Signings, Suggestions & Rumours Discussion

AD on minimum $150K. That's exactly what he was offered. Richo would have not upped it, no way. Good for depth but yes it is another roster spot.

If Naden & Bateman do go that's 2. Ipap gone already. Stefano who knows? I think we pay out Tumeth & possibly 1 or 2 more.

Roster spots will come it's just who do we sign & what are the priorities?

If Stefano goes definitely a front rower & I would suggest another outside back. Iro from Cronulla is the one for me.

1. Bula
2. Someone in the roster
3. Iro*
4. Olam
5. Turuva
6. Galvin
7. Luai
8. Stef or new signing*
9. Korosaui
10. Klemmer
11. Sam Fainu
12. Seyfarth
13. Tallis Duncan? Doueihi? Unsure
14. Da Silva/Sezer/Sullivan/ L Fainu/Mason
15. Pole
16. Twal
17. Miller/Matamua

We have fair utility/halves utility options.

Be interesting is Sezer stays or gets an offer elsewhere.
Like the backs , but the forwards are terrible , we need a major upgrade or nothing will change
 
Just heard something very crazy today about the club positioning itself to have a very very serious crack at Selwyn Cobbo on November 1st….

There’s a feeling around the league that Brisbane are feeling the pressure of the cap and Reece Walsh’s $1.1mil deal still hasn’t been signed because he wants at least $1.3-$1.4 million.

On top of that Hass, Mam and Carrigan all have recently been given upgraded contracts with all earning anywhere in the region of $800-1 mil each.

Staggs is also off contract next year too and wouldn’t be cheap. My source told me it’s a near certainty that both won’t be able to be retained.

Richo apparently rates him highly as well as Benji and I’m assuming he would see a lot of baby GI in him when he brought him to Souths all those years ago.

I did ask the question if it would be as a fullback and was countered with a no as Bula is seen and hoped to be our fullback for the next 15 years.

Side note: I posted at the start of the year that Duncan would be looked at and have now been told that’s looking like a pipe dream and significantly unlikely. He isn’t in position to talk to clubs until November but still the view is he won’t be coming here if he does leave. Rugby union would be the biggest threat if he were to depart.
 
Shame he has gone...but Taupau-Moors was the must keep out of the 2. Godinet is another one of the forwards I hope we can lock away.
Hope the club is in a position to announce some of our key pathways signings very soon otherwise Buzz will continue to report on juniors we lose to other clubs.

🤞 some of them are Taupua-Moors, Godinet, Makasini, Large bros. Havea Jr, Ta’ai.

Thanks for the info @teddy23

Would be amazing but a lot of due diligence would need to be done as a country Qld boy moving a long way from home. I live up in SE Qld & often been murmurings about him struggling in Brisbane.

Yeah not sure he’s the personality type to want to move to Sydney. I think we’re better off looking at more realistic targets.
 
Common sense also says the Broncos would prioritise Cobbo over Staggs.
Common sense ? very objective mate, who knows how they fit in at training? Or who the Broncs have coming through to replace the left or right centre? So many factors can influence a result that saying common sense doesn’t mean it’s a done deal in any way. Who the hell knows , but I do know that I would love to see SelWyn Cobbo running off Jarome Luai at Leichardt oval on a Sunday in a Wests Tigers jersey… absolutely 🤗

Something is up with Cobbo, noticed the last few weeks he’s been really down in the effort areas. A lot of walking out there. Not surprised he was left out of origin. Perhaps contract related.
 
Broncos must be sailing close to the wind with all the players they have to fit under their cap. With Haas and Walsh on mega deals their is no explanation for how they could possibly retain all in their current squad at market value. Their has to be some movement there for the right money

They’ve had a sombrero for most of their history. Gordy often jokes about it.
 
This isn’t mail this is more personal thinking but out of all the players at Brisbane. I’d prefer us to have a crack at Israel Leota instead who’s also off contract come November 1st.

Young dynamic winger who I reckon will be a star.
100%

He's one who will break out immediately and settle in to first grade fast.
Much like Cobbo, Mariner, etc.

He's kinda a next man up type signing.
If we got in early and made that deal, it'd be a fantastic move.

U19s origin player. (QLD)
Looks great.

Billy Slater said there are things in his game he needs to work on. Usually QLD pick and stick with their players.

AFL and Rugby Union background as well.

The kids an athlete and for his size very quick.
 
I’m sure broncos would prefer to keep Cobbo over Staggs but that would also cost them an extra $400-$500k that they probably won’t have. Id imagine they would want to free up some cash to fix their depth that has been found out big time this season too. Cobbo is a gun when his head is in the game, if he could cut the silly errors he will be a top 5 outside back in the comp in a few years time
