Eels are apparently trying to sign George Burgess before kick off. Maybe we can offload Lui and Abbey quickly and the Pommy blokes can get in his ear?
Half a pack of Bradford juniors? Yes, please.

That's more than Bradford has at the moment.

Either Jennings is going to Tigers inside the next wk. OR Gurgess to Eels. I think it will be the 1st one. https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/souths-...

Re: NFL Thread

I will be shocked if the Giants don’t draft a QB. The only way they don’t is if they get one through FA or trade, but I don’t see that happening with any of the current candidates. If I had to make a bold prediction regarding the Giants, I’ll go with the Raiders trading Carr to them in exchange for...

Dufty re-signs with the Dragons for another 2 years.. obviously why that one went quiet. So he cools his heels for 12 months in a decent team, and then fullback is his in 20/21. So far looks like we are holding fire and waiting to see what gets shaken out as the squads tighten. I really think CNK i...

I think Oldfield will start the year at fullback with CNK and Simonsson fighting it out for that wing spot. He’s trained all offseason there and I think he’ll get first crack in the dogs trial. That would not shock me, but we can’t play a full season with Oldfield at fullback and expect to make the...
