Any dot points?

- Donuts is a legend
- Donuts did not want to take credit for how good the Storm was during his time there
- Some dude rang in and asked something really vague about a Wynnum Manly forward contracted to the Broncos who wasn't Robati, he was possibly drunk
- They targeted leadership in their recruits, so super happy to get two captains / ex-captains of clubs in Reynolds and James, talks about Capewell setting the standards at Penrith
- Disappointed to lose Coates but the door is open to him to return in '24 and they hope he does
- He spoke about the fact we still have a number of gun kids coming through, cannot keep them all and if you keep one but lose another, you get criticised either way
- He welcomes a new Brisbane team if it is based on an as yet to be seen business case that Vlandys cronies have said is on the way (there was a hint of sarcasm in there but he masked it REALLY well)
- He would like to see more reward for junior development but there is nothing really there at present
- Membership prices will remain the same and merchandising is sort of separate
- He couldn't really answer vaccination questions for Suncorp stadium
- He really praised Scanlon for his work with junior development
- He deflected questions about Walker well and mentioned the excitement of Reynolds coming
- He spoke about the exciting development under Kevvie and praised the end of season form
- He is smooooooooooth

So no mention from him about my love letters then?

Keep playing coy, Dave, it’ll only make me want you more

The Coates one makes me think Donuts has had some conversations with him already. 2 years down in Melbourne to develop and we take him back as a elite winger.

I think there is definitely a plan to get him back and if Bellamy refines the undoubted skill that is there, we are going to get back an absolute weapon.
