    I think it's a decent swap and advantage to us. Bronson is 2 years younger, experienced at international level and has got the skills, has just lacked on a huge pay check.

    Wes on the other hand, showed us what he could do last year, signed his new deal and now it's like zzzzzz. Funny how St George are no longer interested him. Of course he knocked them back but based on his form they're probably breathing a sigh of relief.

    Do the people concerned from each club meet before June 30 and show each other their Scanlen's Gum player cards. "Got it, got it, got it, hang on we haven't got a Harrison."

    I used to love Harrison as a player, always thought he was very under-rated and one of Canberra's best at the time. If he can get his old form back then will be a great switch for us!

    Wow, I'd love to get Bronson Harrison. He's an awesome wide-running backrower when in form, which is what we need

    He's had a few ordinary seasons at Canberra, but I think that has a bit to do with the coach and the overall performances of the team.

    Because yet another backrower is realllly what the knights need to be signing. Soon the entire team will be made up of backwrowers. Recruit the essentials before going on the annual salary cap waste.

    Would love to see Bronsin here! If we do end up signing Harrison as well as Stagg... would that mean a move to prop for both Houtson and Costigan?

    he's a great player, will benefit us for sure, but we need front rowers!

    Yeah its interesting, the Raiders are looking to free up cap space and are in need of outside backs. We all know Harrison is rep quality, this could be a massive bargain for us. Really hoping it comes off. No doubt there will be some cash exchanging hands in this deal

    It'll probably be impossible for Naiqama to get back into the side now with Gagai, Tahu and Sau whereas Harrison could easily start ahead of guys like Edwards, McKinnon, Cuthbertson etc so it'll be a top deal for us if it happens imo.
