    Mbye hit a speed of 33.4

    Was that speed recorded when he slipped trying to tackle Tedesco?

    nope. i think it might have been another linebreak

    cause in the video he made a tackle, on jack wighton i think

    Broncos have locked down TPJ

    They just signed Lodge for $700k, TPJ for $800k, they have Milford on over 1 million, Darius on $1million and Bird on $800k plus, throw in the rest and wow what a cap.

    First time I saw him play this year he had a few errors and the second game against bulldogs he had 5 errors, 4 bad reads in defence , 2 led to try’s , penalised for mouthing of at ref even though he was captain, but got promoted to cc round 3

    Sounds like Nathan Brown when he was coming through.

    Brown was another bad loss, he is what we need now at 13



  • @jirskyr No, when has chasing Cam Murray.



  • @851 We must be up their with losing top quality players - Brown, Korobeite, JAC, Tatola, Douehi, Papenhuyzen and the troubled trio. Our response is to buy “solid players” who are cheap but don’t add anything to our capacity to play finals football.

    Bro, forget Koro and Brown - had such a gun team during those years they came through, still couldn’t close out a game, by far the biggest problem with our club’s history. JAC from my knowledge asked many times to walk/would not wait under any circumstance when Storm came aknocking, same as paps… Tatola Might be the only one you’ve mentioned we clearly did not care for or rate at the time (big mistake).

    IMHO though, had we kept 2-3 of said players it still wouldn’t equate to finals footy.

    Tedesco, on the other hand…



  • Bennett has just confirmed George Burgess will not be at souths next year, after his suspension his price might be some what reduced

    Absolute bonehead with feet for hands.

    We lost Tatola because they prioritised Felise over him and nobody was particularly complaining at the time - Felise looked the more dynamic player. Don’t know what happened to him, he really just fell off a cliff…
    How is Doueihi a “top quality” player too? If he were in our team P&C would be complaining that he’s too slow…

    Trying to pad the argument with Tatola and Doueihi. Neither are better than what we’ve already got.

    Eels offering around $350k apparently



  • @WT2K He’d be worth it at that price. Maybe offer 375k, but no higher than $400k.

    Steven Marsters from Saints who was talked up a potential WT’s signing going to Rabbits

    He’s been crap for years, it’d just be throwing money at a name…



  • I’d take Burgess at $400K for sure.
    Who are you going to get at that price that’s better…
