We mustn't be far off our top 30 now. I've got 4 spots left between these guys, but there are probably more I'm unaware of.

Riki (he's featured heavily on the Broncos website lately, wouldn't be surprised if he's already been upgraded to top 30)
Bullemor (had a development contract for 2021 according to nrl.com, but may have been upgraded, listed on Broncos website)
Kennar (listed on Broncos website)
Hetherington (listed on Broncos website)
Piakura
Kelly (not sure if he's returned after being sent to Souths Logan)
Luke (is he still training with us?)
Isaiah Tass (on a new development contract, doubt he'd be upgraded to top squad so soon)

EDIT: Forgot to add Callum Gahan, Brendan Frei and Ben Nakubuwai who Big Pete mentioned had been spotted training this pre-season
Props Logan Bayliss Brow and Leivaha Pulu are also training with the NRL squad.

Was reading this,would or should there be any interest from us for 2022 for dufty if we could get him for around the 300-400k mark?
I rate Dufty, wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him but that hinges on how well (or not well) Isaako/Niu play. If we can use the players we already have, we save money to spend elsewhere.

I would really like a fullback in the mould of AJ Brimson or Papenhuyzen. I think they would compliment our forward pack well. Dufty is a similar style, is affordable, and has good potential. 2020 he shocked me with his improvement in his passing game.

With the lack of quality fullbacks on the market i would give consideration to Dufty, pending how Isaako or Niu perform. He wouldn't be high on my list, but I would certainly keep an eye on him.

Player swap with Macca

I’d be all for it except he refuses to defend.

this should give some people a bit of a lol,

Foxsports have said that the player the Tigers want in exchange for Billy Walters is Reece Walsh ... we've told them there is no chance of that happening

Tigers were told two weeks ago that Walsh isn't on the table. Broncos have plans for Walsh and it doesn't involves playing NRL for the Tigers.

All Kevvie’s work has been around adding people that will add to the place on and off the field. He was very deliberate.

Still one spot left but Tigers want a player swap and Broncos can’t do that.

Anyone else thinking Cameron Smith will play for a club in 2021 and that he’s just waiting until close to season kick off, or possibly even later in the season to sign the deal so it’s less under the cap?

One thing I would be supremely confident of Cameron Smith giving zero fucks about is whatever team he played for and their salary cap position.

If he does play it will be the storm and no one else.
As for only playing part of the season to lessen the deal under the cap that is a novel idea but I wouldn’t put anything past that mob.

Kobe Hetherington and Richie Kennar are still listed on the Broncos website, so if you combine the NRL.com list and the Broncos list, we've got 1 spot left. Tyson Gamble is the one missing from both, although there is an article from last year that said his future was secured with the club pending paperwork. Who knows if this is still the case though with the coaching change and all.

I imagine those guys on the fringe like Kobe, Richie and Tyson accept that they may not be signed until late into the pre-season as the Broncos keep their options open.

Possibly still waiting on Mann
