I do not think the report said that. It was delicately written that inferred they had agreed to a ?

He was pretty keen on returning to North Queensland so maybe he'll just play q cup for the Pride and hope for the best?

It’s possible the club told him to go and clean himself up and they’d look at him again in the future if he has turned things around.

What about if we get JT to pull the boots back on again for the last few rounds? Player 30.

Harden up Jonno, the club needs you!

He is good depth, hope we re-sign him for 1-2 years.
I think he could make the switch to Centre with a good preseason under his belt, has good foot work and already defends in the line at 5/8 now.

What’s this obsession some people have with playing players (e.g Linnett should play second row, Morgo should play fullback) out of position. Pretty obvious from the 2017 GF run that Te Maire’s best position is as a 5/8.

Te Maire’s Is not going to force Morgan out of 5/8 and I think he has the potential to be a better Centre than Kahu.

Some players have the capability to play in more than one position, like Luke Lewis for example, played origin on the wing then as time went on he developed into a fine back rower. I dont think it necessarily means they should switch positions right now, but it can be an option to get a bit more life out of some footballers.

for the love of David Bouveng I pray to god we go out and get some new outside backs.
Reckon we should move Matt Scott out to the wing to help him get found out less in defence. Two birds, one stone.

Just saw this on Facey:

View attachment 1384

We sign him on a two-year, no f***-ups deal for $150k-$200k (there were rumours he was on $300k-$400k) after he has completed rehab and shows genuine remorse and change - I'd be cool with him coming back.

I know that Sharks tried that with Barba and they made them go to market value. Nene is busted and has issues on and off the field - not out the realms of speculation to get him cheaper then we did, especially if he wants to stay up here.

Thoughts?
