I've been burnt more than once believing BMM had finally met his potential.
Very similar situation with players like Simona , Brooks ,Daine Laurie ,Groat etc

Eventually you need to weigh up when the potential turns into solid performances week in week out

I'm hoping Matt Groat has turned the corner and has a huge 2018 in Q Cup!

They offered Matt Lodge 500k a year for 3 years but he knock it back and signed with the Broncos for 1 year on 85k apparently.

If it was any team other then Broncos or rorters I would say 'no way'.
