    Rumour that Melbourne will have a crack at Sezer

    I won’t be surprised to see Croft end up at Broncos, he’s a Queenslander and seems to be on the nose at Storm

    Sezer would blossom at Storm under Bellamy and playing alongside Slater, Smith and Munster.

    I’m a fan of Sezer dating back to his Titans days. Would love to see him playing 7 for Storm. If not, 7 for Broncos paired with Milford.

    Dan is when he has a go. Up and down like a yoyo. Dropped to bench this week.

    Prior to season start think we were all saying our pack looked good and strong, some are in need of a good kick up the bum

    Our pack has been the biggest dissapointment for me aswell. Esse Esse is the only one playing to potential.
    Dan was averaging close to 150m a game at the back end of last season.
    Lillyman was averaging over 100m a game last season.
    Jacob was averaging over 100m a game at the back end of last season.
    Dan has been good the last two weeks and looks like he is building in to the season nicely.

    Lillyman's 2017 form would be nice to have, or eben 80% of that.

    Lillymans stolen a pay cheque from us. Slipped through the cracks and came here for a retirement pay cheque.

    Have to admit it did seem to go against his character bludging, if his busted up, surprised he got past the medical.

    The two guys I was excited about seeing develop further this year were Dan Saifiti and Mitch Barnett. Both guys have been big disappointments, IMO.

    I think that generally our pack from last season was a bit overrated which has carried over to this year and Esee is showing us that, he has been far and away our best forward for consistency yet was just another forward in a good pack at Broncos. Dan has been disappointing but coming back, Fitz is the improver, JSaf, Barnett, King and Yates are good reserve graders, Guerra has been good, Heighinton not quite but gives his all, Lillyman disappointing. Based on that we are at least 3 good big forwards down on requirement maybe 4-5. Buhrer? not sure what category to put him in

    Ah Mau and Boyd would do me if we could buy those 2 I'd be happy . Boyd and Daniel starting with Ah Mau and Jacob in reserves with Barnett and Ese,ese to lock .

    Forget who plays where, first of ask Esee where he wants to play and give it to him, he has earned that then in order of merit ask the others starting with DanS, stop giving positions to players that don't deserve it. If Esee say wants to play 13 then find the next two best props and continue to fill positions based on ability and what fits the team. If someone wants to play prop and positions gone there is reserve grade, let's start our best 6+3 forwards.

    Ese,ese said after the trials that he enjoyed and would love to be starting Lock and besides that he impressed me when he played there that's why i said him at lock .
    IMO Daniel is at his best when starting prop and if we had Boyd he would have to be starting prop too imo ...
    Also Ah mau is very good off the bench and Jacob gives us that size of the bench too and Fitzy and Guerra are our two best back rowers .

    The Newcastle Knights are interested in bringing Leeds Rhinos utility Joel Moon back to the NRL for the 2019 season.
    Moon played for the Brisbane Broncos and the New Zealand Warriors from 2006 to 2011.

    For the past six and a half seasons he has been playing in England in Super League.

    Now the Queenslander, who is off-contract, is keen to return to home.

    Inside Sport understands Moon's management have held discussions with the Knights.

    The 29-year-old can play in the centres and halves

    An Australian Schoolboy in 2005, he played for the Indigenous All Stars in 2011.

    Moon has scored 105 tries in 250 games in both the NRL and Super League.
    I just read this on inside sport.com
