Broncos Player Movement and Rumours 2019

Just wondering if anyone knows any guns we have signed that are younger then 18, like in the academy
Brendan Piakura, Jack Martin, Jake Simpson, Josh James, Lance Bagon, Myphala Ah Chong, Reece Walsh, Sam Walker, Tesi Niu, Tom Dearden, Xavier Coates.

Those were the Broncos signed players that represented the Queensland U18's last year, few names to keep an eye on.

I'm personally excited about the development of Niu, everything I've seen of him is very, very promising.

Coates as well -

Coates and Walsh looked very very good.

Curiosity talking here. Can anyone tell me how the players get paid? Do they get it weekly, fortnightly, monthly, yearly or does it vary?
Mate broncos pay their players 1million\week into their account that's on the cap, even our juniors. The NRL know this but choose to allow it because we get all the benefits apparently. The only player who isn't on 1mil\week is Jack Bird who, as the rumours suggest is on around 3.5-4million a week.

But this isn't counting the brown paper bags that Andrew Gee personally brings down to training every day, which are rumoured to contain anywhere between 350-400k per paper bag. Players who stay back and do extras receive between 5-8 extra paper bags.

On top of this all our players in the top 30 are accruing somewhere between 10-15 million a fortnight in 3rd party payments sourced by the club...

At least that's what I'm led to believe by the Sydney media.

Only guys that played U18 Queensland last year from that list was Niu, Dearden and Coates. Walsh was U16 captain and Piakura lock. That list is the Emerging U18 camp list from January.

Martin and Niu are playing ISC they're the only two promoted already. Martin was Jets MM captain and made his debut against Tweed in ISC. As I have said a few times now Walker could play ISC but is only in grade 12.

Have you seen much of Niu this year? How's he travelling?

I did notice that he's playing primarily Centre for the Magpies, which is interesting, I assume they have an established Fullback of sorts that's keeping him out of the 1 jersey?

He’s been ok, bit hard in a team getting flogged by 70 and winning two games. Souths are in terrible form. His defence is holding up that’s something.

Badel saying on NRL tonight that Oates is fielding offers of around 750K per season from Sydney clubs.
If someone is offering him $750k he should take it. Sure he gets our sets off to a good start but is he worth $650k more than someone like Sivo? No. He is pretty much the biggest Gumby of a winger in the game. Would surely be one of the worst under the highball, useless on grubbers and has bombed his fair share. I like him as a player and seems like a good bloke but fuck me he shouldn't be on that sort of money.
