    Yes but bumping up his price could come at a cost to the Bronco's by having to release a player that may be of interest to us...Staggs for instance

    Staggs resigned today. But hoping you are right and we land another quality player as a result.

    Whilst he was a bench player during his start in the nrl
    These players eg payne haas and fisher Harris are playing for there country and killing it from day dot
    PlZ don’t insult Payne haas and compare him to tolman ever.
    Surely your kidding right

    knew staggs had re-signed
    Just had to be put on paper
    If broncs flick Darius doyd and fat Fcuk Milford they might make the top 4 next season
    Turpin should start before McCullough too
    McCullough offers sfa and should’ve been punted last contract

    Nah offer him 400k
    I’m sure that will get him across
    So according to some imaginary rule book;
    Only fullbacks and halfbacks are worth 1m $
    So I guess jason taumolo is overpaid also and not worth it?
    Fifita is worth a million dollars easy

    poor Jason taumolo should start paying back the mill a year the cows are giving him
    Wow
    You’d think some of the kennel members are spending their own money when trying to sign players

    can I ask you why
    In All honesty
    Why would it be terrible to lose him
    He’s hit his ceiling
    He ain’t going to get any better or improve
    Served the club brilliantly and with distinction
    But then what
    You’d chose him over a David Fifita or jai arrow moving forward?

    You must have missed the first 12 rounds then
    When he and Adam Elliot were competing with most missed tackles in the team?
    700k for a broken down Jackson
    No thanks

    I could say the whole team was garbage until mid season (I still think Jackson was one of our best overall, he's our captain and an experienced player so he's going to be in the headlights more).

    I wouldn't say he's broken now. Just sign him on a two to three year extension nothing crazy.

    A team like the Knights would kill to sign Jackson. I don't want to low ball him. Anything in the 600-700k range is fine with me.

    We have money to keep Jackson and buy Fifita and Arrow but nothing suggests that's the direction we're recruiting since half the talent for 2021 is already locked up (and better options allowed to be retained or go elsewhere).

    I honestly think it's ludicrous to not retain Jackson (he's one of the best captains in the game) also I'm just going to throw in Elliott doesn't deserve as much hate as he gets since you mentioned him.

    A team re-building and wanting to be in Top 4 can not have a fg roster comprising so many of..

    Tolman, Elliott, Jackson, Sue, Smith, Britt.

    There's only room for 1, maybe 2 at the most.

    Haas, Fifita, JFH, Bateman are the new era type forwards. The importance of every position is becoming more and more apparent.

    You don't have them, you aren't competitive.

    Bateman is totally different to Haas and Fifita. And 3 out of those 4 forwards led their team no where last season. Which those two clubs developed them. Why as a club should we spend huge money on that type of player? The only big money player that’s likely to move is Latrell and no one wants him here. In this era he would be the X factor the club needs not another forward.
    The easiest way for this club to become elite is to develop our juniors but that requires patience and there is zero of that on the kennel.

    The point was they are runners and can create opportunities for themselves and others.

    As for "they lead them no where" ...they cant win it on their own of course...they helped more than our alternatives.

    You missed the whole point. It was that we have too many of the same nuggety, slow running, small stature, no passing game forwards.

    Coaches aren't assembling teams nowdays with an over abundance of that type of player. We have too many.



    "Why as a club should we spend huge money on that type of player? The only big money player that’s likely to move is Latrell and no one wants him here. In this era he would be the X factor the club needs not another forward"

    Will leave that right there.

    Very happy we are developing players but we need the right type of player..not a stacked forward line up that all offer the same thing and little attack.

    You have zero insight into how our board operates. Same as everyone else on the kennel.

    "Quit yo jiba Jaba!!"

    We were the first to turn Mitchell down, and everyone lost their shit. Now we are all seeing that every other club has followed our lead and withdrawn their offers. Even the club he is currently contracted to.
    This to me says that our board knows exactly what it wants, and that they wont be making rash decisions. Well played I say.

    How about SBW. How much do people think he'd be worth if we were paying him ?

    He is the heart and soul of this team. The boys really dug in the second half of the season and his game lifted.

    Would be terrible to lose him mate, that’s all.

    As much as I’d like Fifita to come here I can’t see it happening.

    I’d rather Jackson than Arrow if he could keep that form up from the backend of the year.
