    Brown & Moons are hoping so !!!!!

    This aint last season there won't be as much movement I don't think, Dogs have sorted their cap out now we're banking on Manly players wanting out after Barrett walks

    Now I'm not saying Dargan is going to do what Ponga has coming in to grade, but weren't ponga's stats fairly average in lower grades prior to making NRL?

    Who knows how Dargan is going to turn out but if smarter judges than us reckon he is a talent we have to go with that. If we sign him just have to hope he turns out but with all junior players it is a roll of the dice.

    Ponga made the NYC team of the year as a 17/18 year old and a 18/19 year old, and if he were playing in our under 20s this year, he'd make the team of the year as a 19/20 year old too.

    His stats weren’t deserving of it however. Definitely made team of the year due to his reputation.

    If Pearce goes down next year we're screwed, so I'm not really sure the backup half situation is that important.

    Cogger and Lamb have a better pedigree in terms of junior reps than anyone we might bring in, and we saw how that worked out.

    Cogger and Lamb pedigrees?

    Seriously slots my Corgi (pictured) has a longer and more notable pedigree, Australian Champion and her Grandad All American Champion!

    We are hearing Brisbane’s former Australian Schoolboys halfback Troy Dargan is a player on the radar following the mid-week signing of Warriors playmaker Mason Lino but Brown is yet to meet the 20-year-old.

    The interest in Dargan may explain why Bulldogs halfback Matt Frawley, who previously met with the club, is no longer in the frame.

    Not sure this is right ...I reckon young Lino is a talent and coming here to push for a 1st grade spot and Dargan would not have been picked to play for NSW U20's if he wasn't playing good footy .
    What if 7 of the 10 missed tackles in that game were from him Kicking and chasing or just chasing a kick , first man there missed the tackle but stopped the guy long enough for his teammates to get there .
    3 of those 7 times the ball was dislodged
    2 of those 3 times Dargan's team scored because of the lose ball
    Stats for you lol
