    I think it's just a bad term. Even if I know what it means I can't always be sure that the person using it knows what it means.

    If that's the case surely he doesn't unseat Corey Allan for the fullback spot. Latrell will shift to centres but surely JAC won't be parachuted in to the fullback spot he so craves...

    The NRL will apologise to them for even questioning them.
    Let's call this for what it is...blatant cheating
    And they had the hide to say game was stopped for Sivo who was legitimately injured

    Teams deliberately work to get our best defender (Matterson) caught at marker. They'll usually go short side when that happens.

    The alternative is having a three page discussion to clear it up.

    that’s what got us in the rosters game, then Keary targeted Mahoney. Turned the game.

    BA mentioned it as going away from our defensive structures

    Been doing well at it all year then. U seriously don't believe that do you? What about when it has started on the other side of the field and matto has had no involvement?

    Yeah it can't be helped, having an edge forward at marker, but Matterson makes so many tackles. I wouldn't be surprised if he was the top tackler of all edge defenders. The key is having middle forwards wrapping to the short side quickly. And then having them cope with a nippy half one-on-one. That rules out Paulo and Evans.

    They mentioned on NRL360 that the Broncos will be trying to shed plenty of their higher paid players and offering to chip in to make it happen.

    Would we be interested in any? Staggs and Haas are the only ones I’d take.

    Staggs and Haas would be great pickups and would slot straight in. I can’t think of anyone else on their roster that we’d want or need.

    I reckon Herbie Farnworth has looked alright at times. Could provide decent value.

    Farnworth would be on unders. I reckon the ones the Broncos want to get rid of will be players like Bird, Milford, Oates, Croft and Lodge. Getting rid of these guys will help the Broncos retain the likes of Farnworth, Staggs and Dearden.

    Oates looks like someone who probably needs a change of scenery to reignite his career. He’s only 25.

    Oates is an absolute donkey these days.
