We need a half. Maybe Townsend if cronulla need to offload a player for ramien. Lachlan Lewis has improved but under contract. Croft defense is ordinary, sezer or elgey are possible. Hastings is who I'd try and get in a player swap for boyd, Gillett or Macca.

Which makes no sense why Macca was rushed straight back into the team after his injury. We were building nicely at that stage and even beat the roosters. Then to persist with turpin at halfback..... Explain that shit seibass....
He wasn’t rushed back in. He was on the bench for Turpin. It wasn’t until Turpin had an absolute stinker against the Eels then Dearden got injured and Turpin moved to halfback that McCullough returned to the hooking role.

We will be in some trouble next year if the Arthars I've been watching is going to be a starter next year.

Well the moment he declared himself fit he was straight back into the team at the expense of segeyaro if I remember correctly. Which in itself was strange too. McCullough as impact on the bench? That’s laughable. And how come turpin never got the hooking role again after one bad performance?

Hastings is a ball running half and a poor man's Jack bird. Is this the guy you want steering our team around the park?

For me, that was the confirmation sign that Seibold didn't have a clue what he was doing. It was crystal clear Macca's sluggish ball play was gumming up the works. He should never have been allowed near the dummy half role again.

Andrew McCullough is truly a special player.

Special, in that he has managed to play 260 NRL games, and 3 NRL games for Queensland, without being any form of running threat or able to hit a man on the chest with the ball.

A sobering thought I had earlier this year when the Broncos played their 800th game was that Macca has played in well over a quarter of those...

Last year I suggested we sign Billy Walters. The Tigers have signed him, it is yet to be announced though. Just wait for it. I assume he will be Marshall’s long term replacement.

He has a good kicking game. It really depends on what money he is willing to accept. I think the cupboard is pretty bare for good halves and he is the best of what is there.

What about a 2-1 swap with the Bulldogs for Will Hopoate?

They need a hooker in McC and an 'effort-talker-whatever' in Boyd.
Hopoate is a gun, can play centre, fullback and 5/8. A class ball player and steady head in general play.
Make it a 3-1 swap, throw in Bird too as a bonus - so that our cap has enough to retain Fifita.

They just signed Katoa from Penrith. They don’t need Macca.

Are people honestly proposing swap deals for Boyd and AM9 with other clubs?

Why on Earth would other clubs take them off our hands given the money they have to be paid and the kind of year they've had with Brisbane?

Surely we used up all that good luck convincing the Warriors to take Kodi?

What if we tell the warriors they can have David Fifita as long as they also take Boyd and Macca. Imagine their surprise when this **** shows up.

I haven't seen a great deal of Billy Walters, admittedly, but what I did see is that his greatest claim to fame will forever be 'son of Kevvie'. Won't be losing any sleep over not signing him I don't think.
