    I understand marley. Anyone that has been watching the bloke for awhile knows this from his penrith days. Why he couldnt get the fullback spot there. All players have room for improvement and learning right through out there careers.
    U mentioning its the thing dallin needs to work on.....which is 100% correct.
    And people get there knickers in a knot.

    Hell yeah. Now it will just take deano 2 more years how to use them both on the field to there best strenghs.
    Which really should be sorted by round 1.
    They have to switch on any attacking sets off the back of a penalty in opposition 40.
    At least to dallin improves more with his hands. More points imo.

    Players leave clubs for many reasons not just money. Oates wants to stay with Brisbane which he has stated often. Why would we go back to a player that has previously knocked us back with an offer to good to refuse, now that is dumb.

    Is isaako off contract? Would rather him them Later....he will be a gun in the future and would cost less than half the cost of Oates

    Boyd will get the Inglis treatment without a doubt.

    If there is no proof to verify this signing,the title should be changed from ‘LAND’ to ‘CHASE’

    He should fly up to Melbourne and do some work with Slater or even do some work with Matty Johns, any sort of improvement in that area would be massive for him and us.

    Personally, Oates and Leilua are better then Noodle, Korisou and Ese'ese in my opinion. Yet people were ready to burn Belmore down when we didn't sign them, and now they are complaining that we have been linked to Oates and Leilua. Its laughable.

    Yh because we put 30 on the Broncos so now some people think everything's good lol. I'd personally only go after Joey because he's individually brilliant and has the ability to bring others into the game while playing in a position we're clearly lacking in. Oates on the other hand isn't at all required, we're reasonably solid on the wing for now and don't really need to make such a large investment there.

    Vuni and Manu would be a better option I reckon.

    Oates is a good, destructive winger who will end up in the back row in the not-too-distant future... neither of those positions are a priority IMO

    I'm not even sure DWZ's had a pre season at Fullback. I'm pretty sure last 2 years Edwards was always going to be the Fullback going into the season. The only thing I see fans really saying negative about DWZ is his ball playing, as long as he improves in that area he's going to be a really good Fullback.

    We can keep on assuming we will sign this or that player,
    The possibilities are many but most importantly is making sure we get the spine and the team balance right.
    Fullback...We have DWZ and I believe the next super star Fullback in Meaney if he bulks up...covered
    5/8...........We have Foran, Lewis, JMK and Hopa I believe would be a sensation there...covered
    1/2...........We have Cogger and Wakeham, they next year to make a claim...???
    Hooker.....We have no real hooker...After seeing some highlights Brittain should be our man !!!
