Glad we have resigned him early.

Now for To’o then see if Tahmou wants another years.

Apart from May, the rest are a bit hit and miss.

SHF, I’d like to see the Blores re-signed. I rate both of them - like I rated Braidon Burns & we let him go…


I have to admit Bryan I haven’t seen much of the Blores, so I’ll taoe your word on it

Gotta say, I wasn’t fussed given what I’ve seen from our back ups. If Crichton can add a few kegs, he is very lean, he will be awesome. His skillset already says he will be a star, he is not afraid of contact, he’s fast…could be Penrith GI :flushed:

Anyone else think we should be wrapping up Burton quickly? Ok, only 3 first grade games, but I like what I see, and suspect other clubs coaching will be sniffing

YES. Sign him up now !

Yep…get him on a decent length contract ASAP.

Kaide Ellis ⮕ St George Illawarra Dragons (Released)

Jed Cartwright ⮕ South Sydney Rabbitohs (Released)

It’s being reported that Gold Coast are looking to offload Bryce, possibly before June 30.

Would we even consider it? Although showing promise when he was here, he’s gone backwards at the Titans (no surprise there).

It’s not like we are not well covered for backrowers. He certainly wouldn’t get a look in against Kikau, Martin, Yeo or even May.

Would hope not. Sorry to say, being a name with long associations and all, but just no.

On current form definitely not. Maybe if he could get himself back to his 2014 form.

Why would you bother?

No from me, he is more trouble than he is worth, plus his game mindset would not suit our current all in team mentality.

Jed Cartwright releases to join South Sydney effective immediately Cartwright released to join South Sydney - Panthers

Good Luck Jed.

I have a feeling this has cleared space for Staines to come into the top 30. Wouldn’t be surprised if he replaces MWZ this weekend

You wouldn’t let Cartwright anywhere near our Club.
The guy missed his opportunity with Panthers and personally i doubt if any club would pick him up, as long as its not with us i don’t care whether he straps on a boot again.
