Not a rumour, just an opinion.. He's now the fourth string half behind Cleary, Luai and May after he was dropped off the bench tonight.

He's exactly what we need and is the best young half potentially available.

I know he's under contract and Penrith rate him highly but he's blocked for a run and he can't be happy about it... The club have to get in his ear to try and poach him. Don't waste money on a hobbled Foran. Sign Burton for a similar price and look to the future. Make it happen!

Does anyone know why he was dropped ? I guess May could cover fullback and hooker better than Burton... Still a wierd call. Games pretty good though, enjoying the contest so far.

I hope Jahrome Luai continues to play well so he pushes Burton out..

Yeah I think that's it. May offers more utility value and Burton was an unused sub a few times. With no reserve grade for him to play, he can't be happy being the ball boy.

And with the Panthers playing so well they have no reason to drop Luia who is also playing well.

Sounds way too logical and progressive to happen. Blake Green sounds like a more appropriate Bulldogs kind of signing

Considering all the players we've been linked to he doesn't really fit the mold - he's too good. We're the new mediocre Bulldogs - we only go only for plodders. It's more likely we'll sign the 7th string crap half that Penrith don't want, that's our style.

TBH, I wouldn't be surprised if anyone at the club has even heard of him. Someone tell to Nasheed to get on it and get it done

I think he might move into a ball playing edge back rower or lock like Wade Graham. He’s a big boy. Would be happy if we signed him.

Yeah, similar style and frame to Campese.

Good halves are to hard to find yet Panthers have 4 - seriously wtf?

Would be a smart move, something the club doesn’t do
