Craig Bellamy was on NRL360 last night & said that Brandon Smith has requested a release from the final 2yrs of his contract but they won’t release him unless they get a player back in return.In my opinion both Feagai boys would not be out of place on the left right now. This would release Bird to play on the edge at 12 and Kerr to move back to the prop rotation:
1. Ramsey - give him a few games and let's see how he goes
2. Matt Feagai
3. Max Feagai
4. Lomax (Fui until Lomax returns)
9. McCullough - B Smith for 2022
13. De Belin
Now for me, this looks like a well-balanced side with youth and experience, speed and mongrel. If we could keep this side on the park for most of the rest of the season, we should be in good shape for 2022.
6. Norman - maybe the Dogs will want him
13. Fui (when Z Lomax returns)
So if you want Smith you’d have to sacrifice a quality player to get him.
