    Actually Crush, I was thjnking more along the lines of Jai Field as he is unlikely to get a permanent spot af the Dragons, a year at the cows might just make or break him especialkt on a liwer base contract
    But anyway conjecture is just that, conjecture, they are more tgan kjkely going to find a good player from the QCup.

    Massive news!
    I can confirm that Gareth Widdop's hair is no longer blonde and has returned to its natural colour!
    Last season as we all know the moment he dyed his hair was the exact moment the wheels fell off.
    Thankfully he too seems to have realised this and is giving the dragons every chance of winning in 2019.
    Thankyou Gareth Widdop!

    Thank you, Mr Crush.

    This is of course, is major news for us dragons fans.

    There is a story on Foxsports about George Burgess being linked to a possible move to Brisbane, to alleviate salary cap pressure, but Brisbane would apparently have to offload someone to fit him in. I think George Burgess would top our pack off beautifully. If we could offload either Aitken or Lafai to accommodate George Burgess, I would be all for it. Although I doubt that it will happen.

    There is plenty of truth to George heading to the Donkeys.
    Just prior to Christmas he was having a few drinks with Seibold at the Normanby Hotel in Brisbane just after Seibold was announced as Coach.

    We'd be caught embarrassingly short in the centres if we let Aitken or Lafai go for a forward, instead of replacing them with another centre.

    Neither Aitken or Lafai would be in my starting side if I was selecting the team. One would be enough for back up.

    Now Now Frank...George wont be coming so no point dreaming and planning for this one.
    To play under Mary..or Seibold at Brisbane. Who do you reckon is a bigger draw card and has deeper pockets.
    Just like the Val Holmes to the Dragons wish. Reckon Val Holmes to Dragons is over million-1 odds now Barba has conveniently opened the door for the Cowboys.

    BLM01,
    It will be interesting to gauge his level of commitment this season.
    We can only hope he doesn't 'Do a Packer' and go missing after signing elsewhere.

    I trust he will stay committed but if he changes hair colour mid season, anything could happen!

    Not sure if it's been mentioned but I have it on good authority that Pearson will be starting on the wing round 1 vs Cows.
    You would think surely Lomax has the inside running on a centre spot

    You would hope Lomax would be one centre but there has been murmurs that he'll be on the wing if he's in the side at all:confused:

    Barring injuries or suspensions, Lomax will be playing centre.

    Don't know how reliable this is but there is a video of two big name NRL players on whatsup doing some fd up chit. Both will get sacked if true. 1 from Qld and 1 from NSW.

    if the Pearson rumours true and I hope it is, I pray this is Marys angle for the backline :

    Widdop
    Pearson
    Lomax
    Lafai
    Perierra or Ravalawa
    Norman
    Hunt

    with Robson on the bench

    but it most likely will be

    Widdop
    Pearson
    Aitken
    Lafai
    Lomax
    Norman
    Hunt

    either way, if Aitken has improved his 'D' this still could kick some arse
