Below is how I would compare the likely best 17 from players available for dogs vs broncos.
From the below I have broncos 12 to dogs 5
Fullback Allan Niu/Isaako Dogs (but potential to lose that if Niu comes good) Wing DWZ Herbie Broncos Left Center Hopoate Copley Dogs Right Center Cotric Staggs (Coates whilst Staggs injured) Broncos (at full strength) Wing Okunbor Coates (Isaako whilst Staggs injured) Broncos Five-Eight Wakeham or Lewis?? Milf Broncos Halfback Flannigan Dearden Broncos Prop Napa (lol) Lodge Broncos Hooker Marshall-King?? Turpin Broncos Prop Luke Thompson Haas Broncos Second Row Josh Jackson Glenn Dogs (because Jackson … but it's probably pretty even) Second Row RFM Riki Dogs (RFM goes alright and Riki is an unknown and could surpass him) Lock Adam Elliott Asiata Dogs (Asiata a bit of an unknown, but could surpass him) Utility Sione Katoa (lol) Macca/Paix Broncos Middle Stimson?? Carrigan Broncos Middle Hetherington TPJ Broncos Utility Forward Britt/ Waddell/ To'omaga/ Ofahiki/ Some other random they already had last year Flegler/ Oates/ Bullemor/ Teo Broncos
Fair points and to be honest I am reserving judgement on nearly the whole team until this year. Seiboldy created such a monumental clusterfuck that I don't know how much the players can be blamed.I know Teo is old and was ordinary last year, lets not forget he came in to the side late and needed to get up to speed in the NRL again.
That said, at his best (and yes I know he is past that) he was miles ahead of Glenn, would you start Teo over Glenn or even have him on the bench instead of Glenn with a preseason under his belt?
I think Paix is ready. It think Turpin is our number 1. For the money Macca is on I would be glad if someone took him.Paix isn't ready. Luke should retire. Macca is definitely better than both of those.
The only way I'd agree to his early release is if it freed up funds for a signing to improve our squad this year.
We need to learn from the good clubs. No releases if there's nothing in it for us.
If you include all 26 players on the Broncos website and add Ben Te'o, David Mead, John Asiata and Tyson Gamble. It's 30.Thought there was still a few places left
Hoping both Bullemor and Gamble hang in.If you include all 26 players on the Broncos website and add Ben Te'o, David Mead, John Asiata and Tyson Gamble. It's 30.
Gamble has yet to be officially confirmed and both Bullemor and Hetherington could be on development deals. I expect Gamble and Bullemor to be in the NRL squad, leaving the Broncos with 1 spot.
Suited and we're going for the flush, baby!He's been dealt a 2/7 hand for his first year.
