Matterson says no!

Its a managers ploy.... its happened 3 times with those parra forwards, first you hear whispers of junior paulo might wanting to live in qld, then RCG talks about how good it is there too and that he is seriously considering the dolphins, then matterson claiming its all but done, then all three sign onto parramattas books on a larger amount than what they would have got had they just extented... basically they just dicked the dolphins around and used them to hype them up, for a bigger offer to stay

So here is the team as it stands at the moment. Pretty clear the spine is where the problem lays for the Dolphins, especially the two half back positions. Given they haven't signed any grade A salary players they should still have plenty of cap left but whose available to fill the spots? Milford, Sullivan, Munster (2024) names that have been bandied around.

1. Isaako (1st grade Broncos)
2. Lee (1st grade Knights)
3.
4. Aitken (1st grade Warriors)
5. R Jennings (1st grade Panthers)
6.
7.
8. J Bromwich (1st grade Storm)
9. Stone (1st grade Eels)
10. Nicholls (1st grade Souths)
11. Kaufusi (1st grade Storm)
12. K Bromwich (1st grade Storm)
13.

14. Gilbert (1st grade Cowboys) 2nd row
15. Connelly Lemuelu (1st grade Cowboys) 2nd row
16. Marshall-King (1st grade Bulldogs) Hooker
17. Wallace (1st grade titans) prop

rest
18. Isaiya Katoa (halfback SG Ball Panthers)
19. Valynce Te Whare (centre -union)
20. Jack Bostock (Centre SG Ball Dragons)
21. JJ Collins (Prop Qlnd cup Tweeds Head)
22. Ryan Jackson (Prop QRL Colts Wynnum)

If the chips fell well Dolphins could end up with a spine of:

1. Walsh
6. Munster
7. Sullivan
9. Stone

in 2024. That wouldn't be too bad.

Lol Stone at hooker?

Won't win a single game. JMK will start at 9 unless they sign someone else, Stone is no hooker

Gold Coast, Newcastle, Canterbury, & West Tigers wouldn't be to hard to beat on current form. Its about having a dig, not paying overs for ovarrated under performers.

He is starting to play pretty well lately, maybe he nails that spot

Tom Gilbert is 6 years younger than Matterson, and his form of late has been better than him too.
Yeah matterson is overrated, not sure why the dolphins jumped at him, they need backs and halves, not another overpriced overated backrower, the guy has backflipped and threaten to backflip at several clubs, not sure you want a guy like that stinking up the place

It was a comment on the AFL fan's idea of Stone playing starting hooker.

I'm happy to say I'd be very surprised if they won any game where he did. The bloke's a handy, aggro lock, maybe an edge forward, but he's not a hooker. He played a handful of minutes there when Parramatta literally had no one else and still arguably cost us a semi final, although that's not his fault.

Tyrone Peachey is available.

It'll be interesting to see how the union centre goes and if he can hold down that currently missing starting position.

Tom Gilbert is easily the biggest star signed by Redcliffe. The signings from Melbourne are just grubby plodders.
Plodders. Is that the current Qld origin player, and 2 current Kiwi test players, one of which is captain you are talking about. Doesn't Tom come of the bench for NQ. Your TV must be on the blink.
