    Ah the rumour mill is going off like a bucket of prawns in the sun.

    So lets have a look at the latest:

    Griffin - Gone (probably never to coach in Australia again)
    Cleary- To the Panthers where he doesn't really see eye to eye with Gould
    West Tigers will need a new coach
    Gould to CEO of the Dragons (hence the Cleary rumour to the Panthers)
    Rumoured Dragons are actively seeking a new coach (as I said rumoured only)
    Bennett on the outer with the Broncos - Could he come back to the Dragons (but under Gould)?
    The Broncos chasing Seibold this would create a vacancy at the Rabbits
    Flannagan rumoured to be unhappy at the Sharks - Dragons or West Tigers or even Rabbits?
    Coach required at the Sharks
    Brad Arthur on the outer at the Eels.

    Some fun days, weeks, months ahead...….buckle up its going to be an interesting ride as it could be all or it could be nothing.

    There is a story on Zero Tackle saying that McDonald is considering an off season switch to Nth Qld. It has previously been mentioned that McDonald may be heading to Nth Qld next year. Where there is smoke there is usually fire.

    I am already counting on McDonald at Nth Qld next year.

    I expect Nene to be released and Nighty to retire. We will have 2 new wingers in 2019.

    Chances are one is Tupou. Has Jordan done enough in Nene's absence to lock in a starting spot?

    Tend to agree.

    As to the second spot, I will wait and see how Jordan goes ( if given the chance ) this year.
    Were we not linked with an up and coming Canberra winger for next year ? I forget his name. Tall Fijian lad.

    I believe that we need to get another prop, centre and winger for next year as we will be two wingers down and the reserve stocks are fairly bare. In addition, I think that we should get Tom Carr back as he has been in good form for Canterbury and is better than Tohi and Marsters. He has plenty of pace.

    MacDonald was reportedly ‘on the nose’ last year too.

    Someone doesn’t like him.

    Not a rumour, but didn't want to start another thread.

    Congrats to young Saab and Bazzaz for making the Australian schoolboys team that will tour England in October.

    Saab is a big lad with some speed, but don't know too much about Bazzaz. Anyway both will play JF next year and hopefully be added to our DP list.

    I think it's more that he is homesick, his family is in North Queensland

    Why would any player want to go from a top 4 team to go play for the team battling to not win the wooden spoon?
    What ever happened to wanting to win games? Its all about the money. Ohh and missing mummy and daddy, boohoo didums.
