    Yeah I don't think anything is confirmed with Hipgrave, but I could be wrong.

    I would love to know, well I guess we'd all love to know who we are actually targeting for next season??

    Toohey said there's plenty going on behind the scenes but has denied some of the obvious ones like Woods & Carney, he's confirmed Tim Grant is one guy they're interested in but it would be very interesting to know who else is on the list, I'm guessing there are a few contracted players on the list that is being kept very quiet.

    Also looks like the Broncos Thoroughbreds is back in full swing, Jayden S'ua to stay at Broncos despite interest from Souths amongst others. This despite the club re-signing Gillett who plays the same position, one would think they'd both be on serious coin. TPJ, Lodge & Sims expected to also stay, whilst the club has locked up youngster David Fifita as well.

    Also they apparently have the coin to keep Payne Haas and Isaako, looks like they'll have to stick with Nikorima at half unless they can come up with some clever book keeping.

    Talk on the Matty Johns show that Jack Bird and the Broncos are not happy. Matty mentioned that Knights and Sharks were options for him. Id be happy with him as a centre here if the Donks paid half his wage (unlikely but one can dream). Moga to wing where he was awesome for the Roosters.

    Moga wont play wing ever.

    Bird aint worth 500k, he's tough but no star like the media ravved about.

    Robert Jennings or Hymel Hunt would be a good pickup and cheaper than Bird I’d think.

    Jack who? Does he play league. Haven't heard of him in 2 years. No thanks. Overhyped.

    Jennings boys talked about playing together and now it's not so much about Michael as his brothers, for the right price we could have all three with experience and potential

    Michael will stink up the place. Living on his reputation. Two younger brothers would be okay.

    Ahh I think you'll find Michael was the one calling the defensive reads. His brother has to follow. Both were below average.

    Read in the courier mail today Corey Oats is off contract at season end. By the way he was talking, Brisbane don’t want him. He still thinks he is a second rower but. Would love him here

    Corey oates would be a great pickup. Just a shame we don't really have a position for him if he don't wanna play wing.

    No use signing big money wingers unless they're Radradra level. Either develop your own stars or sign any number of wingers who will do the job for minimal money.

    I reckon he’s better than your average winger. Maybe it’s just me but he’s one of the best wingers
