Our good mate Nahla probably knows a bit more than we do, but obviously Cameron Smith's love of money, premierships and records is keeping him in the game. I dare say Cronk winning two premierships has only inflamed/motivated Cameron even more.
I honestly baffled ,you have all the records,plenty of money ,i dont know what the motivation is...i can honestly hand on heart say away from footy he is a champion bloke

You're a long time retired I guess. If you still enjoy playing footy then why not keep going? It seems that everyone is so quick to push people into retirement these days.

I certainly feel for Brandon if promises were made though.

I think a lot of people saw Cam extending and playing close until he was very old, respectfully.

Apparently Fafita is joining the Titans (announced this week) and Walters is staying on for Queensland for another year

Hopefully he goes. They've made too many poor, over priced purchases. This might be the one to kick start the Titts again.

As for Walters, if he wins this season, he deserves it. Don't think there is too many candidates worthy and applying.

Well, I hope they do get him, and then I hope the Titans are responsible when they get Cartwright/Proctor/Peachey's etc money off the books. I hear they are trying to help Shannon Boyd retire (medically), so it is interesting if they can also get that money off the books.

Cartwright's achievements have been well documented, I think Proctor has a good dig most games, and Peachy can play just seems to play a different role every few games. All are on overs I'd guess. Boyd such a waste. He could of been one of the best in the league, maybe if he stayed in Canberra.

I always felt Boyd was a bit overrated. He was just way bigger than everybody else. Then by about 2018, the game has changed/ sped-up, and has only got faster. He cannot handle the speed of the game anymore.

The Raiders held onto that Boyd and Paulo combination too long, and once they moved them on with a more mobile replacements, they became a top team again.

So John Bateman to the Dogs, Dragons or England?

I wonder if the following would happen: Fafita re-signs with the Donkeys for 1 season, so Mal Meninga gets Bateman to the Titans.

Nick Cotric, I thought we should have made a play for him when last available...can’t seem to crack centre at Raiders.

So Ricky Stuart is throwing temper tantrums down here in Canberra. I just remembered that this clown walked out on Parramatta. I guess Ricky has a very short memory :)

And now he is behind Mike Oldfield.

You know the club doesn't rate you as a centre, when the dude from Tubular Bells is picked ahead of you...

Cameron Smith... Brandy.... Harry Grant. Well, one could argue it is an excellent dillema for Melbourne to have, but you can't fit three hookers in one team, and there's no guarantee two other players would even want to play in other positions.

Harry Grant seems happy at the Tigers, but would a Queensland move be on the cards for him?

No idea what Brandy would do, and not that I'd share anyway, but our good friend in here is being tight lipped anyway (rightly so).
