Well thats requiring Siebs to change his set-up; he prefers 3 middle forwards on the pitch and that includes lock. TPJ stays a edge forward for now based on that alone, but its also his best position..
- Merged

Anyone remember Lexy playing as a left centre for us a few times last year..?....killed blokes out there with his defence. A underrated aspect of the club keeping him but im sure there wold be games where that bite in defence would be most welcomed by the coach
He was a competent fill in at least defensively and I agree it does add to his value to the side overall, but like last year, he should really only be deployed there in an emergency scenario where out genuine Centre options are unavailable for any reason.

CM posted an article regarding Fifita.
I cannot read it however the title seems to indicate that Fifita isn't a lock to re-sign with the Broncos.
More then likely just click bait but if someone can read the article and post a summary that would be handy.

Basically says he’s in no hurry to sign, a few quotes from him, it’s a business these days etc. Then quotes from mum including that he won’t go overseas, Sydney would be no good for him, Brisbane is good for him etc.

We just need to lock him up ASAP for as long as possible.
It has the potential to be a distraction for him early on in the season.
I don’t think he will go anywhere but surely we can get it done sooner rather then later.

Said that the Broncos helping him in Bali was what they had to do and what any club would do essentially. He comes across as very arrogant and incredibly ungrateful in general.

Badel had a hand in this article and was magically able to tie it into the article he wrote a few days ago ...

so basically a few days ago he wrote how the Titans would use their signing of Fa'asuamaleaui from the Storm as their "secret weapon" to lure Fifita down the M1, since Fifita is really good mates with Fa'asuamaleaui.

then today he quotes Fifita's mum pretty much saying that Brisbane is home and Dave has no intentions of leaving QLD

Badel must have forgotten that Fifita and Haas are best mates.

He didn't forget ... it just won't get as many clicks, as saying that a team as bad as the Titans are a chance at signing the hottest free agent in the league, would

I’ll be honest, I’m sick of Fifita. Great player yes but I think he is rubbish for the culture here. No player is bigger than the club but he thinks he is.
Tend to agree BFL but he is an incredibly talented player, if they let him go to that players' graveyard down the M1 I think I'm pretty much done ... although I do have a 2020 season pass ... hmmm ... I'll need to think about this some more.

If Fifita mucks around too much I'd be happy to pick up Frizell with his money.
If hes looking to sign for only 2 years with an eye to cashing in on a second Brisbane team then IMO Frizell adds more value. Just as talented, ultra competitive and adds that experience we lack atm.

The other person who would be a handy pick up if we were to lose Fifita at the end of the year would be Ardie Savea.

Probably the best flanker in union, and potentially looking to switch to a powerhouse NRL team next year.

Ponga poaching: Knights fear Broncos more than All Blacks

Knights CEO when asked about the All-Blacks potentially poaching Ponga -

"I think they're (Broncos) a bigger threat to be honest with you rather than the All Blacks," Gardner said.

"This All Blacks thing might be real, it might not be real. I don't really know.

"But certainly you look at who the big club is with the money that they can splash out on him, certainly the Broncos would be a club.

"That's why we'd like to get a deal done sooner rather than later. If he goes to the open market it will be a harder deal for us.

"I've always said publicly, I think KP will take less money to stay here. I think he's happy, I think the family's happy here.

Ponga comes across to me as a seriously competitive kid. He wants to win premierships, and he won't be doing that at the Knights anytime soon. It's a valuable bargaining chip.

"Look Kalyn, we're offering you a million dollars a year to play behind the best pack in the game. Use your brain, man."

The knights have put together a really good squad, and if they do a manage to sign Frizell then I think they’re squad isn’t that far off of ours for overall rating.
