    Any news on the JDB situation? I know it’s supposedly a no go zone around here but I know I’m not the only curious one.

    Jarrod Wallace from the Titans is the name being thrown up by Brent Read on TripleM to replace James Graham as apparently he seems to want out.

    That I would believe somewhat as they are the only team worse than us. That is a club that truly needs to be blown up and rebranded.

    Blown up and relocated. They can take up the second BNE franchise.
    No point rebranding.

    Chargers / Seagulls/ Crushers/ Titans. hasn't worked.
    It's a lovely part of the world, but doesnt seem to work for football franchises.

    Even the AFL struggle. The GC Suns have finished 12th to 18th each and every season, and their crowds have gone down from 19k to 10k over that time.

    On Thursday afternoon, James Graham officially departed the St George Illawarra Dragons after being granted a release.

    And it seems as though Paul McGregor has set his sight on a replacement, who is one of two players that want out of their club.

    I tend to agree, but for the fact its just such a cheesy uniform and cheesy logo. Plus it needs to be more focussed on not being a Qld team and being the team of northern NSW, Southern Qld maybe playing every second home game at Suncorp. I wouldn't be against the NRL to allow them a slightly higher cap to gain traction if they rebranded.

    Unfortunately I have to agree with you-our "loyal to Mary" board has seen to that-What player wants to be selected and coached by a committee?- Rapana I wouldn't bother with anyway-just doesn't have the explosiveness of the others.

    Hopefully after we lose the next three matches, the Board will have to move and get Shaun Wane on board or Griffin- but that's logic speaking not money and we have a tightwad Board.

    Crushers were a Brisbane team.
    Gladiators were a GC team and I think the Giants were also.

    He’s been very ordinary for a while now which may explain wanting out.

    Certainly meets our criteria......ordinary, journeyman and getting on in years!

    6 origin games for Qld. Hardly ordinary compared to the usual journeyman signings like Latimore and the other rejects

    Titans went from having some good forwards in Ryan James, Shannon Boyd, Jarrod Wallace and have destroyed them all.. A change of scenery may be good.

    Ryan James is good but riddled with injuries, Boyd was good at Canberra but I think he got lazy up there, and maybe his size doesn’t suit the modern game but Wallace I haven’t seen much of. He would probably go well for us. Not a world beater but at 28 he’s about in his prime so in all honesty I think he’d be at least like for like with Graham and probably worth a punt. I’d prefer Fifita, Saifiti or Ese’ese but can’t see any coming over.

    Vaughan and Wallace starting props with Kerr, Merrin and Lawrie in the rotation isn’t too shabby
