    There's strong talk doing the rounds this morning that if Latrell Mitchell is signed by the Rabbitohs that Braiden Burns will b allowed to pursuit his options for an immediate release.

    This guy is a gun and a player that the Dragons should be tracking.. A speedster and in a funny way has the look of a young Matt Cooper..Wouldnt cost an arm and a leg imo.

    Worth following the situation if I'm the club and Millward...

    We’ve got Nene.

    Just the sort of player that we need Mickey. Would love to have him at the club.

    Should look into it if possibility but surely they get rid of someone else? Would think latrell plays fullback and burns will stay at centre...

    I suggested the idea of us signing Burns last year and was shot down by one or 2 posters. I think he would be a great addition to our roster.

    An ancient billionaire who is out of touch with modern ways?


    Why would we want another one?

    Yes good idea, but our club will need time to think about considering it....ask Mary....who may look into it when he gets around to it, try to find some small business out there to sponsor him, then think about offering him low end money whilst explaining he is coming to a great club with traditions that need to be learnt and respected.and ensuring he meets Dragons footy standards..
    and mean while......whooska.....he is signed by another club and then we sign Williame.
    So wont happen

    Agree, if he goes to the Rabbits he will play fullback.

    I'm guessing the Fox has a deal waiting if he can get out of Melbourne and back to Sydney.

    My guess is that they say no way Jose...

    I'd rather sign Mitchell, he is the star we need in our backline to turn things around for us. Where is our TPA and hole of game money? Make it happen Millward!

    If Bennett rates Mitchell above Burn than why are we always going for second best. The Bunnies already have a top class backline and yet are still going for Mitchell.

    We are still placing all our hope in young juniors coming through that will perform as well as they did in the lowere grades. Then we make up excuses that they are not ready yet and so we just have to waste a few more seasons until they are ready. Oh, yes and then we let them go to another club because they are offered a better deal, prefer the other club's coach and training facilities.

    Come back Bennett, I really miss you.
