    Andrew Webster was mentioning on 2UE on Saturday that the Melbourne Storm Will be giving permission to Brodie Croft to speak to other clubs as they don't see him as their long term halfback and see Jerome Hughes as the future....should the dogs go after him? Would he be the answer to our half back dilemma?

    We have Lewis, cogger and Wakeham who all play the same position, plus Foran still on the books for next year. In saying that, I think everyone I mentioned is off contract end of next year, I still don't see Croft as the answer moving forward. So it's a no from me

    He's a really average player that is getting found out playing with Smith and Munster imagine what he will be like without that surrounding him!

    You can count on one hand the amount of players that have gotten better once they leave the Storm as well. I wouldn't go anywhere near him.

    The only thing he has going for him right now is that he is a dogs fan

    He would have suited the Tigers best tbh. But now they have young Walters that's not going to happen. Broncos or Titans seem the likely destination.

    They have Brooks and Benji should go around again. Walters is for Hooker depth, possibly starting with Liddle out.

    Storm got it wrong I think... sure Brody ain't the greatest player, but Hughes is a better fullback than half, and the Raiders found out Ryan Papenhuyzen hard... now to the point of him coming to us... meh

    May sound arrogant but if Storm don't want him, why should we?

    Storm don't lose players unless they want to.

    They'd just rather keep Papenhuyzen and Hughes. 3 can't go into 2.

    Yeah that's obvious but if he really was wanted, Bellemy would of upped his "fringe benefits" and kept him.

    Can he play anywhere in the spine or is he a specialist?

    I can't say 100%. I'd say Croft can just play 7. Whereas Hughes can play 1/6 and 7.

    Tigers need to move forward from Benji and Farah... Walters should be the 6

    Because he isn't a robot and Bellamy demands pin point perfection. He was dropped for his defence. His attack is better than Hughes.

    If competition with Broncos or another club then yes. We actually wouldn't sign him if that was the case, as we're reserving that route for top players.

    Cogger is a very similar player and has a much higher ceiling than Croft I believe. No need to upset the herd and put someone ahead of Cogger Lewis Foran Wakeham
