I’m not to worried about Walters starting he just had a kid and the way I see it is Walters is just looking out for his son and making sure he has a bit of financial security for the next few years. If he becomes a good and useful footy player than thats a bonus. Won’t here a word from me complaining he is definitely serviceable to fill in at 9 or 6 for the odd game due to suspension of injury so I’m not to concerned. Low money and passes the dick head test as well so he’s fine.
He’s 28 next year and has played 12 games - he won’t become a good player. If he’s anything other than a 3rd string hooker or a 5th string half than he is being selected on something other than merit.

What is it with you and so many other people who can’t just live with depth signings. Get over yourself he is on minimum money just about and he is a decent enough player to be in a nrl side let alone a squad so get over yourself and move on.

Settle down bud. I wasn’t complaining. I’m just replying to the post about him becoming good and the posts about him potentially starting. He’s a very average player but he is depth as you said, which is exactly what my post said. If he isn’t depth then something’s gone wrong. If he is depth then there isn’t really an issue.

Just dropped in the CM ahead of tomorrow's final. A peak at Broncos: TNG. Can't post it here.

Like this post if you want me to DM it to you.

Standard response when you can't dispute anything I said.
Nah you just not worth my time, I rather lift up a young man that has achieved more than myself. Billy is a footballer, if he is anything like his father his character a lone earns him a depth position in this team.

Oh right, so maybe all players in the NRL should earn the exact same wage, as players being paid less would be disrespectful.

Maybe we should sign Lachlan Lewis and Jack Johns, as their father are football players.

Or, in the real world, we could just a players ability on what they themselves have done on the field. And I feel a bit sorry for you that you have achieved less in life than Billy Walters, a bloke earning minimum wage in his career field.

When you have no argument, it's easy to say the stuff you have to try and avoid an argument you know you can't win.

Links to Peachey back again

Probably written by his manager to spark some interest.

Doesnt even mention that Broncos are interested just that we should be, which we shouldn't, because Peach is not what we need.

I'm sure Peach might like to stay in SEQ, but it would seem his best bet is Sydney.

As much as I love the guy as a player I still think Gamble is a depth half. The fact he’s our best option says more about the squad than Gamble.
Unless Kevvie bites down and makes Kotoni five-eighth out of the season gate, it looks like 2022 will be another year of musical halves. If Staggs remains in the centres, Gamble with be 6. No question. With Albert next in line. Neither are premiership winning halves, but they can get us into the finals.

If Staggs does play 6, then Gamble will go to the bench, and be fashioned into an impact dummy half. Where he'll be a revelation. I'll be banging on about this a lot more, getting told to shut up, and then it will happen. You heard it here first. Again.

I'll go back to my corner now.

1)Reynolds + Gamble/Kelley is premiership capable - i think you are wrong there.
2)Staggs wont move from centre. Strike weapon with speed to burn. Herbie will pair him and Cobbo rotated and progressively brought in.

With a gun fullback and hooker...yes.

With Tesi and Turpin it should have us battling for one of the bottom top 8 spots (assuming no crazy injuries to key players)
It's going to be interesting for Reynolds: he's going from the strongest, most stable spine in the NRL (Walker, Mitchell, Cook) - that could happily plug straight into the NSW/Test team - to a mish mash of whoever Kevvie decides to try this week. I wonder how much say he'll have into who he partners?

All of the say, without saying much at all. How he gels with pivots personally, professionally and in practice will swing the vote.
