Should the Broncos make a play for Ponga

Yes, absolutely. This side near an out and out star, he is one and will be one of the absolute best in a year or two.

Every elite side has an absolute gun (or two) in their spine:

Roosters - Keary, Tedesco, Cronk, Friend
Storm - Smith, Munster
Rabbits - Walker, Cook, Reynolds
Sea Eagles - DCE, TTurbo
Raiders - Hodgson

These are the sides that can win it this year. Who do the Broncos have? Milford?

Maybe but we also need a half and he would have to replace Milford. So it would be a somewhat sideward step.

I have no doubt that if we had a spine with Ponga and Pearce instead of Milford this season we would be doing far better.

But I love Milf and think we would be doing far better if he had someone like Pearce controlling the game.

One forward, Hass

You know, I was thinking this morning, for the first time I can ever remember, I don't think Brisbane right now would have a single Australian rep player.
I agree with that, Cripes , when was the last time that happened, never. Hass will get there you'd think, and probably Fifita as well. I guess we all thought Milford would be it for us, sadly no.

I was just thinking, would the Broncs even have a NZ rep? Man, this side is bad.

one of the next great fullbacks is up for a new contract...Turbo Tom...

Maybe we should watch and see exactly what the market rate for him ends up being before deciding on a campaign (and it would be a campaign) to convince Ponga to join...

and what that would cost...

All he's really proven is he's a better 1 than Boyd.
Oh, well I see a player who's actually comfortable with the number on his back, knows what he has to do, and also knows how to do it. I think he's shown more promise back there than we have ever seen from him in the halves. Hell, watching him there, it really feels like we have wasted 4 years of his career to keep a useless prick happy.

That's excellent that you think those things, I don't argue that he hasn't been good there, very effective against the weaker teams in the competition. I just think he's better for us in the halves and a pairing of him at 6 and Holmes at 1 would be excellent.

I agree with you about this. If Dearden or one of the other halves can take over the organisational duties that is our back three of the spine sorted.
