As for the Broncos, imagine if most of the teams in all grades of nsw SG, flegg, nsw cup etc.. all fed into the dragons 1st grade side. That was (and mostly still is) the Broncos situation.. This kids and their families r all lifelong Broncos fans too.

So when they were trying these new kids like Walters and mam and co, there was 4 or 5 absolute guns ready in each position.. Kevvie can chop and change to his hearts content.. And outcast the rest.. Walters was considered trash for a while but eventually won the 9 jersey back...i was hoping we might have got him at one stage..

Compare that to flanno.. He has mulheisen as his only other 9 option, Matt feagai as is only actual fullback depth (lomax is just robbing another position), he has kid in rumble in JF who's just starting out.. Like his depth is bugger all.. His only way out is to get more out of his average as shit roster.. And consider any option possible to get recruits interested.. All while keeping his job.
Our roster is actually pretty deep in most positions. Corey Allan being injured makes our outside back depth look a little shallow. But we are OK there. The big problem is hooker. Having 1 top 30 hooker is just silly. That's our fault. We should have got someone in.

As for the Broncos, they've got good spine backups, but they are already starting Jayden Hunt this early in the season. On Saturday, Dan Russell got 30 minutes off the bench in our Cup side. Dan Russell is clearly better than Jayden Hunt.

We actually have four hookers - Hunt, Flanno and Mul. Hunt refuses! Flanno is covering 6. Mul is OK IMO.

I think a decent backup 7 or 6, with Flanno as a 9 rotation would change the balance for the better.

Hunt will never play hooker. Flanno is not a hooker. He's played there off the bench as a utility, but he is not a strong enough defender to play in the middle. Muhlheissen is not top 30.

After watching the weekend game Hunt needs to go to hooker. Hunt is not a game manager and his kicking game is very ordinary. Flanagan has made a great choice in doing what is best for the side by shifting Lomax to the wing, now he has to make another selection move in the best interests of the team by moving the sook to hooker

Our injury luck has been very good so far (touch wood), Allan aside, noone has longterm injuries.. Particularly the spine which is our major weakness if anyone gets injured.. So hopefully we can make hay while the sun shines and get some more wins... I keep hearing about players with big injuries at other clubs.

I always believed KFlan at 6 would be a plus for us.
As 5/8 he's growing on me more and more.
He could become just as valuable as Trent Barrett!
And Please stop this crap about Ben Hunt playing hooker, he'll walk out in heartbeat and then you can hold your balls in a tight grip, even hook knew this.
If anything look at finding the next Changa Langlands.

Finding and signing are two different things. That has been a big problem at the Dragons as you know 56 to 66. But we don't know what is happening behind the scenes at the moment with recruitment and the only ones who would know whether or not we are going to sign someone soon are the recruitment guys and Flanno and of course Management.
