Richard Kennar is a solid back and a good signing for us. He’s actually a player who could push for a wing spot.

I just read that Jack Bird is almost certain to play centre to start the year. Bird has also lost 5kg and is ripping in at training.

They're a bit late to the party ... I've been reading that on most reports all preseason

Check out the video on facebook that the locker room just shared. It shows the extras Glenn has been doing to improve his explosiveness and agility as he wants to keep his #11 jersey. It's great that he knows he is under alot of pressure from the young guys and he is doing everything he can to improve. He really is in the right mindset to have his best season to date. I don't think we will see the comfortable Alex Glenn of the past anymore.

He has stated before he has gotten a bit too comfortable and has been bad with take away food. I was moreso referring to that.
I vaugley remember his saying he was having take away food once a day about 4-5 years ago. Don't think it's ever affected his training though, he has always been a great role model.

I believe Seibold was getting Crichton to do a lot of hard work in the middle while he was playing edge back row. If Seibold wants the same thing at the Broncos then I could see him possibly using Tevita in the same way. Would allow us to sure up our middle defensively with both Macca and Fensom in there doing the tackling.

What a list we've got going.. Gotta wonder if there will be any more early releases from contracts

There's no way seibold has 3 second rowers on the bench, and then to compound that the 1 prop on the bench has played 60 minutes of nrl in total ever... Sua, Glenn and fifita all deserve to be in the 17 but a tough call will need to be made on 1 I believe. As amazing as fifita is I think asking him to play 24-27 games as an 18 year old forward may be enough to see him be the odd man out for this year. He will still play around 15 matches due to injury or form but he needs the odd full 80 minutes in the QLD Cup.

Yeah the bench is up for whatever combination Seibs wants. I agree with you. Just would change it up as the season goes, it's a luxury

I also remember reading something / watching a video around the time this came out and vividly remember Glenn saying something along the lines of: his diet was slowing him down and now that he’d stopped eating junk food all the time, he felt much better and had an extra spring in his step.
Obviously that’s not verbatim, but thereabouts.

I dont think we are going to see much of Staggs tbh and i really cant see us wasting TPJ in the backrow with our depth in that position. I still think our front row rotation should be Lodge and Offa starting, TPJ and either Haas or Carrigan from the bench. Real impact from the bench is vital. In regards to the bench, for me it should be 2 front rowers, a back rower and an impact hooker. I think however we could well see another forward and no hooker. I'd actually have no issues in having Staggs there as a utility as i still believe he is a back rower, but i'm not sure we will go that way.

Who would start at lock?

Buggered if i know!

I'm not sure how Seibs will play tbh. TPJ wouldnt surprise me, but i think seeing as he played Sam Burgess there at Souths i'd say he would want somebody with a bigger motor. Now you have made me think about it a little more, i'd actually say Offa would probably be our best option ( unless Seibs plays differently to how he had Souths ). Probably then replace Offa at prop with Tagatese or Mago ( i'd actually have no worries in putting in Carrigan, but i dont think we will ).

Dont think we will risk Bird at lock yet, but still think if he has a good pre season then Savelio could be a dark horse for lock. He has the skills to play there.

Based off Wolfie Wolfie team above, whilst I never thought Bird would be lock with McGuire in the team, with McGuire gone now (I’ll miss him), I think it makes perfect sense to play Bird at lock. He gets more ball (like he wants) and it frees up the opportunity to have either Kahu or Staggs at centre.

I am OK with either option at centre too, as I just feel Kahu will either be left centre or reserve grade, and he is too good for reserve grade.
