I reckon Bennett would love to see nothing more than the current Broncos admin fall on their sword, so I'm not trusting any "recommendations" he'd be giving us. Reynolds may about to hit his "played one year too long", and Su'a is quite likely dropped for discipline / effort reasons, that'd be quite the combo to gift-wrap to a team you'd love to sabotage.
Exactly. No other coach in the comp spruiks their current players for other teams as “great fits”. It stinks to high heaven. He even admits souths Cap is fucked......something that happened under his watch...again.

That said I am excited to see us with Reynolds in the side next year. Will wait and see.

I don’t think what we should have got out of that article is that Gagai is coming here
No I think they were obviously saying that Gagai will be taking up their cap and forcing Sua out. I was just responding to the poster on how Gagai could fit.

I’m not sold on Sua, would far rather Capewell. Su’a is dropped rn and was previously moved on due to attitude, which appears to be happening again here. I’d take him on a low contract but agin, I’d much prefer Capewell.

"We have some guys here that I want to see play first grade before the year is out, some of our younger players, and they will get those opportunities provided that they’re doing everything they can at Intrust Super level.

"We will give them a chance at the next level up to give them a taste of what it’s like to play in the NRL."


Wonder who it could be?. Mam, Piakura and Willison, only ones running around in cup not to play yet.
Mam is one i really want to see come through. I really think he has the type of game that would be complimentary to reynolds in the halves.

Reynolds running the show, mam just following the ball and playing eyes up. He seems to be achieving the basics in ISC and appears to defend pretty well at that level too. Fingers crossed he is a half that achieves his potential but doesnt get away.

Especially with his talking up the price of a player. That sounds like how we got into the current mess. Overpriced comfortable players

Unless su’a is on a wicked cheap deal what’s the point? We have plenty of backrowers…he’s also been dropped for a middle and a rookie.
Agree. Unless we’re getting him extra cheap he’s just a burden on our cap, but I suppose it’s giving Souths some relief if we take him so it will probably eventuate.

are you tired of niu now? you've been calling for him for the last 2 years!
He's getting too old and has probably played too many nrl games.

In terms of Oates, if he can't get a deal that matches the one he has here, he will stay.

Not sure we do.
Glenn - trash and has to go
TPJ - our best second rower but can also play lock (a troublesome position for us) and is somewhat suspect in defence
Piakura - our best prospect coming through... sounds like he's getting comfortable with ISC so a debut this year looks on the cards. Might still be ISC next year before starting in 2023... also noteworthy that Piakura can play left side
Riki - reasonable prospect coming through but could be more suited to the middle. Also need to remember his form at the start of the year starting in 2nd row

And that's pretty much it.

So if Glenn gets punted next year we'd be going into 2022 with basically 1 second rower in TPJ (who could be considered makeshift anyway) and 2 prospects (one of which has already been dropped this year).

I think we definitely need another one and Sua is a known NRL quality 2nd rower.

Sua at Souths seems to be in about the same position he was when he left Broncos, he is down on form and struggling to get into the first team.

I'd say he has some motivation issues.
