Would it be worth the risk getting Bird from the Broncos as a center?
Bird could play Left Right Out !!!
Has always been overrated and the Broncos are salivating at the prospect of releasing him to any suckers that will entertain him.

Suggestions on Talkin Sport that Bellamy wants to give Oates a go at back row.

Why why why are we not thinking the same?
I think Storm have a much better chance to cover him learning the position much better than we can, personally I think we need an established hard nosed second rower as opposed to someone learning on the job.

All these meltdowns. How do we know we didn’t express interest?

I would go to Melb for a good contract and a nice boat then head to the Tigers for my retirement fund after I was cooked.

With the Roosters having Crichton and Cordner signed up for next year (with both likely to play long minutes when fit) it looks like Ryan Matterson will be relegated to a limited minute utility role. He'd be a great solution to our weak right edge.

With Tui leaving surely we can spend the money elsewhere as Thompson can cover the spot if Mbye is injured.

His injuries are major concern.

I think we should have a melbourne storm approach to signing players. Would storm ever consider morris brothers? NO. Would storm consider oates or marty? YES. I just always tend to think no matter the circumstance would clubs like storm and brisbane be interested in the player.
edit: just realised Masterton just made a similar comment.

Honestly don't think that is a thing wrt Storm.

Storm often sign risky / nufty players and hope to maximise their output - Jaiman Lowe, Ben Roberts, Maurice Blair, Ryan Tandy, Arana Taumata, George Rose, Robbie Rochow, Clint Newton, Beau Champion, Junior Moops, Matthew White, Tom Learoyd, Joel Romelo, Troy Thompson, Jack Afamasaga, Liam Foran, Wairangi Koopu, Luke Kelly, Chris Walker, Jamie Feeney etc.

They probably do better than most clubs in that regard, but PLENTY of nobodies have passed through their systems and registered just a handful of games.

Storm excel at finding juniors and bringing them through an excellent development system, such that they regularly produce consistent and high-quality footballers. It's not just luck when you bag guys like Slater, Smith, Cronk etc. and then replace them with debutants like Munster, Hughes etc.

well here we go again, morris is not good enough for the tigers yet the slimme sharks pick him up. i am really starting to wonder if and who IVAN is looking at because we are running out of players we can purchase.
the 2019 off contract players can be signed in November
That doesnt help when you have let half a dozen players go in 2019 - they have to be replaced.

Patience is a virtue. Seldom in a woman, never in a man.

Chill out.
