If we don't get Brandon Smith we're in a little bit of trouble (everyone else good looks locked up) when we look at who else is out there atm. I'm not the biggest fan of McInnes (more so playstyle and attacking ability), I'd take him but he is going to be expensive and I don't think he's the right player to splash the cash on.

He is a young poor mans version of Benji Marshall. He is a elusive ball runner with a good step.

Yeah for sure he's not bad but he has a long way to go if he wants to play NRL.

This year is probably make or break for him.
It's amazing what some players can achieve if given a chance I reckon Thurston was underated when he first played nrl

Many on here keep saying we need a metre eating prop (to replace Napa) but I haven't heard any names suggested other than Emre Guler. There's not many available now for 2022 besides Aaron Woods and Tolman LOL ( I hope Barrett's not a fan of Woods). If Napa doesn't do anything special this year which is very likely who would you replace him with ? No use naming players already signed for 2022 unless you have some inside info or genuine belief about them being released early.

I just hope we sign a big body prop like a Junior Paulo - someone who can bend the line like Kasiano used to (how's he going in the UK by the way ?).

George Burgess ? Just released by his UK club. If he recovers from hip surgery (7 months) will be looking for a club in 2022.

I've read we've been keen on Patrick Carrigan for a while but I've never seen him play. Is he any good ? He's in contract until end of 2022 though.

Any decent props from the list below ?

The way the Dragons look to be imploding I reckon we could try and nab Paul Vaughan
