know just how shit you are.

    Apparently no coaching credentials what so ever. Which puts him on par with McWrecker.

    Remember that Jack Bird suffers badly from Rheumatoid Arthritis and has to have expensive injections to cope with the pain and inflammation that goes with the condition. These injections are very expensive and I would imagine he would need to live a disciplined lifestyle-very difficult for a young man with a high profile footy career.

    Sounds like Bird is bound for the Panthers to replace Maloney as 5/8 according to rumour. No need to worry as he won't be coming to the Dragons.
