We need a halfback

be a interesting exercise to see when Boyd, Maccs and Gilletts contracts are up and off the books who the top 3 half are at that time (what are we looking at, 2021-22 I guess..?)

Id imagine if we go with Dearden and SoS we'd have a large portfolio of games played to make the decision to either stick or move on..?

Id say those young group of half the Roosters have may be approaching their prime by then...maybe Dylan Edwards at Parra too...

Seibold said that Dearden is back in full training as of yesterday, and they'll figure out whether to ease him back in through QCup or throw him straight back in the mix.

I wouldnt try to rush him back. Young kid with a few games under his belt, his first injury in first grade and then returning against a melbourne team who will work him over. I dont think it would be best in the long run.

Is it essential he return asap? Is he a difference maker between a win and loss (i.e like lockyer often was)? Not yet. So i would think his return should wait until game fit

Thinking of the dearden/sos situation, i have said that i wouldnt mind running them 6 and 7. Reflecting on the sharks game sos appeared more dangerous and made breaks on the leftside (attacking). Does anyone know if this is his "natural" side?

Running dearden on the right and sos on left could be an option.

It's tricky cause to me they both seem like halfbacks but not really 5/8s. I think a cool head, organising half with a good passing game for 7 and a strong running, evasive and with strong 1 on 1 d for 5/8. I wouldn't mind seeing how bird would go beside either of SOS or Deardon but at the moment I'd say give it to SOS to give Deardon a chance to find his voice in qcup.

So when Deardon does come back......its Turpin to 9...or 14? TBH, Segeyaro could do with a few games in the lower grade.
It would be criminal to leave Turpin out of the side completely. We can't have both he and Seggy on the bench. One of them has to go.

McCullough is weakening the team by being there. Seibold has to make that call sooner or later.

I feel kind of the opposite funnily enough. Dearden looks a fairly traditional 7, while SOS seemed to be play his excellent half as basically a running 6. They could compliment each other extremely well.

Segy should start at 9, Turpin should be on the bench as a utility. Macca should be fighting for one of the other three bench spots (good luck with that).

But back in the real world, Macca will start at 9, Turpin will be back on the bench, and Segy will be jiggling his nutsack out in the suburbs.

Unless turpin signs elsewhere.

But the board and media say that Macca is the heart and soul of the broncos. He might even get a statue one day
Do they though or is that just the consensus on BHQ? He's been slotted back into the team due to injuries and there's every chance he plays ISC next year. Let's try some optimism for a change and back this team to make the finals, even though this year has been abysmal.

My man. Haven’t seen you around in a while. I had a feeling you’d be back once we cracked the top 8. I really want seibold to succeed and I think he will.
