Jock Madden's Manager, Chris Orr, says:

“Jock had a lot of interest and it came down to either Panthers or the Broncos,” said his manager Chris Orr of PSM.

“After meeting ‘Kevvie’ Walters and visiting the club, he had made up his mind that he wanted to join the Broncos.

“The added bonus of learning from an experienced halfback in Reynolds, whilst competing with Mam for the No.6 jersey, really appealed to Jock.”

You need to get out more ...
My step-dad's name is Jock. Well actually his name is Norman, but he's gone by "Jock" since his early teens. There are worse names than Jock you see.

Willison did both shoulders against the Blackhawks, his rehab will be slow.
Ohh boy! This kid really looked promising when he came on last year. Sad that he has done ACL and had to wait long time to recover to start playing again this year.
Didn’t looked confident enough during the only game he’s on field this year. It’s sad that he has done both his shoulders. I am really gutted for him. Hope he doesn’t loose focus and love of the game rather come out real good with determination on the other side like Patty did this year. Want to see this lad succeed.

If I can't wait for Jock Madden to arrive does that mean I have Jock itch.....?

so 11 players from this years squad are moving on in 2023

that leaves just 10 players from Seibold's 2020 wooden spoon side.

looks like the cleanout is now complete, moving forward only tinkering should be necessary *touch wood*

Probably kids for the most part

Turps -> Smoothy
Brenko
James
Hosking (was he in the top 30??)
Roberts (T&T)
Kelly -> Madden
Gamble
Kennedy
TMM -> Walsh
Mead

Upgraded to top 30
- Mozer is Top 30 next year
- Mariner as well or was he already??
- Willison maybe as well

We’re pretty light on for forward depth looking at that. Trusting in a lot of kids again there.

Currently, the forwards are:
Middles: Carrigan, Jensen, Flegler, Haas though he won’t be there, Willison, Bayliss-Brow, Robati, Hetherington
Back row: Riki, Capewell, Robati, Te Kura, Piakura, Staggs?
Hooker: Smoothy, Paix, Walters, Mozer

lathers a lot of youth in there, promising for sure but unproven in a lot of ways. Am I forgetting someone?
