Broncos chairman Karl Morris is ready to jizz:
“Look, who wouldn’t want Cam Smith, he is a legend of the game. But I can honestly say I haven’t spoken to him and I don’t know anyone at the Broncos who has spoken to him. The ball is in his court. If Cam called any club tomorrow and said he wanted to play for them, including the Broncos, you would send a limousine to his house."
“Which of the 16 clubs would not want Cam on their books? But we haven’t had any talks so we haven’t had any plans to sign him.”
This follows Mal Meninga denying interest:
“We haven’t talked to Cam Smith, that is 100 per cent fact. It really is that simple. There is all sorts of talk about him living on the Gold Coast and playing for us, but we haven’t spoken to him. I don’t have any idea what Cam is doing. I don’t know if he’s retiring. I’m in the dark like everyone else. But I know he won’t be at the Titans."
“Look, the reality is he is a Melbourne boy and the Storm have some very powerful businessmen. Because he was down at Mudgeeraba in a light blue shirt kicking a footy around in boots people want to think he’s going to sign with the Titans. I wasn’t behind the toilet shed trying to sign him I can tell you. He won’t be with us, simple as that.”
Nope, no Mal back there
Likewise Justin Holbrook:
“Does that mean people will finally stop asking me?” I was always happy with Mitch Rein, Erin Clark and Tanah Boyd (at hooker), that’s why I was never too worried about it all. It was good for the hype, but I said all along you need to ask him what he wants to do. I have never spoken to him. We will see what he ends up doing.”
