Yeah Addo-Carr who supposedly has family up here. Incredibly unlikely, especially since it seems like he could stay in Melbourne for another year since the only club putting any decent offers are the Tigers.

I called for Alvaro and Blacker. Both former Broncos, Blacker came through the same team as Haas, Carrigan and Flegler but was whisked away by a better offer from the Dragons. If Hook is still after Ofahengaue, I wouldn't be against trading for him, he's ready for first grade and the Broncos need to sort their rotation out. Alvaro is just the type of prop forward the club needs, a Bryce Gibbs style defensive player who can help shore up the ruck. Thought he made a nice difference for the Warriors when he went over there as well.

McGrady is one player I'd be keen to get a closer look at. Came through the Tweed Heads system before him and his brother both got signed by Penrith. Scored a few good tries in the NSW Cup and was looking like a top prospect before a serious injury ended his season prematurely. He spent the majority of the season recovering from it and couldn't break into that Panthers line-up. At a 198cm and his try scoring record, he's one of those blue chip prospects I'd be enquiring about.

Of the Queensland Cup players, I'd be keen to give BJ Aufaga-Toomaga another train and trial deal. He came through the Sharks system as a centre and was one of the better-attacking players in the NYC before actually standing out for the Capras alongside Pene who just made his debut for Melbourne not that long ago. He's currently signed with the Dolphins who are now a Warriors affiliate, but I'm not sure if the Broncos arranged that or not.

BJ is back home and played for Goodna this season in the Volunteers Cup.

Was sensational

So this being origin day which is typically the day that the gutless ***** on the board drop news that fans won't like, what are we expecting today? Staggs leaving? Dearden? Both?

Apparently staggs has a player option that he obviously hasn't engaged, so that gives us an indication.
Plus hooper saying Nolan likes to suck moses dick so expect plenty more player options, and Nolan is safe as houses Apparently. Our board is fucking retarded

Until we have a good spine it’s going to be years of pain.

When our best backs player is a centre it’s a problem.

When you have almost 0 top ten players in their position on your roster, it is a long road back.

Unless he signs elsewhere ?

true ... but you said (or at least implied) that the fact he hasn't taken up his option yet, gives as an indication of his thinking.

which is the point i took issue with, because it is plain wrong

we'll be pushing for top 8 next season, which will start our road back and top 4 in 2 or 3 years (if Kevvie recruits wisely)

unless Kevvie is as bad a coach as Seibs was for this group (and we lose 2/3 of our top 3 to injury again)

I disagree. Not enough good players in key positions.

Same rose tinted talk that plagued the forum this time last year.

we easily have the team to be top 8.

smart recruiting by Kevvie and it won't take long to be top 4.

Kevvie is one of the best halves coaches in the game ... under him, Dearden and Milford, could really hit top form and will surprise a few people

we don't need a full overhaul ... just tweaks

With due acknowledgement to the 2020 soup of the injuries we had, the blindsiding of the 6 again rule, the shit coach and the poisonous influence on the culture that mainly came from Boyd, I fail to see how our 2021 roster is 'easily' a top 8 side. I would be happy to see them all lift and play as a team and threaten the 8 but I don't expect any more than that. Sad but true.
