You kinda have to do that. You can't just stockpile every young half that shows promise. You do what Melbourne does, pick one and develop them.
Yeah and what happens if they fizzle? You are left with your d*** in your hand.
They would be on small contracts. Boyd had a great combination with Fifita on the right edge.

How the f*** do we lose Tanah Boyd and Walker in two consecutive days? Wtf is going on with this club? Constantly losing players and not signing anything!
for some players (especially young players) it isn't about the money, they will go where there is an opportunity ... there isn't here, there may be at the Titans especially with Ash Taylor out

You just have to hope that you have made the right choice. Kids are not going to sit around and hope they get a shot, they need to see they actually have a viable path to first grade.

Also, having a combination with one player doesn't mean anything, you are either the best option to play halfback or not.

Do they even have scouts? It seems like they buy on hype. Robbo and Nick are delusional and think they're the Man United of the NRL, so if they have that mentality they will just be buying whichever hyped/ big name they can and ruining their team balance
Obviously they do, they found Walker before a single Broncos fan had ever heard of him. The hype came after their interest.

We still have Paix and I have also thought he was the far better prospect out of him and Boyd.

What do you think of this whole situation? Do you think in your opinion, we have made the right choice?

How do you choose a 18 year old as your long term halfback, its stupid.
Same could have been said about a 17 year old Karmichael Hunt at fullback.

Why don’t you give Dearden more than 5 games before you write him off.

So what do you suggest the club do then? Chain the poor bastard up to the goal posts at Red Hill and wait for Dearden to **** up so we can give him a run? Or even better, cut his hands off so he can't use a pen and sign a contract with someone else?

Not sure what you expected him and club to do mate. He obviously doesn't see a pathway here and thinks there are better opportunities at the Titans. Pretty fucking obvious.

so let me ask you this ... if you were in Boyd's shoes, you would hang around ISC on very little money hoping that the 2 or 3 guys ahead of you shit the bed enough for you to get a shot ... instead of going to a club where your shot could come a lot sooner?
Development players have to be on $75,000 and he trains with the full time squad- it's not exactly a hard luck life for a 18 year old.

Turpin hung around the got promoted to the 30 and his go. Not saying Boyd should do that but it does happen.

That’s a bit of an over exaggeration haha ... clown! His path at titans is blocked the same as it is here if not more.

Why would you assume his shot would be sooner with the titans?

in front of him at the Titans right now is Ryley Jacks

in front of him at the Broncos is Milford, Dearden, O'Sullivan and Possibly Paix.

common sense tells you which club has the easier path to first grade
