I think you mean you hope he doesn't go to the Cows because that'll mean there's no spot for Opacic in first grade :P

He isn't pushing out Latrell or Marsters.
I don't think Marsters is that great tbh, but he is costing them decent coin so they will probably pick him. Even if Mitchell doesn't go there anyway, there is a decent chance Tom could be heading down south.

I read an article that Marsters played the whole of last season on a bung ankle, might be the reason for his massive dip in form, he was one of the better attacking centres in the NRL in 2018.

I liked him in 2018, he had a great offload in his game. I know he had a knee clear out at the end of this season. A lot of Tigers fans seemed glad they were letting him go because he had become fairly lazy, and stopped doing th one percenters. Dunno how much of that was because he was leaving. If it's true and they get Mitchell, they could get badly exposed in defence.

Does anyone else get the feeling Storm are clearing the decks for a big one?
Nope. Old man Smith just ain't what he used to be. The Storm are a team on the decline and players want out. I'm going with that.

They are struggling big time with their backline. Vunivalu, Chambers, Scott and possibly JAC leaving is going to leave a massive hole.
Add Croft to that.

Ain't what he used to be, but still probably the most valuable player in the game. Just speaks of how good he is.

Reckon he has gone a year long, like Thurston. 2020 will just cement Lockyer as the GOAT and the only one of the recent superstars who knew when the fat lady has sung. Melb to finish 6-8.

Disclaimer: This was also my opinion this time last year.

Storm players getting off the ship as quick as possible. They know once smith goes Bellamy will have to coach the side now without a once in a generation player leading the reins

Yeah that's so true. Smith at 80% would still be probably the most valuable possible addition to any side in the NRL besides Souths, and I only say that because they already have Cook so they could use an upgrade elsewhere more urgently.
