Player movements and rumours

    Has anyone ever had a season as good as James Tedesco? Dally m, best origin player, shoe in for clive churchill medal and premiership and probably will get the international world's best player.
  2. Magic AJ Parker

    That's a jynx if I've ever seen one.

    Seibold rates Dearden super highly, but he's only just going to turn 19 at the start of next season. Probably still a couple of years away. There were rumours about Croft being a done deal. I dunno about him though, or if it's still even likely to happen or what.

    I think Bird either has to play left centre (the only other options are Boyd and SHITbasaki) or fullback. We've got a few too many 2nd rowers right now - Fifita and TPJ are the two best options IMO, and then there are Glenn and Gillett too.
  4. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Bird should be nowhere near the pack. Fifita/TPJ should be the edge backrowers for years to come. I'd be fine with Bird/Dearden in the halves next year, and target Ponga when he is off contract. Ideally Brisbane should sign Sezer to play 6 with Dearden for 1-2 years, but it's looking like it will be Croft who is signed.
  5. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Gillett isn't an option on an edge anymore, IMO. He pretty much has to play lock next year or he doesn't make the starting side.



    Although 3 props on the pine is a waste, considering Siebold plays Haas for 70ish minutes when he should be limiting it to 55-60 until he gets the lazy misses out of his game.
  6. Toolman TR Man

    they're too big. one of them is fine but having both is too hard to balance, they'll dominate one week then play shit the next. you don't want to overstack your side with islanders, they are supposed to compliment the more composed white players. i think this is why broncos are no chance in any forseeable future. having haas, fifita, tpj etc all on the field at the same time is a defensive nightmare but because they're often so good in attack they won't get rid of them and they'll be stuck with that problem for a decade.

    Jack Wighton supposedly rejected Canberra deal worth 750k a year.

    Have to think it's got more to do than just money because that's already overs IMO.
  8. Julian BJ Taylor

    That's a very odd opinion. For mine it's definitely unders given the current salary cap and dearth of NRL standard halves.
  9. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Dont rate Wighton at 6. Flash in the pan season imo. He has virtually no creativity.
  10. Magic AJ Parker

    They'd be hoping for some serious improvement from him on this season. 10 try assists and 10 linebreaks from 26 games is a pretty ordinary output from a 5/8.

    Anyway sounds like it has to do with the fact that his old agent negotiated his current deal and there are issues with how much he's taking as commission/way the deal is back ended.
  11. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I heard the last year of his deal was around 950k when you include the car and TPA.

    NRL need to seriously put a stop to this shit from players and player agents. The shit that Matterson is doing, the NRL should say they won't register any deal worth more money than his Wests contract.
  12. Julian BJ Taylor

    I understand what you're saying.

    But if we're being serious he was the attacking focal point of a team that was just a bees dick from winning the grand final. He had pretty ordinary halves partners and a minimum wage fullback who can't pass. You can't improve individually on a Clive Churchill Medal.

    Also. Just go through the team lists from late this season. There are 10+ halves playing NRL who areguably aren't even up to it. Even if you don't like him as a 6 he was a pretty high level fullback by the time he finished there if you want to use the attacking stats.

    Get in.
  15. Magic AJ Parker

    I feel like signing Holmes is a step backwards for the Cowboys.

    Drinkwater has got the potential to be a very good player and the more rounded fullback.

    He was probably the best winger in the game when he left but there's no way they're signing him to play on the wing.
    Cribbage likes this.
  16. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Absolute dud signing. He is arguably worth 500k, won't be in the top 8 fullbacks in the comp.
  17. Magic AJ Parker

    Not sure how much truth there is to it but Matt Moylan would be a very good pick up for the Tigers.

    Sharks mad to let him go given their current roster.
  18. Wilson SB Wilson

    Mad not to let him go. He’s continually injured and on a squillion. Will Kennedy is going to be sensational as well.
  19. Paddy P Orr

    Happy to have him at the Cows.
  20. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Yeah Holmes is a good signing even if theyre paying overs.
