I'd still like to think we could get Grant from the Storm. I dont see a pathway there for him tbh.
Hopefully both Siebs and Harry feel the same way because I would love to see Brissy pick him up ASAP and punt Macca.

I'm happy for the Cowboys and for Robson. Truth be told, I haven't seen a lot of Robson, but he's been highly rated at the Dragons for sometime now and the only reason he can't get a full game is because McInnes is an 80 minute player and one of the best dummy halves in the game.

I look at the Cowboys dummy half situation as another example of club's forcing players into becoming legacy players. There just seems to be this self-fulfilling prophecy where players are kept on because they've played so many games, instead of whether they're still playing good footy or capable of playing good footy in the future.

I'm still holding out hope that Jayden Nikorima will be our Hooker lol, I've always thought that would he his best position after watching him for the U20's and Roosters.

Get your head straight Jayden!!
Apart from his issues he had, I was wondering if he was still involved in footy. Does anyone know for sure?

Paramatta are reportedly interested in signing DWZ mid season to play left center (or maybe fullback with Gutho in the halves)

I wonder if this might make Jimmy realise his chance may not actually be there at Souths. Sad if he has blown his career.

I'm not sure what to make of Watene-Zelezniak.

When Dallin first hit the scene at Penrith, he was being talked about in a similar vein as Tuivasa-Sheck, Trbojevic etc. as an elite back of the competition. I've been watching his progress since he made his debut at NRL level and he's never kicked on. Every now and then he'll threaten to find form, but it isn't long before he's back making rookie mistakes.

I wonder if it's a Penrith problem, whether he was ever really that good or if all those injuries eventually took their toll on him? Either way, I'm curious to see where he ends up. If I'm Dallin, I'd be looking at a club that doesn't necessarily have the fullback position covered. Somewhere like South Sydney would be a good fit. I like the idea of Wests as well since he can reunite with Madge, but I don't think Madge would be as keen to move Mbye elsewhere given he's the captain.

I think like a lot of wannabe fullbacks, he needs to accept that he's a winger. That's where he played his best footy and looked most quality.

Dallin actually reminds me of Michael Gordon, who was strong on the wing but was actually better at fullback. Like Gordon, it's just a matter of whether he can physically handle it and coming off of major surgery, that wasn't the case at the beginning of the season.

Apparently Drinkwater has signed with the Cowboys effective immediately. Might even play for them this week. A real bummer. I would have loved to get him here.

Good signing for them. I can actually see him switching back to 5/8 when Kahu is fit.

Cowboys are making some decent signings. Robson and Drinkwater could really strengthen up their spine. They just need a strike outside back or two.
