    That guy and his management are already trouble. Whoever he signs with will just be waiting for him to activate get out clauses or up his salary. Let him go to yawnion

    I think McGuire is a decent bloke off the field, dickhead on it. Lodge is the opposite, tonight is the night you are going to die is not a normal thing to say pissed.

    Me too. Glad I'm not the only one that gets so disheartened when I see this kinda stuff. We are so far away.

    Even if we sign say Josh mcguire and Joe o they aren't any where near top 5 in their position so therefore will provide incremental improvement.

    Club is so hamstrung by hunt and Norman it's not funny.

    I'd pay overs for Christian Welch to start the ball rolling but problem is half our team is on overs

    Did his form drop off coincide with the birth of his child? Maybe his priorities have changed... he’s a family man now.

    Maybe, I’m just hoping it was an off year and he gets back to his best next year. Hopefully he has a good rest with his family and gets ready for a brutal off season.

    No nor do I, that’s getting into psychopath territory, yuk. I guarantee though if he does sign he will become a fan favourite if he starts making meters and gets one of our overpaid halves off the books.

    Ben Dobbin (Channel Nine Brisbane) who is usually on the money with rumours, last night reported that his inside mail was Josh Maguire to the Broncos in 2021.

    Same here. It's become a real joke where we see the rich and famous always wanting to get their way.

    They have come a cropper with Sonny Bill as his form isn't like it was.

    Is there a salary crap?

    Penrith have now reached the stage of reaping the fruits that they have sewed with their junior development, whilst the Roosters just pay lots to get what they want.

    We will be doing the same with our juniors coming through and hopefully in a few years time we will be the next Penrith.

    Gareth,
    easier option for maguire to move back to brisbane BUT if he is on big dollars then broncos will have to match it so they will have to offload players so we still have a chance for Joe O .. I dont think it would be wise paying the dollars maguire is on Id rather try to snaffle somebody younger ( wouldnt welch have been a nice pick up) Hopefully our new brains trust are working hard to sign a player or 3 but if we have to lets look at superleague for a player

    Yes qld redvee, you are on the right track . I would much prefer Welch over McGuire myself . According to yesterday’s Storm team for 2021 he still has not signed , so there is still hope that he may come our way . But as you have said Griffin and his team will need to do some earnest work to get the job done .
