    Agree with you there, hence I said a one year deal. He can be ridiculously good when on form. Barba is also a loose cannon who ended up player of the year in ESL. Cows have given him a 1 year contract. Behave, or piss off should be in the agreement. It's all speculation atm. Eels want to offload him and I don't see many clubs biting at his heels tbh. Fairly sure Titans and Broncs have said a big loud no to him.

    Definitely. I can't see McInnes being punted by Mary. He was effectively used like a battering ram for the first few rounds and then exhausted himself. TBH I only saw good attack from him in a couple of games. Never mind, it's all conjecture at this point .

    It’s all over the news sites we offered him a lucrative 3 yr deal a month ago.
    Still in progress

    Corey Norman , mmmhm very interesting . If indeed correct he along with Lomax and Perrira could solve a few problems in our stagnant back line , by finally giving it the speed and ball security that has been lacking for a number of seasons now .

    Maybe this is the shock rumour that such and such's second cousin on the wife's side was talking about. Only conjecture but still.. :p

    Well Drag Queen I don’t know where your been getting your gossip from missy , but I have it on good authority that it was suppose to had been non other than the star of stars - Hollywood Hayne himself . ( Ethel found that little ‘ titt - bit ‘ out when she read my tea leaves in my morning cupa - I couldn’t tell her that it was only a buegy that I spat in the cup ! ) :flushed:

    Surely not. I know they have a questionable cap but does it reach that far? Probably....

    Newcastle will be able to offer Fonua Blake big money. He would be a great signing for us or them.

    I think Easts have their sights set on bigger fish, such as Pangai and or Taupau.

    I really like the idea of signing Norman if we intend to play him halfback. He has the ability to control a game. He could be the game manager we are looking for. Who goes for him, will be the question?

    WTC said that we are talking to one of the biggest names in the NRL. I don't think that Norman would fit that category. If we could get Norman and sign another bigger name, then we could be looking real good.

    Aha. Dont forget he was in the Dragons system not long ago. That is a huge +++ for recruitment. He has bled red and white before...oh well you know what I mean.. however remember we have a no DH policy in our club...supposedly. Had huge wraps on him coming out of 20's and about to hit the big time before he stuffed up..then we kicked him out the door and tore up his contract. But can play and big strong unit.
