Surely Macca goes if it’s a genuine 3yr offer from the dragons. Would we consider trading McInnes for Macca?
I think the club isn’t wanting to let Macca go because they know that there is no way the storm would release B.Smith (if it is true that we want him). The storm hate us, add to the fact they’re playing hard ball with Donaghy, there is no way smith would get a release..

Unless Coates goes a year early.

Lachlan Maranta has a construction job, sure we could pick him up quite easily 😅

He suprisingly has a decent job for a pretty big construction company. Suprising stuff really
He was Avery average winger but his best spot was fullback. I saw h play there and he wasn't too bad (still wouldn't pick him ahead of any of our other options).
The thing with him was he was eeking every little ounce of talent he could find (there wasn't much) to get as far as he could.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if he applied his talents to something else he could make a fortune like his grandad.
Heck, he could even end up owning the broncos one day!

So Meyn reporting in the CM that the sticking point in releasing Macca to the Dragons is that the Dragon's want us to subsidise a portion of his contract for the 2021 season ... and the club have grown some balls and told the Dragons to get fucked
Thank **** finally! **** the dragons what a bag of dicks they are.

Are people overrating B Smith? He’s energetic and fearless but I don’t see him as a player to build a club around.

I really see him losing impact once teams figure him out and he leaves the storm system. Plus his off field persona, while somewhat endearing also paints him as entirely loose and that’s within the constraints of the strict storm standards. I don’t dare imagine how disruptive a guy with his personality could do to our team who already seems to be very impressionable and struggling with professionalism.

I think B Smith is a massive risk on a big contract.

He does seem like a loose canon but what is there to figure out? His play style is entirely run as hard as possible and play to win, you cannot counter that. The real risk is him relaxing if he gets a big contract in a system that's more relaxed but he doesn't seem the type to play at 90%.

I feel that he has to learn to play at 90% or he will do himself some serious damage/burn out.
