    I read an article a while back saying Jamil was travelling well. May also be time for Funaki to shape up or move on, he has been in our system for a couple of years now.

    I enjoyed the fact that Funaki had the balls to stand up to McGuire during training. A couple of punches were thrown which is silly, but you'd assume McGuire provoked it.

    He's definitely an enforcer that wouldn't be shy in first grade.

    standing up to McGuire at training means nothing if he isn't first grade standard.

    and he not only needs to be first grade standard, but be of a better standard than the other quality forwards that we have in our squad

    Ok there’s some ridiculous shit coming up now. Funaki is nowhere near the standard of middle forwards we have on contract.
    This might sound crazy but maybe we should sign a backup hooker. Macca is the current Qld hooker and we haven’t signed Turpin for next season yet.
    We are also in danger of playing a big fat front rower on the wing over state of origin if we get a couple of injuries so maybe we should wrap up one of these union backs that are trialling with us.

    I think we need to pick a side with two frontrowers at least on the bench, be that Haas and tpj, or (especially if we are using tpj at lock) a mago or tagstese with them.
    Glen or staggs for utility value would fill the 3rd or 4th bench spot, depending on whether tpj plays replacement prop or 2nd row/lock replacement.
    If tpj is used as a prop it frees a spot for a replacement hooker, fifita, or another young forward (carrigan?).
    It all starts with two bench frontrowers we can rely on to carry the momentum. Taga is a big chance, given our lack of them.

    I'd prefer we pick up a promising up and comer and groom him to replace macca
     
  9. I'd prefer we did both but I'm guessing we won't do either. Segs would be too expensive and an up and comer would need to be retained in the face of other offers. Good junior hookers sound like they're thin on the ground.

    He must want a lot. No one has signed him!!! Crazy that he hasn't been picked up.
     
  11. I was taking a nap before.

    I had a dream that we won this game 40-10 and Cameron Smith was sent from the field. Not sin binned, actually sent for constantly getting in the refs face. The ref that sent him was Henry Perenara. I developed a lot of respect for him in my dream.

  14. I had a dream that Scott Minto came out of retirement purely for this match and scored another epic last minute try to win it for the Broncos. With Bellamy's reaction:

  15. It was possible till the part about Smith getting sent for constantly being in the refs face, pure fiction, probably even more chance of my Scott Minto coming out of retirement then that happening lol

    Maybe the only thing we can do now is develop Nikorima into a 9 like we should have done with Hunt

  17. Perhaps but I'm not sure he is robust enough. He may well be. He's certainly got enough skill.

    He's a gun when he's on. He'll most probably start
