I'll be very surprised if Norman is playing for Parra next season from what I've heard. This has been coming for months.

I've heard rumours he will be forced out. But haven't seen anything to do with the Broncos, which is odd, so it's probably happening.

Have always said I'd happily take him back. His attitude was an issue when he used to play Fullback for us, there's no doubt, that's where he developed the pea heart nickname.

But he's been nothing but class for Parra for the last 2-3 seasons, and is improving every single year. Big chance of playing origin next year if he takes another step forward.

He's never even been to an emerging origin camp so I think he's a fair way down the pecking order for whatever reason.

Nope, nopenopenopenope.

Frankly he has a worse attitude than Hayne. We've already seen how much he gives a shit about our jersey (very little) so if he crawls back to our doorstep, tell him where to go.

Yeah if he's cheapish and Wayne wants him and thinks he can work with him then sure. He was in pretty hot form before Moses joined the club and plays better as the dominate half which suits Milf's game.

Yes.

He's actually developed into a good player.

I suspect he's closer to origin than we expect.

I'd still prefer Morgan - hey if we had a huge war chest for Taylor for 2019 we should be able to afford MM.

I think if you're being overlooked for a fullback, then you're not as close as you think.

I don't think Norman was even close to being selected this year. I'm not sure why that would change next year.

There are rumours about his attitude that the senior players don't like.

What Fullback was he overlooked for? I assume you're referring to Munster, who played the entire season in the Halves for Melbourne and was picked primarily for his combination with Cronk & Smith.

Here's a quote from Walters this year after Thurston was ruled out -

“I’m certainly looking at Corey,” Walters said at Wednesday’s Fox League launch of Saturday’s NRL double header at Suncorp Stadium. “We’ve had some conversations around Corey’s behaviour and for me that’s behind him now.
“He’s been outstanding this year on the field for Parramatta and clearly that shows his attitude off the field has improved. His performance in his last start against the Cowboys was first class so he’s in good touch.
“A key factor is that Corey does play on the left side for his club which is an advantage for him. He certainly wouldn’t look out of place in that No.6 jumper.”

6. Norman
7. Morgan
8. Scott
9. Smith (c)

He was actually steering the team around quite well before Moses got there and they switched up the roles. He'd be a very good foil for milf

We used to have a backline filled with fullbacks. This team has 6 centres
