Player movements and rumours

    We could take superman and we'd find away to have him get a season injury.
    If we get Moylan he'll play like 5 games tops.
     
  2. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I don't see how Holmes is a good signing. He started his last year in the NRL as his clubs 3rd choice fullback, and then had a 6-8 week purple patch. He is a 500k player.

    lol hes worth more than 500k. Especially to the Cows who cant score points.
     
  4. Sultan Pepper HG Emm

    Should come back to the Pandas to replace Maloney.

    I don't really think putting him at fullback and playing Drinkwater or Clifford in reserve grade will actually improve their ability to score points at all. So in theory that makes him worth less than 0 to them. He would've been a good signing for Brisbane (and yeah at much more than 500k despite Gemmell's spazzing about it) who needed an extra spine player, but the Cows more than anything need outside backs (and perhaps a coach with some faith a young spine). Ironically in Holmes they've signed an awesome outside back but won't be putting him there.

    Absolutely awesome news for Queensland which may be clouding your judgement slightly (and yes I realise it's a dick move to respond to a reasonable opinion by telling you that you're biased for no reason, but I couldn't resist :p )

    They will definitely be more dangerous with Holmes at 1. Im surprised so many people think otherwise. And yeah i agree they need centres more than anything but its never a bad time to sign (at the time before the departure) the best finisher in the world.

    If it came down to the choice I'd rather they persist with Clifford. His running game hasn't been utilised nearly enough.

    Genuinely disappointed to see Burgess bow out in the way he has. I mean fuck South's but that guy was an absolute beast especially before he fucked off to Union.

    Gillett announced his retirement this morning.
    Shame he was never the same after his neck injury. Had a real purple patch for a few seasons and really lifted for Tests.
     
  10. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Shame for both those blokes.
     
  11. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Love him, but great news for Brisbane.
     
  12. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Fainu -> Silverwater
     
  13. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Kahu back to Brisbane. What an absolutely brain dead fuckhead decision that is.
     
  14. jazman84 JM Eightyfour

    He won't be in our top 17, but anyone who could get a knod ahead of Shibisaki is welcome in my book.
     
  15. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    Ramien straight back to Cronulla.
     
  16. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    Easts withdrawn their offer to Latrell, fascinating to see how this plays out and where he ends up.
     
  17. Magic AJ Parker

    Pretty classless move from the club tbh.

    Dunno why clubs feel the need to make a statement like that. Keep that shit behind closed doors.

    Be surprised if he's at the club next year, sounds like there's been a real breakdown in the relationship between club and player.

    Refreshing to hear we're linked with good players. Disappointing knowing full well we'll end up paying a combined 1.7mil a year for Kurt Capewell, Matt Prior and Zane Tetevano.
     
  19. Lukic L Popovic

    Separately, I'd absolutely pay Mitchell around 800-900k a year to play fullback. I mean fucks sake, we've paid Reynolds, Matulino and Packer around 750k a year to play reserves in their 30s. At least Mitchell has world class potential and is a genuine game breaker.
     
  20. Tartmaster AJ James

    From what I've seen he's been pretty classless as well though
