If this is true then we would surely be in the market for a 1 or 6.

1 - Milf or New Signing
2 - Oates
3 - Bird
4 - Staggs
5 - Isaako
6 - Milf or new signing
7 - Deardon
8 - Lodge
9 - Turpin
10 - Haas
11 - Fifita
12 - Gillett
13 - TPJ

14 - Offahengaue
15 - Fledger
16 - Carrigan
17 - Paix

I'd be happy with that.

Is Papenhauzen off contract? I’d love to take one off the storm. Make sure that the storm’s/bellamy’s record without Smith is brought up in negotiations.

He's off contract but I'm pretty sure negotiations to extend at Melbourne are well advanced by now.

They've moved Drinkwater to the Cowboys and even dumped Croft to accommodate him so they're clearly keen to hold onto him.

Pap is signed for next year already.

And is a Sydney boy , no chance he will come up. Pretty sure we inquired about him when they were shopping him around .
He went down to Melbourne? Why would he not do the same to come to Brisbane?

That said though, I don't see it happening. Melbourne have shown they really don't lose guys they really want to keep.

I'd give Oates another go. Something tells me the stink in attitude at the top of the playing group filtered it's way into his form. We've all seen what he can do, he's still young.
We'd have to show faith in him and he'd have to do the same with us. Perhaps a more modest contract for a season or two for both sides to decide what the other is really worth.

Kudos to Seibs if he has the balls to make the major changes. I really hope he does it. He has pretty much bottled the majority of big decisions he has had to make this year. Next year will be a fresh start for him, but if things dont change i cant see him lasting the year quite honestly.

Yeah , Oates deserves another chance but he's turned into a one trick pony. He needs to get better because boyd isn't feeding him anymore. I'm actually thinking that I would give isaako a shot at one, he just needs to make meters and be on the ball. His passing game will come, it's not like fullbacks these days do a heap of ball playing. He also has the work ethic that can make him better, he did well in qcup with this style of play.

Farnworth looked instantly NRL ready. He could easily replace one of them. Though I don’t necessarily agree that we need to move on Oates. I do think he has done a lot of damage to his asking price though.
Experience will be an issue if we do indeed give Boyd and McCullough the flick. I don't think we need to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

With Turpin at hooker where belongs, Milf at 1, Dearden at 7 we are a topline halves player away from having a great spine. I don't think Bird is the answer at all, Croft would suit our needs right now and slot in well, I would even consider Croft and Sezer being signed, but I think Dearden has enormous potential with the right 6 beside him.

It's simple for Boyd, if he doesn't walk away you put him in Qcup and tell him to never show his face at Red Hill again. We can carry his contract for a year and then use the 700k to upgrade Fifi when he's off contract. If the club gives him 15 games next year the horror will continue.

EDIT: make it clear without saying it out loud that that's him done at the Broncos for life. No post-career career at the club on a few hundred thousand, no nothing. Just a season languishing in Qcup in shame.

Even the Dogs had the nuts to do it with Eastwood.
