Broncos Player Movement and Rumours 2019

Only in Origin.

He doesn't perform like that at club level. He's just your average centre that can't tackle at club level.
He was really good at the Broncos until Hook sent him packing (which i agreed with at the time, like I did now with Roberts). Maybe he just excels starting maroon and at Suncorp!?

I wouldn't mind trying him at fullback, because we can't do worse and he might be a revelation... can always bring Bird in there next season, shouldn't it work out.

I wouldn't break the bank though.

He wasn't good for us. He was getting manhandled easily when he'd be trying to run the ball back, and would completely ruin the starts of our sets. He may have been blasted for applying it team-wide, but Hook's demands for Gagai to put on more size were absolutely spot on.

I agree we could entertain the idea of fullback, on a limited $$ deal, but an absolute "no" to him as a centre.

No to him as a fullback as well... he has no passing game. I don't think he's even that fast

Reported to be on $700k and there is no way in hell we should be paying that much for him... let him stay at the rabbits and screw their cap

Absolutely let them cop it in their cap.

I don't see a problem with McCullough taking up his option. He's just doing what he's entitled to and making sure that even if he has to go, he's not out of pocket. We're not talking a $1m deal that we'll be paying the majority of. If he's on $500k and a club offers him $300 - $350k (which would be reasonable for him), that's not the worst thing ever.

I agree, I just hope that it has been made clear to him that his place in the side will be based on current form, not history with the club or how much of a great guy he is.

Ado Carr made little ground on him when he made the inetrcept.

Honestly I really like and rate Gagai as a player but no thanks.

If he wants to leave a Bennett coached team because he's not getting his favourite position then what makes you think Seibold can manage his attitude any better? I don't want selfish players in the team. I'd rather we focus on players who are top tier professionals who will play anywhere in the team for the betterment of the team.

We've had sooks before who only want to play one position or crack the shits, I'd rather we not go out of our way to sign a player that fits that bill.
