apparently Hynes is eyeing an early retirement.
Yeh well that's just poor player management and a inability to gauge his potential, it wasn't hard to see he had promise and should of been valued high cause in a matter of 18 months later he was good enough to be staring in origin series wins...No. He grew up idolising Thurston and pretty much wanted out back in the pre season to the Cowboys but we rejected it. No point having someone around who doesn't want to be here and who could blame him for how we treated him by throwing him to the wolves because Seibold had no fucking idea how to use him and expected him to the answer to our prayers at halfback. No wonder the kids confidence was shot all of last year. Also had he stayed he would've been behind Mam, Gamble etc whereas he saw an opportunity up north to be mentored by JT
I get what you're saying though if he wanted out then it was already to late but it shouldn't have got to that point, the fact we let Hunt, Dearden, Walker, Ponga, Munster, Grant all go and now struggling for guys in key positions and needing to buy a aged HB is not good.
you realise that playing rugby league in Queensland at some point doesn't mean they were on the Broncos books.
we never had Munster or Grant
Hunt was offered $1.2 million a season for the Dragons which rightfully blew us out of the water (and at the time pretty much everyone in rugby league thought Milford had the higher ceiling)
I personally wouldn't have paid Ponga what the Knights offered him for the first contract, and certainly wouldn't have given him a pay rise. he has never repaid the Knights for the faith they had in him
Walker was a fuckup
