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.
I’ve thought this myself, backing it 100%.

Gamble is a six. He isnt going to be an impact bench player, he isnt a hooker and i doubt at this stage in his career he can be manufactured into one. He's just a player who offered something we didnt have this year in that he was just all effort and did his job just like when Turpin got in people loved him basically because he wasnt Macca but then the more he played the more his deficiencies showed. You can get away with it in some positions, but i dont believe you can in the spine.

I still think if he can fix up his discipline then the 6 shirt is his for the taking next year.

I'm happy with signing Ash on a low price deal for a year.
As he is at the moment if a couple of the halves go down injured or suspended he's a really good depth option.

I'm with you as a fan he has bucket loads of talent just never been in the right environment to kick on with it. Titans put massive pressure on him being as young as he was on that contract with no real high quality person around to mentor or help him to progress his game.
He seemed to play abit more free when Fogarty came and played well with Sexton. Reynolds is levels above them and could teach him alot.

Even when the pressure was off Taylor (by the time he'd been written off as a superstar and people were seeing if he was at least serviceable) he was still shit, and seemed to show a poor attitude. Worse still, he got a fair amount of grub in to his game, not in a Gamble "competitive" way, but a Luai-like arrogant manner. He's wrecked physically and mentally, do not want.

I hope he gets a chance. If his heads in it then I'm on board. What he earns is unimportant to me. Always thought he might fully develop later in his career.

Lachlan Lewis and Billy Walters should both be given train and trial deals. Let them play Q Cup and earn a spot in the squad. At least then Billy can avoid the nepotism comments

If Taylor was available at base wage or close to, we’d be stupid not to sign him, it’s a risk worth taking at that low a price. Anything over 200k, nope.

I generally agree but..................I'm old and cranky.

We let him go to take up an opportunity, we did him a solid and then asked him to come back and repay the favor and he turned his back on us to fill his pockets with cash..............the footy gods say fark him and no thanks.

Anybody that chooses the Titans over us for cash should never be welcome back.

Can someone confirm that Taylor's major issue is that he has arthritis or is playing without cartilage in his hip joints and is unable to train regularly as a result.

Rubbish, the halves merry go round was partially about injuries and suspensions, and partially about trying out options for the future

So remind us again who'll be playing five-eighth in 2022. List them all.

the courier mail have come up with a new way to get clicks without having to go to the trouble of writing another negative story about us ... keep changing the headline so people think it's a new story.

As long as it sells papers, digital subscriptions and gets advertisement negative stories are as good as good ones, perhaps even better for them.

Taylor hasn't really ever been the guy to light it up, I can't remember a single game where he tore the opposition to shreds. For me it was all hype, the Titans bought into it and he never delivered on it.
