So Pangai junior to the Dogs. Vaughan apparently next.

The Dogs would never do anything dodgy with a salary cap with all these ins would they.

Gotta love what the Doggies are doing. Making big moves and the necessary. I don't have enough knowledge on whether JMK is the right fit for 9 moving forward for them, but I know a player like Starling or Hodgson would be so valuable at 9 for them. And getting mixed answers for where Averillo fits in next year's side. He's an excellent strike player to have that can grow with age, but complementing burton in the halves would be big ask for him. Feel like the Doggies need a proper proven half.

TPG can play but he's more of a thug than he is a game winner. Vaughan had some good years in Canberra and St George, but he's BBQ'ing alone right now. Probably not worth signing.

Well, the Panthers are struggling aren't they......

I don't care about TPJ and I don't care about Penrith, I care that this sets an ugly precedent. TPJ has not been bad this year at all and he is a genuine gun player going to the premiership favourites for nothing, that isn't right. This will just continue to make the gulf between the good clubs and the rubbish ones like us even wider.

Not only that, this is also rewarding a player for allegedly meeting with another club while under contract directly leading to his current club being forced to jump on the front foot and boot him out.

So TPJ (more likely his agent, TPJ isn't this smart) has managed to 'legally' get a better offer from the Dogs and likely win a premiership on his way out. How can the NRL just be ok with these machinations? I'll answer it, they are incompetent that is why.



Chooks were allowed to sign SBW for the last few weeks last year.
As to how last year's grand finalists still have room in the cap, who knows?
As to why the NRL would enable all this, I'm equally stumped.
The player transfer system is becoming so fluid that it is in danger of next becoming gaseous.

Yep and the Roosters signing SBW didn't sit right either, fortunately he ended up sucking.

I agree with that.
What I can't understand is that the Broncos are supposed to have all these gun players that other clubs are desperate to recruit (and are recruiting). If these guys are so good why is Brisbane so poor? I was astounded at how easily they capitulated against the Tugers on the weekend.

Kevvie seems like a genuine sort of person, and a 'good bloke'. Having said that, I don't know if he's the smartest NRL coach going around. Time will tell, but he seems ok with a chock full of talent side (like a SOO team) in getting them to gell for a limited series of matches - but very inconsistent with varying levels of talent and application in a squad like the Broncos. The eagerness of many players wanting to get out and sign with other clubs should be a warning sign.

He's a glorified caretaker coach. Unfortunately it wasn't like the Broncos could just go out and sign Craig Bellamy after the 2018 debacle. In fact trying to sign Bellamy is what landed them in this mess in the first place.

Unfortunately the choice was either Kevin Walters or Paul Green. It was always going to be ugly and while it's somehow been worse than any of us could have imagined it's easier to swallow from an ex-player who is clearly passionate about the club and has been in the mix for years.

It doesn't help that he's inherited the team at such a turbulent time in the competition. I haven't seen anything like the state of the competition since the Super League War and the ensuing aftermath.

Akin to bowling the last ball underarm. Poor sportsmanship.
