Milf is always welcome to stay if he's happy to prove himself in Queensland Cup this year first and then cop $150-200k a year to play alongside Reynolds as the junior Halves partner.
Yeah I've said before a contract of that value is taking the piss but around $400k would be reasonable. He's in a shambles at the moment but the ability is still there IMO.

of all the clubs rumoured to be chasing him ... the Storm are probably the worst ones for him to sign with.

their spine is set. it would guarantee that he spends lots more time in the ISC.

both us and the Bulldogs spines are much less guaranteed. each of us have one halves position guaranteed (Reynolds and Burton). the other halves spot is by no means guaranteed
I disagree, Gamble is the exact type of player Storm go for, high intensity and passionate player in that system he could certainly come out as a rep player.

They would probably make him a utIlity or develop him into Lock though, but with how injury prone their spine is he would get decent game time.


Weird actually, I was thinking this about a week ago thinking im surprised Storm wouldn't chase him he ticks all the boxes they look for a player, Storm don't usually chase stars they develop them from players with the right attitude.

I reckon he'd jump at $300k to stay in Brisbane.

But he's just watched Hynes go from his exact position to the Storm and come away with a new deal and new life.

If you're a ISC player looking to improve and play NRL that carries currency. People forget it was only 2016 Gamble was playing BRL and not in the Dolphins ISC team- if Storm say we can improve you look what we did for Hynes you would listen.
Just like they did for Ryley Jacks 😉

Should sign him to a longer term deal. Get him for cheap when his stock is low but rising. Vultures are circling tho.
100% he could be the next Cody Walker.a gem languishing in QCup for years before everyone wants him. Or even similar to Nico Hynes 🤦‍♂️

I wouldnt compare Gamble to Cody Walker. Walker Dominated at ISC level, Gamble hasnt even come close to his levels of performance in ISC. Hes been good in the ISC though, i just think in terms of where he is at this moment in time we shouldnt be paying him more than $200k a year. He's a back up half.

Well atm, we have half a season to go, and he's starting every week save for injury/suspension.

He’s not exactly setting the world on fire though. All he has going for him is his enthusiasm

We literally have no other half decent options. Its pretty damning on the state of our halves.

It is. But none the less, he is the go to week to week. 2-250k for a year or two seems fair. He will probably have played the most games in the halves by the end of the year.

I guess it is Kelly and Reynolds next year and Staggs too potentially

Remains to be seen. Anyone of the options we have next to Reynolds have some potential.
