His father isn't in charge of signing people...
He would have a say, and so would Ikin, DD and Walters worked together to get Reynolds. Walters isn't out there signing family members without it being approved by people much smarter than himself.some people's opinion varies on that.
if it is a popular signing then they believe Ikin's responsible
if they hate the signing then they believe Kev is responsible
Nashtradamus warned us this would happen:We'll find out when his contract is announced. Personally I'm happy to give Walters another year based on his performances and I was satisfied with the Walters/Paix combination when it was fully fit.

No doubt we've had our eye on Billy from the second he was born. We were just waiting for his value to drop low enough we could afford him. It was a complete coincidence his father was the incoming coach, and his Uncle the head of bus tickets.We had people in those roles before Ikin and DD arrived.
Pfft....a quote from NashyNashtradamus warned us this would happen:
I am worried that Kev will recruit someone like Ash Taylor. Possibly Corey Norman. Potentially Ben Hunt. Maybe Moses Mbye. If we swap Bird for Hunt I'd be okay with that. Hope they get Taylor then. I can't see him leaving the Titans though especially if they have a good season in 21.broncoshq.com
I’m hoping Smoothy starts next year with Paix at 14. Firstly I haven’t heard of the Plath rumour, secondly, if true it will 100% be a train and trial deal meaning any top 30 hooker is above him, thirdly, he is a halfback not a hooker so everything before this becomes irrelevant.With Smoothy and probably Plath (rumour) signing they are building some good competition.
Although I expect BW to be resigned, I would not be that surprised if he was not
Smoothy would likely be in front of him and Plath, Mozer and Paix around may be enough to round out the Hooker position without BW
Assuming Mozer is now on a top 30 contract we will have 3 Hookers, but that said Mozer is not NRL ready at all yet so signing Billy is not a bad idea, especially since we lost 3 backup half options(Gamble, Kelly and Roberts), even if you buy McHunts story telling he would be fine as a depth option signing on a 1 year contract.Is there any word on Billie's contract? We're made 2 solid signings in our spine back up so I believe we shouldn't offer him a new contract. Billy isn't NRL standard and he shouldn't be at the club next year.
Did he have a good season? It was ok, not sure about good. He missed the most tackles in the teamSome people just can't see past the fact that he's the coaches kid, they don't even want to entertain the possibility.
He had a good season and has earned his spot in the 17. Prior to arriving at the club he had barely punched out a full season in the NRL, who knows, maybe there's a bit of improvement in him. He did have a pretty bad knee injury at the Tigers.
