    Probably not, although Valentine Holmes is at the cowboys, he may be pushed to the bench, if they prefer holmes at fullback

    Drinkwater will just move into the halves you’d think. Where that leaves Clifford or Morgan, who knows.

    Unless we can get an elite fullback - I’d put Mitchell in this category - I can’t see much of an upgrade on Edwards. He’ll be even better this year.

    Katoa has already shown in the 3 months since leaving the club he's better then people say he is. I feel vindicated already.

    Morgan won’t be moved, on a massive deal.

    If we could get Drinkwater he’s an upgrade on Edwards, has a more all round game.

    Player movement is so fluid now you don’t really need to be off contract.

    Cant offer him a deal unless he’s given permission of course.

    Drinkwater is more of a ball player for sure but he has only played 11 games, runs for less metres and isn't a good defender. If he keeps improving he will be an upgrade but he might not be there yet. I don't think we want to be getting less experienced right now. Edwards is a better support player and runs for more metres and I think is better positioned. There is no need to go chasing Drinkwater IMO. Let Edwards have another year, we have good young fullbacks coming through, Drinkwater is just another good prospect there.

    That is it. I wouldn't be quick to re-sign Edwards for 2021 yet. Drinkwater will still be available early next year so can re-assess after 5 rounds or so but plenty Edwards does is good enough

    Not sure on that. Small sample size & there was a lot of fanfare about him... he did look solid (if I remember correctly he seemed to make quite a few handling errors) but I didn't think he looked like an exceptional talent. Maybe he'll look better this year or in a better team, but I'd say the exact same Edwards.

    Yeah he doesn't look like anything special to me, just a nice ball player who lacks in other areas.

    Tyrone May has plead Guilty to the four charges.

    Sentencing next year.

    That sucks for him. Any idea what the sentence will be(prison or something else)?


    Well that is a huge cautionary tale for any player who wants to pull their phone out during sex, all those girls had to do was say they didn't give consent and he had no defence against 8 charges.

    I’d be shocked if he got any jail time.

    suspended sentence at the most and something else on top probably.

    Well I hope it works out that way for him. I wonder what the NRL IU will do?

    Yeah I don’t know, Packer and Matt Lodge are still playing..... who knows, they may want to make an example of him.

    He brings ball playing which I think we’ll desperately need, Edwards is quite one dimensional.

    You’d think the club will sack him now.

    Might be the riddle for why Burton wasn’t named in the top 30, I’d assume he’ll just take May’s place.

    He and Nathan are very close, you look at their instagrams and they are practically joined at the hip, so much so that I reckon it was almost certainly Nath in one of those videos. Not sure if that saves may or not.
