    If Naden played against the storm, we lose. Great attacking weapon, but no defence.

    How long is Burton signed for?

    The Broncos ridding themselves of Milton is getting stronger. Burton would be an obvious target.

    OFFICIAL. 21-year-old forward J'maine Hopgood swaps the construction site for the Panthers bubble after being upgraded to an NRL development contract.

    May did enough in the trials to prove that he belongs in the 14, and 100% deserves an extension. He'll cost f**k all too, so you can't really go wrong.

    It’s a question of re-signing someone that’s been a trouble maker, not his talent.

    Personally I think it sends the wrong message to re-sign him.


    Also it’s a mistake to re-sign him before Burton as well. We should be locking down our best talent first.

    Burton probably won't extend unless he gets game time. I could be wrong. The young players seem to be impatient nowadays.
    I don't know how he ticks. No doubt there will be some vultures hang around come November.

    Can we not Carry Burton and May on the bench?

    14.Burton
    15.Zane
    16.Leota
    17.May.

    I don’t see a drama.

    Yes May would take the second rower position on the bench in that situation which is Burns right now.

    Cleary said on the footy show Burton was training in several positions including centre and fullback. So it will come

    That’s some good news.

    Although it also indicates he’s likely sticking with Luai which some people may not like.

    Problem is when Capewell returns. Both Capewell & Martin are better second row options than May. Even Bryce Cartwright I think would be better.

    May to me is more of a mobile lock, or fill in half.

    I can answer these with 1 thing. I want Burton and Luai on the field for the 80 to help create points.

    I was just explaining that May could fit there. It wouldn't necessarily be best.

    Need to see the full strength spine in action but beating Roosters and Storm gives them more time. If Luai does the job then it doesn’t matter. Injuries will be key and even a few week injury could see guys jumped in the pecking order

    Interesting. Wonder what they are planning if they are just waiting for him to pick up a second position. Fullback he could be our Tom Turbo.

    Laurie Daley & Brad Fittler played centre in their early days, I’m sure they got to use their playmaking talent in the position. Centre first and then fullback for Burton I think.

    I know there’s a romance about the halves, but arguably the two best players in the comp right now are fullbacks. Teddy & Turbo. Maybe even the three best with RTS. Fullback has become a vital position.

    Edwards will be injured again soon enough. Whare dropped soon so opens his chances to play
