This is exactly what many if us have been suggesting the club do ...

You need to put your bias aside and look at things logically (I know this goes against everything BHQ stands for)

Unless your hiring Bellamy or Robinson, you need top notch support staff (and even they have quality people to support them)

We could do far worse than replicating the All Blacks coaching structure
I am not suggesting we don't have support staff but am concerned by the phrase "an army of support staff" which conjures images of more coaching staff than players which sounds like massive overkill and an attempt at a quick fix which is just not possible.
You are right that I am biased regarding Morris (and a few others) and for good reason. The last 18 months is ample justification for that just for starters.
No idea what the All Blacks coaching structure is like but it obviously works so anything we can take out of that I wouldn't have a problem with.

Hopefully whoever the next coach is realises Bullemor has potential to be a gun middle forward. Stop trying to make him an edge because he has speed.

Where do you see him fitting in next year? Bench prop?
Yep. Hopefully he can be on a bit for Carrigan, especially while in attack. Carrigan is an absolute weapon, but as soon as we enter the attacking 20 his is a massive hindrance.

8. Haas
9. Turpin
10. Lodge
11. TPJ
12. Glenn
13. Carrigan

14. Paix
15. Flegler
16. Riki
17. Bullemor

This is assuming JoeO is sent packing and we don't make any signings. I'm concerned about Lodge in the new style of game, I hope this year was just because of his knee issues, because he was barely first grade standard, just so slow.

Yeah I generally agree with that line up. I personally would not start the season with Glenn starting in the backrow. I think he should be used from the bench if anything. I know people here won't enjoy reading that, but I don't care. I think Riki deserves to start and Tevita deserves to be benched. I want to see Oates given a real shot in the backrow.. If he fails then he fails and won't be re-signed. I agree that Ofa should be shown the door.. He's on 600k a season.. Ideally Lodge would be gone too.

A couple of signings (players without contracts for 2021 yet) could really go a long way in making us look like more serious competitors.

Hang on why would you sign Friend when we have Turpin, who is already better than him and 7-8 years younger. Welch is also an average prop doing his job in a good system, when are people going to learn about signing forwards from the Storm. I think only Tohu Harris has been successful.

I have no issues with not starting, or even picking Glenn, but he should be chosen ahead of Oates. And TPJ is too good not to start.

Those who have left the Storm and been good:

Cronk
Harris
Widdop
Grant
Turpin (arguable sure)
Drinkwater
Inglis
Folau

There's a few but yes, not many props leave Melbourne and go onto bigger and better (or even equal) things.

Can we please get Pat out of the lock position. He is a prop who can play lock, not a lock who can play prop. As for Bullemor, with the right development he could easily become a weapon in the edge. If he stays as a middle forward, he is always going to be a bench impact player imo. It suits his game far better than if he is a starter.

Our big issue is we need a Fullback, a five eighth and a hooker because none of ours are good enough ( unless Milf can hit some form )

Article just now in the CM alleging St George contacted Green 2 weeks ago about their head coaching vacancy, to which Green replied, "thanks but no thanks".

Perhaps he has a better offer in the pipeline? Hopefully nothing has been 'promised' to him by certain people.

Poor bugger is going to be disappointed, QLD will need a coach though.In all seriousness that is worrying.

The whole world: pick Kevvie!
Broncos board: tell me more about this green guy?

Ever heard him speak? He is very articulate and a keen thinker on the game. Storm very much want to keep him.

Your point about Harris is true, but id put Welch in the same tier; Storm would not really want to lose him, and his best days a ahead of him. He reminds me of Carrigan, and, as you know, every team needs a whole lot of Paddy..!
