    Could very well be red , I know that the man has a bit off a wild streak in him , but - IF - and at this stage it is a big IF , he should decide to go elsewhere that streak would need to be tamed .

    100% agree. Plays aggressive but misses a lot in defence
    Plays great on the wing for QLD

    Yep Chambers is another Euie in respect to hogging the ball.
    Josh Morris was the same but Robbo has improved that part of his game for the Roosters...most of the time anyway

    The Feagai's did not impress the new regime in pre-season

    The Gagai club form narrative has been outdated since the start of last year, maybe even earlier, and was mostly true of his Knights stint.

    Based on current form he'd start at centre for any club. Don't necessarily need him but wouldn't say no

    Any possible Clune trade deal to Nth Qld now definitely dead. Chad Townsend signed a 3yr $2M deal with the Cows from 2022. Way overs I think.

    Clune was NEVER heading to Townsville. That was all media bullshit.

    And they did say we are looking for middle forwards and I still hold the belief that Andrew Fifita may still end up here - also saw an article yesterday stating his England deal may be off

    A hooker forward who I regretted we lost was Siliva Havili-a real little pocket rocket in the mould of the Sharks Talakai. Currently with the Raiders but off contract at the end of 2021. Tom Starling is now ahead of him in the pecking order down there but Hodgson has been picking up some injuries lately so Havili is No 14 this weekend and may now be required for depth. Could be worth an approach for an early release however- particularly as their outside backs are looking pretty ordinary and they may wish to free up some cash before 30 June to reinforce that area.

    I’ve been thinking for a while Shaun Sauni-Esau could be a trade piece. He’s down the pecking order with us but a very bright prospect. We have a lot of talented kids but we won’t be able to keep them all.

    So Hook said he didnt know about Merrin retiring until Monday this week?

    We brought on McGuire last week.

    So based on that info we now have money available to spend which is very interesting.

    If De Belin found guilty is that another 300k for this season? Or would it be 600k?

    I think his contract has been accounted for already. If he did come back we are pretty stacked.
