Not sure I share your view of a top four roster. Roster is lacking for me. BUT I hope I’m wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time.

Premiership window over? Harsh reality facing Souths as they deal with life after Bennett and Reynolds

Adam, Blake was nervous under the high ball. Has been since he came into grade. He’ll be better for the experience. Hoping he has a huge 2022. If Latrell moves to centre, he’ll see plenty of game time.

Hey Cam, the same was said about Price at the Dragons having his fingerprints all over the Dragons. I guess time will tell. Trent Barrett received huge praise for the Penrith attack last year too as an assistant but look at the Bulldogs. Have they been any better under his guidance?
I thought Dylan Walker re-signed with Manly?
Here’s hoping Ilias kicks on in a big way next year.

Sorry Diplomatt, didn’t realise Melbourne have had a change in coach and marquee 7 at the same time? Don’t underestimate the loss of Wayne or Reynolds…

Lazy article? Perhaps. Although I did have to look up the off-contract lists and that took at least 30 seconds of googling and skim reading 😂

Going to be up against it, that’s for sure.

I agree Tony.

Such a shame Latrell wasn’t out there, Adam. They played so well this year.

Jimbo, if Mitchell plays, the game could’ve been anything. Shame he wasn’t out there.

I thought Burton was half a chance for the Churchill … just quietly

Difficult night for Paulo. I thought Johnston was good.

7.5? Wow. He looked nervous for the 80 mins. I was nervous for him every time he touched the ball. I feel for the kid but it’s a 5 for me. 8 games or 180 games. It’s a 5.

I like it. Think he would thrive in a new environment, under a coach who was a successful No.7

Pearce, Brooks and Taylor? Slim pickings as NRL battlers consider halfback options

WOW!!

Pearce, Brooks and Taylor? Slim pickings as NRL battlers consider halfback options

Change of scenery could be just the thing he needs (coach, town, teammates, system etc)

Hastings at 13, 6, 7 or 14 is a good result. He’s class. Really turned the corner since going overseas!

I can’t say I have seen enough from Lam that has me convinced, he is a better back-up than what most teams already have.

Change of scenery could be good for all parties. Either that or have him at 6 and a traditional half guiding the team and let Brooks create and not game manage??

Do you mean in my article or by News Corp and Triple M?

Well said

Me too. Strange decision.

Utility players in demand: Who is your club chasing?

Meaney is a wonderful player but he’s a 1 or a 2. Or he’s not a six or a nine. Nikorima, however!

Utility players in demand: Who is your club chasing?

Absolutely it is. That’s why so many clubs are specifically chasing these players

Utility players in demand: Who is your club chasing?

I’d take him for that. Handy player. Hope he is used right. Was one fire at the Dogs!
